This is a a new test version of the Sx05RE Kodi Addon for S905 and S912 running CoreELEC.
I removed the Libretro database file as it was the cause of the long installation time, if you need it you can reinstall it from within Retroarch.
I added PPSSPP, Reicast and Advancemame to this version, but please note that they work on the S905 but they might not work on S912, please let me know of any problems.
There is a setting in the Addon to start Emulationstation (default) or Retroarch.
roms should go into
/storage/roms/[system] (e.g. for NES games
You will need at least 650MB of space in /storage to be able to install this add-on, and that does not include ROMS but If you want to use an external HDD or a USB for your ROMS, make a directory called “roms” in the root of the USB device, then inside create an empty file called
sx05reroms, place your ROMS inside the corresponding folder (nes, snes, etc, etc.) then with the device plugged start the add-on.
some emulators require extra BIOS files, these should go into
/storage/roms/bios/ (or if using the USB/HDD inside
/roms/bios/) dreamcast bios goes into
Note: You need to enable external sources to be able to install this from zip, it takes about 4 minutes to install (lots of files), while its installing there will be no status update (not sure why) and it will look like Kodi is not doing anything but it is installing, be patient!
also, not all the options in the Emulationstation menu are working, they will be removed/fixed later.
Please let me know of any problems you find!
2.3.1 of the Sx05RE Add-on
There has been a few changes, but the most important is gamepad auto configuration for ES and Retroarch (still trying to figure out Advmame, PPSSPPSDL and Reicast) when you first set up your gamepad in Emulationstation it will also set up your gamepad in Retroarch with hotkeys and all!
(HK = Hotkey)
HK+Start - Quit to ES
HK+X - Retroarch Menu
HK+RB - Save state
HK+LB - Load state
HK+Dpad Left/Right - Select save slot
HK+B - Reset
Remember this add-on might still have issues, if you find any, please don’t hesitate to let me know!
