    Hello All,
    I’m attempting to setup a Retropie for non-techy friends. I want the setup to be as clean as possible. I currently have a large collection of ROMs, but cannot find any compatibility lists for roms for Retropie. Ideally, I’d like to remove all roms that do NOT work for a given system (using Retroarch for all + mupen64 only) so that there’s no chance of the system “not working” for my non-techy friends.

    Is there a list or wiki or anything else there with compatibility of most roms for each respective system?? From my random game testing, it appears all SNES, NES, and genesis roms work without issue. There appears to be a large gap in n64 roms, many of which won’t even start. Thanks

    It’s more emulator dependant than retropie itself. Almost every emulator until 16 bit era have large compatibility, standalone or retroarch cores. N64 emulation it’s not suitable right now for our raspi(and I doubt it will be perfectly playable someday), even with powerful computers N64 emulation is complex. I know some games work fine with mupen64plus but only a handful of them.

    Some info about getting the most roms for n64 to work (without using retroarch). Also a video link to show how they run on the pi2.
