Right fixed the coin and player buttons so now work from my Xbox wired controllers. Also changed escape so I can exit with controllers
It was only mame that was pain in ass FBA and other emulators were all fine.

I followed this video by Floob who is a member


Button config is in a different place to the video but followed the same theory. Unlike when you map a keyboard key, make sure you hold down the buttons on the controller till it picks it up.

One thing fixed...

Just tested with Gauntet with 3 wired controllers and coins for each and player start all worked perfectly.

Yipeeeeeeeeee

Right fixed audio being to low to my TV and AMP.

Only noticed it as coule not work out why my amp had to go so high to hear anything !!

Set to use HDMi instead of AUTO  in the GUI and bumped up the gui to 100% rather than 76%
Mame runs at -3db which is fine as that seems to be set per game.


TBH videos are nice but interested to see if I could get the 128gb reys  image down to a 64gb image for Recalbox instead.

Takes some compromises but to be honest I dont really want to play old Atari 2800 games, N64 games or any hand hold console on my TV ! If you take away Tony hawkes and GTA from the playstation and then you delete the snap folders and the wheel folders , you get to 60gb (I should think recalbox is less than 4gb ??)

I have managed to get to a 60 gb image thats having all the Zips and the box art which are *.png not *.jpg). Recalbox downloads  JPG's so not sure if its a simple rename and copy ????

Anyway if you want to get down to a 64gb card, I have gone for these emulators which have the same romsets as the original reys image minus the systems like MSX etc which I have no interest in.

Has anyone got VPN working on recalbox not having much look on recalbox or reys image. I think as these are not pure openelec.

Hi guys

I just installed one of 2huwmans MiniKab Pi setups.

Its running Advancemame, with Arpicade frontend.

Having trouble with Tempest, Robotron, Defender ...and some others .... its like the they are booting but then the graphics are all compressed into a tight window with horizontal slanting lines ???? And with this I can't bring up the MAME menu to tinker.

Anyone experienced the same or have  advice ??
Cheers

If anyone has a handy hint where a mame 0.167 set is without using paradise etc please PM me

Different romsets in reys to wht RECALbox uses.

I have a fullmame 0.78 but fba needs 0.167 :(

Cant find anywhere not even retroburner !!

Quick before admins remove my post !!!

Recalbox (v3.3.0-b15 to v4.0.3)

_Recalbox (since v.4.1.0 unstable)

  • It uses the FBA romset version : FBA 0.2.97.39 which is based on MAME 0.175 (June 2016)

Has anyone got the GAMELIST.XML  in the mame folder on recalbox please when they scanned all the 078 roms ?

Now MameDB is down I cannot get a decent scrape. Fastscraper on PC does not name them right on the screen and Gamedb is useless for mame roms.

The reason I ask is I have recut my 078 pack to just the tested working roms thats about 1000 roms, rather than my orignal cut of 280.

I've got a complete set of  downloaded images  -image.jpg

I just need the XML if anybody did a scrape in recalbox using mamedb  when it was working ?

As at moment it has not got all the zip files details right.

10 yard fight has become final fight  !!!!!

Could do with  gamelist.XML for liberto FBA too, but thats probably pushing it !!

Thanks in advance 

Daz

Do you have any information on how to obtain an image of this setup or general information on how to setup a pi for 3/4 player games?  I really want to get my Pi setup for this with all the 3/4 player MAME games on one setup and setup for multiplayer simultaneous play on my arcade cabinet.  I also have Reys image - any way to convert or make this work for 3/4 player games?  Any information on how to get a Pi setup to play all the 3/4 player arcade games would be appreciated.  I am hoping someone would take this on as a project and provide an image at some point.  Thanks.

Ive ripped FBA games out of reys image and then created a dual boot librelec (kodi) and recalbox.
Then simply altered the config file to 3 players  and told it I am using an xbox controller.

For pi  with jamma  connection I'd just buy a set up of 2human instead.

I've not tested all the 3p 4p yet but Xmen, simpsons, turtles and gauntlet have been perfect.

How does the Pi 3 do with CPS3 emulation? I mean there's only 3rd Strike I'd want but it is amazing!

Does Mame or whatever even do CPS3 actually?

Yes use FBA_liberto folder  for that stuff and a pi3.

You can see real gameplay on youtube.

Remember CPS3 only had a few games anyway.


I have found 75% of the 3p/4p games do exist in FBA. Either Alien Storm has really weird sound or I need to try that in mame instead !!

Also alien vs predator I have in FBA is all just 2 player.


Played the armoured game last night, massive sprites and repetitive as hell, but kids enjoyed playing together.


The list of 3 players comes down to ten  really nice working nice ones, just adding the 4 players in.
