RetroArch icon





RetroArch is fast, light and comfortable multi-system emulator, modular and command-line driven. Real-time rewinding, game-aware shading based on libretro API and most of its other features are unique and hardly can be found on other emulators.

Not stable version.


  • Multiple emulators
  • Advanced GPU shader support - A multi-pass post-processing shader pipeline allows efficient use of image scaling algorithms, emulation of complex CRT, NTSC video artifacts and other effects
  • Dynamic Rate Control to synchronize video and audio while smoothing out timing imperfections
  • FFmpeg recording - Built-in support for lossless video recording using FFmpeg's libavcodec
  • Gamepad abstraction layer called Retropad
  • Gamepad auto-configuration - Zero-configuration needed from the user after plugging a gamepad in
  • Peer-to-peer netplay that uses a rollback technique similar to GGPO
  • Audio DSP plugins like an equalizer, reverb, and other effects
  • Advanced savestate features - Automatic savestate loading, disabling SRAM overwriting, etc.
  • Libretro database of cores, games, cheats, etc.
  • OpenGL and Vulkan API support.
  • And more

  • Known Issues

    • The buttons are invisible but they work as they should when you find these buttons
    • Some users can have a problem with launching ROMs in Retroarch
