Re: USB Arcade Encoder Deadzones on Analog non-configurable

If anybody has a similar problem, I ended up finding a solution. Don't know if its the best solution but it is satisfactory for me. I edited /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-joystick.conf and added Option "MapAxis1" "deadzone=200" the default is 1000 you would have to do this for an...

Re: toggle between the desktop on my Raspberry 4 and Retropie

Wow, that is pretty cool! I didn't know the retropie offered that and I may use that in my project. Thanks for checking back and following up.

Re: toggle between the desktop on my Raspberry 4 and Retropie

No problem, Daddysz. If right now you press F4 while in RetroPie, it should exit to prompt.

Type:

Code: Select all

startx
If your desktop appears, then just work on getting your Pi 4 to boot to command prompt.

Then you can just type either

Code: Select all

startx
or

Code: Select all

Re: RPI4 8G Mobile Project

Are you powering just the Pi 4 and a controller or is there a screen too? What uptime are you shooting for? Honestly I would look for something made specifically for Pi like the PiSuger S pro but that is only 5000mAh however that may give you a couple hours or so depending on your setup. There were ...

I need more information. You have a Raspberry Pi running an emulated coin pusher game?

How did you do this?

Could it be PinMame somehow compiled on the Pi?

USB Arcade Encoder Deadzones on Analog non-configurable

Hello all, I have a USB Digital/Analog encoder that mimics a PS3 controller. I have hooked up third party sticks and potentiometers to it and everything works well except there are persistent deadzones. I have removed the deadzones in udev and did the correct storing of the new settings but when I u...

Hey,

I think you need to setup the inputs within RetroArch also. Open retroarch from Retropie. It's in the main menu, settings, input. You can configure each port from there.

Re: HDMI needed for DSI LCD screen?

My project is more then half complete. I was just asking about the hdmi being disabled but thanks. Right now I want a Pi with good Amiga performance and to me it seemed like the Pi 3b was a decent choice. I already have a pretty hefty battery, I am just looking to squeeze as much as I can.

Re: HDMI needed for DSI LCD screen?

You don't say which model of Pi you're planning to use. Depending on your actual compute performance requirements, you may be able to run on less power by using an earlier model Pi. Depending on how many peripherals you need to connect, you might be able to use an A+ or Pi3A+, which--lacking the US...

Thanks for the reply and correction! I was planning on turning off as much as possible. I read here https://learn.pi-supply.com/make/how-to-save-power-on-your-raspberry-pi/ that turning off the HDMI port would save around 30mA, which seemed to equate to around 20 more mins of run time.

That's a great point. I just asked on their support forum.
