X68000 - setting disk-swap directories



  • I'm trying to run some multi-disk games in lr-px68k and it's going pretty well except for one annoying thing.

    For games on more than two disks you have to hot-swap them during play. The Retroarch menu lets you do that easily enough, but it always starts looking in the Pi's root directory, which means a lot of tedious navigating through folders to get to the one with your disks in it.

    According to the libretro docs:

    "The starting directory for loading disks is determined by the setting StartDir in the system/keropi/config file."

    I worked out that this meant /opt/retropie/configs/x68000/config, which has a blank StartDir= line.

    But when I set it to

    StartDir=/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/x68000
    

    it does nothing. Retroarch still starts looking in the root folder. I've tried adding and removing spaces and slashes at the start and end, to no avail. What am I missing?

    Ha, outfoxed it. What it actually wants is the line

    rgui_browser_directory = "/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/x68000/"
    

    added to /opt/retropie/configs/x68000/retroarch.cfg



  • Hello friends, I need to run in Sharp X68000 emulator .zip files using the .m3u method, but only works with uncompressed .dim files, anyone able to make it work with .zip files?

    @SpudsMcToole I wonder if you get the same results by using

    content_directory="/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/x68000/
    

    That might be something worth setting for disc based games.
