Will it scan the ones you got and tell you which ones have been updated? I like the simplicity. I wanted to see if the retroarch. Let me know what I can do. I use a local virtual server to test download the file.
And what file URL it displays in the textbox when that happens. In order to compare against the ones online, the dates must be consistent. But they are different for the file depending on where you look. Oh man if you can implement a core updater function to check latest versus installed cores this would be awesome. I separate my retroarch setups by console. Can you make it so I can choose those locations at once to update them all?
Why do you separate them to different folders instead of using Playlists and a different config for each console? And I only use retroarch for emus that have poor controller support the single download could be used to be distributed to the different locations. A plus sign button to add more locations would probably do. So we would need a fix for that. I could also have it detect if 7z. Or have an option to set the 7-Zip directory manually.
I have all my programs installed on an external but still internal hdd. So I dont have those installed on the system drive. I guess having us select it like we do the retroarch exe would suffice. How come this needs one of those when other program updaters have it so that it still unpacks it without having such?
Windows not able to open 7z natively. The Cores are in zip format, but retroarch. One thing i always wondered, is there a way to see the changelog of each updated core? Thanks for this awesome little tool. Does it do both cores and retroarch. Windows devices. Replaces Configs with default. Cores - Updates currently installed Cores.

MoG - Those are nightly, bleeding edge builds, compiled every night at an arbitrary time so newer build might not always or might even be broken so don't be afraid to rollback to an older version if a newer one is broken thanks Rj.

While the Gambatte core itself is great, the 3DS RetroArch port is quite unfinished and currently locks everything to stretched, full screen display. Sound also seems a bit iffy so far. Compatibility is probably a bit better than GameYob, e. Bomb Jack runs, but any game that works will probably be more enjoyable on GameYob or Virtual Console at the moment.

However, there's still a significant amount of PC users that remember playing 2-bit games on sturdy handheld consoles or other classical titles on their computer and those are just not compatible with modern computers. Here's where Portable RetroArch lends a helpful hand. Since it's the portable version of RetroArchas its name strongly suggests, this application requires no additional setup on the target computer.
You still need to provide it with DirectX 9. Simply unpacking the archive it comes in and launching the appropriate executable grants you full access to its functions and lets you enjoy it on the spot. Portable RetroArch 's interface might put a smile on PS3 or PSP users' faces, as it resembles the classical XMB menu, with the left-right category navigation and up-down sub-category browsing style. However, users that don't own these consoles can get quickly familiarized with its layout just as fine, as it doesn't come with complicated or highly-specific descriptions.
Well, maybe there are a few sections like that, but after you fiddle with them once or twice, you'll get it, we promise. This application was designed to help users relive those "good ol' days" when game characters were merely a bunch of pixels on a 66 mm screen, but the joy of playing those titles or finishing a challenging game was way higher.
More so, it can also run old, unsupported applications. All you have to do is choose the console you want to emulate, have a bunch of ROMs prepared on your computer and then scan your PC with the dedicated tool within the app. If you're more of a tinkerer, you might want to modify some of the app's default settings. No problem here, as Portable RetroArch provides you with a rich configuration menu where you can adjust settings related to drivers, user interface, network, achievements yes, achievementsplaylists and recording.
Most of the settings are quite intuitive and should be easy to modify to your will, as some of them can be toggled while others require selecting a specific value from a menu. All in all, if you're trying to revive some of the classic titles on your handheld consoles, you might give Portable RetroArch a try, as it comes packed with everything you need, and then some.
It requires no setup, provides you with a massive collection of devices that can be emulated, but requires you to fetch the ROMs yourself and might feel a bit sluggish on not-so-new computers.
First and foremost consider this:
Portable RetroArch. Enjoy old applications on newer computers, play classical releases and unlock achievements by turning to this portable application. Portable RetroArch was reviewed by Vlad Constantinescu. New in Portable RetroArch 1.This now means you can download both stable and nightly builds of RetroArch and majority of the cores directly from official sources which are built and optimized specifically for the classic consoles.

You can compile them for your own needs if needed. If you have a different architecture ARM device you should be able to easily adjust the classic platforms slightly to suit your needs.
We will be providing a detailed compilation guide for the classics and other ARM devices in the libretro documentation in due course. Please note that some cores will run badly on the limited hardware. No amount of build optimization will fix this!
Here is a small video showcasing the functionality:.
Big thanks to Autechre for helping make this partnership a reality and facilitating the project. Commodore Fixed and optimized N64 cores Mupen64Plus and Parallel — The ancient builds of mupen and glupen have been moonlighted and classic specific build optimizations and fixes have been made for the N64 cores which allow for more compatible and higher FPS playback on some titles.

Games and emulated consoles are constantly being added to the application's library, and can be immediately downloaded and added to your own collection thanks to the built-in core updater.
It can also load assets, cheat codes, artwork, and shaders, among other things. It might be confusing at first to figure out how the app works. However, there's help documentation available. Basically, it comes down to selecting the console you wish to emulate a game for via the core updater, such as Amiga, Arcade or Atariindependently downloading ROM games prior to running this tool, asking RetroArch to scan the computer for games, then picking a game from the main menu and running it provided that you have chosen the correct emulated console.
The program can auto-detect your collection and sort games.
There are a wide range of options that can be configured for this app. For instance, drivers can be handpicked for the joypad, video, audio, audio resampler, camera, location, menu, and recording. Additional options concern the onscreen display, UI appearance, achievements, network, playlists, user information, default file locations, and privacy.
Video settings can be configured when it comes to suspending the screensaver, showing FPS, using fullscreen mode, vertical refresh rate, aspect ratio, windowed scale, integer scale, frame throttle, and other properties. As for audio, you can tinker with muting, volume level, mixer volume level, sync, latency, device, and DSP plugin. RetroArch is resource-demanding and may not work properly on machines without a powerful GPU. Otherwise, it's very easy to use once you get the hang of things.
It's surely an essential tool for any user who wishes to play classical games on modern desktops and consoles using a cross-platform emulator with rich downloadable content. Play classical games and launch old applications on modern computers and consoles using this cross-platform, open-source emulator that has an online library, achievements, and more.

Original game ran at 70fps. Note: normal libretro demos are still there. Only RetroPad currently works. We have found that there are far less sound issues at 70Hz and above such as Hz.
We held a poll earlier this week on Twitter, asking our users whether they would like us to stay with XMB as the default UI, or switch to Ozone. Nothing really, we are not abandoning it, and we will also keep further improving it. The only thing that changes is that Ozone will start now as the default menu UI. If you want to switch back to XMB, that is possible too. Then restart RetroArch.
As previous users of Ozone will already know, Ozone in the past did not really scale well beyond p.
Libretro and Classic/Mini Consoles update!
This has now been fixed by jdgleaver. Ozone is now using DPI-based scaling, so it should scale correctly whether you are running at 4K or p or even lower. To make it slower, lower the value, and to make it bigger, increase it.
