I installed RetroPie (binary packages via the RetroPie script) on my Raspberry Pi 2 last night and it looks pretty snazzy. I started it up, messed around with it, and liked what I saw. But when I started playing games, I hit a wall.
When I play a big game like Seiken Densetsu 3, the sound is terrible (crackling and can’t keep up with the game). The emulator I’m using is snes9x-next. The reason for that is because that’s the only emulator which can actually display the ROM correctly (textures, text, and all).
I have overclocked the device to the “High” settings, yet that hasn’t solved the problem. I have also changed the “audio_driver” setting in the retroarch configuration file (retroarch.cfg) to “sdl2” as well as “alsathread,” but those haven’t helped, either. Also, other emulators haven’t run properly.
I have tried PocketSNES, but the resolution doesn’t look so good. PiSNES can’t even render the resolution properly. And other available emulators don’t even hold a candle to PiSNES nor snes9x-next.
