No option to download core in appimage version

I downloaded the appimage version but i don’t see option to download core. If i go to ‘Load Core’ it shows ‘Directory not found’:

Also, why the interface of the appimage version is different than the interface of the flatpak version?

Looks like you’re missing the assets/home directory package. If you moved the AppImage executable away from the *.home package it comes bundled with, you’ll lose all that stuff and it’ll look for it in ~/.config/retroarch.

No i didn’t move the executable, but the *.home directory is empty.
