Retroarch 1.9.0: Missing Cores?

Hi all,

I recently upgraded from 1.8.7 to 1.9.0 and noticed that the N64, PS2, one of the Saturn, and one of the MAME cores I used to use are gone. So I was wondering if they are actually not included or am I just not seeing them? Also, if they are not all included, is there a way to get them back in Retroarch? Thanks.

Some of the cores haven’t built since the hack we suffered a couple of months ago, but they will return once we get our new and improved automated build infrastructure up and running live.

However, mupen64plus-next and Play! should definitely be available. For up-to-date MAME, you can download it from the repo at or and drop the core lib into your ‘cores’ directory.
