First of all, thank you everyone for testing! Remember, keep those debug logs coming!

Not as long as I run an ION 32 system
ION x64 based on OpenELEC 3.2.0 images are forthcoming.

ERROR: LibretroEnvironment query ID=17: invalid query
Savestates, the savestate manager, game info tags (which never worked) and RCB compatibility were dropped for the pull request. The folder .userdata/Savegames should not be created (maybe it already existed?). "ERROR: LibretroEnvironment query ID=17: invalid query" was a harmless error, as query 17 hasn't been implemented. Thanks for catching this though, as eventually i'm sure it'd bite me in the ass
(2013-09-15 13:51)crajohns6965 Wrote: Ahh, that makes sense. In-game saving doesn't work either, right?
Technically, savestates still work (this is how rewind is possible). I tested Snes9x for a 60 seconds, and just over 100MB of sequential savestates were created. The part I removed was the savestate database
, so no savestates are saved to disk.

I will try this with my PS3 Bluetooth controller. Is it supposed to work out of the box ?
I'll compile new images based on OpenELEC 3.2.0. There are no RetroPlayer keymaps for PS3 bluetooth controller, but I picked one up so when I got time I'll get the controller fully functional.

I don't have an OSX machine, so OSX support won't come from me. You can try compiling for OSX and see how far it gets.

VirtualBoy roms *.vb are unable to find a emulator to install, mednafen supports *.vb : http://paste.ubuntu.com/6112888/
Game launching fails if no system directory is defined, launched fine after system directory is defined - sorry I didnt get a log, but I can if needed.
Also with a xbox360 controller rw/ff is finicky in that letting go of the triggers doesnt stop ff/rw, sometimes it will just go down from 32x to 8x etc. Is there anyway that the non-trigger buttons be used to stop ff/rw when ff/rw'ing?
Mednafen GBA core should be available for win32 and linux (linux32 failed to compile). I would like to see a debug log. I picked up a 360 controller, so I'll fix controller support when I have time.

2. Screen ratios - seemed to default to 16:9 aspect ratio with black bars on top, even though my monitor is 4:3. The image was distorted, making everything seem wider. Not sure if there is a setting to change this, and of course an auto-detect would be the best solution.
3. No obvious way to use any shaders (guessing that is not high on the priority list)
4. No obvious way to change keymap for any particular system
I'll look into the auto repeat issue when i've got time. Screen ratios are defined by the emulator. Which emulator was distorted? Have you tried others? Shaders are pretty low on the priority list (which you'll understand if you read the reports of crashing emulators). Custom gamepad configuration has been discussed here
, contributions (ideas, etc) to the discussion are welcome.

I plugged in my F710 Logitech Wireless remote gamepad. Seems to work out of the box for bSNES and Yabause which is too slow for me to use (lag too much)
I am still unable to use PSX, it is asking for a directory or use game directory, but if I chose game directory XBMC is crashing on me.
NFS work-arounds are being discussed here
. NFS should work out of the box or fail gracefully, however, so this is something I'll be looking into. Try disabling real-time rewind in the settings, and see if Yabause goes any faster. Post a debug log of PSX failing and I'll look into it later.

Compile from source. I'll push out a new build when something non-trivial changes.

The install failed at this
line. It looks like an internal XBMC problem, nothing useful is showing up in the debug log. Do other emulators install correctly?
