Hi All !

I am new to world of pi 4, and also new to world of retrogaming, for which I can't wait to have to have my Pi working with a lot of my favorite retro games ! But as a beginner , I 'm afraid of doing quite a lot of stupid mistakes... So right now, I have my Pi running with Raspbian on top, and Retropie I have installed on Raspbian.

But no rom installed yet on it...

I have several questions such as should I get a dedicated SD card without Raspbian and just  Retropie on it ? Wich siez of SD card is recommended is 128 Go OK ?

Are PI 3 images compatible with the Pi 4 ?

I am downloading an image right now which is : DamasoNostalgiaTrip128gbPi4.img

How do I install this image ? does it contain the emulation on it such as Retropie, or just the roms ?

Thanks for all I will be able to learn on this forum, and again sorry for the basic questions I have....

Regards,

Fred

Get the biggest SD Card you can , then you can play the biggest image you can download - Pi 4 will be official in the next few months - there will be some insane size images for it

No

This is an image, it contains EVERYTHING, including Retropie and the ROMs
