Hello, I’m new. I’m familiar enough with Linux to use SSH/WinSCP for things, and I’ve gone through the “GS Guide For New Users” as well.
I wanted to use all the available space on my 16GB SD Card, so I imaged it with the prior firmware, v0.21, using the Etcher app to do so. So far, so good. Boots fine, get the selection menu.
I used the script described in the forums to expand my files system, and to update/install Retroarch.
This one - bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hpcodecraft/gameshell-setup/master/run.sh)
Seemed to work fine with no errors.
I copied some ROMs over into the /games/MAME directory, and allowed it to pull down the core using wireless.
Funny thing, I know some of these games work under v0.30, but when I select one it either goes dark on the screen and bounces back to the selection menu, or it dumps into a TTY session asking for the clockworkpi password.
I can’t supply one, because there’s no way to input that using the D-Pad, etc. Even if I could, what is the point, all I have is a console prompt.
Just getting a bit discouraged, because I was running into problems getting MAME ROMs to run that run on other platforms, like the Android MAME emulator.
I bought this for games, all I have is a TTY window, lol.
Should I just ditch v0.21 firmware, or is there a better way to set up MAME? I tried to read the cfg file it creates but it seems like garbage to a ASCII text editor.
Just need some kind of guidance before I just give up entirely.
