    You just have to try different builds. Or use the ones in the homebrew app store

    You have to try them systematically, I'm afraid.

    Ok i'll obtain the retroarch from the app store.

    So should I do this as well for all of the "cores" too? Stick with the cores from the app store? Cause i'm using the core pack from todays date on GitHub.

    Try them , if they work for you then cool . the store will always contain the latest apps "that work" wether there is newer versions or not.

    I find that a bit worrisome TBH, about the future of this port, etc. Does that mean what I assume it to mean? No more updates?

    And I kinda only have like, two platforms and don't use phones for RetroArch, I realize that it's the holidays. I'm speaking generally; there haven't been updates for the Wii U port for about two weeks or so, that's all I'm saying. As such, there's no need for people to use the 1/2/17 builds.

    Once I can figure out the problem with my channels installed on the system menu requiring HBL to be ran at least once before they are ran, they shouldn't require this, I will be working on adding things to Retroarch like multiple controllers. The source code is open and he takes PRs, I can't be the only developer that wants to eventually work on this, or am I?

    I don't know what's going on with the RA port anymore,. I know it's the holidays and that's fine, I hope it eventually picks up. I got myself a Wii U Pro I want to try instead of the clunky game pad.

    Ok I know ive said this before but, one more question.

    I cant change the buttons within the MAME menu "Input (this game)" I was looking to try out Crusin USA, and I cannot set the ENTER button to my choosing, I cant set any buttons for that matter within that whole menu. I am using the App Store version of both RetroArch & MAME2003. Thanks. :-)

    the_randomizer aka mikemeister789 aka Nintendo_nerd85 aka foxwhisperer aka roflcopter777 has been a whiner in every other forum and github I have seen him, it is hardly a surprise to see him being a jerk about not having updates without contributing a thing. do not be surprised if we lose this project too thx to him

    Dude you do this on every thread every 10 pages or so...
    There is no need to be dramatic about it.

    Anybody has releases, or versions number, without the problem of DSI error when closing and loading a second game ? The ones on the App store do that but I think that I remember that at some point it was solved (also maybe later ?)

    It's great of you tackling adding multiple controllers to Wii U RetroArch! Can't wait to play 3rd Strike with something other than the gamepad.
