Based on Retropie v4.8 for Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W with the following changes:

LCD/Speaker/Controls support.

Better Safe Shutdown.

Mono sound mixing for LCD mode/onboard speaker, stereo for HDMI.

HDMI Out option in EmulationStation (For those who have cut a hole in their GPi cartridge to expose the HDMI port…)

Modified to automatically switch between mono and stereo mixing depending on the mode the GPi Case is running in.

128MB / 384MB VRAM/RAM split.

Custom scripts available in EmulationStation to control CPU cores, CPU clock speed, system services, WiFi/Bluetooth, HDMI out, SD controller speed, save data backup/restore and a simple system monitor

Avahi/Samba/SSH/rsyslog/Bluetooth/IPV6 disabled by default (Scripts available in EmulationStation Settings menu to toggle them).

Systemd logs stored in memory and capped at 8MB.

Optimized Retroarch/Emulator setup.

128MB ZRAM swap. Faster, reduces SD card wear. 64MB total use when full due to compression.

initrd splash screen support.

Custom themes “Eridu”, “Ur”, “Lagash” and “Girsu” designed for the low resolution LCD.

Dual configurations for Retroarch and EmulationStation for LCD and HDMI modes: Allows independent settings for both in each display mode.

What’s going on with this?  It’s not in the RPI images section and the link points to google maps.

it’s the last link listed on the list.

I dont have a GPI………So I assume that’s why I’m not having any lick on my Zero 2 via HDMI?

…..Oh….Flashback. Could it be to do with changing the .ini? Haven’t done that since pi2 days. Help plz?

I have a self-made problem with doom (lzdoom)
I wanted to set the option to run in doom and after a few failed attempts I simply executed the standard key assignment.
Now almost nothing works and I can no longer go to the options menu because the control pad no longer goes up and down.
Uninstalled lzdoom and reinstalled it didn't work. he then still has the same settings.
There is the cfg for lzdoom separately. so that I can save them in the .config directory.
Or is the whole v1.5 gone now and I have to start all over again?


PS: my english is bad so i used google
