@dankcushions I tried a different random rom (1080 snowboarding) and it was fine. if those settings aren't 1s I should look at can you suggest others that may help better? I've read about overclocking the pi3 but that seems a bit drastic this early on.
I've changed to hi res emulator and 1280x720 50hz and conquers ran alright at the beggining but starting to get laggy again just before the menu. lots more playing will come i'm sure now I'm getting far more familiar with things.
I use xin-mo on my setup along with quite a few of my buddies, works perfect when adding the correct line to cmdline.txt
I been using the 18-pin version. If you have the 20pin (moffett listed different code to add)
Please let us know if it works.
Hopefully newer Raspberry Pi's will come out to run some critical arcade games like Mortal Kombat 2/3/UMK3 and Killer Instinct. My arcade machine was built thinking these would be available to run but they are not.
i have mk2 and umk3 running fine using lr-mame2003. umk3 has a graphical bug on the tier select screen, but thats it. it never shows up again. both run at full speed. mk3 on the other hand runs at about 5 fps, but who needs it if umk3 works?
edit: correction, i just ran umk3 a few times to check, and the tier select graphics bug is gone. not sure if thats due to running it from emulation station instead of attract mode (shouldnt make a difference) but everything runs and looks great.
Was really looking forward to the announcement hopeing to bag a decent hybrid console that I could play when the partner want's to use the telly rather than using my laptop to hookup to the PS4 or xbox. Massivly dissapointed in the screen resolution and life of the device most £50 windows tablets have the same res screens and hdd space and 3 hours of life whilst playing zelda is pretty poor.
Think it's going to cause quite a few problems when people start realising that it's not a very portable device and it ends up being another last gen console rather than a new gen.
I have a problem with mame4all rom running over network (windows).
Setup RPI3 with modified autostart.sh. Latest Retropie version.
Everything works fine except mame 0.37b5 roms. If same romset placed on sd card without network, it works fine. Over network emulator starts a rom, displays rom-art, screen turns black and retropie goes back to mame folder. Emulatior lr-imame4all
Runcommand.log error: line 981: 1374 Segmantation fault
Does anybody know to solve this problem?
Yeah, ppsspp is a good bit faster and more accurate than lr-ppsspp. Some games you can run well at 1080p, some will run certain sections well, some will just choke. Depends on the game.
Pi2 I have played:
Hotshots Tennis at 1080p full speed except when the camera zooms in on the tennis court.
Gurumin at 1080p, parts of town are very slow. Inside the house is full speed, as are most gameplay levels.
I can test more later. Will have to figure out how to use the USB rom location. Games are big. :D
Definitely use ppsspp instead of lr-ppsspp. But keep a keyboard handy. You can't exit to the menu with the joystick.
@edm203 I use an iBuffalo SNES or a wired Xbox 360, depending on the game. They are both excellent, responsive controllers. I much prefer wired controllers, they take a lot of the configuring and faff out of it. I like the look of the 8bitdo range but I have read about so many people having issues with them.
@goodpi31 i use the pi 3. Most normal pc's cant charge them. Sony's tablets, pc's and playstations can charge them fine. I havent had any issues with it. You need to configure your controller with the cable plugged in if you want to use it plugged in as well as bluetooth mode.
