    I am using the latest retropie and, following some tips online, I tried to set the retroarch.cfg file to use SDL audio, and when I launch a rom it says it isn’t available and I have to use the default one (afsa or something).

    Final Fantasy 3 (SNES, US) music is the main problem I am having – it’s badly distorted. How can I get SDL enabled to try that out and see if it fixes it? Do I need to install SDL audio from somewhere? Alternatively, I have heard that switching to PiSNES might work better… but I want to keep RetroARch for mario RPG. Is it possible to make JUST FF3 launch with PiSNES and use RetroArch for all the rest?

    FWIW I have already overclocked to turbo and set audio sample rate to 44100 as suggested all over the place.



    Try sdl2 instead.



    Nope it said the same thing sdl2 not found. Available are just two other drivers (a… Something)



    Same here… Have been running “retroarch –features” and “SDL” is not listed…
