    This is a native PS4 port of RetroArch. It is based off v1.8.1.
    Only a handful of cores are ported for now but more will come at a later date!

    You will need a jailbroken PS4 running 5.05 fw to install and use this port.

    Ported cores list:


    Download

    RetroArch_PS4_r1: mega.nz/#!mRgTnAzI!3cXPgqXYltkv1aIzgKOqqgHdlr9u-fFIq-q2CzhnFH0
    RetroArch_PS4_r2: mega.nz/#!mN5nxKLa!iqtz1OHD28DnwYpWnZKTcB29Eq_QTRd3olX_7iD3S6o

    Notes:
    1. Games can either be loaded from hdd or usb.
    2. The RetroArch system folder is located in /data/retroarch/system. Any necessary bios files need to be placed there.
    3. There is a small bug where sometimes games won't load after closing it. If this happens, try re-loading the core and load the game again.
    4. Parallel N64 emulator seems to run fastest with rice gfx plugin in. Use mupen64plus for best N64 emulation performance
    5. Shaders should be working. Try loading them from usb if you're experiencing issues and don't forget to press apply after loading.
    6. Launching games from playlists should now be working in r2.
    7. Use Hen version 2.1.1 or later

    Source will be pushed to main branch eventually but will be slow to ensure nothing breaks!

    Aknowledgments/Thanks

    - Frangarcj for the initial RetroArch PS4 port
    - Big Boss for liborbis

    Do I need the internet to download cores like on PC version I tried some time ago or cores already come with the pkg file?

    Tried snes and it worked fine. Tried N64 and it ran really really slow(like 1fps). I'll try and work out how to change the config and do some more tests.

    N64 was real slow. I tried changing some settings but made it crash. Ps1 is nice except the picture quality. Also mega drive/snes and gba work. Desmume is slow but loads. All used on external usb hd. Only downside atm is playlists dont seem to want to show and only 1 controller atm but Nice to see this working

    Any idea why parallel is used instead of mupen64 plus? Thought the performance was better for mupen?

    Thanks ... Actually, I already knew that but why not dolphin emu core for PS4 with those lists ? Doesn't makes sense.

    The PS4 supports OpenGL ES2. Dolphin requires OpenGL 3.0 or higher if I'm not mistaken.

    It's using sort of a mix currently (flatz stubs + liborbis) and took some work to make it independent of orbislink. I'd like to clean it up a bit before merging. Thanks!

    Parallel worked right off the bat with little to no debug needed. Mupen64 seems to crash when launching a game but hoping to get it working at some point.
