Sorry for the late reply!
I will do the picadehat install, thanks :)
My usual problem is that after a while, for whatever reason, the settings in the picade seem to change. For example, the emulators don’t run in full screen (black bands show on the sides, on the top, or both), or I can’t seem to get the mame emulators running properly.
When I asked this was mostly out of curiosity since I wanted to try out a recalbox image that I found, and after researching a bit, seemed credible enough to try out.
I think retropie is really cool, but, needs far too much messing around than I’d prefer to… So I was looking for alternatives :)
