First off Ninja I want to say out of all the sites on the net, Arcade Punks has been the best for information so far on how to get into retro gaming. All the other websites have had total jerks to me including the Coinops rooms on Discord.
So thank you for the welcomes and acceptance.
My goal is a nice wheel with as many games as possible, who wouldn’t want that.
I bought 3 Legends machines, a full cabinet, and 2 pucks and I have about 98% operable wheels on each one of those using OneSaUCE and Awesome SaUCE.
The processing power won’t handle game consoles past N64, PS1, or Dreamcast without lagging or locking up, so I moved on to wheels on PC.
I like Next 2 and Collections and I saw your hype on Atarashii on YouTube and it looks interesting but maybe too complex to try and build and I haven’t seen packs out for it advertised.
I met a guy in Discord from England named George about a week ago and he has been the single most helpful person I’ve ever met and I would give him my last meal on Earth for all he has walked me through so far.
If you’re out there George and you’re reading this, you deserve all accolades that can be dealt, duder.
What I’m not getting now is when a console on the menu doesn’t work is there a set of steps you follow to figure out exactly what is needed to finally play the games on that console?
So far I got:
Make sure Direct X is up to date: check
Make sure vcredist are all up to date: check
The retrofe program has many settings and checks for missing files <
I get that there has to be console cores here. Beyond that I’m not sure.
Then the RetroArch program has many settings and checks for missing files <---- I got part of this but not enough. Make sure the roms are there. Make sure the art is there and everything matches names. Something about bios….something something….then I’m lost. Thanks in advance Ninja for your help. ~Harley
