[Batch File] Core Splitter (Windows | Android)


#1

Using the same idea as @le_el ( this post ), I modified the code to split the main core and the info file, and all new cores have yours own options. Ideal to use a different shaders/overlays/remaps/overrides for each system.

Instruction:

Windows

Place the two files in “cores” folder and run the .bat. The main core and the info file will be splitted. If run the .bat again, the splitted files will be recreated.

Android (by @le_el)

Copy from /data/data/com.retroarch/cores/ and /data/data/com.retroarch/info/ (you may need root), and put on somefolder\cores\ and somefolder\info.

Run the .bat from inside the somefolder\cores\ folder and it will do it’s job.

Then put back the new files from both folders back into/data/data/com.retroarch/cores/ and /data/data/com.retroarch/info/ (again, you may need root).

If the Android’s retroarch can allow to change the core/info folder to the sdcard or main memory, it should be easier and avoid the need of root.

Thanks, @le_el, for your method, and @RetroFans, for testing.

Any plan on making android split cores?


#3

I’m not a programmer, I’m just curious. :grin:

I shared the file because it worked well for me and maybe someone can improve it.

Thanks.

For Android, copy from /data/data/com.retroarch/cores/ and /data/data/com.retroarch/info/ (you may need root), and put on somefolder\cores\ and somefolder\info\

Open the bat in notepad and replace all .dll with _android.so, and save.

Run the .bat from inside the somefolder\cores\ folder and it will do it’s job.

Done!

Then put back the new files from both folders back into/data/data/com.retroarch/cores/ and /data/data/com.retroarch/info/ (again, you may need root).

And I believe it should work.

EDIT:

If the Android’s retroarch can allow to change the core/info folder to the sdcard or main memory, it should be easier and avoid the need of root.

Hi sorry to bump this tread. thank again but is it possible to make a batch for the regular fba core on android? I Would like to have 2 neo geo system with arcade mode MVS and console mode AES but the new override folder system doesn’t take care about options needed to change the AES /MVS settings. Thanks a lot Regards

The problem is getting those compatible naomi sets…as far as I know , only emuparadise had the .bin and .lst files and that website no longer offers downloads


#30

I have a link to the fullset (only atomiswave games) in bin + lst format PM me if you want it


#32

Hi, thank again for this update and your marvelous work! Fb alpha work like a charm on windows. Unfortunaly I test the batch for fb alpha for android and the batch work recreating the cores and info files but when I put the cores again on /data/data/com.retroarch/cores/, I load retroarch and see the new cores available but it doesn t load and retroarch says no core. I use the last update of the core. Maybe something change (name or something else on info files) But thanks again for the windows versions working Regards


#33
