I was planning to just run Retroarch on Raspbian, however the version in the package manager is missing the core updater and I couldn’t find a package with the cores so I’m going to try compiling it myself. I’ll let you know how that goes ^^;
Edit: In the end I used this guide on reddit to install Retropie on the Pi4
A couple of things you might run into;
curl -sS https://get.pimoroni.com/picadehat | bash
Didn’t work for me a few days ago, the package manager threw an error trying to install raspi-gpio. It’s better to follow these instructions from github:
- Clone this GitHub repository somewhere onto your Pi:
git clone https://github.com/pimoroni/picade-hat
- Enter the new directory:
- Run the installer:
- Bind your controls and enjoy!
Similar deal with the plasma buttons it’s easier to just download the source from github, extract it into a directory then enter that directory and sudo ./install.sh
I’m not sure but I think the 10 inch screen draws more power than the USB port can provide. I’ve tried both the 2.0 and 3.0 ports, in both cases if the screen is at 100% brightness it will flick on and off whenever a large portion of the screen is white. If I reduce the screen’s brightness to 75% this no longer occurs. It’s not too big a deal but whenever you reboot the screen reverts to it’s default of 100% brightness. Changing it every reboot gets kind of tiresome.
Lastly I cannot find any way to adjust the volume of the speaker, it works but doesn’t show up as an ALSA device.
