[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [7] How to add PS3 game on Retrobat ?



To add a PS3 game, in first you must have configured the RPCS3 emulator located in the "\emulators\rpcs3" folder.

Tutorials to configure it abound on the net to install the PS3 firmware (legally available HERE) and games, please do not ask for links for these files... Mad

You must install your games, in the \emulators\rpcs3\dev_hdd0\disc folder for games in disk format, and \emulators\rpcs3\dev_hdd0\game for dematerialized games.
And once the emulator is configured and you have added your games from the "Install package" or/and "Add games" menu of the emulator, AND THEY WORK DIRECTLY FROM THE EMULATOR, run BatGui.exe which is located at the root of your Retrobat installation folder.

Go to the tab "M3u contructor"

Click on "Scan"

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Cayx2gr



Then you should see appear on the right column, the list of your PS3 games that you have previously installed on the RPCS3 emulator:

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] MwUsxqN

Check the boxes games you want to add, then give them a name instead of "Click here to edit game name" (no special characters)
Then click on "Generate M3U"


The "M3u Contructor" will automatically generate .m3u files directly in the "\roms\ps3" folder:


[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] ERf25vW

You can now launch your PS3 games from RetroBat! affraid


PS: Just one last thing, remember to check these boxes in the settings of the RPCS3 emulator.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [9] How and why to deactivate the automatic configuration of controllers ?


In some cases, it could be possible that your controller is not compatible with the controller auto configuration system. This system allow you to configure your controllers in EmulationStation and it will be also configured for RetroArch and for some other emulators available in RetroBat (RetroArch, Dolphin...).

If your controller is concerned, then you need to disable the auto configuration and configure manually the inputs for earch emulators.


( This is why we recommend using controllers that work in X-input. You can test your controller to find out if it's X-input compatible, by going to this SITE. In case your controller is not X-input compatible, and if you are having difficulty, you can use the X360ce v4.XX application which allows you to pass your controller off as an Xbox 360 controller.)


Open the main menu and go to SYSTEM SETTINGS
[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] 17ctYnr


then DEVELOPER
[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] 2EwAhuH


and uncheck AUTOCONFIGURE EMULATORS CONTROLLERS.
[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] YRAJB9i


Then go to the RETROBAT menu to configure each emulator.
[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] VwiV52T


For some emulators or game engines (OpenBOR) you will need to go directly in their respective folders, presents in the "./emulators" folder.

Since version 4.0 of Retrobat, it's possible to deactivate the auto-configuration of the controllers only on a particular system or game.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [10] What does "AUTO" correspond in the emulators list ?

When you want to choose a different emulator or core to run your games, (see point n° 5 ) in the list there is "AUTO"

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] LNZbQJM

AUTO corresponds to the 1st of the list of cores/emulators.

In the case of the example above, AUTO therefore corresponds to "ANGLE / DOLPHIN"

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [12] How to access the Retroarch menu?

For whatever reason, you may need to access the Retroarch menu (for systems that use Retroarch ... Laughing ), mostly to change settings.

For example , to create controller configuration for a specific game or system.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] C7CD9BJ


- From the RetroBat configuration menu in the systems list.

Or by launching a game from Retrobat, and when the game is running you have different ways to access the Retroarch menu:

- In game, with the F1 key (ONLY if no controller is connected.)

- In game, with a controller, use hotkey + A if you are using Nintendo controllers (like Snes, Wi , WiiU and Switch gamepads) or B if you are usine Xbox controllers and ROUND if you are using Playstation controllers.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [13] How do I create a specific controller configuration in Retroarch ?

If the configuration of the buttons does not suit you for a game or a system managed by Retroarch, it's possible to make a specific one.

As explained in question n°12, access the menu of Retroarch then select " QUICK MENU "

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] HiJ66mI

- Then, further down in the QUICK MENU list, you will find " Controls "

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] 8jpwjmZ

In this menu you can configure several controllers, and then assign the new configuration by saving either:


  • For the current game only.
  • For games found in the same folder as the current game.
  • For the current Core ( /!\ be careful ! many systems can use the same Core)



[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] K78mZCY

This new configuration is used at the time the game is running and take the priority over the default configuration of Retroarch.[/b]

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [15] Why there is sound on EmulationStation but not in games ?


You have just installed Retrobat, you have your roms in the corresponding folders, the sound is present in the game selection interface (EmulationStation),
but when you launch a game managed by a Retroarch Core, there is no sound. wtf??  Crying or Very sad

There's a chance that you haven't DirectX installed properly.

Download and install it HERE .


If after the installation, you still have no sound, as explained in question n° 12, go to the Retroarch menu and go to the "Audio" menu

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] WbSS18w



- Then in "Output"

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] ASvuG8p



- Then in "Audio"

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] ZpPE5pO


- Then you can test different audio drivers one by one, until you find the right one when you get sound during games. The "dsound" driver usually works fine.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Pn0sF6b

Or, you can choose Dsound on BatGui.exe:

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [18] How to add XBLA games (XBOX360) on Retrobat?

