I would recommend using lr-fba-nextkitchukParticipant12/11/2015 at 15:50Post count: 207
Sorry I should have supplied a bit more info. I’m using a Pi2 with an overclock of 1000MHz CPU and 450MHz Core.
I’ve tried using both the A500 and A1200 presets and also tried changing up some other CPU/RAM settings.
I checked the github for UEA4ALL2 and the last bit of development was March this year. It would be great to get USB joy pad (Buffalo Snes pad in my case) being able to control the GUI.kitchukParticipant10/15/2015 at 16:42Post count: 207kitchukParticipant10/15/2015 at 13:22Post count: 207kitchukParticipant10/05/2015 at 09:59Post count: 207
I did some further testing and it appears that you need the renamed (bios_U_CD.bin) bios in the same folder as the roms. I edited my es_systems to only show .cue files so they don’t show up in the rom list.
The reason I prefer this emulator is due to an integer scaling issue with Picodrive. Any render resolution higher than 480p results in integer scaling not working. This is essential for using scanline overlays.
This issue is on the Picodrive GitHub (started by myself) but still has not been corrected unfortunately. I also prefer Genesis-GX due to better accuracy and compatibility, especially on the Pi 2.kitchukParticipant09/25/2015 at 16:07Post count: 207
If it’s a new install then you will only see a few emulators straight away. You need to place the roms in the respective folders for them to show up in Emulation Station.
If you want to add more emulators then you can go into the Retro-Pie setup script and install them either form source or binary.kitchukParticipant07/22/2015 at 09:24Post count: 207
Hey guys. You could try creating folders in the specific console folder and then giving them numbers. This will put them at the top of the list every time.
For example if there is multiple users make a folder called ‘1.Name’ and ‘2.Name’ ect and then put the ROMs in those folders. This is one work around to create favourite folders for each user.kitchukParticipant06/23/2015 at 17:16Post count: 207kitchukParticipant06/23/2015 at 16:59Post count: 207kitchukParticipant06/08/2015 at 13:11Post count: 207kitchukParticipant06/03/2015 at 17:53Post count: 207kitchukParticipant06/03/2015 at 10:00Post count: 207kitchukParticipant05/31/2015 at 12:51Post count: 207kitchukParticipant05/29/2015 at 16:56Post count: 207kitchukParticipant05/29/2015 at 10:01Post count: 207kitchukParticipant05/21/2015 at 17:01Post count: 207kitchukParticipant05/21/2015 at 14:27Post count: 207kitchukParticipant05/21/2015 at 12:03Post count: 207
Sounds to me like it might be a power supply issue. As a test, open a SNES ROM and start playing. When the slowdown occurs, is there a square rainbow icon in the top right corner of the screen fading in and out? If so then try a higher rated power supply and the issue will (probably) disappear.
I was pulling my hair out trying to get to the bottom of why all SNES roms and certain MAME ROMs (MK2 / UMK3 mainly) were suddenly running like crap, then I noticed the slowdown only occurred when the rainbow icon appeared. I had recently changed to a different power supply so I changed back to the old one again and performance suddenly became perfect! (And no rainbow icon!).
Hope this helps!
Out of interest, which mame emulator are you using to play MK2 and UMK3?kitchukParticipant05/13/2015 at 09:00Post count: 207kitchukParticipant05/11/2015 at 21:22Post count: 207kitchukParticipant05/11/2015 at 09:47Post count: 207
I’ve been using the 3.00 beta with my new Pi 2 and it works a treat. I’ve not had any issues and as Floob said, the extra options are quite useful. I especially like the emulator switch option by pressing ‘x’ when a game loads. This makes thinks so much more convenient.kitchukParticipant05/10/2015 at 11:58Post count: 207kitchukParticipant05/08/2015 at 15:11Post count: 207
A more user user friendly way if you have a Windows PC would be to use a program called ‘Win32 Disk Imager’. You can put the SD card in your computer and this program can read from it and make a image (.img) file. You can then use this program again to write the image file to a new SD cards of your choice. It will be identical.
I do this to make backups of my RetroPie in case I do something wrong and mess it up.

I noticed this error as of recent. Anyone know what causes this?kitchukParticipant05/05/2015 at 22:27Post count: 207
For lr-Fba I find the crt-Hyllian glow shader looks amazing. Integer on, core provided aspect. It looks like a top notch Sony CRT.kitchukParticipant05/03/2015 at 13:46Post count: 207
Patrick, any luck getting Doom fullscreen with integer on?kitchukParticipant04/27/2015 at 20:51Post count: 207
When playing CPS (MvsC for example) games via FBA-Libretro and having the aspect at 4:3, do you find they are letterboxed with some minor black bars at the top and bottom? I have crop overscan ‘off’ and integer scale to ‘on’. It’s really bugging me. Any ideas?kitchukParticipant04/26/2015 at 23:29Post count: 207
A list of recommended shaders, aspect ratio and settings for each system would be useful in the retropie wiki.kitchukParticipant04/22/2015 at 22:59Post count: 207
I’ve noticed that when using the recommended settings in the first post, Snes seems to fill the screen whereas master system, megadrive does not. Is there a reason for this?kitchukParticipant04/22/2015 at 14:19Post count: 207
thanks for your answer. Not to sound harsh but as I said I have made sure, that it is not my TV producing the lag. Other cores and Limelight in particular show no (noticable) input lag at all.
No problem, but I just thought I’d be sure you knew.kitchukParticipant04/22/2015 at 12:52Post count: 207
[quote=95859]Will try that, thanks gizmo98[/quote]
Are you using a Samsung Smart TV? f so, select the inputs and remain the Pi’s HDMI source to PC. This should also improve any input lag you have. To be honest this would work with most TV’s. If there inst a PC mode look for a Game Mode.
