    RETROARCH CONSOLE
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    v0.9.8.4
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    * [NEStopia] Famicom Disk System support. For Android users - put disksys.rom
    into the same folder as the FDS ROM you're trying to load. For everyone else -
    put disksys.rom into your system directory.
    - Y Button will switch sides of a disk.
    - If you get any problems of the sort DISK A / B ERR 07' - pressing Y button again or letting it run its course should do it.
    - NOTE - Famicom Disk System loading is slow, so you might be tempted to fast forward through most of it. However, I'd advise caution when doing so and to savestate regularly in case 'fast forwarding' can negatively affect disk loading.
    * [FBA core] Various changes/fixes
    - Hook up Eco Fighters controls (Turn 1/Turn 2 bound to L and R buttons)
    - Hook up Pnickie controls (Turn 1/Turn 2 bound to L and R buttons - press
    one of the buttons to progress beyond start screen)

    and also PC-Engine/TurboGrafx 16/SuperGrafx.

    FB Alpha (for Windows), can currently be obtained from barryharris.me.uk.

    What is FB Alpha Retro Loader ?

    FB Alpha RL is a PS3 homebrew application coded from scratch,
    and not based in any other public source code by other
    developers. It is a result of many hours of dedication
    and research.

    It is in no way a dirty hack of RetroArch or something
    similar. By the contrary, FB Alpha RL serves as a independent
    frontend to RetroArch and provides features not incorporated
    in it.

    I did had to make a modified RetroArch core to be included
    along my application, so it could process the arguments
    or new commands that FB Alpha RL will be sending to it.

    Objective of FB Alpha RL (Retro Loader):

    As a dev from the official FB Alpha Team,
    FB Alpha RL was made with a objective in mind, to
    keep the original experience from the official
    FB Alpha (for Windows OS) on the PS3 system.

    Please, read the technical info for more details.

    Technical Info:

    Signed for CFW 3.40 / 4.XX (should work for everyone).
    Tested @ 1080p / 720p / 480p resolution via HDMI.

    FB Alpha RL uses a custom "burn_drivers.h" header file
    that was generated by modifying the official windows
    version of FB Alpha with a routine to generate such
    file on launch.

    The header have a big structure with all the information
    for all supported drivers in FB Alpha v0.2.97.28.
    Information such as:

    - Romset Name (Ex. kof2002)
    - Parent ROM (Ex. sf2)
    - Year
    - Manufacturer (Ex. Capcom)
    - System (Ex. Neo Geo)
    - Max players
    - Game Screen Resolution
    - Game Screen Aspect Ratio

    Future release will have a custom generated header with
    all the ROM information as well, so the application will
    be able to verify every romset with precise CRC32 checks
    (as in the official FB Alpha for Windows).

    NOTE: You don't need the official RetroArch installed,
    this already has my own modified build incorporated
    into FB Alpha RL installation directory. So you can safely
    install the official RetroArch and it won't interfere.
