ProjectTalk:-Libretro Docs Update

I was checking out discord the other day and I believe it was @lordmonkus that linked to a git repo of images previewing the majority of default retroarch shader effects..... Que a week of Atom text editting and GitHub learning!! I added all the availiable images to the Libretro Documentation website found here https://buildbot.libretro.com/docs/ Under Shader Previews I thought the info needed a more visible loacation. Give your thaks to HunterK of Libretro forums for th

ProjectTalk:- Bezels Bezels Bezels

Like many people here I am a RetroArch whore That means I use Overlays to add borders to some things...To fair I dont actually use many overlays but then again my setup has never been polished and tends to be a testing ground more than an actual game machine. Cant help but tinker....   Anyway I totally love bezel artwork and enjoy collecting bezels for all systems (not so much Arcade)   I would love to put a big global pack together in Metalzoic's Mega Bezel Pack style (

DailyTalk:-Locked out NOW

Well as I write this I'm currently locked out of the house 😢 The damn wind caught door, which swiftly slammed behind me when popping to my van.... best bit is the household is asleep   now do I throw stones at window to wake the Wife up or try and get in a window and risk making enough noise for her to think an earthquake struck....   Rock and a hard place spring to mind

ProjectTalk:- Amiga & PS1

I have had 2 big projects for my own setup going on for months and had a great week for those Finally had the time to get a big chunck of PS1 bin/cue games renamed to a solid curated database og 1807 games. Some 823 done and about 70 more to collect and convert....Final push wont be so bad before getting to test some and add in that set config files made by someone here (@criticalcid iirc-little search needed) Bigger than that a dude (BippyM) popped up with the connections and knowledg

Don't Buy from ebuy2016.com SCAM

While I wait on hold to my bank..... I feel stupid for not doing my usual reasearch before buying a product online. The above site is a scam as far as im concerned. 2Tb external drive payed for and no confirmation email and no drive and no response from the site.  AVOID bad purchases and do your checks befor buying....which is hard because out of 4 purchases last week with 2 being from legit UK sites all three have caused problems. Wrong item delivered for one and the other h

DroidTalk:- Anyone got an Nvidia Shield TV??

Evening all, If anyone has a Shield Tv I would love to hear about your setup choice and general experiences. I love it... Anyway there is the posibility that RetroArch will be getting multiple mice support soon, hopefully it makes its way to Android. https://www.bountysource.com/issues/43321776-multiple-mice-support Duel light guns baby, I'm working on my Commodore Amiga setup which is a crazy task. 2000+ WHDLoad packs converted to hdf (not by me, well maybe 100 by

DailyTalk:- Tangry (new word?)

Today was almost a peak day So i hope you have heard the phrase "hangry" for hunger shouting and those grumbles we make when somethings not going right.

DailyTalk:- Go to work for a break!!

Whata busy day.... This blog is so much better than facebook.....knowbody knows me and knowone i know in real life sees this....I can speak freely as myself. Thank you Jason for having blogs on your forum...   Anyway Revival post done, I wanted to see if a daily or near daily entry could keep me a bit more sain. Writing a diary seems pointless and i just mentioned FB urrgh, its full of crap.   Today has been a long day full of hard work......Hardwork is good for my menta

My Blog Revamp

My Blog revival,   Background:- I found the blog section one day and thought this is cool, I like writing. (just come off the back of writing down all I knew about emulation, Shield TV and RetroArch) But I was busy learning emulators and finding games to play so didnt have time or want to write my thoughts in blog format. Anyway I have been unhappy in general life for a fair while.....plodding along collecting my romsets, working on my setup till early hours and learnin

DailyTalk:- Hyper is over...

Well my weekend Hyper finally subsided after the wife told me to sit down and stop talking and getting dropped in it at work. 2hr job turns into 10hrs nice. To be fair hypers are fun but tiring. Anyway decided to be less self promoting and removed my logo from here. Its going to be more random now, i should probably get a diary but whats the point in reading stuff, i thought today, tomorrow. Off to dig some flower beds at a ridiculous  8pm...i just want to beat my paperboy score

Realtalk:- 1st Entry

Hi all, Wanted to let off some steam so this is an insight to my personal life. As this is a blog and all that. Where to start  My recent flurry of Emu Media (not sure if this is clased as Social Media) I'm coming off a few weeks of a mood low and had a great home life weekend with my wife and daughter. THE SUN WAS OUT, got some gardening done and building work on my house is moving forward after months of hassle & hidden cost. So am loving life again. This has been

EmuTalk:-Threats have been carried OUT :)

Not those kind of threats silly. (Android promo-I set up a little Discord channel for Android, Nvidia Shield TV and Hyperspin users. If you want to join that PM me) EXCUSE MY SPELLING ITS LATE HERE I have been threatening to buy a subscription for far to long.....I was feeling a little flush so pulled the trigger. I felt guilty watching so many Launchbox YouTube videos and enjoying what this place has to offer. Thanks to @Jason Carr for LB/BB, the dev live streams and news update

DroidTalk:- Launchbox mentioned Android!!!!!!

Well I was watching the latest news and android got a mention which peaked my interest. As a Nvidia Shield TV user it would be amazing see an Android power of LaunchBox. Maybe one day 😄 I setup GameCube recently and I have tested some games with great results it's impressive what the Shield TV combined with Dolphin can get you.  I also updated my Shield firmware last night and it's brought some great additions that hampered the emulation user experience BUT I have not tested

DailyTalk:- Stuck in traffic

I have a love hate relationship with traffic. Today I like the traffic because it gives me time to do a little blog post! So Sunday I had no idea that's not ready to share just yet but I have been working on it and hope it will be a handy thing for the WHOLE newbie emulation community.  I dropped in here to add a Blog entry on Monday and found the entry from @Temp. You will never know how much that entry resonated with me and my family and I thank you for sharing. I thought I would giv

Hello

So I was having a little browse around the community while killing time at work.   This community seems very positive and young. Much like I am in the emulation scene.   i could only see Jason's blog so not sure if there are more (browsing on my phone as usual) but anyway thought I would keep him company in
