Help with Emulation in Kodi 18.3 on Raspberry Pi 3B+

#1

I’m trying to get Sega Genesis emulation working on my OSMC Kodi 18.3 (Raspberry Pi 3B+), but I seem to be having difficulties with RetroArch. I’ve noticed that Gaming was included in 18.3 but maybe I’m going about this the wrong way. Any How To suggestions? It seems it might be an emulator issue, as I’m seeing an error of “No compatible emulators found” when I try and launch a ROM.

You got to enable the Emulator first:

Settings->Add-on Browser->My Add-ons->Game add-ons->Emulators

Enable Sega - MS/GG/MD/CD (Genesis Plus GX)

When you do you will see which file types that the Emulator supports.

Thank you! I was looking in the wrong place.

Now I’m getting a controller dependency error.
I’m planning on using a PS4 controller either wired or wireless on my Raspberry Pi 3B+, but I think the error is related to the controller profile:

====
Failed to play game
Add-on is incompatible due to unmet dependencies
Missing: game.controller.genesis.mouse

Doesn’t matter. Just go install the Genesis mouse profile.

#5

Settings -> Add-on Browser -> Install from repository (kodi repo if you got more installed) -> Game add-ons -> Controller profiles

install those that you need, there are often more then one controller profile needed for one emulator. To know which you got to check the dependencies of the emulator in question

To avoid this situation later or the need to check dependecies, I just install all controller profiles =)

Perfect! Thanks for your help, I’ll give this a try when I get home.

Works now. Thanks for your help!
