    the performance of the interface has improved again in the version of 11-01-2017, but the reaction until it comes to the creation of savestates still takes very long (psxrearmed) and retroarch is still crashing under the use of the xmb menu driver.

    29th nightly seemed to have issues with slow loading.

    Nightlies since launch more quickly.

    I'm running B9S 1.3 and Luma3DS 8.1.1, I'm using the nightly build from 11/3/17 (haven't bothered updating to the most recent). I've tried old version and new, and tried changing the menu driver (I like rgui better anyway). I'm trying to run PCSX, and have installed that .cia and have copied the retroarch folder over to the root of my SD card. When I load into PCSX, I can navigate and pick stuff just fine but as soon as I load content (.cue files, also tried just running the bios .bin) it crashes and I have to reboot. Any ideas?

    I haven't updated in a while because every version I've tried in the past year or so was unstable.
    What's the best build these days?

    Are you using the correct bios-file ? It should be something like scph55xx.bin depending on the region. I suggest to convert your isos into the pbp format. The advantage: only one file, smaller size and better performance. You can find the app for converting your files in my post on page 315

    scph5500.bin is for Japan, scph5501.bin is for USA and scph5502.bin is for Europe
    Just copy the bios-files to /retroarch/cores/system/ . The system-folder must be created by yourself.

    for information:
    The nightly release of the cia-version from 05.11.2017 contains no cias except the fronted retroarch.cia

    Last night I downloaded the nightly version from 11/4/2017 and tried some new roms and got it working. I'm confused by this statement though, I just downloaded the cia version, and there is a cia folder with a cia file (frontend) for every emulator (I only care about pcsx so that's the only one I've installed) is that what you meant? There is no retroarch.cia in the files I downloaded.

    Weird because there is and has always been the retroarch.cia that forwards you to the last core you used.

    That's right, but retroach.cia is just a forwarder for already installed cores, isn't it? In the last nightlies since 11-05-2017, there is only the forwarder in the cia-folder, but not the actual needed cores...at least in the 3ds version of retroarch. For example, the PS Vita version looks different again. There is a single file with all cores integrated. As far as I am aware, the forwarder has only existed since the introduction of the xmb menu.

    This only applies to nightlies since 11-05-2017. If you only use pcsxrearmed, the forwarder (retroach.cia) makes no sense. If you have multiple cores installed, you can use the forwarder to manage all installed cores with this one application. But in the cia folder of the nightlies since 11-05-2017, there is no core (p.e. pcsxrearmed.cia) present, except the forwarder (retroarch.cia)

    1. There's no reason not to use CIA homebrew.
    2. If you are on an old3DS those emulators will not work regardless of 3dsx or CIA, the O3DS doesn't have enough RAM.

    I can absolutely, positively, 100% guarantee you that your friend didn't get banned because he used .cia emulators. He may have gotten banned, but that wasn't the reason. He was most likely playing a game online that hadn't come out officially yet. That, or cheating.

    Actually no you can't. We don't know at 100% all the reasons that trigger a ban. Some are more obvious than other but that's all you can tell.
    Not using a cia that couldn't pass for an official one might be paranoia but it makes sense.

    Hi guyz,

    I wonder, i any onther emulator on the level of Pico Drive in terms of visual quality ?
    Picodrive looks superb on my N3DS, fully scaled to 4:3 and pixels are clear. But every other emulator i tried is using some sort of bilinear filtering when stretched to 4:3 full screen.

    A strange thing happened, they removed all the launchers whose filename begin with the words after “R” except retroarch.
    I hope it is just a accident......[​IMG]

    I'm having an issue,
    I have my new 3DS (fw 11.6) hacked via Luma3DS, I installed every single CIA via FBI, copied the retroarch folder into the root directoy of the SD card.
    Now every single core had its own launcher in the menu (is that supposed to happen?) So I unwrapped every single one of them.
    Then I started retroarch through the main thingy (libretro), but all I'm getting after the 3DS logo is a black screen, and the system freezes.

    How am I'm supposed to get into the retroarch menu or do I have to start it through the single cores? Because this doesn't work either.
    what am I'm doing wrong?
