  1. It would be great if there was a simple reporting system set up... gamecheck.hyperlist-fe.com or something *pipe dreams*
  2. Resurrecting this thread to ask if people have actually tried playing the games. It seems that Chimera crashes when trying to play it using either RetroArch or MESS. Other randomly-sampled games seem to work.
  3. The latest RetroArch module over at the HyperLaunch forums also now supports Satellaview. Tried a few games and they seem to work. However, the module's .ahk lists the system as "Nintendo Super Famicom Satellaview" which is totally wrong. I submitted a change but it hasn't been picked up yet. So for now you'll need to go and edit your RetroArch module. Anyone have the Legend of Zelda games working? They're all listed as not working, according to the list floating around in this thread... I found this site which offers the roms and some IPS patches, but I don't know how to use the patches. I've heard of people somehow "rebuilding" the rom by incorporating the patches into it, but have no idea how to do this myself. I'm also going through the database and will be posting an updated one featuring only working games soon.
  4. I agree - this is not the way to do it. I've already found a bug in the file explorer system of rGUI (when starting in \content), so it would be a bad idea to take the latest build and provide that. In order to distribute cfgs, we need to find one key mapping that works (no double-use of keys, as RetroArch uses keys like "f" to go fullscreen) and then make copies of that one config with the name of each system. Luckily, I have already done this It's frustrating, isn't it? Concerning the overall layout, I don't plan to cover RetroArch standalone at all - I'm treating this guide from the point of view that the person reading it is a HyperLaunch user, and they want to get RetroArch working with their systems in HyperLaunch/HLHQ. I also don't see any need to get into core specifics, because the latest version of the RetroArch module has eliminated ever needing to think about which core you're using (for the most part). The proper cores are set already in the module and I haven't yet encountered a reason they would need to be changed. I don't think we need to focus on specific BIOS settings either, since the notes in the RetroArch module state what you need - and you can also refer to the original MESS module if needed. I think the most important part is just clearl stating where files need to be. I think that setup + configs would be one part where we would discuss general setup, core options that need to be set, and the configs. I don't think configs needs its own section. One section I would add is about overlays and shaders. So here's my modified proposal of what you wrote: I. Background and links to support II. First-time setup and required files - Basic file structure, how to access settings - retroarch-core-options.cfg - retroarch.cfg - Per-system configs - Location of BIOS files - Relevant menu settings III. Using RetroArch in HLHQ - Example system setup - Some things that may be different in other systems (such as setting up vertical games in Lynx/WonderSwan Color, PSX, etc.) - Setting up a keymapper (using your system's RA config as reference) IV. Overlays and shaders - Links to nosh's overlays - How to set up an overlay (x/y coords, etc.) V. Troubleshooting - How to get help (HL log, running RetroArch from command-line to test, etc.) - Common problems How's that sound?
  5. It shouldn't be a concern, as long as you have a %system name%.cfg file in \config, then RetroArch seems to ignore them. (We can thank the magical inner workings of the module for that... ) I don't do PSX emulation, so perhaps I could leave that part up to you? Also it's good to advise that the MESS core currently doesn't do save/load states. Who knows when this will be implemented... I've noticed that if you plug/unplug a controller while RA is open, then that controller won't work. So, it's not recommended you do that Indeed, this is gonna be a lot of work, but I'm willing to put in some time on it. Let's start a Google Doc with an outline before proceeding to write up anything? If you PM me your email I'll send you the link to share it.
  6. I wouldn't hold my breath on 1.1... I think it's a while away still. Who knows.
  7. Ohhh yeah, I forgot you had wrote one, aletterfromthelostdays. I was planning to write one to solve a lot of peoples' issues with getting MESS to run and whatnot. I'd be happy to collaborate!
  8. Sounds like it's time I got to work on that RetroArch guide... is this something people want?
  9. I don't think the MESS menu in the MESS core even does anything, when using MESS through RetroArch. You'll need to do everything through the rGUI. This is my suggestion for using per-system configs in RetroArch: 1. Make a copy of retroarch.cfg and place it in \config. Rename it to the system you're setting up. ie. "Nintendo 64.cfg" 2. Launch an N64 game, hit F1 and then set up ALL your settings and controls. Once you're satisfied with it, make sure save config on exit is enabled, and then close RetroArch. 3. Use Nintendo 64.cfg as a template for all future per-system configs. Setting up Atari 2600 next? Make a copy of Nintendo 64.cfg and rename it to Atari 2600.cfg. Each system needs its own config in RetroArch. This way you set all your controls once, and then you don't need to do it for each system, if your key mappings are staying the same. Tip: You need to change the bind mode to "RetroKeyboard" under input settings if you want to change key mappings to the keyboard. Otherwise leaving it set to "RetroPad" only allows you to map to buttons on your joypad. Hope that helps!
