@herbfargus thank you kindly!
So i re-installed Jessie.
Then i installed the LCD driver.
Next i installed RetroPie.
RetroPie shows on HDMI.
Switch to LCD terminal.

sudo raspi-config
expand filesystem

disable overscan

force audio to 3.5mm 

advanced options >> enable Device Tree

advanced options >> enable SPI >> load SPI kernel module by default

sudo reboot

Next
FBCP

sudo apt-get install cmake
git clone https://github.com/tasanakorn/rpi-fbcp
cd rpi-fbcp/
mkdir build
cd build/
cmake ..
make
sudo mkdir /usr/local/bin
sudo install fbcp /usr/local/bin/fbcp

Next
/etc/profile.d/10-emulationstation.sh

on its own on the second line before emulationstation is called.

/usr/local/bin/fbcp &

/boot/config.txt


sudo nano /boot/config.txt
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_cvt=320 240 60 1 0 0 0 
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=87

and finally
sudo nano /home/pi/emulationstation.sh

#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/local/fbcp &
emulationstation
sudo chmod +x emulationstation.sh

Not sure if the last one did anything, but after reboot RetroPie loaded on the LCD 🙂
