Testers wanted: major system upgrade (Pi3b+, KODI 17 and much more ...)



  • Hello,

    I am testing recalbox distribution (507-bump-bui (fafba916) 28566561 rpi3 2018/08/23) on pi3+ with kintaro super ursus case & 8bitdo SFC30Pro which works pretty well for a upgraded reproduction of my beloved 26 years Snes.

    1. Rom Suppression
      I would like to mention for a potential improvement when you try to suppress a rom directly from the menu (through editing game information/suppress), it crash the recalbox. It would be helpful to find a way to simplify rom suppression through one button (with confirmation) as we do to mark favorites games. Today for each suppression you have to do several menu manipulations to suppress the rom and its time consuming when you try to clean a romset. Its just an idea.

    2. 8bitdo SFC30 Pro : Mapping is not saved
      Trying to remap the gamepad, mapping is not saved everytime you reinitiate the recalbox. hotkey is not working even if you use the 8bitdo button (bottom right) or you map it on select. Start+Select exit dosn't works as well For example in NES emulator (with SMB1), you can't open Retroarch menu to set the shaders or exit of the game. You have to reset the console.

    3. 8bitdo SFC30 Pro : Input lag
      As well i still have light input lag on SFC30Pro with internal bluetooth which is enough for RPG games but for Mario / SFII turbo millimeter gameplay its still not satisfying (i've ordered a BT dongle on the recalstore to try to fix that)

    I continue deepdiving on pi3+ test.

    thx for the work by the way!

    Regards

    1. Kintaro SuperUrsus Case Power/Reset/Fan Scripts
      And if there's any way to integrate the safe power/ reset / fan scripts to pilot super ursus case inside the next distribution, could be wonderful. (I can share them with you coming from mirefly thread on this forum /michael kirsch files).

    Thx

    Regarding input lag, you could try to use the Run-Ahead feature of RetroArch. But due to the lack of performance of the Raspberry Pi, you should overclock it a bit and deactivate Rewind-Function.

    First thing to do is desactivate wifi on your pi , you'll see a significant difference with your input lag

    I would suggest to use a dedicated bluetooth-dongle anyway.
    Because with my Pi3 even with disabled wifi i noticed a minimal delay.
    With a bluetooth-dongle the delay was gone. Also the range is way better.
    But this also depends on the bluetooth-dongle, because i once had a dongle, where the range was bad and it also felt like there was lag.

    @joinski In my experience I can't say if a BT dongle will help, but some says yes so you could give it a try if you have one.
    Anyway, with BT you'll always have latency, the only way to avoid it is to use wired controller.



  • @gaetan

    Under some circumstances bluetooth can have less input lag, then wired connection, see here:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/RocketLeague/comments/8wvf9u/controller_input_lag_comparison_more_info_in_the/

    But as already mentioned, it depends of the BT-Dongle, some are better, some ar worse.
    It also depends of the used Controller. Some Bluetooth-Controllers do have more and some have less input-lag.
    8bitdo Controllers for example (but there was a firmware-upgrade released, which reduced the input-lag a bit).



  • Hi everybody,

    I have this problems with the beta running on Rpi3 B+:

    • No sound on background music in menu (Pop-up appears while playing a song, in game sound and music is working...in HDMI)
    • Global speed is very slower when using the composite output: sound and video are very slow but "works", no weird things in the video or audio signal (@3fps it's not esay to say)
    • Wifi connection doesn't launch at start, have to manually shutdown and reboot wifi (not a big deal for me)

    Everything else works great in HDMI with a PS4 wired controller.

    --> If somebody has a plan to make the speed back with the composite output it would be great !



  • @mamouchka9 hdmi sound : it does work, but you can force it

    Sluggish on composite video : edit config.txt and remove the audio_pwm_mode (inmay have scrambled the words)



  • @mamouchka9 I also have the reboot for wifi issue on my pi 3+ for me it is an annoyance as I@m using a NESpi case and iot looks awful with the flap open to use the ethernet port



  • ALso as an update for anyone trying to get he xbox one pad to connect wirelessly: don't bother trying Microsoft deliberately (?) broke non official pairing in the last update stating it was a bug that it had happened in the first place!



  • Is it possible to force 5Ghz wifi on a 3+ with this beta ?



  • Used Rufus on windows to write image to SD card. Connected x-arcade tankstick and started raspberry Pi 3B+ and got booted out of games I would try to load. Re-mapped controller using controller settings > configure a controller and still has issues.

    Connected a pandora arcade controller and ran the 'configure a controller' and had no problems loading games. Link to device below
    (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06Y61WDG3/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

    I'm assuming this is an issue with the x-arcade tankstick but I figured I would bring it up. I have attached a link for the support file. If I need to do anything to test let me know.

    Raspberry Pi model: 3b+
    Recalbox version (build) : Beta Version
    Hardware (Micro SD, Power Supply, etc.): 32GB Samsung, CanaKit 2.5Amp Power Supply
    Controller(s): x-arcade tankstick (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000ST0184/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

  • @shinomen Well that didn't take long. I had configured only player one on my x-arcade stick. I got the great idea to go ahead and configure both player 1 and 2 and low and behold it's working! Sorry but thanks. :)



  • hello great job, I update to this version.
    I want to have custom GPIO.
    Can you send to me how to configure recalbox.conf ?

    Thanks

    @darksouljedi Here is the wiki, you may find your answer there ;)

  • I tries to update the beta version and it crashed horribly, then everytime I tried to launch recalbox I obtained a black screen with a few lines of error...

    I want to try and reinstall Recalbox again but I want to make a Multiboot system (NOOBS) the problem is that Network install it's not working... It says somthing like It can't find the file on the server...

    Could this issue be solved?

    PD: I'm using the latest NOOBS that incluided Recalbox.


  • Tester

    @Juakin
    The easiest way to try a BETA version is to make some run and trials from a fresh copye image. I do not think a dual boot will be a good option.



  • I understand that, but I would like to restablish the non beta version, but It doesn´t seems to download from NOOBS, it can't reach the server... It seems the file is unavailable :(



  • When is the stable version for pi 3b+ ready to download ??
