YET ANOTHER Virtualman release from the man who supposedly gave it all up back in November last year – still we are not complaining as these images are insane, we just wish they werent every week, hopefully this new image is fully ready and tested. This version is backward compatible for the pi 3 (1.2Ghz) and p plus(1.4Ghz) DrewTalks new favorite 256gb image with retropie 4.4.
** VIRTUALMAN V6.3-4.4.0 EDITION RETROPIE+ES+ATTRACT (Pi3B and Pi3B+ Ready!)
** PLATINUM EDITION: 256GB** (Quality all exclusive Content) **
** GOLD EDITION: 128GB (Limited Selected Content)**
** STANDARD EDITION: 16GB/32GB (NO ROMS, good for users that want to use external HDD)**
** IMPORTANT NOTES – PLEASE READ!**
@everyone **TIP** All Virtualman images are pishrinked (this facilitates people with cheap SD card).
What this means only on FIRST BOOT you will see splash screen video load, right after you will see blank cursor
(THIS is NORMAL) as it’s AUTO expanding drive behind the scenes (GIVE IT AT LEAST 1-3 MINUTES TURN IT OFF/THEN REBOOT)
AND ALL WILL BE OPERATIONAL!) After rebooting your pi (WILL TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO RESIZE AND ITS DONE)
BEFORE it gets into ES. Then it will be normal boot next time.
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.
**IN A NUTSHELL**
24+ Systems: Total 8300+ games, 2140+ ARCADE, 342 PSX, 320 N64, 55 SEGACD, 15 DREAMCAST, and all top portable/console/arcade systems.
**I DO NOT ENDORSE ANYONE MAKING ANY MONEY WITH THIS BUILD, ONLY FOR HOBBY AND TESTING PURPOSES!**
All same customization from 6.2 and several added post fixes, splash videos, music , scripts and of course Pi3B and Pi3B+ Ready/updates
**100% COMPATIBLE Pi3B and Pi3B+ – RASPIAN STRETCH & Retropie 4.4.0 PRE-INSTALLED.

*IMPORTANT: A very small 1% chance (Arcade only) that a rom may not load, you simply need to press A after launch and point it to proper emulator. Please report this on discord and we will do our best to make it work.
*IMPORTANT: N64 as you all know not all will load (some won’t load at all and some requires press A to tweak emulator to load etc…).
*IMPORTANT: N64 I want to leave this library with you to tweak so one day emulators (software and hardware) will get better overtime to hopefully run these n64 games. You can delete as you see fit.
*IMPORTANT: Dreamcast and N64 requires retroarch/emulator tweaking to be optimized, it’s best if you OVERCLOCK.
– Fix Attractmode permanent fix (when updated)
– 31 top music collection (not annoying but you can customize or disable for RPMenu)
– 15 top random splashscreen videos on boot (can customize)
– Added some preferred pre-loaded themes. All work well and tested and support collections.
– Compressed all ROMS (zip) and CD based games (PBP,CHD,CSO)
– 6 Ports (Quake Bundle, Duke Nukem 3D & **BRUTAL DOOM!**)
– Note: Best experience with keyboard/mouse but controllers have limited functions and it works.
– Completely cleaned and revamped all artwork (skraper.net) and all gamelist.xml optimized with more meta data.
– Every ROMS gone through for artwork alignment.
– Hands down the best lightweight (simple to use) AttractMode aka Hyperspin (only 350MB)updated layouts/themes/artwork (highly optimized and for all systems!!!!!)
* Overclock is not required but recommended if you plan to use it as your main front-end on Pi3B, Pi3B+ runs really well stock.
– Added additional enhanced RetroPie Setup Menu scripts (Dreamcast remove date/time, Bezels, Enhanced HDD, ES Collections, Disable Music, Power Function, Switch Frontend ES or Attract, Overclock, System Info etc…)
– Pre-Generated top 15 ES Custom Arcade Classic collections, enable all of theme by default. Enable/Disable from ES->Start->GAME COLLECTION…
– Custom Arcade Bezels (Arcade Old School) collection
– Fixed several Arcade games to boot and perform better.
– Fixed PSX Pro Pinball Series games to work, added extra emulator to support it. You will need keyboard to configure controller but works well overall.
– Fix retroarch for all systems not saving on exit and enable/disable auto save/load state should work now.
