    Hello,

    New retropie image, have moved my roms to USB and added Xbox wireless controller.

    Other games appear like mega drive but no Amiga games

    Also no longer have scumvv or macingtosh.

    What have I done wrong? I have made sure my paths are correct?

    Many thanks

    Amiga games don’t show up – you have to load them from the emulator (A launch script should be showing).

    If mac / scummvm are not showing, you likely are missing the rom folder with the launch scripts – probably when you moved everything to usb.

    However you did not detail how you switch to usb – did you mount it over ~/RetroPie or did you adjust ES configs ?

    I adjusted only the ES configs to point rom folders to USB. I then copied over the rom directory made on the USB key to that folder and gave PI full rights

    Looks like I have missed something but what? Or was there a better way to have done it?

    Thanks for taking the time to help

    Okay have copied over all the roms from the actual image so now I can see them all.

    However the Amiga still fails to shows its rom files once inside the emulator. I had adjusted the afdir conf file to point to the USB by putting:

    /media/usb0/roms/amiga

    But that didn’t work. Any other thoughts?

    I notice in emulators folder the uae4all folder and adjusting the path on there then fails to start the actual emulator. Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    I would just mount the usb over /home/pi/RetroPie – saves changing configs etc. If you only want a specific folder on the USB mounted there, you can bind mount a folder from where it is mounted currently
