    Please give more details about your system - https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first. Are you running on a Pi or on a PC/other system ? Make sure it's not a TV/Monitor setting that blanks the screen after an inactivity period.



  • Thanks for the reply but I figured it out. Im running on a pi3b+ and i had to erase all the empty <video /> tags in my gamelist files



  • @nicnac818 Thanks for sharing your solution.
