Raspberry Pi 5

Afternoon all, has anybody lucky enough to preview the rasberry pi 5 got lakka up and running? If so has anybody tried out vulkan support and in particular the hdr support in vulkan for it? Thanks

I’ve got one but having problems. Moving the drive that worked fine on my RPi4, I get the error “The installed operating system does not indicate support for Raspberry Pi 5” Adding “os_check=0” to my config.txt results in a blank screen after BIOS


Yes that wont work - we need to wait for a pi5 lakka image before itll work.

I tested the latest nightly on the Pi 5 just now, it’s pretty good. Even GC is performing well… it’s quite the powerhouse this little board.


Yes Ive heard Dreamcast is viable. Im really waiting for Vulkan support so I can try out hdr support.

This is good news. :slight_smile:

Is the Dolphin core running on the rpi5 ?

Affirmative, and reasonably well too (at 1x scaling so far).

GameCube emulation is quite unstable here. The core freezes most of the time.

Do you run PAL games and did you manage to run them in PAL60 ? Mine run at 50 fps but with a 20% speed increase.

Hi! Where do you download the .img for the pi5? I can only find the one for the pi4, thanks

I didn’t notice any major instability, but to be clear I was testing the easier to run games like TLOZ-WW/TP and Pikmin etc, FZ GX for example is no go at the moment, would likely need the Vulkan backend at least.

I had frequent crashes with Zelda WW. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that the core couldn’t run the PAL version of the game with the right timings.
