I brought a picade arcade kit of ebay but it didn’t come with a raspberry pi. So I brought a new pi4 and a new picade hat usb c board and built it. I have downloaded the latest retropie 4.6 and run that and have updated everything on there. I installed the picade hat driver and have checked the following:
- Make sure
/boot/overlays/picade.dtboexists: Checked and it does
- Make sure
/boot/config.txt: checked and it does
dmesgoutput for any glaring errors: Tried to but text goes by too fast. Is there a way to display one page at a time?
- Check that
/etc/udev/rules.d/10-picade.rulesexists : Checked and it does
I then tried the following:
- drop to terminal from ES by hitting F4 (you will need a keyboard!)
- install wiringpi for the
sudo apt install wiringpi
watch -n 0.1 gpio readallto watch your GPIO status
- hit some buttons, twiddle the joystick (slowly, 0.1 is a tenth of a second so any action <0.1s may not be visible) and see if anything changes
But it comes up with model of board not recognised or similar
I have tried reseating the picade hat board and it works because I have my usb power cable attached to the picade hat board. My adapter is 3A.
It comes up saying configure controls so I press Alt on my usb keyboard but then when I try and press the joystick up nothing happens. I feel I am close to getting it to work but does anyone have any other suggestions I can try?
Any help greatfully received
