PiMAME: Little F.A.Q


We started the week resolving some questions you can find with this Raspbian loaded with emulators from Shea Silverman.

Here we go!

[Do not hear sound through HDMI]

Execute the following:

sudo amixer cset numid=3 2
sudo amixer cset numid=3 100%
sudo amixer cset numid=3 unmute

Edit the file config.txt as follows:

sudo nano /boot/config.txt 

and remove the # character from the line hdmi_drive=2

[I can't see the ROMs in the emulators]

Runs under the command line as follows:

sudo chmod 644 roms/*.*
sudo chmod 755 roms

Remember that you can use files in .zip although beware with uppercase extensions.

[How to configure my Xbox 360 Pad]

Edit the file advmenu.rc as follows:

sudo nano .advance/advmenu.rc

and changes from none to auto in the line device_joystick

Now install the driver:

sudo apt-get install xboxdrv

Edit the file rc.local as follows:

sudo nano /etc/rc.local

and added after the lines with # characters the follow:

xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --id 0 --led 2 --deadzone 4000 --silent &
sleep 1
xboxdrv --trigger-as-button --id 1 --led 3 --deadzone 4000 --silent &

changing *--id * by *--wid * if your pad is wireless.

NOTE: The pad will not work on menus, only in games.

[and my USB Pad]

OK. Install the driver:

sudo apt-get install joystick

With the pad connected, execute the following:

jscal -c /dev/input/js0

Where js0 is the pad 0, js1 is 1,...

In this calibration app, do not touch any buttons until prompted. First set the horizontal axis pressing back + button (0), center+button (128), front+button (255). For the vertical axis: up+button (0), center+button (128) and finally down+button (255).

[Why cant' load some ROMs in the MAME4ALL]

This version is a port of MAME 0.37b5:

If it does not work the ROM you want, try the AdvanceMAME.

[Where can I get the ROMs]

Search on the internet, or the links below as the law of your country allows it (I am not responsible blah, blah, blah ...):

[End words]

The list of questions and answers will be updated with more questions. I recommend reading the official forum to answer your questions or below in the comments.
