Raspberry Pi Hyperspin - attract mode - 32GB - Version 2 (bigger and better)

12

o access that folder go to AttractMode menu and go to "Show ip address". then in your computer go to windows explorer and type (attention with the dash) \\(your-ip-number) Should open 4 folders. But befor, lets try another thing: Go to attractmodemenu, then go to retropie, then go to "configuration/tool", then go to"emulationstation ..." Check if "autoconfiguration is enabled" and select "clear/reset input". Dont forget to tell me what shows in the bottom left of the screen when you select a game.

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.

FOUND THE ISSUE: Once you click in reset controllers and go to emulationstation, after set your controllers DONT LEAVE EMULATIONSTATION, start any game, to force retroarch record your new controller. Just after that leave the emulationstation. The controllers will work)

I made a few tutorials addressing the most commom issues with the system: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSRDGWyRFqwj-VP_-U810ggS5N-YyaJrD

Hello SergioHyperSpin,

so I followed your tutorials, but I’ve that there’s layers to the joystick function in your mod.

i brought some LED buttons, thus ‘Dragon Geneics’ comes up when I map the buttons.

First, mapping those buttons in EmulationStation aids in being able to function only the EmulationStation layout.

second, mapping the buttons in the main loaded section, aids in just navigating the game menus.

thus, once I select a game, the LED buttons, not joysticks don’t work. Not in the arcade games nor old school consoles.

how I got some of the buttons to work was grabbing the configurations files from my old raspiberry pie and FTP them to the correct locations.

however, when I am in an arcade game and I try to remap buttons to a specific game, it will ruin all the other working control configurations in everything.

 

thus I’m lost on this, about to get up and reflash back to regular RetroPie & EmulationStation

Hi. Let's recap to try to understand. You configure your controller, but isnot working in games, is that correct?

Let me explain what i know about the system. The retropie is originally design to run emulationstation on top of retroarch. So, when you configure a controller in emulationstation, in theory it should  work in both retroarch emulators (those who start with lr- ) and emulationstation. Attractmode is another  frontend, totally apart from the system, so you have to manually configure in order to navigate in the menus.

First, If you are not using the GPIO controllers (the ones connected directly to the board pins) follow that tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_e0gO9Dmyw to uninstall them, otherwise the system will recognize the first 2 players as the gpio controllers.

Since my image is not clean i implemented a script to erase previous controller config from EmulationStation, but I a discovered a bug in the "reset controllers" shortcut, that dont allow to save the config in retroarch as well. So you must do it the longer way, explained in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=413gCWrZALE . Basically you go to the Retropie link, tools, emulationstation e choose to reset input, then you go out of that menu, and click in the emulationstation link,configure the controller and enter in any game. Doing that should appear in the bottom left,in yellow   <name of your controller> configured. If appearsnot configured, means that the configuration of the ES could not be repeated in retroarch.

In that case you should do this method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sIl-vlD9x8 . Just skip the bluetooth pairing. Basically you will go to Retroarch link, settings, input, player 1, and put the keys. If you select bind all the system will help you do it faster. Save the config, go back 1 screen go to hotkeys and bind the hotkeys you want. Go back to player 1 and save again the config.

Try this and give me a feedback

Okay,

I followed your steps and everything is working.

thank you.

Quick question,

I added more ROMs to each system. How do I scrape for the new games images?

You should download the torrent pack from hyperpie:https://files.hyperpie.appboxes.co/HyperPie-v2-Media_Pi_Version.torrent

select the systems you want. This packs come with the full art ( cart, box, wheel, snap). Then just make sure that the rom has the exact name of the of the art and video.
