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

  • @rouglas
    Hi, I‘d prefer Pi3 B+ too, because internal bluetooth is much better. No more input lag like on Pi3 B. -> On Pi3 B I have to use CSR based USB bluetooth dongle, which brings issues with latest 8Bitdo pads though!

    I can confirm, DualShock 4 (PS4 Pad 2nd Gen) is working fine too with Pi3 B+‘s internal blutooth, same as latest 8Bitdo Pads (G Bros and SF30 Pro), all working like a charm.

    It just depends if you can wait for stable and/or you can live with remaining issues of beta. -> If you want a stable version NOW, choose Pi3 B. But on the other hand you may have to live with other disadvantages like lag of its interernal bluetooth then. It‘s not easy to make a decision at all as nobody can say when new stable for Pi3 B+ will be released ;)

  • @grinningmoon can you elaborate? I've tried your suggestions. I've tried disabled "Enable Fanart" and "Enable Trailer (Youtube)" in The Movie Database scrapper. I've tried opening System/Settings/Media Settings to disable "Allow file renaming and deletion", "Extract thumbnails and video information", "Extract chapter thumbnails", "replace file names with library titles", and "Download actor thumbnails". Nothing is working. Can you please explain what I really shoud do? Thank you

    I prefer Pi3b+, more systems,

    As far as I know there isn't more systems for pi3b+ than pi3b ?
    Some of them might work a little better but that's all, is that what you meant ?

  • @voljega Atari 800, Atari 5200, plus new systems Pokémini, Mattel intellivision on the x-mas build and so on...
    They aren't present on the stable RPI3b version.

  • Staff

    @scavy but those systems are also available in the beta for other boards, not only the pi3b+.

  • @paradadf Yes, and that's why i talked about the stable build.

  • Staff

    @scavy yes but you said

    I prefer Pi3b+, more systems

    And that point is misleading, nothing more.

    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.

    Is it a problem only on my side, or service mode button has been forgotten on the beta for mame2003 + ?

  • Staff

    @choum such things come from the emulator itself and not from recalbox. Your best bet is to look into its documentation (if any) or ask in github/libretro‘s forum.

  • @paradadf i see what you mean... But if you want to use a beta version (with more systems) of recalbox for your coming RPi, which one will you buy ? A 3b or a 3b+ version ? in that case, the question is nonsense :) you'll choose the 3b+ ^^

  • @paradadf I found the settings to change :

    Hotkey + B to open retroarch menu
    quick menu -> options -> input interface -> simultaneous

    After that you can open service mode for some roms with F2 on keyboard

  • @scavy : They try to explain to you : the beta isn't ONLY on Pi 3B+. That's the reason why you seems to be not enough precise.
    (i'm french, sorry if my english is approximative)

  • Which version of the recalbox I installed on my computer or I encountered wifi problem, or I scratched the resolution problem.

    @jorgemagana FBA_libretro romset in beta ist still not

    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 romset.

    Same situation with NeoGeo folder.

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

    Finally I did another fresh install and everything worked again.

  • Hi,
    Recalbox Wifi cannot connect to SSID which isn't broadcasting.
    Once the SSID is broadcasted, the Recalbox connects just fine and remains connected as long as it is not rebooted, even if SSID is hidden after connection. But if the Recalbox reboots, it cannot connect again to the same SSID as long as it stays hidden.

  • Bonjour bonjour,

    J'ai un raspberry 3B+ depuis quelque temps et je suis dernièrement passé de la release où il y avait un bug avec les favoris à la release "christmas" mais depuis cet upgrade lorsque que je laisse mon raspberry allumé cela peut prendre 1h comme 1J, le raspberry plante et entraîne un bug au niveau du réseau.

    Tout les appareils qui sont connectés à ce même switch ne fonctionnement plus. (J'ai testé avec un autre switch et j'ai le même soucis).

    Ma configuration:

    Raspberry Pi model: 3B+
    Recalbox version (build) : Christmas
    Matériels (Micro SD, Power Supply, etc.): Micro SD sandisk 16go, alim aukru 3a
    Manette(s): Xbox 360
    Overclocking: Non

    L'accès à mes roms se fait depuis un partage réseau.
    Elles sont bien toutes visible et je peux jouer sans soucis.

    Il y à juste ces plantages aléatoires qui viennent gâcher mon plaisir lol.

    Merci de votre aide :)

  • Pi3b+
    Slow wifi configuration but it works
    Ps4 controler disconect in game you have to forgot it or restart to work
    Thank for the work guys

  • Bonjour,

    J’ai ma Recalbox qui plante au démarrage, après avoir transféré un gros paquet de jeux, voici ce qu’il se passe:

    J’installe la beta de Noël sur mon 3b+, tout fonctionne normalement, dès lors que j’essaie de transférer toute ma blibliotheque de roms (environ 30Go) ma Recalbox plante au démarrage :

    J’ai la vidéo de démarrage, j’ai la page ES chargement puis un écran noir avec la mention de la version bêta en bas à gauche et ça reste bloqué sur cette page, plus aucune activité du Raspberry, je suis obligé de réinstaller Recalbox, un redémarrage ne suffit pas.

    • J’ai essayé avec les jeux sur la carte micro SD
    • J’ai essayé avec une clé USB et même problème, sauf que là pas besoin de réinstaller le système. En retirant la clé USB et en démarrant sur la carte micro SD le redémarrage fonctionne parfaitement...

    Modèle 3b+
    SanDisk 32Go class 10
    SanDisk usb 64Go
    Bêta de Noël

  • @scream57 essaye de réparer ta clé USB sous Windows

  • Hello,


    • Pi3B+
    • Christmas Beta build


    • WIFI 5GHz is not working.
    • Metadata is not being saved, like hide rom, last played, different core than default.
    • gamelist.xml.xml gets generated in rom folders.
    • daphne did not work at all.
    • dolphin bar is not working, as soon as I start to calibrate, device crashes.
    • Scraping is not working

    Also I would like to mention, that this is the international part of the forum and it really is strange that french seems to be an international language.
    There are a lot of french only discussions going on in this thread, which is very annoying because noone besides french and a couple of canadian people understand this.

    As far as I can see there are subforums for all the different languages present, so why is it that only french people seem to ignore the international topic of this sepcial thread?
    There are no brazilians, netherlands, turkish, hungarians, russian ... - you get it - people that are talking in their native language!?
    Why does the international tag gets ignored and even more annoying, why doesnt it get moderated - but even more annoying - why do the mods even also switch over to french??

    Regards ....
