This is mostly a bug fix release.

a notable change is that the add-on will now appear in the "Game" section of Kodi

Please remove the old add-on before installing this one, also make sure you delete the following folders if they exists.

/storage/.config/amiberry
/storage/.emulationstation
/storage/.config/retroarch

Don't forget to make a backup copy of those folders if you want to restore your changes.

It's been a while since an official release of an add-on version of EmuELEC but its finally here!

There are a LOT of changes to even attempt to write a change log, including fixed and now working stand alone emulators like Amiberry, Hatari, Reicast and a LOT of bug fixes.

I STRONGLY advise that you delete the old version first (either sx05re or emuelec), and the /storage/.emulationstation folder as well, since this one is now a symlink for ease of access and updating.

This should work on CoreELEC 9.2 and up, but I suggest you use the newest one available in nightlies

Please keep in mind, it is still mostly myself working on EmuELEC and I only work on it on my spare free time, so I have very little time to fully test everything but if you find any sort of problem please don't hesitate to open an Issue, check out the (very WIP) wiki https://github.com/shantigilbert/EmuELEC/wiki (which you can also help by adding or editing it!) but there is not much there for the add-on yet, or you can also join us in discord: https://discord.gg/cbgtJTu

P.S. Version numbers are in par with the stand-alone version of EmuELEC you didn't miss any others :)

script.emuelec.Amlogic.launcher-3.1-Amlogic.zip is for S905/S912
script.emuelec.Amlogic-ng.launcher-3.1-Amlogic-ng.zip is for S922x/s905x2/A311D

EmuELEC v3.1

Mostly bug fixes and emulator updates, but there is also a new feature that many have asked for, choosing emulators per game!

  • Change emulator per system: On the main menu select "GAME SETTINGS" > "ADVANCED" > [Choose system] > "EMULATOR"

  • Change emulator per game: Navigate to the game you want to choose emu for, press select on the gamepad (Game options menu) choose "ADVANCED GAME OPTIONS" > "EMULATOR"

@shantigilbert shantigilbert released this Oct 27, 2019

Huge update!

New look, new logo (by Prizco), and intro video (by ElF0rma) included!

Emulationstation now has many new options coming from Batocera-emulationstation and adapted for EmuELEC

Notable features include:

  • Game Settings: You can set some setting that are used on Retroarch directly on this menu, can be set (by priority) per game, per system or globally
  • Background music has been upgraded and it now shows the titles, music still goes into /storage/roms/BGM
  • Bluetooth controllers! Easy to pair Bluetooth controllers (still need a keybord or other gamepad first)
  • Wifi has been revamped, you can still use the old method (By script in setup) or use the on-screen-keyboard to connect to WiFi directly from ES!
  • ES Built-in scraper is now working, but Skyscrapper and Selph's scraper are still included
  • Themes and Bezels can now be downloaded directly from ES (in menu: system settings, updates)
  • Multi language support!
  • Many other new features and small changes!

Fixes:

All platforms:

  • OpenBOR: Removed gl4es, it now uses less resources to run
  • ResidualVM is now included, put roms in /storage/roms/residualvm, use the included "Scan ResidualVM games" script to populate the list (see note 1)
  • ScummVM now includes a "Scan ScummVM Games" script to populate the list
  • Fixed Amiberry sound
  • Almost all emulators/cores updated to current versions
  • ComicBook theme has a bug that would play multiple videos at the same time so it has been replaced by es-theme-carbon (Fabrice Carusos's version)

S905

  • Fixed Reicast sound issue

Many more small bug fixes and changes, check the git history for those.

Note 1: ResidualVM still has a small bug where the pointer in GUI will not show, so you might need a keyboard to run some games, after the game has started you can use the gamepad without an issue.

IMPORTANT: Because of how many new changes have been introduced it is best to start on a fresh install!
