    Fall 2018 Classic League Start

    I am sure the Commish will weigh in, but I think it is a minority that flat out won't use Retroarch. (And for them, they are probably having a tech problem with RA, just like you are for GENs, so it is not like they are just being grumpy.) I think > 80% of people can use either (but that is just a guess), which includes myself.

    RetroArch Tips and Troubleshooting

    Ok. I will point this out to Buc. Once he sees it I will delete this erroneous tip. (Since we only want real hints here, not red herrings. Unless of course he tries other stuff and says this is what works for him, still.)

    RetroArch Issue: Fast Desync

    I did just host MikeG, and had a great connection. (My best ever with RA.) So I think Atomic has something screwy happening. We will keep looking into it.

    RetroArch Tips and Troubleshooting

    Issue 5: Slo-Mo Video (from Buc on Discord) MAIN MENU > SETTINGS > DRIVER and turn on "Threaded Video". With Threaded Video set to Off, Buc said "it looked like it was going into slow motion half the game even when I was just playing the computer." Buc uses Win10.
  6. Atomic and I experience quick Desyncs when we try to play together. Either from start of game, or near start (within seconds). Both run Windows. Both have Port Forwarding (so Relay Off). Not sure how to troubleshoot it? (I will google, but thought someone might have insight?) Played GENs without issue after.

    RetroArch Tips and Troubleshooting

    Issue 4: On Mac in Fullscreen Mode, Hot Keys Not Responsive On Windows, you can use the "F" hotkey to toggle in and out of fullscreen. Does not appear to work for everyone on a Mac. However, to scale your window you can use: MAIN MENU > SETTINGS > VIDEO and use the "Windowed Scale" settings to change the size of the screen.

    RetroArch Tips and Troubleshooting

    Issue 3: SNES "Multitap" Message During Netplay In Netplay, after connecting, you get an in-game screen message "Multitap 5 needs to be connected to Player # 2" - For some reason, RetroArch thinks there's a multi-tap connected to Player 1. To fix go to: QUICK MENU > CONTROLS and change the Player 1 to "SNES Joypad". One or both players may need to do this. Return to the game and it should work fine.

    RetroArch Tips and Troubleshooting

    Issue 2: Jumpy Video in Win10 (from Chaos and Viz on Discord) MAIN MENU > SETTINGS > DRIVER Change the "Video Driver" from "gl" to "d3d11". Also go to: MAIN MENU > SETTINGS > VIDEO and turn on "Hard GPU Sync". This should get rid of the choppiness. Windows 10 screwed up their GL video driver with a recent update Most noticable thing is when you go into MAIN MENU > SETTINGS > VIDEO, look at your "Estimated Screen Framerate". It should closely match the refresh rate of your monitor (most likely ~60Hz, unless you have a fancy monitor). To check your monitor refresh rate (don't change it) -

    RetroArch Tips and Troubleshooting

    Issue 1: No Audio while ROM is playing If you are playing a ROM and can't hear anything, try this: MAIN MENU > SETTINGS > DRIVER Change the "Audio Driver" to "dsound", restart RetroArch, and try it again. This fixes the issue for most.

    This is not going to be helpful at all, but I couldn't help but think of quantum theory and parallel universes... could it be that somehow different realities were overlapping and interfering with one another? Like, maybe RA conjures up some sort of intersecting wormholes? (It is beta, after all.) (Sorry, please disregard this message. Couldn't help myself.)

    jackandjose - GENS Name, age, occupation, location Judd, 47, small business owner(lawn and landscape), Fort Collins, Colorado What hobbies or other interests do you have? Climbing the mountains of Colorado is my passion. I also play hockey(ice and inline), table tennis and racquetball. When did you get introduced to the game NHL'94? How did it happen? Started playing 93 in college and then of course 94. I don't remember how I was introduced, but I played hockey and owned a Sega so I think it was inevitable. Never really played that much though. Loved it, but just didn't have the time in college. When did you get introduced to and the online community? Were you playing between these two dates? (That is, between first becoming aware of game, and first becoming aware of I joined the community in January 2013. My job gives me a 4 month winter vacation, and that winter I got heavily involved in online RBI leagues. While playing someone in RBI I learned about the 94 site and joined almost immediately. I had not played 94 since 95 came out. I switched each year to the new updated game through 98, and stopped playing entirely around 2000 when I got married. What are a couple things that you love about the game? I love everything about the game. It's so simple, yet so complex and is easily the most complete game ever made. I can't stand playing any new hockey games. Are you a gamer in general? What other games do you play? I am not a gamer in general and mostly only play 94 and RBI. Occasionally I'll play other classic NES games too. Do you follow hockey in real life? Any other sports? I only follow hockey casually and when I do it's only the Avalanche. MacKinnon is probably the only player I know for the Avs. When they first came to Colorado I bought season tickets and followed them religiously for 10 years or so. That was an exciting time with so many great playoff runs and legends like Sakic, Forsberg, Roy and Bourque. I just don't have the time anymore to follow. In high school and college I was a huge capitals fan so was very excited to see them win the cup this year after so many years of frustration. If you have been to a live tourney, what was it like meeting the real people behind the screen names? Any big surprises? I went to the Vegas tournament and had a good time. It was cool to meet everyone and put faces with screen names. I was with my wife so missed out on some of the experience I think. What is behind your screen name? (Origin story, if there is one.) The name jackandjose was taken from a song by my favorite band(Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, formerly The Refreshments). The song is actually called Jack vs Jose. My wife and I have seen them about 175 times. Favorite NHL94 player in game (and why)? Peter Bondra because he was my favorite player as a kid and I love his speed.

    On my setup it is a toggle: "F" goes fullscreen, "F" exits fullscreen.
