    Ok, cool thanks.
    So the problem is only with Snes9x?

    I haven't checked other emulators.

    It's working again :)

    @rioray from some time a new core pop ups: Neko Project II kai, I wonder if you did include it to the recipes. I guess it uses the same system files as regular NP2? I couldn't make it work, it black screen when loading content, the same content works fine on NP2.

    No i didn't add this recipe !
    BTW this is the recipe for NP2KAI
    np2kai libretro-np2kai https://github.com/AZO234/NP2kai.git master PROJECT YES GENERIC Makefile.libretro sdl2

    You get black screen mainly because the author of this project didn't handle properly big endian system and then the code assume that wiiU is little endian.
    good example here :
    https://github.com/AZO234/NP2kai/blob/master/sdl2/libretro/compiler.h#L26

    Here is how we handle it for meowPC98 :
    https://github.com/libretro/libretro-meowPC98/blob/master/libretro/compiler.h#L24

    Should we contact him? If it's an easy fix it would be pushed via request?
    BTW what's the difference between standart and kai?

    The difference is that it's a more up to date PC98 emulator with more options/support , so it's a far better emu that the meo one.
    But it is also slow as the meo one on wii U (same base).

    I've open a PR on AZO234 repository , as it only need a little patch to works fine with wii U. (fix endianness in compiler.h and disable fmgen for wii U else freeze with black screen) .

    Hey, i've just downloaded the cheat.zip from Online Updater and i noticed there's also cheats for Nintendo DS games. But i can't find a way for playing DS games. Is there any NDS core for Retroarch of Wii U? I also saw your folder structure image to make sure it's not a dumb question and there's no folder for Nintendo DS. Are you or whoever developing this planning on giving support for it?

    Not right now, it will need dynarec for the DS to work properly.

    Merged and working :)

    However I'm getting this message when loading Rusty. IMG-20171204-WA0001.jpg
    EDIT: I change the value to
    Code:
    DIPswtch=3e f3 7b
    In the np2.cfg and did the trick, BTW Farland Story sound is working properly with kai same with Edge, it doesn't have that weird cut-off resolution :)

    I understand that you have to do it. However as I'm a "massive HID user", which is the last nightly that still has it? :P

    You always can inject DS games and play them right away from Wii U menu :)

    Quark's post is from 2017-12-01, so the nightly from 2017-11-30? Grab it while you can :P

    Phew, that was close!
    Now I wait until it disappears at the buildbot. Then I start selling SD cards with that build along with some cheap USB Snes controllers at ebay and get rich as f*ck.

    I can't for the life of me run this on my Wii U. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.

    I've installed the Retroarch channel forwarder through the Wii U USB Helper.
    I've downloaded the latest retroarch_rpx.7z from the website. I unzipped the contents of the Retroarch folder on the root of my SD card. I didn't unzip the "retroarch" folder inside wiiu/apps because supposedly the forwarder already takes care of that.

    Yet, whenever I try to open the Forwarder Channel, I get the boot screen and a glimpse of some Retroarch artwork for a split second and then it's back to the Wii U Menu.

    I honestly have no idea what to do. What am I doing wrong? I just want to play some Mega Drive games on my Wii U as well.

    I know, i even play Electroplankton on it, but the thing is, i want to play Pokémon Black 2 and White 2 but it seems that it doesn't support DSi Enhanced games yet, that's why i am asking.

    Insert the SD card into your PC, hit the WINDOWS key, type cmd and hit enter.
    In cmd type in the letter of your SD card (for example e:) and hit enter.
    Now that you're at the root of your SD card, type the following and hit enter:
    Code:
    dir /S /B > sd.txt
    
    Then post what's in that generated file here inside spoiler and code tags.

    There's *quite* a lot of stuff here, I might add. Sorry about that! Couldn't post the message because it exceeds the limit of characters, so I uploaded the .txt instead.

    I was wondering...does scan directory work on WiiUs retroarch? Will it automatically create playlists?
