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



  • @ced-le-pingouin
    Have you tried to reboot recalbox after forgetting bluetooth controllers? Remember I had to do this to pair one controller successfully.



  • Bonjour, je suis en test sur cette nouvelle version et je n'arrive pas à faire reconnaitre mon NAS avec celle-ci. En effet je possède 2 RECALBOX et j'ai upgradé (avec nouvelle installation) mon PI3 (l'autre est un PI2) et avec les mêmes paramètres pour le NAS (copier/coller) que mon PI2 en v18.07.13 il reste en local. Avez-vous une idée?
    Hello, i test this new revision and no roms with my NAS. Indeed i have 2 PI (2 and 3) and on my PI3 with this revision and the same network parameters (copy/paste) than my PI2 no roms on network (only view local roms). Do you have an idea?



  • Hey,

    I'm using the Christmas Beta on an Raspi 3B+ with a 32GB SD - no external storage devices.

    • My 8bitdo SF30 Pro Controller works without any problems on internal BT.
    • The shutdown script (Retroflag case) works but savegames are not written to SD, when switching off while still ingame (not sure if that's a script or recalbox problem)
    • Wifi takes a while to find and connect the AP, the first time but works well, afterwards.
    • Settings are not saved after exiting any emulator, I have to Hotkey+B every time I start a game. Even if I save the config in the menu, screen ratio will revert to "custom" after exiting the emulator.
    • N64 emulation is a bit laggy, sometimes, even when running on 1500MHz (using finned heatsinks on CPU and LAN, a copper heatspreader on ram and a 30mm fan in the case, so it shouldn't be a temp problem) - That's high-level moaning, however.

    If you need additional information, just ask.



  • @acris
    J'ai trouvé pourquoi. https://github.com/irtimmer/moonlight-embedded/issues/705
    Par contre je n'ai pas trouvé de listing avec les compatibilité moonligth / Version GFE
    J'ai donc testé la 3.15 et c'est fonctionnel. "Youpi"
    Je continu de tester...



  • Pi3+ everything is fine including Kodi (only one add one installed at the moment)

    The only problem is with NeoGeo. Several roms of 0.2.97.44 romset are not working. I do not know if is a problem of the neogeo.zip bios or the roms (roms of 0.2.97.43 romset didn't work anymore in beta). Every time crashes the system and had to disconnect from power otulet. Only one time after rebooted I received a message of ext4 error, then restarted and system started fine again. It happened only once.

    I noticed too that when one rom doesn't run, for example in FBA, I can not start another for example in Game Gear or Game Boy. After rebooting, I can run Game Gear or Game boy again.

    Thanks for answering.

    In FBA libretro with last stable version I had all installed roms working. With beta more than half did't work anymore. I had a veryfied 0.2.97.43 romset.

    Same situation with NeoGeo folder.

    With beta none of the 0.2.97.43 NeoGeo roms work anymore (with last stable all worked 100%)



  • I installed Christmas.beta version of recalbox x86 and x64 18.12.24 a week ago. I contacted and updated from the Ethernet but i did not proceed after the boot screen



  • @lhari84 Thanks for your answer.

    Yes I did reboot, multiple times. I actually tried several things. I even tried different available firmwares for the N30 gamepad, even older ones, but no luck...

    ...Until I tried to pair the gamepad "the hard way", i.e. manually, in the Linux console during an SSH session.

    Then it worked. For those interested, the process is described here : https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Connect-bluetooth-controller-manually-(EN)

    simple-agent did not work (method 1), but bluetoothctl did (method 2).

    I have no idea why it refuses to pair in the GUI. I tried so many times, and it never worked.



  • Now that my gamepad problems are sorted out, I can report a bit more on Recalbox usage.

    Everything worked fine in the few included games (homebrews ?) I tested. The gamepad also works in Kodi, as does my TV remote through HDMI-CEC.

    The only crashes I witnessed were in Kodi, and they were rare. I play movies from the network (via smb). They are stored on a NAS, with both the NAS and the Pi 3B+ connected to my router via ethernet. All the movies play fine, even those in 1080p, despite being read from the network. On one or two occasions, Kodi crashed and returned to EmulationStation. It seemed to happen exclusively when I tried to load a movie while another was already playing, as if Kodi/the Pi/the network (not sure which one of those) struggled. So now I prefer stopping the currently playing movie before trying to load another one.

    Hope it helps.

    Latest beta is not made for updating, only fresh installation possible.

    Try adding ",vers=1.0" end of line, like this:

    sharedevice=NETWORK
    sharenetwork_smb1=ROMS@192.168.100.x:Recalbox/roms:username=xxxx,password=xxxxx,vers=1.0

    @ottomanhlc this is a known issue. Please be patient or use the stable version.



  • hello all,

    my configuration :

    desktop pc x64 / core i3 / gtx 670
    recalbox christmas beta version

    i have a black screen when i try to load atari 5200 games (for all games)
    i have to return to the menu with the hotkey+start fonction

    i have put the bios file in the share/bios directory
    It works fine with atari 800



  • @toniosj Hello! Thanks for your tip but it doesn't work for me. On boot the recalbox stay on the black screen with the version on bottom. On my NAS SYNOLOGY i can see that i have my user connect but nothing on my RECALBOX. I anderstand that this parameter fixe the version of SMB? is it the way of my problem? I add the band SMB1 and SMB2 parameter for my shares on my NAS and remove the "vers=1.0" from the command line but the RECALBOX boot in local setting. Another idea?



  • I just tried to do with nfs setting and it's the same. Does anyone use the NAS rom share with this version?



  • Bonjour,

    Merci pour cette beta Christmas Edition qui a le mérite de démarrer sur mon Pi 3b+ et de fonctionnner... en gros.

    J'utilise un double joystick "X-Arcade" pour Mame, et ce dernier ne fonctionne pas bien avec la version beta en mode natif. Certaines des boutons sont reconnus, d'autres non (et c'est d'ailleurs très peu intuitif de devoir utiliser un bouton pour entrer dans la liste de jeu et un autre pour lancer le jeu).
    Le joystick fonctionne dans l'interface, mais pas les bons boutons, et ne fonctionne plus sous Mame.

    En mode "émulation joystick Xbox360" ça passe pour un certain nombre de boutons, mais certaines des touches ne semblent pas émulées.

    Pour info, j'ai essayé sous Batocera, ça passe nickel (mais je préférerais pouvoir l'utiliser sur Recalbox qui a une interface plus agréable)....



  • Hello !
    With the new core mame 2003 plus, what is the button to access service mode ?
    On mame 2003 it's F2, but on 2003 plus F2 do Nothing.
