Got you sound in Recalbox? I follow all the steps, everything is working but I can't get sound. Config.txt are modified. Mising something?

My sound works in game, but is missing in the menu for some reason... It might be tied to the recalbox default theme as I lost sound after I changed the theme....

I tried in menu and in game but no sound. I came back to retropie by now.
I saw in recalbox an ugly startup splash screen. White and blue, I think that is the normal screen when the display hasn't signal. Did you saw it? Could be resolved?

Hello. Where do you find the img file ?
When using the Recalbox 4.0.1 os files, even burning an img or unzipping the file, I don't have a config.txt file... I have recovery.img files etc.

Now that recalbox 4.1 is out, is there any update regarding this tutorial?

Ok, i just tested it and it works for recalbox 4.1
But there is one problem:
After every reboot or even if i just change some of the settings in Main Menu (for example enable/disable rewind function) the global.videomode changes back to 'CEA 4 HDMI' and i have to edit recalbox.conf every time, before i start to play. It seems, that global.videomode is overwritten by default values (CEA 4 HDMI) at every change of settings in Main Menu or reboot/restart. That is really annoying.

I would suggest to use retropie (with gbz-theme) instead of recalbox for RaspiBoy because performance in retropie is a bit better (navigation in emulation-station for example). Also in some snes-games there are a few bugs/glitches in recalbox, for example in Super Mario Kart on the below half of the screen, where you can see the track and the icons of other drivers. Or Donkey Kong Country is only playable, with a second controller and the controls of player 1 are only recognized, when player 2 is holding a button on the controller. On retropie both bugs are not present.

Hi everyone,

the description works very well. The Script works much better then others find on the web.
Good work, thanks a lot.
