Pwm audio with retropie 4.4 and fresh install

Absolutely frustrated So I had an old version of retropie working perfectly incl pwm audio on a Gameboy ZERO with SPI screen. But the SD card is quite beaten up and have had a couple of years of abuse with forced shutdowns etc. so I decided to do a fresh install on a new SD card. I have installed re...

Re: Rodocop's 12th GBZ.

How did you connect sliding power switch? The power supply has a switch function but it only works with a push button like 1 click on 2 clicks off..

Sorry I don't have a RPI zero to test but it's been confirmed by JUJ himself that it will not work on RPI zero

I had seen Juj post this code over on the retropie forum. I struggle to see the improvements myself, but im sure it looks better in person.

Have you tried it on a zero?
not on zero, i think he confirmed over on youtube that code is hardcoded for RPI 3 gpu drivers.

Re: [Guide] ili-9341 true 60 fps fast refresh tutorial

Is there a way to connect this screen with your pcb easily. This would further minimise unwanted red pcb. Look what I found on AliExpress http://s.aliexpress.com/IRrqY7re if you have a look at this post.... https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=5614 the boards were designed to be used with...

Re: [Guide] ili-9341 true 60 fps fast refresh tutorial

Veteran gamer. While I was figuring this out how it works and how it compared to moosepr method, I tried various pin options but none worked except this one. The pins are hard coded in the code, which is based on adafruit gpio screen (you know the one that plug straight into the pi). So I dig the i...

Re: [Guide] ili-9341 true 60 fps fast refresh tutorial

does the GPIO for the BL (LED) and VCC (3.3V) matter (and also RST) (is it written into the script, or can you use other points) Some of the pins are hardcoded to follow the AdaFruit 2.8" PiTFT shield: https://github.com/juj/fbcp-ili9341/blob/da451b2cc1a6d3f065207c3705634c2ff3a65536/spi.h#L31 Yup t...

[Guide] ili-9341 true 60 fps fast refresh tutorial

so you got one of these red pcb SPI screens (mine is 2.8" diagonally) and have no clue how to connect it or how to make it run at a decent framerate. there has been better methods for Adafruit and Waveshare screens but to be honest they are really priced high and almost at the price of HDMI screens....

Re: [Guide] ili9341 SPI TFT Screen on Retropie

hooray!!! i think i have figured out how to run one of these red SPI screens (2.8") at 60 FPS and it is faster than this method but you can see interlacing. so a trade off between 60 fps vs interlaced display. i will do a video tomorrow as the pinout required will be different. I want to thank moose...
