Install

Copy the entire directory (retroarch-wii) to your SD card in your 'apps' directory. Start up the Homebrew Channel and start up RetroArch Wii from there.

On first startup, RetroArch will create a folder in the root of your storage device called 'retroarch'. All RetroArch configuration files are stored here.

You can now select a ROM that this core supports and load it in the Filebrowser.

Selecting Cores

RetroArch will select one of the dozen or so emulator/game cores on start-up. The name of the core currently loaded will be shown at the bottom side of the screen. To select a different core - go to the Settings menu (see 'Ingame controls'). Select the option 'Core' and hit the A button. A filebrowser will appear where you can select a different core. Press A to switch to the emulator/game core.

After doing so, select 'Restart RetroArch' to load the newly selected core.

Controls

RetroArch Wii will create a new input config file for each core you load. All input settings will be saved when RetroArch exits.

NOTE: When starting up a new core for the first time, you might have to first initialize the input settings. Go to the Settings menu (see 'Ingame controls') and go to 'Controller #number config'. Re-set the 'Device' by going back and forth between a previous device. The controls will be automatically applied.

This only has to be done once per core.
