Hello, I had a few issues with large Sim City cities (sound chopping and lag spikes), however when I set my PI to 420p. Yes emulationstation may look ugly and you have to resize covers but damn it increased the performance of ALL emulators and gaames. Yoshi Island runs at 100% also.
The settings for Emulation Station that come with the RetroPie Script use the script runcommand.sh (https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/blob/master/supplementary/runcommand.sh). This script, in turn, makes use of the tool tvservice that also changes the screen resolution to VGA (640×480) when a ROM is started.
You suggest to change the resolution of Emulation Station itself (before a game is started)?
Yes, but your idea is even better I think except that it takes a few seconds to switch resolution on my TV.
I will try it, thanks.
