I decided to get a new memory card for my pi 3 b and give that retropie thing a try. Chucked a few super famicom games at it and it appears to rnu like a very slow piece of dog shit.

Wondering if I'm missing something.

It runs at full speed on mine. Did you get a slow card?

Dont think so. (and would rather hope everything was in memory by that point anyway.)

It's intermittent but predictable.

Hmmm... You're using a proper charger?

Then I dunno. I've never used a Famicom rom, personally (no Japanese) so there *might* be an issue with frame rates... I'm totally guessing now.

You probably are just missing something - what rom's are they - stuff that uses FX chips can be a bit more hit and miss than basic / standard ROMS
