Re: Mausberry Circuit Script Slowndown

Sorry I have not post here in a while since I have not done much with this since I set it up. I went and updated to the latest version of RetroPie yesterday and found my Mausberry Circuit was shutting down the system shortly after booting with the in/out leads connected to the pins I always used. So...

Shut down script using RPi.GPIO interrupts

I think I have a working solution, performance is great and it runs in the background now... I removed the raw input and assocated function definition... Using while and time.sleep, I came up with this: #!/usr/bin/env python # Import the modules to send commands to the system and access GPIO pins fr...

Re: Mausberry Circuit Script Slowndown

I think my issue might the the

Code: Select all

raw_input()
used to keep the script running in a loop... Can that not be used to run it in the background?

Re: Mausberry Circuit Script Slowndown

So I have been doing some research/learning on using rpi.gpio interupts and found an example script. I was able to write another small script to read the status of the GPIO ports I am using (22 & 14). I am not sure if it is the most efficient, but it seems to work. here is what I came up with: #!/us...

Re: Mausberry Circuit Script Slowndown

I wouldn't mind if it didn't work during emulation. From Emulation Station would be fine... I tried renice, but that didn't seem to make a difference. The odd thing it according to top, it is not using that much cpu maybe 1-3% on average... I didn't think to change that sleep level, might play aroun...

Re: Mausberry Circuit Script Slowndown

I would still like to figure out how to resolve this.

If I killall the script, there is an immediate improvement is speed, So what I would like to know is if it is possible to stop the script when launching a rom, then start it back up when returning to emulation station.

Mausberry Circuit Script Slowndown

I have a Mausberry shutdown circuit and I have found the script is adding some resource overhead. My ROMs (NES/SNES) that are heavier hitters (the ones that need the overclock) run slower once it is enabled. If I remove the switch.sh script from /etc, then the performance returns to normal... Anyone...

Turns out it was the ROM... Learned something new! Nestopia playing it really threw me off... Thanks!

Re: NES ROM plays to fast

Hi! Thanks! Those are interesting points I wasn't aware of or considered. I am pretty sure it is NTSC, but how would I know for sure? I should have also mention I do have the cart in a playable console and it is faster than even that. Hard to say how much faster, maybe 2x... I am using RetroArch, I ...

NES ROM plays too fast

I have one ROM (Shadowgate) that runs too fast, well the music at least... Every other ROM I try is fine. I can also play the same ROM with Nestopia on my Mac without issue... Shadowgate seems picky about performance, as if I don't over-clock, then the audio is choppy... Anyone have any thoughts wha...
