    @gkralicek2 it's not a noobs problem, it's a firmware + kernel problem. Recalbox img most probably can't boot for these reasons. And for noobs : we're not yet compatible as we need the new board's id

    Hello, do you have an approximate date a major update to have support for RPi 3 B +?

    @simba51 sorry no date will be given.



  • Thank you for your reply. I'll be happy then ...



  • No date? Then it can only be hours..... ;-)
    joking

    On pi ? What for ? They hardly support 64bits

    In my point of view it's not really necessary to store ROMs on an external USB drive.
    I've included whole "share" directory (containing ROMs, BIOS files, etc.) to my backup script. So if I have to reinstall Recalbox, I simply copy back needed files from my backup storage to new Recalbox installation.
    If my microSD card breaks of any reason, as the same can happen with external USB drive, I can also use this backup. (Good because I've spent days to optimize gamelists, ROMs, etc.)
    Adding/removing content using network share is also quite comfortable, at least by using LAN connector instead of WiFi. Same with editing gamelist metadata directly by using an editor - here the only annoying thing is having to stop/start emulationstation in shell each time.

    No it's not, especially for bigger games like PSX or Dos games



  • @voljega
    ~ 30 seconds for moving an average sized PBP-image of PSX game.
    ~ 50 seconds for an uncompressed CD ISO.
    That's not too bad... Maybe if your collection is >128 GB, but for mine I'm happy using LAN.



  • @lhari84 I do too. I only use lan to put roms on my recalbox. PSX games included. That's perfect :)



  • Damn. I just ordered a Pi 3B+ from PiHut with controllers and of course - it's not yet supported... Getting only the rainbow screen with the lightning symbol, I guess that's normal?

    Eagerly anticipating for an update. :|

    Even my RPi 3B+ has been waiting for 2 weeks! 😢😢



  • Let me state it clearly : its a matter of several weeks. Although it does work fine (but psp), we can't make a release yet as we can't manage updates yet. It will have to go through some.public testing along with a major system update (including kodi 17). So please don't be impatient ;)

    Ok substring, thanks for the clarity! Good job then! 👍



  • @substring just a question, for my curiosity if you can answer of course. What are the major improvements that you are planning for next Recalbox release? Give us a spoiler on that :)



  • @hex12 the next release (tomorrow) is only bugfixes. Then, nothing much emulation related for now, mostly technical crap. As for now i'm working on the tinkerboard, i guess it's 80% done



  • @substring newer emulator version are in plan? i am not telling about new platforms (systems) but new version of existing included emulators, like for PSP or Amiga or i don't know... And Thinkerboard will support same platform of Raspberry or also 3DO?



  • @hex12 regarding emulators update, mame2010 for sure, no idea for others. Probably rollback ppsspp as it gives many errors to people.

    The roadmap is not done, this all depends on our free time.
