Question Cannot enable shaders in lr-mame2003
Posted by: chupo_cro - 04-25-2017, 03:09 PM - Forum: Support area - Replies (8)

Hi all,

my first post here. I've been playing arcade games since late '70s and was using MAME since the first releases with just a few working games until around 2010. and now I rediscovered emulators running on SBCs.

Now to the problem...

I have a fresh install of RetrOrangePi on Orange Pi PC and I am amazed how well it works. However, I have one problem - for some reason I cannot enable .glsl shaders (I would like to enable them for libretro emulators).

I have 0.78 romset for lr-mame2003 and 'MAME 4 Droid 0.375b' romset (whichever it is - it is not 0.37b5 but is 0.375b and it contains 2271 roms, I thing there is a typing mistake in the file name).

I tried to enable the shaders using frontend via Retropie > Configuration Editor > Configure basic libretro emulator options > Configure additional options for mame-libretro. I changed Video Shader Enabled to True and tried to set different .glsl files under Video Shader File but there wasn't any changes.

On the other hand, overlays do work as expected.

I  wonder if there is a conflict with some of the options that could be set via Retropie > Retroarch. I do not exactly understand the following options:

- Load Content-specific core options autamatically
- Load Override Files Automatically
- Load Remap Files Automatically

I do understand there are three levels (global, emulator specific, game specific) of .cfg files but it is not clear to me which level of scope is this Retropie > Retroarch configuration. Although it may sound unbelievable I couldn't find any clear explanations or manuals explaining usage of the mentioned menu :-/

I did't post any configuration files because I am using a fresh install so all of the files are the default ones, the only change is I enabled the shaders.

  Frotz for Z Machine (Infocom)
Posted by: HappyMacXL - 04-24-2017, 02:25 PM - Forum: Support area - Replies (1)

Hi all,

Does anyone have Eric Renfro's guide to setting up Frotz so that ROPi can run Z Machine games please? Or are there other guides?

I'm sure it was previously in one of the package lists (maybe Experimental) but its definitely not there now.

  PPSSPP best options
Posted by: Lamerjack - 04-21-2017, 10:32 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (1)

i made some test with options to improve performances

first of all from ssh i run cpufreq-set -g performance (will be great to integrate with launcher and at the end restore the original)
and in PPSSPP system option i turn on multithread
these two give a good speedup.

i leave Rendering Mode to Non Buffered Rendering if i don't see nothing i switch to Buffered Rendering
autoframeskip off (on my system lower the resolution)
i set manually frameskip to 0 1 or 3 (seems that odd numbers works better)
bezier curves to medium quality
Lazy Texture Caching to on
Retain Changed Textures off

The build that is included where it came from?
I saw that the 1.4 is out...
But the source is for i386 or AMD64.

  aspect ratio weird on 5:4 monitor ROPI 3.0.1/orangepi plus 2
Posted by: dinkster - 04-20-2017, 06:14 AM - Forum: Support area - Replies (1)

how can i get the games to fill the screen, they only seam to be wide screen even though the original games are not, this happens on all games.
on retropie i could set the aspect ratio in the retroarch settings, this option is not available in retroarch in retroorangepi.

also all teh videos i see show the retropie style retroarch menus, grey and green, for some reason i see android style menus with less options, is this correct? im running a orangepi plus 2
