Raspi4 Daphne Support

  • How can I install daphne on the raspberry pi4 via emulation station? There used to be an option to install daphne in the experimental section, but I do not see this on the raspberry pi4 branch of the Retropie repo that I used to install retropie/ES.

    @jpstagg This means it's not enabled for the Pi4 - might not even work.

  • @mitu It works but I forgot what flag I removed from the script. You also need to adjust the resolution manually since it won't stretch the video on a pi4. I'll check later.

  • might be worth using gt it up and running on a pi3 a while back there was some issues getting it going but got there in the end

  • To enable the ability to install Daphne on the Retropie-setup menu under optional, just comment out the following line like so in /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/emulators/ line 17, and then run the retropie-setup script again:

    #rp_module_flags="!x86 !mali !kms"

    I can't say it will work, but it will at least let you compile it.

    It will work (at least it works for me) but by default it may appear in a small window in the upper-left of the screen. If so, you could modify the last line of /opt/retropie/ and add -fullscreen -x 1920 -y 1080 (for an HDTV) to get it to run full screen. Would look something like this:

    "/opt/retropie/emulators/daphne/daphne.bin" "$name" vldp -nohwaccel -framefile "$dir/$name.txt" -homedir "/opt/retropie/emulators/daphne" -fullscreen -x 1920 -y 1080 $params

  • @roslof Yes, that's how I got it working.
