Page update

I think this page is quite out of date so I would like to edit it. A Retroarch developer has recently written a new guide with lots of information which could be useful for the Arch wiki too: http://www.libretro.com/index.php/getting-started-with-retroarch/ Pepedopolous (talk) 14:12, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

Yes, please and thanks in advance. See Help:Editing and Help:Style first if you are not familiar with Arch wiki.--Fengchao (talk) 06:34, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

I think the Usage section of this article is out of date or just wrong considering the way Retroarch is designed. By default, Retroarch creates a config directory and file in the user's /home. Then all cores, shaders, and other resources can be installed and updated via the programs online updater. There is no need to install cores to /usr/lib/ from the AUR. For advanced features, there are one or two config directories that need to be created and specified in the config file. I would completely replace the Usage section and make a note that there still exist libretro core packages on the AUR.Pepedopolous (talk) 10:25, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

Rewrote most of the page to reflect the current default behavior. Will close this section unless anyone still has complaints.

No Core Found Out of date

"No cores found"

"By default RetroArch will attempt to find cores in /usr/lib/libretro/."

This section seems to be out of date. As of a fresh install of libretro with cores from the official repos I found that the default folder for cores was actually `~/.config/retroarch/cores` Jasminabasurita (talk) 22:32, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Updated most of the page to reflect that the default behavior is now the opposite of what it used to be. Will close this later unless you find more issues.
