your plugin is great. Since a few days I'm doing nothing else than playing old ROMs. Thank you!

What I don't understand so far is the part about the Additional Emulators. I've added the dolphin core to Retroarch and selected it as Additional Emulator 1. Its App Location I set to the same value as the Retroarch App Location.

But what do I have to do then? How can I launch it? How can I select the ROMs I have in the folder 'GameCube' beneath the other ROM folders? Do I have to write my own xml files to use it?
The additional emulators are optional / non-retroarch emulators.  You can install say Dolphin or PJ64 standalone programs and use them with IARL if you want to.  Retroarch covers 100% of all the systems that IARL comes with by default though, so those are not really required.  Of the other emulators I would suggest though, FS-UAE works well with Amiga, much better than the retroarch core, which is still a WIP.

If you have ROMS on your local machine and want to launch them with Dolphin, check out the AEL addon.  That should do what you're looking for.

So the additional emulators are intended to be used only with ROMs from archive.org and to replace a specific Retroarch core? As you're using Dolphin as example: are there GC and Wii ROMs on archive.org?

I like the idea of having only one ROM folder and, ideally, only one plugin to play them. Moreover I already tried to setup the ROM Collection Browser, but without success. It generates its nfo-files in the same folders where the ROMs are and IARL then tries to run the nfo-files, instead of the n64-files.

I didn't try AEL, yet.

You're correct, IARL does not come with any game lists specific to Dolphin.  Rom Collection browser, as far as I know, isn't maintained anymore.
The nfo thing sounds like a bug I can fix, i'll look into that.

Hello,   I love the addon.    Is it possible to add NeoGeo console as a system?  I found an archive for it.  For some reason I cant PM you.

 Yes!  I'm working on an update to IARL, to add an 'extras' section, where you can download extra game lists (that aren't in the default IARL listing).  My hope is to eventually be able to come up with some way people can upload their favorites lists for others to browse through.  So far the lists the 'extras' section will include are:
The unfiltered game lists (I'll then be deleting them from the addon and then users can just download them from the extras section if they want them)
Further filtered/categorized game lists for the ones already included in IARL like Neo Geo / CPS1 / CPS2 / Family Friendly (no adult games) from MAME & FBA
Some curated favorites lists like 'every mario game', etc.
Any other 'extra' game list ideas please let me know

Where can I enter my user and PW for archive.org?
I enabled the login, but there was no window, where I could enter the credentials
Thx
