    Hello guys, I just discover retroarch that is suposed to be better than wii mame to play arcade games, but the download link on the website of wiibrew is dead. Where can we download the lastest release for wii ?

    Also, I am a bit confused about the romset, wich romset version I should find for retroarch ?

    Thanks :)

    I've downloaded latest stable (1.3.6) and nightly a few days ago (not at home now, can check exact version later) and none would start :( Got black screen then goes back to the Homebrew Channel... Any ideas?

    The nightly builds are broken on the Wii for some reason. Best roll back to 1.3.6 official in the mean time.

    But the 1.3.6 behaves the same (black screen, then back to HBC) :( Does it need some special IOS installed? Or some configuration files?

    That's weird, I tested 1.3.6 vanilla just fine...try deleting all config files and install a fresh folder? I don't know... roll back to 1.2.2 if need be.

    The two rom sets retroarch mainly use are Mame 2000 or Mame 2003 versions

    Tried 1.3.6 and 1.2.2, same thing :( (black screen, then back to HBC). I'm using HBC 1.1.2 (was using 1.1.0, updated to 1.1.2 and tried retroarch 1.2.2 but same thing), and loading from USB harddrive. I haven't done any configuration, just unpacked the files into /apps/retroarch-wii/ directory. Is there any configuration required?

    1.2.2 should work, though.... *sigh* that's so weird... Try loading from SD card then load games from USB...? IDK.
