Emuelec for the Odroid Go Advance

Jump to this post to download the first early alpha

viewtopic.php?f=193&t=37516&p=279406#p279406


This is just a quick preview running GBA, there is still no image available as I need to figure out a few quirks, but in general its coming out really cool :)

https://youtu.be/r7rDkB9VkFE


Systems I tested so far are, NES, SNES, SNES with MSU1, Genesis (MD), PSX, Naomi (but runs not that great) , N64, Master system, Amiga (with PUAE, working on Amiberry) basically most Libretro cores work perfectly fine. I also tested OpenBOR and it runs really well, but I need to figure out how to rotate the screen.

The reason I didn't release a test image is because there is a weird bug that seems to make games stutter, its related to the SD card access, and it seems it only affects a few SDs, and I still need to clean up some remaining and unneeded services, but keep an eye on this post and I will release a test image ASAP.

Many thanks to cdu13a from the CoreELEC team who helped me a LOT to figure out the booting process and to the batocera team from which I borrowed a few configurations and of course Hardkernel for giving me early access to the device so I can port EmuELEC to it.

I will post more videos when I make more progress :)

I got PPSSPP with the libgo2 working, but as expected PSP is not that great, but some games run better than I expected! haven't tested the pure SDL2 version yet.
Also got Amiberry working with libgo2 as well, but I think I am having problems with the configuration options:)

So is this a fork of LibreELEC, CoreELEC, or just a fresh start using the ELEC just-enough-OS primciple? I'm intrigued either way, I'm just curious.

The base is CoreELEC but without Kodi and no video decoder drivers, etc, so a streamlined version made specifically for emulators

The first early alpha of EmuELEC for Odroid Go Advance is up for download

It's still very early and many things need to be changed/fixed

To load ROMS, connect by network share to the ROM folder and copy your roms, bios should go in roms/bios, you can check the main menu > game options > missing bios screen
you can also browse the SD card after it has been resized (done at first boot) with a Linux machine (or Windows with a ext4 program), and copy them to the roms folder directly (you need administrator/root access to this folder)

Features:
  • Most Retroarch/libretro emulators work fine
  • Background music (shoud go into the roms/BGM folder mp3s and ogg are supported)
  • Samba shares (to load roms)
  • SSH (see first issue)
  • Usb Stick rom mounting (create a folder named /roms with the same folder structure as https://github.com/EmuELEC/EmuELEC/wiki ... t-Rom-Path and add an empy file named emuelecroms with no extension)
  • Ports work but need the roms/bios (check the main menu > game options > missing bios screen)
  • Includes PPSSPP with libgo2 support by crashoverride

In-game hotkeys for Retroarch (some of them also work on Amiberry):
Hotkey is button 1
1 + Up/down controls volume
1 + LB Loads Savestate / RB saves
1 + 4 Shows/hides FPS
1 + 5 fast forward
1 + 6 quits game
1 + x loads menu (this also works with 3 + 4)
1 + b resets
1 + dpad left/right change save slot
For other emulators 1 + 6 quits emulator

Known issues:
  • Text is over loading screen
  • No splash screen support
  • Scripts (on the setup menu) do not work (can't open a terminal window, anyone has any idea how this could be done? I used fbterm on amlogic, but the go advance uses KMS/GBM instead of fbdev)
  • ResidualVM and ScummVM can't scan for games, as they need script support
  • No global hotkeys (volume, brightness) yet
  • No auto switching headphone/speaker (is this even possible?)
  • Some emulators and ports do not yet have screen rotated (VVVVVV, StellaSA, HatariSA, OpenBOR, maybe others)
  • Some emulators still do not work properly or at all (Amiberry has screen issues and Reicast does not yet load for example)
  • Some slow SD cards make some emulators stutter so use the fastest one you have.
  • Retroarch menu does not rotate :/ -- Fixed :)
  • Some settings need to be set by default, will be done on next release, (sceen ratio, retroarch menu driver, etc) you can change them in the meantime on the main menu > game options, (this can also be set per game, press button 1 when selecting a game.)
Enjoy and if you try it and find something else I missed please let me know

Use etcher or your favorite flashing tool on a SD!

