Re: Emulation on the Raspberry Pi&Pi2 (Updated 24/01/2016)

Mon Feb 01, 2016 5:52 pm

I don't suppose you know how to get 720p stretched to fit the whole screen do you? Tried all sorts and can't seem to get it.

and yes I know it won't be the right size etc etc, however I and the kids like it full screen 8-)

If i select 720p 16:9 (DMT85) the game appears in a box in the centre (4:3). But if I select 800x600 (4:3) the the screen stretched to the full screen (16:9) ?????

Any help apprecated.
thanks

Hey Welshy
I like the colours you put on the updates with the co-ordinated colour for the post, much easier to find in the threads

Hi, I'm wanting to set up a dedicated emulation box. As far as emulation on the Pi goes are there any emulators that support the Xbox One controllers? I'd like to use my Xbox One Elite controller with my dedicated emulation box like I currently do with emulation on my PC. Thanks.

Editing files in Jessie Lite Etc folder

Sat Apr 02, 2016 8:58 pm

Hello all. I've been working on building an emulation box and have installed the Jessie light image. I've installed piplay as well and am now configuring a tankstick controller. I'm using notepad++ to log in and get to the files but I can't save them. I've tried various forms of the chmod command but I've none of them seem to work. is there a way to use notepad plus plus in a super user form that would give me access to write to the files in the etc folder? In this case it's the local.rc file. I read a chmod 777 command would work which would be great as I'd love to just get rid of all the permissions in the home directory and the included directories as well. this will not be on the network so permissions in this case for me aren't useful. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Now that we've got the RPi3, are there any original xbox emulators out there?

I have been trying to use RetroPie, but there is too much noticeable input lag! I have tried different controllers, and different TVs, and tried it on a PC monitor as well. Also tried HDMI and RCA output. When I use those same controllers on an emulator on my PC, everything is snappy and controls feel tight. Would one of these other emulators work better? From some of the descriptions, it sounds like maybe they would be better. Does anybody have any experience with this? Thanks!

Welcome to the Forum! Unfortunately there isn't a working/reliable XBox Emulator on any OS be it Windows, OSX or Linux.

Has anyone taken a look at Play!? It's a PlayStation 2 emulator intended to also run on ARM devices.
Of course, I'm not expecting much, but since I don't have a Raspberry Pi 3, I don't really know. Is someone up for the task? Someone who could try to compile it and test it out?

Forget it! Its probably an early Build and the RPi wouldn't have anywhere near the Processing Power required. I have the best Win PS2 Emulator running on a pretty powerful Desktop and it runs ok but MANY Optimizations and Configurations are required, without these it struggles!

UPDATE: Found some footage

It doesn't say the Hardware its being run on but I'm betting its something SIGNIFICANTLY more powerful that the RPi! Remember, a 'Smart Phone' isn't really a phone, its a £6-700 Computer with the ability to make calls!

Sure, it's an early build. I've been following the project myself for a while, and I wasn't expecting to run PS2 on the Pi just yet.

What I wanted was to spread the word about this emulator because, unlike many others competing with PCSX2, this one has huge potential for cross-platform (got it running on an iPhone 6) and see if someone could start porting it.

Agreed, the more people who know about it the better! Always nice to see a NEW Emulator! Whatever the Platform!

I have reached a the limit of 60, 000 Characters so am unable to complete a Nintendo DS Emulator to this post. Are there any alternatives or a possible increase in this amount for the Thread?

Thank You

@ welshy. what I could do is to split off your very first post of from this sticky, and make the rest onto a separate "comments" thread..
You could then add a second post to your first posts (I would lock your fist post so nobody would be able to sneak in a second post but you). How does that sound?

And no, 60.000 characters seems to be the limit for a single post here, cannot do anything about that.
P.s. I probably wont be able to stick the rest of the post on after your 2 (or three if you plan ahead) posts, but I can convert it to a comments section and sticky.
Perhaps you want to divide your original first post over several posts


How does that sound? send me a PM!

Which is better and smooth gameplay for dos emulation in your option, rpix86 0.19 (last build) or dosbox 0.74 (last build)?

I have tested both myself, but I don't really see difference with them. Maybe I haven't tweaked enough, do you know any tweaks?

Alone in the Dark, smooth gameplay (only places where were lot of action, there was minor lags)
Fallout 1, lags too much (during opening video, and same continue after start playing)
Doom, playable (I think dosbox run Doom better than rpix86, atleast gameplay felt a little smooth(ish)

In the early days of the Pi rpix86 was significantly faster for titles such as Doom/Magic Carpet and X-Wing* on the Pi1 as it was an Optimized version of the then current DosBox Build of that time. However things may have changed as I haven't tested the latest Builds on Pi2/3. Also, perhaps significantly, rpix86 is the work of one Programmer (Patrick Aalto) where as DosBox I believe is 'Open Source' so many more people are working on it.

* These were the Titles I tested/Benchmarked with
