Recalbox 6.0 is OUT! Codename: Dragonblaze

  • Thanks for this new Recalbox version. I like this OS a lot compared to others due to its ease of use and simplicity.

    Raspberry 3B+ user :)

  • I'm now a 3B+ user, and i can say this release is awesome. Everything runs clean and smooth, MegaPI case working with latching on/off switch, and found a performance gain on some N64 games. Yay. Only minor issues i had:

    • ES crashes if you try to pair a bluetooth device with Wifi disabled. It was a honest mistake right after trying to pair a device on a fresh image install. Maybe a warning that wifi needs to be enable when you try to pair through ES would do the trick :)
    • When using 2 usb Xbox 360 gamepads, and turning on a 3rd PS3 bluetooth controller(already paired), the PS3 controller gets recognized as player 3(and the controller index lights indicate so), but as soon as i select a game, it gets remaped/reindexed as player 1.
    • If I configure ES to use static gamelist.xml only to improve load performance(and since i add romsets once), ES will crash.

    I can provide further logs if needed :)

  • Hi guys,
    Great work my Rpi3b+ thanks you. PS4 controller recognized right away, no major issue with Kodi.
    I just face the black screen with the pacman ghosts, recalbox logo when I press F4 to reach the terminal.
    Any idea why?

  • As I can edit my previous message, I've got new issues:

    1. Wifi is not working when I "reboot" from Putty. Then I need to manually go into the menu, disable and enable the wifi to have a connected status and get my IP.

    2. My 2.4g keyboard is not detected by the RPi. I looked at lsusb and /dev/input/ as mentioned here https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Keyboard-encoder-configuration-(EN)
      My keyboard (no name purchased on https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Desxz-Original-H9-2-4G-Mini-Wireless-Game-Keyboard-RGB-Backlit-With-7-Colorful-Backlight-Touchpad/32923551234.html) is not listed here: https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Compatibility-(EN) but works with Raspbian/Windows/Android TV...
      Any help?

    3. Scrapper doesn't work, it goes back to black screen with pacman ghosts and recalbox logo

  • Hello guys, thank you for this release and for all the good work! I have some problems with N64 though that I never experienced on the older versions. From the gamelist menu, when I run any N64 game, I get the screen "recalbox'" and then it comes back to the menu. It's the same for all the N64 games whatever the file extension. I didn't modify anything, just installed the latest version, put a ps4 controller and added some games... Do you know what is going on? Thanx a lot

  • Hi, this new release looks awesome but I am having an issue with the x64 build. I have tried on 2 separate machines and 2 separate hard drives. It all starts well, I get my roms copied over and games play. Then randomly it reboots and I've lost everything. It seems like the main partition is being lost. All the config and log files show 0bytes size. I've tried everything I can to resolve this but I'm not a Linux guy or a developer so I'm kinda lost now. Any help would be very much appreciated.

  • I managed to get this from a log.

    @recalmanc try flashing your sd card again and wait patiently when booting up recalbox the first time until you reach ES. Otherwise partitions won’t be created properly.

  • @paradadf Thanks for the reply - I have done this several times. It completes and the larger drive is there; I get it loaded up with ROMS and then randomly it looses that partition and goes back to basic settings.

    I'm running this on a 240gb SSD, i7 with 4GB RAM.

    @recalmanc can you give me the output of df -h?

  • @paradadf

    df -h

    @recalmanc it looks good to me. Sadly, I don’t know what’s happening.

  • @recalmanc , this also happened to me several times.
    I think, it may happened because you don't shutdown recalbox properly.
    Do not shutdown using the PC power ON/Off button, but use software "Shutdown" in the recalbox menu instead. If you not shutdown properly, the "share" partition will not be unmounted properly, and recalbox will not be able to mount it again at the next boot because the partition will have errors.
    If it happened, unplug your hard disk and plug it under a linux system, then use "fsck" command to repair the faulty partition, it worked for me.

  • @garmadon That makes sense as I just noticed that the "Skraper" app I was using was restarting my recalbox machine after each system was complete. I guess it doesn't shut it down correctly. I have stopped using it and I've been stable for a lot longer than I have so far.

    Thank you for your help.

  • @paradadf No worries, I think I worked it out (see below). Thanks for trying to assist though! :)

  • @recalmanc , yes i think you're right. Skraper may be responsible.
    It happened to me just yesterday at the end of a scrap using the same software.
    Skraper reboot the whole operating system after each scrap. It should restart only "emulation station".

  • @garmadon :) At least I wasn't going insane :) Now all I have to do is work out how to make this all work with my x-Arcade Dual joystick and put it all in my cabinet and I'm good to go!

    Thanks for everyones help.

  • My Wifi isn't working until I re enter the password everytime even without any special characters. Is there a solution for this?

  • Hello, first of all Recalbox is one of the finest thing out there.Thx for all the good work.
    Is there some new informations about x86 x64_84 installation/startup issues. I used to have 18.7.13 which was great.
    But I never got any update for dragonblaze, which from what I found out on this forum doesn t work. You need to install a fresh copy.
    So I made a backup, at least stuff is secured. Used Balenea to install the dragonbalze on my Ssd. Installation stars at least screens shows booting recalbox. After a while the ES interface appears shows which music is playing then goes back to the black screen with booting recalbox. I waited at least 30 min but nothing happend.I am able to acces web interface from the recalbox, from there I restart ES the interface shows up a then dissapears after 5 sec again. This is the issue with x86. On the 64 version interface seems to work a bit better but when I try to pair a bluetooth controller, it also crahes the interface and I m again on the booting recalbox screen. From the webinterface I can also restart Es interface but pairing seems not to work well.
    I decided to install the beta version from santa claus and febuary from the forum. The issues is exactly the same.
    Cloud it be that the 6 builds version have some hardware compatibility issues?

    My config is the following.
    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
    Intel Gma4500
    Ssd 500G Adata Spx900.

    Is there a way to download the 18.7.13 x86 again ?

    Best regards.
