Retroarch for GameCube

Post by alex90 » Fri Jan 26, 2018 9:30 am

How well do the emulators in retroarch perform nowadays? Should I use Retroarch or should I omit it and only use standalone emulators?

Use standalone emulators when you can, retroarch on the GameCube is crap.

I would greatly appreciate if someone could point out the currently most compatible emulator available for each system?

I have no idea for the others. I feel like running emulators on the GC is kinda pointless because everything is at my desk where I have my computer that does it better. Even in a living room setup, there are plenty of other, more suitable systems with a faster CPU and more RAM like the Raspberry Pi or even the Xbox, if not an HTPC.

This is almost a must for those who like to use emulators.
