How do you get started, once it's built?

Post by Giskard » Wed 10 Jul 2019 19:25

I've assembled my Raspiboy and it's working perfectly.
But I have no idea what to do next.

It launches into Emulation Station, and I can see a blurry configuration screen that's mostly unreadable. Luckily I can look at a screenshot of the Retropie setup online to figure out what each blurry line says.

I'm not sure what do now, though. Are the emulators already installed? Do I need to connect a keyboard so I can do things like setting up wifi, installing MAME, etc? I know there's a Github page with instructions for setting up Retropie, but it's unclear to me which things are relevant for the Raspiboy. I feel like I've been digging through all these threads that assume one piece of knowledge or another, and going down rabbit hole after rabbit hole, when all I want to do is just load some ROMS and play a game.

Has anyone written a complete "getting started" guide once the hardware is working?

Thanks Sakib, that was very helpful!

I used a Pi Zero W, so I was able to connect to wifi pretty easily, and now I can add ROMs on my network. Much appreciated!
