OpenBOR is the open source continuation of Beats of Rage - a 2D sidescrolling beat em up game engine.

Emulator: OpenBOR


Accepted extensions: .pak

Place your OpenBOR games in


Then you need to run


Your games are extracted and ready to be played. Your originals are stored safely in /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports/openbor/original but they won't be needed anymore. Everything within it can be deleted.

Alternative to the current extracting script (because the way above fails on FAT32 devices!) use this extraction script from RetroPie forum.:

  1. Place your paks to /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports/openbor/pak
  2. Just run the script. The script extracts all pak-files (even with mixed characters) to the openbor directory
  3. Extracted data will be stored to /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports/openbor/gamename.bor/data
  4. The script backs up the old PAK files automatically (gamename.pak will be gamename.pak.original)

For Windows users, just search for Openbor Makepak & Extractor and download the toolset.

You need a keyboard to navigate the menus or you can setup the system with preconfigurated control settings. Therefore read more in the hints: OpenBOR - the complete guide
