    With any of the last nightlies, maybe the last ones containing mupen64plus updates, you changed the name of the script to launch the games from m64p.start to mupen64plus.start, so the spoiler in the initial post of the is not correct anymore. I realized it today launching one N64 game and ES returned to the list of games. So I verified the script through SSH and found the name has changed. So I changed the command to launch the games and tomorrow I'll give it a try, but I think it should be okay.


    One question about N64 emulators: with the last updates of your distro, is it better mupen64plus standalone or the retroarch N64 core? With the previous versions of the distro, for my setup, it was better mupen64plus standalone. Thank you

    Build RR-20191011-5774be8 | uploaded for Generic/RK3399/RPi2 | Index of /nightly/

    • updated to latest LE 9.80 / master branch
    • updated Emulationstation system config for FBA & Flycast
    • updated PCSX2 to 1.5.0.r3303.c6b8763ba / Docker image to v1.0.5
    • updated several libretro-cores
    • updated Citra, Dolphin & RPCS3

    I don't know with which release it started to work again (I remember to have tested it with the 07/10 release maybe, and it was still not working) but hey, chrome is working again now (the issue about Intel 3000 igpu)! Thank you!

    Hi Rob,


    the last "stable" official build is the april one. If you download whatever image to make a bootable usb to install the system, then searching for updates it should find the april one. The nightlies builds are intended only to update an already installed system with the previous versions, copying the tar file in the "update" share through smb. I'm using last nightly on generic system (Fujitsu ESPRIMO Q900, Intel core i5 system) and I can tell you can use it as stable.

    Fujitsu ESPRIMO Q900 - Intel Core i5 vPro (i think it has an Intel HD 3000 igpu). I don't mind about the tearing issue in chrome, because I use it only to browse the web, not to watch videos. Can you tell me how to run it without hw acceleration? Is there a flag to accomplish it?


    Thank you

    Well maybe this is linked to mesa 19.2.0 - I guess we have to wait for a Chrome update or fix in the mesa RC
    1746685 – This is very weird but after upgrade mesa from 19.2.0~rc1-2 to 19.2.0~rc1-3 in Google Chrome browser appeared artifacts.


    You could alse see if you find a proper switch here List of Chromium Command Line Switches « Peter Beverloo and add it to chrome-flags.conf in the google-chrome dir in configfiles.

    About te Chrome issue, I stopped kodi and run chrome without flags, but the error is about the need to run it with "no sandbox" flag, so started it with the flag. Here is the CLI output:

    Most likely you need to configure your SUID sandbox correctly

    Maybe there's something else?

    Same permission issue as the previous nightlies uploads.... fix it to let us download it, thank you

    I think you have to play with xorg.conf file as already mentioned in the main posts of the distro or in some posts of the thread if I remember right. Try to make a search of xorg in this thread.

    Launch retroarch and configure the controller mapping first (that's the case for n64 emulator). If you use other emulators than retroarch cores (ex. Dolphin), you have to configure the controllers in the standalone emulator.

    You can find configuration guides for every emulator in the respective website.

    Well... there is a whole section with changelogs & links to the builds of the past LibreELEC-RR 9.x [ Emulationstation | Retroarch | Pegasus | DolphinQT | Moonlight | Chrome | Spotify ] and surprise surprise Index of /nightly/ which I posted about 4-5 posts before you asked the first time. ;)

    I have no RPi4 so I can't really build & test images for one. Also the support is actually right WIP since it uses a VideoCore VI with mesa3d. It will take some time until libretro cores have been updated & stop using old vendor blob stuff.

    I guess I add this to the FAQ then. The problem is if you boot games without you can't select the language or else but still a bit strange that it fails to run for you while it works flawless here /shrug

    I don't understand if "testing" and/or "nightly" repos could be used as continuation of "stable" one (in this case, I don't understand the meaning of the new branches), or if it's better we wait for a future stable release. Thank you.

    It could be the shading effect of kodi interface (maybe not correctly managed by the video driver). Try to disable it in the screensaver configuration and check if it freezes. You can even try to access the config menu while playing movie to check if it's the shading effect.

    Ye the command didnt change the volume of my hdmi audio output. However it was worth a try, thank you

    I think you can find the right command to obtain it. 5schatten, for example, wrote a different command... if changing the master volume doesn't affect your HDMI output volume, maybe you can specify another channel to change the volume. If you're using alsa I think there must be a way to control the HDMI output with alsamixer.


    Try to change the different channels volume in alsamixer through ssh while playing something to find out which channel affects your HDMI output, and finally change the channel name in the amixer command.


    I can't try what you're experiencing cause my nuc has not HDMI out (only DVI), so I have to use analog or spdif (digital optical output).

    In the past I used alsa as audio backend because I didnt manage to run pulseaudio. Now I gave it another try because this volume difference between dolphin and the rest annoys me too and just noticed that everything I had to do was unchecking "Use module-udev-detect to autodetect PulseAudio device". So the sound is working now and also decreasing the volume in the rr config tool works fine.

    However only with Emulationstation 5schatten you maybe remember that Im using a different script in Rom Collection Browser and I dont get it working with pulse. Currently I have no sound in dolphin if I start it via RCB. Can you please take a look and tell me what I have to change? Is it even possible to use pulse on this setup because I dont freeze kodi and I use alsa in kodi?


    I just tried to change =alsa to =pulseaudio but that doesnt work.

    You could try to insert "amixer set Master 25% unmute" at some point of the script that launches the game... But I don't know if there's a "close script" where you can insert the same code to roll back alsa master volume to 100%.


    Hope this gives you the start point for your solution.
