This is an odd question,

But it's a needed one, Why are they called .cia's?
Is it the official extension/name for them or was it made by the community?

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    why couldnt you do it before? It just not install?
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Exactly
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Tried downloading it from the Playstore and from an APK from the oficial website
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    It didnt work either way
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Theres just not enough storage

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    You make sure turn on allow "unknown sources" to be installed? And try all 3 versions for android?
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Yea it takes if I remember like 300mb+
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Yes I tried all 3 versions and yes I turned that on

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    you could get a version with no cores installed, be small, then install only few cores. But if you low on storage on the stick, I wouldnt bother with retroarch, just install the stand alone emulators you want
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:

    does that gaming stick have a game/play store to download apps, it may have a retroarch in there to get
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    It has the Google play store
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    there you go then, get it from there, its free
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    I downloaded it from there like thrice and it never worked
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    I already told you
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I don't know then, maybe that stick just not compatible. Just use stand alone emulators, like Nestopia, Snes9x EX,etc
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    *sigh* alright
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Though most Android emulators don't have retroachievements or netplay
