    Reminder there is NO alternative for the features and customization of RetroArch, and you WILL be missing out if you get filtered and can't figure it out (you only need to learn it once; RetroArch is same across all devices/OS).

    People use RetroArch for:
    >the ability to save unique bindings/core settings/video settings/shaders for each core/game; literally anything at all you can change in RetroArch, you can save on a per-game basis
    >better audio/video sync, input latency, and audio latency than standalone emulators
    >huge selection of shaders and filters, and the ability to tweak all parameters of these shaders
    >lossless recording at exact resolution and refresh-rate for every core/game (vastly superior to OBS); also input recording implemented for every single core
    >rollback netplay for worldwide co-op or PvP games
    >cores that are up-to-date with standalone and you can update all of your cores with a single click
    >some cores that are only on RetroArch or are more up-to-date on RetroArch
    >dozens of hotkeys that you can bind however you want and remain consistent for each game/core (or you can have unique hotkeys just for one game/core)
    >VRR, BFI, and sync to exact framerate (to play games at the exact framerate of a game, e.g 54fps for Raiden FJ, or 61.68fps for TGM)
    >top-notch CRT support with CRT Switchres
    >1000 save states for every game with screenshot previews and undo save state/undo load state
    >MAME core has save state support, rewind, & run-ahead for ALL games, even those with no save state support in MAME standalone
    >RetroAchievements support
    >UI and settings layout is consistent for every core so you don't have to learn dozens of different standalone UI layouts
    There is no reason to use anything else for Gen 5 or earlier (plus GBA, DS, and Dreamcast).

      That might actually be what it takes for me to try it for the first time. It's been bugging me non-stop that I haven't yet found a way to record without some kind of blur.
      But that wouldn't help me if I wanted clean footage of pixel art games run via executable on PC. So that's still gonna be a pain.

        retroarch uses ffmpeg so there might be some way to use ffmpeg to do that. OBS is trash for that purpose, since it doesn't record at native res or refresh rate and also records background audio (I know there is some pain in the ass workaround for that though)

        it took some tinkering, but I think every core except a few like PS2, GCN, and N64 support lossless. Also Saturn has some really annoying bug where the audio goes slightly off-sync as the recording goes on (tried every fix, nothing works), I haven't seen that in any other core though and I've tried basically all of them.

        But every single core even GCN/PS2 support input recording, which is basically like how MAME implements it, but automatically increments and you can start, stop, and playback at any time, and I've never seen it desync as long as you aren't messing around with rewinds.

          There isn't, you have to go into the menu every single time you want to change it which makes some games very tedious, or awkward if you just grit it, to play on retroarch.

          It definitely does make sense, MAME has a much more robust autofire implementation than RetroArch, along with all the other plugins that MAME offers.

          MAME core functions identical to standalone MAME, just with more save state slots, save state previews, save state undo, load state undo, rewind, run-ahead, support for removed games (such as SDOJ and Akai Katana), and better lossless recording and input recording (using RetroArch's implementation)

              There is a ton of different plugins, plus slider controls, BIOS, plus MAME has more robust rebinding (RetroArch won't let you assign one button to do different outputs).

              It would just be really cumbersome when you can just use MAME's OSD with no issues.

        lmao what? It functions the same as standalone MAME, you probably are just using the most recent MAMEcore version with an old romset, which is exactly what would happen if you used the latest version of standalone MAME.

        Either get an updated romset, or just go to libretro buildbot and get an older version of MAMEcore, or you may need to use one of the legacy MAME cores depending on how old your romset is.

    Back in the fall of 2022 when I returned to college to change careers, due to Covid fricking my previous one of twelve years, I had to help my 50 year old teacher explain what files and folders are to over thirty 17-19 year olds who were fresh out of high school with Common Core educations. But they were like sponges, just nodding and talking like agreeable Californians who aren't actually retaining anything being said despite still absorbing the information somewhat. It was a three week fricking process of reminding the class and the teacher and I going from student to student to show them files on their computer and then folders on their computer.

    The only thing to shock me harder was how for our Global Citizenship class, they both had never heard of the whole pronoun bullshit AND just willy-nilly accepted literally anything the professor claimed about pronoun importance without fricking question. Gen Z as a whole fricking struggles with paying attention but will happily, eventually, learn anything that is seemingly coming from a point of authority as gospel in stone fact. I made my entire program uncomfortable because I, the only openly bi guy let alone gay guy, challenged the Global Citizenship professor on the pronoun bullshit. Literally just because I disagreed with a teacher and teachers are always right, according to Gen Z. Holy fricking shit, the iPad-riddled lemmings are going to collapse society. And they're the ones who are supposed to be responsible for wiping my ass when I retire when they can't even wipe their own, let alone fricking UNZIP A FILE TO THE DESIRED FOLDER.

