Re: n64 emulator is slow as hell on my pi 2

go to terminal and type

sudo raspi-config

and it opens the config screen. from there you can setup the pi including the memory split and overclocking

Re: n64 emulator is slow as hell on my pi 2

set it to the pi2 setting of 1000mhz. I just tested kirby 64 and it ran okay, stuttered a little but generally smooth. also set the memory split to 512mb

Re: Configuring Retroarch.cfg Logitech f310

I never use that. I just use

jstest /dev/input/js0

then write down what button does what then edit the cfg

you could look into micro controllers. it might be possible with the rather cheap arduino uno.

Re: Retroarch config files missing

that guide is outdated and it is much easier to just get the retropie image.

from terminal type

sudo nano /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

and that should let you edit the config.

Re: Retroarch config files missing

with 2.0 they changed some stuff around. before everything was in one place but now some things have moved to

/opt/retropie

edit: it is also worth noting that it is a "protected" folder meaning you need to use sudo to edit the files in there.

Re: pigrrl case with b+?

the only thing I can see causing issues is the usb and Ethernet ports but they are pretty easy to move/remove. Poppycock and balderdash. It makes a B+ next to useless if you remove connectors. http://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/hardware/raspberrypi/mechanical/README.md http://www.raspberrypi-...

it seems kinda simple. he just just had the pi stream and used vlc to watch it using the stream option. there is a good amount of latency though.

that should start the setup, then it should be the 3rd option down under the 2 options for installing retropie. then i think its one of the first options but it will say somethingl ike start emulationstation on boot
