Re: R-Pi MMORPG Community Project (UNDERWAY/NEEDS MORE HELP)

Exciting stuff! I'm assuming that you've always pictured the final game being played with mouse & keyboard, but might I suggest we design it in such a way that a player could build a controller using the Pi's GPIO pins? ... This is certainly an interesting idea. Certainly make for some interesting ...

Re: Determining how fast your Pi really is

You may have discovered why people caution that the volt mod is not without risk. Remove all OC options from config.txt and if you still get corruption then you'll need a replacement device. The SD-card(s) are corrupted. Sure once or twice windows could repair the boot sector, but most of the time ...

Re: Determining how fast your Pi really is

$ vcgencmd read_ring_osc read_ring_osc(2)=4.895MHz (@1.20V) (Technically it's @1.80V) Before applying the voltmod I was able to run Turbo without any trouble. But since the voltmod I can't even do that.. I've checked my soldering and I'm not seeing any possible shorts. I keep getting SD-card corrup...

Re: Steam and Halflife for raspberry pi 2

The source engine, the engine which Valve have used for most of their games (Some older games have been imported into source), supports android. Particularly, Portal and Half Life 2 have been ported over to run on the Nvidia android device line up. The CPU that Nvidia use is based upon the ARMv7 Arc...

Re: Overclocking

Ok, removing inductor L5 was easier than I thought. The hard part was getting the wire from RG1(mid) to C16(far)... (I'm not very good at soldering) The best part is my Pi booted up just fine after the mod.. However, when checking the in the voltage using vcgencmd measure_volts core I get volt=1.20V...

Re: Nintendo DS in Retropie

There is a DS emulator (sudo apt-get install desmume), but it requires X and is very, very, (very) slow on rpi1 (<6 fps). If that's the case, a rpi2 should be able to at least get 15fps, if not more. If we can find a way that we can not require X, It might push it up well into the playable regions ...

Re: Mods for Minecraft

I have to agree, coding blocking would most likely be the better option when it comes to minecraft and it's clones. Minecraft PI is based off of Minecraft PE which, at the current time, unmodable (well, really hard to mod) The closest thing to a mod that we have had is very simply just unlocks and h...

Livestreaming? I really don't think the pi has the power to run screen capture software at a ok FPS, and besides, I don't even think anyone has even made the software yet. The only thing I can think of is to use console capture cards and simply plug in you pi and do some configuring... Then, the onl...

Any way to fix sound? I had it working via hdmi, but as soon as I try to use the 3.5mm jack I get nothing. When I had it before, sound worked. You need to make sure your audio settings are set to auto detect or 3.5mm jack for it to work though. Maybe you have it set to force HDMI? Well I've tried t...
