Retropie CRT Edition - Raspberry pi 2B/3B/3B+ - TV 15Khz (vga666 / pi2scart / rgb-pi)

Redemp escribió:The catver.ini as mentionen here Updating catver.ini and other metadata #759
has since long been out of date and in need of an update.

Several weeks ago i finally started the long and tedious process of categorizing 4920 games and updating it to Mame 0.221 standards.

An hour here, 15 minutes there and so on. It's finally complete.
This was something i wanted to do for a long time.
Well i hope you all like it.

mame2003-plus catver.ini based upon mame 0.221 catver


Thanks again Redemp, as you said, prepare this files usually are a tedious task.
In regard on previous repository, I think I will be able to give compatibility to some additional system like ones asked by @jimiz. This probably will take long because it's necessary to prepare so much things among other, themes and integration with the launching system.

I have almost ready new release of Retropie CRT Edition v2.0 with a lot of changes:
  • New image from the scratch based on Retropie 4.6 (buster) (still only compatible until Raspberry pi 3b+)
  • New configuration utility, consolidating all previous utilities like usb automount and cable selector and... other surprises... :)
  • Configuration utility is now full available from TATE mode and image center utility is full adapted to the same.
  • Lot of changes for optimizing and cleaning.

Excelente noticia @-krahs- ,esperando esa nueva versión para echarle un ojo .
salu2 y gracias
Great, I'm using crt-pi at the moment but am quite unsatisfied w/ their support. I like retropie but, I'm always confused with the different resolutions going on...

Could someone clear out the differences between rgbpi and retropie crt for me?
Buenas!
Estoy buscando alguna manera de modificar el Front-end, personalizarlo a mi gusto en plan fotos de un familia.
Unificar todos los juegos en una sola carpeta.

Estoy familiarizado con los ficheros gamelist.xml
Pero no sé dónde cambiar las formas de los menús, listado.

Me gustaría saber si hay algún manual o ejemplo de donde están los ficheros para poder customizarlo.

Funciona de maravilla con VGA666.
Por 10€ ponerlo en una tele es espectacular!

Muchas gracias!
Ya está disponible la nueva versión de Retropie CRT Edition EVO 2.0.

@-krahs-

Great! Can't wait to trying this out when i get back from vacation!
@-krahs-

¡Gracias, probé la interfaz y es fantástica! un muy buen trabajo!

Por desgracia, me he encontrado con un par de problemas realmente molestos:

I) ¡los juegos irem, incluso forzando la resolución, tienen una amplitud vertical demasiado grande! Esto no sucedió con el modo 270.

II) Noté una caída aterradora en el rendimiento, los titoiles cps3 (como street fighter) tienen un marco bastante pesado, no sé si se debe a la nueva versión de retropie o a la resolución impuesta



Espero que pueda ayudar, ¡esta edición se está volviendo cada vez más sublime!

¡Gracias de nuevo!

PD Probé todo en un Samsung 28 "CRT a 50Hz. Si lo desea, puedo volver a probar todo con un trinitron 21" ;)
Primero dar las gracias al creador y a todos los que dan soporte de esta maravilla. Ayer puede probar la version 2.0 y a falta de probar muchos sistemas ya que eran altas horas de la madrugada, solo tengo una pega, me sigue pasando lo del interfaz Xon-mi creo que se llama el que tengo, solo me reconoce un jugador, dentro de configuración activo el fix para dos jugadores, reinicio pero no hace nada, sigue solo la opción de manera el primer jugador, no se si algo no hago bien o que.
De todos modos existia la opción de arreglarlo manualmente por si no doy con la tecla.

Por el resto que he podido probar es una maravilla como luce, lo bien que va la Sharp X680000 y el Amiga. Impresionante.

Una duda que tengo ahora mismo, tengo una colección de mapeos para juegos de CPC Y ZX, donde tendría que ponerlos dentro del sistema para que los reconociera sin problema? Entiendo que dentro de config y remap??

Hola.
Del Xin-Mo parece que hay dos versiones, la "oficial" y el Juyao Dual Arcade que es basicamente lo mismo pero cambia el vendor ID.
El fix a aplicar es practicamente el mismo pero cambia parte de la configuración, esto está documentado en Retropie.

