About the new version of Recalbox
In this new edition of Recalbox 18.06.27, the EASports intro has been added to the system on the occasion of the Soccer World Cup in Russia.
We can also highlight that the Recalbox developers made a lot of effort in the development of this new version because they have included a new feature that more than one user of the distribution will like.
New online game feature
The new feature is Netplay which integrate Retroarch to the system and with this feature you can play your retro games online and unlock achievements as do current video game consoles.
This new feature you can enable it in "Menu> Game Settings> Netplay Settings" From here, you can enable and disable Netplay, configure your Netplay username, choose a port.
You can also add CRC32 hash to your game list to get a better match in the Netplay lobby.
Netplay has a GUI for client mode and an option to boot as hostWith this you will be able to generate a list of available titles and with support to be able to use this function.
When executing this GUI it will show us different data of which we find:
- Username (with a small icon if it is a game launched from Recalbox)
- Hash match (if you have the same ROM with the same hash in your games)
- File match
- Connection latency and other information
Changes in Recalbox
Within of the other changes that we can find in this new version we can highlight, la modification of the clock, now it is not limited to a local time but it was configured with GTM time.
As well I know better the process of updating and selection of emulators within the system this avoids starting the graphical user interface and displaying the default values.
Finally, it can also be noted that since this new version Recalbox will show the games contained within a folder as one more title and not as a folder, with this, navigation between them is streamlined and avoid being entered between folders to run the game.
As well added the function "Refresh game list" which you can use directly from the system menu.
