@billy Simply by editing your 1st post and adding something like [Solved] to the title, though I am unsure whether there is a forums recommendation about the how ( @mitu ? ). Some seem to prefer adding it at the titles start, others add it to the end. Most use square brackets, some regular ones.
After downgrading the kernel to 1.20190401-1, I tried to run RetroPie-Setup which upgraded the kernel to 1.20190517-1. Now the overscan settings still apply to both console and ES. I don't know if this is because of the downgrade-upgrade procedure, or because of the changes I made to /boot/config.txt. Anyway I paste here the relevant settings I have in the file:
you can work out the post-overscan resolution by applying the left and right numbers to the width (480), and the top and bottom numbers to the height (320)
it's a bit confusing to me that you have positive and negative numbers in your overscan settings, though. that would seem to shift the image when normally you'd want to shrink it, but it's been a while since i played with that stuff.
@mitu I have tried disabling it, it still doesn't work. I honestly don't know what the resolution is for my screen, I think it's 720x480. I'm actually using a car dvd player, the kind that straps onto the back of a headrest. I'm using the composite output.
EDIT: Ok then, I just rebooted without touching anything and it's working fine, so thank you for your help.
I tried what you described (thank you very much for that!), and while the script works like a charm, for some reason fbi fails to load the 1920x1200 splashscreen. It literally returns a black screen with
after start up, mimicking the syntax in /opt/retropie/supplementary/splashscreen/asplashscreen.sh, the image is shown normally!
So close, yet so far! Any ideas?
EDIT: UN-FREAKING-BELIEVABLE! That was happening because I’m using USB auto-mount for loading roms into the system. For some reason, that option also overwrites the splash screens directory, but the pendrive is only mounted AFTER the splash screen is actually shown on startup. Hence, when I moved the stretched image into the directory, I was actually moving into the pendrive, which is ignored by the Pi on startup! All I had to do was unmount the pendrive, copy the file into the SD card and it worked! 😁 Thank you very much once again for all the help!
I was actually wrong it started up again but when i connected a power supply to my hdmi av connector it stopped and has been good since i think it is a power issue and using overscan must draw less power so thats why it seemed better
A new (hidden) config dir will be created: /home/pi/.pcsx/. And a dir where you must place the the PSX BIOS (i.e. the file SCPH1001.BIN): /home/pi/bios/.
Redo the settings for pcsx. They will be saved in /home/pi/.pcsx/pcsx.cfg. Do NOT copy the file 'pcsx.cfg' from /opt/retropie/configs/psx/pcsx/! You can, however, copy other settings like save files from there.
When certain emulators crash then the command line on my Pi (running Raspbian 9 Stretch) is unresponsive. The Pi does, however, respond via ssh. But no matter what process I kill, the console on my television stays non-responsive. Anybody got some tips & hints?
