First of all, i must say that i’am french and my english is,quite poor, so i’ll make my best to be understood.
I’am running LAKKA on a Raspberry Pi3. It works fine, but there is something that annoys me.
When i load a nes rom from the nes playlist, no problem if it’s an US rom, but if it’s an european Rom (PAL-50hz), the game plays in 60hz, so the music and gameplay is too fast ! Seems like Mario had took ecstasy.
I’ve found out that if i go in the core options, in Nestopia, and change “favored system” by “Pal” instead of “Auto” while i’am running a pal game, everything is ok and the game runs at the good speed, the fps indicator turned on showing 50 fps instead of 60hz.
The matter is that if i then run a US Rom (NTSC - 60hz), leaving “pal” as “favored system”, then the game is too slow, because it’s playing at the wrong speed of 50hz. So i go back in the “favored system” tab and change “pal” by “auto”, and it’s ok for US roms…
I use NO-INTRO nes roms. I tried with the same rom on Nestopia on my windows laptop, and the “auto” option in “favored system” works fine… But it seems that in LAKKA Nestopia doesn’t take care of that option, running all roms, PAL or NTSC, at the default mode of 60hz.
It’s ok for me to change the option “favored system” by “Pal” or “Auto” depending the rom i’am playing, but it should be very cool that the “auto” option would work fine…
Notice that i’ve absolutely no problem with others systems i use in Lakka : SNES, GENESIS, master system, Game boy etc are ok, switching from 50 to 60hz depending of the version of the rom i’am playing… Was a litlle bit suprised to play alex kid so fast, but discovered that it was the correct speed, instead of 50hz gameplay of my french kid memories
And also i tried to put the file “NstDatabase.xml” in the “system” share through Samba, did not change nothing…
thanks in advance for your help !
