Hi folks, another new guy to the Picade scene here. I’m a self-admitted casual tinkerer in the retro and handheld scene (OpenPandora, GPD Win 2 and Retropie user). I’ve no great knowledge on Linux, and have been using premade Retropie images (boo hiss I know!!). For me retro gaming feels more authentic when on a TV rather than a computer screen. I had looked into the prospect of getting a Picade before, but the relative simplicity of the new version won me over. Actually doing the assembly wasn’t as bad as I feared (I didn’t make too many mistakes I think)
Now for the questions! (remeber I am using a prebuilt image so it will cuase a few issues from reading other topics on here already, but it is from a very recent Retropie install image)
I am confused as to whether this version of the Picade has volume control buttons or was that only applicable for the older USB hat version?
I am having trouble configuring my controls in every emulator so far. In the main Emulationstation menus everything works as expected but in any emulator I’ve tried so far, most the buttons don’t seem to work as they should. I’ve tried binding the new inputs in Retroarch and it seems like they’ve saved in there, but when I start an emulator they revert to the ones that don’t? what is the best approach to set all Retroarch settings, or will I have to go into each emulator individually as they have been preconfigured?
Similar to the first question, I am having video problems. I can’t seem to turn off video overlays, they seem to be acting up as they expect a 16:9 screen so cover some of the play screen.
For more complex systems that are best suited with gamepad controls or analogue, is there an easy way to configure an external controller and swap it in and out for control of player 1 as required? Or will the fact I am trying to bind keyboard controls within Retroarch interfere with this plan?
Amiga emulation…I will wait until I have all the other problems before I venture into this. Controller configuration on this seems to be awkward on any Retropie setup!!
I hope someone might help shed some light on these issues (also that there’s a different answer than “you have to create a full image from scratch”)?
Thanks in advance!