Only HK Module 0 WiFi dongle works, no other dongle or Ethernet adapter has worked for me, even tho they connect fine, can't download themes or connect to the device by SSH
Check out my post here for additional drivers that should work: viewtopic.php?f=194&t=37485

If you don't see your driver listed just give me as much information as you can and I'll work on it.

Also, try using netplan instead of NetworkManager.

That is not the issue, the problem I am facing is different, SSL does not work on any other dongle or adapter except for the Module 0

This image is by far my favourite image to use! Batocera kept reverting back to stock settings and my roms would disappear for some strange reason, the ubuntu image has no way to change discs for multidisc games but this has everything I need. Many thanks to you and also to the Hardkernel team :D

I went into game settings and set the game ratio to square pixel instead of auto.

I couldn't get lr-gpsp to load a rom, I have the bios in the right place but it just goes back to the menu screen. Is this an emulator that isn't working?

This is one of the more full-featured OS so far but I can't seem to get any audio from the 3.5mm audio jack. Am I missing something?

Thank you for your work on this!

Thank you!!

You need to go into the system settings and switch to the headphone jack on the audio output. Still trying to figure out if there is a automatic way to switch when you plugin the headphones

The stock core (i'm not sure which one it uses) doesn't run Final Fantasy IV Advance at full speed, it stutters on the opening scene. I had more luck running said rom on lr-gpsp when I was using a Pi zero and 3b+ so thought I would give it a try.

Oh that's odd, I went to look in System Settings, but the only option I have for Audio Output is Auto.

Makes sense, but I think lr-gpsp is broken (even on the other platforms I use it) it was never meant to be included, and unless I can find a solution it will be removed in the final image :(

Can you try it please? Just to see its not isolated. It's slow with every os I've tried, gameplay maybe 60 fps but the opening sure isn't.

You are right, that cloud intro really makes the GBA emus crawl! I will see more into it.

EDIT: Got gpsp working, and it runs much better :) will be available on the next test release as soon as I fix a few quirks

Amazing build so far... I love the hotkeys any luck rotating the menus on retroarch, I read somewhere on the lakka build they were having the same issues, said something about using the wayland-egl library.

Just uploaded a new test version:

Fixed gPSP, which now seems to be the fastest GBA emu available
Added Heaphone output (in the menu go to system settings and select audio output)
Set RGUI as default Retroarch menu driver, since its easier to navigate until I can find a proper rotation solution
Temporarily removed splash screens and video, as they were causing problems
Fixed other small bug-fixes
Added working Reicast (but the game-pad is not yet set up properly and can't exit the emu, I suggest not to use it yet)

Remember there is still a LOT of work to do on this, need to do a proper cleanup of packages and change some settings to better work on the OdroidGoAdvance, but if you find any problem please let me know!

Added working Reicast (but the game-pad is not yet set up properly and can't exit the emu, I suggest not to use it yet)

Remember there is still a LOT of work to do on this, need to do a proper cleanup of packages and change some settings to better work on the OdroidGoAdvance, but if you find any problem please let me know!

Awesome, thanks! Is it possible to update the image without doing a complete wipe?

Just uploaded a new test version:

Fixed gPSP, which now seems to be the fastest GBA emu available
Added Heaphone output (in the menu go to system settings and select audio output)
Set RGUI as default Retroarch menu driver, since its easier to navigate until I can find a proper rotation solution
Temporarily removed splash screens and video, as they were causing problems

Unfortunately no, you will have to do a manual backup to do this I had to change the internal name so it will not update, sorry

gPSP needs the gba bios, it should go into /storage/roms/bios

  • Only HK Module 0 WiFi dongle works, no other dongle or Ethernet adapter has worked for me, even tho they connect fine, can't download themes or connect to the device by SSH
I bought the cheapest Ethernet adapter I could find on Amazon and it works with first and second alpha. It's a chinese unknown brand: "Rankie USB Network Adapter, USB 3.0 to RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet Internet Adapter"

were you able to get other wifi dongles working? More work in the hk image and retro arena... admittedly I haven't dug much as many utilities are missing(unsurprisingly) from those distro images.. apt-get works, but I haven't done anything other than update/upgrade to check (libxml2 updates on both of those images), and I installed 7zip package on retro arena (unfortunately there is apparently a newish(?) rar variant that it doesn't support(yet, or a broken rar created by an unofficial rar archiver not sure which ATM)).

