Need help with mouse support in Retropie

I've got a Raspberry Pi4 - 4GB model - and I've got the beta version of RetroPie installed. I've got most games to work fine with controllers, but I can't get my head around getting games to work with a mouse for shooting games like Operation Wolf on Mame or games like Wild Gunman on the NES emulato...

Re: Advice on what Pi to buy

You could try disabling xcompmgr, as that seems to fix tearing issues in a lot of cases. That worked perfectly. Not only is the tearing gone, but the games are also much smoother. 👍 Now I've got one last BIG ISSUE. Save and load states. I can't get it to work at all. It's supposed to be: Select + R...

Re: Advice on what Pi to buy

RE: screen tearing: In the RetroArch config file (/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg), ensure that video_vsync = true The problem is it's already set to = true. Any ideas? Raspbian seems to have a sync issue anyway in the desktop. Since Retropie for Pi4 is in beta, it has to run on top of Rasb...

Re: Advice on what Pi to buy

I got my Pi4 yesterday, installing into the Flirc case was a sinch and I installed Retropie using a video from YouTuber 'ETA Prime'. It's working, but I've got some questions: Retropie is working and the games I've added are working. However, there seems to be some screen tearing going on. Is it pos...

Re: Advice on what Pie to buy

I've ordered a Pi4 4GB, the Flirc case, 64GB micro Card, micro HDMI cable and official power supply from The Pi Hut.

Excited! 😊

Re: Advice on what Pie to buy

That Flirc case looks really nice too. I think I'll go for that one then. That ICE tower looks like a mini version the Heatsink-fan I've got sitting inside my gaming PC that I built just over a year ago lol I'm also interested in some Amiga Emulation too. Is NOOBS what I need to run more than one OS...

Advice on what Pi to buy

Hey guys! Being a retro gamer as I am, I'm really interested now in trying out a Rasberry Pi as an emulation device I can just plug into my 42" TV. I've looked at the Pi 4 and I'm not sure what's best to get. I understand that the newest hardware gets pretty hot, does it really need a fan? Won't the...

Re: TheC64!

I got multi disks to work, you do it via the 'classic mode'. Swapping discs is easy bring up the menu button, access the flash drive and swap disks.

I've still had to make CJM files to turn on true drive emulation to get some games to load. Platoon was one of those games.

Re: TheC64!

The '8-bit Guy' has a review on his channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxx2F4ffmeE I'm impressed with mine, I never owned the Mini so a full size model was a no brainer for me. As well as opening it up, he also tests the latency using a program he wrote on a real Commodore 64 on TheC64, which r...

Re: TheC64!

I've got my 'TheC64' It's great. The built quality is excellent. My concerns about the keyboard were unfounded it's rather good, not quite as good as a real Breadbin original C64, but pretty close. The included games are okay, but the real beauty is loading your own. And it's a sinch on TheC64, just...

Tempted to buy Luigi's Mansion 3. It looks adorable and Digital Foundry were quite fond of it from a technical perspective.

Re: TheC64!

Rather than make new post I thought I'd just update this one.

Anyway had an email today regarding shipping. My C64 is arriving on Thursday all being well. Looking forward to it 😃😃

Re: TheC64!

Might be worth clarifying here: when I say the C64 is marketed as a fully functional computer, that's clearly my take on it. Basically because of the inclusion of a full keyboard. Mostly, what I'm worried about is the build quality of the case. It's tempting to slap down a pre-order right away, but...
