Add Emulators

Post by olivejew » Thu Feb 21, 2019 4:24 am

Is it possible to add other emulators? I'm not seeing anything anywhere about how to (I want to add Gamecube support). I'm 90% sure I read that I could before I bought the Pi JAMMA kit and now I can't find that info either.

It is possible to add more emulators. Most systems prior to the N64 (except Saturn) emulate great on RPi. @Phones made this post recently about adding c64 support viewtopic.php?f=9&t=829 the attached blog post is probably the most comprehensive guide to adding emulators anyone has written (thanks Phones).

Unfortunately it is not possible to add Gamecube support (at least in a way that is worth doing). The RPi isn't fast enough to get usable performance out of the Dolphin emulator. (long term, with a theoretical faster Pi that doesn't yet exist, it should be do-able as the Dolphin emulator is pretty good as far as I know)
