I’ve installed the build from approx. 6th/7th February, which “Buzz” has put there on the server.
Thanks to Buzz for all of your work.
So I’ve read, that the N64-Emulator maybe has some problems.
But I didn’t use it.
Also I read, that there can be done some updates?!
So I want to ask if updates can be done or when there is a new version, if I must overwrite it each time on my SD-Card and configure all new.
So if there is an update function, I can start with configuring the software.
Or is there planed a fixed image in the near future?
As the software is constantly being updated, there will always be something going on and always another update to do, but it isn’t necessary to reimage your sd everytime there is an update.
The way you update is
then you update the setup script and then you can select install from binary or install from source for each emulator (binary is much faster but may not be as updated, building from source takes a long time but you get the latest updates)
The main updates typically involve the emulators as code is improved, emulation station usually stays pretty much the same. You’ll need to be connected to the internet when you update but the easiest way to update things will always be through the setup script.
When I have a good running system, is it then needless to update it (I know: “Never update a running system”… 🙂 ).
But maybe there are a lot of bug fixes?
So maybe if I update the system, will then the DAT-files (for example for Mame) change and is there the risk, that a lot of games then will not run anymore, because of a changed dat-file/rom-set-needed?
