get nothing but errors in ssh. There appears to be a file I need, and I downloaded it, but I'm not sure where it goes or how I would even get it there via ssh from a windows PC.
Hi @dinkydinkypoo, I’m quoting the part above where I believe the issue lies. There is indeed a general problem with Xarcade sticks in current Recalbox versions. The instructions you found in that thread are supposed to be a working fix (haven’t tested personally but others report success).
To help you out here, use a program called “WinSCP” to copy the downloaded file over SSH (SSH is a “protocol”, like the HTTP in your web browser). As far as “where it goes” on the Recalbox side, in Linux you use the ‘/‘ symbol to show folders. So something like /usr/bin/folder means you navigate to “usr” first, then “bin” inside that and finally “folder” inside that. WinSCP looks just about like the native Windows file browser so you should be able to map things out.
You will then need to use a program called PuTTY (spelled like that) to login over ssh and type the handful of commands shown in that workaround thread. Possible alternative here is using a command line smart phone app (e.g. Termius on iOS) if you have trouble with PuTTY’s interface. YouTube can be helpful here as well.
To be honest, if you didn’t do those steps, nothing else is likely to solve this. The other jstest info is useful but the Xarcadr situation can best be described as “buggy with workaround” at this point in time. AFAIK, there’s already a solid bug report sent to the developers (I’m on mobile now).
