i will upload a new updated EmulationStation image very soon, if you prefer to wait.

from my facebook post:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/ ... 20/?hc_location=ufi
--------------------------------------------------------
Based on Wang Matt incredible work, here is Ubuntu 15.10 with Retropie and Emulation Station (ES) ready to go.
https://mega.nz/#!tIllhIYY!4-Zbg ... LRaULIkXVKv9PMnNEkE

Installation instructions are basically the same as other distros

1. This image was created in an Orange PI PC, so you will have to find your specific script.bin and uImage files inside /linux/boot and copy them to boot partition (vfat)
2. After the first boot, you might think you're stuck. You're not. The problem is the keyboard i couldn't get it to work inside ES. So have a gamepad plugged in. If you have issues on autodetection, delete /home/orangepi/.emulationstation/es_input.cfg (that might fix it)
3. Time to resize your partition. Quit ES (press start on your gamepad) or kill it from SSH, then run 'sudo fs_resize', password 00, reboot.
4. Copy your roms to /home/orangepi/Retropie/roms/PLATFORM (i put a readme.txt with hints on how you have to name folders), so the next time you reboot, ES will detect your roms automatically (it will take longer depending on how many roms you have)
5. Retroarch libs, scripts and configs are located in /opt/retropie. I stil don't quite understand well how the config files work. There is a general retroarch.cfg and per-core config files, they probably override the general one. Look inside /home/orangepi/.config/retroarch/retroarch.cfg and also /home/orange/.emulationstation/es_ files and edit them as you need.
6. Retropie setup is available in /home/orangepi/RetropieForOrangePI/Retropie-Setup folder. Just run 'sudo ./retropie_setup.sh'. I recommend installing the metadata scraper from experimental packages. Boxes, covers and screenshots will appear when you run ES again.

My knowledge is VERY limited, this image is still rough on the edges, so help and feedback is requested, so we can improve compatibility with Orange PI. Couldn't get the keyboard to work inside ES. There are still a lot of broken scripts.

It's not compatible, also without HW acceleration, emulation's gonna be a tough nut to crack

if there is a fork of the retropie source for the OPiPC, you COULD ask "jernej" (https://github.com/jernejsk) for his code (or find it by yourself) for HW acceleration.
Or/And: how to add H3 support to current RetroPie source.

I realy want to swap devices, OPiPC instead of the (nice/superb/established) RPi2. The OPiPC has more Power and could be a little game-changer.
At the Moment, my OPiPC runs jernejs OpenELEC with 4k video support.

Here you go
https://mega.nz/#!lNwlDJQY!7e21U ... ApulASlPO-gLe0GJ168

Install Retroarch and EmulationStation simple tutorial.docx
This is base on ubuntu_v0.4. Others version may or may not work properly.
Befor you run RetroPie-Setup script.I strongly suggest install necessary packages manualy.
Ex
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y libboost-system-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-date-time-dev libboost-locale-dev libfreeimage-dev libfreetype6-dev libeigen3-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libasound2-dev cmake git libudev-dev dialog

step1 copy LibMali.so
‪#‎backup‬
sudo cp /usr/lib/libMali.so /usr/lib/libMali.def
‪#‎copy‬ Mali r4 package inclued
sudo cp LibMali.so /usr/lib/libMali.so.r4
sudo ln –sf /usr/lib/libMali.so.r4 /usr/lib/libEGL.so

step2 copy include folder (remember backup exists one)
sudo cp include/* /usr/include/ (overwrite)
command maybe wrong . I usually use mc instead

step3 install SDL
unzip –x SDL-mirror-mali-2.0.3.zip(Mali patched)
cd SDL-mirror-mali-2.0.3
./configure --disable-video-opengl --enable-video-opengles --enable-video-mali --disable-video-x11
make –j2
sudo make install
sudo ldconfig

step4 add swap(512M)
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile1 bs=1024 count=524288
sudo mkswap /swapfile1
sudo swapon /swapfile1

Ok.. if everything goes well. Let's fire up retropie_setup
Ex
sudo ./retropie_setup
pachage download Link

Guys I have installed the image on my SD and boots into the main screen of retropie. Now I want to connect on the Orange Pi PC I have, via my PC, using the putty app. I conncect but the credentials are not recognised. I use the Orange's default orangepi/orangepi and root/orangepi , but no luck. I guess this release has different default credentials? Can someone help me please? I am noob into that.
