Quick game search on Recalbox 7.1.1



  • Hello, I forgot what was a hotkey for quick game search (New feature in this version) I mapped new joypads and I can't remember now. Was it L shoulder and X or something?

  • Thanks @Zing I read the guide and change the values in config.txt with no effect so I changed them to default. Then I added overscan_scale=1, changed ratio of my screen to 4:3, rebooted it
    and disaster happened. Im ended up with grey screen after each reboot. So I disconnected RPi ,connected my laptop via VGA cable and still have grey screen. Im using HDMI converter pcb board so I thought I possibly fried it? So then I disconnected the board, connected original game which came with Arcade 1Up machine and I have game sound but still have grey screen! It it even possible to damage LCD screen by switching resolution on pcb board? If my wife find out I broke Arcade 1Up machine she will kill me. I'm already panicking
    What shall I do?

    What shall I do?

    First of all, I recommend that you calm down, whatever happened, panicking will not help you. 😬

    It it even possible to damage LCD screen by switching resolution on pcb board

    I never heard any reports of this, I believe that it is not possible, the worst that should happen would be a buggy resolution, it could not damage the hardware, because you cannot overload the hadware to that level just by changing the resolution.

    If the hardware was actually damaged, it must have been a coincidence (and very unlucky).

    Test your Rpi on another monitor/TV with another cable.

    I have no technical knowledge about PCB boards, but maybe there is a problem with the converter, you would need to check this, maybe it is just a faulty contact.



  • @Zing Thank you, I did everything, plugged RPI to different monitor and I had picture, then I plugged original arcade game which came with the cabinet and still had grey screen but sound was coming from the game. I found some horror stories of people damaging their screen with wrong PCB HDMI converter, which was sending wrong signal, resetting their display, etc. then I noticed I also bought wrong one, that's why bottom of the ES menu was cutting off in the first place! So while I was looking for replacement monitor on eBay I ordered correct converter suitable for my Arcade1Up display. I connected today and...
    It worked! Display is sharp as supposed to be, all in great 4:3 ratio!
    I literally went down on my knees and kissed my cabinet, hahaha!
    Glad I didn't tell my wife (since she paid for my arcade cabinet) but I promised to myself to be careful and read everything twice before making a decision - and stop tinkering with Arcades and just enjoy playing it!
    Thank you again for listening and replying 🙂 🙂
