About Me

  1. I'm a big RetroArch user and a big N64 fan. I've been disappointed at the lack of compatibility for the Mupen64Plus core compared to other cores in RetroArch. Everywhere I've looked online points to GlupeN64 being the best core with the highest compatibility for the time being until ParaLLEL or Cen64 picks up steam. The problem is I can't figure out how to activate GlupeN64 as a core in RetroArch. I have the latest 1.4.1 edition of RetroArch, but GlupeN64 isn't listed as a core there. Does anyone know how to activate this core?
  2. figured out how to copy the post I'm going to post this answer in a few different areas on the forum. I have been trying to figure out how to launch retroarch mame for the systems that don't have a stand alone core. I have finally found a mostly elegant solution 1) Add a New Emulator - I have named mine RetroArch MAME console cores Add your retroarch.exe Make sure to check "Don't use quotes..." 2) Tab over to the Associated Platforms Here's the magic sauce example 1 "neocdz -cdrm \"%romfile%\"" example 2 "a5200 -rp \"F:\Roms\Atari 5200\" -cart \"%romfile
  3. Hello All, I’m having strange sound issue that seems to only be happening to the following Atari cores: 2600 (Stella), 800XL (Atari800), and 7800 (Pro System). I have been scouring multiple forums for weeks without any useful info, and have tried any and all RA settings regarding sound and video sync without any favorable results. Below are a few details regarding the issue: If I have Retroarch notifications turned on at game launch (eg) core re-map, controller info etc., I can see that the sound on some of the games will only start after the notifications being displayed
  4. These Arcade Bezels were made by me and tested on Windows 10 with MameUI and Retroarch running at 1920x1080. They are constantly tweaked and updated. I also take request.

  5. These custom console themed overlays were edited and assembled by me to play your retro console games with a unique nostalgic bezel on Retroarch. Please enjoy and have fun. Please give me credit and the others involved if you use it on your Youtube channel. Thanks. Most of the original artwork came from ReignStumble. Credit is given to RetroKenesis for the bezel frames. You can download all my console themed overlays here - http://bit.ly/2nbRtPs Here's a Tutorial on how to add them to Retroarch.
  6. Hello all, I'm having some issues with sound distortion and what I would assume is game slowdown. The custom BannerBox theme and Retroarch cores, appears to be the culprit. The platform that has the most apparent negative affects, is Atari 5200, while using the Atari800 core with Retroarch, in Bigbox (BannerBox Theme) I'm using game list, not wheel, and no background video. When launching the same 5200 games directly through Retroarch alone, they run perfectly fine, and when using the same Atari800 core through Retroarch in Launchbox, they also play perfectly fine... That said
  7. Hello, looking for advice or a tutorial on trying to set up multiple players on keyboard on retroarch. This is mainly for a 4 player arcade stick that is keyboard base. Would like to set up naomi and atomis wave games for 4 players and for coin insertions. Mainly for fighters and games like power stone. Thanks.
  8. Not sure where i post this... Can I make one game in 1 platform run a different retroArch core IN launchbox? I have my saturn platform but some games need the yabasanshiro libreto instead of the beetle all the others use. I think if i had a command line paremeter i could place that in EDIT GAME / LAUNCHING - use costom command line paremter ? (might be wrong). I do have the choice to select either core on launch, as ive set them both up but I cant have 2 defaults and i cant see a setting to default for an individual game :? when I select the game it goes to the default and
  9. It's been a while since I have gone looking for roms, and have still my old collection, however I'm looking to expand it again. The problem is, I'm having trouble findings roms with the .lst file in them. Is there a program that I use? or is it a specific rom that I would have to look for. I'm not asking for links, but the roms I find usually have various files, and a bin. No lst. Thanks.
  10. Can anyone point me in the direction to find a Gameboy Color and Game Boy Advance handheld console shader for Retro Arch that does not also change the game graphics to mimic the original look of the games on those devices? I want to keep the image of the handheld device but not have any tweaked effects for the game graphics. All the shaders I can find on RetroArch change the graphics to mimic the original look of the devices. Don't get me wrong. It's pretty sweet, but not what I'm looking for with my setup. I tried to see if I could tweak the shader to remove the game graphic effects but I can
  11. 2 problems 1 question question 1) are all neo geo roms in the full mame sets? Problem 1)Mame I cannot find a stock filter / slider crt scan line effect which isnt way too dark. The exact look I want is found when you use retroarch neogeo. Problem 2)NEO GEO Some of my neo geo roms don't work with retroarch / fbalpha2012neogeo libretro and some dont have art work. I need to seperate my neo geo from mame. Goal I want all my mame to look like the retroarch neogeo scanlines which is basically a nice bright colourful crt which to me look
  12. Hi Guys I´ve been going throught a crazy spot, first my LB and BB was just fine 1 or 2 months ago,but since the last update every time i run a game in LB or BB the screen of loading appears and later it only shows me the main screen of the emulator, the game are not running, it happens with MAME, retroarch and pcsx2, but with rpcs3, cemu, dolphin or PPSSPP everything is just fine. I tried run the game only with the emulator an everything is ok, only when i launched with BB or LB i have this issue. I tried changing rom paths, erase and add every single one emulator, re installing them, eve

