    remember you cant rename the games or they wont work but only for fba (and neogeo? i think) and they have to be zipped because those roms are setup in away that the emulator reads it

    @dominater01 Ok, so do I only unzip .001? Or do I unzip each one separately? Because after I unzipped the .001 file, which took quite a while, it produced a FB Alpha v0.2.97.39 Non-Merged folder and within there contained a FB Alpha v0.2.97.39 roms folder.
    In that FB Alpha v0.2.97.39 roms folder there were different folders based on different consoles, Coleco, TG16, Gamegear, etc. and then there was a Roms folder as well.

    Which roms do I copy over? Can I copy over all of them? Will this play Coleco, TG16, Gamegear, games as well?

    And thanks for the tip about renaming them.

    I think it is possible if I understand the code, asbestos can correct me if I am wrong, but from what I understand of the code. each emulator has separate files for video and input, etc. and that is the reason why game boy advance has bigger screen than other emulators, my only problem is I do not know how to enforce it because there are a lot of variables that are labeled resolution and I do not know which one I should change

    yeah same here, I tried all the different console folders and only the one in the 'roms' folder work for me.
    would be awesome if the other consoles worked

    not sure why some of the roms play sideways, like 1942. is there a way to correct this?

    also, I noticed with roms there are so many different files for the same game, for ex. for altered beast, I see an altbeast, altbeast2, altbeast4, etc.
    and only certain ones work. do you guys usually just delete the ones that don't work? do you need all of them in there?

    Believe me the last thing you want is the app saving bios files into a cloud storage account linked to your identity, for legal reasons.

    It is also why I do not join conversations or answer questions related to bios files. The most i can say is what those files should hash to in order to work.

    Now that we have our own "Xbox One - Hacking and Homebrew" Section:

    All future discussion of RetriX not related to "How do I install Retrix" should be directed to the official RetriX thread here

    anyway to add gamesaves to cloud storage so when we update or delete the emulator it would sync back to the emulator

    im sure im not the only one who wants/needs this feature

    That is also not a good idea: savestates are basically memory dumps from the cores, which means that sharing between devices (sometimes even versions of the same core) can be impossible. The whole app just crashes.

    Encouraging sharing means way more people encountering issues.
