As the title suggests I’m having a problem with chromium on the pixel desktop that is located in the ports section on retropie, and if that explanation is too confusing it’s just the pixel desktop that you install from the raspbian related tools in the retropie setup section in the retropie consoles and stuff menu.
Anyways the problem I’m having with it is the entire tab appears diagonal, aside from the outer box that defines the boundaries of the tab itself, the problem doesn’t appear with anything except chromium. Note that this is the pre-installed form of chromium that is already there when you first start up the pixel desktop, and not a form of chromium that I installed later, also note that this problem persists even when re-installing the entire retropie image.
Thank you in advance for any and all help.
(Heck it won’t let me remove the “pixel” tag
I had the same issue and resolved it by manually installing rpi os, then retropie on top of it. A 3rd person has reported the issue in this thread but the way to solve it is there until its solved on the developer end.
I think I faced exactly the same thing as you yesterday. I got an error message where it said something about the audio, sorry don't remember the error message. I tried a few things and gave up and just installed everything (Raspbian and Retropie) again. It should be another way though..... Its absurd you have to reinstall an OS because of this....
I connected it to the second port and booted it up, then started playing around with the config again. Lo and behold, hdmi_group=1 didn't cause a catastrophic error! The rest was cake, thanks to you guys.
Very much appreciated, thank you so much for all your help!
Good to know. I tried a handful of games a while back and didn't have any luck myself, but it makes sense that some of the less demanding games would be playable. What kind of frame rates were you getting?
