The only /boot/config.txt setting I had was sdtv_mode=2 "I have a pal tv that I use for the pi"
I did try increasing the cpu_freq to 900 and core_freq to 450 and that helped a little but still were not getting full speed.
Also to get any audio at all with any audio backend I had to
The only settings i changed in the retroarch.cfg was the
(alsa works perfect too if the game is running at full speed but even with 1% drop in speed and starts making a static noise)
I'm running a fresh rasbian installed from http://archive.raspbian.org/installer/r ... -19-12.zip
with nothing more extra installed than retroarch+pocketsnes+sdl and the libraries needed to run them. I don't have DE installed and run everything from the console
I realize that the sdl audio is a bit slower than alsa and makes the snes run even slower but atleast it doesn't turn the audio into a garbled mess when the emulator doesn't run at full speed.
Is there any way to optimize the emulator to make it run faster. As I think that would solve most of the audio issues.
Edit: forgot to add that I'm indeed using analog tv.
