  About the hardware corresponding and which one has the best performance
Posted by: Himyorange - 11-30-2018, 03:16 AM - Forum: HARDWARE DISCUSSION - Replies (1)

I confuse about the hardware board to correspond to its image file. 

Maybe there are many board and its name is similar. 

I confuse about the "orange pi zero". The image files are these below:

  1. Orange Pi Zero NTSC
  2. Orange Pi Zero PAL
  3. Orange Pi Zero PLUS2 H3
I guess 1 & 2 are on the same hardware but the different monitor screen specification, NTSC & PAL.

There are three boards on the https://www.orangepi.org

  1. "Orange Pi Zero" It has two version-256 and 512 RAM size for choice. H2+ cpu is used on this board. http://www.orangepi.org/orangepizero/
  2. "Orange Pi Zero Plus" It has only one 512 RAM size version. H5 cpu is used on this board. http://www.orangepi.org/OrangePiZeroPlus/
  3. "Orange Pi Zero Plus 2" It has two version-H3 and H5 cpu for choice. Only 512 RAM size is on both two versions. http://www.orangepi.org/OrangePiZeroPlus2/

So, according to the above list, "Orange Pi Zero Plus" is not supported to any image file. But, "Orange Pi Zero" and "Orange Pi Zero Plus 2" have the corresponding images individually. 

Smile  Am I right above?

In addition, which one has the best performance?

  GPIO slow init on startup
Posted by: aiiaiiiyo - 11-29-2018, 10:34 AM - Forum: SUPPORT - Replies (10)


I was able to make the GPIO work with the built in tz_service on a banana pi m2 zero. However I'm facing an issue with slow init of the service/script.

On startup I'm just staring at emulationstation. It is fully loaded, but the buttons are not responding. A good minute needs to pass so I be able to use the controller.
It is not a big issue, I just consider it as an additional boot time.

What frustrates me is that when I start a game it seems like retroarch is resetting or reinitializing the service/script again and I need to wait for a good minute again until I can use the GPIO buttons ingame.

Somebody please give me some tips where should I start getting to the bottom of this issue.

  Don't Working GPIO Joypad on OPi Zero...
Posted by: intelis - 11-28-2018, 04:53 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - Replies (3)

I want to make GB Zero using Opi Zero.
I am blocked from connecting the controller to the GPIO.
I've been halfway through it, but I can not go any further.
I need your advice.

RetrOrangePi v4.2 Full version has a bug and I'm working on 4.1.
It works well on my first controller autoconfiguration and works fine on ES.
But when I play Game, the controller does not work at all.

I do not know how to find the cause.
(I trying edit "/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg")
I looked for a clue that did not work and gave up.

I'd like a little clue.

  New problem with booting
Posted by: BobRooney - 11-25-2018, 08:52 PM - Forum: Retrostone - Replies (1)

Hello again. 

So my retrostone has been working pretty well over the last month or two. It occasionally gets stuck in the blue/white boot screen, but usually powering it off and on (sometimes takes a few attempts) gets it up and running and then it's fine. 

However just today, it will not boot at all. On the first power up, it got past the blue/white screen, hit the retrorangepi splash screen, then came up with an error that no games were loaded. At that point, I couldn't do anything and had to shut it off. Ever since then, it will not go past the blue/white screen. I've probably powered it off and on no less than 50 times by now. 

It doesn't seem to change anything if I power it up with or without a SIM card in it, so I don't know if it is a software or hardware issue at this point? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

  Nice setup for scanlines
Posted by: Marco Verhoeven - 11-22-2018, 11:23 PM - Forum: Retrostone - Replies (2)

I was looking for a nice scanline setup for the retrostone and this is what i like:

You need to download the overlays from retroarch.
Select the overlay from the directory “WII” scanlinesbold.cfg
Settings Overlay Opacity 0.28
Settings Scale 1.28

If anyone else has a better setup then let me know.
