Themes / Re: Add info in system Menu
« Last post by iOtero on Yesterday at 04:08:40 AM »
thanks. there is no solution. I could use images with text to be placed on the screen...

Between creating images or pasting a text in the penultimate ";" of the romlists I think there is a difference of work ...

But hey, everyone takes the solution that seems ...

General / Re: WII LINUX?
« Last post by hermine.potter on Yesterday at 02:46:53 AM »
It's necessary to start Hackmii, to install the Homebrew Channel this way:

a special game & a savegame exploit (old method; not longer necessary) or via wii pinboard exploit (letterbomb, bannerbomb, wilbrand) and WII MAC address.

there is a tool called UHG Downloader, to get the whole packet automatically (wii cios and so on).

After install homebrew channel, you are able to start homebrew like Wiiflow.

Wiiflow need a Plugin Packet.

Never tried to install linux directly

Yes it can be done. I have done it. You have to have the White WII with version 4.3..I think. There is a program that you get and put your MAC address into and then it does all the changes and sets it up for you you just have to install it.."Letter Bomb" I think it is.

Normally you use a flaw in a game to "hack it" (Softmod) but there is a stand alone exe out there somewhere..but i can't remember where..if i find it I'll post it here. It works great. I can play Atari2600 5200 7800 NES Snes SMS Sega Megadrive/Genisis and some MAME roms..on and Turbo graphics-16/PC Engine and DOSBox.

That is what I used before I had my PI. You need at least a 8GB SD card..it might handle a 16GB..I don't remember.

MY penny counted for something?!   :o

Does that mean Nintendo doesn't care about rom sites tomorrow either?   ;D

(glad I could help somebody out there!)

General / Sub menu collection Issue
« Last post by thazoot on August 12, 2018, 03:07:56 PM »
Hi,  I've create a 3-4 Players collection. When I add it in the main menu (with display option in configure menu) It works perferctly. But If I try to add it to a submenu (Arcades), I see it, menu arts work well, but nothing happens if I try to enter in this menu. Works only from the main menu. I added this line "3-4 Players;3-4 Players;@;;;;;;;;;0;;;;;" in the Arcades.txt romlist folder (In fact I just copied line "Arcade;Arcade;@;;;;;;;;;0;;;;;" and replace Arcade by 3-4 Players). txs.

General / Re: Retroarch and Attractmode. How?
« Last post by akafox on August 12, 2018, 02:53:40 PM »
First of all if you want help with that you need to understand how retroarch commands work. Go look at the retroarch wiki for that. That has nothing to do with Attract mode in a sense. I can make Attract Mode run like a Jukebox if i want to using a standard configuration for setting up a emulator.

And note that RetroArch is not a one stop solution to everything. There are many stand alone emulators that work MUCH better than any Retroarch core! Then again there are retroarch cores that run better than the emulator. It's trial and error plain and simple. Use what is best for you or what you like.

Below is your standard Retroach core config

executable           retroarch
args                 -L "path to libretro core"[romfilename]"

Example:

   Linux:
executable           retroarch
args                   -L /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libretro/nestopia_libretro.so "[romfilename]"

  Windows:
executable           retroarch
args                   -L C:\retroarch cores\nestopia_libretro.so "[romfilename]"

That will load the nestopia core (A Nintendo Entertainment System emulator) for NES games.

Retroarch is NOT an emulator. The cores are (in a sense). But the cores can not be called (run/started/executed) by themselves to run they must be called by retroarch first! Thus why the executable is ONLY Retroarch. Then the args line contains all the other needed info.

For this to work you have to have retroarch configured correctly FIRST! Thus you have to tell it where your cores are and BIOSes ect. Attract Mode will NOT do it for you!
