Find the best emulator / core for Arcade games

Available since 1882 beta 20

ARRM proposes to select (highlight) the Roms whose Core selected in a combobox is the best for these Roms. You can then apply the emulator / core which will be written in the gamelist.

Here's how to do it:

Select a system (only one) containing arcade roms (with their standard file name) then click on Display

When the Database is filled with the Roms found,

Go to the Arcade tab, select the desired Core, then click on the green check mark. ARRM will highlight the Roms whose selected core is the best.

All you have to do is apply this core (different depending on the chosen frontend) by clicking on the Set core / emu button.

This will update the <emulator> and <core> tags in the gamelist.

Batocera specificity

(from beta 1882 beta 20)

On Batocera , the forcing of emulators / Cores is done via the batocera.conf file located under \\batocera\share\system

For each game, we can define the emulator and the core by adding lines in the batocera.conf file of this type:

dreamcast ["Crazy Taxi 2.cdi"]. core = reicast
dreamcast ["Crazy Taxi 2.cdi"]. emulator = libretro
n64 ["1080 Snowboarding.n64"]. core = mupen64plus
n64 ["1080 Snowboarding.n64"]. emulator = libretro
saturn ["Decathlete (1996) (Sega of America) (US) .cue"]. core = beetle-saturn
saturn ["Decathlete (1996) (Sega of America) (US) .cue"]. emulator = libretro
psx ["102 Dalmatians.pbp"]. core = mednafen_psx
psx ["102 Dalmatians.pbp"]. emulator = libretro

You must activate the Core/Emulator per game checkbox in the Gamelist Options tab

If the <core> and/or <emulator> tags are entered in your gamelist.xml (see procedure above), ARRM can generate, when saving the gamelist, a text file containing the configuration lines to add to the batocera.conf file.

This generated file is located in %appdata%\Nexouille soft\arrm\temp\batocera.conf\batocera.conf.%system%.txt

You just have to copy the lines of this file at the end of your batocera.conf file Click on the icon to access the directory containing this file generated by ARRM

See the detail of this operation ( Set core / emu ) in the section Change the emulator and the core by game
