Transfer saves without wifi?

Post by Feynamn1 » Wed May 08, 2019 11:22 am

So I finally got my v3 mintypi all set up. The only issue is that for some reason my pis won't connect to my wifi network, and so I'm wondering if it's possible to transfer roms and saves files from one to the other without using ssh. Ideas?

Is it not connecting as in not obtaining an IP or not connecting because you didn't edit the supplicant file?

If you didn't edit the supplicant file, you can take it apart and add a supplicant to connect on next boot.

If you did make a supplicant, make sure it is not accessing a guest network if you are connecting to a home network.

If you get an IP address, make sure you are using FTP and not SFTP as SFTP was disabled in the latest image. Also make sure the WiFi antenna is enabled by holding the function button (below the power button). If it is disabled, keep holding the function button and press left on the dpad and then release both. Lastly, enable FTP in the retropie menu. A full guide is located on the wiki

Another option is to buy a USB female to microusb male adaptor and hook up a keyboard (the more basic, the better) up to it and set it up via the WiFi menu.

But if you really want to do it via USB, there is a blurb on how to do it on the RetroPie Wiki.

Also, this really should be in the support section.
