    Launchbox is great, but it doesn't run on linux. RetroPie is great, but the scraper is terrible. This script will copy your roms, metadata and images from LaunchBox for use with RetroPie. It will also reduce the size of the copied images to make them load faster on the Pi. Edit the attached file to choose your platforms, and decide if you want everything, or only your favourites. How to Install: Download and install Python Choose All Users and add it to your Path Open cmd, and type 'pip install Pillow' Download the attached file and edit it accordingly (specify your LaunchBox folder, desired output folder and platforms) Run 'python launchbox_retropie_export.py' Transfer the files to your Pi using WinSCP or similar Copy the gamelists to /opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation/gamelists Copy the roms and images to /home/pi/RetroPie/roms Enable the 'Parse Gamelists Only' option in EmulationStation ToDo: Filter by playlists, instead of just favourites Option to rename the files to their LB Title Sync management for handheld emulators; consider adding metadata support where applicable
  2. I have been using Retropie but now moving to a PC based system and purchased BigBox.. Is there an easy way to use my retropie drive? I have over 2TB on an external drive complete with metadata and artwork.. Would love to be able to reuse them all.. I can import the ROMs but the drive is full of all the other stuff retropie uses and would be a PITA to clean it all out..

  4. So it seems as if Retropie is having issues with a trademark troll. They have posted some detail on their site and there was a post on /r/emulation at Reddit. One of the Mame folks jumped in and apparently they have had this issue as well, and just this year resolved it. It's a costly process no matter how you spin it. I hope Launchbox is sorted, because these people also seem to have Emulation Station in their portfolio. More detail in the Reddit post. https://www.reddit.com/r/emulation/comments/5vzqh0/retropie_is_looking_for_some_legal_help/ https://retropie.org.uk/2017/02/legal-help-needed/
  5. So I've got RetroPie running on both a Pi Zero and 3. I think I know enough about how RetroPie manages things to download extra cores and change emulators per ROM. Unfortunately I have a large list of ROMs that are not running on the Pie at all. Under PC using Snes9x_next things are great. On the Pie using Snes9x_2002, 2005, 2010, Snes9x, and PiSNES not so good. I've looked through the verbose logs but no clues other than Retroarch isn't loading the rom as it doesn't see the rom as valid. I'm not sure what to do next. The list follows (and many of these are bizarrely arbitrary: Lagoon (never had trouble before) Lufia fortress of doom (the other Lufia works fine) Mechwarrior 3050 (Mechwarrior works fine) Might and Magic II (don't care too much, this was just curiosity) Might and Magic III (don't care for same reasons) Pilotwings (a launch title I've never had trouble with? Plus other mode 7 games load fine) Prince of Persia R Type III Super Star Wars Return of the Jedi Empire Strikes Back Legend of the Mystical Ninja The Lion King (Aladdin works fine) UN Squadron (weird, never had a problem with this one) Ultima Runes of Virtue II (don't care; curiosity again) Ultima Black Gate (don't care; SNES version sucked anyhow) Ultima False Prophet (don't care; U6 controls are bad bad bad) Ultraman Uncharted Waters Wing Commander Secret Missions (Wing Command proper works fine though) I should note that I don't use anything like a full collection. These are part of my actual SNES library or, as noted, pure curiosity that I don't really need. And to reiterate they *all* run on Snex9x_next Retroarch core on PC fronted by Launchbox.
