Retroarch abnormal menu



  • Hello,
    I installed Retropie v4.6 on my Raspberry Pi 4.
    I cannot make my controller work in gaming, and therefore I want to find some further settings in Retroarch (e.g. pad binding settings).
    But it turns out that Retroarch menus are corrupted, and I cannot adopt any setting (I can navigating options, but no reaction after I hit enter on a specific option ).
    The menu of Retorarch is as attached. I've tried to reinstall Retroarch (it's a pre-built binaries) but nothing works.retroarchmenu.png

    Don't run this through VNC and run it normally - does it show the same behavior ? We don't support a desktop/VNC configuration for RetroPie on the Pi.

    I use VNC just in order to capture the screen. I got the same result(corrupted Retroarch menu) in both situations (with or without VNC).

    My Retropie is installed to an existing Raspbian(manual installation), and I hit "ctrl+alt+F2 / login / execute emulationstation" to enter emulationstation.

    Also, I've tried to install Retroarch by building from source. The result of the menu is the same. However my controller seems to works with Retroarch building from source, but Retroarch detects that I have two controllers, while in fact I only have one.

    Sorry, but I can't reproduce this. Run RetroPie normally, without any desktop session started, and see if you can reproduce the issue.



  • change retroarch language!!

    find /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    and added text anyline

    user_language = "0"
