Cannot perform Hotkey commands on N64



  • I want to access the Retroarch menu in the N64 emulator so I can disable the enhanced resolution option so the games can run more smoothly. My Pi 2 is already overclocked and if too much happens on the screen (the intro cinematic to mischief makers, getting star points in Paper Mario) the game will slow down immensely and would sometimes crash. The problem is that I use a PS3 controller, and whenever I press the home key as my hotkey, the game automatically shuts down. I understand that Recalbox does not automate the N64 emulator, but Retropie does not either and I could still access the Retroarch menu for it. Thank you guys in advance.

    Bonjour sorry i speak a little be english : use recalbox 3.3.0 beta ? recalbox use mupen64plus emulator , no libretro core of retroarch like retropie. Look this link may be help : https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Configure-N64-controllers-(EN) and this to : https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Compatibility-list-N64-(EN)



  • Merci, mon ami. I do have the latest installation of recalbox OS. Your first link is a big help and I'm in a bit of a shock I did not notice it the first time around. I will play around with some of the configurations now.

    Hi @zedespo, strange, I've played to Mario Paper about 30min during my tests, and I haven't had slow down problems. Are you using gliden64 as video plugin ? N64 section of your recalbox.conf file look like this :

    ## N64 core (gliden64,n64,rice)
    ## The recommanded plugin is gliden64, but if your game is not compatible, you can try n64 or rice plugins.
    n64.core=gliden64
    n64.videomode=DMT 9 HDMI
    ## If you are using a CRT screen, please change the setting above with this one : 
    ;n64.videomode=default
    

    if don't, please update your recalbox.conf, using recalbox.conf.template in the folder.
