I have from some days a Raspberry PI 3B +, taken mainly for emulation.
After testing other distributions I have chosen Batocera for ease of use and interface cleaning.
Really congratulations to the developer, it is incredible that he did all this alone.
I find this distribution perfect for my purposes, and I solved almost all the problems I encountered during the installation, also thanks to the help of this forum.
I have only a couple of doubts that I hope you can help me to solve.
Even though I have a rasberry pi 3b +, batocera sees it as a normal pi 3b, with initial clock settings of 1200Mhz. So is my raspberry running underclock or does it work at 1400MHz anyway? Can overclocking values be used for something? Should I set it to 1350 or leave it with default settings?
I have configured 27 systems on EmulationStation, all of which work perfectly without jamming and at full speed. All except MAME games, for which I used the 0.139 romset with the MAME2010 core.
In reality, almost all games run very well, but there are some that inexplicably freeze the system. For example, Galaxian from Namco. It starts for a couple of seconds then ... freezes. Another example is Arkanoid; as soon as you use the mouse and press the right button to launch the ball... again the system freezes.
I use this romset with different android tvbox with retroarch and core MAME2010, and I've never had these problems, so the romset is ok.
I also tried to change SD card thinking it could be faulty, but in the end I only have problems with this core. All other platforms (FBA libretro, SNES, NES, SEGA CD, PC ENGINE etc.) run without any problem.
I know it would be better to use the MAME2003, but it is really too old and missing several of the games that I want to have and that I find in 139.
Sorry for the length of the post, I hope you can help me to solve these last settings to have the PERFECT Emulation System.
