Scripting / Re: Screenshots and how to check if a file exists
« Last post by zpaolo11x on Today at 12:38:06 AM »
This is the status so far: with a custom control from "on_signal" I can find the latest screenshot in the AM folder, launch another screenshot, then I let the ticks routine find the newly created screenshot and load it into a surface with shaders.

Sadly I can't seem to make it work with overlay display calls :(

Linux is case sensitive, so that might have something to do with it. Which theme are you trying?

If you're looking at using Linux for a cab, I suggest you give my ISO a try - instructions here.
Themes / SNES Classic Theme release
« Last post by caminiti45 on Yesterday at 06:37:34 PM »
Thanks to Davbarc for making the NES Classic Theme this is based off of.

Video of it in action:

SNES Classic US Theme

SNES Classic EU Theme

SNES Classic JP Theme

-This theme runs poorly on the rpi3 and I doubt it will do much better on the 3b+, but let me know if it does. I recommend using this theme in attract mode for windows.

-Use the following picture as a reference for setting up the controller buttons in attract mode. Shoulder buttons, X and Y can be whatever you want.

-Place the files in the borders folder in retroarch/overlays/borders. You will need to configure a hot key in retroarch if you would like to change them on the fly.

-Keep artwork file sizes small. The ones that get scraped are huge. Use an image resizer to reduce their size.

-Place the files in the sounds folder in yourattractmodefolder/sounds. One is the menu music and the others are navigation sounds. These will need to be setup manually in attract mode.

-This is by no means perfect. I was a total noob when I attempted this project. If you get it working smoother and more accurately, please share with the group.

-Have fun!

General / Re: audio formats ?
« Last post by Favdeacon on Yesterday at 04:40:54 AM »
The least amount of cpu would surely be taken by direct passthrough of DTS or AC3, if the audio equipment can process it. And you'll have to use the HDMI audio output for that AFAIK.

Apart from that, I found this Audio Formats Comparison. I am just a layman in audio formats, but if decoding speed is any indication for less computing power needed, FLAC leads before MPEG-1 Layer-3 (MP3) and Musepack according to the tests listed there.

By the way, why are you asking only about audio formats and not about video formats?

edit: If you're using the 3.5mm audio jack of the Pi, you may also want to test the improved (if experimental) audio driver by adding audio_pwm_mode=2 to your /boot/config.txt. Although it may not lessen the strain on the CPU, it improved the sound quality on my Pi significantly and it got rid of an annoying electric noise in the background. See for an overview of the Pi's internal and optional audio hardware.
