I'm running recalbox on a pi 4 for the first time off a premade image file.
The purchase/sale/distribution of the already assembled Recalbox system is illegal, as it goes against the license to use Recalbox, ROMs and BIOS. Apart from the fact that the system is distributed for free by the Recalbox team, and whoever sells it unfairly profits.
Therefore, the forum does not support this type of image, if you want support as it is, you will need to contact whoever created this image.
In addition, the forum does not support outdated versions, as many errors are errors that have already been fixed over time.
I think I was just mistaken and the emulator core is MAME 0.230, however it always just shows Mame 2003 Plus as the default core when you go to edit a games information. I'm not sure if this is intentional but that is what confused me. When I actually launch a game and hit tab and go to About Mame it shows version 0.230.
What amount should I overclock the pi3 for good performance?
That depends a lot on the game. Some games, not even overclocked the RPi3 will run at full speed. You need to test.
Also what temps would overclocking it give?
Sorry, but I don't have this information.
Overclocking is a useful and valid feature, very common among users, but I can't guarantee it won't affect your Rpi. Overclocking has a risk, so the user has to be aware of the risk and do it on their own, always remembering to have a fan to ensure that the RPi will not overheat.
removing the n64.config="dummy" from recalbox.conf (can be skipped when nothing was done before)
readding input.xml (can be skipped when nothing was done before)
configure n64 controller in recalbox (a button in menu is b button on controller, b button in menu is a button on controller, all other buttons as expected, skip hotkey)
setting /recalbox/share/roms/n64/.retroarch.cfg to
input_autodetect_enable = true
input_menu_toggle_gamepad_combo = 7
enter game long hit start button (2 seconds) to enter retroarch quick menu
go to settings -> input -> Port 1 Controls
hit save controller profile
this will save the controller profile for future starts.
exiting, saving etc. will work when long pressing start to enter retroarch menu.
I hopes this does help somebody with n64 usb controller, recalbox 7.1.1, rpi 4 raspberry 4
I have a retro-bit Sega bluetooth controller and it took me a while to figure out how to pair and configure it correctly. I'm still having an issue with handoff from Emulation Station to Retroarch but it's playable.
Anyway, I pair the controller using home+X. Then configure the buttons as follows in emulationstation:
Controller == Emulation station
B = A
A = B
Y = X
X = Y
Z = LB (ensure this configures as Axis 2+ not 2-)
C = RB (ensure this configures as Axis5+ not 5-)
LB = L2
RB = R2
Start = Start
Select = Select
Home = hotkey
This configuration in emulationstation matches the normal buttons for StreetFighter2 on sega without any customizing the controller config in the emulator. To ensure Z and C configure as Axis 2+ and 5+ i have to hold them longer than usual or they detect as 2- and 5-. Sometimes have to redo C and Z multiple times to get it to detect as +.
edit: this button config works but the problem I have is that after emulationstation goes black to enter the emulator, nothing happens until I turn off the controller (by holding the home button) and then turning it back on (by holding the home button). Then the game will play fine.
so i hadn't used my recalbox pi setup since 2018 and it was a version of recalbox from 2016/17.. so i had just reloaded it with recalbox 7.0 yesterday.. so i found it uses mame 2013 plus and a newer version of retroarch from what i was used to.. also i couldn't get the normal mame 2013 mame menu to pop up using keyboard tab key.. this link below explains what settings to set in retroarch that's in recalbox 7.0 so that you can just use the keyboard for mame menu 🙂
Il y avait autrefois un tableau Excel dans le wiki " l'arcade facile " qui renseignait sur la compatibilité des roms du fullset Mame 0.78 vu que certaines ne sont pas fonctionnelles. Visiblement le lien vers ce tableau n'existe plus.. y'en a t'il un autre ? Car c'était vraiment pratique...
Thanks for the link but it looks like the files need to be uncompressed first. The batch file will help as far as automating the process once everything is uncompressed. I think I’ll transfer everything to my 2tb nvme drive first to make this going even faster.
@acris Yes I appreciate it is highlighted but it is an easy mistake to make and one that can have unexpected results. It turns out that for me that the last 4 files I'd added were the problem. I didn't even notice their sample rate. Easy mistake like I say but worth letting others know.
