@dankcushions arrrrgh. Thanks. Definite performance issues when rotating the whole system, and PiFBA is the only core that's giving me issues otherwise. Now I'm off to see if I can compile FBNeo with Cyclone and see how that runs. Thanks for your help!
@crossmr I managed to get the controls reconfigured, however the graphics option"MaintainAspectRatio=1" doesn't seem to work in the config file. Right now the image is stretched to the sides, instead of maintaining the proper aspect ratio.
Yeah, it was the principality of it, saving and loading game specific options in a global config. I think I could not get either the macros or cabinet settings to work this way, rendering them beyond completely pointless. I think the actual cabinet settings for the retroarch core are saved in /roms/neogeo/FBA/ along with high score, and I don't know what was up with the macros.
I'm pretty positive that the romsets are correct with the emu version.
I've ordered a 3B+, should come in the mail tomorrow,was hoping to be able to find a use on the old rpi but i guess it's gonna be something else.
