But I don't need to do anything with my existing set up to use that core? 

Dont think so... Like if you play a Gameboy game you can choose 5 different cores, gmba, gbsp, beetle etc.  They just added another core.  Check out the help chat on discord, they're really friendly

Load a Gameboy ROM 

 

Turn Integer Scaling off in the video settings. 

 

Go to the Quick Menu, click shaders - turn them on - select load - find the handheld folder and load gameboy.slangp

 

It's a magical thing to behold.

Am2r crashes a lot for me. Is it ok for you?

 

Been playing for about an hour without issue. Have you been using the Quick Resume with it? Had a few games that don't work right if you flick to Home or something else in the past.

Stupid question. How do you go into Dev Mode? I have an Activate Dev Mode app. When I click on that, it says dev mode activated. Do you want yo restart and boot into dev mode?' or words to that effect. Am I going about it the right way or am I going around the houses?

Microsoft have stopped you from playing terrible old games just in time

Have you used the map? Reinstalled it today and there's a 50/50 change the game will get stuck if you use the map.

Quick question, but does anyone know how the team are doing this? It seems that they, and only they, in the world, can create and publish unsigned code to retail Xboxes.  What's their secret and why isn't everyone publishing their own works for direct download to retail consoles?

This is going to be a bummer for many people 😕

 

 

Glad to see that was a mistake on MS’s part. Any impressions for dolphin and flycast on the series s? Any compatibility issues? Can all games run at 4K?

flycast and dophin run really well (majority of games work great only ones ive had issues with are fzero and rebel strike on game cube) ive mine running at 4k for both cores no issues in fact the game have never looked better - 2 quick vids i made of sega rally 2 on flycast and mario sunshine on dolphin (unfort there only 1080p clips but both are running at 4k on the series x)

Just tried and it was okay until about the 15th flick back and forth from the map, then it locked on the map screen completely :(

Thanks, reassuring to know it's not just me. Such a shame as AM2R is fantastic.

Going to this page on the Edge browser on the Xbox takes you to the Store page entries where you can install the gaming stuff. No need to bother with the Dev bits unless you are doing something programming related maybe.

How easy is it to add games, cores and stuff to Retroarch on a Series S? I'd quite like to be able to play GT3 and GT4 with save states, which PCSX2 doesn't seem to have.

I just stuck them on an NTFS formatted USB stick and was able to access them. You can use the file explorer in RA to see all the drives/folders.

Latest retroarch update (1.10) looks great, much simpler to set up and now usb loading for all cores is working and quick! Going to update mine tonight.

 

Is that update the retail or dev mode update?

Just to offer my results after setting up the new version on Xbox

- Much quicker to install and set up then previously. Much less fiddling with settings

- Games load super quick from USB for ALL cores. This is great! Means my precious SSD space isn't being used up, and it's easier to put new games on USB and just load em straight up.

- Dreamcast seems to run better than ever before, looks ruddy gorgeous

- Only tiny fiddly thing still to do from before is that Gamecube multiple controller support is broken without editing a notepad file. The fix for that is explained here:

If I have the previous version installed, will this just overwrite it, or do I uninstall it first? 

Two choices I think: Uninstall retroarch using the ip address gateway thingy that you used to install it in the first place

OR if you change the allocated storage for dev mode to another number of Gb it clears everything that was installed and gives you a fresh start basically.

 

I used the second option because you only need 5-10Gb for it now if you use a USB stick for all the games.

I'm planning on running everything from USB as well. I'll do the second
