My Current Setup

I thought I would post some pictures of my current setup of my PiTendo the last picture also shows my modified SNES controller to work with the NES controller ports.

RetroAchievements on GameBoy Advance

Please be aware that this emulator does seem to be laggy at times.

To get achievements working on the GameBoy Advance core system. You need to install an emulator called MGBA.

You will want to Git Clone mgba into the root directary.

git clone https://github.com/libretro/mgba

Next go ahead and compile the project:

Go to the mgba folder and run the make file

cd mgba
make

this will take a while

Loaded SSH on your PC and connected to your Pi.

Now you will want to edit

/opt/retropie/configs/gba/emulators.cfg

You will want to add this to line 3

mgba="/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -L /home/pi/mgba/mgba_libretro.so --config /opt/retropie/configs/gba/retroarch.cfg %ROM%"

You will also want to move the default to line 4

default="mgba"

save and upload.

Now reload retropie and enjoy GameBoy Advance with achievements.

Hi, Welcome to my blog.

I have started this blog to keep a record of my RetroPie Nes build. I currently have a RP1 running RetroPie version 3.3.1. I have recentally enabled retroachievements  and i think its great that you can earn achievements on such old platforms.

I will update soon.
