    Hi all…I am trying to piece together my bartop arcade and seem to be almost there. I have one issue I am hoping someone can solve:

    – When using my HDMI to VGA adapter out of my RPi, I get EmulationStation to work properly with no issues. As soon as I try to load a game, my screen goes blank and no video output. If I press F4, it will return to ES with no problem

    Everything works fine when connected directly to my HDMI TV..i.e. games and ES works. It seems to not work only with my HDMI-VGA adapter into my VGA monitor has issues.

    Any help would be great!



    What happens when you set the video value to ‘1’ in es_systems.cfg?

    There is some info here:

    Thank you very much! Changing the value in the es_systems.cfg to “1” from “4” worked. Very much appreciated!
