OBSERVATIONS:

The image won’t work with the RPI4, so don’t download because you will waste time.

My system is a RPi3B, with a 32gb class 10 sdcard and will work with RPi 3B+

The Nintendo DS emulator needs a keyboard for controller configuration. Since the DS is just for 1 person, you can configure both controllers to 1 player, if is that the case.

The OpenBor emulator also needs a keyboard to first configure the controllers.

With AttractMode the Rpi3B can’t handle high definition vídeos, swf arts, etc, all togheter, that’s why I reencoded most vídeos to 320x240. Without this the system become unusable. Even so, the RPi-3B  still get really hot and ocasionally will crash.

You WILL NEED a cooling method (large heatsinks or fans) to the temp get around 55-60 Celsius and a good power source.

The image was conceived for 32GB card, almost ready to use, but can be used in any sdcard and be increased to higher storage and add new games and arts.

The system has romlists for most plataforms (less openbor, amigaand Scummvm), so If you add a game they should immediately show in the wheel (if has the original name – check romlist for the name – usually the rom has the same name of the art that you will find in the internet), but you will need to add the art and vídeo into the respective folders. The romlists that need be remade every time you add a new game is for Commodore Amiga, Openbor and ScummVM (searching the folder).

I recommend to add roms through WinSCP, because RPi3B has many WIFI drops . https://winscp.net/eng/download.php

To reencode the vídeos I suggest Handbreak: https://handbrake.fr/downloads.php

To create or modify Hyperspin themes, use Hypertheme, thats part of the Hyperspin installation pack: https://hyperspin-fe.com/files/file/17585-hyperspin-151-full-package/

To download the arts, I recommend the torrent from the Hyperpie Project: https://files.hyperpie.appboxes.co/HyperPie-v2-Media_Pi_Version.torrent

But you can download also from emumovies and hyperspin.fe

The image was compressed with 7zip (https://www.7-zip.org/download.html) and Winrar

 

FIRST USE:

Download the image and burn to the sdcard. I use Win32DiskImager: https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

Place the sdcard in your RPi, connect a keyboard, the HDMI and then the power source to load the system.

You will need a keyboard connected to the RPi until configure the controller.

When the system loads press TAB. Will show a black screen written “Configure”, select “Controls” This will open a control configuration tab for THE ATTRACTMODE MENU,  this will not work in games.

Once you configure the controller go to “Attract Mode” menu. There go to  “Wifi configuration” and configure the Wifi.

Next, go to “Raspberry Pi” > Advanced Settings > Expand Filsystem

Go to bluetooth if you want to set bluetooth controllers.

If you will not use GPIO, disable mkarcade driver. Just go to Attract  Mode Setup> Retropie> drivers and uninstall the mkarcade driver.

Then, go either “Emulation Station” or “Reset Controllers” to set the in game controllers. The reset controllers option will erase any pre-set emulator/game configuration.

If you want change the Aspect Ratio to 4:3 or 16:9 you have to go to “Configuration editor”

Thats pretty much it.

Hope you enjoy.

PLEASE SEED THE TORRENT. And give me feedback, please.

I followed the instructions posted and it looks great, but for the life of me, I cannot get my controls to save.  I’ve tried removing some of the Psx ROMs to make space in case a space issue.  Any ideas on what to check.  My controls are a custom build, 7 button with coin/start as additionals.  Any help would be great.

Hello, you are not the firstperson to complain about this. I tried to replicate the issue,without success. Here what i am doing: connect a keyboard to to Rpi. Go to attract mode menu icon and enter. Then go to "reset controllers" will open the emulation station. Set your controllers. Check if it works. If not, connect the pi to the same network as your computer. open windows explorer and type //retropie. Open configs then open /all go to emulation station and delete the /tmp folder,then recreate that folder,and try redo the process. In case that didnt work try to open a game and see in the botton left of the screen,in yellow, what type of controller is recognized (the name) and tell me, please.

Another thing. If you are not using GPIO controllers, disable them in "Attract Mode" menu icon, then "Retropie", Then "Manage Packages",then "Manage Drivers Packages", then remove the mkarcade driver.

I should note, using raspberry pi 3b+ and 32 GB sad card.  I did run through and configure the controls each time I attempted, once I jumped into any game they stopped working.  Also ran the reset file permissions option to ensure not an ownership thing.

Connect the pi to the same network as your computer. open windows explorer and type //retropie.

Important to note that forthe image take the whole sdcard you must go to "Attract Mode" menu ,then to "Raspberry Pi", then to Advanced options,then "Expand Filesystem"

If none of this works, try to read the yellow information that shows in the bottom left of the screen (name of the controller recognized), and tell me here. If it works, tell me what you did.

Can’t find where Windows is blocking a connect, downloaded winscp to connect, can’t find folders, what path from the root.

I did do the expand file system as you mentioned.
