Re: Wine for Rapbarry

Downloading Lakka now, looking better now, last time I looked was Pi3B?
Vulkan coming to it?
Vulkan backend for Dolphin?

OK, that's why I did not pay much attention too it, Lakka is mostly gamebox emulator.
I'm old PC gamer, so Box86 it is for now.
Got lots of PC games to try.

Re: Wine for Rapbarry

Thanks, so much stuff is working now, I miss seeing it.
Plus it takes a picture or video to grab my attention, AoE snagged my attention.

Pi4's are getting too even better gaming Pi's.
RetroPie never really grabbed me.

Re: best OS setup

Sometimes it is just good to have windows 10 there for compatibility reasons
Why, what compatibilities are there that you need, maybe?

Linux has plenty of software that can handle the same file formats or do a similar things.
If you get the source files many will compile and work on Pi's.

Re: Hardware 3D for old SDL1.2 program

Ok, Blender 2.79b will import 3ds.
3ds importing was dropped in 2.80+, but Pi's can only run up to Blender 2.79 anyway.
Not sure how textures are done with 3ds yet.

Wonder if LAC can be updated to SDL2 or Vulkan one day?

Re: Pi 4 - a total failure

Did you start here?
https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/
Do you have access to a PC, Windows or Linux box with SD card reader/writer?

I don't like NOOBs, did you try Raspberry Pi OS?
Sometimes the SD card is the issue.
These days a minimum of 16GB A1 is a good place to start.

Did the same thing and Chromium got very slow.

Latest 83 build is a better than the first 83 build.

Not many LCD screens can.
Transflective are the better ones, but almost all Pi usable screens are transmissive?

Re: FPGA Development Software for RPI 4?

That Skywater link is interesting.
I use Cypress PSoC microcontrollers, they have CPLDs buried in them.

The number of macrocell equivalents vary by version. 32 to 396 MC?
They even use the old CPLD Warp software for the Verilog compiling.
