Raspberry Pi 3 boot + RetroPie 3.6 + Reicast/Dreamcast emulation



Got my Raspberry Pi 3 in today and decided to show off the much improved Dreamcast Emulation. There’s still some skippy sound, some graphical errors but it is significantly more playable on a Pi 3 than the 2. I Demo Crazy Taxi, Sonic Adventure 2 and Soul Calibur in the video

Pardon the lighting my basement is dark but the point gets across regardless

-Raspberry Pi 3 default, no overclock
-RetroPie 3.6
-Reicast Emulator

Raspberry Pi 3 Dreamcast Emulation – 12 Dreamcast Games Tested with RetroPie 3.6 (Reicast)



Raspberry Pi 3 Dreamcast Emulation – 12 Dreamcast Games Tested with RetroPie 3.6 on the Reicast Emulator.

Hey Guys, Raspberry Pi 3 is here with a faster 64bit processor running at 1.2GHz. I have overclocked mine to 1.35GHz to test out if it has the power to run Dreamcast games at a playable level. It is worth pointing out that this little guy does get hot compared to the Pi 2, so it is definitely worth investing in a heatsink if you decide to pick one up.. maybe you could overclock higher!

To overclock the Pi3 you need to do the following:

Manually edit the /boot/config.txt file and edit the following line:
arm_freq=1350
Also add these two:
over_voltage=6
sdram_freq=500
Careful though as the Pi3 gets hot!

Below is a list of the games I tested and timestamps to where the
emulaton begins. Hope you enjoy the vid!

(Whoops, there was 12 games but Street Fighter 3 Third Strike seems to have been cut out of the vid! Only 11 for now)
