  USB Sound Card support in RetrOrangePi v4?
Posted by: djcasl - 05-10-2018, 06:42 PM - Forum: SUPPORT - Replies (5)

Next to my Orange PI PC Plus I have a Pi Lite version.
Problem is it doest't have any sound.
Now I want to use it to build in a mini arcade, and I saw this:

It's running on OS:Armbian_5.35_Orangepilite_Ubuntu_xenial_default_3.4.113_desktop
This thing seems PnP but wil this work in RetrOrangePi v4?
Found one on AliExpress.

  SNES Lag / Stutter until I open RetroArch?
Posted by: infex - 05-10-2018, 02:29 PM - Forum: SUPPORT - Replies (1)

Hey yall,

I have been using Orange Pi PC with RetrOrangePi 4.1 and it runs very well, but I had noticed that their was some serious lag. I read up and folks said that turning on Vsync would fix the issue, which i think it did?. I say that because once I exit RetroArch after changing the video settings, it works PERFECTLY.. But once I exit the game and open the game again, same issue. I checked to see if I had saved the configuration settings, and I did.. But of course once I exit RetroArch after checking to see if the configuration had saved, it works perfectly.. While messing with the settings I also changed the vsync swap interval to 4 and turned off hard GPU sync, Not sure if that made a difference. I just don't want to have to open RetroArch everytime I want to play, any help would be great guys. ***update, this happens with NES as well, havent noticed on Genesis or GameGear.

  ZX-Spectrum (lr-fuse) keyboard access
Posted by: znoxx - 05-07-2018, 06:39 PM - Forum: SUPPORT - Replies (3)

To get ZX-Spectrum emulation working, there are some weird steps.

Keyboard is not accessible, and it is not possible to configure input in e.g. game menu

To make it accessible, you need to get to emulator configuration via select+x, then

Select "none" as input device for player 1
Select "none" as input device for player 2
Select "sinclair keyboard" as input device for player 3

Actually step are described there: https://github.com/libretro/fuse-libretro#input-devices

My question -- how I can set this as default settings ? Even I restart the game, it still uses those "factory presets"... It will be very handy have only keyboard configured, since a LOT of games have menu selection. Also saving this "per game" is not a good option, since there are thousands of titles....

  Included Firefox Browser Freezes the OPi lite
Posted by: DeJaVu - 05-06-2018, 04:36 PM - Forum: SUPPORT - Replies (2)

I have been trying to do some light browsing on the OPi Lite, but every time i try to start Firefox it would become unresponsive and only remedy was reboot. The lack of ram is clearly the culprit here, adding swap file doesnt seem to improve the situation much.

The workaround for me in case anyone is interested and owns the Lite, was installing a lighter browser, in this case Midori.
You can install it by running in terminal  "sudo apt-get install midori" , it does the job great.
Maybe there are some better alternatives and id be glad to try them out if there are any suggestions.

Btw, i think it would be a good idea to add some lighter browser in OPi Lite and One distros , as firefox doesnt cut it for them, at least in my experience.

  Kodi videos wont play
Posted by: DeJaVu - 05-05-2018, 10:01 PM - Forum: SUPPORT - Replies (28)

Kodi used to work fine on my OPi Lite with the addon i prefer on my previous Retrorangepi 4.1 installation on which i had done every posible update(maaaany hours).
But now after doing fresh install it shows all the sources for the videos, but videos for some reason wont play(even youtube).
As i dont want to go through that veery long update process again, and dont want to fill the install with lots of unneeded components, it would be great if someone could point me in the right direction and advise what packages i need updated to get it working again.
At the moment only thing i have updated is RetrOrangePi from the Retroarch menu.

  RetroOrangePi 4.1 handle the contollers with huge delay
Posted by: Imre_Papai - 05-03-2018, 07:54 PM - Forum: SUPPORT - Replies (8)

I downloaded from the official website the newest version of RetrOrangePi, namely RetrOrangePi 4.1. and installed it successfully.
When the emulator loaded the rom(s) I have to be waiting for 30 or 60 seconds to start the game because the controllers cannot be handled these time periods.
I haven't got an idea what causes this issue, but it is really annoying.

Are there some tricks or solution which can fix this issue?

As I experienced that the previous version of the RetroOrangePi (3.0) didn't include this bug, but I haven't downloaded again because it isn't available.

Thank you for your help!

Shocked How do I format EMMC on PI PC +?
Posted by: seantattoo666 - 05-03-2018, 07:39 PM - Forum: SUPPORT - Replies (2)

I'm having some trouble getting ROPI 4.1 installed and running on my PI PC +. I've installed it according to instructions - run the update twice before installing to EMMC.

The problem I have is that after installing I can play games for various systems, but every so often the system just reboots for no reason.

I'm starting to think I've got a duff board, because I have to regular PI PC's and they run ROPI just fine from the micro SD.

So I'm just wondering how do I go about formatting the EMMC, then change the settings on the PI to boot from SD card again? Would I need to do the latter after formatting, since it will then be a blank system?

Thanks in advance. Smile

I forgot to add, the reason I want to format the EMMC on the PI PC + is so I can try running ROPI via SD card again, and see if I still get the same problem. Wink

  reicast emu.cfg does not save a command line
Posted by: rtokuda - 05-03-2018, 02:52 PM - Forum: SUPPORT - Replies (11)

Hello, I'm having trouble editing a line from Reicast's emu.cfg, with this command line being:

Dreamcast.Cable = 3

I want to just put "0" instead of "3" and save, this option is to fix some graphics bugs that some games may show, but when I start Reicast, I see that this option is never saved and always returns the original configuration .

  boot splash screen and kiosk mode?
Posted by: tecdroid - 05-01-2018, 10:07 AM - Forum: OrangePI DIY - No Replies

Hi there,

I want to use an OrangePi Plus 2E as kiosk system and need to hide boot messages. I'm currently running on Debian 8 XFCE.

When I switch my machine on, I want a splash image to be shown until system is ready and shows a web browser in full screen mode.

So does anybody have any experience with that?
