Recalbox 7.0

custom overlay for megadrive, sega32x, mastersystem



  • I'm trying to config one overlay for each of those systems. But it sets the last one for all others.

    If recakbox.conf I've added the lines:

    sega32x.configfile=/recalbox/share/system/.config/retroarch/config/picodrive_libretro-2.cfg
    megadrive.configfile=/recalbox/share/system/.config/retroarch/config/picodrive_libretro-6.cfg
    mastersystem.configfile=/recalbox/share/system/.config/retroarch/config/picodrive_libretro-1.cfg

    each of these configuration files is correctly configured to use the right overlay.

    I have noticed that a file picodrive_libretro.so.cfg was created and it seems to be using this one. This file has the last overlay I set.

    What I'm doing wrong?

    tks,

    Hello
    in recalbox overlay is not possible, we must modified configgen and others things to use overlays with differents systems.
    Recalbox team work actually for this integration in recalbox 4.1.0
    you will be patient.



  • but this is not a retroarch setting?

    Nop it 's more complicated.



  • @acris he is using custom retroarch config files, so configgen is greatly bypassed

    @howlerbr how can you be sure your config files work ? You should make a pastebin of each of them if you want us to check



  • recalbox.conf: http://pastebin.com/uDt9zraB

    See in my recalboxconf example for megadrive.The file it points has the following content (picodrive_libretro-6.cfg) http://pastebin.com/sqPBV6kJ

    But for some reason it uses the conf picodrive_libretro.so.cfg: http://pastebin.com/WbUYcZm9

    tks for the support

    try to modifiy this line :

    overlay_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/overlay"
    config_save_on_exit = "true"

    to
    overlay_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/overlay/sega32X"
    config_save_on_exit = "false"



  • @howlerbr you should link one of your overlay files, and consider manuallt editing your custom cfg files for a better readability. But that's not mandatory. Start following Acris' advice and tell ushow it goes



  • @acris you made may day! tks it worked like a charm!! tks for the support
