  1. I'd honestly suggest going with Retroarch's Flycast core, Demul hasn't been updated in years, and the Flycast core seems to be semi-actively developed and way more easy to use
  2. Compatibility really is the only reason to keep them, but most cores a few megs, a couple can be a bit larger around maybe 200 megs, but if you are running out of space, deleting a few cores is the least of your worries. I personally just have all the cores downloaded and update them periodically. If one gets depreciated or something along the lines of that, I just move it into an Archived folder. I'd rather have a backup for whatever unseen circumstance, than have to go searching around for something when I didn't need to. Again, if you are running low on space, you need to invest in a bigger or secondary drive STAT. A 4 TB hard drive is pretty much chump change at this point.
  3. I'm excited to see how this version improves, but the main thing that I hope gets added more than anything else right now is a dark mode. Even a grey mode... anything other than blinding white really.
  4. Just bought it on my Shield and so far everything seems to be running extremely well. Thanks Jason for all your incredible work! I'll always mainly use the Windows version, but having Launchbox on my shield for when I travel for work will make hotel rooms just that much nicer.
  5. Honestly it sounds either like a software corruption issue or Hardware issue. Have you tried basic troubleshooting, like redownloading the emulator directly from the source? What Romset are you using? Have you tried using another emulator? Some more info would allow people to help you more.
  6. Mame is super simple on RetroArch, here is a quick rundown/setup instructions. 1. Make sure both the normal MAME roms and the CHDs are the same version (Honestly the CHDs being .199 shouldn't be a problem, but MAME is always super picky about that crap, just update them). Then make sure they are the same version as the core (.205 is the newest one and it looks like you are already using the .205 romset, just use the normal MAME core, don't mess around with the older MAME cores that have years next to them) 2. the CHD folders need to be in the same folder as the normal MAME roms, for those CHD games to work. 3. Load up a couple games you know should work, like Donkey Kong or Dig Dug or Street Fighter 2. Everything should work fine. If not, I remember a while ago, that you needed to have a Mame folder in the System directory (where you put all the Bioses). Not sure if that is the case now or not, but you might want to try , I know highscore and cheats won't work unless the highscore and cheat files are in the folder in the system directory.
  7. The Reicast core in RetroArch also plays Atomiswave and Naomi games extremely well too. I prefer to use RetroArch over all other emulators for ease of use and complete customization. Plus Demul as far as I know hasn't been updated in years and Reicast has been updated pretty regular as of late. But again, whatever you want is fine.
  8. Sadly, no, I gave up on it months ago, RetroArch has more important things to do than fix something that should be a no brainer, like backporting the emulator to Windows 3.1 and PS2 instead.... I kid...kinda... But yeah, I think the only way to really get those games to work is basically just use another emulator. It sucks, but I don't see the RetroArch team ever going back and fixing it, and I'm not going to hold my breath.
  9. Teknoparrot does work, the biggest issue is getting the file to download since Chrome & Defender both registers it as malware and its a pain. Once you whitelist it, and set it up (their emulator configuration is weird and un-intuitive) it works pretty well.
  10. Just open file explorer, go the your emulator folder and create two new folders, name one PCSX2 (USA), and one PCSX2 (Japan)...(Or whatever you want to name them, NTSC or whatever makes sense to you, but if you are doing them for different regions, just make it easy on yourself) Then copy over the emulator to both of the folders, then in Launchbox, go to the Manage Emulators option, add, then just add the first one for normal use, set that up,and make sure you name it something easy to differentiate (again, USA/Japan, try to keep a uniform naming convention so you don't get confused) then do the same thing with the Japan one. Then Import your ROMs and name the System the same that you did for the emulators. And you are good to go. Obviously you'll probably have to go into the emulators and do some additional setup, but that is what the PCSX2 config plugin is for.
  11. Yeah, you absolutely can do this, I've done it for Dolphin for the base version, and the VR version. It's super easy to setup.
  12. Excellent, that's all I needed to know. I'll stick with my bin+cue files then.
  13. So it looks like there are a ton of different file formats being used now, and I'm honestly confused as why. If someone could just answer a few questions, I'd think that would help out everyone here. I'm going through and wanting to make my set complete and want to never touch it again after this last round of updating, so having the best files would be nice, running on a top end PC, so space and hardware isn't an issue. Using Retroarch for primarily everything unless it doesn't have a core, then I'll use the most popular/best choice. 1. For PSX what is the best file format now? CHD? PBP? SBI? Bin&Cue? 2. For Dreamcast, is .gdi the best or are there CHDs now or something else everyone is using?
  14. Has anyone figured out how to setup Retroarch's Daphne core? I want to use it, but I have no clue on how to set it up, compared to the normal Daphne emulator. Anyone have any guides or can offer a bit of basic setup help?
  15. Since last weeks tutorial is already obsolete, is there any possibility of getting an updated one for getting these games working with Riecast using the mame romset? I really think the most valuable information would be a list of just what games are for the Naomi and Atomiswave.
