    i have seen libretro has added a core for reicast.

    Can i just add it to Retropie? Or does it have to be compiled for ARM first?
    Are there any guides how to do that?

    Thanks in advance!

    no. it can’t be done currently and its doubtful it will be any better than the standalone reicast even if were able to be compiled for the pi as most libretro cores perform worse than their standalone counterparts.

    There’s little point in attempting to compile it, the libretro port is known broken at the moment.