EDIT:
OK, WIFI IS working for me, but I have no idea what the user/pw combo is ATM, odroid/odroid does NOT work.

EDIT2:
OK it's root/emuelec, and ssh IS working This
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07M6 ... UTF8&psc=1

adapter

EDIT3:
actually I guessed the pw correctly given my exp w/libreelec, but I thought that he might've gotten cute with the user.

Haven't checked out any 'backups' yet, may or may not tonight, but that said emuelec is looking best of all w/more options (I hope) working, and less OS BS v. the Ubuntu based/base HK image... although TBF the HK will eventually have 'projects' as well(like the go), so the fuller OS support is intentional, although for pure emulation I think a more stripped down system is best...

EDIT4:
psx emu has the screen rotation problem... pspemu is worse than the others, gave up for tonight...

I believe the unit I have might have some weird issues, as people have reported several dongles working for them, specially on the new image I just uploaded. For me, none work except for the HK Module 0 WiFi dongle, which is very weird, but I would not count this as a general bug anymore.

Could you elaborate on this? the PSX emu is ran under Retroarch so it should behave as the others, doesn't it?

PSP is going to be a really hard, hit and miss on this device, some games will run better than others but I assume most wont.

PSX works fine with anything I tested. Rotation can be tweaked via in-game menu: 1 + X > B > Settings > Video > Output > Video Rotation

You need to switch "Show Advanced Settings" to ON in Settings > User Interface to see the rotation option.

Hi, this system is fantastic! A lot less headaches getting roms working than the other options.

I'm having trouble getting MK2 to run full screen, using square pixel aspect ratio it looks great but there is a large black border around it / not using the whole screen. I'm assuming a custom cfg file is needed, but I am not sure where it goes. I tried putting one i made in the same folder as the mk2.zip (mk2.zip.cfg) on the USB2.0 thumb drive I have my roms on but it seems to not work.

EDIT: Found it, set Integer Scale to ON and Aspect Ratio to Core Provided in Games Advanced Settings! Looks and plays great!

emuelec is the best OS I think.

If a slight improvement is possible, the system's sound or screen brightness settings can be saved or controlled via hotkeys in OS

Thanks all for trying out EmuELEC, remember this still needs a lot of work, but if you have made any changes to setting you think should be set as default, let me know and I will implement them ASAP!

Hi Shanti

Just FYI, installed your Emuelec on my Go Advance - all 42 systems working great - good work!

I've installed the bezels through settings > the bezel project but they don't appear to show on any game - is there another setting to enable them?

Couple more things- where do you change the time? And is there a battery gauge?

EDIT: Figured out the time - changed system.timezone=Mexico/General to system.timezone=Europe/London in the same file them set system time from the terminal using the date command.

FYI - Netgear G54/N150 USB wifi adaptor works great on this build :-)

I have to say this is the best image I have tested! Thank you for all the hard work!

I have a couple of notes:
1. Any way to get N64 running better? It's not horrible it just slow, doesn't this processor/gpu support volkan?
--Nevermind! I found that using the Parallel_n64_libretro emulator with the gln64 GFX plugin works like a charm! Even Paper Mario looks and runs nearly perfect.
2. PSX is awesome, even with the high resolution turned on runs great.
3. ppsspp: anyways to make the menu/font smaller? What about Volkan support here as well?
4. Other Retro: All seem to run really good, small stutters with the snes and super fx but toying with the core and it is running good now.
5. Any way to add a sleep option (seeing it is portable), or does it always need to be shutdown and restarted when pressing the power?
6. I have not see any options for this, but is there support for speeding up/fast forward emulation (for those unskip-able 20 minute loading screens lol)
--Found these in the hotkeys settings.
7. Possibly a global way to assign keys or macros?

Again thank you for this!
