LCD monitor out of range only during emulator launch?

  • Hi there,

    When launching any emulator, I'm getting an "Out of range" on my LCD monitor. I have no issue navigating within ES and I've tried playing around with the resolutions, aspect ratio and not sure what else to play with, just happens within emulators. Any help is appreciated, I'm fairly new to custom resolutions and where to look.

    Power Supply used: through Pi2JAMMA
    RetroPie Version Used (eg 3.6, 3.8.1, 4.1 - do not write latest): 4.4
    Built From: Custom Pre made SD Image on Pi2Jamma website

    Log found in /dev/shm/runcommand.log (if relevant):

    @coinguyninja Try using the RetroPie image from and see if you have a problem. It's hard to know what configs have been changed by a 3rd party image.

  • Figured it out, there was a custom runcommand script that was being ran during launch of each emulator. Once that was disabled, it fixed the problem entirely.
