Virtualman recently dropped a smaller-than-usual image for Pi 4 users, this “Arcade Only”, “Retro Arcade Bliss” image is much smaller than his usual 512gb offerings. This is a solid image and with the usual Virtualman refinements such as his built in “update/fix” script , which makes sure if there are any updates/errors to the image, it downloads and applies them!
From the same Loaded 512GB Pi4 Retro-Bliss-Revolution image you all love, but shrunk down to 128GB (4.5GB free) and targeted for Arcade cab and Arcade1up modes/enthusiast in mind! This is a semi-light version to get you all started as DIY build and make it your own to expand on as you see fit.
** IMPORTANT NOTES **
** This Pi image is pre-pishrinked (this is because there is way less systems-roms has lots of empty space)! **
** This Pi image has the latest rpi-eeprom boot loader so you can now flash direct to USB-HDD and boot without a SD card. **
1. What this means only on FIRST BOOT you will see partial splash screen video load then followed by black screen, it will reboot a few times on it’s own to AUTO expand.Â (GIVE IT AT LEAST 1-3 MINUTES and LET IT AUTO EXPAND this will vary depending on size SD card/type you have.)
2. THIS is NORMAL, SECOND BOOT boot you should see normal intro splash screen video and behind scenesÂ (WILL TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO RESIZE AND ITS DONE!, ALL WILL BE OPERATIONAL!)Â and you should see EmulationStation. (THIS IS A GOOD SIGN).
NOTE: IF YOU KILL IT it wont expand and you ll get errors that you have 0KB space and wont save any settings you do afterwards and will give you errors in any emulator. This only applies to this base edition, loaded edition will not be pre-pishrinked.
There is now also a BASE EDITION (32gb) with no ROMs available to download (usenet)
