I found it out…. I forgot a important step in https://github.com/petrockblog/SNESDev-RPi#installation. which was:
sudo make installservicealexbleksParticipant04/10/2015 at 23:50Post count: 24
Thanks for reply! The GPIO adapter works great on my older Raspberry from 2012, but not on my latest RaspberryPI v2, I have a 1.2 GPIO adapter and set so in Retropie-Setup… Emulationstation is detecting the “gamepad” but there is no response when I press the buttons, same goes for testButton app, it wont register any push
I also tried the update https://github.com/petrockblog/SNESDev-RPi#installation.
Any ideas? :-)alexbleksParticipant04/08/2015 at 19:16Post count: 24alexbleksParticipant05/05/2014 at 09:49Post count: 24alexbleksParticipant10/13/2013 at 16:46Post count: 24alexbleksParticipant10/13/2013 at 09:19Post count: 24

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.alexbleksParticipant10/13/2013 at 09:17Post count: 24alexbleksParticipant10/12/2013 at 23:10Post count: 24alexbleksParticipant10/11/2013 at 11:24Post count: 24alexbleksParticipant10/07/2013 at 21:13Post count: 24
[quote=2882]Yeah it does make emulators run better but I noticed when output is at 480p there is about 5% cut off on the screen. It’s as if the image being displayed is zoomed in ever so slightly. It still does this after I tried changing the aspect ratio on the TV settings. Did you notice this? Try loading up Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening for Gameboy and you can notice away when you start playing the game. [/quote]
yep, same problem here, I miss some of the bottom & top. (with keeping aspect ratio) :-/alexbleksParticipant09/17/2013 at 14:43Post count: 24alexbleksParticipant09/17/2013 at 14:01Post count: 24
this is just a beta and the code need optimization.. I just wrote it quick & fast so my brother could upload games, restore & backup save games, etc….
I highly doubt it will ever be finished since I dont have the time. But hey! Any contributions would be awesome..alexbleksParticipant09/12/2013 at 22:12Post count: 24alexbleksParticipant09/07/2013 at 21:07Post count: 24
I also forgot:
When you upload a game to your raspberry it will automatically check the internal database for its MD5 hash and if it contains information about the ROM game then gamelist.xml in emustation will be automagically udpated with image, text, etc..
