I’ve been using Retroarch for a good while now on Windows 10, with custom playlists for all those CD systems which the ROM scanner doesn’t support (such as Mega CD, Saturn, and PC Engine CD). They’re time consuming to make but if they’re set up just right, they work perfectly.
I’ve just bought a Shield and I’ve been setting Retroarch up on it. The ROMs scanned by the auto scanner all work fine, but my custom playlists aren’t behaving at all. Most of the time the playlists show up as empty on my Shield, except after multiple hours of fiddling I managed to get a single ROM to show up. The trouble is, if I add anything to this playlist at all, it breaks again and either shows nothing at all, or just random parts of the ROM path.
Here’s the bit which works:
/storage/74D88696D8865670/SuperCDRom/Akumajou_Dracula_X_-Chi_no_Rinne(NTSC-J)_[KMCD3005].cue Akumajou Dracula X Rondo of Blood /data/user/0/com.retroarch/cores/mednafen_pce_fast_libretro_android.so Beetle PCE Fast NEC - PC Engine CD - TurboGrafx-CD.lpl
When I add this below, the next ROM doesn’t appear in Retroarch:
/storage/74D88696D8865670/SuperCDRom/Choujikuu_Yousai_Macross_-Eien_no_Love_Song(NTSC-J)_[NSCD2014].cue Choujikyuu Yousai Macross Do You Remember Love /data/user/0/com.retroarch/cores/mednafen_pce_fast_libretro_android.so Beetle PCE Fast NEC - PC Engine CD - TurboGrafx-CD.lpl
I’ve checked and double checked the paths, and they’re fine. I’ve made several working playlists on Windows, but on Android they’re just not playing ball.
Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks all.
