I recently loaded Batocera one an old HP mini computer. It currently has all the bios for all retro consoles (that I could find).
The internal HD is 250GBs so I was thinking of using an external HD connecting via USB to contain all the ROMs.
I enjoy a lot of the old consoles (Nintendo, Sega, NeoGeo) the Arcade games (mame, NAOMI), all the way up to Sega Dreamcast games.
My questions are:
- is it possible to configure batocera to always look for the games on the external drive but use the BIOS currently on the internal drive (and if so, can someone point me to an article that shows the process? most of what ive found hasnt made sense to me)
- what image would I need to download in order to extract the roms onto a hard drive that people recommend
- what is the best external hard drive to use to do this with?
Thank you 🙂
