    I’ve had this problem for ages. It seems to be some inherent problem with Emulationstation. I raised a ticket on the Github for ES but development seems to have ended!

    How is the performance with enhanced resolution on the Pi 3? On the Pi 2 is was quite choppy with low framerate.

    What are the benefits of using Jessie?

    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.

    While they do work, there are some sound issue with Demon Front. I’ve not tested all the other PGS games yet. On a side note, FBA-Next fixes all sound issues with Neo Geo games.

    IGS/PGS games work with the FBA-Next libretro core. You have to bake sure the IGS and PGM bios zip files are in the same directory as the roms.

    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.

    in reply to: Deleted Emulators #106832

    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.

    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.

    Floob, when you use the rice plugin, does it force to 16:9 for you?

    Have you gone into the RetroArch GUI and turned on and selected the overlay?

    patl,

    I am very grateful for the work you have put into these overlays and configs. They look excellent!

    Which overlays would you recommend for Doom and Cave Story?

    I tried using the glslp shader but Retroarch does seem to recognise it. I can only see glsl shaders.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    What would you guys recommend for a conservative overclock for the Pi 2. Nothing too major.

    I don’t want to put too much stress/heat on my new Pi 2!

    Also running v3b2. I have the imame4all-pi standalone, libretro-imame4all core and then two standalone versions of Advancemame (.94 and .106 versions).

    Thanks for the reply. The Libretro MAME port doesnt seem to be included with RetroPie, I just have the imame4all core.

    I’ll give it a spin after work. Cheers.

    [quote=98030]Hi.

    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!

    Cheers

    Out of interest, which mame emulator are you using to play MK2 and UMK3?

    No its a previous install with all my settings. I had already expanded the file system. It just seems odd that with around less than 480mb the script fails to start for some reason, even without actually installing anything extra.

    [quote=97261]Does the new per ROM emulator selection functionality work for MAME with 3.0 Beta ?

    Yes.

    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.

    Yeah sf3 third strike works perfect in fba-libretro but not the standalone emulator. Check the retropie wiki for the correct FBA romset version you need.

    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.

    Heres a Link

    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.

    Patrick, any luck getting Doom fullscreen with integer on?

    Patrick,

    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?

    A list of recommended shaders, aspect ratio and settings for each system would be useful in the retropie wiki.

    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?

    [quote=95866]Hi kitchuk,

    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.

    [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.

    I managed to get mine playing Crysis 3, max settings, 120fps. Its looks fantastic. ;)
