First let me say thanks to everyone in the forums. This is my first post but I have been reading and following along and the info here has been very helpful.
This is my first Pi project and I am having a blast. I have my Retropie up and running and everything seems to be working great. However I do need some help.
I am building a cocktail style system and will be running just the classic arcade stuff. Currently for testing I’m connected to dell monitor in the horizontal position, but for the final install I need a way to rotate the screen to vertical. I have read that I can configure hotkeys to change screen rotation inside the emulator, but is there a way to permanently set emulation station and the roms to run in the vertical.
Any help with this would be great. Sorry of the long post. Thanks in advance.RazorX2014Participant04/26/2014 at 17:22Post count: 41
this is done in two ways from what i remember one is in the config (/boot/config.txt) to rotate the screen on the desktop environment and on load by setting display_rotate= to 2 or something and in the ingame menu when a game is launched by going to the video optionssammeParticipant04/27/2014 at 23:39Post count: 3
Thanks for the info. I looked in the /boot/config.txt file but i didn’t see anything about rotation. It saw several things in it about overscan and HDMI options but no rotation. Was I looking in the wrong place?
I also changed the retorarch.cfg file. I un commented the force rotation options, but no change. Im sure I’m just missing something. I would think that for software designed to play arcade games that this would be a big deal. Because even on the upright cabs I’m sure you would want a vert screen.
Anyway thanks again for your help, hope I can get this figured out. Everything else is working great, just need this last thing.RazorX2014Participant04/28/2014 at 00:41Post count: 41
