    I'm not seeing any option for "Directory". The only choices I see are:

    Quick Menu
    Load Core
    Load Content
    Information
    Restart RetroArch
    Configurations
    Help
    Quit RetroArch

    I feel like I'm missing something obvious, but I've been looking through the options and I don't see anything about Directory.

    Its true, the new 3ds may be 800 mhz but it lacks many things even low end phones have like neon which allows you to run entire loops as one opcode and is also running armv6 not 7.

    Megaman Legends is well playable with the right settings on N3DS, but sound is still crappy.

    Does anyone know how to fix Retroarch's problem with replacing Japanese characters with gibberish when ROM searching?

    What format should the PSX games be to run as smooth as possible? *.bin/*.cue? or *.iso? another format?

    A format that is used for PSX2PSP-converted games, though I forgot what's it's called. :P

    I think that one your after is the .pbp format of what the psp uses.

    .pbp will run the fastest. Still won't be playable.

    there are quite some games that are playable, if the device is a N3DS and the games are in pbp-format.

    I suggest renaming the ROMs and paths that have these Japanese characters. I'm not a major RetroArch user so I don't know of a better solution.

    Games like FF7 and some 3D RPGs are perfectly playable, though more graphically intensive games will do a bit worse. Ironically 3D ones tend to outperform 2D when it comes to things like world maps since large maps (take FF2 for example) will cause lag.

    Is there any way that each emulator uses its own configuation because every time i make change for one , its same configuration for the other.

    Load the emulator of choice, load any game, make the changes that you want, then from the Quick Menu, select Save Core Overrides.

    Hi, I'm on the 1.6.9 (stable, n3ds) and the gameboy emulators aren't working, they crash when Retroarch says the core needs a content file, PLZ fix it (I've tried using the nightly builds)

    I've just got TGB-Dual (gb, gbc) working which needs testing.
    At the moment it's not possible to load two different games, it just loads the same game twice due to core limitations (core needs to be updated). The controls for the second GB aren't working either. Single GB is working fine so far.
    I'll upload it later this week.

    Though the problems I'm having with the newer nightlies seem to much more often have to do with crashs. I don't really mind the slowdown and crappy sound, but crashing makes me lose so much progress. Or is it perhaps because I'm using savestates too frequently (in order not to lose progress, though...)? Trying to play FF8
