    It's finally here! RetroArch on Wii U! This will be major, especially to be able to play the games using the gamepad for portability!

    Why make a new thread to hype someone else's work? Let Quark release it when it's done.

    Wow, this is big enough for a thread? Awesome.
    Figured I may as well quote this here, it's a bit of a progress report (the GH readme is a bit outdated)

    You need Dimok's portlibs AFAIK. Grab `em here, put them in DevKitPPC/portlibs. Fairly sure that should fix any issues.

    Although it's worth noting that you won't get very far once it is compiled - I haven't gotten around to uploading Stella.elf yet.

    That's because you don't have Stella.elf on your SD card. I'll upload that when I get the chance (probably tomorrow)

    P. S What did you have to do to fix the build?

    Time to follow this closer! :D
    I peeked at the GitHub for this project every now and then, but now with this thread made hopefully it'll catch more attention and hopefully a lot more help. :)

    Stella.elf is my specially compiled version of stella, the libretro core I picked for testing. I quickly threw it on dropbox here since I won't be able to get at GitHub for a little while. Just throw it on the root of your SD card and UDynLoad should get to work. (error 0 = no error at all!). Once you see Core func = whatever (0xE0008ish? not 0x00000000!) hit the home button to try running it. You should get 0x1 back. If you do, hit home again to quit to HBL (I advise not turning off the console before quitting to HBL, it screws with BATs and will often require you to unplug it for a little before HBL will launch again)

    Just dropping by to say how great it is to see this updated every week or so. :D
    I saw that the ReadMe has been updated too a couple of days back along with some more code changes.

    It's very interesting to see this being developed. :)

    I'm actually dying over here

    In other news, I think the reason I'm having trouble is some kind of programming bug in stella (libretro core). It tries to search through a list without ever putting anything in it. Well, at least I think that's the issue. I'm downloading a proper RA build now to see if that changes anything.

    URetro is now listed as an official frontend?
    Sweet. :P

    In anyway, I really wish you the vest of luck with your upcoming tests!
