  • Hi! Anyone with a pi 2 can tell me if nds emulation is as good as on a pi 3?

    I'm interested on buying a pi 2 for a little project and i'd like to know if drastic works properly


  • @chuck_b I have a pi2 and can check for you. overclocked or just with stock clock? What's the price difference between a pi2 and pi3?

    Edit: you could also down clock your pi3 to test for similar results.


  • @quicksilver only stock clock.
    i think the prices are pretty similar


  • got a pi 2 and 3 and honestly drastic works well on both systems fine depending on your project though you may want to take into account the pi 3 needs more juice so if your thinking portable pi 2 is probably a better go to anything else go for a pi 3 given the price difference is non existant

    only thing to note is drastic has a long standing issue that hasnt been fixed where once you have launched it you have to reset the pi to launch a different emulator as drastic gets stuck in the background after exit that and any games using mics wont launch i tihnk a zelda game is included in that aswell

    so yeah pi 2 or 3 doesnt really matter for drastic just choose what model suits your project best


  • @blackshadow said in NDS on raspberry pi 2:

    erent emulator as drastic gets stuck in the background after exit that and any games using mics wont launch i tihnk a zelda game is included in that aswell
    so yeah pi 2 or 3 doesnt really matter for drastic just

    Yes, my intention is just to make a portable console. I'll investigate more about the zelda game. Zelda is a must, I hope it works :)
