    Hi

    I have a Retropie 2.6 image that is just how i want it with all the metadata etc and want to use it on Pi3.

    Can it be ‘converted’ without being updated to the latest version?

    Reason for not wanting latest version is the loooooonnnnggggg startup and shutdown times.

    Thanks

    You should start from a new Raspbian Jessie based 3.6 image.

    I’m still using this version for the reasons you mentioned; until there’s an option to disable the saving of gamelists on shutdown (I have no use for it), we’re both gonna have to put up with being behind everyone else when it comes to new features!

    Yeah, looks like i’m going to have to stick to a Pi2 for the time being.

    Pity as the extra speed of the Pi3 would be nice.
