OpenBOR



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


Emulator: OpenBOR

ROMS:

Accepted extensions: .pak

Place your OpenBOR games in

/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports/openbor

Then you need to run

/opt/retropie/ports/openbor/extract.sh

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. There you 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 openbor directory 3. Extracted data will be stored to /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports/openbor/gamename.bor/data 4. The script backups 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.
