New Release Overview video
Watch this video from Patton Plays who explains the new features and how to use them
If you have an old RetroArch Neo build installed, just download and install on top. It is automatic. If you have a different version you will need to uninstall before installing the latest Neo.
1.7.3b – July 2018
Please note: We have removed the extension renaming so new saves for certain cores are not backwards compatible with old RA versions
Please note: NES cores are no longer bundled with RA. You will need to download them seperately from HR.com or the ModStore
Please note: Standalone RetroArch Saves will be located in your saves under CLV-RETROARCH
- Huge amount of optimisation and streamlining reduced deployed package size by over half! (Complete RA now only ~5mb compared to ~12mb)
