RetroPlayer Test Builds (updated for Leia)
Nobody has problems with keyboard as control?

I load a rom and see that arrow keys works and keys z and x as a/b in Game Boy Color. But I ca't find any other key (select or start, of course, I tried Enter). I closed the rom and load it again and then nothing worked, until it react (i don't know how), but after close the rom and load it again, it start not reacting again (to my input).

I see the controller page and it has a default "Kodi" controller, so I tried to remap the buttons, but some times the countdown ended intead of go to next key. I can't rebind / bind my keyboard to ensure that the controller are ok, but without do this configuration, I can't do the directions + z x keys always

----------------- EDIT:

Ok, I found some behavior:

If I have Kodi in full screen, I need to click enter 1 o 2 seconds to do a "Start". Very annoying.

But whan happened in other test is that I had Kodi in windowed mode and in that mode it ignores all my presses: I opened Kodi (in windowed mode) and RetroPlayer ignored me. I click º button (to toggle full screen) and in that moment intro (after 2 seconds) , z, x and arrows worked.

--------------- EDIT 2:
Nop, fullscreen seems that is not the problem. I closed the rom and load it again and I can't get control. Here is the log with all thist test (including moments with control and moments without):

Because is a very big handicap that this can only execute zipped roms if the core have VFS support.

The problem with automatic extraction is that it has to be implemented by each frontend. If we added VFS support directly to the emulator, all frontends would benefit.

Both are possible solutions, it's just a question of which strategy is worth putting time into.

Yes, go to the right path is a good thing, but the problems will be that RetroPlayer will be launched in some moths and they are almost 1/2 of cores without VFS compatibility (no one for Sega Megadrive/Genesis!) when any other emulator have support, including RetroArch, that extracts the roms from zip and 7zip (at least).

I was reading this: https://github.com/libretro/libretro-com...-328227074
And this point:

  1. The goal is not, has never been, and will never be, for every core to use this. Most need_fullpath=false cores have no reason to touch this thing, and some cores are too badly written to be able to use it.

Seems that indicates that the goal isn't have VFS in every core, so this implies that Kodi will have no support to load zipped roms to that cores.

But well, I supose that you might have your IRC chats with libretro devels.

Development has differed from libretro in a few different areas. For example, our controller support is pretty different. Simply because they are doing something doesn't mean we'll also do that.

Are you saying that Kodi will have (or already have) their own cores? Because I supose that this will make hard have updated cores (and libretro team already have some negative comments because some cores are outdated from the upstream emulator)

The only thing I'm saying is we do things differently sometimes if it's for improving ease of use, so making assumptions about retroplayer development based on the decisions of the main project isn't always a good idea.

Is anyone else having issues controlling media playback with RetroPlayer 18 alpha1 2017-10-06?

It seems that at least the stop button doesn't work on my remotes on two different machines...one x86 and the other x64.

Should I go to the previous build?

I've noticed some issues with RetroPlayer in latest Milhouse Builds (maybe earlier, but just updated yesterday).

On Raspberry

- With Genesis emulator "Genesis Plus GX" I can nothing control with my joypad. In kodi settings the joypad is configured. "PicoDrive" don't start an get a error message.
- With ScummVM I get sound but no video. Only a black screen.

On ODroid C2

- With Genesis emulator "Genesis Plus GX" I get no Sound and no video. Only black screen und Kodi crash after an few seconds

Could provide logfiles at evening. But maybe someone else have this issues too.

Just a short FYI: I bought the 8bitdo N30 Arcade Stick and it can be used to play Gameboy, NES and SNES Games on the latest @milhouse builds! Thanks everybody!
http://www.8bitdo.com/n30-arcade-stick/

IF someone else tries to get it to work:

To get the best result connect it with the Windows Mode of the controller (XINPUT MODE and then START the controller).
Nintendo Switch Mode doesnt work, MAC does connect but I cant get it to work, Android works as well but the mapping isnt working great

With "Windows Mode" I could use all buttons and it works as expected!

@garbear: is there any way to add an Arcade Stick Controller Profil? I wanted to use the stick to play some Arcade games, but couldnt find a good Arcade Controller Profile. Did I miss any?

Can you post a debug log?

Can you post a debug log? I'll try this emulator in the next few days.

This might be because a BIOS is required. I'll try to reproduce.

I don't have an ODriod to test on. Does this work on RPi?

Arcade games are tricky, because there's no one single profile. How would this work?

Hello, I am running OSMC leia nightly builds and I am unable to make my steam controller working. Does it work in libreelec? Or does it work at all with kodi? Thank you.

My steam controller driver is still a work-in-progress. There is a Python driver that OSMC and LE might be using.
