[RetroPlayer 17.0] LibreELEC 8.0 builds for S905/S905X

  • I couldn't resist... the waiting for Leia was too long so I've built kszaq's 7.95.beta5b for S905/S905X with the Inconspicuous fix included (Inconspicuous fix by garbear · Pull Request #11022 · xbmc/xbmc · GitHub). Credits go to kszaq, garbear and lrusak. I've only put those together.


    Haven't tested this yet, but basically it's the kszaq's 7.95.beta5b built with RetroPlayer patch.


    Emulators are not included but it should be possible to use any 32-bit arm builds (e.g. for RPi2).


    Download:
    LibreELEC-S905.arm-8.0-devel-20170204160005-r25435-gdef3df6.tar


    Install:
    First install kszaq's 7.95.beta5b. Then place the tar file to "/storage/.update" folder and reboot.


    EDIT:
    The build seems to work for me except for save states. The performance however is not as good as I expected on my A95X (S905X). Probably due to overheating and thermal throttling.
    Also I've managed to compile a basic set of emulators for use with this build:
    game.libretro-1.0.1.100.zip (install this first)
    game.libretro.nestopia-1.48.0.100.zip (NES)
    game.libretro.fceumm-0.98.13.100.zip (NES)
    game.libretro.snes9x2010-1.52.4.100.zip (SNES)
    game.libretro.genplus-1.7.4.100.zip (Genesis)
    game.libretro.picodrive-1.91.0.100.zip (Genesis)
    game.libretro.pcsx-rearmed-19.0.0.100.zip (PSX)
    game.libretro.mupen64plus-2.0.2.100.zip (N64)

  • Thanks for your build, games part is activated.


    I'm using xbox 360 wireless controller which works but the light never stop blinking.
    Does anybody know how kodi could assign a number to the controller?

  • The emulators don't show up after installing them. What am I doing wrong?

    Beelink MiniMXIII II 2GB, 32GB always running latest Libreelec from SD card. No issues so far(except for the ones already known or posted by me).

    Mecool m8s Pro+ which with widevine level 1, Android runs a hacked version of android TV.


  • retroarch not supposed to do the job?.

    Here the emulation is done through kodi.


    With retroarch kodi's process is killed.


    I confirm that emulation has poor performance compared to retroarch. I tested snes and the sound stutters.

    There is sound shuttering in SNES on my Nexbox A95X too. But after a brief exploration I've found that the CPU is being under clocked due to the bad thermal design of these boxes. When I opened the box and kept the temperature below 80'C (e.g. by holding my hand on the cooler), the CPU went back to it's 1,5 GHz and there were no sound shuttering in SNES any more.

  • I manage to get it to work (somehow).

    I've compiled the Mupen64 and added the link to the original post however I'm now not able to test it because my A95X didn't survived my experiment with heat sink tuning.
    It seems that they not only did a terrible thermal design but they also glued the heat sink to the SoC so well that it is very hard to remove without damaging the PCB :@

  • Yes, it is now integrated in Kodi 18 "Leia" so even in S912 builds. There are issues but it should be ready by the time Kodi 18 is released.

  • I have got testet it and it works great!

    But i dont Like the AEL or RCB for scraping roms.

    But Now i use a old X/:rolleyes: Version of Emulation Station and it works great but this Version can´t use Videosnaps and Collection Features


    But thx for your Help