Xbox360 XBLA games (XBox Live Arcade) are presented in the form of a succession of several folders, which end in a file that has no extension.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Crn5h50

On this example, the XBLA game, Castlevania Symphony of the Night, you can see the path: "CastlevaniaSymphonyoftheNight\58410847\000D0000"

Which leads to the game file named "9F2DAA064D494AA82B43B65362C59E9B89A88F8F58"

So that Retrobat can launch the game, you must create a *.m3u file to be placed at the root of the "\roms\xbox360" folder.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Tyvahms

Click on "Scan"

And BatGui will detect all the games present in your "\roms\xbox360" folder:

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] SkHWrT7

Check the box of the game(s) you want to add, rename it if necessary, and click on "Generate M3U" and the .m3u file will be
automatically created and placed in the "\roms\xbox360" folder.


It will then be visible in the Retrobat interface.

Thumb up

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [19] How to select a core or a standalone emulator for a game?

Some games on the same system work better with a particular emulator or core, and you want a particular game to be associated with that emulator or core.

For example, you have a MAME game, which runs best with the "MAME 2003 plus" core, but all of your other MAME games work well with the "MAME" core.

So, for this game in particular, you want to choose the MAME 2003 plus core.


Go to the game concerned, long press the "X" key on your keyboard or "[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] YKPSkFl" on your controller.


- A menu opens:
[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Gsvsnnc
( /!\ the menu may be different depending on the version of EmulationStation you are using).





- Select "ADVANCED GAME CONFIGURATION"
[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] 1N6SfgO


And on the EMULATOR line, select the core or the emulator that interests you and validate.
[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] MzQmhpK
( /!\ the list may be different depending on the version of Retrobat you are using).



Then do RETURN several times, and start the game.

You must place the rom file in .zip format in the same folder as other Game & Watch games: "\roms\gameandwatch"

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] ALEygG9


And the artwork files which have exactly the same name as the roms (also .zip format), must be placed in the "\bios\mame\artwork" folder.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] H39e9W9

Then launch Retrobat and go to the Game & Watch system:

Hold the LAUNCH button until the following menu appears and choose "ADVANCED GAME OPTION":

And on the "EMULATORS" menu select "LIBRETRO / MAME"

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [26]How to select video driver?

- How to change video drivers?

Retrobat runs on Windows, not everyone has the same Windows (7, 8, 8.1 or 10 ...). and unlike other distributions that run on a Raspberri Pi (for example), not everyone has the same hardware (processor, graphics card, ram etc.)

On some systems, your hardware may not be compatible with the basic video driver.

This is often the case with the Flycast core, which manages the Dreamcast, Naomi and Atomiswave games, so the games do not launch.

Note that other systems may be affected.


On a basic installation (Retrobat v4) the video driver is set to "Vulkan"

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] 1GS75SU
From BatGui.exe you can select another default video driver for Retroarch cores.



To choose another, from the "EmulationStation" interface, on a particular system, go to:


MAIN MENU -> GAME SETTINGS

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] GcM6Vmf

and


ADVANCED SYSTEM CONFIGURATION

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] 9kovq2H


- Select the system you want to modify:

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Tc2nub9



- And on the "VIDEO DRIVER" line
Select another driver.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] 14YC3tc

Then try to start a game.
If it still does not launch, try another video driver until your game starts.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [28] I have a message when launching Retrobat about UAC, why?

You try to run Retrobat.exe but you get this message:

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] BtCpUnr


User Account Control (UAC) is a protection mechanism introduced on Windows since Windows Vista.

Although not recommended, you can completely disable UAC on your computer at your own risk.


It may be necessary to deactivate it, for reasons of comfort, to avoid having a confirmation request on certain games that require higher privileges to work, for example: Mario Kart DX on the Teknoparrot system.

This is why we advise you to deactivate it only if your PC is not connected to the internet.

But if you get this message, it's not because you have UAC disabled, but because you are trying to run Retrobat.exe in administrator mode.

Either you right-clicked on Retrobat.exe and you chose "[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] GA0CdsgRun as administrator" or you are logged in under Windows on a "Super administrator" account, which automatically launches all applications as administrator.

For obvious security reasons, we do not allow Retrobat to run as an administrator.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [30] How to add SWITCH, Yuzu and RyujinX emulators?

To add the Nintendo Switch emulators, "Yuzu" and "RyujinX", which are not included in Retrobat, you must download these emulators from their respective websites.
Then install them on your computer and move the contents of the installation folders to the \emulators folder of your Retrobat installation.

