After months (year?) of that stuff still packed (  oppps ), I've finally found time to test THE ultimate setup for me, which is :

Raspberry 3 -> Pi2Jamma + Pi2Scart  arrow



I was afraid to spend hours and hours doc reading to make all that stuff working... and ... finally NOT AT ALL. It's as easy as your ABC!

The result is just awesome! Full 15khz RGB / 60 Hz / 1:1 ratio pixel perfect
I've used few games who have perfectly smooth scrolling to test  ...





It's so smoothhhhhh  Kiss Pictures don't do justice... display looks amazing! And the emulation is reallllly good!  Kiss
I'll definitively use this setup to replace old computer or these crappy x in one chinese boards!

Thank Jochen for providing me the Pi2Scart adapter, which does a fantastic job (picture is brighter with it).

On the negative side, I had several time this bug, while browsing fast the games available on the USB stick :



Any idea what is the problem?

Oh, and I can't remove the front end music (can't find anything related to the sound in the option menu?). How to remove it ?

Finally will it be possible to configure the software to load one game only and disable the escape button?

Thx again for this amazing product!  Kiss Kiss Kiss

Thanks for your review and sorry for the late reply.

Issue 1 : software expects the pi2jamma  joystick. Just turn on the pi2scart mode to turn off the pi2jamma joystick in the software.

Issue 2 : the music is placed on the usb stick in folder menu-audio. Replace or delete this files. New version has additionally the features toggle music on / off and set volume.

Issue 3 : option - lock game or unlock game for disabling or enabling escape from game.

Hope this helps.
Jochen

looks great. Smiley) I like the centipede artwork Smiley)

for editing files with root rights you need to login as root.

type su
pass root

then you are allowed to edit files you questioned.

Alternative : use console image, goto "options"-"command shell"

Cheers

some updates.

first batch is sold, 2nd is on the way.

Some guys made very nice Graphical Menus für the Pi2jamma.






We made progress on the so called pixel perfect resolutions. I general it was not possible to switch resoltuions without editing the config.txt and make a reboot.

We have now made a dynamic resolution switcher. It works on the basis of a resolution table for each games. When the game is selected the according resoolution will be sest and the game started.

The resoltion table was generated from the roms itself. But sure, the resolutions can be modified in that table to meet specific CRT model and such.

Other stuff is integration of more fs types to support more windows made usb sticks, C64 emulator can be started from shell, to play barbarian, chopping of some heads....
