You’re amazing. Honestly man, just a 128GB image that goes as high as possible for emulation, system wise. I’m not picky at this point haha.

I know there’s more of us out there that bought this and can’t download any images.

OK, downloading this one now: https://www.arcadepunks.com/raspberry-pi-multi-monitor-support-marquee-loaded-image/
It supports emulationstation, attract mode, dual monitors for marquee support and has a great selection across many supported systems for a 128GB image. Hopefully you’ll like this one.

If I can get it done by the end of tomorrow I’ll post the link here. Otherwise, it won’t be until Monday or Tuesday due to the holiday (my gear is all at my office).

I did do an update of the firmware. I even watched multiple videos to make sure I did it correctly. It will not update any higher at this point and says I have the newest versions. I am still getting the same messages. I have a lot of cards with images of many retro emulators and this is the only one I have a problem getting to work. I am going to give up on this image for now. I wish it did work correctly for me, I was looking for a setup for just all Commodore.

For those just tuning in, the above link is for the 128GB version of this image: https://www.arcadepunks.com/raspberry-pi-multi-monitor-support-marquee-loaded-image/
It has had both retropie and the underlying OS fully updated so it is now compatible with the new Pi 400.

I will host it as long as I can, maybe a month or two at best.

Enjoy.

Are you using the one the original poster updated for Pi 4 or are you trying to use the one I shared here as well that is FULLY updated and therefore compatible with both Pi 4 and Pi 400? I know it’s a lot to download, but if using the original Pi 4 re-release, perhaps try mine that added Pi 400 support if for no other reason then the fact that the underlying OS upgrade I did to it replaces all of those start and elf files with updated versions.

All I did was take your Pi4 updated image and pop it in to my Pi4, dropped immediately to command prompt (to avoid the controller setup in ES) and ran ‘retropie_setup.sh’ and chose the ‘update’ option and said ‘yes’ to updating the underlying OS. (both the OS and retropie had patches added recently which are necessary to support the Pi400. Just updating OS gets it to boot but keyboard input won’t work in retropie without updating retropie as well.)

booted it in the Pi400 to make sure I didn’t break it and dropped right to command prompt again (to avoid the controller setup in ES) and did a ‘sudo poweroff’.

Made a new .img file from the sd card and used pi-shrink to reduce the image size and compress it.

Dropped it on my google drive and linked it here.

I’m totally fine with it being submitted to the appropriate people to get properly hosted but I’m not ‘in the know’ on how to do that myself, nor do I care about getting any kind of credit for others hard work. All I did was update it…

feel free to pass it to whomever to get hosted if you’re comfortable with that.

Hi all. Just wanted to help out anyone who may have a Pi 400 but not a Pi 4 to update the image with. This is a google drive download link for my PiShrunk image after doing a full retropie update (including underlying OS). Nothing was added or removed otherwise aside from me configuring my keyboard and an xbox360 usb controller. Hope this helps someone out. The download is ~13.7GB and is an .img.gz file so it can be burned to SD card from apps like etcher without needing to decompress it first.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fxxpuEALWSs_xsjUOHu1pgmHh1PtkEAU/view?usp=sharing  

Just tried this in my PI 400 and it works ok apart from the Commodore 128 games in 80 column mode. No big deal I suppose. Thanks for this!

I have the same issue here. Firmware of RPi 4B updated to the latest stable (3rd September one) and it won’t boot.

Thank you so much for this. I snagged a Pi 400 last week specifically as a ‘retro-computer’ Pi, running Pimiga on it as we speak. I can’t wait to try out this image!

Dude & hrabia

Any chance it’s just a bad/crappy SD card or The program you’re using to burn the image?

My recommended Windows raw image burning tools (from best to “just ok”):
Win32DiskImager
USB Image Tool
BalenaEtcher (NOT the old etcher)

Perhaps – even if just for testing – try using a USB flash drive or hard drive to burn the image to and see if it boots for you. Be sure to use a Blue USB 3.0 port.

SD card seems to be fine. It’s a new one I’ve just purchased. It works fine on other distros (RasberryPi OS, DietPi). I have used BalenaEtcher to burn the image.

To check what may be wrong I copied all the /boot partition binary files from RaspberryPi OS to the card burned using your image – now it seems to boot but had no time to look deeper (I have 4k monitor and RaspberryPi OS seems to have problems with it – I need to test it connected to my TV).

One more thing that may be important here (but I don’t see the point why 🙂 ). I have My RPi4 in ArgonOne M.2 case (without SSD drive yet). Maybe on weekend I will try to disassemble the case and try booting on raw RPi4? Also I will try to burn your image on some USB stick. We will see.

Anyway, booting or not – thanks for your great work!

I’ve downloaded RPi400 version of the image and it works. Using the same SD card of course. So it looks like torrent version has some issues with 8GB RPi together with specific firmware.

Many thanks esmith13, your Pi400 version works perfectly !
I just found an issue when launching Xenon 2 megablast on amiga (the one will full intro and music).
As soon as the intro finishes, the game crashes systematically with following error :

Exception “Line 1111 emulator” ($E02C)
at $4EF996B6 occured.

Can someone confirm if you have the same issue ? or not ? I tried to look for how to resolve this but could not really understand how, I am not a technical expert, so any help is welcome 🙂

Thanks !

Hi. 

Thank you so much for your time on this. I’m completely new to the pi400. Very interested in this commodore image. The original image didn’t boot on the pi400, as you know. Very impressed with your image. This now boots on my pi400. However, whenever I open a system and see the games list, this whole thing freezes with the background audio skipping. Any ideas please? Really wanted this to work… Thanks in advance.

After much use, this image is useless for anything other than the Amiga. Only the Amiga 500 and Amiga 1200 (with a bit of tweaking) emulators work properly. The CD32 has no CD music and all the other Commodore machines (C128, C16, Plus 4, Vic20) don’t load any games.
