Tested x86_64 rc2 to check mame2016 support and in particular recent Cave shooters emulation: everything seems fine! Next tests will be focused on hiscore savings and perfomance optimization. I’ll be writing a forum guide about setting up that.
I had some issues too on booting from usb on different hardwares... didn’t understand why. RC2 seemed not that stable on tasks batocera does very well with the standard release nowadays (es. the odd wifi pw bug reappeared, no sound via hdmi, yesterday it was impossible to run any game but a system restarting solved without changing anything else).
Question: installing the 5.18 RC2 resulted actually in a 5.17 installation, it’s intentional or just a bug?
