@jrb555 My main pc monitor is at 1440p and I use RetroPie on a separate smaller 480p. Love those pixels, part of the charm, but only if its sharp image. Your tv or monitor have to scale up the 720p to its native 1080p and that is where blurryness comes. If you play on a native 720p monitor, the pixels will be sharp.
The disk I plan on leaving attached. I'll look into options for mount; is option "nofail" supposed to mean that it will give up trying to mount if it is non-available?
the top four are nmbd.service 10.8s and hciuart.service 6.4s
then raspi-config.service 1.3s and smbd.service 1s
one is the net bios name server i was pretty sure I dont use that so i disabled it with
sudo systemctl stop nmbd
sudo systemctl disable nmbd
I do use bluetooth, It seems like it is unusually slow. Reading dmesg:
uart-pl011 3f201000.serial: no DMA platform data
brcmfmac: power management disabled
and brcmfmac: brcmf_c_preinit_dcmds; look like firmware warnings
raspi-config is probably nominal, though I don't know what it is calling or doing at startup.
@RedBatman No pc release? :-( I never played Crash Team Racing, but always thought that it looks good. The only Mario Kart clones I played and finished was Diddy Kong Racing and Sonic & All-Stars Transformed, and it was worth it. I would play CTR too. I wonder why it does not get a pc port, it comes for all consoles and the Crash Bandicoot remaster also got pc release.
someone could look at the file and tell me what is wrong. Again, it looks quite OK but in ES it does not.
I quickly checked the file and it seems ok, as you said.
I noticed the image "size" (dimension of the page in inkscape) is quite big compared to usual system svgs. ES does scale it but sometimes that scaling has issues.
I would suggest you open one of the existing ES system.svgs (or any of my custom system icons) , save it with a different name, delete all objects (making it "empty"), open your sinclair svg, select all objects and paste them in the "empy" svg, group all objects and save.
That should fix your problem.
@rtissera thanks for the work you did up to now - I looked over your tree, but wasn't able to use your changes directly due to different flags (and hardcoded platform etc). However, am happy for any contributions / suggestions.
Note I am still building testing the emulators, so it's early stages still.
I got it working!! you may close this thread if need be or leave it open for everyone to see if this can help them anyways.....
i feel really dumb but live and learn right anyways so i extracted the iso from the gz file using 7zip which i did not read up on stupid of me anyways i used winflash tool and burned the img on to my sd card and it corresponded took the retropie and finished :)
still does not explain why at first it would not take my sd card when i flashed it and put NOOB on it as i was not burning on to the sd because it states it does not require a burn but anyways :D
@Luca1 you do need to go into retropie menu and go into run command and disable joystick so you would need a keyboard to change video mode and emulator. You MUST do that before this next step. To remove the retropie menu you need to go to /opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation/gamelists/ and find the folder "retropie" and put something like an exclamation point in it. So it will look something like "!retropie" now they cant get into anything they shouldnt. Just remember once you set it into kids mode you can get it back to normal mode with the konami code by pressing up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right b, a, start.
