    DISCLAIMER: I'm not the creator of this emulator, all credits goes to libRetro team ( http://www.libretro.com/ ). I just compiler latest commit of their Github repository.

    Here you can find some Retroarch build with ported libretro cores:

    14/04/15: [MD/SG/SMS/GG/MDCD] Retroarch Genesis Plus GX v.1.7.4 (3DSX): http://rinnegatamante.netsons.org/retroarch_genesis.rar
    14/04/15: [GBA] Retroarch gPSP 0.9.1 (3DSX): http://rinnegatamante.netsons.org/retroarch_gpsp.rar
    14/04/15: [GBC] Retroarch Gambatte 0.5.0 (3DS, CIA, 3DSX): http://rinnegatamante.netsons.org/retroarch_gambatte.rar

    NOTE: gPSP and Genesis Plus GX [if you want to start MegaDrive CD titles] require BIOS file.

    I suggest to disable Audio from Driver and Audio options cause it seems to make unstable emulator causing random freezes.

    Tried to make a multicore launcher but seems cores are not correctly recognized for now.

    Are the Retroarch guys taking this seriously or is it just a pet project sort of thing?

    Has anyone tried running this as CIA with several cores that could give some feedback for performance?

    Running either GB or GBA (3dsx) crashed to the home menu and asked to restart the system. Might be a success rate thing on this one.

    For my tests, gPSP always crashes, Genesis freezes with Mickey Mouse Timeless Adventures and Contra and Dragon Ball Z Legendary Superwarriors runs fullspeed with Gambatte.
    All tests done with audio disabled.

    I found out what was making the 3dsx crash:

    When it initializes, it gets stuck parsing the retroarch.cfg in sdmc:retroarch/. Since there is no cfg to be found, the emulators crash.

    That's weird. I'll keep checking.

    EDIT: Disregard my posts. Not working on N3DS, but it does work on O3DS

    Cool! Hopefully the Megadrive/Genesis part eventually will work well :)

    Do GBA games run without lag?

    It crashes, and I doubt it would be any different from CitrAGB in interpreter mode since we both base our stuff on gpsp. Unless they actually try to pull from ARM11 kernel.

    Maybe make a folder for the 3DSX version...? I made my own and put it in, but it wont show up in the homebrew launcher.

    I said this on the other thread but it seems like the new one made it invisible:
    gpsp crashes because it is missing the bios, you need to save it as sdmc:/retroarch/cores/system/gba_bios.bin

    also disable vsync, since it runs under 60fps and vsync will only hurt it more.
