Long story short, I want a legit Tetris: The Grand Master cab. But it may be a while before I save enough for it or find one. So I was wanting to cheat and make a mini cab to emulate TGM and some bullet dodgers. I was told a Pi might be a good choice and was referred to here, but I've also seen elsewhere online people saying TGM runs like crap on a pi3 but nothing about the 4? Anyone have any info on this for me?
RetroPie is not yet fully supported on the Pi4, so there's no straight answer here. Looking at the MAME information for this game, I see it's been modified recently (http://adb.arcadeitalia.net/dettaglio_mame.php?game_name=tgmj&arcade_only=0&autosearch=1) so even if it works with one of the arcade emulators included in RetroPie, the emulation is imperfect.

@Match5t1ck I'm using a pi4 overclocked at 1950mhz.
Tested with tgmj.zip
fb-neo: I don't believe the game is supported.
mame2003Plus: Loads to a green screen. Not supported.
mame2010: 60fps. Playable.
mame 2016: ~50fps. Not great.
I tested tgm2.zip as well.
mame2003plus: 60fps, though I'm not sure how accurate the emulation is compared to fb-neo.
mame2010: Boots me back to menu. No idea why.
fb-neo: Minor drops to ~59.5 sometimes but 60fps most of the time.
With mame, the newer the year, the slower it is, but will have better emulation. Fb-neo is actively developed.
I'm not a dev so I'm not sure how optimized the arcade emulators are. I still need to do testing for myself with other games because I plan to mainly use fb-neo and a version of mame for games that neo does not support. Right now I'm thinking mame2010. 2016 I'll need to retest when it's properly optimized because I want to play deathsmiles and atm the fps is all over the place and nowhere near a stable 60fps.