  10. Not sure exactly what you mean by mapping through the rgui or through MESS... but a common reason for not having MESS working in RetroArch is having mess_boot_from_cli set to disabled in retroarch-core-options.cfg. I suggest if you don't have that file to make it with the line "mess_boot_from_cli = "enabled"" and plae a copy in the root directory and in \config. aletterfromthelostdays: I also posted asking in the RetroArch forums here
  11. Has anyone got MESS core save and load states working in RetroArch? The core information states that there's support for it, but when I try it just tells me "Core does not support save states."
  12. I can't get this working at all. I've tried placing "IC Menu Left - Controller 01 - bottomCenter.png" in HyperLaunch\Media\Bezels\Atari 2600\_Default, have ICs enabled and bezels enabled in HLHQ, also have fullscreen bezel set to true. When I try using my keyboard shortcut to access the IC menu or a key mapped to show the left menu, nothing happens. Can someone be a little more concrete and share their config or something instead of these little snippets of what to do? Thanks guys
  13. I actually just removed Zinc because I found out the games are already in MAME. Sure it emulates those games a little differently, graphics-wise, but that's not so important to me.

  15. Sorry, I don't have C64 in my collection...
  16. I too was having problems with AES working for *any* emulator... eventually I just decided to go with MVS and use MAME. That' some useful info you posted though; it would be helpful if you posted it over in the RetroArch thread on the HyperLaunch website: http://www.hyperlaunch.net/forum/showthread.php?251-RetroArch-Module&p=6729#post6729 You shouldn't have to think about what core to use, as the default is already set. You don't need to fill in the core in each system's settings page - that's only for if you want to use something other than the alternate. I think we'll need to work on making that more clear.
  17. AFAIK, ever since I started using RetroArch, it has been \config. I'm really not sure when the config/configs confusion came about... I don't think you need to change that value in every one of your configs since HyperLaunch ignores it anyways. The only one that matters is in the RetroArch module settings, and perhaps you could change the one in retroarch.cfg for those times you may open RetroArch manually to do something.
  18. I've got all those systems working with my setup - feel free to PM me if you have problems. Make sure you're using the latest module, which has now been posted to GIT. So update your HyperLaunch Per-game rotation for Lynx works, but currently there's some confusion with the settings... you use "Edit Global Module Settings" button, then the "Rom Settings" subtab to set up per-game settings. Ignore the warning that pops up stating you should be using "System Specific Module Settings" instead. That page should be deprecated as it only offers rotation and nothing more.
  19. I wouldn't say finalized, but it's getting much closer Per-system configs now work, which is very significant. That means you can do controls, overlays, rotations, etc, all per-system now.
  20. Follow development here: http://www.hyperlaunch.net/forum/showthread.php?251-RetroArch-Module&goto=newpost
  21. The ahk/isd was just updated today for the RetroArch module, over on the HyperLaunch forums. It's getting close to being ready. I'll write a guide soon, promise!
  22. One of the other reasons I wanted to use MESS in RA is because I couldn't find a way to set a key for save/load state without MESS prompting me for which save/load slot to use. Maybe there's a way to do this, but I haven't found it? It means needing a keyboard to press "1" each time. It should be able to auto-save/load to slot 1. Otherwise, it's just nice to have one emulator for almost all your systems. Forgive me for not being familiar with HLSL, but... what is HLSL?
  23. Anyone have the MESS chd versions of Neo Geo CD titles working with the MESS core in RetroArch? I'm getting a lot of driver errors, while every other system using the MESS core is loading games fine...
  24. I too have been wondering about Zinc. I added it to my setup but have yet to finish actually setting it up to play the games. Looking through the romlist, I see games like Aqua Rush and Ehrgeiz are included in MAME, but games like Beastorizer and Bloody Roar are not. Is there a list of which games should be kept and then run in MAME, or do I need to check them title-by-title? I'm wondering why Zinc exists in the first place. Why are some of these roms not included in the MAME set?
