    Hi All

    I am using a HDMI to VGA converter and I trying to run RetroPie at 1024×760.

    I have edited the main config but it always stars at 640×480.

    # uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display’s size minus
    # overscan.
    framebuffer_width=1024
    framebuffer_height=768

    I also have to enable hdmi_force_hotplug=1 or I don’t get an image at all, do you think this has something to do with it?

    # uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output
    hdmi_force_hotplug=1

    any help appreciated .

    Thanks
    B

    I have sussed it but its a bit annoying.

    I have to load into the RetroPie frontend the Quit/Reboot so it basically loads it all again for a second time, only this time the resolutions is correct.

    Any ideas why?

    I built a minicade using a 10.1″ 1280×800 IPS display. It boots to 640×480, and upon reboot from ES, it goes to 720p. I have a basically identical unit with the same screen, and it boots at 1280/800, period. I am clueless as well.

    The only thing I put in config.txt was to force HDMI (on both) because the screen lags on startup.
