hi guys, i don't think that there is a good working retro games emulator that works on enigma2

maybe some devs can take a look at this goos thing and try to bring it to our devices

the emulator works on almost any existing OS at this time

so... why not the Enigma2 also !

Hi,

 

A STB is not a PC there is indeed a CPU that it is called a SoC which is specifically designed to handle DVB signal and has some build-in multimedia decoding capabilities, so it doesn't have all the same capabilities as a PC.

So it doesn't really make sense willing to run every possible Linux/PC/OSx application on a STB.

Hi, I'm running with success RetroArch in my E2.

I think the most important is the hardware and the architecture (arm/armhf I think is more easy).

 

For now I'm using a Hisilicon Hi3798Cv200 with 2GB RAM.

But I think is possible apply this for other's architectures.

HI3798CV200 is actually the same as HI3798MV200 which is used by some Openpli enigma2 boxes.

So can you inform a bit more how you install it and which sources are used to build it.

So do you have an openembedded packages which you build?

I assume you used the follow packages for build https://github.com/c...s/meta-libretro

 

I will try next week to build and see if I get it work. Only issue is X11 which I do not prefer :(

I wonder how it will work with remote or that you need a gamepad.

Sorry of delay, HI3798MV200 and HI3798CV200 have a compatible SDK but I'm using E2 long before have a for HI3798MV200.

I maked a Debian 9.5 rootfs and compiled all enigma2 packages, now I can compile all direct in my box.

 

For RetroArch, I'm not need make big changes I only create a UDEV rule for put my RC as a KEYBOARD for RetroArch detect this.

I'm using OpenGL 3.1 (mali-fbdev) and created a launcher based on Kodi Launcher of E2.

I only use remote for navegate on MENU, to play game is better gamepad.
