This has just dropped on the mat, Crash declaring AN UNTESTED first PI4 base image for Rasbian Buster (no roms included!)…
RetroPie Buster Base image.
On paper this image “should” work on the Pi Zero to the new Pi4.
You will need to do a couple of things. Go into raspi-config in the terminal “sudo raspi-config” no quotes. Expand the system, don’t reboot yet. Go to network change host name to “retropie” no quotes. Set your WiFi country, change your memory split (it is set for pi Zero to at least boot) new pi4 memory split 1024?
6gb download, 16gb image (smallest card I had and didn’t shrink it)
Host name: raspberrypi
Notes: I noticed mupen64plus did not install, this will need to be fixed upstream. Lr-mupen64plus did install, this will be a good test to see how well the pi4 can run N64.
No bios or roms, basic install. No controllers have touched this image you might need to install drivers.
If you you want to thank me swing by my YouTube channel and sub. I’ll be under the hood on this for a bit.
Image makers: if you want to use this to make an image, just credit where you got the base.
Users: let me know what does and doesn’t work on this image, I’ll take a look.
