Re: Is the power supply i bought causing all my problems?

I can't access the PSU manual at the moment, but you should read the manual/specification sheet if you can. By the sounds of it, if you have a rainbow coloured square overlaying on your monitor you are not meeting the power needs of the Pi. USB 1.1/2.0 cables have 4 pin connectors (USB 3.0 has 9 pin...

Re: Moonlight Embedded

Hi all, haven't tried this out yet but may do in the near future. I was wondering if it is at all possible to be able to use the PC as normal use (say user 1) while the pair PI and PC operates a separate window/terminal/login (say user 2) at the same time? Reason being is it would be nice to fork ou...

Re: breif hesitations lasting <1-15 secomds

My first thought would be whether this is a power issue. Does the display overlay a small rainbow coloured box in the top right hand corner? This is forced overlay from the Raspberry Pi telling you it is (being) underpowered. Underpowering will causes freezes and can lead to memory errors/storage co...

Re: ZDoom - Poor Performance (Pi 2)

http://zdoom.org/wiki/Compile_ZDoom_on_Raspberry_Pi Interesting about there being memory issues when compiling in turbo. I may have to look at ramping down to high for compiling in future! If this is indeed confirmed I can imagine a few documents need to add this to the overclocking disclaimer! :O

Re: ZDoom - Poor Performance (Pi 2)

Yes perhaps I was too hasty in using the term 'perfect', what I really meant was that it seemed perfectly compatible. Yep can confirm, it is perfectly compatible ^^ I will say though I think it runs quite well and perfectly playable. I do get a small amount of slowdown when there is a lot on screen...

Re: ZDoom - Poor Performance (Pi 2)

Smithers: When you mean runs perfect, do you not get FPS drops in Brutal Doom? Even just a few monsters and things going down (like rockets or a lot of gibs) it drops considerably. It is playable, but not enjoyable. I've built ZDOOM with SDL2 and it works nearly perfect, however has some slow downs ...

Re: ZDoom - Poor Performance (Pi 2)

I've been running "PRBOOM" from the Raspbian repositry to play iwads and a few custom wads. I've only ran into a few issues with custom wads (mainly Valiant Megawad). I used this library supplied over here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=99822 to get the audio working. I mig...

Re: NEW: Darkplaces Quake engine up and running on Raspberry

Just wondering why the choice to force the resolution based on the boot config? Am I missing something?

Makes it a pain to have to change resolution that way.

Re: Quake 1 Port, Optimization Questions

Hello all. Hello Welford. =) I just gave this build a go on the Raspberry Pi 2 and it really shows some potential. I only played e1m1 but: In 640x480 and 1920x1080 the performance is pretty good (all things considered). Some major fps drops around particles/sprites/skyboxes, but in areas where it is...
