App request for RetroArch. An emulator for various game platforms.

Open Source >

Or an app that uses the libretro api.

I'm working on it. Implemented touch input for both sdl2 and wayland backends so it's already possible to play games with an overlay controller. No idea if joysticks/gamepads work via sdl2 but i see no reason why it shouldn't work. Only problem right now is that touch input isn't working correctly in the menu for some reason and there is no onscreen keyboard in the menu either.

Nothing public yet but maybe i'll get around to push my stuff to github this weekend.

many devs don't seem to care much for SFOS anymore.

Sorry completely forgot about posting here that i got it to work and uploaded packages to

You can find everything here:

I haven't updated the openrepos packages to the newest retroarch version yet but have it running locally so i hopefully get around to it in the next few weeks. I'm also in the process of building all the libretro cores since many cores in the official repositories are now build with a newer version of glibc than SailfishOS provides.
