Updating Cores And Emulators – LaunchBox Tutorial

what's going on guys the CTA Prime back here again with another launch box tutorial today I'm gonna show you well I'm actually gonna remind you to update your cores and update your emulators now this isn't totally mandatory if everything you got is working fine then you really don't need to do this but a lot of these new updates for the retro art scores and standalone emulator cores add better compatibility some games didn't work and let's say version 1.2 but they now work in version 1.3 but in the end it's really up to you like they say if it ain't broke don't fix it unfortunately there's no magic button that you can click and update everything at one time so we kind of got to go through our emulators and see what we got first thing I want to show you is how to update retroarch cores now you can always go to the libretto website and download the newest core pack and throw it in your cores folder but I usually just go to emulators open up my retroarch because personally I don't use every single core here and I don't want every single core downloaded the first thing I do is head to online updater update core info files and this isn't mandatory but I always update databases just to be safe now that those are updated we're gonna go to core up dater so like I said I don't use every Korn retroarch and I know which cores I use in which course I don't so I can just kind of scroll through here and first up so first up a core I've been using a lot lately is the raycast chord Naomi atomiswave and Dreamcast so I'm just gonna hover over it press ENTER it's gonna download the newest version of that core another one I use a lot as Genesis plus GX so basically this is an easy way to pick and choose which ones you would like to update you just go through find the chord that you use and update it next up I'm going to show you how I update my standalone emulators I'm gonna go to my emulators folder inside of my launchbox folder and one that I noticed was really out of date was ppsspp this is the PSP emulator I'm just gonna launch it real quick the version that I've been using for a long time is version 1.4 well if I head over to the website version 1.7 for has been released so all I'm gonna do is download 1.74 I'm going to find the correct download I'm gonna shut this down I'm just gonna drag it to my desktop you can put it wherever you want I'm going to extract it and all I'm gonna do is take everything out of this new 1.74 place it right in here so now when I launch ppsspp I'm going to be on the latest version 1.74 instead of version 1.4 and basically that's what you're gonna have to do to update all of your emulators like I said this isn't totally mandatory but it can help with performance in some cases so that's why I wanted to go through and update everything that I could so that's pretty much it for this video guys I really appreciate you watching this was more of a PSA than a tutorial but I just wanted to kind of get this out there because I noticed a lot of my stuff was out of date and possibly yours could be also if you could hit that like button subscribe to the channel like always thanks for watching you
