This page is for videos I make to help people get their systems going, understand how they work, and resolve issues that may hinder their ability to do what they want.

Note that a lot of the older videos for the older systems including the UberPiMini are now gone from this page. They're still available on my YouTube channel if you need them.

How to connect RetroPie to the WiFi so that you can do all sorts of things.

 

First Boot RetroPie and Controller Config for UberPiSystem

How to hit the ground running with RetroPie. Shows how to configure custom controllers that may not have all the buttons RetroPie offers. Note that now systems ship with the keyboard preconfigured so you don't get this configuration screen out the door. To configure a controller, once in RetroPie you hit Enter on your keyboard. Go down to Configure Input and hit A on your controller. It will ask if you're sure you want to do this. Hit A again. Then just follow the prompts. If you end up at a button the program is trying to configure that you don't have (like if you have RetroLink SNES controllers) just push and hold two buttons at the same time and that button assignment will be skipped. I try to lay out my A, B, X, and Y buttons the same way they are on the SNES controller regardless of what's written on the controller itself; this makes most games more playable.

 

Navigating RetroPie and Basic Controller Config UberPiSystem

How to do basic navigation through RetroPie on the UberPiSystem with a video game controller. Also included is a demonstration of a controller configuration. Now with the systems having keyboard mappings by default, you can use the keyboard to get around in RetroPie as well. Basically, your arrow keys are up, down, left, and right respectively. The A, B, X, and Y buttons are those respectively as well. Left shoulder is 1, right shoulder is 2, left trigger is 3, right trigger is 4, left analog is 5, and right analog is 6.

Peripheral Choices for the UberPiSystem or UberPiMini

Controllers, keyboards, mice, USB hubs, 2.4ghz wireless USB, Bluetooth...this tutorial covers it all so that you can make the right choices when it comes to choosing your peripherals. If you want to know if your peripheral will work with RetroPie, most of the time you can type something like "RetroPie RetroLink SNES Controller" into Google and someone will have a video or web page on it.

 

Full Fly Through on the UberPiSystem EDK 1.0

This video is meant to show you a boot up and navigation through RetroPie. A 32GB model was used for demonstration. It isn't as detailed as some of the more specific videos but it gives you an idea of what's going on with the system. This video includes a visit to both the Raspbian desktop and Kodi Krypton 17.3 with the Hard Nox by Spinz build. Note that this is a little bit of an older video and that the EDK now uses the Misfit Mods build, and the Raspbian desktop has a new look. But the fly through is otherwise pretty much the same.

 

How to Update Hard Nox by Spinz/Misfit Mods Update and Fix Kodi No Config File Error

When you update Hard Nox by Spinz or Misfit Mods on older versions of the EDK v1.0 it might wipe out your configuration file and make it so that you can't get back into Kodi. This video shows how to fix that.

The UberPiSystem vs. the UberPiMini

The UberPiSystem and the UberPiMini are both driven of Raspberry Pi technology but they're different in a lot of ways. It's important that you understand these differences when choosing. The UberPiSystem is more robust and powerful where as the UberPiMini is by far a much more slim choice with a certain, unique appeal. Both systems will make magic happen on your television. It's just a matter of how much you want to spend and how much power and versatility you want.
