Theres no doubt about it , the 1tb Rpi4 RETROMANIA build for SSD drives from Wolfanoz is an absolute beast – the release article states loads of helpful information as well as guides and such, and lots of people messaging to say they got it up and running problem free – read the original article its worth it! A “FINAL EDITION” version has started to leak out in other places, and before you think you should go downloading almost a terabyte of data (Again) – you don’t have to do so, its very minor changes (which includes the original fix) as well as a couple of extra arcade ROMs and media, and a fix for the GameBoy Hacks/Game Boy. How does less than 60mb in under a minute of instigation and less than a couple minutes downloading sound?
IF YOU DONT ALREADY HAVE THE IMAGE
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THE IMAGE
If you already have the image, then just like the first time round you need to connect to the internet once again and then reboot, then exit emulationstation to the “command prompt” then follow the video (instructions and text below)
- If you haven’t already then EXIT EMULATIONSTATION (Press start and choose QUIT)
- login with username pi and password raspberry
sudo wget -O – http://punkwhore.com/wolf.sh | bash
- When it is done it will give you a message and then reboot
Thats it, you are now all updated to THE FINAL EDITION.
FINAL EDITION DIFFERENCE FROM ORIGINAL
1) Add the two missing games to Arcade (Marvel Super Heroes and SF2: Championship edition) as well as all the scraped media for it
2) Update your es_systems.cfg file to remove the duplicate platforms
3) Fix the Game Boy Hacks config folder to use the right emulator to be able to be used
4) Apply the bash fix
There’s also a full update as well for the media stuff, Vulkan in the Supreme Toolkit (and any future fixes) but those are all still current as of this update.
Notes: If you’re using wireless controllers, and getting Bluetooth errors, go into Retropie Setup, Manage Packages, Manage Drivers and turn on the drivers for your respective controller brand (Sony, Microsoft, etc), reboot and try setting them up again. Personally use a PS3 wired controller with no issues as the xpad driver usually handles most controllers. These drivers (other than xpad) are turned off to avoid conflict with one another.
