Severe Input Lag w/ Retropie Mame2003

Recommended Posts

I am prepping my Raspberry Pi 4 for installation into an arcade cabinet and Retropie is installing fine, games added, MAME 0.78 romset, etc. Only problem is there is so much lag I can't play anything. Really simple games like Donkey Kong. This is the first time I've gone outside of my beastly desktops so I am not sure what the best place to start is. Anybody Raspberry gurus? I want everything working properly before I start taking arcade cabinets apart.

Might be slow getting an answer since this is a Launchbox forum. You would probably get a faster answer posting in the actual Rpi forum.

The solution is the Pi was too underpowered for my tastes and the decades old versions of MAME didn't help. I put a PC in my cabinet and the games run like greased lightning. Killer Instinct included ;)
