    Hi All

    Hoping that someone can point out what I’m doing wrong here. I’ve installed the latest version of RetroPie, fully updated etc. and I’m trying to use the UAE4All Amiga emulator that’s included.

    I’ve got the kick.rom in the roms directory (and also in /opt/retropie/emulators/uae4rpi, but I think that’s unnecessary) and have linked a rom image to df0.adf

    When I start the emulator (/opt/retropie/emulators/uae4rpi/uae4all), I get a blank screen. However the emulator is running as if I press the space bar, I

      do

    get sound.

    Same is true if I don’t link a rom image, I get a blank screen with no Workbench hand logo.

    I’m using HDMI output too.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Simon

    Same here. It actually works perfectly in X11, but there is no video output when running in the framebuffer (that is, “text” mode).

    Does somebody know were to grab an old binary to test?

    i’m having this issue now too. it was only since i updated the raspberry pi using apt-get.

    Worked fine previously, but now no video output. Can hear the sounds from the amiga games however and can exit the emulator too. doesn’t seem to have effected anything else :/

    it might help (replacing stella with uae4all)

    changing the output mode may help (lowering or increasing depending). Enabling dispmanx may help too.

    there are some problems with some recent uae4all changes I made so I need to fix them up also (to do with launching / parameters)

    I’ve made some uae4all changes.

    If you update the RetroPie-Setup script, and then do

    
    sudo ./retropie_packages.sh uae4all configure
    

    it will update the es_systems.cfg and fix up the launching script too which was broken. you can then do

    
    sudo ./retropie_packages.sh dispmanx
    

    and configure the uae4all emulator to use the dispmanx SDL. this should solve the black screen issue.

    note that paths have changed recently, so if you haven’t updated for some time, you should nuke /opt/retropie and do a new fresh binaries install.

    Hi,
    i have installed the latest RetroPie 2.6.0 for the PI2 (from this Site) and updated the UAE4All over Source….
    When i start the Emulator, i see only a black screen and nothing happens.
    Are there any Solution for the Problem?
    Thanks in advance…

    did you try it first without updating ? the 2.6.0 image has the latest version pre-installed.

    Just to confirm – when you say “start the emulator” do you mean launching a game, or you don’t even get the uae4all menu / config up first ?

    i mean launching a game.
    The Uae4all itself starts, i put a game in Df0 und press “reset”, then only a black screen appears.
    i tried it without a update too (Write the Image to an SD Card)

    Black screen that looks like no kickstart. You need to copy kickstart 1.3 over to bios folder with an FTP Client. Uae4all does not come with kickstart 1.3 for legal reasons ;)

    it does come with the aros kickstart substitute though which works for many games.

    Encounted the same issue as schattenmeister.

    Uae4all starts with configuration screen, inserted an adf in Df0, make sure 1.3 rom is selected (I have kick13.rom in /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS folder). Press “reset”, it goes into a black screen.

    (uae4all is running, I can see it from the top process list, just the screen is not shown up)

    Test kick13.rom in winuae on pc first…my working kickstart is 512kb in size

    Press F4 or use Putty and enter….

    sudo chown -R pi /opt/retropie/emulators/uae4all/kickstarts/

    Then FTP your kick13.rom to the kickstart directory.

    UAE4ALL worked fine out of the box for me (using clean 2.6.0) image.
    My setup is here:

    Exactly which folder have you copied it to and which game are you trying to run?
    Can you run other games?

    The kick13.rom are in /opt/retropie/emulators/uae4all/kickstarts/
    A Sample Game are in /opt/retropie/emulators/uae4all/roms/

    i have copy the image with win32imager to a SD Card.
    Then in Putty sudo chown -R pi /opt/retropie/emulators/uae4all/kickstarts/
    copy the kick13.rom in the folder and the sample game in the other
    Press Reset and then Black Screen….

