RICK DANGEROUS IS BACK!! This time he has gone all out PURE EDITION !!! This 400gb Retropie build promises to be something extra special that can be ran on SSD or MICRO SD (see details below).
Image is pishrinked and will first boot the intro video expand and auto reboot.
When making the image I was using a 400gb sandisk card which is more than bigger enough.
I since have purchased the argon one case expansion and a m.2 ssd this is totally optional the sdcard was more than fast enough.
To get this up and running I needed to update the OS
sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade
Users of SSD will have to make sure they have updated eeprom to boot from USB
Then for my personal setup I added the line dtparam=sd_poll_once to the bottom of the boot config.txt to stop constant attempts to read sdcard. I set to disable by default in boot config.txt for the Image I am sharing otherwise sdcard users wont be able to use image!
If you are using similar setup to me with SSD then just uncomment the line #dtparam=sd_poll_once by removing the # sign.
Image has continued to grow since the first release of my 64gb gold image
New clean install of latest retropie 4.7.1 and updated to latest release!
This image is stable and uses all versions of emulators and software which is recommended on retropie forums.
Only a few experimental packages which were not available installed to avoid crashes and keep the build clean.
If you want to keep the image as stable as possible then I strongly advise against constant updates as this often breaks things. E.G. new emulator updates can stop some of the games included working!
Image is Overclocked * Moderate * Use at own risk
Its a recommended overclock not extreme.
For more details see https://magpi.raspberrypi.org/
For the included systems no need to go higher. I have tested makes very little difference.
I am using the original argon one case and the same overclock running for almost a year without issue.]
Epic Noir Modified
I personally changed all the theme artworks for my own images edited in photoshop with a new style while keeping the size down for speed and being able to see the image across the whole screen.
Lots of work done with this theme.
Overlay’s For Supported system included with minimum distraction in mind and focus on gaming.
My Own Custom Arcade Overlay Included.
I love the bezel project overlay’s but found them to distracting for gaming although extremely nice to look at. ( Personal Choice)
Arcade Is using latest fbneo for approx 90 percent of the games and rest mame 2010 and mame 2003 plus all games tested on each core to see which runs best.
Also each core as correct roms for it!
My Image has taken a new direction where before I didnt want to have any duplicates for games e.g. pac-man on atari and on arcade, now If I find a system has a very highly rated and unique version of the game I include it also. Tons of research has gone into choosing the games and which game has unique extras etc
Some users of my previous images have requested an image without playbox setup and this is the image I am working with as I have more control over the additions and the setup of the image. This is my personal setup which I use daily.
Rick Dangerous & Spryo The Dragon is also a highly recommended image. ( My previous Rom Sets plus New sets added by Spryo and all the bells and whistles) lots of Playbox Goodies! More systems supported, A Very polished complete image.
DosBox Pure Setup and tested for all dos games
Every game on image I have researched in all retro gamer magazines, top review sites, forums for each systems and highly rated youtube videos.
All descriptions have been adjusted in gamelist to fit theme window so no scrolling which is very difficult to read.
All games have been edited and added to collections.
Lots of control configurations and emulator choice settings adjusted for best results.
Nothing changed what would cause any issues only changes supported by retropie forum devs.
There are so many games to choose from and I have been researching for years if a game is not included you want then please feel free to add it to your collection.
Lots of great kids games added!
Video Snaps and Box art for every game.
Latest No Intro or Redump for all games if available
Remember sharing is caring. Enjoy All.
