#166

Hi! Will check tomorrow, have not tried the filters yet, other than following the guide for retro arch setup. Unsure if any are running. Will let you know !


#167

Just do what the guide says

So from the RetroArch repo do:

cd gfx/video_filters
make
mkdir -p ~/.config/retroarch/filters/
cp *.filt *.so ~/.config/retroarch/filters/video

Now edit your config and change the video_filter_dir too
video_filter_dir = “~/.config/retroarch/filters/video/”

Then under video settings go to video filters and pick one


#168

How do i access retro arch repo? Sorry im a total noob.


#169

if you followed the guide…
it means from the retroarch dir, you ran:

git clone https://github.com/libretro/RetroArch.git retroarch

So if you did that it would be

cd ~/retroarch

#170

thank you so much i did it! but where do i download the filters from? thanks


#171

@Wizz @fr500 This is weird, ive done this before lots of times but this has never happened before. i added the emulator but games only load up from retroarch. when i try to play the game from the snes folder in games i get a black screen. i would appreciate any help, thanks


#172

I don’t know anything about that launcher sorry

thank you so much i did it! but where do i download the filters from? thanks

You don’t, the filters are the .filt files that were copied in this line:

cp *.filt *.so ~/.config/retroarch/filters/video

Make sure you do this

Now edit your config and change the video_filter_dir too
video_filter_dir = “~/.config/retroarch/filters/video/”

Then under video settings go to video filters and pick one


#174

thanks i found the filters and wow the difference is amazing! but do i have to pick the filter every time or just once?


#175

They are persistant across the cores and reboots is my experience ! Happy you got it working !!!


#176

thank you wizz! :smile:


#177

I do these steps exactly as above, starting in retroarch, and I get: cp: target ‘/home/cpi/.config/retroarch/filters/video’ is not a directory

what am I doing wrong?


#178

from retroarch.

cd gfx/video_filters


#179

yep, did that in retroarch. What I did was find my way to the directory, and made the required directory there. then re tried the cp command and it worked that time.


#180

change this

mkdir -p ~/.config/retroarch/filters/

to

mkdir -p ~/.config/retroarch/filters/video

#181

That’s great, thanks so much!


#182

Is there anyone experiencing issues getting 32x to load? I have added the picodrive and the proper script, but when i attempt to run it, it returns to the Shell

  • I have also added the BIOS file for SegaCD, just in case, but to no avail.
  • I tried loading the picodrive Core manually from RetroArch, and load the content, but it leads to the same restart.

#183

Hey man how do I turn the filter off? It’s screwing with my PCSX hard


#184

Go back to the video filter option, but this time press start. It’ll restore it to default.


#185

I got round to doing this yesterday. All installed fine now, thanks.

Trouble is, I get horrendous slow-down on just about every core with filters applied…

As a aside, is there an optimal setting to get genesis plus gx to run without stuttering?


#186

I just realized that all the save files on my RetroPie can be transferred and played on my GS.

Not sure how many people know this, but it’s totally do-able, and I think that’s pretty freakin’ neato.
