    Hey guys,

    I recently got a RPi2 and installed the Retropie 2.5 SD card image from Buzz. But I saw there was a 2.6 build out, so I did the following commands:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    and then I ran the setup script:

    cd Retropie-Setup
    sudo ./retropie_setup.sh

    When the script ran, there were options to “UPDATE Retropie Setup Script” and “UPDATE Retropie Binaries”. I updated the Setup Script first, but after a reboot, UPDATE Retropie Binaries is no longer listed as an option.

    What exactly does UPDATE Retropie Binaries do? I was under the impression this downloaded the latest emulator cores…

    Thanks!

    it used to download/update all binaries, but this was a problem since some binaries required configuration updates which it didn’t do – this was causing problems.

    You can update individual items from menu 5, or use the menu 1 to do a complete binary install which will update the system (backup any custom configs etc first).

    We may add it back again in the future, but in a way that doesn’t cause the problems as before.

    So when I select option 5 “INSTALL individual emulators…” this will download and install the latest emulator binaries? I assume choosing option 5 will also overwrite the config for whichever emulator I choose to install?

    Thanks for your help.
