    Hello Everyone.

    I just got my raspberry pi 3 and installed retropie

    When i go through the menus on retropie some text are not crisp, image is not good.

    It can be because of a hdmi cable icompatibility?

    It is very strange. Pie works fine the only thing is the image which is not like the videos i´ve seen when people go through menus and all.

    I also tried on two different tvs with the same results.

    Here i uploaded a youtube video where you will see better.

    OK, so i tried on another monitor and now it looks good, but the problem is that when i go through the menus the transition is not so smooth.

    I have a raspberry pi 3 and i´m surprised of this behaviour

    it is normal?

    Thanks a lot

    I’ve had this problem for ages. It seems to be some inherent problem with Emulationstation. I raised a ticket on the Github for ES but development seems to have ended!
