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

  • Hello

    I have done a small test by deleting roms from an emulator (reproduce on any emulator) and when you delete the last one, you get a black screen. Is it a known bug?

    Test has been done one the last beta and a Pi3b+

  • @chris256 Desactive "vérifier les mises a jour". Il doit certainement te proposer une maj en 18.07.13

  • @slolo Same thing in the stable version, it is annoying since you need to hard restart your pi

  • I know it's an annoying question but I'm gonna ask it anyway.
    Do you guys think the stable update with the 3B+ support will come out before christmas?

    Would love to give my girlfriend a Recalbox Pi 3B+ as present.
    Should I have my hopes in a stable version before the holidays or should I try to configure the beta as good as it gets?

    Keep up the great work. Looking forward to the new version. Cheers.

  • Tester

    No date was given.
    You can for sure provide your girlfriend a 3b+ with beta version, it will works until new release will be available

  • Bonjour,

    Test de la beta donc sur B+.

    Plusieurs problèmes rencontrés :

    -Ma manette 8bitdo SF30 pro à énormément de mal à se connecter et à rester connectée. Elle chope le signal puis le perd , je dois éteindre et rallumer plusieurs fois pour que sa la reprenne et rebelote. En plus de gros lags sur les commandes en jeux voir ne fonctionne plus du tout.

    -Le menu du wifi freeze une fois les informations rentrées. Je dois activer le wifi, choisir le réseau, couper le wifi, rentrer le mdp puis fermer le menu. Re-ouvrir le menu et activer le wifi, la c'est passé sans freeze.

    -Crash écran noir à chaques tentatives de scrap d'un jeux.

    Voila voila.

  • @is_greqt La manette 8BitDo SF30 marche bien si elle est bien appairée et bien utilisée. Je l'utilise sur mon RPi3b+ avec la beta version et elle marche niquel. Le seul souci c'est le bouton select qui, en cours de jeu sur n'importe quel émulateur de l'ES, change la configuration graphique (le mode s'affiche en jaune au bas de l'écran). Pas très pratique en MAME, NeoGeo, Libretro etc... quand tu mets tes crédits lol Cela dit, en en mettant suffisamment (5, 6 ou 7), tu retombes sur le mode par défaut et cela fonctionne parfaitement ;)

    Pour le Wi-Fi, il marche aussi très bien. Je me rappelle avoir un peu galéré au début et j'ai eu besoin de changer le mode de ma clé de cryptage, mais une fois ceci fait, cela fonctionne très bien. J'avais suivi des tutos sur ce site qui expliquait les pré-requis du fonctionnement du Wi-Fi.

    Pour le scrapping, je n'ai jamais rencontré ton souci et ne sais pas à quoi il est du.

    Bon courage !

  • @Scavy
    J'ai tenter d'appairé maintes fois mais non ya pas moyen. La manette fonctionne très bien sur retropie cela dis. Oui le wifi fonctionne bien une fois config, je n'y touche plus.

    Le scrapping pas moyen, vraiment.

    Je retente se soir pour voir.

  • J'ai le meme probleme pour le scrapping sur la dernière BETA , sur celle juste avant je n'avais pas de soucis.

    Sans discréditer le super travail des développeurs, il y a des alternatives au scrapping de l'ES. Elles sont pas mal du tout et comprennent tout un tas de fonctionnalités extra.

  • @scavy j'ai le même soucis du coup si je fais hotkey + b j'arrive à rentrer dans le menu retro arch mais après ça bug.

  • @olivierdroid92 Thanks for getting back.
    I have the beta running quite smoothly for some weeks now.
    Only major issue right now: is there are temporary fix for the scraping problem? Would be nice to have box art for the games. But scraper does not work. A known issue in the forum and will surely be resolved in the stable version. But for now?

  • @Scavy J'ai essayer pendant plus d'1h de connecter ma FC30 pro hier. J'ai tout reset, essayer par les commandes terminal ect. Plus moyen de l'apparairer. Je me tate a reflasher la sd et a repartir a zero pour voir.

  • @is_greqt For me following workflow helped. It was in stable, but I'm sure it works for beta too.

