    Default Roadmap for RetroArch 1.7 and beyond released

    One of the biggest emulators of recent years is Retroarch , the emulator itself covers many systems but is it a jack of all trades but a master of none ? heres the latest news:

    RetroArch is a Ďmanagerí for various emulators (called cores). This means that with one program, you can play all your retro games (such as NES/SNES/MD/PSX/(even) Wii and more) so you donít have to worry about having lots of emulators and files in different places. RetroArch is more useful on consoles (both portable and handheld) in which you canít manipulate and open folders that easily, so for some people, RetroArch is a god send as itís a relatively simple way to manage and run all your retro games

    The roadmap has the following highlights:

    • Support for the original XBOX and XBOX 360 will be coming back soon. This is because the folks over at RetroArch have reverse engineered the Makefile targets for Visual Studio which makes maintaining these platforms a breeze.RetroArch on Windows 98. RetroArch on your fridge/toaster may come up next!

    • The team over at RetroArch have also acquired some devices such as the NES/SNES Classic, Steam Link and GCW Zero. This means that weíll eventually see a port on these consoles. On the S/NES Classic (probably a port that a good amount of you want), the approach to implementing the cores will be different as RetroArch may be an extension of the S/NES Classicís regular UI rather than a whole UI altogether. This will make RetroArch look much better since itíll integrate directly into the UI itself. A good deal of work needs to be done before we see a S/NES Classic port so donít pester the hardworking people at RetroArch for a release.
    • Windows 95 support (yes, 95 for people that love utilising their old computer to he maximum) will also be officialy implemented soon thanks to Brad Parker (as he seems to like extending backwards compatibility to older versions of Windows).
    • A Direct3D 8 fallback will be implemented so RetroArch will run on every card newer than the Geforce 3(included Ė excluding the Geforce 4 MX) and ATI cards released in the same era.
    • OpenGL 1.x support will eventually come to RetroArch so lots of older cards will be supported but donít hold your breath as they donít know when itíll start working.


    sounds awesome, as an emulation fan i cant wait to see what comes next

    I use the PS Vita version to play Sega Genesis (Mega Drive) roms but I still prefer the likes of PicoDrive though and tend to pull out the old PSP to run that instead.
