Re: Retropie vs. SNES Classic

The Pi runs the Snes Classic Mini emulator (the emulator that the Snes Classic Mini uses, because the Snes Mini is an ARM computer running an emulator) with no problems:
(Well, there's a small problem with the sram files, but it should be easy to fix)

The best way to play Laserdisc games on the Raspberry Pi 3

Hi there! I have fixed Hypseus, a Daphne port to SDL2, so it works on the Pi (it didn't work before because it was doing some gl calls outside the thread where the main window was created, lacked overlays which now work, etc...) You can get the sources here: https://github.com/vanfanel/hypseus Don't...

Re: Megadrive emulation on original RPi

MegaDrive Emulation is fine on the Original Pi which negates the need for a Pi Zero. I would advise a version of PicoDrive which is the best overall MegaDrive/Genesis Emulator available for the Pi. Check the Emulation sticky for info - Link - https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=78&t=...

Hi, For a particular project, I need the Pi to run in single-process mode ("init=/bin/bash" in config,txt, for example, in this case it's our own program). The thing is, UDEV isn't running obviously, so USB keyboard is not working in this mode. In theory, it should be possible to have USB devices wo...

Hi, I'd like to disable watchdogd for experimentation pourposes. So, I tried "systemd mask watchdogd", "systemd mask watchdog", etc... with no luck.

Yes. There could be more non-readable text because SDL1 disables writting to the console at some point on the Pi without X.

Re: gzdoom on raspberry pi

@Vanfanel Did you had some success using gl4es with LIBGL_GL=1 ? It should mainly use dispmanx and not much X11 in this configuration. I went all the way, built and installed SDL 1.x and all it's deps, and trying LIBGL_FB=1 I get this with stuntcarremake: LIBGL: Initialising gl4es LIBGL: v0.9.5 bui...

Re: gzdoom on raspberry pi

@ptitSeb: Some X11 headers and libs seem to be installed on my system, but X11 runtime is not installed or running.
Since X11 is not running (using dispmanx with X11 running is not recommended at all), you can't count on it for anything really.
Does anybody have GL4GLES running without X11 on the Pi?

Re: gzdoom on raspberry pi

@ptitSeb: How's LIBGL_FB=1 supposed to work on the Raspberry Pi? The Raspberry Pi currently uses dispmanx as it's X11-less 2D system, but there is no dispmanx code in gl4es at all.
