  Audio help
Posted by: Azzizza - 04-04-2020, 07:33 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.3 - go to www.retrorangepi.org/forum - Replies (3)

Hello,

  I have played around and fixed much of the issues. One frustrating one remains and I appreciate your help. 

Somehow one time I got the volume to work by having hdmi enabled in retropie setup. However I now can not. Please let me know what the various audio setting need to be. I am running hdmi into my tv. 

Is it possible to run wii or ps2/3 on this system?

Thank you for your help.

  No rom sound and no rom preview
Posted by: Azzizza - 04-03-2020, 01:23 AM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.3 - go to www.retrorangepi.org/forum - Replies (1)

Hello all, I figured out getting the roms on the pi but the games on multiple systems have no audio. I have the startup music ok. 

I assume that the unzipped rom files are the correct ones to import to the pi

Also there are no preview photos/artwork. 

Finally I was told that when roms are in the usb drive folders that the missing systems would show on the main menu but snes and N64 are not showing up even after importing the usb drive roms to the internal sd card. 

Thank you for your help.

  Favorites not saving
Posted by: thx1200 - 03-30-2020, 05:51 AM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.3 - go to www.retrorangepi.org/forum - No Replies

RetroStone 2, RetrOrangePi 4.3

My favorites and recents are not saving.

Favorites/recents are turned on, save metadata on exit is on in other settings.  gamelist.xml files are parsing (can see metadata and scraped graphics).  Permissions are RW for U/G for all gamelist.xml files. 

Tried exiting and restarting ES from menu, shutting system down via ES menu, shut down via "safe shutdown" button on the device.  

Favorites don't save in any scenario.  There are no relevant errors in es_log.txt that I can see.

I'm stumped.  Any ideas?


Doing a bit more investigating, it seems gamelist.xml gets updated for amiga and atarilynx, but not c64 or beyond. No errors in es_log, but also no indication it logged the shutdown. Does it terminate if it's taking a long time? I have a lot of ROMs and they are all scraped so the gamelist.xml files are pretty big (few mb each).

  OrangePi PC Plus - Setup Install on EMMC roms on SD
Posted by: yolkfolk - 03-27-2020, 08:50 AM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.3 - go to www.retrorangepi.org/forum - Replies (7)

This community is fantastic so I thought I would give back to it, as I have had issues with the OrangePi PC Plus setup.


Here is how to get it working out of the box. Hope this helps.

Download -

http://www.retrorangepi.org/RetrOrangePi...top.img.7z

Extract the IMG file.

Download SD Memory Card Formater -
https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter/

Download Win32DiskImager -
https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

Connect your PI to your network using ethernet cable.
Insert your SD card into your PC and format using SD Memory Card Formatter on default settings.

Open Win32diskImager and select the extracted IMG file and WRITE.

Once this is done, insert into your OrangePi PC Plus and turn on.

It will go through its setup process and eventually you will be in the EmulationStation controller configuration screen.

Setup a controller and press start and Exit EmulationStation so the screen is back at the terminal.

On your Laptop download PuTTY -
https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgta...atest.html

Run PuTTY and when asked type in the IP address shown on your Pi's terminal screen.
Once connected it will ask for USERNAME and PASSWORD
both are - pi

Copy this code below, this will allow you to run AMIGA (amiberry)

sudo cp -av /usr/local/lib/libSDL2* /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/

A few lines of code will appear and then once finished we are going to install your RetrOrangePi image to emmc.

Type in

sudo armbian-config

The armbian config screen will appear, goto SYSTEM, INSTALL, boot from eMMC - system on eMMC, then is asked to select which format, leave as default, then enter.
It will display an estimated time to finish this process, make yourself a cup of tea.

Once finished, it will ask to power off. Press enter.
When the Pi has rebooted, again quit emulation station. Reload PuTTY and log back in.

Once in terminal again on computer, type

---------------------------------------------

sudo parted /dev/mmcblk0
mklabel msdos
mkpart primary fat32 1MiB 100%
set 1 boot on
quit

sudo mkfs.vfat /dev/mmcblk0p1

-------------------------------------------

Now your SD card is ready, now we need to mount it.

Download WinSCP - 
https://winscp.net/eng/download.php

Open it and connect using the same IP address for your Pi

Username and password is again - pi

Navigate to this directory

/opt/retropie/configs/all

Open - autostart.sh

You will see a text file appear.

Under the line 'done' make a new line and copy this,

sudo mount -o rw,users,umask=000 /dev/mmcblk0p1 /home/pi/RetroPie

Click the save icon at the top and quit WinSCP

Your card is now mounted for roms.

Reboot Pi  - It will say there is no roms and the only option is to QUIT, do that so you are back in terminal.
Reconnect WinSCP to it.

Navigate to this directory

/home/pi/RetroPie


You will see it is empty

Download -
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hpcDVI..._OeVM4ioSM

extract this and copy contents to the /home/pi/RetroPie directory.

Thats it.

The roms and systems you can add but thats all I have done and its working 100%.... so far Smile

Hopefully this helps everyone.

Hello, I installed 4.3 on my retrosys purchased Orangepi (v 1.3?)and at the welcome screen it does not recognize either the wired or usb wireless controllers. Holding the buttons does not do anything. If not 4.3 then what software does it need? Thank you for your help.

  Amiberry issue
Posted by: yolkfolk - 03-19-2020, 07:37 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.3 - go to www.retrorangepi.org/forum - Replies (2)

I have installed a fresh 4.3 image from your website for my OrangePi PC plus and a few days ago found a fix so that it ran.
I had since had to redo my Orangepi and I cannot find the fix anymore.

Does anybody know, or had issues with it on their orangepi pc plus or can help me???

something to do with linking dependances..
it was a terminal command of a few lines and once i ran it, amiberry worked, without any file uploads etc...

Many thanks in advance..

  Button on the side pins orange lite
Posted by: cyborg - 03-19-2020, 04:19 PM - Forum: Hardware - No Replies

Hello everyone, I ask you if it is possible through the side pins, to act on the physical button that I have behind my ORANGE PI LITE, which I use to turn off the terminal.
I would like to mount it in a wooden wardrobe that I made and I would like to bring a button to turn it off in a smoother place.
Thanks a lot, Orazio.

  Hide the RETROPIE menu
Posted by: cyborg - 03-19-2020, 04:05 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.3 - go to www.retrorangepi.org/forum - Replies (4)

Ciao ragazzi, volevo chiedervi se con questa nuova versione è possibile nascondere il menu RETROPIE.
Ho questo bisogno con la mia arancia lite, perché anche la mia piccola figlia la usa per giocarci, e talvolta fa danni entrando in quel menu.
Per ovviare a questo problema, ho nascosto il menu "RETROPIE" nella home di Emulationstation, rinominando la cartella "RETROPIEMENU" che si trova in:

Home -> PI -> RetroPie.

Ok, tutto funziona, il menu "RETROPIE" in Emulationstation è scomparso, ma con esso anche la musica di sottofondo e lo screensaver non funzionano più.

Ne ho parlato anche qualche tempo fa in questa discussione nella sezione 4.2 (http://orangepi.club/showthread.php?tid=3189), che uso ancora.

Grazie mille, Orazio.
