GIMX 7.1 - Raspbian Stretch release?

Post by TroutDeep » Sat Feb 10, 2018 4:57 am

Hi Matlo,

Thanks for making this wonderful software / hardware design.

Will there be a Stretch release for 7.1? I've been using 6.11 successfully with the 6.11 Stretch image and would like to update if possible.

Thanks again!

Hi,

Strech is now the version supported by GIMX. In gimx-launcher, click on "Help > Update" and proceed with the update.

Hello I ordered an adapter the other day, it was shipped today. I also received my pi3 today an was going to install the gimx launcher. I'm a running stretch. I can't find a tutorial on how to install on a pi. Can someone point me in the right direction. Thank you

The easiest way to install GIMX on RPi is to download the armhf package from latest release and to double click on it. Note that an Internet connection is required when installing the package.

Thank you! Got the launcher an everything installed. Is there anything else I need to do, other than plug in the adapter? Will be using it on an Xbox1.

There is a current limitation for the Xbox One: you need to have a controller v1 (without 3.5mm jack plug).

Yes I'll work on it soon. But I can't provide a release date.
