So… I was able to get my pi to load retropie (3B). I had already had a host of issues with my picade, and support kindly shipped replacement parts. (Thank you!) I currently can’t get the built in screen to work unless I boot up entirely in an external monitor and then switch the cable to the OEM one. Not sure why. My main priority is this. When I plug into the XHAT, the pi boots up. So far so good. But, the LED doesn’t power up, and, as far as the OS can see, the arcade buttons don’t exist. I’m not sure if the led should light up, but it doesn’t.
Here is a photo of it. The buttons don’t respond (they are attached properly), and the XHAT doesn’t seem to do ANYTHING but power the pi. I was able to get some stuff running via my external keyboard over USB. Can someone help?
Here’s some more info:
Seemed to be mishandled during shipping (thanks to pimoroni for sending replacents for broken pieces!)
Buttons, joystick, are unresponsive. All wired correctly.
Edit 2: speaker isn’t working either. I got Galaga up and running and it didn’t play sounds through the speaker. (I used the same rom on my Mac so I know it does HAVE sounds)
