ARpiCADE 4.4 pre-alpha

Post by dee2eR » Mon Jun 13, 2022 6:58 am

Please note: if you only have JAMMA controls and 4.3 works on your Pi4 you are best off sticking with 4.3.

This is not a mainline release. I wasn't going to release it but there's an issue with some new Pi4s not booting on older software...

Do not use 480i. Stick with either 240p (default on this relase) or high res.

MAME 0.172 is basically broken on this release (outside of high res). MAME 0.203 and MAME 0.230 work.

Preliminary USB 'light gun' support.

EDIT:
a bug games has been found for games that run at exactly 60hz, no idea why this is an issue on 4.4 yet but I have a workaround.
Replace /boot/launchers/resSwitch.sh with this version:

This bug may have been why I thought MAME 172 was broken... not sure yet but it seems to work now....

till looking for a way to exit Dreamcast/Naomi games with 4.3... have you come across a solution to that by chance?

sorry I kept you waiting on this one. I have it working now. Turns out it was a simple fix once I figured out what was actually going wrong.

Here's a new copy of exitHotkey.py for use with the 4 player adaptor (exitHotkey4p.py):

Put it in /boot/launchers/ and then either rename it so it overwrites the original exitHotkey.py OR edit naomi.sh so it calls exitHotkey4p.py instead of the original version.

I'll make it all automated with the service menu 4 player setup options in the future.
