    So I'm testing the GxGeo version with my Wii U pro controller and it works fantastically. However, when I first boot into the emulator, I am unable to use the Wii U pro controller to set the load device (SD or USB), none of the buttons work, so I have to desync the Pro controller, and then connect a Wiimote so it takes the 1st player slot and hit 1 in order to select SD card. Then I desyn the Wiimote, and am able to reconnect my Pro controller to player 1. This is needlessly tedious. @Wiimpathy Is there a way this can be fixed so that hitting A on the player 1 Wii U pro controller can tell GxGeo to load the roms from the SD card at boot? This would really be all I need to make this the ideal way to load Neo Geo roms for me.

    Wow, you're actually the first to ask about Gxgeo. The retroarch core has much more options(too much?) and improvements.
    I haven't the Wii U controller and no experience with this. No promise, I'll look what I can do if I have time and motivation.

    I appreciate it, there are various reasons that i don't use retroarch when at all possible (though I will indeed use retroarch when no other emulators are available or some key features I need aren't available on alternative emulators), chief among them being that it takes longer to load up and each game takes longer to boot. GxGeo may not look flashy in its UI, but its just a quicker experience to load games all around and I don't notice any performance issues. It would really make my day if you could fix that one thing about it. Thanks for at least looking into it.

    Yeah, I get it about retroarch's GUI etc. Regarding loading times it's not true for all games though.
    And I said in the 1st post, it's buggy and some games might not work.

    Anyway, if you really prefer this stuff, a boot.dol is attached in this post. It's only recompiled with R29-1 and WPAD_CLASSIC_BUTTON_A added in main.c.
    If it's working that's great, if not too bad but I won't do more for this obsolete homebrew, hope you understand.

    Aw snap, that did it!

    Perhaps you're right that some games don't load quicker or have errors in GxGeo, but the games I'm interested don't seem to. So this really is perfect, I'm very grateful you took the time to look into this, even if you believe it to be obsolete. You are the man!

    Will you make that source available too, @Wiimpathy? I think it's pretty cool we get a last update for that old school no-nonsense load-and-play Neo Geo emulator! B-)

    Thanks as always. :yaywii:

    It's a long shot and yes I know this only relates to the Wii and you don't want to touch these obsolete homebrew, how hard would it be to add GamePad support to GxGeo using the following info from FIX94's GamePad patch HERE?

    I know there is a few out there who are using GxGeo vWii forwarder on the WiiU who would love to have GamePad support for this obsolete homebrew emulator. Just eliminates the need for a Wii Remote for WiiU owners who wish to play NeoGeo games on the GamePad.

    Worth a shot :)

    Hey @Wiimpathy I'm very late to your party but I'd just like to say thank you very much for the large Neo game support. Last night when everyone went to bed I sat down and followed your instructions, made a few mistakes, brushed up on my rereading skills and soon after was playing Metal Slug X on 240P on my CRT. Thanks man

    Can play up to Metal Slug 5, KOF 2003, SNK vs CAPCOM PLUS (if you want to use Martian or Zero) and Samurai Shodown 5 Special.

    Hello teachers!!
    Someone who can help me please, I am very confused

    I try to run the cps3 core using wiiflow lite 5.4 but do not read the retroarch.cfg file from my usb, just create your folders and your configuration file on the sd card.

    My question is if by chance will there be an alternative for this core to read only the files that I have configured in the usb? since I do not want to create conflicts when detecting the cache folder when I run a game

    P.D with the other cores I have not had any problems, they run very well with this version of wiiflow..

    There is a download link for the CPS3 Street Fighter games on Youtube.
    You only have to unzip and copy the files to your sd card!
