Here you will be able to reboot or shut down your console and access the RETROARCH menu if you wish, DO NOT TOUCH THE RESTART, EMULATIONSTATION, AND REBOOT FROM NAND OPTIONS as this will void the warranty.


Several shortcuts are available in the games:

 Exit games: for all systems except PSP and Nintendo DS, the way to exit a game is to simply press START + SELECT at the same time twice in a row.

Exiting a PSP game: Press the “LT” trigger and then select the return to menu/exit tab.

Exit a Nintendo DS game: Simply press the “LT” trigger on your controller.

Changing discs: On some games like Final Fantasy VII, which has 3 CDs, you will be asked to switch from one CD to another during the game. To do so, click simultaneously on the 2 joysticks of your controller to access the Retroarch interface, then go to the “disc control” section and select “eject disc” once it is done. You will only have to load the new CD from the “current disc number” section.

Quickly scroll through menus: To quickly scroll through games and consoles, you can use the “LT” and “RT” triggers to navigate through the menus much more quickly as all games are listed in alphabetical order.

Tips and tricks
  • The Nintendo DS emulation is quite particular as it is composed of 2 screens, one of which is touch-sensitive and is mostly played with a stylus pen. The stylus pen is replaced by your joysticks; simply move them to see your stylus appear and click on it to simulate pressure on the screen.
  • The arcade consoles MAME, ATOMISWAVE, CAPCOM, FINAL BURN Neo, and NAOMI require credits to play. To add credits, simply press the SELECT button on your controller.
  • Various options are available to you from the RETROARCH menu, such as the “instant save” and “instant load” options, which allows you to resume your game exactly where you left off. It is however FORBIDDEN to touch certain options such as the game settings, which will alter the game emulation.
Instant save and load

From the RETROARCH menu, the “instant save” and “instant load” options allow you to save and resume your game exactly where you left off. They are very useful for games that don’t allow you to save when you want to. To do this, simply press both joysticks on your controller to bring up the Retroarch menu, then select the “instant save” option, and you are done. Then, you will simply need to do the same thing and select “instant loading” to resume your game exactly where you left it. It is however FORBIDDEN to touch certain options such as the game settings, which will alter the game emulation.

For the PSP, the handling is almost the same, you just have to press the “LT” trigger on your controller to access the game menu and then select the “Save Status” tab. Then, you just need to do the same thing, this time pressing “Load Status” to resume your game where you left off.

Add/delete a game from your favourites

The “favourites” section allows you to easily find your favourite games. To add or remove games from your favourites, simply press the “Y” button on your controller. A selection of the best games for each console has already been made, but you can of course modify it as you wish by adding or removing games.
