As the title says, this is a long overdue update to my site and to say that I have some new builds on the way over the next couple of days. 🙂
So first of all – my apologies for going missing for some time. I’ve had a number of things going on which meant I have not had time to maintain the site, so again, I apologise for neglecting it. I see there are hundreds of comments I need to answer but I feel that the majority of the issues that are mentioned have since been fixed in new versions of the OS’s (RetroPie etc.), so my best advice would be to await my new builds and install those to see if your problem disappears. If it doesn’t then leave a new comment and I will reply (promise!). 😉
Ok so I have started on new RetroPie v4 builds and was about ready to package it up and upload it and then another update came along yesterday (4.0.2), so I need to start again, but it will be finished and ready before the end of this week.
After threatening to do so for some time I I will be finally be creating some Pi1 / Pi Zero builds, so expect to see them appear over the next few days too.
I will be using a new fork of NOOBS as created by Nitrus (https://github.com/Nitrus/noobs). This version contains the ‘USB Stick Install’ changes and is aligned to the latest version of ‘Standard NOOBS’, so this means you will no longer see the warning message that was seen in my last builds when using a Pi3. The partitioning layout has slightly changed in this new version however (everything seems to be bumped up by one partition number), and this affects my existing partition switching scripts. To combat this I am trying to make a more dynamic switching script that will query the partitions to find out which is the correct one to use. This in theory would mean you could mix and match any OS’s and the script would always find the correct partition regardless where it is… in theory! If it works then it prevents the need for creating multiple scripts that are only specific to one particular build, which isn’t very user friendly (for example only needing one of my KODI addons for RetroPie / Raspbian etc. instead of needing to specify an actual build / build date).
I feel like I am waffling a bit now so I will leave it at that – keep an eye out for new builds appearing over the next few days and any comments / suggestions / requests / abuse please leave them below. 😀
All the best.