Para tu caso, desactiva el fix bajo la herramienta de Configuration Utility, reinicia y apaga la raspberry. Accede a la tarjeta SD (por comodidad puedes pincharla a un equipo con windows), edita el fichero cmdline.txt y añade al final de la línea usbhid.quirks=0x0314:0x0328:0x040.

En cuanto a los remaps, puedes copiar la carpeta que tenías ya configurada dentro de la carpeta del sistema correspondiente en configs. Retropie te los debería cargar automáticamente.

Gracias por las pruebas :-)
Muchas gracias, lo hago y te digo.

En cuanto a los remapeos creo que no hay problema. Para lo del mando no hay manera, te mando el cmdline

console=serial0,115200 console=tty3 root=PARTUUID=97a6378b-02 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait loglevel=3 consoleblank=0 plymouth.enable=0 logo.nologo usbhid.quirks=0x0314:0x0328:0x040

Solo me lo reconoce como 1 gamepad, concretamente gamepad 3.


Si borro la linea agregada, me lo vuelve a reconocer como gamepad 1. (3H DUAL ARCADE)

Averigua el vendor/product ID del dispositivo con lsusb y modificalo en la línea de configuración:

usbhid.quirks=0x[vendor]:0x[product]:0x040
Ok, perfecto.

Ya esta solucionado!!!!

Donde me recomiendas poner el pack de arcade?? Lo tengo dividido en horizontales y verticales pero para un monitor Hantarex en horizontal.

Me alegro XD
La ubicación dependerá un poco del romset que tengas, la carpeta arcade esta pensada para poder usar diferentes emuladores, no solo mame y poder elegir por rom... podrías tener un mix de romset y controlar que emulador quieres para cada rom... en mi opinion es un poco caos.
Yo suelo usar dos romset para horizontales, el correspondiente a mame2003 (emulados con mame2003-plus) en la carpeta mame-libretro, y el de advmame en mame-advmame.

Lo mismo para verticales pero en las carpetas mame_tate y advmame_tate....
Gracias, he hecho lo mismo que tu, como tengo los dos romset los he puesto en esos directorios, y otro romset de Best of best los he puesto en arcade para cuando no quiera buscar mucho.

Por otro lado los remaps, los he copiado en las carpetas correspondientes pero no los carga automáticamente por cada juego, tengo que entrar en retroarch y elegir el remap correspondiente a cada juego. Hay alguna manera de hacerlo automáticamente? Alguna opción en retroarch o en el cfg que pueda tocar?

Gracias.
Why remove 270p support? Emulationstation looked much nicer and the retropie setup menus were readible, now in 240p they are too wide and half the text is off the screen. I think you should keep 270p as an option, it looks much nicer on my TV, if one prefers 240p they could choose to use it. Please bring back 270p.

Also I just noticed some MAME games aren't working loke the Mortal Kombat series just shows a black screen when it was working in the previous version.

Hi.
Can you attach a picture of how is looking EmulationStation in your TV and also of the center utility? Configs menus are not so readable than in 270p but enough. Text don't should be out of the screen, maybe you need to adjust the image on your tv to fit on the screen.

270p is not going to come back.

Mortal Kombat is working as usual...
Emulationstation is working OK, even though text looks much bigger the issue are the retropie setup screen are too large to know what's going on.
As you can see on Retropie setup screens in 270p I can read the whole text while in 240p half the text is off screen:

Also on version 1.1 Mortal Kombat 2 loads perfectly on 2.0 it loads to a black screen and stays that way until I exit the game, I'm using the same rom hard drive on both cases so it's not a rom problem:

One problem though - I wanted to enter my WiFi info, but my password uses the @ symbol, and it is not available in the onscreen keyboard. I tried plugging in a physical keyboard but it does not work.

Please, can you add @ to the available characters?

