Emulator Command Line Help (MAME / Retroarch)

Recommended Posts

Hi All, thanks for taking a look at this post!

I'm using Launchbox with Retroarch and having the best results with the MAME2016 core.

The issue I'm having is Launchbox won't launch ROMs without a command line option. When I set it per game with "-L cores/mame2016_libreto.dll" the ROMs run just fine. YAY!

But when I use that command line option in Launchbox's emulator global settings, nothing launches.

So my question is can someone tell me what syntax / command line option to use to get the global emulator setting to always use mame2016_libreto.dll?

Thanks again,

Will.

As you can see "Arcade" doesn't have an entry, which I've stumbled across before and find to be weird but have no idea how to address. Thanks again for your help with this, I feel if I could get the "arcade" setting right all of my issues would go away and I wouldn't need to mess about with the command line at all, which would be awesome.

You just need to add it in the empty cell at the bottom of that associated platforms list.

OMG you rock! That fixed it!

If anyone's lurking or comes to this thread in the future I added "Arcade" to the empty cell (just manually typed it in there) and under "core" mame2016_libretro was already in the drop down. I set core to mame2016_libretro and checked "default emulator". ROMs now launch without any command line options set.

Thanks again!

Will.

That dropdown is showing the cores you actually have downloaded in your Retroarch/cores folder.
