[Moonlight] Surround sound and quit issues

  • Hi

    Can someone talk me through the process of adding the "-surround" option to Moonlight on recalbox.
    Another problem I have is whenever I quit a PC game being streamed via Moonlight it freezes (on PC and pi3) with nVidia Moonlight grey background. Is this is known bug? Is there a fix for this? I have to shutdown the task on the PC side before the screens return to normal.

  • Hi,

    The sutdown problem can happen sometimes. Don't know the steps to reproduce it, neither how to solve it. This happened to me a few times.

    Concerning your option, have a look at the moonlight.conf in the configs/moonlight folder, it's easier than adding a parameter to the binary

  • Do you mean /recalbox/share/system/configs/moonlight/moonlight.conf ?

  • Yes my good sir

  • I don't see anything regarding "-surround" in moonlight.conf

  • i hoped it would work, but no

    then you have to :

    • mount -o remount, rw /
    • nano /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/configgen/generators/moonlight/moonlightGenerator.py
    • add commandArray.append('-surround')just before commandArray.append('-app')(you MUST respect the indentation !!!!!)
    • save the file (CTRL+X, say yes everytime)
    • launch your game

  • @subs
    It worked!! Home Theatre show Multi Input now.
    You guys are on another level. Thank you!
    Am I pushing my luck by asking whether Retroarch games (MAME) can be output in 5.1 surround sound?

  • Do you realise stereo barely existed at tjat time on arcade cabs ? ;)

  • :-) lol, yes.