    1. Delete the file where all bluetooth devices are stored on network share:
      \share\config\bluetooth\bluetooth.tar (don't know if path is 100% correct, but you'll find it!)
    2. Disconnect Pi from power supply. I know it's rude, but I found no other way. If you soft reboot, file deleted tar-file will recovered autmatically.
    3. Pair your 8Bitdo controller

    Unfortunately I had to send back my controller to seller though, because after some reboots of Recalbox controller suddenly didn't want to connect anymore and I had to do the same process again and again. - Really annoying.
    As it happend only with SF30 Pro I guess controller itself had failure. But anyway, mentioned workflow above is the only way for me to pair a 8bitdo controller again, which has lost its pairing for some reason. "Forget controllers" option in EmulationStation isn't enough.
    By the way my 8bitdo N30 Pro works nicely :)
    Hope this helps!

  • I found a workaround for the scraper problem. For the beta for now, till the stable release comes out.
    If you are interested hit me up.

  • @zyphos Yes please let us know !

  • EDIT: please forget about this. My search skills are terrible: I tried finding info before but couldn't see OyyoDams message above before reading the whole thread backwards. Please accept my apologies for the noise.

    I wanted to test the latest beta. I installed the latest stable via PINN (a NOOBS fork), changed the update source to the first URL in the guide, rebooted, updated when notified an update was available, rebooted again, changed the update source to the second URL, rebooted again. I was notified once more of an update being available, but when I try to launch the update, I get an error with no other indication of what went wrong.

    Looking in preuprage.log, I can see recalbox can't get headers for boot.tar.xz, and indeed, whatever URL I try in the path of https://review-507-bump-b-0jn0c0-archive-review-prod.recalbox.com/v1/upgrade/rpi3/boot.tar.xz I do get a 404. Is there a new URL that should be used instead ?

    Thanks a bunch.


  • @Zyphos

    Yes pls, i want gift a ready Recalbox to my brother on christmas.

  • Just a quick positive feedback: adding an own script in /share/system/custom.sh works flawlessly.

  • There seems to be some people who want the beta ready as a christmas gift.
    So here is what I did to get everything scraped nice and shiny:

    By the way I used the latest Beta Image on a Pi 3B + (Most N64 seems to run quite good-ish)


    • Get access to your recalbox via a FTP Tool (I used Cyberduck on a Mac) https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/acces-via-cyberduck-(FR) (French but you get the clue)

    • Search for the Recalbox/Share/Roms folder and go to your system of choice.

    • if not already there copy your roms to the folder

    • restart your recalbox (or in this case only the emulationstation)

    • now scrape your system as usual (start > scraper > scrape now….) maybe only select one system at a time to keep track.

    • go back to your FTP, maybe reload. You will see there is now a folder (if it wansnt there already) called downloaded_images with all the images for the games in it.

    • The problem is the gamelist.xml is missing which tells the system where to find the images and the other game info. Or it might be there and doesnt include the right data.

    What you have to do now is to generate this xml file on your PC or Mac

    • Credit to https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Scrape-your-games-with-your-PC-(EN)
      But i did some things a bit different. Keep in mind I did this on a Mac. For PC this might be a bit different.

    • Download the Binary of sselph scraper https://github.com/sselph/scraper/releases

    • Make a Folder on your Desktop (name is not important but I call it ’dude’ for the hack of it) put the same roms in there as you put on the recalbox

    • Copy the ‘scraper’ unix file from the sselph download in the same ’dude’ folder (I think its an .exe on PC)

    • open Terminal type in ’cd’ and then a space and then you drag the ’dude’ folder also in the terminal. Now there should be ’cd the/exact/path/tothefolder/dude - press enter

    • now you are in the folder but you need the path again so drag the ’dude’ folder path again in the terminal followed by (without a space)

    /scraper -image_path="./downloaded_images/" -img_format=png -console_src=„gdb“

    • press enter and wait.

    • What you should get is again a folder with nice boxart in it and boy oh boy a nice little gamelist.xml file

    • Now ignore the images and just copy the xml file via FTP into the system Folder you are working on, right there between all the roms. (not in the image Folder)

    • Restart Recalbox

    now you should have all the Infos and the pretty little Boxart in it.

    Additional what you can do if you dont like the recalbox tryptich style of Images with Screenshot-Box-Logo you can experiment with downloading other Boxart with the sselph on your computer and replace the pngs in the downloaded_image folder. I used just screenshots I downloaded as follows. Replace the code line above with this

    /scraper -image_path="./downloaded_images/" -img_format=png -console_src="ss" -max_width 800 -console_img="s"

    Other codes you can use to personalize your scraping are listed here:
    Under Command Line Flags

    Hope that helps
    Marry Christmas
