    Official RetroArch Thread


    What is RetroArch?

    RetroArch is a multi-system frontend which allows you to run many different emulators and other programs ("cores") through a unified interface. There are currently 28 different systems supported on Wii U, along with RetroArch features such as XMB. While far from complete, the Wii U port is constantly growing as features and cores are added.

    Finally full emulation on Wii U mode.

    Any chance we're going to see Genesis emulation?

    it has the sound already fixed, also I've made a new build just now which allows you to disable vsync in the options, helping some snes games like star fox to run at a constant 60fps without any audio problems.

    Tried a few games and all play fine apart from Mario kart which crashes a few seconds after a race starts. It's great to finally have a snes emu can't wait to see this improve in the future. Thanks for all the hard work on this.

    This is a pleasant surprise, hopefully the Snes9x version with Blargg's core will be uploaded; don't get me wrong, but this is a big step :P :grog:

    @ShadowOne333 it begins

    Tried another download of the rom and got round one lap then the same thing happened. Tried again and this time even though I was on the track lacitu kept picking me up like I was out of bounds yet I was on the track. Then it crashed again.

    I thought this snes9x core was based on 1.52, and this had blargg already?

    weird. I'll give super mario kart a shot and come back.

    Snes9x 2010? That's before 1.52, which was released in 2011, unless of course, this has the core merged in it? I'll ask the OP, @aliaspider Does this core have Blarrg's S-SMP in it (for better sound)? Or will the 1.52 and on be ported over in the near future?

    A good test would be Earthworm Jim 2, that relies on audio streaming and timing to get right.

    Oh man, I can't believe this is happening already, I love it :P Gonna test later ^_^


    And thank you for your guys' hard work :D
