I am trying to build a NES emulator out of a Raspberry Pi Model B that I have had since 2012. I downloaded the RetroPie
image from the Download Page (retropie-v2.6.0-rpi1.img.gz). So far this is what I have done.
1. Wrote RetroPie image to SD
2. Expanded the File System
3. Update the Raspberry Pi by running the following commands
– Sudo rpi-update
– Sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y
– Run Raspberry Pi Scripts
• CD RetroPie-Setup
• Sudo ./retropie_setup.sh
• “Update RetroPie Setup script”
4. Used FileZilla to copy my NES ROMS to /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/NES
The problem I am having is that when I try to start up the ROMS on the Raspberry Pi I get the error below for about 5
seconds then it goes back to my list of ROMS.
Press ‘x’ or ‘m’ to configure launch options for emulator/port (neslibertro)
Powering on HDMI with explicit settings (Cea mode 4)
Frontend supports RGB565 – will use that instead of XRGB1555.
RetroArch [WARN] :: load_content :: Tried extracting to extraction directory, but extraction directory was not set or found. Setting extraction directory derived by basename…
RetroArch [ERROR] :: load_content :: Failed to load content
Powering on HDMI with preferred settings
Does anyone know what I can do to fix this? I have already tried to flash the SD card again however I still get the same error. I also tried just flashing the SD card with the RetroPie image then copying 1 NES ROM onto the SD card without running any updates and I still get the same error. I have tested the ROMS on an emulator on my computer and they all work fine.
I am thinking that maybe the version of the image I downloaded might not be compatible with my older Raspberry Pi.