/!\ This little tutorial is not made to explain how to configure and add the firmware/bios and other keys needed to use these emulators.



For Yuzu:


Where to download it?

here: https://yuzu-emu.org/downloads/

Where is it located?
here: C:\Users\*YOUR USER*\AppData\Local\yuzu\yuzu-windows-msvc


Folder content:
[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] PBCXNTg



Where to copy it?
In the folder \emulators\yuzu of your Retrobat installation.



[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] JbnsKvN


To make Yuzu portable, you need to put the necessary files in \emulators\yuzu\user




For RyujinX:

Where to download it?
here: https://ryujinx.org/download (version Windows)

Where is it located?
This is a .zip file, not an installer, so unzip the contents of the "publish" folder from the zip directly into \emulators\ryujinx of your Retrobat installation.


[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] U34m7TN


The \emulators\ryujinx\portable folder, as the name suggests, is used to make RyujinX portable.
More informations about that: https://github.com/Ryujinx/Ryujinx/wiki/Ryujinx-Setup-&-Configuration-Guide#portable-mode

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [31] Why are some emulator folders empty?

You may have noticed that the folders present in \emulators\ are empty. Some of them, because the consoles concerned are still on the market (it's the case for the Nintendo Switch with the Yuzu and RyujinX emulators). For the MAME standalone emulator and Teknoparrot, simply because it would make the Retrobat setup much heavier (which is already more than a GB). For Pico8, because it's a paid emulator.

So it's up to you to download them on their respective websites, and to put them in the corresponding folders.

Yuzu: https://yuzu-emu.org/
RyujinX: https://ryujinx.org/
Mame64 Standalone: https://www.mamedev.org/ or our "Retrobat edition": https://retrobat.forumgaming.fr/t595-mame64-standalone-download-link
Teknoparrot: https://teknogods.github.io/
Pico8: https://www.lexaloffle.com/pico-8.php

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [32]Why do I get the message "WE CAN'T FIND ANY SYSTEMS!"?


- You have just installed RetroBat, and when you launch Retrobat.exe this message appears:

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] NnVevfs


Obviously your installation did not go well, delete the installation folder, and start the installation of RetroBat again.


- Your Retrobat was working fine until now, but you still get this message.

There is a possibility that one or more Retrobat system files (es_systems.cfg) are corrupted, in which case you will need to redo a Retrobat installation.

But maybe you modify them. This is not recommended, we will not do any support if it does.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [33] How to create a custom "es_system.cfg"?

Many of you want to annoyed us "tweak" Retrobat, especially when you want to add a RetroArch core or add a standalone emulator.

We strongly recommend that you don't modify the es_system.cfg file located in \emulationstation\.emulationstation\, because when it’s time for a Retrobat update, all your changes would be erased.

But if you are stubborn a real hacker, there is a workaround to prevent your changes from being destroyed after a Retrobat update.


Example:

You want to modify the Gamecube system.

Go to the \emulationstation\.emulationstation\ folder and open the es_system.cfg file within a text editor: Notepad or Notepad ++ (for example.)

And in that file, look for the Gamecube system:

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] 9fswJQO

As on the screenshot above, select the Gamecube system from the <system> tag up to </system> and make "copy" (right click "copy", or ctrl + c)



At the root of the \emulationstation\.emulationstation\ folder, create a blank .txt file and do "paste" (right click "paste", or ctrl + v):

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] U8nl9Tz

Close the file and save it.

Then rename to es_systems.cfg but add the name of the system at the end of the file name: New document text.txt becomes es_systems_gamecube.cfg


Now Retrobat will prioritize the es_systems_gamecube.cfg file for the Gamecube system.

You can therefore make modifications to this custom file, without touching the main es_systems.cfg file.

Note that BatGui.exe also allows you to create a personalized configuration in the "System" tab and then click on [FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Hgx3qB4

Respect the name: es_systems_gamecube.cfg

You can then select your custom file from BatGui.exe on system tab.

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] Ico2 [34] How do I add Cave Story to Retrobat?

This tutorial concerns the version supported by Retroarch, with the core "NX ENGINE"
The NX ENGINE EVO version does not work with Retroarch but like a classic Windows PC game, so to add it to Retrobat see FAQ n°1.

To add the Cave Story game Retroarch version (in English) you can download it directly from RetroArch, accessible from the system menu "RETROBAT":

MAIN MENU > ONLINE UPDATER > Content Downloader


The downloaded "Cave Story" folder can be found in \emulators\retroarch\downloads\


Place the folder Cave Story (en) in the \roms\cavestory folder


Then run RetroBat and in the System "CAVE STORY" (or "PORTS" if you have not ungrouped the systems in the collection options) you must hide the files DoConfig and OrgView:

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] DrzHGzG

and

[FAQ] Retrobat [WIP] 6dXpjKq


Then SAVE.
