[http://themaister.net/retroarch.html RetroArch] is a modular, command-line driven, multi-system emulator system that is designed to be fast, lightweight, and portable. It has features few other emulators frontends have, such as real-time rewinding and game-aware shading based on the [https://github.com/libretro/libretro.github.com/wiki/Documentation-devs libretro] API.
+
 
+
==Install==
+
 
+
Currently {{aur|retroarch-git}} is in the [[AUR]].
+
 
+
A GTK/QT alternative, {{aur|retroarch-git-pheonix}}, is also available.
+
 
+
==Usage==
+
 
+
RetroArch makes use of separate emulator cores (or implementations) available from both the [[AUR]] and [https://github.com/libretro libretro's github].
+
 
+

+
* {{aur|libretro-bnes-git}}
+
* {{aur|libretro-bsnes-git}}
+
* {{aur|libretro-fba-git}}
+
* {{aur|libretro-fceu-git}}
+
* {{aur|libretro-gambatte-git}}
+
* {{aur|libretro-genplus-git}}
+

+

+
 
+
To run {{ic|retroarch}} with your preferred system simply launch it with the {{ic|-L}} parameter followed by the path to the {{ic|.so}} file.
+
 
+
retroarch -L /usr/lib/libretro/libretro-[system].so [ROM].smc
+
 
+
==Configuration==
+
 
+
RetroArch provides a skeleton configuration file which can be found at {{ic|/etc/retroarch.cfg}} and is very well commented.
+
{{Note|The file paths in {{ic|retroarch.cfg}} are '''relative'''. They are also unable to expand {{ic|~/}} so either run {{ic|retroarch}} against the paths or specify the full path e.g. {{ic|/home/user/.config/retroarch/[saves]}}}}
