I’m trying to play the game now, and am having trouble getting EmulationStation running. How do you run it? Is there a command? From what I’ve read it looks like it should run automatically when you reboot the Pi. When I reboot it, I see the RetroPie splash screen, and then it spits me back out on the command line.
you can type “emulationstation” (without quotation marks) into the terminal and it should open up. it should boot directly into emulationstation, if it doesn’t you can go into the set up script under the setup option and change emulationstation to start on boot.
Ahh ok, made some headway on this problem. Running ’emulation station’ returns this error:
/usr/bin/emulationstation: line 11: 2500 Illegal instruction $es_bin "$@"
I did some googling and it turns out that this error comes up if you’ve installed the RetroPie Raspberry Pi 2 image on a Raspberry Pi 1. I thought I had a Raspberry Pi 2 but I was mistaken: I have a Raspberry Pi B+ v1.2 (RPi1 basically), and I have the Retropie Raspberry Pi 2 image installed.
I’ll reinstall everything with the Retropie Raspberry Pi 1 image and see if it works.
