I was not able to get fbcp loaded on startup by adding "/home/pi/rbi-fbcp/build/fbcp &". It seems that rc.local would simply omit to launch fbcp, any lines before and after the launch command would execute well... I guess it is something related to login. 

I finally got it running by launching fbcp from "/usr/bin/emulationstation". I don't know i this is the right way to do it but seems to work for me.

Very cool and awesome project.
For booting line (Step 6), I had to put the lines into .bashrc, because otherwise it did not work.

But I have an issue, where my FPS is low, the screen loads after every 3 seconds or so. How could that be fixed that it would be smooth?

Maybe try to change the speed parameter. 48000000 is for 48 Mhz, perhaps your screen can’t handle it. Try a lower value (32 Mhz or 16).

You can upload a video of how to do?

It would be very interesting,

I added a line to path where I build rpi-fbcp at the end of /etc/rc.local.

(step 5) I was able to build the rpi-fbcp. But how do I set it to launch at boot?

You’ll need to add a line to /etc/rc.local file : sudo nano /etc/rc.local
Then, go at the end of file (but before the exit 0) and add a line where to find fbcp :
/home/pi/rbi-fbcp/build/fbcp &
