Hi! there, My original screen of RetroStone2 is broken, And I got a 3.5 inch screen from another product, I put it on RS2, the screen is lighted successfully, but the picture is upside down. I can't rotate the screen physically for the interface orientation.

Is there a way to rotate the Screen, such as, modify some parameters of the operating system? please take a look at the  Attachment, thanks very much!

this should rotate 90º, so tweak parameters to your needs (180º)

Code:
sudo nano /boot/armbianEnv.txt

add fbcon=rotate:1 to the end of the extraargs line


Code:
nano /opt/retropie/supplementary/emulationstation/emulationstation.sh

add --screenrotate 1 --screensize 720 1280 to the end of the "$esdir/emulationstation" "$@" line (change resolution to match your own)


Code:
nano /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

on line video_rotation, change value to "3"



Hi,alexkidd, thanks for the quick answer,  if I want rotate 180, what value should I set these parameters exactly?

I set these parameters to 2, the picture rotate 180 in Armbian, Emulationstation and games. Great!

but the retroArch menu is still upside down,  any suggestions?
hmm, maybe use the rotation option from Video settings, not sure if its any different from changing retroarch.cfg
