    I didn't think it had to do with deleting wiiu from the SD, but from the temporary folder you unzipped the distro to.

    Any chances to have BSNES Mercury to compile for wiiu?
    Mainly to see how well does the WiiU the Super Game Boy emulation.

    The wiiu retroarch core mgba already emulates Super Game Boy perfectly.

    Bsnes on top of GB would only have a huge impact on performance.

    Bsnes is too demanding, just use mGBA.

    mGBA does some SGB features perfectly, but is more like GBC emulation with SGB enhancement goodies than true SGB emulation. True SGB emulation is GB emulation under SNES emulation in order to have all the features of an actual SGB (pretty sick if you ask me). In 2018 BSNES/Higan is still the only emu which does SGB emulation properly. See how the SNESC does SGB emulation , far from perfect but I'm sure that the U can do it way better :)

    Bsnes also has a helluva lot higher system requirements too, Wii U can't emulate Bsnes at full speed or even that well. Better off porting it to Switch.

    Can't handle with the main BSNES core, but perhaps can with bsnes-mercury-performance core :)

    Not gonna hold my breath, Snes9x is good for Wii U, Bsnes would only affect like less than five games at most.

    Bsnes only affects like, half a dozen games at most (ooh, scaline based rendering versus dot based rendering, big whoop). Snes9x is more than good enough.

    In all honesty, and as a romhacker myself, bsnes is only good for debugging and hack making, nothing else.
    You could even swap it for Snes9x Debugger, so really having bsnes in there is only for those accuracy hungry, but take into consideration that it is very resource heavy, not worth it agains standalone Snes9x for consoles imo.

    Snes9x 1.54 on Wii U is the best Snes emulator, the fact it runs perfectly says a lot, and it's fairly accurate for what it is, second only to Higan. Like what was said before, Higan/Bsnes is far too much for the Wii U's CPU.

    1) All good so far except the icons in Retroarch on the WiiU appear corrupt - looks like snow on an out of tune TV. Is this something I can fix?
    2) Can I use samples for MAME (e.g. for sound in old games like Space Panic) in Retroarch? Any particular Mame version I should use?
    3) Can I copy the ROMS to my USB hard drive where I installed RetroArch? I installed it using Wup Installer GX2

    1) You need to download the Assets for the icons to display properly. You can download them from the Buildbot site or from the in-app downloader.
    2) i think the newest core called Mame 2003 Plus addresses some of the issues with the sound samples for some arcade games (DK comes to mind) Try that one out.
    3) Sure, you can use the roms from your HDD, simply copy them to the corresponding drive where your RetroArch files are and that should be it.

    Thanks ShadowOne333! Will give those a try. For 3) I was under the impression that the hard drive was Wii U formatted and I couldn't connect it to PC. I may be wrong.

    If it is WiiU formatted, you cannot use it for RetroArch, you'd have to use an SD and grab the roms from there.
