  • @acris thank you so much, some how i miss that part in the wiki thank you for pointing it out to me sorry about that, some how i missed it. thank you, i hope i can get it to work now



  • @quills I'm the one who wwrote the wiki acris mentionned, feel free to ask if you ever have any question



  • ok went in and looked at all the setting so far so good till this happen
    https://flic.kr/p/RvjEEP if you look at the pic you will see running it via hdmi to dvi and ruing native what my monitor wants all other resolution looks out of wack and stretched out . any ideas? or am i going to have to use retropie (works flawless on it).



  • @quills please make a pastebin of your config.txt and your recalbox.conf



  • ****ony part i changed in the recalbox.conf

    # ------------ H - HERE IT IS - GLOBAL EMULATOR CONFIGURATION ------------ #
    ## The global value will be used for all emulators, except if the value
    ## is redefined in the emulator
    
    ## Set game resolution for emulators
    ## select your mode from the command : tvservice -m [MODE]
    ## CEA 5 HDMI : 1920x1080 @ 60Hz 16:9, clock:74MHz interlaced
    ## CEA 4 HDMI : 1280x720 @ 60Hz 16:9, clock:74MHz progressive
    ## use 'default' for using the default resolution
    ## (string)
    global.videomode=default
    

    btw did the same thing with i set it for dmt 57

  • @quills i'd rather have your full recalbox.conf as i want to see it all 🙂



  • and you said you're using HDMI2DVI ? Have you read https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Connect-your-recalbox-to-a-DVI-screen-(EN) ? because i see you still have hdmi_drive=2



  • here the recalbox.conf and btw keeping it or removing it makes no different. but i do what to thank you for the help. i really do mean it .

    ## You can use pifba or a libretro core (fba2x,libretro)

    ## N64 emulator is configured to display a screen with a 640x480 resolution (native n64 resolution)
    ## So you must use one of these video modes (DMT 4 HDMI,CEA 1 HDMI).
    ## If your screen is not compatible with one of these video modes, please check the recalbox's wiki.
    n64.videomode=DMT 4 HDMI
    ## If you are using a CRT screen, please change the setting above with this one :
    # n64.videomode=default
