retro-gtk 1.0.0 released! 🎉
This major API cleanup of the @Libretro frontend library that powers @GNOME Games now runs cores isolated in a subprocess, supports cores rendering with OpenGL, improves its timing accuracy, and resamples its audio.
@KekunPlazas nice, but i have a question
How's the Raspberry pi 4 or ARM support?
I tried to run games on the Raspberry Pi using Ubuntu 20.04 64 bits, but every time i wanted to run a SNES ROM the application would crash.
@lorabe I noticed the issue with previous versions on my Librem 5 but I never yook the time to investigate, I assume it affects many ARM hardware.
@KekunPlazas Thanks for the answer.
Games is my favorite emulator, i hope it will work on ARM in the future.
I have 2 theories here (I don't have an ARM device, so cannot investigate myself):
1. the app tries to int GL instead of GLES -> fail. I know this happened with Adrien's L5 previously
2. The core crashes on ARM - unlikely, but possible
That said, the core we use for SNES is pretty heavy (bsnes-mercury-balanced), not sure how well it would work on rpi4 to begin with.
