Problem with moonlight

  • @jor2404 am i rught to believe you don't have only one GFE PC ?

  • @jor2404 Today I was also trying to solve the blackscreen problem. I did all steps described in this forum but without success. I use it for running Steam and after selecting Moonlight the Steam was executed on my PC automatically but at my Raspberry there was only black screen again.
    Then I started following. I downloaded and installed latest fresh Recalbox image and did the Moonlight pairing with my computer. Everything was working at first try and games were running. But I do not wanted to configure whole Recalbox and Kodi again for the new SD card. So I made a backup of all files in /share/system/configs/recalbox/moonlight. Then I put back my old SD card deleted all files in share/system/configs/recalbox/moonlight and copied files from working card backup. After this step my old SD card started working and Moonlight is running games correctly.
    One hint: When I tried to delete the files from card if was not possible using the shared folder. It was necessary to stop the emulation station and login as root directly at RPi computer.

  • i always stuck on the pair thing...

    the last message i got is

    "Searching for server..."

    and then nothing happens and i do all the things in this thread above .. so i think dont know what to do

  • @gimpi it means it can't find a GFE host in your network

  • @substring yeah but What Can i do GFE is running and the stream Option is enabled

    I tried to put the IP into the moonlight config and Not i have only one PC running with gfe

    I tried with ethernet and WiFi always stuck on this point did i miss something?

  • @gimpi are your pi and GFE PC on the same subnetwork ? have you tried moonlight on your phone and see if it works ? Have you ever successfully streamed your games ? Is your GPU compatible with streaming ?

  • @substring hmmm how i Can See if There is in the same sub Network i Think so because i have only one Network here

    Dont try it with my Phone i will try this later

    Yes my gpu is Ready to stream gtx970

    I Just streamed via steam from my PC to my Windows Tablet

  • @gimpi can you reach recalbox through network shares ? can you ping your PC from Recalbox ?

  • @substring if i put the IP from recalbox into my Chrome Browser have access to All the Things i need

    I dont See the Box in the Windows Explorer / Network view where i Can See the Fritz Box

    The Ping Thing is Just Ping IP into the Controll Pannel (f4)? I will try

  • @gimpi just SSH to it otherwise

  • @substring ok if i try to stream via Smartphone and i add the IP from my PC they said unable to connect make Sure the Requiem Ports Are allowed through Firewall

  • @gimpi so that's a GFE configuration problem. Have you logged in an account in GFE ?

  • @substring yes im logged in an gfe Account

  • @gimpi said in Problem with moonlight:

    @substring yes im logged in an gfe Account

    OK i Think im on the good way if i deaktivate the Windows Firewall i have stream access with my Smartphone Cant try it with the Pi now so i have to allow GFE to communicate through the firewall

  • @gimpi looks promising

  • @substring

    ok with firewall off it works to pair and i can stream steam ... but since the update 18.03.16 my controller doesnt work .. my wireless Keyboard works well in the Straming menu but the Bluetooth and even the USB Gamepad would not work

  • @gimpi i spent some time on the moonlight code ... its way of identifying pads is self made instead of using SDL2 helpers. The drawback is that if SDL2 changes its algorithm, we're fucked once again.

    I'll see what I can do in the future.

    Meanwhile there is a hack i've explained here

  • Hi!
    I've got a problem with Moonlight that I can't understand.
    I must say that I have a low level of computering, so maybe I did something wrong. Before anything, also sorry for my english.

    First of all, I downloaded Geforce Experience in 3.11 version so Recalbox would be able to connect to it and I added some games.
    I connected to Recalbox through WinSCP with SCP protocol. I did what the GitHub says typing:
    /recalbox/scripts/moonlight/Moonlight.sh find
    After that, I typed:
    /recalbox/scripts/moonlight/Moonlight.sh pair
    Once I did this, something unexpected happened. A little window of Nvidia Shield oppened asking for a ping so I could connect. I looked into the GitHub and I wondered if the ping should have appeared after what I typed. At least that was what GitHub seemed to be saying. As I had no ping to type, I pushed the "Connect" button anyway and, to my surprise, the ping appeared after that in the WinSCP and a message saying that my device was already paired.
    Then, I typed this:
    /recalbox/scripts/moonlight/Moonlight.sh init
    It said YOLO MODE, you know, but then appeared the text:
    Adding and scraping . . .
    And nothing more... Everything stopped here. I reseted the Raspberry, I repeated this process, I tried to connect through the new Moonlight option I had in Emulestation... But nothing. No game added, no scraping, no connection possible.

    I tried Moonlight in my phone just to check and everything worked, but not in Recalbox.

    What could I be doing wrong?

    Thank you very much!

  • @cheemix run the script with the clean parameter, and start again. You're supposed to type the pincode on your GFE host to allow pairing. If this step failed, you cab't go on

  • @substring Sorry, what do you mean by "clean parameter"?
    This is what happens to me. This appears at the same time:
    If I do nothing, awindow appears saying that WinSCP is going to close. I can ask it not to do so, but then nothing happens neither.
    If i push "Connect", it acts like everything is OK but the ping appears later.
    If I push "Cancel", the ping appears, but the NVidia window closes, so I have nowhere to put the ping...
