Download and use alternative cores through Retroarch menu



  • I was wondering, since you can actually download new cores through Home + B menu, but they don't seem to work (I wasn't really expecting either).

    I ask that because I really wanted to run some MSU-1 enhanced games and other hacks that expands SNES roms over 4mb size limit, but none of the cores current present on Recalbox seems to run those games.

    Is there a solution or something in the works right now? I'd love to have lr-snes9x core on recalbox =)

    HELLO
    no need to download core.

    you need to use a good core, select your game , select button, edit metadata game
    choose emulator : libretro
    choose core : snes-9x



  • @acris Snes9x isn't working for MSU1 enhanced roms (it can't load the proper file, i'm not sure this version is compatible) and also cant run roms over 4mb either.

    I tried few games msu-1
    It work very well with default core or change snes9x core.

    You have a problem with your rom.



  • @acris is that so? Can you tell me how to proper load MSU-1 roms? I'm probably doing something wrong then.

    Edit: I finally made it work. I just needed to make SNES9x (and NOT SNES9X-NEXT) the default core/emulator.

    But.. what about roms over 4mb ("hi-roms"), is there any documentation regarding that? I know its something very specific and not very used, but there's a translation patch for a game I love that uses more than 4mb and I couldn't make it work on snes9x.

    What game ? exactly ?



  • @acris
    There's a portuguese translation of Donkey Kong Country 2, which expands the rom size to 6mb.

    It's on this video https://youtu.be/Z_qZKAxTpBU?t=113.

    I don't understand your problem, hack rom, translated rom , patch rom work all very well with default core.

    I patched Donkey Kong Country 2 usa rom with translated patch ips and it s work fine.
