Retroarch on android
« on: April 29, 2014, 21:01:04 PM »
Does anyone use this? Iv recently got the majority of mega cd games working on it on my htc one. Pretty AWSOME to have it fully working on a phone

The controls are unfortunately on screen, but I have plugged a ps3 pad into the USB port using an otg cable and that does work. It's just cool to see them boot up and run on a phone

I've never used this.  Have you tried to see if a Bluetooth Controller works?

No I haven't but I'm pretty sure they do. I know the ps3 pad will work Bluetooth but the phone needs to be routed

That's what concerns me, how playable are the games without an external device?

I find on screen controls are not that bothersome with turn based RPG's and strategy titles but forget it with action games.  At least that has been my experience.

For anyone that uses Retroarch on any system I've designed some Borders for various systems.
