Batocera Linux free retro-gaming

Post by Azatotht »

Had time to kill over weekend and needed a small project so I tested Batocera for the first time.

I might be the only one who never heard of this before but figured I would mention it for others.

From their own website:
Batocera.linux is an open-source and completely free retro-gaming distribution that can be copied to a USB stick or an SD card with the aim of turning any computer/nano computer into a gaming console during a game or permanently. Batocera.linux does not require any modification on your computer.
This works surprisingly well, smoothest MAME build I have tested so far, works way better than having MAME on a Windows PC.

Recognized my Mayflash controller with no hassle and looks very nice on my 40 inches tv. No graphics lag either.

Cheers,

pas mal impressionnant de voir le nombre de versions / devices supportées. (https://batocera.org/download)

LF: GrooveCoaster Machine, shmups or any PCB, specifically Namco System 1 (Pacmania), let me know what you have!

Ils ont même commencé à supporter les racing wheels en plug and play.

Je l'ai mis sur une clé usb de 16Gb pour tester sur un vieux i5 sans carte vidéo dédiée.

J'ai pas testé grand-chose à date mais il y a pas mal d'options, c'est assez complet. Je voulais surtout voir ce quoi ça avait l'air et je vais le réinstaller sur un drive plus grand.
