When I click on the Start button from emulation station, the menu doesn’t appear. Instead, it’s a blank box with a border. If I hit the down button a few times, it shows up as emulationstation v2.0.0-rc1.
Same thing when I hit the menu in a game system.
Any chance anyone knows how to fix?johnesParticipant07/23/2014 at 21:55Post count: 28
since it’s a new install, I know I didn’t edit any config files…trimmtrabbParticipant07/23/2014 at 22:01Post count: 480
Are you using the RetroPie image or installed via the setup script? If the latter something may not have installed correctly.johnesParticipant07/24/2014 at 00:11Post count: 28
Installed via image.
Copied over some ROMs, plugged in controller, recognized it perfect and the menu is just weird now, like I described.
Before it was showing up blank/transparent, the fonts were blocks on part of it…ademccParticipant07/24/2014 at 09:24Post count: 15
Could be a memory split issue. From command line use sudo raspi-config and check options. 256 is the retropie default but I have to reduce to 128 as I have an early model b.johnesParticipant07/24/2014 at 15:18Post count: 28
It seems this might be an emulationstation issue, not retropie.
The FAQ on the ES page said that if ther are white backgrounds for some of the systems, it would indicate an out of memory condition. I have 4 systesm that show white background.
Right now, Sega Genesis, Playstation, and snes show white backgrounds.
It’s not memory though:
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 247 96 150 0 15 48
-/+ buffers/cache: 33 213
Swap: 99 0 99
And the weird thing is that ES takes up 20% CPU, but when I open the menu which is blank, it shoots up to 50%.
If I set the memory split to less tha n256, ES doesn’t start up. If i set it to more than 256, it starts, but it’s just a blank screen.johnesParticipant07/24/2014 at 16:24Post count: 28
OK, so I gave it 256MB split, and this works if i set my tv to vga… setting it higher doesn’t work — seems to be an ES issue, not retropie.trimmtrabbParticipant07/24/2014 at 20:34Post count: 480johnesParticipant07/25/2014 at 05:13Post count: 28
I’ve tried every combination on that list, literally, every one for hdmi_mode. If it’s 720p, not all of the emulators show backgrounds, if it’s less than that then I get a 4:3 screen. There seems no fit to get ES full screen and handle all of the emulators. For the life of me, I can’t see how svg backgrounds are causing this many issues in terms of memory.
