  Orange Pi Prime support
Posted by: Quang-vip - 01-13-2021, 02:20 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.3 - Replies (2)

I've got an Orange Pi Prime for nearly a year and during that time I had many attempts to do graphics & video acceleration on Linux, but to no avail. Sad
Specifically, with the official Armbian image for the Prime (it was Bionic that time), I tried to install the Mali blobs from mripard on github but things didn't go like I expected it to be....
Other than that, I also tried the official Android build for it, but you know, those Chinese builds are always unstable Smile (buggy, sometimes some graphics artifacts,....)

So I'm wondering if we could bring support for the Pi Prime? Big Grin
I saw another post here also mentioning the Prime: Orange Pi Prime
And since there is a build for the PC2, can we perhaps make some tweaks to make a build specifically for the Prime (basically the Prime is a PC2 but with built-in wireless capabilities)?

Or can I get the source and build it myself? If so, where should I start from? (I have a basic knowledge of GNU Make & Cmake)

I'd really appreciate your help and suggestions! Smile)))))

  Tactile screen AND other one?
Posted by: galiani99 - 01-09-2021, 05:44 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.3 - No Replies

Hello all!

My name is Javier, I'm new here and in the Orange Pi community. I have a really big doubt. Let me explain:

I'm going to build an arcade. Okay, but I want to play some nintendo DS games. Could I play the up part in a monitor and the down part in the tactile screen?

If this is not possible, I could change the screen while playing, maybe with a switch, a relé or similar?

I really hope if I explain what I want to do correctly. This is not my mother tongue.

Thanks you all!!

  HDMI problem
Posted by: Shinra - 01-09-2021, 01:58 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - Replies (2)


I was trying to setup an mini arcade to my room. I was using retrorangpi 4.2 full desktop (Debian Jessie) on my orangepipc. When it was booting, the screen is only red and the info showing in my monitor is DVI-HDMI 720p 60 but I am not using a HDMI TO DVI converter. I try to configure my display on armbian-config and I choose HDMI not DVI but the result is the same after rebooting. Can someone tell me how to fix this? Sad Sad Sad

  GPIO on OrangePI ZeroPlus2 H3
Posted by: Lamerjack - 01-06-2021, 10:55 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - No Replies

I noticed that Enabling GPIO on OrangePI ZeroPlus2 H3 wifi stop working (and maybe can be damaged because on one of my two boards now the Wifi and BT doesn't work anymore).

This board has a different pinout for gpio here how to (at the moment partially fix)

wget http://www.retrorangepi.org/repofix.tar.gz
sudo tar -zxvf repofix.tar.gz -C /
sudo apt-get update

install GPIO as normal:
Select from EmulationStation:
RetroPie - RetrOrangePi - Enable GPIO

apply the fix

wget https://www.dropbox.com/s/847s5lm838gm1pw/gpiofix.tar.gz?dl=0 -O gpiofix.tar.gz
sudo tar -zxvf gpiofix.tar.gz -C /
cd /home/pi/RetrOrangePi/GPIO/orangepi_PC_gpio_pyH3-master/
sudo rm -r build
sudo python setup.py install

is a partial fix because the Down and Left  gpio now use PL0 and PL1 that seems that are not working using python.
Any suggestion how to make work these two GPIO?
I used  PA13 for Down and
PA14 for left.
this fix correct also the problems with update,so fater this patch is possible to apply the hotfix 1 from menu.

  Wishes for a new year full of serenity

Hi guys, I wanted to wish all of you in the forum, but specifically to the moderators and our Alexkidd a wonderful new year. May this year be much better for each one of us. I'm Italian and before joining this forum, I didn't know anything about Retropie. They gave me an OrangePi Lite and here I came across the forum, where slowly, reading it I managed to get my personal retro-console. I say thank you, thank you and thank you again and I hope that this forum will grow more and more. I send you all my personal virtual hug and my most sincere wishes.

With love, Orazio.

  Orange Pi PC - What can it handle?
Posted by: Turvy - 12-30-2020, 11:02 PM - Forum: HARDWARE DISCUSSION - Replies (1)

I dug out an Orange Pi PC I bought a couple of years ago, and I am going to install retrorangepi 4.3 - I think it can handle that, but what gen console is the latest I could install on it?

Are their any preloaded images like the ones on arcadepunks?

Can it handle Dreamcast?

  Orange Pi Plus 2 (not E)
Posted by: BioFX - 12-23-2020, 06:08 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.3 - No Replies

Hi guys!

I have an OPI Plus 2, not plus2E, and couldn't find the correct retrorangepi for this board.
I tried with the .img (v4.3) from OPI Plus 2E folder, but the USBs don't working. For the OPI plus version, i can't find the 4.3 version.
Which one should i use?

Edit: Why all links in version 4.2 Slim (the only 4.2 version for Opi Plus) are broken? Is there some script to fix them?
