Ended up finding out that in /boot/config.txt changing hdmi_safe=4 boots me up in 720p, which really helps keep the CPU caught up.
Went ahead and tried overclocking with volt=6, assuming that under volting is why the pi was locking up. This was the biggest boost, everything runs great and no lockups.
Changed hdmi_safe back to default (uncommented out) and so far everything is running great at 1080p. So it looks like overclocking is really the best way to get it working properly on RetroPie 2.5 with the Raspberry Pi B.frikkParticipant02/10/2015 at 15:16Post count: 5
The new image works great, thank you! But apparently you can’t have it all…
I’m no longer crashing, and the system appears to be stable. This is good!
However, on 2.5 (compared to 2.3) SNES is slow, and the sound is sputtery. I’d say about 15% slower than full speed. Interestingly enough, 2.3 was perfectly fine and no sound issues.
I’ve tried overclocking, which does help, but I don’t have heatsinks so anything beyond the second overclock setting causes the system to lock up after a few minutes.
I’m going to try disabling “rewind” to see if that helps (from the sound wiki).
I’m looking forward to eventually getting the rpi2, but I’d like to see this working at 100% first! Thanks for the help!
ps: i love that on 2.5, the controller config files are already set up and the select/start exit is already set up too.frikkParticipant02/09/2015 at 23:17Post count: 5frikkParticipant02/09/2015 at 18:07Post count: 5
