    Hello I recently bought this screen (http://www.wvshare.com/product/4inch-RPi-LCD-A.htm) with the intent of using it with my Raspberry Pi, running RetroPie, to make a sort of portable emulator. The screen worked just fine on the normal Raspberry Pi OS, but when I tried to use it with RetroPie, it just gives me a white screen. Can anyone help me with this?

    I usually never reply to posts of any kind.. But in this case just to help you out I will…
    It took me a while to get it to work, but here it is.
    For some reason I cant make Emulationstation to natively work with FB1, but there is a little app that mirrors both devs,
    the apps is at https://github.com/tasanakorn/rpi-fbcp
    once configure run it like this
    ./fbcp &

    and then just run emulationstation (even if your screen flickers)

    Thank you so much, totibross. Is there by any chance, a tutorial that I could look at, that would teach me how to use the app? Like how to download and configure it?
