You may remember DMCs recent 16gb SNES V3 Image at 16gb based on the MLP release, well this time he has come back with serious modifications and at double the punching power (32gb).
-Ryan J Officer from Mad Little Pixel Gaming Facebook group for the excellent new run/launch splashscreens
-Daimo’s Game Share YouTube for the SNES Classic intro/bootup video
-Drew Talks for the list of N64 games which are playable on the Pi
Additions from SNESv3 DMC 16GB image:
The following systems have been added;
-Game and Watch
-Game Boy Color
*Due to space constraints, only 100 games have been added, these were taken from Drew Talks list of N64 games which are playable on the Pi.
Everything else is as per the 16GB release notes below. Image is still Pi Zero / 2 / 3 compatible. Pi Zero users may wish to ditch the N64 collection though as they’re only just playable on the Pi 2 / 3
.Additions from MadLittlePixels SNESv2 base image:
The following have been added;
-Famicom Disk System
-Launch/run command splash screens added to all systems, along with bezels/overlays (also pre-installed are the launch screens and bezels/overlays for Game Boy and Virtual Boy)
<-Image is still cross compatible and usable with Pi Zero / 2 / 3
-Motionblue/Hyperspin ready roms added for Famicom, Famicom Disk System, NES, Super Famicom, and Super Nintendo (Wanting to keep this image kid friendly, I removed circa 30 adult content games from the Famicom Disk System)
-All systems scraped with the UXML scraper – any roms which did not scrape were moved to \roms\roms_which_wont_scrape\system_name\ so are still available should anyone wish to add them back in.
Artwork and video snaps can be found under \roms\system_name\downloaded_images\
System gamelist.xml can be found under \roms\system_name\gamelist.xml
Collections added for the Famicom, NES, Super Famicom and Super Nintendo Classics/Minis with the appropriate titles added to each collection.
Music folder relocated to \roms\music for ease
Since a lot of people are using Rons base image with the Retroflag NesPi case, I went ahead and pre-installed the James White power switch hack along with his fan control mod. These are disabled by default but can be enabled by editing rc.local and un-commenting (delete the hash) the required line.
Power switch hack option A – reset button exits the game back to emulation station menu
Power switch hack option B – reset button shuts down and restarts the Pi
On both options the power button will shut the Pi down before killing power.
Only one of the two options should be enabled.
Fan control mod – will govern the speed of the fan(s) determined via the temperature of the CPU – again, un-comment to enable it
ES graceful shutdown script to ensure game metadata is always saved is also installed but is disabled by default (see this link for notes on this script https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/12895/ensuring-es-gracefully-finish-and-save-metadata-in-every-system-shutdown) note that this will cause the system to take longer to shut down as the system will wait for this script to finish running before powering off
To enable, run the following command from putty;
sudo systemctl enable killes
Full credit to MLP for the base image, I just added a few things to it. – DMC
