BoredGameDad got in touch recently to hare this awesome PC BATOCERA FULLY LOADED IMAGE with over 12,000 Games ready to play! Called “Super Clean” , after his previous Raspberry Pi 4 Build, this is an absolute crowd pleaser! The preview video below shows just how awesome this multi-platform build is. This Arcade Punks exclusive, is the first (of many) PC Batocera Images we will share from many creators.
HOW TO INSTALL
FROM THE AUTHOR:-
I often get asked if my Pi images work on PC, and while they do not, I think the time has come for a Super Clean PC image!
Every PC has different specs, so I can’t guarantee your hardware will run some of the more difficult to run systems like PS2 or GameCube perfectly. Also, it’s very difficult to trouble shoot installation issues on a PC. I’d recommend starting with the Batocera wiki if you run into trouble: https://wiki.batocera.org/install_batocera
Here are the specs for the PC this was built on: HP Elitedesk 705 G4 with a Ryzen 5 2400GE APU, 16GB 3200 MHz Crucial RAM (running at 2900Mhz since that’s the max this motherboard supports), and a 1TB Samsung NVME SSD. If your PC is better than that you can easily run everything included in this image, if your PC is less powerful, feel free to delete any systems you feel you can’t/won’t use to give yourself more space to add more things you’ll enjoy.
This image is running Batocera v35. This version has added LIGHT GUN SUPPORT! So if you have a Wii remote or light gun and want to enjoy Duck Hunt, House of the Dead, or any other light gun game the way they were intended to be enjoyed then this is the image for you! Here are details from the Batocera wiki on setting up light guns: https://wiki.batocera.org/emulators:lightgun_games
Once again, I’m running the CKAU Book theme on this image. This theme has a TON of customization options in the menu, and I encourage everyone to take a look. It’s essentially multiple themes in one!
As I always say, this is by no means meant to be the ultimate does-it-all build. This is intended to be a stable base for those looking for it, that you can add to or subtract from to your heart’s content. For example, there are no Amiga or Commodore 64 games on here, as I personally am a console gamer. But I did leave around 100GB of available space to make any additions that you’d like!
I used GParted to trim 5GBs from the image file once it was completed. Hopefully no one has any issues with the image fitting on their drive, but you can trim additional space of with GParted if you need to. Removing games from the image WILL NOT decrease the size of the image file, just the amount of available free space once it’s written.
I’ve done my best to hide additional discs for multi-disc games. My apologies is something snuck through. Batocera should auto-load the next disc for you, as well. I’ve also updated to the MAME .249 romset, so there are a lot of fanstatic games that were not included in my Pi builds.
I hope you all enjoy the build!
(WARNING: Many of the systems feature full romsets, which may include ADULT content. It’s possible that one of the scraped videos for these games can appear as the screensaver. You can disable the screensaver or just have it dim if need be.)

FIXES V1 RELEASED (19TH JAN 2023)
GameCube and Naomi Fixes. (download below)
A few GameCube ROMs were not automatically changing discs in my 1TB Super Clean Batocera image.
The included files correct that issue.
You’ll need to access the gamecube folder in the SHARE partition to add these files.
Instructions to do that can be found on the Batocera wiki here: https://tinyurl.com/5yhufrvf
Copy and paste or drag & drop the .m3u and gameslist files directly into the gamecube folder.
The contents of the Scraped Art folder should be copied into the downloaded images folder that is found in the GameCube folder.
Replace the Naomi folder with the one supplied (delete old one, replace with new one)
Once everything is copy over, restart your Batocera system and you’re good to go!
Highly advise using USENET (NZB) to download this, it’ll come SCREAMING down your line if you use one of our approved UseNet suppliers – see this page for more information. Note if your usenet (nzb) client is claiming there is a password then you need to use a different client – we DO NOT share password protected archives unless otherwise informed.
If using torrent we highly recommend using TIXATI on larger images as can handle large chunks BIGGER and FASTER!!
NOTE: Files are UNALTERED – Arcade Punks do NOT edit or alter any files or images – We may, on occasion Archive them up to save YOUR bandwidth but our extracted files are EXACTLY like the source (its very easy to CRC check) – People may say “DONT DOWNLOAD FROM APUNKS” but there is no real reason other than a bit of scene pettiness – if seeking support in their forums/discord ensure you DO NOT mention that you downloaded FOR FREE, WITHOUT HASSLE from Arcade Punks – it is EXACTLY the same files.