    I love the designs by ÁlvaroMG but his DS design layout didn't work out for me. So I recreated it in a way to use the hybrid/top 2:1 ratio. I made this with Retroarch in mind so results may vary if you use a different emulator. Settings: 1870 Width 928 Height hybrid/top Hybrid Layout: Ratio 2:1 NDS.cfg

  15. Hello, I have a little problem with "RetroArch" and the "GameBoy" I tried all the cores but none of them launch my "gameboy" roms, on the other hand if I use "Virtualboy" as an emuulator it works, I absolutely want RetroArch for backups and the like, thanks in advance for your help.🥺
  16. Hi i've recently followed the guide to install SNES ROMs through Retroarch (Emulating the SNES tutorial) - and it worked well using the balanced core !! Although I skipped the config element. I now want to play with shaders so i have gone back to follow the tutorial... I know that since the tutorial that launchbox has since been updated, so I couldn't completely follow the steps. I therefore placed the config file reference into the 'extra command line parameters". This appeared to work ok for the shaders I set ( they look great) but on starting the game it opens in a separate win

  19. I tried Retroarch a while back, when I first started playing with LaunchBox, and at the time didn't see what the fuss was about... looked nice but, didn't find it very new-user friendly for figuring it out. Seen a few how-to vids since then that mention the same thing. I have had a lot of luck with the individual emulators though, finally think I have a grasp on MAME. I do see some mentions of Retroarch having some options for making games look better though? Not sure if upscaling, smoothing or what.... Seen a lot of posts about Retroarch vs Individual Emulators, but most respon
  20. Hi i have imported successfully Bally Astrocade to launchbox but unfortunately i cannot get the emulator to work. I have seen some information on the forum but still i cannot figure it out. I have tried mame and retroarch but no success. On retroarch i have tried Mame, mame2014 and MESS core i get a flash of a window and then dissapears. I have also read that i have to do MESS bioses to system folder of Retroarch and i did. With-regards MAME i do not even get the flash window. I have also put the bioses on rom folder of MAME. Any help would be appreciated.
  21. I've searched through the forums to solve my issue. There was a posting in March 2016 where someone had the same issue I have, but the problem that was solved for them did not work for me and was wondering if I was missing anything. I have a problem where Launchbox wont load my 3DO games via Retroarch 1.3.6 (4DO). I go into Retroarch and can load the games no problem. I went back into Launchbox and changed the games to load the .iso file instead of the .cue sheet and still have the same problem, I click on a game and nothing happens. I also tried using custom command-
  22. Hello all, I am having some issues with controller configuration and hoping someone can help. I play my games using Big Box launched through SteamLink. I recently bought some Vilros Retro Gaming USB controllers. I have setup custom controller config and set the parameters in LaunchBox to use them. All of that works great. However, if I launch Big Box from Steam (both on the PC and using SteamLink), the controllers no longer work correctly inside RetroArch. The controllers work in Big Box and in SteamLink just fine. Its just once I am in game. I went to the quick menu to check th

  24. Hello all, I just updated my retroarch build to the latest version 1.8.1 at the time typing this. I updated my cores and core info files, and noticed a new core called NeoCD (2019). A Neogeo CD emulation core in retroarch. I was happy to try it out then I noticed that I couldn't get any of the bios files I have working with this core. Anyone else having this issue? Has anyone else tried this core yet? I also checked here too: (didn't help me much) https://github.com/libretro/neocd_libretro
