    Great Success!!! Thanks again! It seems as though my BIOS file may have been corrupted.

    Which version of RetroArch are you using. This is cool. Can you provide a link to your bios file please?

    I would if I could but I'm not sure if it would be a good idea to post that on Crackberry since it's sort of a rule in the emulation scene that people shouldn't post links to ROMS which may or may not be copyrighted material and we don't want to get Crackberry in trouble. It's a sort of legal grey area if I recall correctly. What I would say is that what you're looking for should be very easy to find if you really need a backup of the OS from your Console. It's definitely not rare nor obscure.

    I'm using BlackBerry 10 version 1.0.2.9 as well as 1.0.2.96. I prefer the default button layouts of 1.0.2.9 when using wiimotes and USB game controllers. It would be nice to have an updated version with updated cores like 1.0.2.96 but with the button layouts of 1.0.2.9. I even have version 0.0.9.9 from CatalystG installed.

    1.0.2.94, as long as it works with your keypad has the older control layout. I just changed it in .96 because games like Super Mario World or Donkey Kong have a lot of running and jumping in them and the Passport keypad has limitations in # of buttons that can be held down and pressed simultaneously. M to Enter and L to Backspace are an exemption and allow for one extra key to be pressed in a row in this situation. The remapping on every opening of the app is a deterrent and I never found a solution to it. A lot of people prefer 1.0.2.94 for this reason, for the default (Q10) controls.

    Is the final version about 1.0.2.96 ? The core of the game will be updated? I really hope you can add the NDS core,the BB10 doesn't have a good NDS simulator,and the drasticDS don't play.

    How can I actually input?

    I have the latest OS on my Blackberry Q10 (10.3...) and installed the latest nightly Android build of RetroArch. However...

    ...I connected my Wii Remote to the Blackberry Q10 just fine, complete with recognition. However, RetroArch does not want to recognise the Wii Remote.
    ...RetroArch does not seem to want to recognise the keyboard, whether detecting the keys on custom binds or detecting the keyboard inputs after putting them manually from the selection menu.

    If you mean how they're only on the bottom half of the screen, even though it shouldn't matter on the Passport, select Landscape mode to get the control overlay to at least fill the screen..

    They're still stretched looking tho I think maybe because they were made for the z10 or with a candybar shaped phone in mind..

    Out of curiosity, why do you want to use the touchsreen inputs when you can use the Passport keyboard?

    RetroArch is using *.srm for save files.. Maybe try renaming the extension? I really don't know though.

    I know it might be answered already but there's over two dozen pages. I have a shop BlackBerry Z30 with native pre installed from factory 10.3.1 on it.

    Which emulator works flawless on it with a Moga game pad that is compatible with L2 / R2? Thank you.

    Really want to play some Crash Team Racing and Silent Hill. And if it can handle it, then Goldeneye too.

    It has been mentioned by several CrackBerry members that the Moga controller is supposed to be working with Mupen64+-BB, PPSSPP and RetroArch. Not sure about PS1 games though but the N64-Goldeneye should work.

    Any word on whether the Devs are going to continue to toil away on our behalf??

    I'd still love to see a native version with some smoothing in the keyboard controls for the Passport.

    ...and then of course for the slider version.

    Using the MOGA controller in HID mode on devices running 10.3.1 causes Cascades apps, Hub, and a few other things to ignore touch input. That's going to pose a problem for a lot of apps including RA. BlackBerry finally acknowledged the issue and let me know they assigned someone to investigate the problem, but for now expect issues unless you feel like rolling back to an earlier OS like 10.3.0.

    You may also be disappointed to hear the latest in my experience, even when the MOGA did work properly with BB10, RA and other apps never did support the L2/R2 buttons.

    So, if I want to use a Moga game pad, have access to all the buttons and play emulators on my Z30 on 10.3.1, what's my best option? Thank you.

    Anyone else running this on a Q5? I was worried it might be a little underspec'd but it's like the tiniest snes, psx, nes/gb with keypad controls I've ever played and it plays those systems pretty flawlessly

    It stumbles a bit on GBA but that's no big deal..

    I'm on 10.2 out of the box with it tho and wonder if anyone has a report on how it's working on Q510.3.X. Reason I ask is that Z30 and Passport can actually be a little stuttering and crash sometimes on opening with OS 10.3 :|

    I've only used RetroArch since 10.3.1. and it works great. Yes, it crashes on startup from time to time but I can live with that. Played through the first levels of SMB3 once again and I'm not aware of any stuttering. Is PSX support really that good?

    Edit: Ok, tried again. Mario stutters in some frenzy situations, Yoshi's Island is worse. I guess it depends on the game. But I prefer the original NES/SNES over the GBA ports anyway - better graphics, sound and perfomance. Even own a GBA for that.

    Incredibly impressive actually, on the Q5. I was surprised to see this as I had some performance issues with psx on the Z30 / 10.3.1 that I chalked up to it just being not as powerful as the Passport (although Z30 and Passport can do the high resolution setting at full speed which the Q5 slows down with but is not all as beneficial to the Q5s small res screen anyway). The Z30 will run smooth as silk too but just got bad periodic performance (Passport too) like something was throttling the system and have had general visual choppiness in the UI of the OS even.. I tried airplane mode and oddly even battery saving mode set on which made it run better even though it's limiting the cpu to an extent..

    It's just a nice surprise to see the Q5 with its underclocked speed do so well with the systems I use most since I've tried emulators on computers that had "higher" clock rates and not had as good, solid playable performance as this

    I do suspect 10.2 has a hand in it and I'd be interested to hear how the Q5 on 10.3 is doing as I think maybe that the newer os is using more variable cpu or battery saving tech/settings and junk. Even the Passport had audio crackling issues for me and a couple others on un-intensive things such as the Gameboy emulator that I found would subside if the frame or refresh rate was set lower.. iirc the RetroArch team had wrote somewhere that a replacement audio driver was slated or in the works for improvement........
