Retropie games show on HDMI but not on piTFT 2.8"

  • Hello,

    My ROMs will play on my hdmi, but will not on my 2.8 PiTFT resistive display with the PiGRRL 2 project. I have the fbcp configured to mirror, which works great as I can see the retropie menus, but once a game starts and the grey box appears where you can press a button to configure, the piTFT basically stops displaying and only the HDMI continues where the game is shown. Unplugging the hdmi results in no change at the piTFT, the game is running but just now displaying on the piTFT. Any ideas what to try?


  • Hello,

    Can anyone please help or give some guidance on the problem above?

    Thanks in advance!
