Re: ATARI ST EMULATOR, HATARI

Having some trouble getting it to run as installed from apt-get. It is asking me for a hitari.nvram file to be in /home/pi/hatari. I can't seem to find that file to put in.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks

in one of my previous test/experiment I got an average of about 85Mbps (peak at 120, low at 50) file copy speed via GbE LAN connection.
have no data for file copy via WiFi connection to network.
Ok. thanks. :) Sounds like it's generally slower than USB.

Re: best (fastest) storage option

Without a link to the device you're considering no-one can say for sure. I didn't find a device to buy yet, I was trying to get advice about which connection to look for. Sorry if it seems like something that should have been obvious to me. I'd be surprised if a commercial NAS could act as a USB sl...

Hi, I am thinking about what storage option to buy for my raspberry pi 4. I am considering an NAS that can attach by either USB or ethernet cable. I came across some mention of USB being potentially slower if you run a lot of devices at the same time, but I not from any official sources, so I wanted...

Retroarch without X11/Pixel Pi4

Does anyone know if Retroarch can be compiled to work on top of Raspbian without X11 or Pixel loaded? I use a CRT arcade setup, so I can't display anything that requires higher than 240p resolution. Just in case people are wondering why I'm asking about this, I have already *fully* explored Retropie...

no, you can't use fbi for that - that's why the author of the same package wrote fbgs:

Code: Select all

Multipage PDF from command line?

I downloaded imagemagick and fbi, which together will display a PDF, but it's only showing the first page of the PDF.

Is there some way to tell fbi to display the whole document, or is there another program that will display a multipage pdf from the command line instead of fbi?

Thanks

If I set the config to output 640x480 or 800x600, does that change everything in the system to that resolution, or is just some kind of frame buffer and the system resolution stays at ...

RetroPie has a single sdl library with code based on vanfanel's sdl dispmanx but also with standard fbcon support and other fixes. So you can decide if you want tear free, but blocking dispmanx or framebuffer. dosbox works fine with the fbcon driver though, so use that. Performance will be worse wi...

Re: Scummvm DISPMANX for Raspberry Pi

Ok, thanks Vanfanel for the reply!

That makes sense, I never messed with the aspect settting at all. I just assumed that the pi was figuring it out by itself. :)

Thanks for the explanation AndyD of the frame buffer, it is making more sense now.

I'll report back once I've had a chance to try it.
