[TUTO] Installing Recalbox

Post by screech » Wed 16 Aug 2017 21:59

All Step ;)

- Burn the 4.1 img to the µSD (you can download it soon ^^ )
- Edit the Config.txt on the µSD

This is mine :

Code: Select all

# uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default "safe" mode
#hdmi_safe=1

#disable_overscan=1

# uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA)
#hdmi_group=1
#hdmi_mode=1

# comment to get jack audio
#hdmi_drive=2

# Using /etc/modules is deprecated and no longer supported on 4.4 kernel
# So manually enable audio
dtparam=audio=on

#config_hdmi_boost=0

# force hdmi while the tv can take time before sending the signal on the hdmi output
#hdmi_force_hotplug=1

# uncomment for composite PAL
#sdtv_mode=2

# uncomment for lirc-rpi
#dtoverlay=lirc-rpi

# if you plug your tv at the same time as your rpi and that the rpi switches from the hdmi or give a low resolution because tv had no enough time to initialize it
#boot_delay=3

# uncomment if you don't want the rainbow at startup
#disable_splash=1

# default CEC name
cec_osd_name=recalbox

# Overclock
gpu_mem_256=128
gpu_mem_512=256
gpu_mem_1024=512

avoid_safe_mode=1

kernel=zImage

# Raspyboy
dtoverlay=pwm-2chan,pin=18,func=2,pin2=13,func2=4
overscan_left=-6 
overscan_right=-6 
overscan_top=-15 
overscan_bottom=-15
framebuffer_width=320
framebuffer_height=240
- Plug a Wifi Key on USB and start
- Config your WIFI on Recalbox "Network" Menu
- Go to the Recalbow share from your computer (\\RECALBOX)
- Navigate to \\RECALBOX\share\system
- Edit "recalbox.conf"
- Look for the "global.videomode" setting (near the end) and set it to "default"
- Save the file
- Immediately reboot your Recalbox by pressing select -> shutdown recalbox

And voila :D

Have you figured out how to increase font size?

Font Size is Theme dependant ;) so you have to found a theme dedicated to 240P or for CRT Screen.

Personnaly I quickly create a Theme without text ^^ only a Screenshot, cover, and the weel made by Universal XML Scraper MIX.

I will post it when I've got some time ;)

Where do I insert a theme in Recalbox? Also, how do I know that a retropie theme (only find ones for retropie it seems...) would work on recalbox?

When I said 4.1 I speak about 4.1 very early beta ^^

Normally, the config.txt don't change and it will work the same with a 4.0x ;)

4.1 isn't downloadable anymore for now till the RecalTeam is upgrading there server ;)

It will be back soon I think ;)

(But You can try the 4.0x Stable branche, it will work the same ;) )
