Limitations Of the Raspberry Pi 3 systems

The Raspberry Pi 3 is a small but powerful linux based computer that is at the heart of all our products. We do a lot of customisation and optimisation to the systems so that the end user has the best experience. Below is a list that we update regularly with limitations that customers find with the system, most of the issues and limitations we are able to fix however if we cannot we add them to the list. As part of our customer service ethos we aim to be as open and honest with our customers as possible.

List of known Limitations of the Pi systems

N64 Performance

The N64 is a console well known within the online community for being a hard console to emulate. Unfortunately the N64 cannot be emulated by the Pi system at full speed on ALL games. A lot of games will work well however some games will have lower than average FFS and sound issues. Below is a list created by the community to outline games that work fine and those that have issues.

*We currently only add dreamcast games on request*   

Dreamcast is very similar to the N64, it is a console well known within the online community for being a hard console to emulate. Unfortunately the Dreamcast system cannot be emulated by the Pi system at full speed on ALL games. A lot of games will work well however some games will have lower than average FFS and sound issues. Below is a list created by the community to outline games that work fine and those that have issues.
