I listened to all the feedback from the first one and made a lot of changes to the second release. This time I wanted to focus on all the systems your more likely going to play vs the complicated older systems that didn't work that well (primarily Commodore/X81/).

Removed clutter & games that weren't working, and organized the games better. Also I pishrunk the image from 238 gigs down to 222 gigs so that every 256 gig card should work now!

**You can scrape game manuals now!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Improvements:

*This version no longer shows a error message each time you start a game.
*HDMI is much improved, so you can restart and the game menu comes up.
*Extra space on the microSD so that more cards will work with this image.
*Updated BIOS for different systems if you wanted to add your own system.
*PDF support added (you can scrape your favorite game manuals)
*Batocera manual, and game manuals. Press the option button to view game manuals!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Help:

*If Wifi isn't working try plugging directly into your router to help wake up the wifi and it should work. 

* To change your time follow this guide: https://wiki.batocera.org/timezone#:~:text=Starting%20with%20Batocera%2031%2C%20you,hour%20format%20if%20you%20want.

*If your having trouble getting a bluetooth controller working: https://wiki.batocera.org/bluetooth_controllers_-_manual_setup

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bonus:

* There is a comics folder if you SSH into the PI (default login/pass root/linux *I recommend changing the default password so you don't get hacked) Recommend FILEZILLA for SSH https://filezilla-project.org/

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final thoughts:

*Tested on Pi 4gb/8gb & someone mentioned it worked on pi 400 haven't personally tested.

*If a  game doesn't work well, make a list of games you come across, so that future releases can be improved. Many of the systems were fixed like Amiga 1200, Amiga CD32, Sega CD, NEO-GEO CD by converting from bin/cue/iso to chds

*Retro Pirate Box 1 will no longer be seeded as this one is much better and has pretty much everything the first one had. I encourage everyone to try to make a better version using my base/bios/roms and let me know if you do. I am not great when it comes to getting MAME, MUGEN, SCUMMVM, or that new HALF-LIFE mod emulator running. So if anyone can figure that out that would be cool!

*I noticed one mistake where there were a couple duplicates in the NDS folder, so if you SSH its just about 2 dozen games that are duplicates that can easily be cleaned up if you have OCD like me. So the official NDS count is 290. Basically delete the (U) and leave the (E) version. To fix this mistake would of taken me all day of copying back and forth and didn't want to delay this release.

I wanted to make an expansion pack to this release to pump up the total games for the Turbografx CD. So I am currently working on a top 50 Turbografx CD release. Once its done I will post a separate thread and a link to the torrent in this post here.

You can scrape videos for games. I am not sure about splash screens though. I would check the Batocera forums https://batocera.org/

No idea why that would happen. I've been using my setup for awhile.  You may want to post this problem to the Pi Batocera forums to see if anyone has a good idea why this would happen. Maybe also try burning the image with a different burner like Raspberrry official, or etcher, or win32 disk imager. https://forum.batocera.org/t/raspberry-pi-4

You can also try plugging it directly into your pc and going into the config file and looking at some of the audio/hdmi settings to see if you change anything if that will fix it for you.

Hello there!

Thank you hipp0 for the great work. 
I've installed your image in my RasPi 4 8gb flawlessly, but after getting in the boot (incredibly fast, btw) I've wanted to set up the controller.

Edit:

Ok, thanks to this page in Batocera's web, I've figured it out, so I let my post as a info, for all the people with XBOne controllers:
