RetroPie Image with Built-in Support for USB Audio, GPIO Controller Inputs, and DPI

I have tested these RetroPie images myself and included all the necessary software and settings.

Download and extract the compressed file using 7-zip.

These images should work with the tinkerBOY Controller v3.0 without changing anything.

In order to use the Adafruit Retrogame program for the GPIO controller inputs with the tinkerBOY Controller v2.0.1, v1.1, or v.1.2 you just need to uncomment the line # /usr/local/bin/retrogame & from /etc/rc.local and edit the file at /boot/retrograme.cfg to match your GPIO configuration.

The tinkerBOY DPI Adapter v1.0 also works with these images out of the box.

  6. I just finished my first gameboy zero using the tinkerboy 2.0.1 and it is running, but the controls are not working. Is it necessary to use the pressure built image to get them working? I am able to plug in my USB keyboard to navigate, but I’m not able to use the tinkerboy pad.

  7. I know the official RetroPi 4.4 has a firmware bug that causes composite video out to not work. Does this custom image have that issue as well? If so, how can I use the latest 4.4.1 official firmware and install the drivers necessary for this board?

    1. You must be talking about the 4.5 version. This image is 4.4. 😊

  8. Does this v4.4 include your battery monitoring script?

    1. No you have to install it manually with the guide at https://www.tinkerboy.xyz/battery-monitoring-for-tinkerboy-controller-v3/.

  9. Hi tinkerBOY, thanks for all the stuff I got in the past week. I was wondering if it is possible to get a stand-alone package of the setting from that retro pie image?

    I’m wanting to use a tinkerboard s for more power. Thanks very much.

    1. Yes I will be doing that soon.
