Simple Installation of Recalbox for PI2SCART

This tutorial is taken from Bob retro-rgb.com

Retropie / Lakka Installation (or any software that uses a pre-configured image file):

Using this mod with software like Retropie or Lakka is extremely easy! After formatting, simply load the image via win32diskimager (some machines will require you to right click on the icon and hit “run as administrator” for it to launch properly).

Once it’s finished, open the SD card and find the file “config.txt” in the root.

Open the file, scroll to the bottom and add the code shown above that relevant to your setup.

Save the file, eject the SD card and connect your RPi to your RGB monitor.

That’s it, really easy!!

Recalbox Installation (or any software that installs after first boot):

- After formatting, copy the Recalbox files to the FAT32 formatted MicroSD Card.

- Eject the card and insert it into your Raspberry Pi.

- Boot the Pi with it connected via HDMI to a TV. The first boot must be via HDMI, otherwise it won’t work.

- After the software configures itself, it will reboot to the main screen. Do not go any further until you see the main screen!!!

- Power off the RPi and insert the MicroSD card into a machine that can read Linux partitions.

- Navigate to the “boot” partition and find the “config.txt” file.

- Open the file, scroll to the bottom and add the code shown above that relevant to your setup.

- Save the file, eject the SD card and connect your RPi to your RGB monitor. That’s it!