Hi t0nito.
For me is working perfectly fine even I've checked the resolutions that are applied whether CROPPED or FORCED modes and are exactly the same in EVO 1.1 than EVO 2.0 so there is no any kind of problem with that.
I've realized accordingly to your videos that you have power issues in your instalation (yellow lightning bolt on top right corner) so i suggest to you to change as soon as possible your current power suppy and try to get one able to give at least 3A, specially if you are using some USB external devices like an external hard disk and multiple joysticks.

This, combined with some other changes that you could have applied like CPU gobernor or overclocking could explain the problem.

What i can ensure is there is no problem with resolutions.

Ok, I have already ordered a new power supply almost two months ago but it hasn't arrived yet, I'll try it when it finally arrives, in the meantime I guess I'll have to stick with version 1.1.
Really thanks -krahs- ! super update 2.0 and hope come soon more systems...

One question , IS possible do the update directly (total including cores etc ..) to 2.0 directly from the bartop by wirless or am I obliged to rewrite the image from the beginning with the newimage file 2.0 on my sd card?
I ask because I have everything on a 128 GB SD, and I feel bad if I have to put all the roms and media back ...
because I must first transfer everything to PC, then via linux system put the dozens of GB of roms back on the sd ... for hours of transfer.
before proceeding I ask ....

thanks again.

thanks again.

I was using everything from 128Gb mSD also, but it is a lot of trouble IMO.

I have now started using all roms and isos from USB stick instead (just turn on USB storage in the CRT utility), and it's MUCH easier to now to add roms and stuff, and you will less chance of corrupting your system card.

One note - if you do start using USB storage, be sure to have the PS1 BIOS file SCPH1001.BIN present in BIOS folder or PS1 games will not run at good speeds.
Thanks .... right! I understand, the usb is a valid alternative but given the size (my roms / media) perhaps wiser and more convenient a good ssd (usb) hardisk ... (if it works)

however my main question is whether you can do a (complete) update from 1.1> 2.0 directly from the menu in operation (via wifi), without having to rewrite the SD image from scratch ....
Great release! Thank you for your great job!

I have a question for both versions, is it possible to know the shell command to change the setting related to the connection hardware (RGB-PI, Pi2scart..ecc..)? Because I don't see any image on my new cabinet thus I cannot choose the hardware...(I have a jamma-RGB-PI compatible board), if there is a CLI command I will be able to do it via ssh.

Please let me know...

Thanks!
Is there any Pi to Scart type adapter yet for rPi 4?

They have some cool stuff running on Pi 4 now, like Dreamcast and Naomi arcade games... [sonrisa]
already with the pi3 some dreamcast games are playable, as well as some of the psp ...
for example crazy tahy and virtual tennis, which are 2 very famous coinops, on the pi3 they let themselves be played enough (even if a little jerky) .... you have to wait for a version to be released that finally opens the doors to all these systems. [beer]

Questions

How update to 2.0 without rewrite the image (and roms too) to SD ?

Is there a complete list of all the emulators / systems supported in version 2.0 (first page not udpate) ?
2.0 added only x68000 or something else (for example vic 20 etc ...)?

thank you
Some questions:

1) Where do I put samples for FinalBurn?

2) If I use the video screen saver, where do I put the video files? What folder?

I tried making a video folder on my usb stick but it doesn't see the videos there.

Thanks.
WITH THIS CRT EVO in any mame/advmame...no vector games work!!!!

asteroids, asteroids deluxe, tempest, ecc...
Commodore 64 - fire button on joystick input does not respond, only up/down/left/right
please can anyone check if, with version 2.00, irem games like r-type are seen well? unfortunately it is a problem that I have encountered with all releases in 240p mode.

there is also a noticeable drop in performance on cps3 games. thank you all
Hi,
I tried the 2.0 image, much better menu integration, good work.
I copied my old bios and rom folder from the previous backup and also some config files from config folder for the emulators core I use (mame libretro and fba) and fba tate and mame tate no longer rotate, now I have vertical games on a horizontal screen.
How can I launch the vertical game on a rotated vertical (full) screen?
Hola!
Me Funciona bien reteopie.crt edición?en una pi 3 a+? Es la misma que la pi3b pero con 512 megas de ram,

Gracias!
Pregunta: Me he hecho con el cable Jamma RGB pie para probar que tal va, mi idea era probar mi imagen ya hecha con el ultimo CRT edition pero claro la tenia hecha para VGA666, hay alguna opción en la SD desde linux o algo para poder entrar y cambiarle el modo de imagen para interfaz RGB-pi???