    Check the video for the paths.
    The only place I had to put my kick13.rom was /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS/

    The only place I had to put the game was /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/amiga/

    This is from a clean 2.6.0 image downloaded from this site (I havent separately tried updating the binaries).

    so,
    i have copy a clean 2.6 Retropie Image to sdcard
    Boot the Raspberry, setup PS3 Controller.
    Then in Putty set the Folder Right…
    with Filezilla, i copy the kick13rom and kick31.rom to the folder that you wrote.
    copy a sample game in adf format(battle chess) to the another folder that you wrote.
    Start the Amiga Emulator
    as configuration i use Amiga 1200, insert the Game,press reset and…. black screen….
    in Winuae on my PC all Kickroms and the Game are working…
    i have no idea whats wrong. :(

    I dont change any permissions like you do here
    “Then in Putty set the Folder Right…”

    Can you try a game I checked in the demo (i.e. Turrican 2) to see if it is the ADF that this version of UAE4ALL has an issue with?

    Also, try using A500 as that is often more compatible. (Also try the free AROS rom option).

    The video above is literally all I did to get it working, maybe try to replicate that and see if there is an issue for you.

    I have just tried this
    – Wrote RetroPie 2.6.0 (v2) to an SD card
    – Booted up and quit Emulatoion Station and got back to a terminal prompt
    – Expanded disk to get full size
    – Copied “Battle Chess.adf” to /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/amiga (FTP)
    – Copied “kick13.rom” to /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS/ (FTP)
    – Ran Emulation Station and selected Amiga which opened UAE4ALL
    – Clicked “A500” with mouse, selected Battle Chess for DF0
    – Clicked “Save config for current game”
    – Clicked “Reset”

    It then booted me into a 1.3 workbench and I had to double click a disk icon to run Battle Chess, but it then worked fine.
    I just tried it with AROS and it doesnt seem to like it.

    Perhaps either your ADF or kickstart file is not compatible with this version of UAE4ALL?

    Im guessing we are using different versions of uae4all. I put my kick13.rom in the kickstart folder and manually select 1.3 radio button in the gui… this means changing permissions. The other way is to to select custom button and then click Browse Rom to the bios folder and select kick13.rom.

    I’m using the stock version that comes with 2.6.0 – I havent updated it from the one in that image.
    In that version, there are symbolic links to the BIOS directory which is where they should be – no permission changes needed. Works well for me.
    /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS/kick13.rom

    When I had issues with mine, it was the kick13.rom. I had to use the 512kb version, the first one I used that had issues was only 256kb. It also had to be called kick13.rom in lower case in the bios share.

    still cant get the joystick working though…

    I have done it:

    – Wrote RetroPie 2.6.0 (v2) to an SD card
    – Booted up and quit Emulatoion Station and got back to a terminal prompt
    – Expanded disk to get full size
    – Copied “Battle Chess.adf” to /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/amiga (FTP)
    – Copied “kick13.rom” to /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS/ (FTP)
    – Ran Emulation Station and selected Amiga which opened UAE4ALL
    – Clicked “A500″ with mouse, selected Battle Chess for DF0
    – Clicked “Save config for current game”
    – Clicked “Reset”

    Result: Black screen :/
    On WinUAE the Workbench boots and all is fine… (with the same kick and game)

    I can only presume we have different ADF and/or kick rom files.

    I have the same issue.

    Fresh retropie 2.6 image, kick13.rom and adf copied into /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS and /home/pi/RetroPie/roms folder and I can verified in SSH that it symbolic linked correctly.

    When I start any adf, it gives me a black screen. I can see the process uae4all is running from ps. Thus, it should be screen/framebuffer issue.

    May be the only difference is I am using Berryboot. But, I manage to get most of the emulators working, MAME, Atari ST, Macintosh, Neo Geo, GBA, Playstation. THe only one not working so far is uae.

    I have installed the rasbian image and installed the uae4all 2.5.3.4-1 and all is fine.
    i can start the Emulator and play Games.
    i don’t know, why the uae4all in the retropie image won’t work….

    i think i have the Solution for my Problem.
    Other Users have same Problem, that they have black screen, because they have a ps3 Controller plug in the raspberry.
    i have a ps3 Controller too…. =)

    This not only happen with ps3 controller.

    I have a generic wired USB game controller, uae4all will show black screen if the controller is plugged in.

    Any fix?
