Let's make a all in one media center with a raspberry pi 3. this is a media center that can play movies, music, pictures, display the weather, emulate old games, and much more. All you will need is a Raspberry Pi 3, HDMI cord, input method, and power source.

I got my Raspberry Pi 3 from GearBest, Click Here to check it out!

And if you like video's more here you go

Step 1: Flash OSMC to SD Card

TIP: Your SD card should be no less than 8gb for any RPi Image

Download the image from: https://goo.gl/S0FmC1

Download Rufus from: http://goo.gl/IcwRCw

Step 2: Install Retrosmc Setup Script

Open the terminal (do so by exiting OSMC and when the loading screen appears push ESC or connect via SSH[Username: osmc, Password: osmc)

First, we will download the installation script to our pi

cd /home/osmc
wget  https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mcobit/retrosmc...

Next, lets make it executable

chmod +x install-retrosmc.sh

Finally, run the script


Step 3: Install RetroPie

This is easy the pi does it on it's own all you need to do is select binary-based installation. When it's done click cancle until your back to the terminal then

sudo reboot

Step 4: Customize Home Menu

First, go to Settings>Appearance>Skin>Settings>Home>Customize Home Menu

Second, add a new menu button called games

Third, (optional) add a icon (the one i used is here)

Fourth, in the ChangeAction box add a custom action, this will be:


Finally, Save your changes and test it out!!

Step 5: To Add Rom's to RetroPie

Download them from a site like www.loveroms.com put them on a flash drive and use RetroPie's file manager to import them. You also could use FTP if you have it setup.

Step 6: Install Pandora on OSMC

Download the .zip file and put it on a flash drive (download .zip file)

Then to install navigate (System -> Settings -> Add-ons -> Install from zip file) and install it

Step 7: Thanks

<p>Hey man, Im not getting the second screen asking weather i want to install from bin or src. it just says successfully installed and freezes. Whenever i launch the script again it says install successful too.</p><p>After that I dont have the same options you to do to make a Game option in the menu. Im pretty linux savvy and i have no idea why this could be happening. Looks like an awesome solution and id love to get it working. Any thoughts?</p>
I honestly don't know why, did you try reinstalling the image?
<p>nice job. it works really fine. thank's a lot</p>
<p>so how do i add games now that ive done this?</p>
<p>how about if my main OS is retropie..it is posible install OSMC on retropie?so OSMC is optional on retropie..</p><p>Thanks</p>
<p>I think this is what you looking for: </p><p>http://www.multibootpi.com/builds/retropie-kodi-add-on-osmc-only/</p>
I don't believe it is, sorry
<p>Thanks - Been looking for a &quot;How to install RetroPie on OSMC&quot; for a while.</p><p>FYI: Looks like the RetroPie install script has changed a little. There is no longer an option to add &quot;select binary-based installation</p>
<p>So just curious, once in Emulation Station......is there a way to go back to OSMC??? Or do i need to reboot the PI to get back????</p>
Yes you can just open the main menu then select exit
<p>how can we get to this from the confluence skin?</p>
System -&gt; Settings -&gt; Add-ons -&gt; Install from zip file. Hope that's what you need
<p>oops.. I meant get to RetropPie while IN Confluence.</p><p>I installed using your directions and though I can load it from the OSMC skin, I don't see it anywhere to access it or add it as an addon list item.</p>
I think this might help, http://www.trevorayers.com/add-menu-item-confluence-xbmc-kodi/
