Frankly, I'm getting fed up with this thing. I've went through at least four different builds, and there's always something wrong with one of them. The version of Recalbox is pretty good, for the most part, but it can't handle many 2600 games, and those are exactly what I'm in the mood for at the moment. I tried another build called Hercules, and while THAT runs 2600 games just fine, it's a couple of years old and staunchly refuses to update. Yes, I've tried the guides I've found on emulation sites, and have even entered some code in Linux, precisely what I was trying to avoid when I started using Recalbox in the first place. I've also got a build of RetroPie (separate from the one I tried when I first got the Raspberry Pi), and while it runs... okay, it's got unprofessional transitions to the games and makes it impossible to permanently change settings. I try to select "change core settings," only to be told "I'm afraid I can't do that, Jess," while the Pi tries to shut off the life support in my house.
So I ask you, AtariAge-a-maniacs, is there a way to update individual emulators in a Recalbox or Retropie build? Or is all that baked into the software and can't be changed? These programs do an amazing job of hiding everything from the user, including the location of the emulators. There's supposed to be an option to switch emulators and cores for each system in Advanced Settings, but it looks like I don't really have a choice. If the build is set to use FCEUX, for instance, that's what it's going to use, even if I'd like to try NEStopia or QuickNES instead. It's frustrating enough that I want to make up my own game... it's called "Pitch the Raspberry Pi at the wall until it stops working."
