While some users are happily playing their favorite retro games, using RetroPlayer on CoreELEC.
Others are unfortunately still having issues getting RetroPlayer working on their devices.
This is sadly to be expected since, CoreELEC, Kodi and all it’s new features such as RetroPlayer are still in development. Bugs and unfinished features are expected in software that is still in development.
Since none of the developers have all of the supported devices and all the possible TVs and other accessories to go with them, let alone the time to test every feature with every combination (The developers are volunteers, working in their spare time after all).
So I would like to ask for the communities help in narrowing down exactly which devices exhibit these issues.
Starting with the black screen issue that some users have been reporting.
All that is required to help is that you install the VRAM test from the games addons / standalone games section of the CoreELEC addon repository, run it and post your results here. There is no roms, controllers, or anything special required to be able to, just a couple minutes of your time.
To make results easier to read if you could use the following template when reporting your results it would be appreciated.
Device Tested: <device> Image Used: <image> DTB File Used: <dtb_file> * Test Pattern Visible: <yes,no,other> Display Used: <TV,Monitor> * Screen Resolution: <720p,1080p,2160p,etc..> Does your Display Support: HDR or 10bit colour: <yes,no>
*(Some images don’t require a dtb file so leave blank in that case.)
*(Feel free to list an exact model if you want, but that’s not required)
