Amstrad CPC Caprice core added into Retroarch

Recommended Posts

I did notice today that the Caprice core has been added to the cores available in Retroarch's online updater.  I did already have it added but that was through faffing around with a "custom" retroarch.cfg file which sourced the cores from an alternate source (I think Pouter had done a Youtube video in French about it some time ago).

The Amstrad CPC is the first machine I can recall ever owning, it makes me smile replaying some of the classic games (Barbarian is awesome!). Hope this helps some of you guys out, now you don't need to jump through hoops to play the games. Have a great weekend whatever it is you're doing :)

Hi, great new.

It will be more simple to get this core now.

I noticed the crocod core but i didn't see that thez added Caprice 32.

Oupps, just take a look and i can't find it, what is your retroarch version ?

1.6.7 from the playstore. You're right it has gone FFS! I kid you not it was there. I had no luck with using CrocoDS core so I was happy to see Caprice...there were definitely two cores available for Amstrad CPC. I didn't download it as I already had the core added.

I'll keep an eye on it to see if it returns.

Please show us where you got the custom .cfg file for Caprice32 and/or dump the .so file so people can use it easily. Thank you.

I still have the file, although I can't remember here I sourced it from. I do believe Pouteur has a Youtube channel (Fredretrogaming), it's in French but there was a guide to installing Amstrad CPC with a link to that .cfg file I do believe.

Is it possible to setup Player 2? So far, I'm only able to get Player1 working via XBOX360 controller. Ultimately, I'd like to get both players mapped with 360 and keyboard

The Amstrad CPC Caprice 32 core is listed in the online updater. No need to use a custom retroarch.cfg file to install the core
