    Somebody had asked if you could add multiple emulator modules at once. Yes you can! Just drag the modules from your core folder over to the box under when you select "Install extra modules" after they are added in this box you have to check each one off that you want installed then hit the ok button. Easy Peasy.

    Can I just use the SNES ROMS from the Goodsnes set or do I have to convert those ROMs to a different format before it will work on the SNES Classic? If I have to convert the ROMS, what tools can I use to convert?

    Thanks in advance.


    Edit: I just went to the github and saw this.

    Automatic ROM conversion to special SNES Classic Mini's format. ~75% of games are working fine. You can use RetroArch mod for problem games.

    Yeah I was just going to say that lol. the program does all the conversion for you. As long as they are not in .sfrom format they should convert fine.

    I'll probably be doing a couple more vids on how retroarch works, setting up folders, and maybe something on the bells and whistles of the program.

    Love the video btw, easy to follow. Were you planning on making a video about custom folders and adding other cores? As I'm not familiar with retroarch how are we able to modify the settings from it? Maybe I'm asking to many questions..

    I only ask as from what I read there are a few games I want to play that aren't compatible, I wanted to try out a single n64 game and maybe try out GBA.

    Last question is, I saw in the original haxchi post someone enabled the borders on retroarch can this be done with best, and other cores?

    --edit--
    Just read the previous post about you making the videos -_-. Sorry.

    Alright, I'll wait till you got all the videos out before I attempt to put rooms or other things with retroarch as I'll like to just do it all at once and be done and over with lol. And hopefully by then that compatibility list will be better.

    I'll check it out when I get home, noticed the n64 game so I'm assuming you went into that. Did you also talk about folders?

    Folders is a little more in depth and I didn't want to make the video too long, so that will be on my next one :)

    And yes I show you how to get the N64 to wrok.

    Alright I'll watch out just the same to familiarize myself with it, then I'll wait for the folders video. Quest64 is the game I'm hoping that works and maybe pokemon snap. Since I got a Wii classic controller.

    -edit-
    Just watched the video, seems pretty straight forward, final thing for me is the folders and learn how they work.

    Is there a compatibility list for n64?

    Can retroarch do Neo Geo Pocket emulation on SNES Classic? And any MAME or other arcade emulators available or in the works?

    There are two arcade emulators for the SNES Classic. FBA and FBA CPS2. It's really hit and miss so far what games will run on them. So far I've gotten 2 games to run, Strider and KoF 2002.
