Fortunately, we are already at home and my wife is recovering slowly. I appreciate your comments again. While I wont new challenges with ODROID-C1 and the Raspberry Pi 2, but that we will see in the blog. Now just read the weekly summary dedicated almost exclusively to emulators. Are you interested?...

Raspberry Pi 2 PSX Emulation: 27 Playstation 1 Games Tested
  • Raspberry Gear: My brother gave me for Christmas a Game Gear. I think it has been the only handheld that we had at the time. Now the retro is on the top, I do not mind play it anywhere, so this tutorial will help to you to insert a RPi into it | > Raspberry-Gear

  • Black screen on Raspbian with games using SDL 1.2 Library: Unpleasant surprise we found on Raspbian and the new version of their Kernel when we want to run a game or emulator, as we screen goes black. Not suffer, is an error in the SDL 1.2 that is easily solved. Simply install this package with the corrected problem that works on any Raspberry Pi model (More info here):

sudo dpkg -i libsdl1.2debian_1.2.15-8rpi_armhf.deb
rm libsdl1.2debian_1.2.15-8rpi_armhf.deb
  • Amiga 500 & 1200 emulator with DispmanX: For those who do not know, DispmanX is a modification to a SDL Library to get high resolutions using hardware acceleration (GPU). In the following thread we can find the famous Uae4all2 modified so you can play the Amiga with 1080p resolution | > UAE4ALL2 : Amiga 500 & 1200 emulator with DispmanX


  • recalbox-os v3.2.4: PiPlay, RetroPie, Lakka, OctopusPI, ChameleonPi,... There are several of the best known dsitro emulators at the time. I think I've never talked about recalbox, so now I leave you the link to the blog and the git repository to get the latest version. I will talk about this distro in the near future so that you may know further. | > recalbox-os/releases
