Heavy N64 lag after reinstalling
@emk530 please post your /boot/config.txt as requested
you won't be able to give a verbose log as you're not using a retroarch emulator. however you can still get a regular log in /dev/shm/runcommand.log that will be useful
i wouldn't recommend using this - it's not the default. mupen64plus-gliden64 is most compatible.
@dankcushions mupen64plus-gles2n64 is fastest for me but if you have a solution I could switch what I mainly use
Coming with runcommand.log as fast as I can
@dankcushions Can't find a way to get the runcommand.log,
pi@retropie:/dev/shm $ dir
Tells me nothing
Saying again, scenes that should make the emulator lag way more actually doesn't lag it much more at all making me think there's something limiting it or something else
@emk530 did you run the game since your last reboot/reinstall? it will always populate it.
sorry, just seen you're using pi3 - gles2n64 was historically good for me for mario kart on the pi3, just not with the mesa driver.
it's definitely normal for a pi3 to lag quite a bit on n64, though. for mario kart 64 it would be normal for it to lag a bit at the start of the race, but should be mostly smooth during gameplay. how does the lag manifest in mario kart?
@emk530 The log file is created after running the emulator. Since
/dev/shmis kept in RAM, you'll have to get the file immediately after exiting the emulator and before starting another game.
@dankcushions Let me provide a video if you give me some time
I downgraded to version 4.6 and it's running just fine

@emk530 I upgraded to latest 4.7 and having exactly the same issues with you but on the Pi4.
Can't find the image of 4.6 though anymore :( Is there somwhere you got it from that you could share link ?
@tuomaspap Sorry for the delay, I never expected a reply. I was able to get it through the wayback machine. I've gone ahead and found a link on github for the pi4, hope it works!
