  QJoypad configuration
Posted by: alexkidd - 11-01-2017, 02:22 PM - Forum: HOWTOS - Replies (1)

Kodi, most ports and some standalone emulators like Amiga UAE4ARM will require a keyboard/mouse to play.

Our alternative, since ROPi v3 release is the QJOYPAD application. 
ROPi already includes default mapping for compatible content . They might not match exactly the same  buttons you have on your controller. So, in order to update it, open the Desktop, run Applications - Games - QJoypad

you will find something like this:


Select one of the available layouts and, with the help of a keyboard and mouse, remap as you wish and update it.

  Retro Achievements
Posted by: alexkidd - 11-01-2017, 02:21 PM - Forum: HOWTOS - No Replies

One of Retroarch's nicest features is the support to Retroachievements, something like the Trophies feature on the Playstation 3 and 4.

From their page: "RetroAchievements.org is a community who collaborate and compete to earn custom-made achievements in classic games through emulation. Achievements are made by and for the community. We provide various custom-built emulators for you to use which will detect when you have completed various challenges. Once logged in, the emulators will post the achievements you've completed back to the site, so you can check and compare your progress to your friends."

This is how it looks :Big Grin

So, if you want to have it on your RetrOrangePi image:

1. Head to http://retroachievements.org/createaccount.php and register yourself.

2. Launch a compatible game/system, press Select + X (to open Retroarch Menu) then select achievements from the settings tab:

3. Enter your credentials as you've just signed up:

4. Save Current Configuration, from Retroarch main configuration menu:

5. If you dont want any of this anymore, go back to the achievements TAB, disable it then repeat number 4. Voilá!

In this retropie wiki page, you can see the compatible systems as well as some more detailed instructions: https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Set...hievements

  RetrOrange Pi 4.0 (update from 3.0.1)
Posted by: alexkidd - 11-01-2017, 02:20 PM - Forum: README FIRST! - Replies (9)

Hello guys,
As expected by the vast majority of users, ROPi 3.0.1 to 4.0 update will work by script, without the need of reflashing your sdcard all over again. We hope this version to be more user-friendly and easily upgradable.
Full images will take a little more time to be available, as Harryzimm has been VERY busy with real life lately. We hope to read your feedback on our forums soon, so we can fix any bug before flashing the final images.
The automated script will backup your configs, keeping your roms and metadata intact, so you should not be worried (too much). If your data is very unique, it’s wiser to backup Big Grin
Update instructions :

  1. Quit to terminal (from EmulationStation start menu or simply by pressing F4).
  2. Download the updater: wget http://www.retrorangepi.org/ropi4.sh
  3. Give it execute permission: sudo chmod +x ropi4.sh
  4. Run it: sudo -u pi ./ropi4.sh
  1. Make sure you have 1GB of free space, before running the update. Script will remove update files after completion , so don’t worry.
  2. It’s possible to update from SSH. Please log with user pi , not root (ever)
If all goes well, you should get a confirmation at the end asking you to reboot your board.

  OPi Plus WiFi & X360 JoyPad
Posted by: niarbagem - 10-31-2017, 10:12 AM - Forum: Hardware compatibility - No Replies

Good day!

WiFi (RTL8189ETV) on my Orange Pi Plus don't work. When i've tried add Wifi connection through gui connection manager adapter havn't seen.
Haven't seen it on dmesg yet. Does it supported "from box" or manual installation only?

I have Logitech cordless RumlbePad 2 and XBOX 360 pad with chinese receiver, both works well and configured without problem, but when i'd tried to play with 2 players SNES DKC 1 i've seen title "XBOX pad configured to port #3" and don't work in game. But it works in DKC2. 

How i can configure it to port #2?

  OrangePi 2G IoT Raspian booting problems
Posted by: atmax - 10-28-2017, 04:54 PM - Forum: DIY Practical Questions - No Replies

Hey OrangePi Club

I have downloaded Raspbian Server (http://www.orangepi.org/download ... 367e8175b1c992.html) and flashed it on a Class 10 Micro SD-HC with 8GB. I connects itself to a hotspot where the SSID and the PSK are both 'orangepi'. A few seconds after the connection to the hotspot is established I am able to ping my OrangePi (I assume SSH could also work but within that timewindow i wasn't yet able to connect). But then someting crashes and the OrangePi doesn't respond at all. 

And now I don't really know what to do Sad  I would love to give you guys the serial debug output, but that doesnt't work. I am using a CH340G USB to TTL adapter with a BAUD Rate of both 511200 and 921600. Tried it with Putty and kermit, but there is just no output. But as an alternative I can offer you a dump from all the files from /var/log/messages, you can get them from here: https://mega.nz/#!2c8nzaoB!8X8sO6GTuoH-i...1sVhToiALY . Does anyone have an idea how I could solve this problem?? Please let me know

Rainbow Retro-bit ATARI usb adapter support
Posted by: canadien - 10-19-2017, 04:46 PM - Forum: Support area - No Replies


Is it possible to support this adapter :
[Image: atari_to_usb01.jpg?t=1433489911]

Right now only right and down work. It doesn't register left or up.

I've read that the problem are the drivers that have not been updated, hence on the original RetroPie it need a kernel mod to be fully functional: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt...t&start=25

I also found those links that can be useful:

Thanks for the heads-up!
