Well I tried it, and guess what?
The other emulators work ok, but ST performance is horrendous.
I thought it might be the usb sound card slowing things down, so I drove out to get my original Pi.
Same deal, ST emulation is awful in that too.
I'm considering a Pi3, but I'm not sure I'm going to go that route.
I had the same DVI problems with the Zero that appear to plague all Pi's - the dreaded flashing screen.
I went through this with my original Pi, and they don't appear to have fixed it with the Zero.
Going with the advice I received on the Pi forum, I tried everything, so I ended up spending loads of money on different hdmi cables, power supplies, powered hubs etc, and I even bought another monitor.
I tried turning up hdmi output in increments all the way up to 11, different refresh rates etc etc.
I'm kinda sick of going through all this, and I fear that buying a Pi3 would just be buying myself a headache.
Another option is to use a proper PC with retropie like I do with my tv console, but unfortunately that means I won't be able to use the case I want (inadequate cooling).
The only other option is
to buy an hdmi monitor, but this is also problematic.
It's hard to get a 4:3 (or 5:4) monitor with hdmi input, besides which it's another expense on top of a Pi3.
Looks like my cheap, simple project has turned into a bit of a nightmare.
The Raspberry Pi Foundation should really be a little more honest in its documentation and admit that dvi often won't work.
I know this would mean less revenue for them.
I expect a lot of people buy a Pi because they think they can use their exisiting monitor, but it's rather unethical.
Also the fanboys on the forums should be a bit more honest about the dvi problems instead of sending people on wild goose chases and recommending they buy more hardware to fix a known problem with the Pi itself.
I ordered a vga adapter.
I'm not really expecting it to work properly, but I have to have one more crack at this before I throw in the towel.
If it works with the Zero, I'll buy a Pi3 to get Hatari working properly.
If not, I'll post a video on YouTube of me immolating the Zero in my aluminum foundry :D
hey guys. just joined that community. Bought a Pi3 a week ago. loved it so much went to buy another today and bought the tinkerboard instead. found a video of someone getting retroarch to work anyone have any luck finding out he did it?
just curious, why'd you choose ipac2 over Xin-mo or any of the zero delay USB encoders? I haven't used any of the USB encoders before, but I've seen good reviews for the other ones and they are generally cheaper. Is there a reason to get the Ipac over the others? I ask because I might be needing a USB encoder soon.
I have both the NES30 and the NES30 Pros - I love the NES30 for NES/SNES games, it's well built, and responsive - NES30 Pro on the other hand, its only reason for existence is analog, and the analog is awful, and they feel kinda "meh" in your hands so they just sit in a drawer unused - PS3 controllers work great for analog stuff which is really only on N64/PS1 games in my case.
So I am just seeing all this for the first time. I am putting together an NES classic styled project, that uses this script to play menu music, but I was wondering if there is a way to (from a menu or something) select the music playing as a choice. Some people might not want to have it. I am planning on giving these away at functions and meetings and stuff for people to enjoy, and trying to tweak the thing to make it as idiot-proof as possible. I would like to remove any configuration menus and such but also somehow give the user a way to toggle to menu music off if they choose.
I glanced over this post the other day, but now have read it properly, and need to make this clear - Whether or not you (or I) condone the actions of someone, that language and sort of personal attack is not acceptable here. You should know better.
Do it again and you will face a permanent ban.
