  • Emulating the SNES - How to Set Up Retroarch for Beginners - LaunchBox Tutorials [Updated Tutorial] By SentaiBrad

    • 0
    Today's tutorial is back to basics so that everyone of any skill level can utilize this tutorial and learn how to get SNES up and running and how to set up RetroArch through LaunchBox. I cover importing your SNES games, adding RetroArch to the emulators list, updating RetroArch if you already have it, setting the core in RetroArch, some basic settings like adding and using a PS4 controller with InputMapper, setting custom configs and shader's in RetroArch. I also show you two awesome websites as bonuses, RetroAchievements.org and RomHacking.net, both sites which are invaluable to emulation.
    If you have any questions about anything covered in this tutorial please leave us a comment below or head on over to the forums to ask your questions of us there.
    List of cores that have Achievements (may be outdated or updated at anytime) These are the cores I recommend for Achievements, but the list may be bigger (like Snes9x also works for SNES, but bsnes is a better core).
    Game Boy / Color (gambatte)
    Game Boy Advance (mGBA)
    NES (QuickNES)
    SNES (bsnes)
    Genesis/Mega Drive (picodrive)
    Sega 32x (picodrive)
