    After teasing some of their upcoming features, the Libretro team has just released their latest stable build of RetroArch: 1.7.8. This is a sizable update for the emulator frontend, offering many new changes and functions such as an "AI Service" which has a Speech Mode that can automatically parse text onscreen into speech, or an Image Mode that quickly pauses your game to overlay machine translated text from one language to another. Also new to this update is the RetroArch Disc Project, allowing for CD-ROM support so that players can experience their original game discs right through RetroArch's supported cores, or dump them into a bin/cue format.

    Other, smaller additions, like touchscreen lightgun controls for mobile, on-demand thumbnail downloading, enhanced core options, and more, have been added as well.

    A full changelog is available below:

    With emulation and language translation improving at this rate soon we aren't going to need translation patches at all

    It's neat they're adding features but I prefer they tackle bugs before introducing new ones. Oh well, good stuff Libretro.

    Finally, ...
    • SWITCH: Fix splitting and joining of joycon controllers. Before this fix, splitting and joining of joycons only ever worked sporadically

    I'm super excited for this feature (even if it's a bit wonky with the translation)

    Neato! I had to tell myself not to go after every single nightly build of retroarch for Switch, but this is a good reason to update again.

    Dude... It was a joke. Maybe you really needed the "/jk" or what. You need to relax, this is internet. People make jokes.

    That URL should be fixed now.

    It's been nothing but buildbot issues for us yet again.

    what's the right way to update this on a vita?
    can i just install the vpk?
    do i have to delete stuff and backup saves etc first?

    can i just overwrite the contents of retroarch_data?

    edit: oh, i just realized the vpk is like 200kb, it's probably not how it should be.
