Have you set it up in the es.system.cfg? It can be located in two places:

~/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg

/etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg

Hi thanks for your reply,

Yes tried this too as follow, but nothing to do, and the  emulators.cfg file was correct too.

 

I added this information to the file.

<system>
<fullname>Amiga</fullname>
<name>amiga</name>
<path>/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/amiga</path>
<extension>.uae</extension>
<command>/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 0 _SYS_ amiga %ROM%</command>
<platform>amiga</platform>
<theme>amiga</theme>
</system>

Adding the system manually as above is the only way. It will not auto populate since it is using a custom order.  Looking through a completed es_systems.cfg the entry shows:

<system>

<name>amiga</name>

<fullname>Commodore Amiga</fullname>

<path>/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/amiga</path>

<extension>.adf .adz .dms .ipf .lha .sh .uae .zip .ADF .ADZ .DMS .IPF .LHA .SH .UAE .ZIP</extension>

<command>/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 0 _SYS_ amiga %ROM%</command>

<platform>amiga</platform>

<theme>amiga</theme>

</system>

Be sure to check extensions and remember they are case-sensative. That seems to be the only thing different that would matter.

Are there any Amiga exclusives, or a list of absolute must haves?  A 256gb RetroRama Rampage is in the works and a unique list of games surely can make the cut. (Not the 2000+ games I see on many images)   MSX 2 already made it on!

Having the same trouble as you.
Will be nice to see how this thread goes.

Are you using the Amiberry install from /optional packages?

I started looking into Amiga.  For sure Amiberry is the way to go. I gathered a collection of roms in .LHA.  There is still a lot to learn, especially with WHDload (BTW, any useful tips are greatly appreciated)    I searched forums/blogs for Amiga exclusives, as well as top lists.  I really would like to include "Lost Treasures of Infocom" in .LHA format – if any one can assist please let me know.  As I get Amiberry working, I'll post exactly what es_systems.cfg setting I used.  Below is a pastebin link to the list of games I came up with. Please feel free to recommend others that you want to see on there.

I'm new, but have you added a rom to the Amiga subfolder?  I believe the emulator won't show up on the frontend if there isn't a rom in the subfolder.

Hey John,

Thanks for your reply, they were already preinstalled images (3 games in total) but nothing to show, I will try to add more roms if this will could fix the issue, but as Rampage said is a custom img. Could be that I'm missing something else.

I can confirm that Amiga is working using the system config entry listed above.  Don't forget the "kick" Bios files needed as well as a folder in Amig config if you are using WHB loader like I chose.  Still needs some tweaking but it plays.

I was working on getting Amiga working, then got side tracked getting a few specific games setup – specifically Lost Treasures of Infocom. That rabbit hole led me to adding Z-machine System, an Interaction Fiction text based games. I added Lost Treasures of Infocom I & II collections, then a bunch of the best rated/award winning Interactive Fiction games, manually copying & pasting all the meta data and adding artwork.

Now I'm back to setting up Amiga. Amiberry/WHD boot files are pretty amazing.  The WHD boot files are contains everything needed to boot & play games – complete with loading screens. Each one is custom configured per game. Amiberry is also set up to use a retroarch controller config so all controllers should map correctly, and HOTKEY + X opens MENU, HOTKEY + START will EXIT.   I still need to scrape art/metadata that is missing as well as check each game to make sure they load properly.   If anyone is interested I can put up what I have so far, along with any settings I am using.

Hey Rampage,

Nice work, I didn't have much time to dedicate to my project, but I'm very interested to your.

I just finished up Amiga!  I learned a lot along the way.  By far the most time consuming was getting everything scraped properly, with Meta, artwork & vids. A LOT of manual renaming & editing.  I included 227 games.  Just a FYI, SkyScraper by Muldjord now scrapes Amiga .lha archives using WHDload_db.xml so that should eliminate the need to manually rename roms to scrape properly. If anyone wants to test out what I have for amiberry just let me know.
