RECALBOX, the retrogaming OS!

Post by Fab2Ris »

Hi !

I'm Fab2Ris, the Social Media Manager of the free and open source project "RECALBOX", the Retrogaming OS for Raspberry Pi, Odroid, PC... dedicated to the preservation and accessibility of our childhood game-video heritage, born in 2015.
At the same time, let me to introduce you a part of the Recalbox team present on this forum:
  • digitalLumberjack, the creator of Recalbox,
  • bkg2k, our lead dev
  • davidb2111, dev and buildroot expert
    ian & gugue_u, devs too
We are Twitch Partner, +1.5 million downloads, +100k internet followers, 2 million views/month on Facebook, 2 million views on YouTube, a lot of articles in the specialized press and by influencers on YouTube...

We've released this Friday a Recalbox version for two handheld consoles: the ODROID-GO Advance and the brand new ODROID-GO Super from HardKernel!
Only a few days after we received our boards in France, our volunteers have ported Recalbox to the ODROID-GO Advance and Super, two particularly interesting compact consoles.

A simple port?!
The Recalbox team knows of no such thing...

This is much more than just a simple port, mind you.
The Recalbox team has done lots of work to take advantage of the capabilities that the Super provides:
  • General system optimization
  • Volume and brightness control via hardware buttons
  • Headphone jack management with automated auto output switching
  • Power consumption optimization, for longer battery life
  • Battery charge level management, with a display in the menu
  • NEW: SLEEP MODE! Whether you’re in a menu or in the middle of a game, a simple press of the power button will put your system into a power saving mode. Another press will turn the system back on, letting you pick up where you left off, even after several days… just like the Nintendo Switch!
  • NEW: STARTUP WIZARD + MULTILINGUAL TUTORIAL WIZARD, for even more convenience, and an unparalleled user experience!
AND ALL THIS… WITHOUT ANY USER ACTION, SETUP OR CONFIGURATION NEEDED!

Much more than a new port, Recalbox on Odroid Gos surpasses everything that has been done so far in terms of ergonomics and user experience in the world of retrogaming, becoming a new quality standard.
We are very proud and happy to present these products to you, and we look forward to reading your feedback on your user experience, ergonomics of Recalbox, integration of the menus/shortcut keys, startup wizard during installation... ah yes, because that too is new!


DOWNLOAD RECALBOX : https://download.recalbox.com/


ENJOY!

Does Recalbox include Kodi and Moonlight? I've successfully tested Moonlight using TheRA and it worked pretty well, but I couldn't get Kodi working on it. I had another image that had Kodi working on it, but it only worked on the original OGA and not the Super. Would be fantastic if both Kodi and Moonlight were included!

No bug.
Videosnaps sounds will be a Recalbox 7.2 feature, with a deticated parameter (background music, mute, videosnaps music, etc.)
Coming next 4-8 weeks, we're finalising it ;)

We made the choice not to include Kodi on these small handheld consoles with a very limited screen resolution to play movies in 1080p or 4K.
Moonlight is compiled and available but the team has not been able to test its compatibility with the latest versions. This is one of the tasks we are working on.

This is indeed the solution.... before we deploy the big update of the Recalbox interface that we have been working on for months. It's coming in 2021! ;)

Also, it seems as though the kernel you are using is missing the latest agreed upon joypad mappings.

This is an old option that will disappear with the new version of our interface, which will arrive in the next few weeks/month.

Duckstation is expected to be GLES compatible, which should greatly improve the overall performance of this emulator!
This is very promising!

Actually duckstation on GLES is quite slow compared to the software renderer. Perhaps if vulkan ever reaches this device then we can hope for better performance.

That's what I said: Drastic improvements can be expected when Duckstation will be fully compatible.
It's an emulator in full evolution at the moment!

You said: "Duckstation is expected to be GLES compatible, which should greatly improve the overall performance of this emulator!

Duckstation is already GLES compatible and it's slow presumably because of how bad the mali blobs currently are. Vulkan, which is different than GLES, will hopefully be faster but isn't guaranteed.

I haven't tried duckstation on your OS yet to see if you're using software graphics, but I just wanted to mention this in case as we're getting full 60fps.

This has been favorite firmware on my OGA BE. After discovering that it has been release for the OGS, I tried it. I liked it but my wifi dongle (TP-Link Archer USB T2U nano) does not work.

I Have to ask, I seen Kodi on the build as well but have no idea how or why would yo use Kodi on the ODG S?

Because the OGS's Rockchip is capable of doing it, and the OGS was designed and built to be more than just 'another emulation handheld'? It's capable of running it, the hardware is sufficient for it, you don't need Ultra 4k resolution videos on a five inch screen that is about as big as most smartphones, and maybe some people might want to use it sometimes to play music of videos when not using their OGS?

I found this solution from Grimlock42G1 on the Recalbox forums here: https://forum.recalbox.com/topic/23294/ ... -screen/11

I was able to browse to this file on my computer (same partition as ROMs are stored): system/.emulationstation/es_input.cfg
NOTE: If you are on a Mac, you will need to show hidden files. They can be hidden/unhidden by pressing Command+Shift+. (period)

and add this text below above the </inputList> at the end of the file.

Code: Select all

  <!-- Odroid Advance Go Internal controler -->
  <inputConfig type="joystick" deviceName="odroidgo2_joypad" deviceGUID="19000000010000000100000001010000" deviceNbAxes="2" deviceNbHats="0" deviceNbButtons="16">
