Retroarch only works on Sega systems??

Recommended Posts

Hi mates!

I have a big problem, I only get Retroarch to work on Sega systems, such as Master system, genesis, 32x.

When I try it on something else. it just turns black and nothing happens. And I have downloaded the right core and put the correct text in. "default command line parameters" such as -L "cores\stella_libretro.dll" and so on.

It does not even woth outside Lauchbox. I have solved it by using other emulators for other systems, but now I cant seem to find a good emulator for Atari Jaguar.

 

Please help!=)

Did you download the cores for the systems you want to emulate ?

Jaguar emulation is kinda bad still. I mean it plays most games fairly good but there are some that are still broken.

You can check the bios to make sure they are good by loading the core and viewing the core information.

You will want cue + bin format since those are the most compatible. Retroarch can be picky about the quality of dumps and there are a lot of bad dumps out there.

Check your bios by loading the core and no game and checking the core information like in my screenshot. If it says your bios are fine then you still have a bad disk image.

Yes critical files are missing. But I have them in Sytems folder. Do I perhaps need to rename them`? They are called PC Engine CD-Rom System BIOS (1988)(NEC Home Electronics)(WD) - [Syscard3].pce and so on.

Rename it to syscard3.pce and see if it detects it, it could still be a bad or incompatible version for Retroarch. Naming and md5 checksums matter.

With as many questions are posted about what to name the RA bios files (myself included) it would probably be helpful to have a list posted somewhere people could link to when there's a question.

Most of the cores have all the info here as well as in the core information itself in Retroarch. Trust me, even if we did have a post for it people will still have problems and ask because many other questions get asked while the answers are in stickied threads.
