My specs are down below.
I recently received my PCB device. Its a beautiful little rig. My only problem now is, that when I am running GBA games, some of them lagg at certain points in the game. I am using 8GB SD Card. My goal is to play GB / GBC / GBA and some NES / SNES games. It seems to be that when dialect pops up in a game there is severe lagg to sound / picture. Then once the person pops down after speaking in the game, it runs ok.
Has anybody had an issue with sound / game lagg using a Raspberry Pi Zero W? In particular GBA Roms? I remember setting this up on my Pi 3 in anticipation of the 8bcraft device coming, where there was no problem. Is the Pi Zero W just not powerful enough? Could my card be corrupt? Is sound a known problem on GBA Roms on Pi Zero W? Maybe I need to free up some space? Although it's only 200-300 Gameboy/GBC/GBA Roms, which is not a lot of space on an 8GB SD Card.
The things I haven't tried:
- - A different SD Card
- Start Fresh on current card
Pi Model or other hardware: Raspberry Pi Zero w on 8bcraft device
Power Supply used: Battery from 8bcraft project. But have tried whilst plugged in also using official RP3 Charger
RetroPie is v4.3
Built From: SD Image on RetroPie website
USB Devices connected: SNES Controller as part of the 8bcraft device
Emulator: Mainly GBA. GB & GBC are running OK mostly.
How to replicate the problem: Switch on device. Start up GBA ROM. Warioland, Krazy Racers, Zelda..etc. Note sound is lagging / gameplay lags at some points when music is playing / dialog is playing.
Other things to note: I have about 200 ROMS mixed between GB / GBC / GBA on it at the moment.
