  Menu Driver rgui change only works in some emulators
Posted by: deadl0ck - 01-20-2020, 07:57 PM - Forum: Retrostone 1 - Replies (4)

In order to be able to read the menus easier in Retrostone V1, I have changed the Menu driver to "rgui"

This works fine for some emulators but not for others

For example, it's fine in PCEngine but it reverts to the original in the NeoGeo Pocket Color menus

Is this normal ?

Brick Crash to empty screen
Posted by: Tanuki - 01-20-2020, 05:18 AM - Forum: Retrostone2 - Replies (12)

The first crash I had was in 30s into owlia (NES), where it cut to black. I had to restart the console, which seems to have corrupted the emulation station. It wouldn't load after that.

My second crash was after an hour of playing brain lord (SNES). It cut to black again. On restart, emulation station worked but my save and save state were gone Sad.

If anyone else experiences these crashes post here !

  New Release (with bug fixes) - updated Jan20
Posted by: alexkidd - 01-18-2020, 07:30 PM - Forum: Retrostone2 - Replies (6)

Hi guys,

updated version, based on kernel 5.3.13, is out.


- lag fixed (caused by wifi/bluetooth). 
Whenever you need internet, run Enable from RetroPie - RetrOrangePi - Wifi submenu. It should autoconnect to your access point. Select Connect if you havent set a connection yet (must have usb keyboard to type password)

- audio stuttering (most) fixed (also caused by wifi/bt + background music, both off by default).
Keep in mind heavier platforms like PS1 and MAME will have occasional audio glitches. A few N64 titles should be playable with glitches.

- controls fixed
i only received the final unit this week and layout was different. Both dpad and analog joystick work out of the box. Hotkey shortcuts work as well

- controller delay fixed
it was caused by a delayed service. It should work immediately from now on.

- 3 EmulationStation themes (GBZ35, GBZ35 dark and Pixel TFT) were included.
They're optimal for 3.5 screens

Now please head to the Readme 1st thread for the download link. Take some time to read the notes and instructions while your image downloads.

Thanks guys.


UPDATED Jan 20th 

- fixed Advance Mame resolution (it was crashing to EmulationStation because resolution was set to 1080p - files advmame.rc, advmenu.rc and advmess.rc in /home/pi/.advance/ ) 

- changed retroarch.cfg setting: video threaded = true (improve performance at possible cost of latency, file /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg )

Hi there,

I found another dysfunktion. The Hot Keys (e.g. SELECT and START to EXIT) are not working. I tested them with FBA, Game Gear, Gameboy and Mame.

Is there a solution? I have to restart the system every time!

Bug Lag/stuttering in every game
Posted by: Tanuki - 01-15-2020, 04:44 AM - Forum: Retrostone2 - Replies (21)

I just installed retrorangepi on my new retrostone 2. It boots up fine, audio in the emulationstation works fine, but when I go into any game on any system, it lags. At first I thought it was just audio stuttering but I think it may be the whole thing. 

Also I saw in the notes that configuration should be set up automatically but it wasn't! 

Any help with the lag/audio issues ?

  Orange Pi Pc+ DosBox troubles
Posted by: Hotab777 - 01-14-2020, 08:57 AM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.3 - Replies (4)

Hello, all.
I installed ropi4.3 on my Orange Pi Pc+ and almost everything works wonderful! Many thanks to builders of this distro. But the libreto lr-dosbox preinstalled - is too slow... On my son's RPi3 retropie have non-libreto DosBox preinstalled, and it work's great, so I decided to install non-libreto dosbox on my PiPc+ from sources in packages. It says about can't install libsdl1.2-dev and some dependent packages cause of unmet dependencies in libsdl1.2. I install dependent packages one after another, so I can install libsdl1.2-dev. After that non-libreto DosBox succesfully compiled from sources in packages of RetroPi. And I can choose it as default emulator when I starting dos game from emustation, and game runs too much better than in libreto dosbox. But... It runs only about 1/4 of screen (1920*1080 resolution). And this is not a so big trouble, cause main trouble - that mouse don't work...(in libreto dosbox it works). 
So, can somebody help about not working mouse, and maybe with screensize...
P.S: sorry for my bad english.

Hi everyone, unfortunately I could not configure more than one version of retrorange, problems were different from non-responding keyboards to crashes to the console, will it work on Orange pi plus 2?
