On exit from jzintv, I get a black screen and the pi is completely unresponsive. I can SSH into the pi but sudo reboot doesn’t work. The only way to reset the pi is through a power cycle. There is a long-running issue at the ES github (../EmulationStation/issues/206) that suggests that it’s affecting other non-Retroarch emulators such as VICE.
I also followed this thread ../atari-2600-stella-locks-up-after-exit/ which described a similar situation to mine. I have tried to enable dispmanx for jzintv. I installed dispmanx from the (updated) Retropie setup script and then enabled it for jzintv, also from the setup script. I am still getting a black screen on exit. Now I’m not sure whether dispmanx doesn’t solve the issue for jzintv or whether dispmanx wasn’t enabled as I had compiled jzintv from an alternative source to the Retropie script.
(or run the main install binaries script again which will run configure for everything). the dispmanx configuration requires that the es_system.cfg is updated with latest configuration from the jzintv retropie module.
I have found out why dispmanx wasn’t enabled. It was because I hadn’t updated the runcommand script since June 2014. In any case, I ran sudo ./retropie_packages.sh jzintv configure
as it provided the command to make sure dispmanx was enabled for jzintv.
Now a rom will not launch. I get the following output in the console:
ERROR: MAC Dispmanx - the program is calling SDL_ListModes. That shouldn't happen.
Powering on HDMI with preferred setting
before returning to ES.
Incidentally, I could only get audio for the new build of jzintv by adding a -a22050 flag.
