Version 3.4 of RetroPie was released today. According to petRockBlog, it contains “mostly fixes and improvements rather than new stuff.”
RetroPie is a project residing at petRockBlog, which aims to provide a comprehensive set of works that turn Raspberry Pi into a retro-gaming console and allow players to easily relive their nostalgic memories . Because of that, it has gained lot of popularity since its release in 2012.
Problems with our RetroArch configuration reported in version 3.3 should be fixed now. Raspbian Jessie is now used as the base for RetroPie images. It is recommended to move to Jessie if you’re using Wheezy. Scroll down to see full changelog.
” We also have added early support for using the RetroPie-Setup script on a X86/X11 desktop setup, as well as some basic support for building EmulationStation & RetroArch + cores on the ODroid-C1,” the announcement post says.
Changes since 3.3
- Now using Raspbian Jessie for the RetroPie image.
- Fixes for controller input issues with RetroArch including improved config generation to work around problems with 8bitdo controllers.
- Fixed up Bluetooth pairing module on Jessie.
- Improvements to the Xbox userspace driver (xboxdrv) including partial support of Xbox One controller.
- Can now choose to exit or restart Emulation Station. Metadata will no longer be lost if choosing to shutdown or reboot.
- Preliminary support for using the RetroPie-Setup script on x86 + X11 on Debian/Ubuntu and Ubuntu on the Odroid-C1 (building from source only).
- $HOME/.emulationstation has relocated to /opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation – but is symlinked from the original location. The USB Rom Service script will backup all of /opt/retropie/configs to USB. Previously it only backed up /$HOME/.emulationstation.
- Support for choosing RetroArch shaders and overlays from the RetroPie-Setup configuration editor.
- Added pixel theme from Rookervik to theme installer.
