Today I’m excited to show off the new RetroRun frontend update for ArkOS, which dramatically improves Sega Dreamcast performance on the RG351P, RG351M, RGB10, OGA, and more. It also provides significant improvements to Sega Saturn emulation, even making a few games actually playable 🙂
Important links for this update:
ArkOS wiki page with information about required bios, file types, and everything else needed to install ArkOS and load the games to your system.
Sega Performance Google Sheet with performance ratings for games tested on an RG351P
An compilation of cute cat videos to download and watch while downloading/installing your games
Note that this is a barebones emulator frontend, and as such, there are no menu options, or save states, etc. But luckily the VMU game saves work perfectly, like they did for the original console.
Notes for developers and the adventurous:
ChristianHaitian, the developer of ArkOS, has several tools available if you want to compile a custom version of RetroRun yourself.
Look here for a VM, and here are compile instructions. Additionally, here is information on how to alter the button configuration, and where to configure RetroRun settings to match your RetroArch preferences. For further support, come join the Retro Game Handhelds discord.
