Today i am installing retropie on debian to see how it performs would make for more systems to be available. My plan is to use a Bluetooth controller 8bito and play some cool emulation.
If you want to use retropie see below if you get emulation station screen in wrong screen orientation.
After a reboot load terminal and type emulationstation to start it again should be all good.
Here is some more important info when you pair the uconsole in retropie note the below.
There will be 2 gamepads detected one is the keyboard which you only need to bind up down left right, the other gamepad you need ABXY SELECT & START use SELECT again for the special button.
This is just a PSA: some games rely on SDL2 gamepad detection, which won’t detect the Uconsole pad and buttons by default. To get the gamepad detected, add the following line to the .profile file in your home folder: export
what a great thread, I’ll definitely make sure to follow along when I get mine
IIRC, the CM4 and A-06 can emulate up to N64/Dreamcast. Maybe GameCube emulation has gotten easier and you could try that with an overclock. Can you overclock the GPU? Worth looking into.
Only thing i dont get with mapping the actual uconsole buttons on here with retropie is dpad maps fine but the abxy and lr buttons do not. I am not sure what they have done here and its kind of a shame thats why i rather use a decent gamepad via Bluetooth the actual keyboard maps fine.
report the bug on GitHub. I know since release they’ve updated the keyboard firmware, they’ll probably update it again.
It might be related to you using Debian instead of the official Clockwork distro for your core. You can probably fix it with some tinkering.