            TwinAphex/SquarePusher and Stenzek had a falling out. You see the RA devs don't actually code emulators. They don't know dick about it. Libretro is a virtualization program which is like a compatibility layer for running programs under any OS. The cores are hackjobs that are slapped together and if something goes wrong the RA devs have to beg the standalone devs to come and fix stuff for them Without compensation, of course. Unless you treat verbal abuse and demands as compensation. Stenzek is some kind of hyper-autist and is working on fixing a lot of emulator problems and getting real work done. So when the guy who wrote the worlds most bloated and unintuitive UI starts yelling at you like he's your employer, you tell him to frick off. Now he's fixed Dolphin and is working on making RPCS3 and PSCX2 great.

                Pretty much. If the standalone devs don't fix issues fast enough he goes into forums and discords and starts screaming at people. He's already persona non grata on most of the internet. That's why he comes here instead of Reddit where his name could carry weight. Though the only weight it carries is the weight of 500 lbs of excrement.

    This moronic software kept me away from emulation for years because I thought that it was needlessly complicated and unfriendly to users. Turns out that when I started downloading emulators and using them standalone to configure inputs, shaders for each of them to my wishes, I had a way better experience. Why the frick would anyone use a the moronic retroarch frontend instead of mGBA, melonDS, Mesen or Snes9x is beyond me.

      Because RetroArch has literally all of those cores identical to standalone but with better audio/video sync, lower input lag, and numerous additional features and customization options?

      This is a pretty funny argument. Retroarch is supposedly ‘needlessly complicated and unfriendly to users’ but you having to use tons of external programs to even get shaders working on a standalone like mgba is ‘easy’ and ‘convenient’. Or melonds. Because none of them have the same shader support builtin or all these features.

      Its just drive by piling on isnt it?

                I can see and understand your points, and I see the person you are arguing with and their points, I'm just going to chime in, personally I like certain standalone emulators for specific games/systems, I like retroarch for others (genesis, game gear, snes, nes, etc mainly older systems)
                The modern systems PCSX2 with the new front-end is absolutely awesome. I run most of my games on Steam Deck because it's fantastic for emulation, I've managed to get quite a few PS3 titles working with RPCS3 on it and running 60fps (Ratchet and Clank, Gravity Crash, Little Big Planet 3, Gran Turismo 5 v1.02), and honestly I don't get why they're pushing RA so hard, yeah it's a fine emulation software with a large feature set, but it's not the ONLY option, there will always be pros/cons for each.

          No it doesnt, i just tried the latest windows build. Unless you are talking about bogstandard stuff like bilinear filtering which is literally nothing

          Even if it did have a bunch of builtin shaders (which i see no evidence of) , it doesnt even come close to 1% of the shader capabilities of retroarch

          I mean you can mindlessly hate on it all you want but at least be honest. Reshade doesnt come close to retroarchs shader capabilities either bte

    I just want something I can drag and drop into, MAYBE set a couple things up before doing that. Yes, call me a moron, a boomer, whatever helps you sleep. I don't care time or energy to fiddle with 100000 settings just to play fricking Golden Sun.

    In every discussion about emulation always comes a rabid retroarchgay and start preaching the same crap:
    >HAVE YOU TRIED RETROARCH?!
    >RETROARCH IS BETTER?
    >YOU LIKE THAT EMULTOR? RETROARCH CAN DO THAT AND MORE!
    >MUH FILTERS!
    >NO STOP USING OTHER EMULATOR OR I'LL CRY!
    What is it about RetroArch that turned it's users into cultists?

    I love this dude. I always come into this thread to frick with him.
    Every time. You gotta use RA because it's easier. Except that it's also harder which is why you got filtered. But it's easier. Except when it's harder and it filtered you. You're stupid to not use RA, but you're stupid if you can't figure it out.

      Those two statements aren't contradictory. It's fairly basic to learn if you put a modicum of time in and have an IQ above 80. If you're an ADHD zoomer or a low-functioning moron, then it's not for you.

      Tbh the whole difficulty discussion has become a big meme

      Some have no issue with it while others do

      Its never going to appeal to everyone and that is fine, it is a free program.

      All these wars surrounding it are gay and disingenuous though. Ye maybe some of the pro ppl might engage in counterproductive arguing but the discord troony raids arguing against it are just as bad

    Are there any custom front ends for Retro Arch with a better ui? I like it, but it feels as if someone with the tism designed the menus.

    I'm in my late thirties and this shit is ass compared to just using individual emulators.
