    A new version of RetroArch has been released across many supporting platforms including the supported PlayStation devices (PS3 / PS Vita (pstv) / PSP). For these platforms there has been some changes that have been made across all ports but the highlight of this release comes with a new platform supported by RetroArch and that is the introduction of the Nintendo Switch version.​






    • RetroArch 1.7.5 – Released!
      NOTE: Currently the following versions have not yet been released – Xbox OG, MacOSX PowerPC, Windows 95/98/2000/XP. I am working on building those versions as we speak.
      Highlights
      • Launch of Nintendo Switch version - Easily the main event of this release. Read our dedicated blog article here – https://www.libretro.com/index.php/retroarch-1-7-5-introducing-libnx-switch-version/
      • Menu improvements – dropdown lists - We were fully cognizant of the fact that it was very inconvenient for many mobile users (such as Android users) to have to repeatedly click on a setting in order to adjust its value. So we have finally implemented dropdown lists now for the majority of the settings! A dropdown list will appear when you either click on a certain setting or press the ‘OK’ button on your gamepad. Settings that have a dropdown lists are typically decimal/hexadecimal settings, or even string lists. We have even made the core options feature dropdown lists, and they work uniformly across all currently existing menu drivers right now. So that means the dropdown lists work with RGUI, MaterialUI as well as XMB! We hope this will smooth over some of the rough edges that have existed in the raster-based UI for quite some time!
      • Adaptive V-Sync implemented for OpenGL (Windows/Linux) - We have implemented the “swap_control_tear” extension for OpenGL when using WGL on Windows or GLX on Linux. In order to take advantage of this, your GPU needs to support either the “WGL_swap_control_tear” extension (for Windows) or “GLX_swap_control_tear” (for Linux). Adaptive V-Sync is basically a conditional V-Sync mode. V-Sync is enabled until performance falls below the target refresh rate. If it falls below the target framerate, it will conditionally disable V-Sync. Basically the logic behind this is that tear lines is preferable vs. a sudden halving of the framerate (under a normal double buffered V-Sync configuration) from 60 fps to 30fps, and from 30 fps to 15fps, and so on. This can minimize stuttering when performance falls below real-time, and can be more energy efficient. It can also help with very intensive shaders that makes the framerate fall below fullspeed. Adaptive V-Sync is commonly seen on current-generation game consoles such as Xbox One and PlayStation4.
      • Improved Vulkan performance (especially for Nvidia cards) – mailbox emulation - Thanks to Themaister’s latest patches implementing mailbox emulation for Vulkan, there should no longer be frame pacing / stuttering issues with Vulkan on Windows when using Nvidia graphics cards. Please read his blog article for more details.
      • Easy recording/streaming options (for versions with ffmpeg support) - RetroArch video streaming feature was revamped with GUI support, automatic file naming and quality presets. Live Streaming to YouTube and Twitch is now possible with a single click (after setting up your stream key of course). You can go to Settings -> User -> Accounts and configure your Youtube/Twitch stream key there.
      • UDP Streaming to another RetroArch instance - In addition to streaming to YouTube and Twitch (and to file) you can now stream to another RetroArch instance. This is meant to be the backbone for Discord spectate mode. And streaming netplay (think parsec, gfe co-op) An interesting fact about this is that you could stream at 1x without shaders and playback in another instance with shaders and at any scale you want. Of course all these things still need more work, GPU assisted recording, custom FFMPEG, etc. But I’ll get there eventually. To playback on another instance just do: retroarch udp://127.0.0.1:56400

    Notes:
    ---------------------------------
    34 included cores in both version.
    -- MAME 2003 Returns,
    -- mGBA present in 1.7.4 but not 1.7.5
    -Mednafen Lynx still missing
    -SuperGrafx still missing

    More then likely still non working cores in v1.7.5 (not tested, but were flawed in previous version)

    The game compatibility and stability of mame2003 in PS3 superceeds mame2000 ?
    Im wondering if they are going to remove mame2000 in the next PS3 update

    Btw, fuse most probably needs keyboard

    They are close but some games in 2003 play better and some games are supported in 0.78 and not in 0.35b7
    Also some games play a bit better in 2003. Good to have both options really.

    FUSE has had other issues..
