@IceChes1 Well even if it is not as versatile as RetroPie it still deserves a place as an alternative to RetroPie just like RecalBox. @Tim-s-up can also just manually install from the latest branch of RetroPie to a Pi 4B if he wants. I guess it comes down to wheater he wants a stable official release from Lakka, or try using the latest branch of RetroPie which is still experimental if he decides to buy a Pi 4B. Otherwise he will be buying a Pi 3B+
@Tim-s-up The extra horsepower that a Pi 4B provides will still improve performance of arcade games and emulation overall. You should get a mucher smoother gameplay and it will be more future proof in hardware. I can only tell you this, that i have tested both SNES and PSX emulation on my Pi4 4GB in Lakka and it runs really well as long as I choose the correct emulator. To begin with I had some sound issues with SNES emulation, but then i changed to the Snes9x emulator and now it works just as good as my Pi 3B with RetroPie, if not even better.
I have also tested an original Super Famicom controller(SHVC-005) with a usb adapter and it works on the Pi 4B in Lakka like it does on my Pi 3B RetroPie setup. This controller is identical in hardware with the original SNES PAL controller. This gives SNES gameplay a much more authentic experience, just like when you will be using arcade joysticks and buttons for arcade games.
@BuZz Thank you. I made some edits to my post above to help prevent silliness. You are correct, it was psyke83 who suggested the change.
Your directions above worked perfectly, as expected and I reverted all of the configuration changes. And scummVM also works as expected.
Thank you for the commit, and for letting us play in your house while you and the team tidy-up the inevitable release.
Hey I just tried this....and it didn’t actually do anything.
I clicked on edit meta data.
Set some stuff to “hidden”
Turned on kiosk mode and they are still there?
As far as I can tell too there’s no difference between kiosk and kid mode either.
I’m currently using the comic theme, maybe it’s something with the theme not supporting the feature?
The sub folder suggestion is working fantastic though.
@bigjohn1979 Please do not post a support request without first reading and following the advice in https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first
Need more info..you updated Retropie completely? What version?
I suspect you didn't update retropie and packages after upgrading perhaps.
You can type emulationstation in a terminal to see if it throws any errors.
Today I added my very first Treasure game to my collection: Dynamite Headdy for Sega Genesis. It’s in very good shape and only mildly suffers from the common Genesis game problem of looking like someone soaked the label in vegetable oil. I don’t know why so many Genesis games do that.
Also: can anyone suggest a good gamebit screwdriver that works well with Genesis games? My orange handled one from Amazon “works” but it often slips from the screws on Genesis games and mars the finish. I’d like to minimize that in the future.
My custom PCBs also arrived today. They're my very first boards that I designed myself, so there's nothing fancy going on, but it looks like they'll fit the ribbon cable that I intended, so hopefully I'll be able to test with a Pi soon.
@BuZz said in rpi4/retropie weekly build scummvm vs lr-scummvm slow graphics:
e rpi4 is still in development - we are not even really ready fo
Thx! I will check. I understand that thing are still in development, but I must say, progress is great.
OK . I guess nevermind. After hours of changing settings and rebooting and searching for answers, I changed a few more things again and rebooted again and now it works. Im not sure what I did to fix it but so far so good, Ill report back if it resorts to its old self.
Yes I have Trackball working with Pi4 on MAME2003
I tried what I found suggested here over and over which was adding to the .cfg file
mame2003-mame_current_mouse_enable = "enabled"
I am going to think you have done this...
Mine still didn't work until I changed the setting in the pic. User 1 Mouse Index change to 2
Also keep in mind there is options to change speeds etc in the TAB menu
