Alright, thank you for your input. I thought I might have to reset it, but wanted to be sure in case something like this happens in the future. I will definitely set it up to store roms externally.
Thank you again.
I setup recalbox on an RPi 3 b+ for a friend of mine. We were adding roms to it when I noticed the low voltage symbol in the top right, and shortly after the pi froze. I had to pull the power plug from it, and after investigating, it looks like my friend had removed the USB wall plug I gave him and instead plugged it into a regular cable plugged into the front panel of his PC, which must have been the low voltage issue. Since then it won't boot past the black splash screen with Pac Man you get right before the main screen. If I turn on the pi I can still connect to it and modify files, I've made sure to backup all his roms/bios/settings.
Is there a way to recover this installation, or will I need to blow it away and reinstall?
Well, I feel a little silly, but I figured it out. The issue persists with my xbox controller, but I figured out why the ps3 controller wasn't wanting to work. I had the p1 controller set to default like the rest of them, which defaulted to the xbox controller which only worked when I replugged it in.
When I set p1 controller to the ps3 and p2 to the xbox, things are working well enough. The ps3 controller works in games, but the xbox controller still needs to be replugged (I may not use it much from now on anyway)
Sorry for the confusion, thank you.
So, controllers have been a constant issue for me since starting to work with recalbox. Either they wouldn't pair, they wouldn't be recognized SOMETHING would keep me using a keyboard. I've been using a wired xbox controller, and that worked for the most part. I recently got a ps3 controller from a friend, it pairs just fine (even though I have to re-pair it every time I reboot) but once I launch a game it stops working.
This is an issue with every controller I've found except my usb keyboard. With my wired xbox controller I just have to unplug and plug it back in, but the ps3 controller is dead in the water.
Any help for troubleshooting these issues would be appreciated.
Edit: I forgot to add, if I use my xbox controller to exit the game back to the menu, the ps3 controller continues to work fine on menus, without having to re-pair it.
Sorry to Necropost, but this is relevant to an issue I'm having.
I guess this is a question more for xtreemsmurf.
I tried syncing with a dongle, and using the internal bluetooth, and neither will even recognize the controller.
Does anyone know a good way to set these up?
