    Just started to use the RetroPie what is the best way to update the versions, I have simply been downloading them again and adding my ROMs again, in affect setting them up from scratch each time a new build comes out.

    But I’m sure theres a better way 🙂

    wow, and this is how to update say from 2.5 – 2.6?
    if correct this is great! I’ve been updating the same way as “raymate” for around a year haha, also then how do we tell what version/build number I’m on?
    thanks

    If you have a PI2 use:
    3: sudo __platform=rpi2 ./retropie_setup.sh

    Good to know, thought it maybe simple.

    Updating Raspbian is that easy I know, wasn’t sure about this software.

    Thanks for all the reply very helpful

    If you have a PI2 use:
    3: sudo __platform=rpi2 ./retropie_setup.sh

    fyi – __platform is only needed if it can’t auto detect or you want to force it (in say an emulated environment). if running on a pi1/pi2 it will set the platform accordingly.

    Good to know. So i don’t have to fiddle around with __platform ;-).

    When I try to update from 2.4 to 2.6, I tried the quote above. But I get this message back: “Fetched the latest version of the RetroPie Setup script. You need to restart the script”. I then press OK, Cancel, and run sudo ./retropie_setup.sh again with the same message. What am I doing wrong?

    Also, is there a way or a syntax to check which RetroPie version I’ve got?

    Thats seems a bit to easy,

    Step 1 is updating the Pi… isn’t it?
    Step 4 dos the scrips, that seems logical.
    But I see option to update the binaries, it’s that surely the thing we want to do?

    Agree a simple line to enter to show us what we are running.

    I can understand this project is rather complex the team is basically pulling in different emulators from different sources and some stuff maybe out of there control.

    But something we can enter that shows us all the current live emulators and the respective version would be great.

    Or some sort of gui for the updating stuff would be nice.

    Sometimes I feel it’s just easier to setup fresh and add the roms again

    I agree totally with raymate here! as we will probably not be the only ones needing help on this feature, maybe someone could write a nice, understandable step by step guide on updating via command line

    this seems to have worked for me

    1: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y
    2: cd RetroPie-Setup
    3: sudo ./retropie_setup.sh
    4: update setup script

    i was running 2.5 on berryboot, and i did these steps without getting any errors.

    is there any way to know for sure what version we are running?
