Looking for the cache directory of lr-mupen64plus-next



  • Pi Model or other hardware: Pi Model 4 (4GB)
    Power Supply used: Official Raspi 4 Powersupply
    RetroPie Version Used (eg 3.6, 3.8.1, 4.1 - do not write latest): unofficial 4.5.9
    Built From: (Pre made SD Image on RetroPie website)
    USB Devices connected: Keyboard Mouse Controller
    Controller used: Custom Fightstick with Brooks Board
    File: (File with issue - with FULL path)
    Emulator: lr-mupen64plus-next
    Attachment of config files: (PLEASE USE PASTEBIN.COM FOR LARGE LOGS)
    How to replicate the problem:

    I am trying to identify the cache directory with which to place .htc formatted texture files which are compatible with Mupen64plus-next

    PC based instructions for installation in Retroarch are
    1: Download the Mupen64plus-Next core.
    2: Load the core and a game, it doesn't matter which game. This will generate a Mupen64plus in the \system folder of your Retroarch install. (This folder did exist already when I looked in the /home/pi/Retropie/BIOS folder)
    3: In your \system\Mupen64plus folder create a new folder called cache and place your .htc format texture packs in this new folder.
    4: Now load up Retroarch and a game again and then bring up the Quick Menu > Options and look for Use High-Res textures and Use High-Res Full Alpha Channel. Set both of these to True and close out Retroarch once more.

    According to verbose logging
    [INFO] [Environ]: SYSTEM_DIRECTORY: "/home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS".
    I have tried creating
    /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS/Mupen64plus/cache
    just by making a cache folder and uploading .htc tex packs to this directory ensure my core was set to lr-mupen64plus.next

    Corresponding game will load but texture packs do not apply I have confirmed that the use hi rez textures and full alpha channel options are on and saved.

    I have also checked the retroarch.cfg file to see if it is specifying a texture path or cache directory

    pi@retropie:/opt/retropie/configs/n64 $ cat retroarch.cfg | grep dir
    assets_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/assets"
    audio_filter_dir = "default"
    bundle_assets_dst_path_subdir = ""
    cache_directory = "/tmp/retroarch"
    content_history_dir = ""
    core_assets_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/downloads"
    cursor_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/database/cursors"
    dynamic_wallpapers_directory = "default"
    input_remapping_directory = "/opt/retropie/configs/n64/"
    joypad_autoconfig_dir = "~/.config/retroarch/autoconfig"
    libretro_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/cores"
    log_dir = "~/.config/retroarch/logs"
    overlay_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/overlay"
    playlist_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/playlists"
    quick_menu_show_save_content_dir_overrides = "true"
    recording_config_directory = ""
    recording_output_directory = ""
    resampler_directory = ""
    rgui_browser_directory = "~/RetroPie/roms"
    rgui_config_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/config"
    runtime_log_directory = "default"
    savefile_directory = "default"
    savefiles_in_content_dir = "false"
    savestate_directory = "default"
    savestates_in_content_dir = "false"
    screenshot_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/screenshots"
    screenshots_in_content_dir = "false"
    settings_show_directory = "true"
    system_directory = "~/RetroPie/BIOS"
    systemfiles_in_content_dir = "false"
    thumbnails_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/thumbnails"
    video_filter_dir = "default"
    video_shader_dir = "~/.config/retroarch/shaders"

    The cache directory it lists is simply a tmp cache folder not meant for the texture packs to reside in and again the system directory is specified.



  • Did you ever figure this out?

    Im having the same exact issue as you.
