I tried installing Mupen64plus and Mupen64plus-libretro via binaries and source. It appears like they are working when installed via source, the install goes on for a few minutes with a big ASCII “Mupen64″etc showing up, but the folders do not appear in \roms.
Do I need to add them manually, or did my install fail?
How do you know which emulator is being used in the default \n64 roms folder?
Your ROMs will still go in the n64 directory you’ll just have new options in the x or m menu as you load a ROM to choose those emulators. You can change the default emulator to your newly installed n64 emulator by pressing x or m as your ROM loads
There are separate folders for mame because the ROMs are from different romsets- you could have two two pacman ROMs where one will work on advmame and one will work on mame4all.
I don’t think there is any email list- petrockblog has a twitter account he usually announces releases on. But you could also just check the downloads page periodically or follow the source code on github:
