Heads up - the Picade is absolutely great - as is the RPi 4. It seems that they dont get on too well with Retropie…
Really pulling my hair out - have a open day at school - wanted to show retropie on Piarcade along with some games my students have made - so brought one - only to find that Retropie doesn’t work on RPI4.
“There are workarounds” I hear you cry such as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5Pz60iHtL8 - with heaps of updated posts and “New” approaches on the way there. I don’t even know if this is the latest thinking or is reliant on some version of something somewhere. Nothing works so far - errors - “Cant install” and so forth.
To be fair I am trying to make retropie work on top of Buster - so I can demo a few other things as well and not be tied solely to retropie.
So im going to try https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maIkw23r-N4 - and use a huge image that purports to work.
Will probably end up using Buster - with the Pimoroni Picade hat installed and manually set up playing the games that my students have put together.
My point is Pimoroni - could you write an article explaining the situation and any possible workarounds. At the moment - the investment in the arcade has been a bad one - based on poor information. Don’t get me wrong -its a fantastic piece of kit - I cant wait to get it up and running. Seems like I’m going to have to wait until Retropie release a Buster RPi4 compatible version though.
Wish I had known and not blown the weekend going nowhere…
