Installing a new core?

Im planning on writing my own core. I’ve read the vectrex core blog and started playing with the skeleton core. My question is how can I get my freshly compiled core to appear in retroarch? - just copy the .so file into the cores directory and create a .info file or is there more to it?

hey, that’s awesome :slight_smile:

Yes, if you just drop the lib into your cores directory, it’ll show up under its filename. An info file will let it show up with a fancy name.

I have a dummy core running now, though it doesn’t do a lot at the moment. My next question is how to I get the path of any configuration file I might use? I’m guessing configurations are stored in retroarch/config/ but is there a programmatic method of getting this path?
