    Pretty much yes.

    The old RetriX tutorial should be for discussions related to installation and other FAQ's

    This is for general discussion and or feature suggestions for absestos to incorporate into RetriX.

    so theres no way to just back up the saves because the way the cores are setup it would crash when updating?

    is this a retroacrh thing because other emulators support backing up saves to the cloud but as far as i know retroarch themselves dont support this so i guess your right

    thats a shame because you want to stay updated but you also dont want to lose your progress in games either

    Yeah I was kinda hoping that Cloud Saves would come eventually. Oh well. @Absestos is there any way you can at least backup your saves on to removable storage?

    So is Retroarch built into Retrix? If so, can you access the Retroarch menu to tweak settings like Rewind, etc?

    RetriX is an alternative front-end to libretro core. It was born out of the desire to improve the Retroarch/libretro project

    @Absestos How is Parallel64 coming along? Any chance we may see N64 support on RetriX anytime soon?

    Has anyone gotten PS1 emulation working? I have 2 out of the 3 bios files imported but when I try to start a game it complains about a missing bios. I've tried installing the 3rd bios like 5 times but it says "incorrect file" every time. The file is "scph5502.bin".

    you need all 3 bios for some reason also emulation for ps1 is to slow tobe playable but if you still want the bios let me know

    Another option for ya might be WinPSe. @dominater01 Can help ya out. It runs pretty decent for the most part but has some bugs with regards to save/load states. Dynarec is on it's way to beetlepsx soon which should speed up PS1 Emulation in RetriX Greatly.

    Yeah, I figured something like that was the issue considering PPSSPP runs great.

    New release - this one has a bunch of minor bugfixes. Hopefully the issue that was causing so many crashes a while ago on the Xbox is fixed instead of just hidden.

    As usual, get it at www.retrix.me

    With regards to N64, I have done a major refactoring of RetriX to make it work more like Retroarch from the cores' point of view.
    On the plus side, ParallelN64 now "works" without crashing immediately; on the minus side, it is still completely broken (no video, random noise for audio, causes the app to freeze after a while).
    I honestly do not know what else I can do to make it work.

    Saturn is proving similarly pointless.

    These days my time is taken up trying to work with Libretro maintainers: RetriX uses 14 cores right now and I am having to maintain my own fork of each.
    This is not sustainable - the only way this project is going to continue is if I can get Libretro to support UWP as a platform going forward.
    To do this, I will have to help them port Retroarch in addition to add functionality to the Libretro API itself. It is a lot of work and it means RetriX development is going to slow down for the time being.

    Thanks for the update @asbestos. Do what you have to do to move Retrix forward, even if it means slowing down in the interim. Honestly in my opinion Retrix has more than enough cores. I mean sure Saturn, N64, and Dreamcast would be nice but I never expected something like your project "Retrix" to ever even happen in the first place. Let alone emulate over 14 different systems and play thousands if not hundreds or thousands of games. Hands down Retrix is the best thing I've seen come out of this scene.

    @dominater01 Sick!...thank you!

    So is it possible to save the status on the games? Is it only certain ones?
    With certain consoles I notice a list of save states that come up. Not sure how to save but I do see it.

    @dominater01 I saw in one of your YT videos that you were able to launch TG16 via the PC-EFX icon on Retrix.
    The TG16 files I have in my FBA rom set doesn't seem to launch when I try it. I've tried opening them with all the different NEC (PC) icons on Retrix and it just tells me I'm missing files.
    I wonder if these roms aren't correct.

    to save states and load press start and select together in game

    tg16, fx or any other system you cant use fba roms at all on other consoles even tho there the same games there not its the same for mame games you cant use the same games you need specific games for each system so only arcade and neogeo work on fba all other roms that pack came with can be deleted because there not supported and theres really no since to make them supported since they work already you just need original games for the specific systems you play

    i mean other systems like sega genesis, turbo grafx 16, game gear etc. of course theres other systems fba supports that do work which is why i said arcade games
