@chakaman69 said in How to copy from MAME to Recalbox and Hardware Compatibility:
This is what I meant to say:
I was curious as to what I need to copy over to the ROMS folder, BIOS, etc. I am trying to migrate away from MAMEUI on my cabinet. Also, I have an X-Arcade Tankstick with a Turbo Twist 2 Spinner. Are these game controllers compatible with Recalbox? I am going to use a Raspberry Pi 4B and I saw that I only have 4 ports. Am I able to use a powered USB hub with that unit?
You’ll basically put all MAME roms and BIOS (e.g. neogeo, pgm, zn1) into the mame “roms” folder on Recalbox. Don’t need to use the Recalbox bios folder - MAME is an exception here. The wiki previously linked should have this on the arcade page but I didn’t check (currently on mobile).
As far as the Tankstick, it worked great but there’s currently a bug (more or less) in recent Recalbox versions preventing it from working correctly. Search the forum for another thread with Xarcade - it contains a workaround file you can download and copy over to the system. This is expected to be fixed I in a future version and I’ve used the stick myself in the past to great effect.
(Edit: not sure about the spinner….maybe it can be mapped as an analog stick??)
Lastly, you can definitely use a USB hub but I’m not sure how well the Pi will do with 5+ USB devices…
