Check my RetroPie version

How to check which RetroPie version I'm on?. It works (I am using v4.8, 2022 Mar 13); it matched with the information on the download page. However, the Raspbian version is 10 (buster) according to "/etc/os-release" so the Kodi is version 18 not 19.

$ cd ~/RetroPie-Setup
$ git show

Another way is to run RetroPie setup program. See a screenshot How To Backup and Update Your RetroPie Image.

Exit a game

Press HotKey and Start button. Another way is "Esc" or "Esc + enter" on a keyboard. This helps exiting games from N64 where 'select' is not one of its buttons. Exit every Emulator with "escape" key and Setting the ESC Key as the Exit Emulation Button, ESC key doesnt Exit emulator

ROM

ROM size

On my 128 GB SD card du -sh /media/crucial/RetroPie/roms/* | sort -hr | head or ncdu ~/RetroPie/roms (interactive) shows the top folders taking most space

  • dreamcast: 24 GB (28 folders)
  • psx: 13.4 GB (111 folders)
  • arcade: 9 GB (2988 files)
  • fba: 8.2 GB (1350 files)
  • n64: 7.2 GB (470 files)
  • mame-libretro: 7 GB (2334 files)
  • gba: 6.3 GB (932 files)
  • segacd: 4.7 GB (23 files)
  • amiga: 3.6 GB (4280 games)
  • snes: 3.0 GB (3362 games)
  • neogeo: 2.8 GB (187 games)
  • TOTAL: 106 GB, 118649 items

Transfer ROMs

ROMS location

The SD card has 2 partitions: boot and retropie.

ROMs are located in retropie/home/pi/RetroPie/roms directory.

$ ls '/media/brb/retropie/home/pi/' 
bgm  coolcv_mapping.txt  gunconf  RetroPie  RetroPie-Setup  v3

$ ls '/media/brb/retropie/home/pi/RetroPie/' 
BIOS  retropiemenu  roms  splashscreens

Backup/restore

https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Updating-RetroPie/#backup-option-2 (if you don't want to create a sd image you can just back up your BIOS, roms, and configuration files from the samba shares), or back up the /home/pi folder which contains lots of folders (bgm, Desktop, Documents, Downloads, gunconf, Music, Pictures, Public, RetroPie, RetroPie-Setup, Templates, v3, Videos)

(Update) The procedure below is not optimal especially the SD card is very large. I only need to back up the retropie/home/pi/RetroPie/roms folder.

sudo umount /media/brb/retropie
sudo umount /media/brb/boot
sudo dd bs=4M if=/dev/sdc | pigz -4 > RetroPie-128g.img.gz

# Restore
gunzip --stdout raspbian.img.gz | sudo dd bs=4M of=/dev/sdb

This assumes the 2nd SD card is the same or has a larger capacity. For example if my source is samsung 128GB and the target is another samsung 128GB but a different model, I got the following error.

$ gunzip --stdout RetroPie-128g.img.gz | sudo dd bs=4M of=/dev/sdc
[sudo] password for brb: 
dd: error writing '/dev/sdc': No space left on device
0+3763699 records in
0+3763698 records out
128043712512 bytes (128 GB, 119 GiB) copied, 3455.3 s, 37.1 MB/s

The fdisk command shows the reason:

# source sd card (larger capacity)
sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdc
Disk /dev/sdc: 119.38 GiB, 128177930240 bytes, 250347520 sectors

# another sd card (a little smaller capacity)
sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdc
Disk /dev/sdc: 119.26 GiB, 128043712512 bytes, 250085376 sectors
