Putting Working Collection ON USB Stick

Recommended Posts

I wanted to create a small emu collection on a USB stick that I can take with me and plugin to any computer I'm using at the time. What is the best way, if possible, to install Launchbox, retroarch, and your roms onto a USB stick so you can play anywhere? I assume one would just install everything to the USB drive like any other drive and it should work but I wanted to confirm this with the community in case there are steps I might not consider.

Just install the same way you would any drive. I will warn you though performance will probably be awful. USB sticks are simply not designed for constant reads and writes, they are for storage, not for running programs from.

I started creating a sizeable collection on Android. Allows me to play anywhere with great performance. I'm finding emu apps outside of Retroarch sometimes cost money, which of course is fair, but I need more time to see how much I'll actually play via smartphone before I commit. The Launchbox app got me real excited; too bad premium members couldn't get a copy. But it's only a few bucks.

I just use Retroarch on Android, its free and covers all the systems i can run on a Android phone.
