  Music games croaks
Posted by: cyborg - 07-21-2019, 05:44 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - Replies (4)

Hi guys, my problem, as the title suggests, is that in many mame games, the music goes jerky and is very annoying. I use the Retrorange version pi v.4.2 and use mame 2003 v.0.78, with the book emulator.
 Thank you.

  Pink Screen..
Posted by: Revnus - 07-18-2019, 01:12 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - Replies (4)

Hi. A few days ago I gave as a gift an orange pi with retrorangepi. The connection between the board is made by hdmi cable. 
It was working fine! Sometimes tho, when I first turned on the board with the tv at the same time a pink screen on the smart ledtv was shown. So the solution was simple turning off the board of the power supply and turning it again. But now, a few days after this, even by doing that method of turning off and turning again the board, or turning on the TV first all cables connected, the pink screen always show. I've tried a lot of things and I've already runned into other threads here. No solution for the hdmi tho. What else can I try?

  Is it posible wake orange pi zero from sleep mode to use GPIO?
Posted by: MrBlack - 07-15-2019, 09:35 PM - Forum: Hardware - No Replies

Hardware: Orange Pi Zero
OS: https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-zero/
Armbian Buster mainline based kernel 4.19.y

echo mem > /sys/power/state

working fine but I can not wakeup system.
Can somebody clarify me, please?
Is it posible wake orange pi zero from sleep mode  to use gpio?

Example for raspberry pi:
Quote:Raspbery pi wake up from a halt state. Simply put, shorting pins 5 and 6 (GPIO3 and GND) together will wake the RPi up from a halt state. An easy way to test this is to shutdown the Pi with sudo shutdown -h now, and connect pins 5 and 6 with
a female to female cable. You only need to short them momentarily.

I recently received my Banana Pi BPI-M4 and so far i love it. I was searching around the forum for retrorangepi images supporting my new board but can't seem to find any information. 
Is there any content/support for this device available? if not I understand.

  Can't install Amiberry from sources
Posted by: giankyfava - 07-12-2019, 05:07 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - Replies (25)

I can't manage to install Amiberry. I updated retropie scripts but then, when I try to install amiberry from sources (main packages), I get several error for source not found ( port 80) so I can't solve some dependencies.  Sad  Maybe this source is not available anymore? Is there another way to solve the problem? Thanks.

  C64 & Amiga @ 50Hz internal display ?
Posted by: RSdaz - 07-10-2019, 07:29 PM - Forum: Retrostone - No Replies


I know it's a little bit "special" but I wonder if it's possible to

- get a C64 and an Amiga-Emulator on the Retrostone ?
- if so, is it possible to get the internal display to run @ 50Hz (PAL) ?

thanks in advance ...

  How to change display res?
Posted by: Mangy_Dog - 07-09-2019, 03:49 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - Replies (12)

Im having some trouble with setting display res.
My project is using a 800x480 60hz lcd (the usual 40pin DPI) and a tfp401 based decoder.
Ive also tested on the adafruit board i can only display uboot at the correct res.
The moment linux starts the screen just goes black... Im assuming linux is ignoring the EDID data on the display board.

When its connected to my main monitor im unable to change res inside the armbian gui. Theres only 1 res listed. So how do i get this to follow the EDID res rules so when I plug it to my dev board it displays correctly for that panel and when set to my monitor it displays at the native res there too...

It appears to be stuck in 720p mode when i run it on my monitor. And my monitor freaks out with timing error warnings when i change res through the retropi menus...

So how do i do this? How do i make the orange pi in all the front ends run the display based on the edid settings?

  optimise reicast choppy
Posted by: bodtx - 07-04-2019, 07:37 AM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - No Replies

Hi, I've installed reicast and power stone 2 it is a bit choppy laggy.
I have an orangepi PC plus 2e and 4.2 slim version

Do you know if there is a way to optimize it. It is really close from being playable.
