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?
Have you considered reading the doc ? Or even the recalbox.conf ?

@ransom If it works with N64 then you really should have a look at https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Video-configuration-detailled-(EN)#per-emulator-video-mode 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 HDMIfor snes, or fba_libretro.videomode=blabla for fba... in your
global.videomodeto 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 ?
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
