Just wanted to say thank you once again for this wonderful software emulation package. I put it here because it does involve some troubleshooting and your software was the one that came to save the day once again.
Retropie crashed on me. AGAIN.
This time, the Kodi 17.1 beta that came out for them and they had the instructions on how to update it to that version along with the joystick updates so that it would work. So I did it thinking it would fix my issues with Kodi....this box has been exclusively programmed to work with the Retropie package....lo and behold, not only did it crash on me, it then prevented Emulation Station from reading ANY of the controllers or keyboards connected to the USB ports so I couldn't program it. Also, since the Pi 3 couldn't complete the boot process, it couldn't obtain an IP address, so no net access through Putty or WinSCP either. Flashed a USB drive to create a temporary Ubuntu environment to try to copy the ROMs and fiolder structure off of there to try to rebuild the card, couldn't do that either.
180+ GB worth of games on a 200 GB Sandisk Class 10 UHS-1 Micro SD card. Down the $#!++er.
This marked the 10th time Retropie has crashed on me over some bull$#!+. I was mad.
So I torched it and reformatted the micro SD card. With my games on USB drives, and me on the road, of course, I had remembered Recalbox, and then waited to update the Pi with it. I love you guys. Seriously. Thank you for making it so easy and painless to get up and running with both video gaming and Kodi.
I'm not a computer amateur by any means, but Retropie is such a God-dmned pain in the @$$ to f**ing use and set up. Recalbox makes life so much easier. Thank you all for such a wonderful piece of software.
