The mkarcade driver is enabled. You can disable in retropie > drivers

 

Made the image in 2 flavours: brazilian and international. The brazilian image comes with translated roms and hacks. The international version has only the original roms.

DOWNLOAD @Â https://www.arcadepunks.com/26.....perspin-2/

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.....l-package/

To download the arts, I recommend the torrent from the Hyperpie Project: https://files.hyperpie.appboxe.....on.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/projec.....iskimager/

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.

PS: The first version you can find in: https://www.arcadepunks.com/ar.....-32-gb-sd/

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.

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.

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.

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)

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: "> 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: "> . 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: "> . 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

You should download the torrent pack from hyperpie:https://files.hyperpie.appboxe.....on.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.

What is your controller? Its bluetooth or usb. what methods did you use to try to configure the controller?

Dont use the reset script, it is bugged. Try the following methods:

Replace the reset script for this one:
