    I've noticed the following issues.

    When go to advanced setting, and change core MAME from DEFAUT to ADVANCEDMAME --> Crash. With "restart ES" it works but not possible to activate 'ADVANCED MAME".

    When I want to play with MAME2010 (release 0.139) I do not have any folder /recalbox/share/bios/mame2010/ so I've created one to copy CHEAT.ZIP. I only have /recalbox/share/bios/mame2003/ folder
    Can be a good idea to create this folder to help newcomer :)

    In Web Manager, concerning Bios validation.
    I do not have no information neither green nor red cross with SCPH1001.BIN
    MD5 are OK

    Merci d'avance

    @olivierdroid92 thanks for your report:
    A- Metadata are very buggy on the Christmas beta. Everything has been fixed for next betas/releases
    B- Easy improvement, validated :)
    C- Never seen that issue before. Did you try with another browser?

    @bkg2k I also had this C issue ((always had it), I think it's related to case of the filename

    For MAME2003-PLUS (0.78)
    Cheat.dat file to be uploaded in : libretro system dir/mame2003-plus/
    so it will be /recalbox/share/bios/mame2003-plus/
    Same question : can this folder be created from the image ?

  • @substring

    Pour ma part, sur odroid XU4:

    • probleme sur manette 8bitdo:
      la premiere synchronisation: Ok . Puis, après plusieurs redémarages, les manettes sont oubliés, et on ne peux plus les associer.
    • problème pour changer la durée du splashscreen (les intro ne sont pas lu en entier malgré les modifications dans le fichier S02splash).

    Bon courage a l'équipe

    I played 1944 game on different MAME LIBRETRO cores : MAME0.78(2003) - MAME2003PLUS - MAME2010
    Controls are not the same :(
    To be clear I have 3 full complete rom set.

    Any chance to remap controls on core MAME2003 PLUS and MAME2010 based on MAME2003.

    Controls configured for MAME2003 are the most usefull.

  • Staff

    @olivierdroid92 definitely not. That‘s something the core manages and for thousands of roms and different cores it is practically impossible to achieve.

  • Hello there!
    First of all, thank you for all that work, u are awesome.
    I just bought a a raspberry 3b+ and installed the beta on it. I found 2 issues:

    • Favorites are not "remembered" when you reboot. Always forgotten by recalbox when you restart, even if you don't choose the fast shutdown.
    • Moonlight seems to have a problem with the 3.16 version of Geforce. It's a known issue, that some programmers did solve by compiling again Moonlight with some code correction :lien vers github. But for those who are not familiar with coding, there is no available solution.
      Thank u for reading this.

  • Hello,

    I want to play with 4:3 ratio, because for me, the only one solution, I dont like 16:9 at my retro games. That is the reason why I need overlays, it looks much nicer for me, without black space at the left and right side.

    But it doesnt work. Here what I did:


    path: recalbox\share\system\configs\retroarch\snes.cfg

    content of snes.cfg:

    input_overlay = "/recalbox/share/system/configs/retroarch/overlays/snes_overlay.cfg"


    path: "/recalbox/share/system/configs/retroarch/overlays/snes_overlay.cfg"

    content of snes_overlay.cfg:

    overlays = "1"

    overlay0_overlay = "snes.png"

    overlay0_full_screen = "true"

    overlay0_descs = "0"


    path: "/recalbox/share/system/configs/retroarch/overlays

    Can anybody help me? where is the error? Or a Bug of the beta version of recalbox?

    Thanks in advance

    PS: Yes I know the manual: https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Retroarch-setup-overlays-(EN)

    I did every step within the chapter Overlays by system

  • Bonjour, tout d'abord bravo et merci au developpeur, je suis novice mais j'ai fais divers test, voici les bug que je rencontre sur la beta:

    -Quand on switch entre audio HDMI a Jack, il y a un petit bug de navigation dans le menu

    -Certains jeux ou emulateur : l'avance rapide fonctionne, mais pas le rembobinage.

    -Sur Game and Watch avec le jeux en Multiscreen (donky Kong) plantage quand on saute. (ce n'est peut-être pas lié a la béta)

    A vous de voir si ça vous est utile !


  • I downloaded the version from here but every time I start again it does not save the changes and I always have to reconfigure

  • @mantics Do you mean changes of metadata (gamelists, favorites,...)?
    In this case, just wait for new beta or final release.
    It's a known issue and developers have written that it's even fixed already on their side but not released yet.

  • ok, thank you.

  • Hello. Excuse me if here it is not the place to post this.

    Could you please add the controller layout images for:

    Atari 5200
    WonderSwan Color

    The controller layout of rest of systems is very useful with kids. Thanks.

  • @mantics If you want to have something stable while waiting, then go for batocera. It is not so cool like recalbox but at least it is stable with pi3+ since a couple of releases. I think recalbox stable release for pi3+ will probably still take some time. Or if you want to help with the recalbox beta, then you are more than welcome to send here every bug you find :)
