Recalbox 7.0

[V3.3.0b4] Troubleshooting of a beginner (controller, overclocking)



  • Hey guys, yesterday I installed Recalbox on mi Raspberry Pi 2 (3.3.0 Beta 4). So far so good. Here is some stuff I noticed and figured out. Maybe I am not the only one having problems at the beginning and this thread can help out. Overclocking Turns out, that overclocking the Pi2 to 1050MHz is not stable for everyone. I had numerous freezes/crashes with 1050MHz overclocking enabled in the settings. 1000MHz work just fine so far. Controller My controllers are Thrustmaster T Mini Wireless & Xiaomi Bluetooth Controller The Thrustmaster controller works just fine except in the N64 emulator. To get it to work you need to add this controller to the  InputAutoCfg.ini file (its in /usr/share/mupen64plus). This entry works for me: [Thrustmaster T Mini Wireless] plugged = True plugin = 2 mouse = False AnalogDeadzone = 4096,4096 AnalogPeak = 32768,32768 DPad R = hat(0 Right) DPad L = hat(0 Left) DPad D = hat(0 Down) DPad U = hat(0 Up) Start = button(9) Z Trig = button(7) -> I put the Z Trig on R2; the select button is button 8 B Button = button(0) -> the y button on the snes controller A Button = button(1) -> the b button on the snes controller C Button R = axis(3+) C Button L = axis(3-) C Button D = axis(2+) C Button U = axis(2-) R Trig = button(5) L Trig = button(4) Mempak switch = Rumblepak switch = X Axis = axis(0-,0+) Y Axis = axis(1-,1+) What I could't solve: The hotkey button (Button 12) ends mupen64 immediately. No chance to save or load a game. There is no way of configuring the hotkey button in mupen64 when I am not mistaken. Any idea on how to get the hotkey button to work in mupen64 with this controller? **Edit: **It is the same with the Xioami controller. The hotkey button quits the game immediately. So it does not seem to be a controller issue. The Xiaomi controller works fine except that Recalbox OS doesn't automatically reconnect the controller after reboot. You have to to the whole bluetooth pairing process from step one. There will be a solution soon according to digitalLumberjack. Kodi The resolution of Kodi needs to be set to 1920x1080p (or whatever your screen maximum resolution is). Otherwise the the resolution of Emulation Station will drop to the low default value of Kodi after you leave Kodi and return to Emulation Station. Will there be an update of Kodi? 15.2 is about to get released.

    It's a known bug (see compatibility list) that the Xiaomi Pad needs to be paired everytime after reboot. About N64, as Mupen is not a libreto core but a standalone emulator, there is no retroarch menu and the Hotkey is just configured to exit the emulator. You can not save states (yet).



  • Any way to fix this this annoying issue with the Xiaomi Controller? Works perfectly with any Android device. Will Mupen64 be a part of libretro in 4.0.0? I think Retropie managed to do this in one of their last releases.

    About the Xiaomi pad: not yet. About Mupen: There exists a libretro version for Mupen but, as far as I know, usually standalone emulators have better performance and that's the reason why the developers of recalbox decided to use it. N64 emulation on the Pi is experimental, so I don't think so.
