    Hi. I’m using retropie 3.1 and I cannot for the life of me make the emulators automatically load a specific filter. can anyone specifically tell me what exactly I have to change in the retroarch config files so hq2x2.glslp loads automatically for retroarch emulators?



    If you want to apply this to ALL RetroArch emulators, edit the retroarch.cfg with this command:
    “sudo nano /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg”

    Then change
    # video_shader_enable = false
    video_shader_enable = true

    And change
    # video_shader = “/path/to/shader.{cg,cgp,glsl,glslp}”
    video_shader = /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/shader/hq2x2.glslp

    You may also want to consider changing this from
    video_smooth = true
    video_smooth = false

    depending on how you want the shader to look.

    Make sure you save the file when prompted (press Ctrl-X to exit)

    Or you could consider overlays

    Thanks. I have realised I made a rookie error and not removed ‘#’ from the command line. Thank you very much
