For all those who want to use Recalbox 6.0 with the GameHat, here’s how to do it:

  1. Write the img of Recalbox 6.0 on your SDCARD.
  2. From a pc/mac, plug the SDCARD and add those parameters to the “config.txt” file at the root of the card :
    hdmi_force_hotplug=1
    avoid_warnings=1
    max_usb_current=1
    hdmi_group=2
    hdmi_mode=1
    hdmi_mode=87
    hdmi_cvt 640 480 60 6 0 0 0
    hdmi_drive=2
    display_rotate=0
  3. Connect one gamepad (wired) and fill in the wifi settings.
  4. When connected on your network, via the web interface (or SSH) edit the “recalbox.conf” like this:
    Change statement controllers.gpio.enabled=0 to controllers.gpio.enabled=1
    Change statement controllers.gpio.args=map=1,2 to controllers.gpio.args=map=5 gpio=5,6,13,19,21,4,26,12,23,20,16,18,-1
  5. Disconnect the gamepad and reboot the recalbox.
  6. After the reboot push one button and configure !
