Recalbox resolution

  • Hi.

    I am running recalbox with retroarch and am having an awful time trying to figure out how to change resolution on all emulator cores in retroarch.

    I am running an arcade cabinet with a crt wellsgardener monitor which has 800x600 max resolution. Running a hdmi cable from rpi3 ti hdmitovga converter then Into the arcade monitor.

    I figured out a command line in config.txt on how to get emulation station showing on the monitor, but when I run any core from retroarch or fba I get an out of sync error.

    I have messed with many different configs in config.txt and recalbox.conf file but I cannot work out why it is doing this.

    The hdmitovga adaptor works as I can run an image I have on retropie fine with adaptor and all looks good.

    N64 works fine all the rest of the cores drop out out of sync.

    Any help please?

  • @ransom hi
    Have you considered reading the doc ? Or even the recalbox.conf ?

  • @substring I have multiple times. And tried many different changes. But got no change in result.

  • @ransom If it works with N64 then you really should have a look at you'll see n64.videomode=DMT 4 HDMI (which is the defeault setting for N64)

    So, try to add for example snes.videomode=DMT 4 HDMI for snes, or fba_libretro.videomode=blabla for fba... in your /recalbox/share/system/recalbox.conf file

  • @ransom setting global.videomode to either default or auto should work just perfect for you. You may still need to set the right hdmi group/mode in /boot/config.txt

  • Great thanks for your replies I will try this out and get back to you.

    I recall i did try global setting as default and it did not change. But it looks I may have to manually change each emulators configs for now ;)

    My HDMI mode and group is 2 & 9 for it to show emulation station without any out of sync problems.

  • @ransom the global meode is enough, you don't need to do it per emulator. Can you make a support archive please ?

  • @sylgaud

    I used =DMT 4 HDMI on all parts of the recalbox.conf and it now works. Thank you..

    Now it's time to work out how I remap my key binds?

    In retroarch gui only has the ability to remap buttons 1,2 &3 but not 4,5 & 6?

    In neogeo emulator not sure how to re bind my button controls? anyone??

    @substring What is a support archive?

  • @ransom plug your pi to network then http://recalbox/help if you're on windows, otherwise http://recalbox.local/help for apples and penguins
