This start to get on me, asking here "does kedei screen works with blahblahblah" - use google, does really this young generation have some brain illness and can't use google?, I'm pretty sure there is already answer (not that I'm going to check), I think it was answered already too.
As author of topic, if I'll be in bad mood then I'm going to ask moderator to whack that post (and give some notice/warning) (you're lucky that I'm not mod or admin )
This topis is for hardware modification and controlling this screen from user-space (CLI) program
So, any post not fitting this might be reported (depends on my mood )
I don't know if retropie will work, ask on retropie forum - anyway I wouldn't be optimistic - issue is refresh rate, and it's going to your second question - no it is not possible to get decent refresh rate (decent > 15fps) with given hardware design of this lcd.GAMELASTER wrote:Hello, I have KeDei v5.0 (the 2016 version) and I want to run the RetroPie, but its not working.
And another question, is possible to increase the frequency of the display?
I don't know how fast is "bitbang" mode in FT232 but I think this might not work ,, ftdi might not keep up to interface (usb normal devices (not HID) are polled every about 10ms...)...
Anyway I'm not idle too, on weekend I committed a copy-paste (find&replace ) driver for DS2413 clone ( 3A 2100H ) , I just can't find good time to push the code into github & issue pull request on rpi kernel repo (my git-extension is moody...) (on my YT channel there is demo movie ).
Also I'm one step closer to the interface, I etched in last weekend too a one-sided pcb with fbtft-interface, so I just need to solder it, and hook up to lcd module. At least one project is slowly going forward (there is still a whole pile of other pending projects...)
