I started my project by using the 1.8.1 retropie SD card image. after corrupting my SD card a few times early on I started making backup images of my project after each major change or rom addition. my current image is very stable, has tons of roms, and emulationstation’s themes and gameslist.xml files are all nice and pretty….
Question: What is the best practice to ‘upgrade’ my emulators and add N64 (Mupen64Plus-RPi) ?
1. Use the retropie setup script ? If so, which options should I choose ?
2. Download the latest SD card image (1.9.1), and copy my rom folders, .cfg files, theme folders, etc …
This project has been the most (technical) fun I have had in a long time !
It’s fairly easy to update emulators via the script. This shouldn’t affect your retroarch settings so your safe but if might change any final burn alpha control configs so make a copy. Also to install mupen64 select install from sources in the setup script. Try not to wipe and format your sd card too much as it can negatively effect it’s lifespan.
