    Hi, i have a fresh install of retropie working now.
    I also transferred a lot of n64 game roms to the n64 folder.

    Now i can’t get it working. How can i make the n64 emulator working?
    Is it allready on the system? Or do i have to install it?

    Never mind….. Can start it now…

    Other thing. Picture is garbled sometimes.. One big mess…
    And i have a wireless usb keyboard. Can i use that to play games?

    The picture was garbled on mine- I changed the overclock settings to pi2 and it seemed to solve it. then I made a few other tweaks in the configs to make it run a little better. This video was really helpful to me in getting my N64 games to work (I’m using a Raspberry Pi 2 model B. if you have a B+ it’s doubtful you’ll ever get any satisfactory results on N64 emulation.)

    (and yes you can use your wireless keyboard to play if you so desire)

    I have the new pi2b also. Overclock is set to pi2.

    if you are using a .zip file and placing the rom in the n64 folder, try unzipping the file and placing it in the mupen64plus folder and see if that makes any difference

    This is the post I used to make mario kart work on mine:

    I got it working now. But some games seem to stay black. Maybe a region thing?
