By selecting a package you can choose to install it, or remove it. Due to the nature/complexity of Copyright/Intellectual Property Rights Law, which differs significantly from Country to Country, ROMs cannot be provided with Retro Pie and must be provided by the user. There are three main methods of transferring roms: Default username: pi Default Password: raspberry You can also log in as root if you wish to change more files than just the roms, but you first need to enable the root password which is explained here .See the rest of the docs for more detailed information on individual emulators, advanced settings etc.
When you get to OK press the button you have configured as "A".If you wish to configure more than one controller, you can do so from the start menu of emulationstation.This page is for people just getting started on Retro Pie.The easiest way to install Retro Pie is the SD image which is a ready to go system built upon top of the Raspbian OS - this is the method described in the following guide.Note that hotkeys are only specific to the retroarch/libretro based emulators.
When you first see Emulation Station you may wonder why you don't see systems like the SNES or Game Boy- worry not- they are installed on the system, roms just need to be added to their respective rom folders before they will become visible.
Stable additional packages are under the "Optional" section, with more unstable packages listed under experimental.
The packages are ordered first by type (emulators / libretro cores / ports), then alphabetically.
To extract from the command line, you can type the following into a Terminal window, placing X with version you downloaded: See the official Raspberry Pi "WRITING AN IMAGE TO THE SD CARD" instructions.
Note Retro Pie is built on top of Raspbian (a linux based OS for the Raspberry Pi) and as such the partition on the SD card is EXT4 (a linux filesystem) which is not visible on windows systems, so the card will show up as a smaller size than usual and you wont be able to see everything on the card, but it is all there.
You will be able to access the filesystem over the network as described in the transferring roms section below.
