I have a 4K+ and upgraded to the April update yesterday. I’ve been searching for a how-to on game emulators for Kodi 18. Here’s what I have done:
I have an 8bitdo N30Pro Bluetooth controller that I was able to pair by going into the OSMC program plugin. After I paired the controller, a pop-up came up for me to “map” my controller to existing controller profiles. I wasn’t sure what I was doing at that point so I mapped a NES controller and that’s it. I have no idea how to trigger that pop-up again to initiate other controller mappings.
I reviewed a post in the Testing section that showed certain cores that work well. Specifically I was looking at the NES section and turned on QuickNES (enabled the addon).
I did some searches and found the Internet Archive Game Launcher (IAGL) addon. I installed the addon, and started up a NES file. I was able to launch, and start one of them (Super Mario Bros). However, after a few seconds of playing I got the sad face. To be specific, I hit a power up (mushroom) and right after that I got the sad face. I was able to reproduce this behavior.
I started experimenting with other NES cores. None of the other cores would even load the file.
Am I going down the right path here? Apologies for no logs since I’m at work here but I’d like to hear what other people’s experiences are. Should I not use IAGL, are there other alternatives?
