    Hello everyone,

    I recently installed the Retropie V3.0 Image on my new Raspberry Pi2 and was wondering, if there is no sound at all in Emulationstation? I remember those “clicking” sounds from previous versions. In-game sound just works fine. My raspberry ist connected via HDMI to my computer monitor and I already tried some forcing settings like

    hdmi_drive=2
    and
    hdmi_force_hotplug=1
    hdmi_force_edid_audio=1

    but without any result. Any ideas?

    Ah great. So this is no issue. I was just wondering 🙂

    That being said, the Recalbox project has added background music (which are pretty cool tracks) to ES.

    I’m no developer so I have no idea how it is done.

    Its been added as a request but I doubt it will be added anytime soon- recalbox has done a lot of changes to the emulationstation code, the retropie project has focused more on emulator development.

    Emulationstation absolutely does have the capability for sounds when scrolling through the list of games. I had it working on 2.3, but have a different theme on 3.0 and haven’t figured out how to make sounds work with the new theme.

    All I had to do for 2.3 was to name name my .wav file as coin.wav and drop it into a folder with the rest of the theme files.

    *Edit: here are some details that should help get them working. http://emulationstation.org/forum/index.php?topic=6981.msg8745#msg8745
