I am having issues with my N64 roms on Retropie, everytime I try to play a game it is horribly choppy and the sound will cut out randomly. Also most text dialogues are unreadable. My super nintendo Roms work fine, which leads me to believe it may be a proformence issue
here are some additional details
Pi Model: 2b
RetroPie Version Used: 3.0.0 Beta
Built From: SD Image
USB Devices connected: Steelseries 3gc controller
Controller used: same as above
Have you tried utilizing either Mupen64plus-gles2n64 or Mupen64plus-gles2rice plugins? I had to mix it up on mine. Some games will work fine on one yet not so much on the other. Takes some time tinkering with each game to find the best fit. Some games just won’t run well at all no matter (even with overclocking).
When you select a game to play, you’ll notice it immediately goes to a black screen and up top will say press X or M to enter configuration. Press X and it will take you into a configuration screen that will allow you to change plugins. One will allow you to configure a default plugin for all roms in that emulator. With N64, you’ll want to select the option for selecting a plugin for that specific rom. I found that Mario Kart 64 and Super Mario 64, the Mupen64plus-gles2n64 plugin works awesome. Others, like ExciteBike 64 will work better with Mupen64plus-gles2rice.
