RetroArch 1.8.5 released
If you’ve ever dabbled in emulation, you’ve probably heard of RetroArch at least once as it’s a front-end that allows you to manage & run dozens of emulators and game engines using so-called cores. Other than simply being a convenient way to play games from multiple retro systems, it also comes with a whole slew of features including support for screen filters, a runahead feature to reduce input latency, a common UI for all cores, the ability to create game playlists and many more. However, its high popularity is probably a result of its availability on many hacked consoles such as the PSVita, Switch, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 (currently unofficial), Wii (U), 3DS not to mention support for Windows [back to Windows 95], macOS and Linux!
