Could someone explain to me why amiberry is seen as more plug and play compared to puae, and is the recommended emulator here? Everything I've thrown at puae (lha and hdf) seems to work, I get access to the lovely CRT shaders, and I'm probably going to have to mess about with config on a per game basis for either anyway? Amiberry seems way more of a pain in the arse on several levels, to me - and that's not even considering the strange resolution switching issue I'm getting.
I'm considering just binning it off and going with puae; am I going to regret that for some reason I've yet to experience?
Make sure your RetroArch works, this is not an Emulationstation problem. Also, this is a RetroPie forum, not a general RetroArch forum - you might want to try the libretro forums if you have problems using RetroArch on Windows.
I also have the same condition with the Pi 3B+ and NESPi+ case running most recent RetroPie 4.4 release. It seems to happen with all wireless dongles connected in to the NESPi case ports (wireless Keyboard, and Xbox 360 adapter for sure). I found a couple different threads in the forum about it and I believe they found the reason, https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/2408, and I believe they were working on a fix, but I have not seen the true fix anywhere.
(If anyone has it and a step-by-step, I'd be grateful)
**I did find a temporary workaround though, without having to revert to previous Pi versions-
Use another USB hub (like a laptop 4-port) to connect to the NESPi case, and then connect your devices in to that. It appears to cancel out whatever mismatch there is between the pi and NESPi USB hub.
It's a bit unsightful but it prevents a lot of re-imaging and reversion to a previous release. Hopefully a solution will be embedded in to the next release as the NESPi case is great!
*I have been successful using either an Insignia 4 port USB2.0 Hub (N5-PCH5420) and also with a Sabrent 4 port USB3.0 Hub (HB-MNBW). Not sure if a powered USB hub will do the same but worth a try before frustrating yourself to no avail looking for a solution.
My devices connected were a Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless adapter, and Logitech K400r wireless USB keyboard.
