Retroarch For Chromebook

RetroArch enables you to play games online. You can challenge players around the world and compete on classic games like Mario Kart, Bomberman, Street Fighter, or team up on games like Streets of Rage or Sonic 3.

RetroArch relies on peer-to-peer networking to reduce network latency and ensure the best possible experience.

Download the retroarchwithcores.zip. Drag-and-drop it on hakchi2 window. Press 'OK' button and follow instructions. Also you can install CloverApp-ForNES.zip / CloverApp-ForSNES.zip if you want to add RetroArch to menu. RetroArch thumbnail packs RetroArch provides packs of thumbnails suitable for use with many emulated systems. These thumbnail packs are recommended for most users and can be installed connecting to the internet and using the built-in thumbnails updater, available from the online update menu within the RetroArch settings interface. Load your core by clicking on the first tab. Scroll down until you reach the desired Core. We will use Nestopia for now. Don't forget - Content must be compatible with the matched Core. RetroArch is an open-source project that makes use of a powerful development interface called Libretro. Libretro is an interface that allows you to make cross-platform applications that can use rich features such as OpenGL, cross-platform camera support, location support, and more in the future.

The lobby

The most convenient way to try netplay is to use the lobby inside the menu.

You need an active internet connection and a router that supports UPnP port forwarding.

You will also need to own the same ROM as your partner and have it scanned and in your playlists. We recommend ROMs from the No-Intro sets.

To join a netplay room in the lobby, just refresh the room list and press A on a room entry.

To host your own netplay session, press A on Start netplay host and a room will be created and announced publicly.

This lobby will also work for local rooms (on your home local network).

Manual netplay

Advanced users have the possibility to setup netplay manually.

The Network Settings enables you to tweak how the network code will behave when you are acting as Server.

If you don't need NAT traversal, it can be disabled in the settings.

When you are acting as client, most of these settings will have no effect. The only things you will have to set will be the Server IP.

After you have configured netplay as you wish, launch a game and use:

  • Start netplay host to act as server
  • Connect to netplay host to act as client

How to Host
