    this ist my first post. So on.
    Im running RetroPie on a Raspberry Pi 2 B with Berryboot. It works good (booting, start retropie). But there is one thing.
    I tried Version 2.6.0 and 3.0beta2 and i have always the same Problem. I only used one NES game and it runs a bit (about 10%) to fast, than the original Game on a Nintendo NES. Although the Musik in the game is a bit faster. Controller (PSOne USB) Commands work straight through with no lag. I have no promlem with them Demo games (Doom, Quake …). The nes game runs normal on a PC Emulator (Nestopia).
    Has someone an idea for this problem.

    get the NTSC version of the game rather than the PAL version.

    Thanks for the answer.

    It also works to change the Name of the file, for example:

    “GameName.System” -> “GameName (E).System”

    Then the speed is correct.
