@Guto-Du it's a possibility it's defective. Try over volting the pi (without over clocking) to see if it's more stable. If it is then your pi isn't stable at factory settings and should be sent back for replacement. I have seen multiple reports of pi zero's not stable at factory clock speeds. I think the quality control on the pi zero might be slightly less than other models. Probably because it's a $5 computer.
I don't know. First of all, I've never used mame4all. I use advmame and lr-mame2010, using the roms/arcade/ directory to select any of the arcade emulators to use with runcommand.
There probably is a configuration to edit for mame4all, but I don't know anything about the ESC menu or why it would freeze.
If the navigation key binds get misappropriated, then a solution would probably be finding then editing or deleting the bindings manually, using the terminal. There may be other ways to reset default binds dependent on the emulator and configs.
@garradam not safely shutting down can potentially cause corruption of your sd card. If your pi freezes you should remotely access your pi through ssh and safely shutdown that way. Often times it's only emulation station that isnt responding. There are a number of easy to use ssh apps for smartphones that are very convenient to use.
If anybody sees anything interesting in there please let me know. I can't figure anything out in this file sadly.
I don't know if it's of any interest but I plugged in my USB pendrive, ran RetroPie, hit F4 to exit EmuStation, ran the command dmesg > /tmp/dmesg.txt, ran emulationstation, played a PSX game which froze pretty much instantly, exited the game, took the file via WinSCP and there it is.
Does anyone have know about this problem? Thank you for your help.
Looks like an insufficient power problem - the RPI underclocks itself not having enough power. Take the PI out of the case and do some testing to see if you get the same problems. The NesPI cases are notorious for this kind of problems.
Well something happened that might point to the cause of the problem. I have been using it for the past 3 hours no issues. I decided to plug some earphones in so obviously, the board moved a bit. Well as soon as the board moved, it started to disconnect the controllers and a few seconds after, it froze! So now I think it is in fact the power cord from the PSU that's causing all these issues! I'll replace it and see if it goes away...
@mitu na all roms are running on the sd card, 32GB sandisk. I have a few of them that I cycle through during updates etc. All of them have shown the same behavior. I haven't changed default config.txt.
I'm using an LCD monitor with hdmi, not sure if that was the screen question :)
Also the map message only happens with Galaga so far, Berzerk does not show that it just completely freezes, screen does not go black like Galaga does.
