Installed on Win7 64 pro, here are the first things I noticed:

1. Some sort of bug with xbox 360 usb controller - when you select something in the menu, it doesn't know that you released the button, it keeps registering the button press. Its like the "turbo button" feature of the old NES premium joysticks. Auto repeat in full effect.

2. Installed Bsnes Accuracy, tried to load DKC, and xbmc froze. Needed restart.

Thats as far as I could get.

i think i found the lines that need to be changed. i ordered a 360 controller and a dualshock 3, when they ship i'll get that working.

Assuming I am setting this up correctly, I get the same result.

I am assuming that setup is, download emulator, install emulator, in XBMC select rom, select addon that relates to the emulator you are using. Configure addon's "external system folder" to point to the folder of the emulator's.exe.

If I'm wrong, please let me know.

i created "just-in-time" emulator installation to bring the video experience to games. how awful would it be if you had a choose a codec before playing a video?? no, simply find a rom and hit enter. XBMC will do everything possible to automate the process. if you have no emulators, xbmc will install one and then continue launching the game as if nothing happened. if you bail and go to the add-on manager, fart around for a few minutes, and then install a compatible emulator from there, xbmc will recognize that the emulator was installed as part of the game launching process and ask if you would like to continue launching the game. if the emulator wants a system folder, xbmc will ask you to choose one as part of the game launching process. if it doesn't want a system folder, you'll never need to worry about what a system folder is. emulator pre-configuration will be a thing of the past.

no, the entire documentation of RetroPlayer can be summed up as follow: find a game, hit enter, fight villains and vanquish evil Smile
