If you are running retropie with PAL composite output, when exiting a NES game to go back to the emulation station menu the display cuts out. You can still select and load games, at which point you will get a picture again. No problem when booting up for the first time, only after exiting a game.
This is with PAL output set by altering the config.txt in the boot directory by uncommenting the sdtv=2 line, and by changing the runcommand parameter for the NES emulator in the es_systems.cfg
This problem doesn’t happen when running NTSC.bmocParticipant09/03/2014 at 01:40Post count: 5
Ok so I hooked this up to a display capable of all video modes, when exiting a game and going back to emulation station the display output is lost completely in PAL mode, comes back if a game is selected. Absolutely no problem with NTSC output. So there is definitely some kind of bug here. Any chance of someone looking at this?bmocParticipant09/02/2014 at 16:27Post count: 5
Ok so I figured out I can uncomment the sdtv=2 line in the config.txt in the boot directory and that makes everything start up ok, phew! But I still have the problem that the display stuff up when I exit a game by pressing the escape key. Emulation station is still running, because if I press a button it will load another game just fine, but I can’t see anything.
When I was running on an NTSC capable screen I never had this problem. Is there anywhere to specifically set the video mode for emulationsation? Is it possibly reverting to the wrong video mode when I exit a game?
If anyone can solve this for me I will love you forever, I’m so close to having this thing running perfectly, this is the last hurdle!