He probado a volcar el programa en otra SD y al elegir en el arranque que tipo de interfaz tengo selecciono RGBpi y funciona, pero como en mi otra SD ya lo tenia todo preparado, ROMs, bios, remaps y demas me gustaría saber si hay posibilidad de usarla cambiando el arranque...

Muchas gracias.


Edito: Acabo de ver que se puede hacer desde el mismo menu, y aunque se vea mal el menu al tener elegido vga666 creo que puedo entrar y cambiarlo. Voy a ello.

Edito2: El tema de la imagen ya bien, pero los controles no me deja mapear, seguiré indagando.
@jdeacon No crees que es mejor usar el propio sistema operativo que se ha currado el equipo del jamma-pi?pero al menos lo has probado? ;)
En primer lugar, gracias por la nueva versión, enhorabuena!
Gracias por este currazo espectacular.
Ahora la pregunta (seguro que la han hecho muchas veces, pero yo no la encuentro):
¿Para cuándo Pi 4? Aprovechar esa potencia extra será brutal en muchos emus.

Lo dicho, gracias!
@Joe Musashi Hola, claro es lo primero que hice ayer, hoy quería probar si este programa también funcionaba y probar cosas.
Pierdo mas tiempo trasteando que jugando. Por cierto el RGB-Pi Jamma de lujo para quien no quiera complicarse la vida.

En los dos sistemas me sale recortado la imagen del Amiga y me tiene mosqueado, al menos en Puae, en amiberry va la imagen centrada me tiene mosqueado a ver si puedo ponerlo en alguno de los dos sistemas y ya tengo todo lo que quiero para al final no jugar.
alguien probo la rpi 3 a?

Haber si no se queda corto estos 512 megas...

@ziu
mi idea es no cargar mas de 100mb de ningun juego, mas ram no es mas potensia.

voy a pedir una en ali, son 25€cus

HI

no mame vector game arcade work with this retropie crt

like asteroid, ast.deluxe, battlezone, tempest and many more...

sure resolution problems because (roms are ok) not give any possibility to change emu...3-4 seconds black screen and again on list menu!

PLEASE FIX SOLUTION...... those games are coinops history!!!
@claudiazan

There is an small bug I'll fix for the next release.
In the meantime you can fix it easily:
1) Edit file /opt/retropie/configs/all/CRT/bin/GeneralModule/launcher_module/screen.py
2) In line 305 change "return DEFAULT_RE" to "return DEFAULT_RES"
Tengo un par de dudas y voy a escribir en este hilo, si me salgo del tema o es redundante, por favor decidme y abro hilo a parte.

Hace unos años tuve un setup CRT con la raspa usando las indicaciones de un hilo viejo de Tomax_Payne, y acabé por desmontarlo tras una mudanza, pero conservo el cable de retrocables VGA a SCART. Me voy a pillar el VGA666 y si consigo una buena experiencia sin perder mucho tiempo, pillaré otra raspa para tenerla montada en CRT además de la de la tele moderna principal. No tengo mucha idea de linux y ninguna de programación, lo justito para modificar cosas básicas en retropie siguiendo indicaciones, y el usar una imagen sencilla y user friendly es un plus.

Entonces, si conecto el minijack a un adaptador HDMI, puedo sacar el audio del puerto HDMI de la raspa en vez de del puerto de 3.5mm, y en ese caso, tendría mejor sonido?
Teniendo en cuenta que la tele a la que tengo acceso es una Trinitron de consumo y no un monitor arcade o pro, realmente notaría diferencia de calidad de imagen respecto a usar RGPpi o pi2SCART, o me vale con el VGA666?
Me imagino que la mayoría de los que tenéis estos setups no usáis ventilador para la placa al tener el GPIO ocupado, realmente merece la pena preocuparse por buscar soluciones para refrigerar o aguanta bien de temperatura (sin OC, claro)?

Thx!
