Anybody running CoolCV on a PI ZeroW? I am running it but I seem to have the 'sound stuttering'/slow down issues mentioned earlier. I have updated the Pi setup script and updated the binary as suggested on the RetroPie forums but no changes to the issues.  I am just wondering if the PiZero just cant handle CoolCv, although it does handle a lot of other systems quite well. RetroPie version is the latest.

I heard the PI 1 does not handle CoolCV. Is the Zero similar in performance to the PI 1? If so, you may want to use AdamEM or AdvMESS.

It's been a while since I've had my PI1 out so I dont recall if I had Coleco running on it via CoolCV.  As I tend to run only older systems (<=SNES), the PiZeroW seems to handle most everything decently. Perhaps I'll try AdvMess as I am using that for Bally Astrocade (and will try Fairchild when I get the chance.)

I am currently running and playing games on CoolCV using a Raspberry Pi version 1

 

The only thing I don't know how to do is how to set multiple controller keys to exit or save.  For instance pressing START and SELECT to save.  I can only map one key to do a function, not map two keys to be pressed simultaneously to preform a function.

In RetroPie

 

Can I save more than one game in /var/tmp

 

For example if I'm playing ZAXXON and press F1 it will save the game.

But then when I go play another different game, say TARZAN, and then press F1 to save TARZAN, then the save will over-write my ZAXXON save.

 

I have only one save slot.

Can I do anything about that??

I found an answer on another site, to the question I asked above, so I'll just share the answer here: NO, you can't save more than one slot.

 

From what someone else told me on reddit

"It's not a libretro (RetroArch) emulator so it doesn't support multiple save files. It's really only saving a temporary "restore point" as such."

How about writing a shell script that will save the save game as the name of the game? When the script starts, it would rename the save state as the default name.
