Posted by: alexkidd - 08-05-2018, 07:33 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 SLIM version - Replies (2)

- format an USB drive to FAT32
- download http://retrorangepi.download/retropie_folder.tar.gz or http://www.retrorangepi.org/retrostone_folder.tar.gz (RetroStone only)
- extract contents of tarball (roms, BIOS, music, splashscreens and retropiemenu folders) to the root of the drive
- populate roms folders
- power on the board with usb drive inserted

NOTE: roms will play from USB, there will no copying from USB to sdcard or emmc

  Orangepi, this stranger.
Posted by: cyborg - 08-05-2018, 04:22 PM - Forum: GENERAL TALK - Replies (2)

Hi guys, I have an Orange PI Lite, which I'm learning to know ...
I confess that I am fasting Linux, Retropie, Retrorange Pi (from what I understand is a variant of Retropie), etc ....
So I started hacking and searching for information, but the network is really poor in information (or at least I found very little information) on Orange PI and RetrOrange PI.

Start from the beginning:

I downloaded the RetrOrange PI image from its source site: http://www.retrorangepi.org/download/

Mounted this image sull'orange pi lite, I managed to set the various commands, to insert for now the Rom of Mame, Final Burn Alpha, the Nintendo Game Boy and some other console, just to try them ....

The procedure for the Roma is very simple, just copy them to the respective folders in:

Desktop - Retropie - Roms - DESIRED EMULATOR.

For MAME, I noticed that two emulators are pre-installed, that is MAME2003 and Advance Mame ....
I could not figure out how to choose the emulator since I have the Mset2003 rom set (0.78)
but there is no AdvanceMame that is compatible with my romset, but unfortunately it is not "NO-NAG" and therefore a big interruption ...
I solved that it is by pure chance, putting the rom, rather than in the folders of the respective mames, in the folder called "ARCADE",
so from the retropie menu I will not choose mameadance anymore to play but ARCADE very simply ...

The last thing I could not solve in an orthodox way is how to remove any emulator from the retropie menu.
Well, to overcome this, I tried to open emulation folders that do not interest me at the moment
and copy their contents into a subfolder created at the time and by magic that emulator has disappeared from the retropie menu.

Ok now, let's move on to the problem that I can not solve ....

- PROBLEM: I can not insert the emulators' snaps (for now I'm trying and re-testing several times with the mame)
There is no verse ... I tried to load them in folders everywhere (perhaps, indeed certainly omitting the exact)
 I also created the snapshot folder, which from what I saw, does not exist in the mame folders ...
Do you have any plans, or better still some guides, to help me with this problem and others that I could meet in the future with RETRORANGE PI?

Sorry for the long speech, and thank you in advance to those who will give me a few minutes.
Orazio (cyborg)

  3.5mm audio video output vs hdmi
Posted by: bodtx - 08-04-2018, 11:39 AM - Forum: HARDWARE DISCUSSION - Replies (2)

Which output is better
HDMI to VGA whith this kind of converter https://m.fr.aliexpress.com/item/32805665381.html ?
Or using the 3.5mm audio and video output 

As using the 3.5mm one require some configuration, for now I'll use the HDMI output. Except if 3.5 is better

  Can't get both official PS3 controller working
Posted by: genzi0401 - 08-01-2018, 12:02 PM - Forum: SUPPORT - Replies (3)

I did bluetooth pairing correctly both my TWO official PS3 controllers in the retropie setup gui. It worked very fine in the emulation station front end.

Somehow when I launched any games, controller #1 is controlling both P1 and P2. Controller #2 does not record any input. Retroarch does detect my both PS3 controllers at different port during game launcher with the text displayed at the bottom left with same name "Sony Playstation®3 Controller". I have no idea how to fix it.

After searching some post everywhere, I went to in game Retroarch Menu to change User 1 and User 2 Device Index. I was so lost when there was only one option, which was the "Sony Playstation®3 Controller (#1)" for both User 1 and 2.

I just cannot get User 2 Device Index to set to something else. Either the same "Sony Playstation®3 Controller (#1)" or "none". It seems the system is detecting both my controllers as the same controller. Things were weird when both controllers having different LED light order, which may indicate both controllers were actually connected to system.

Anybody can help to fix this?
