TheRA 3.0 Port (formerly RetroPie port)

Unread post by SlappyMcPhee » Wed Feb 20, 2019 3:45 pm

We at The Retro Arena are working on an initial Alpha build of our TheRA 3.0 build formerly known as ORA RetroPie. For those not aware we as of our latest release which will go public soon have formally and officially forked our build from RetroPie for various reasons. Sikotik is currently working on compiling the Alpha with the Current Ubuntu test 18.04 OS build by Hard Kernel. We will catalog items as we going through the process here.

I ran through some testing

*1) Auto Expand -> First boot shuts down requiring hard power reset, then boots as anticipated. Expand does work however.
*2) Controllers do not appear to work in Setup Menu
*3) Odroid Config missing manual expand option
*9) BGM folder not accessible via Samba
*11) casetheme folder not accessible via Samba (need to remove, for OGST case with XU4)
*12) esthemes folder not accessible via Samba
*14) splashscreens folder not accessible via Samba
*16) Even though Launching Videos show as enabled they are not working
*22) FB/Console Blanking needs to be fixed
*32) N64 -> lr-mupen64plus-nx/Conkers & Golden Eye does not work...kicks back to ES (issue noted in Eric's initial list)
*36) NEC PC-88 -> quasi 88 not working, screen squished, caused hard lockup (could not capture log)

Tested and verified just over 50 systems working.

Jaguar as expected has choppy audio and sluggish video

Verified Gamesir G3s and Hori PS4 mini controllers working as anticipated.

We have not attempted PPSSPP as of yet since we noticed another thread on it failing. Have not attempted DraStic for NDS nor our dev's build for Saturn.

Pretty solid start we feel for being around 24 hours of having the gear.

I fixed the console blanking by adding consoleblank=0 to boot.ini line #77
Samba shares are fixed.
BGM via mpg123 is working
EmulationStation video snaps are working.
Aleph One and cannonball compiled but are not yet tested.
Dosbox SDL2 starts up.

Should have some video up in the next day or so for our Alpha build. Great progress in the first week. We have been successful in compiling a few emulators that we are not currently able to with our XU4 build.

Will I be able to watch youtube too?
And use chromium?
I was googling and it looks like Retropie can do chromium. I don't need a full desktop but it would be great to be able to get on the web.
I have an XU4.

Leaning hard towards yes on this board since having some x11 support solved some of the emulator issues I had with SDL1.2 . So might as well use it all.
