The emulators/retroarch port

retroarch-1.18.0 – generic multi-emulator frontend (cvsweb github mirror)


RetroArch is the reference frontend for the libretro API. Popular examples
of implementations for this API includes videogame system emulators and game
engines, but also more generalized 3D programs. These programs are
instantiated as dynamic libraries, or "libretro cores".

libretro is an API that exposes generic audio/video/input callbacks. A
frontend for libretro (such as RetroArch) handles video output, audio
output, input and application lifecycle. A libretro core written in portable
C or C++ can run seamlessly on many platforms with very little/no porting

RetroArch attempts to be small and lean, while still having all the useful
core features expected from an emulator. It is designed to be very portable
and features a gamepad-centric UI. It also has a full-featured command-line

| Running ${PKGSTEM} on OpenBSD

By default, the UI assets are not available (icons in menus), you can
download them from Retroarch:

  Main Menu -> Online Updater -> Update assets

If Retroarch does not offer a core when you try to load a content,
although the according core is installed, it is recommended to create
a playlist:

  Import content -> Manual Scan

    - choose a content directory
    - choose a default core for the files in this directory
    - Start Scan
