Pisnes – snes9x USB controller setup

20130824-215931.jpg
Was having issues getting pisnes working while on vacation with the snes USB controller i picked up from amazon. The buttons were not setup correctly. Right shoulder was quiting, etc.

I found a nice post online that has the buttons setup already. Just edit the lines on your snes9x.cfg file to the following:

A_1=1
B_1=2
X_1=0
Y_1=3
L_1=4
R_1=5
START_1=9
SELECT_1=8
QUIT=10
ACCEL=7
QLOAD=10
QSAVE=11

Raspberry Pi – Screen Settings

Trying to use a 3.5 screen on composite, with stock raspian settings, is pretty much unreadable. Here are a couple settings that can help out:

 

#Increase the font size used on the Terminal Monitor

  • sudo nano /etc/default/console-setup

FONTFACE=”Terminus”
FONTSIZE=”32×16″

#Rotate the screen in Mame4All for games like pacman and frogger so it uses the entire screen

  • sudo nano /home/pi/emulators/mame4all-pi/mame.cfg

ror=yes

Demo – PiMame on 3.5 screen

Just a quick little video showing Ms Pacman running on a Raspberry Pi. Used the great PiMame image found on Shea Silvermans Blog. Simply start it up, grab your IP, connect with WinScP and FTP the roms over.

I will do a more detailed tut later, but here is a list of the parts i am currently using in this video:

3.5 Inch TFT LCD Monitor for Car / Automobile
12V 2A DC Universal Regulated Switching Power Supply
