I’m new to Retropie and have been spending the last week trying to get it up and running. I’ve tried version 2.2 and now 2.3 and have the same results.
I image my SD card, I expand the file system, configure controller, copy roms and I am usually able to navigate and play some games a few times but after quitting games and restarting the system I start to get to a point where I can’t even navigate in the menu anymore. I come up to the main screen to select games and the controller won’t navigate and either will my keyboard. Sometimes I can navigate left and right to scroll through the emulators with the game pad and I can hit A button to view my list of roms and then it freezes. Sometimes I can scroll left and right through a couple of emulator and then it hits one and freezes. When it freezes neither game pad or keyboard gets me out of it. I pull the plug to power cycle and it’s a crap shoot if I will get any control when it comes up. Sometimes I can power cycle 4-5 times and get it to work sometimes it just doesn’t.
I’m using the Retrolink SNES game pad if that matters. I do the initial set up of the game pad through the gui and then do the emulator game pad set up in console. I have reimaged my system about 10 times and every time it works great until I have to exit a game with esc on keyboard or reboot/power off and then things start going south.
Any suggestions? I know this can’t be the normal experience
