Retroarch Bios Files


Recommended Posts

I am not asking for you to send me files, just names of files and their sha1 value.

Trying to locate a list of all the bios files that retroarch requires. I went through the retroarch wiki and read all the core readme files and found a list of the following. If someone has all of the bios files Retroarch uses, could you run this windows command line on your folder? It will write all the names of the files and the sha1 values of that file to a BiosHash.txt file. I don't know if I got all of them so if you have more than me, or know you have a full list of Retroarch bioses that are required, please run the cmd command below and share it. Do not worry about mame bioses as that is taken care of in the main mame packages.

Open up command prompt by pressing the windows key and type in CMD. Open command prompt. 

Change directory to where your bios files are stored. To change directory use "cd X:/path/to/bios/folder/here" where X is the drive name and the path to bios folder is the path to the bios folder. Then copy and paste the following in CMD and run it. To paste into CMD just right click when the line below is copied to your clip board.

for /r %%v in (*.*)  do (CertUtil -hashfile %%v) >> BiosHash.txt

List of my files that I have found so far:

SHA1 hash of file L:\Bios\5200.rom:

SHA1 hash of file L:\Bios\dc_boot.bin:

SHA1 hash of file L:\Bios\dc_flash.bin:

SHA1 hash of file L:\Bios\disksys.rom:

SHA1 hash of file L:\Bios\gba_bios.bin:

SHA1 hash of file L:\Bios\hash.bat:

Oh I missed that, I'm sorry. xD I swear I read it... and I just missed it. I'm sorry. Yea, they use MD5 for their check, and it wont get you the CRC, but you'll have a list to go off of. I do know there is a correct "RetroArch BIOS" pack out there too. You could always grab the pack and check against that.
