NEC Turbografx-CD association with retroarch

Recommended Posts

TL;DR How can I manually add a platform association for NEC Turbografx-CD to Launchbox?

Hi, I have a fully imported set of games for NEC Turbografx-CD with Retroarch as the default emulator. 

I can load these games via retroarch.exe directly, but nothing happens with Launchbox (I'm testing on a Adams Family.CHD I made since Retroarch only compresses the first file in a .7zip file, so I know that problem is fixed)

What I've narrowed it down to is possibly Launchbox isn't calling the right core because there is no platform association for NEC Turbografx-CD in the Platform Association settings? 

As you can see from the attached image, Launchbox isn't associating the NEC Turbografx-CD with my chosen emulator, Retroarch. (I've confirmed it hasn't been associated with any other configured emulator as well).

It doesn't appear there is any option to "add a platform" under the Edit Emulator Screen. There is only that option on the "Manage Platforms" screen, and the issue is, it's already there. So how does one add a platform association when the option to add one isn't available on the Edit Emulator screen?

Well that's not very intuitive is it (scrolling past the alphabetical list of options to click on a field to add whereas the rest of the interface has interactive buttons to add fields)? 😃 

However, TYVM for pointing that out! I certainly won't forget now and my games are launching as expected! 

You are a huge time saver, thanks for taking the time to help me out, it's greatly appreciated!
