How to change language settings for RetroArch? (6.1.1 DragonBlaze)



  • How do I access the language settings for RetroArch? The RetroArch menus are in French, but all the language settings in recalbox.conf have been set to US English. I would like the RetroArch menus to be in US English. Here is what my config file looks like:

    # System Variable
    # You can configure your recalbox from here
    # To set a variable, remove the first ; on the line

    @flux Start a game that uses retroarch (SNES for example), press Hotkey + B to access the Retroarch menu, scroll through the options until you find the user options, change the language as you wish.



  • @Zing Ok, I found it. Thank you!
