Last time I tried vertical screen on a raspberry pie, the performance sucked.  Has this been taken care of yet?

I have a cocktail table I would love to throw retropie in (it had an old computer in it that died and I haven't got around to buying something new for it).

Thanks

Yeah kinda. Nearly not really.  Almost.

The only noticed slow downs was NEo GEo horizontal games like Baseball Stars 2.  It was irritating to watch.

Better to get a PC than a Pi.  Even the Tinker has problems with vertical displaying horizontal games.  I would think the video driver is not there yet.  You could try giving more memory to the GPU, but I doubt it.

Check newegg as I got a refurbished SFF i3 entry spec for $50 with windows 10 home.  The Raspberry Pi is a developer board, better suited to 16bit home console games.  Flamers welcome to comment.
If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.

What I heard  the problem was that the video drivers were emulating a horizontal scan pattern.  For vertical screen, it scans each horizontal line, to draw a single pixel, then moves to the enxt... instead of drawing the whole line at once.  I didn't get if it was a retropie issue / lib problem, or unix driver problem...
