Need help with 3DS: RetroArch


Recommended Posts

I am having trouble getting 3ds roms to work with retroarch. I am using Launchbox as my menu/launcher, but I have confirmed this is not a Launchbox issue. I have many core/roms working. NES, SNES, SMS, Genesis, etc etc etc. When I try to run a citra game through Launchbox I get the starting splash, but it exits and the game never runs. I have downloaded the citra core and run the "Update databases". When I run retroarch directly and try to scan my 3ds rom dir, no new games are displayed. Even if I try scanning a single game, it finds nothing.

Finally, if I run, for example:

retroarch.exe -L "cores\citra_libretro.dll"  "D:\Nintendo 3DS\ROMS\Bust-A-Move Universe (USA) (En,Fr,Es).3ds"

I get nothing. prompt just returns and retroarch never launches. A similar command for an NES game works fine.

These same roms work fine with a full Citra install.

What am I doing wrong?
