Hi there,

 

I am using launchbox/bigbox to play my playstation games. Thte point is that I installed many playstation cores on retroarch, but it seems that when I launch a playstation game the system automatically run beetle-psx, instead I would like to use duckstation as default core.

 

I tried some stuff, I went on the retroarch program, I run duskstation to play a game and than I went to overrayd configuration saving the duckstation emulator to be the main ps emulator, but once I go back to launchbox it automatically run beetle-psx. In the case I delete the beeetle-psx core, the games just don't start.

In the case I use bigbox, I go to a game and select "launch with", so I select retroarch and then I just have the option "mednaffen-psx", and can't select other cores.

So, how can I use a specific core to run games on launchbox bigbox?

Make sure you have actually installed the core in RetroArch first or it will not show up in list of cores.

You need to tell Launchbox which core to use. Tools/Manage Emulators/Associated Platform Tab, find PS1 which will currently have beetle as the core, double click that to open the dropdown and choose Duckstation instead.
