Have you tried the Filezilla ftp method? GUI interface. Easy as drag and drop into the folders. Made it a lot easier to assign an icon for my emulators.

Guys how are you, maybe can you give some hits why it’s not working my build for GBA, this is my configuration for action.config file:

ROM=/home/cpi/games/GAME BOY
ROM_SO=/home/cpi/apps/emulators/mgba_libretro.so
EXT=gb,gbc,gba
LAUNCHER=retroarch -L
TITLE=GAME BOY
SO_URL=https://buildbot.libretro.com/nightly/linux/armv7-neon-hf/latest/mgba_libretro.so.zip

i do the same steeps for SNES and its working fine any recomendations?

Thanks in advance.

Br,

[this is so embarrassing, i forgot to unzip the files, released when see the file extensions on the action.config file.

What core do you recommend for SNES? I’m trying the Core “snes9x” but I have a lot of problems with the sound … Does any other Core work better than this one?
And for Mega Drive and Mega 32X? I know there is a version of PicoDrive “Standalone”, but I would like to use them through RetroArch.

There is an optimized snes9x you can find on this forum same goes for picodrive there is a retroarch core in one of the threads

Hi.

I’m a noob when in comes to this coding stuff, and I came across a issue when following the tutorial.
There isn’t a directory in my GameShell that is the following:
/home/cpi/apps/launcher/Menu/GameShell/20_Retro\ Games/
This also doesn’t work when ‘20_Retro\ Games/’ is replaced with the listed alternatives.
Instead, I have the following:
/home/cpi/launcher/Menu/GameShell/20_Retro Games
I was wondering if this would be the directory that I would create the folder, and use when following all of the other steps.

Thanks!

I’m having the same issue. I was able to install a few emulators, but I used the new script on here to expand my memory card and now I don’t know how to install anymore emulators because the file structure is different


#70

i also have this issue plus when I type the code without the apps word, it says “too many arguments”
pls help ASAP


#71

I copied the path from the github repository (and there it was with apps) as I didn´t have my Clockwork at hand. So use this one:

cd /home/cpi/launcher/Menu/GameShell/20_Retro\ Games/

or

cd ‘/home/cpi/apps/launcher/Menu/GameShell/20_Retro Games/’


#72

this works but I get the code “too many arguments”


#73

Okay I found the reason…

The forum changes the ’ character because I used the blockqute instead of code format, try and copy this one.

cd '/home/cpi/apps/launcher/Menu/GameShell/20_Retro Games/'

I used this one and it worked:
cd /home/cpi/launcher/Menu/GameShell/20_Retro\ Games/

Thanks so much!

What should be put in the “action.config” file to hide the extensions? I would like to be able to hide the .bin files from PSX and only the .cue will appear, that there are games with multiple .bin files


#76

if you open the action.config file for your PSX emulator, you should see a list of extensions next to “EXT=”
if you remove “bin” from that list, and then reboot your gameshell or reload the UI, it should only show the cue files or whatever else
