Directions:

2. Un-zip and flash to your card
3. Put in Pi
4. Enjoy Video
5. Expand file system/if it doesn’t auto
6. Reboot
7. Use game wizard
8. If needed drag and drop the added favorites theme folder into your theme via winscp

Notes:

Enable/Disable music: The music might still play in some emulators. Now you can turn it off/on in the RetroPie menu.

Favorites platform: Drop your games from just about any system into your favorites rom folder. When launching the game press A then pick the “emulator for this rom” find that rom type emulator from the list and it will launch. I’ll also add in a generic favorites theme folder you can just drop into your favorite theme. So you at least don’t have a blank one.

OC and Zram: If you plan on overclocking do a lite-mid like 1300 to 1350, and adjust the memory split to get your best performanc. I’ve had the GPU up to 880 (without OC) menu was slow but the games ran great. You’ll get a bit more out of the zram when you OC but the higher you go the more the CPU relies on the swap memory, which can cause issues. OC at your own risk. Never OC without a fan and heat sinks.

This is a cracking image, that we know can be altered and edited to suit – is perfect for anyone who doesnt like to distribute roms but would like their friends and family to have a little Pi machine and get their own roms (without having to look too hard!)

Check out the official FaceBook groups : TEAM ZT  / GAMEWIZARD ZT (No we dont understand why they need two groups either lol!) – Big shouts to the guys involved in this project, we are very happy to be supporters of this project in both donations and server/rack space (Yes we do re-invest that adfly money into things!) – Grab this now , OR, hang fire for a very special version dropping soon…..
