Retroarch
« on: May 05, 2020, 08:18:48 PM »
Does anyone know how to set up retroarch correctly with AM? I'm able to run retro arch without any issue but AM isn't playing the games it recognizes non-compressed files but they dont work.

The file directories, emulator and operating system will be different for everyone but here's a rough idea. You can probably add more file extensions under the romext part if the roms aren't compressed.

Windows 10
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.4.1
#
executable           C:\retroarch\retroarch.exe
args                 -L cores\mame_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"
rompath              C:\retroarch\rom\
romext               .zip
system               Arcade
info_source          listxml
artwork    flyer           
artwork    marquee         
artwork    snap            C:\retroarch\video
artwork    wheel           C:\retroarch\wheel

Linux, Manjaro
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.6.1
#
executable           retroarch
args                 -L $HOME/snap/retroarch/393/.config/retroarch/cores/mgba_libretro.so "[romfilename]"
rompath              $HOME/Desktop/GAMES/gba
romext               .zip
system               Nintendo Game Boy Advance
info_source          thegamesdb.net
artwork    flyer           
artwork    marquee         
artwork    snap            $HOME/Desktop/GAMES/gbavid
artwork    wheel

Below is the updated info

For Windows:
executable           C:\retroarch\retroarch
args                    %file -L cores/mame_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"
rompath              C:\MAME\roms\
romext               .zip

For Linux:
executable           retroarch
args                    -L "cores/mame_libretro.so" "[romfilename]"
rompath              /MAME/roms/
romext               .zip
