@Kmetz7547 I'm not an admin here or anything but to be more specific, could you provide the emulator names instead of system names? For example, Nintendo NES = nes.emu, retroarch, etc. Also, I'm wondering which android emulator plays Bally Astrocade games? I'm also doing some testing with this, so your list could be very helpful

Great work! Just wondering, all of those non-working retroarch cores, are they working at all without the use of LaunchBox?

The new version list out lot of not games app in Android list. Could you add option to hide this app or delete it.

Due to limited space I have to delete some of the roms to fit in my phone, however I forgot to delete the image. Now there are lot of games but no rom in my list of games. Could you add a function that auto delete games in that list that has no rom.

@Jason Carr

Could you hinder that zipped games are extracted before loading? Because on my computer the zip files are loaded directly and the save files are named after the zip file and not the game file in the archive.

I want to synchronize my save folder on the computer with my folder on my android device. But the save files are not compatible at the moment because Retroarch is looking for the game file name and not the zip file.

I think that this has nothing to do with retroarch on android because in retroarch i can load the games without extracting.

 

EDIT: Nevermind, I did not see that there is a new version that solved my problem. Thanks. :D

I have another problem. Since the game loading screen has been added launchbox is loosing focus after returning back to LB from a game and I can not control it with my controller. In need to go out of the platform per touchscreen and go back in. Then I can control it again with the controller.

I'm getting the same results with just retroarch.. I'm guessing we need to add some other emulator support as I can get alot of these running with the use of separate emus besides androids retroarch

Indeed. The cores you mentioned, especially MESS2015, are very tricky and sometimes very frustrating to get working within Retroarch. Also, for some cores like freeintv, you need to have the necessary bios files in the system folder in order for Retroarch to work properly

Also, I am noticing when I try and add more games to a specific system, retroarch isnt picking up all my games. I try uninstalling and reinstalling but still only picks up initial games. Is this just me?

Sega Saturn for instance.....

Have you tried 7z instead od rar files. 

I'm only using 7z and I'm not seeing this issue on up dating the packet.

I had this issue. So I think what's happening is that when you try to copy over additional games for an existing platform in Android Launchbox, the [Sega Saturn].xml file (in Data\Platforms) does not merge with the existing file. I guess it doesn't overwrite so that's why you only see original games.

What you could try is, in desktop, select all the games that you have already copied to Android for export again. Then just copy over the Sega Saturn.xml file that was created to the Data\Platforms folder in Android. This should allow you to see all those games in Launchbox - they should already work ok in Retroarch now though.

I imagine that for the mess issue that LB isn't feeding it the system specific name and media call so it doesn't start any of the systems. ie coleco -cart probably isn't being passed along to RA so it wouldn't work to start any Colecovision games.

@Jason Carr latest Beta finds added a lot of apps that isn't games. I see no way off removing them?

Fixed missing games issue from Android platform; due to the poor classification of games vs. apps on Android, some apps may show up now, but at least all games will be included. Eventually you'll be able to hide apps that you don't want displayed.

@ALIE This is on the radar and you will eventually be able to hide those

Do They Boot from your Launchbox on PC?  If so, then u have everything u need for these 3 systems.. 

Download Emulators Retroarch and PPSSPP from the google play store and use these cores

Thank you very much for all the testing. For these particular issues, please let me know what emulator/core was used and not working. I would say that most of these issues are most likely emulator issues, but if there is something for us to fix in LaunchBox for Android, it would be good to know that.

Side note ,

I have uploaded my sony psp minis and the app sees them but provides no emulator..

ppsspp works with these so could this be updated on a future release?

Thanks, back to testing....

Gotcha; I just added the Sony PSP Minis platform in for the next Android beta.

OK cool I had DraStic installed already and figured it was an option because of this. 

Good to know its an option its a solid loader. 

 

I set up a new launchbox to try platforms because pulling from my collection took to long. 

What are the current systems compatible? 

 

The exporter should tell you what systems are compatible if you select the option to export your whole collection.

Thanks for this; sorry, I hadn't yet seen it before my previous reply.

The next question is whether these systems are working without LaunchBox, but looking above it looks like the answer is no. In some cases, it could be because of missing BIOS files, or incompatible ROMs, or something of that nature (even could be a glitch with Retroarch on Android for that core).

If anyone knows of good, working emulators for these platforms on Android, please let me know, and I can add them in.
