@zing Sorry my bad!
I was just asking the OP to clarify his set up in case he was actually using the new and incompatible Pi3B+
Been a long (long!) time reader of the Recalbox forum, but finally decided I really should join, hence I look like a newbie.
Got a Retropie setup, as well as Recalbox, but I much prefer Recalbox. Sure you cant tweak it as much, it doesnt have Steve's brilliant scraper and it has loads of emulators missing, but, it just....works! And thats what matters.
Started off in 1984 with a Sinclair ZX Spectrum, moved across to a C64 & then onto the Amiga.
I was involved in the Amiga scene & was a member of a few cracking crews, and also done music demo's, which unfortunately there arent many left. Im known as SMURPHOID on the Kestra Amiga demo database.
If you search for "Access - Symbolia - Amiga Demo" you can see a lot of my graphic animations despite the comments left, & I think one of my music demos is still there if you look for "Access - Accessive Music Vol. 2" (I also did the graphics on the loading screen with the howler of a spelling mistake) - ah to be young again....

RE: Neo Geo 18.04.20 geht nicht,
Entschuldigung, Deutsch ist keine Sprache, die ich sehr oft benutze.
Sie können keine Neo-Geo-Spiele spielen, es sei denn, Sie finden diese Zip-Datei, da sie alle Neo-Go-ROMs enthält, die der Emulator benötigt, damit er funktionieren kann.
RE: Recalbox 18.04.20 is out!
My post from 5 minutes ago has vanished?
I was asking @substring if the fatal memory leak bug was fixed in this release, as it was mentioned last week someone had discovered a fix just after it looked like it might take a while to track down.
RE: DC compatibility
I have the bios files in the bios folder and the following .cdi files just sitting in the dreamcast folder, and they all run at 100% speed with no overclocking, so if you grab a few of these and you have issues, its either a setup issue your end, or you have a bad "dump"

RE: I need advice to scrape amiga whdl folders
I narrowed down my collection to 2200 ish "meaningful" games, and in every case had to rename the folder as mentioned above, ie shadowofthebeast3 became "Shadow Of The Beast 3", then copy the folders over to the Pi, and only then ran the script to bulk generate the .uae files. I then did the XML scrape on the "mix" setting, and got, literally, 99% of the pics I needed.
I think it got 2100+ of them, with only a few random wild miss matches - I always always always after scraping use ARRM and sort inname order, then I can look at the columns to establish the name given in the scrape matches the name of the file, so I know its a correct match.
Even with 2000+ games you can check very quickly for miss matches.
I had read that I should avoid the adf files, as the whdl versions had a better "hit" rate, but Ive tried about 20 at random, and 3 didnt work, giving out of memory errors - a worrying fail rate.
I had used the default "empty" uae file, but even when increasing the chip and / or fast mem in that file, it made no difference.
But, if my friends find more that dont work then I will worry - I could just have picked games that have issues by pure chance and its not really an issue.
As everyone else says, I definitely think using whdl versions IS the way to go, especially with multi disk games, as some adf ones insist disk 2 or 3 must be in the "first" drive - a pain......
