    Hello all I’m having abit of trouble with my Pi playing some n64 games. So let me start off by giving some of the specifics. Raspberry Pi 2, retro Pi 3.1 image, it’s clocked to the second fastest speed, snes usb controllers. When I go into my Pi thru my home network I open the rom folder and only see 1 n64 emulator listed. I’ve read that there were 2 at one point? One played games better than others?lets specifically speak about Mario kart it loads with the Nintendo swinging fine, the cover screen works fine, but once I press the start button the picture is fuzzy top to bottom, the audio works, the game even though the screen is just fuzzy/scrambled still functions and can choose all choices to get to the race… Other games like f1 work ok minus some small details only being scrambled, like the shift lights etc… game works fine, I can live with that.

    Can anyone explain to me how to get my n64 dialled in so it works nice. I am by no means a Linux programmer so a detailed step by step Is needed. I’m working on understanding certain functions and this site is certainly helping with that. Every other system works perfect, just this little setback. So I know I am new here and don’t have any neat things to contribute but I guess this post could help someone else.

    Thanks

    BTW if you’re using snes controllers, the configs for mupen64plus are different than lr-mupen64. it might be easiest for you to make a backup of your image and do a full binary update to include the latest autoconfigs for the n64, so you don’t have to mess with manual configs.

    Or you can wait a few weeks for the next release of retropie.

    A couple of weeks? I’m sure it will be worth the wait what else will the update do?

    It just updates the latest changes to retropie, but its possible some configurations may be overwritten, but most are easy to do again provided you haven’t made too many customisations. A full binary update is essentially the latest release of retropie.
