Trouble booting up

Post by ylee2121 » Fri Aug 02, 2019 2:59 pm

Thanks in advance for the help, total newbie here.

I have a cocktail cabinet set up, with some proprietary board connected to a VGA monitor and a JAMMA harness. I bought a raspberryjamma and a raspberry pi 4. I also included the sd card with the cocktail vertical games pre-loaded.

When I installed everything with the microsd that came with the raspberry jamma (from high score), it would not boot up.

I disconnected the pi from the jamma board and plugged it into my monitor, nothing, just a red light on the pi.

I got a new sd card, installed noob, and the pi booted right up and displayed on my monitor.

I found arpicade 3.84, got the image on the sd card, and the pi will not boot. I get the red light for power, a couple of green flashes, then nothing.

So is there something I'm obviously missing??

THANKS!!

Pi4 is not yet supported by ARpiCADE (it should be sometime but no ETA currently). If you have a Pi2 or any version of the Pi3 I'd recommend using them for now. RPi3B+ is the one to go for until the Pi4 is supported. Waiting on fixes for the video drivers of Pi4, the new video core works a bit differently to the old one and currently it has a few issues...

Thanks for the follow up! I don't have another pi right now so I'll wait.
