You can also enjoy features like online multiplayer, achievements, shaders, bezels, rewind, save states, cheats, and more.


In this article, we will show you how to install Recalbox on your PC using a USB flash drive or an external hard drive. We will also show you how to add games and emulators to Recalbox, as well as how to customize and optimize it for the best gaming experience. Let's get started!


What You Need to Install Recalbox on Your PC




Before you can install Recalbox on your PC, you need to make sure that your PC meets the minimum hardware requirements. Here is what you need:



  • A PC with a 64-bit processor (Intel or AMD) and at least 2 GB of RAM



  • A graphics card that supports OpenGL 3.3 or higher (Nvidia, AMD, or Intel)



  • A monitor or TV with HDMI input



  • A USB flash drive or an external hard drive with at least 8 GB of storage space



  • A Recalbox image file for PC 64 bits



If your PC meets these requirements, then you are good to go. However, if you want to improve your gaming performance and compatibility, you may want to consider upgrading some of your hardware components. Here are some recommendations:



  • A SSD instead of a HDD for faster loading times



  • A larger USB flash drive or external hard drive for more storage space



  • A dedicated graphics card instead of an integrated one for better graphics quality



  • A wireless or wired controller instead of a keyboard for better gameplay



Once you have your PC ready, you need to download the Recalbox image file for PC 64 bits. This is a compressed file that contains the Recalbox operating system and all the necessary files to run it. You can download it from the official Recalbox website or from a torrent link. The file size is about 6.5 GB, so it may take some time to download depending on your internet speed.


How to Download and Flash Recalbox on Your PC




After you have downloaded the Recalbox image file, you need to flash it to your USB flash drive or external hard drive. This means that you need to copy the image file to the drive and make it bootable. To do this, you need a software that can flash image files, such as Etcher, Rufus, or Win32 Disk Imager. You can download any of these software from their respective websites for free.


For this tutorial, we will use Etcher as an example, but you can use any other software that you prefer. Here are the steps to flash Recalbox on your PC using Etcher:



  • Launch Etcher and click on "Select image". Browse to the folder where you saved the Recalbox image file and select it.



  • Click on "Select target" and choose your USB flash drive or external hard drive from the list. Make sure you select the correct drive and that it has enough space for the image file.



  • Click on "Flash!" and wait for the process to complete. This may take several minutes depending on the size of the image file and the speed of your drive.



  • When the flashing is done, you will see a message saying "Flash complete!". You can now safely eject your USB flash drive or external hard drive from your PC.



Congratulations, you have successfully flashed Recalbox on your PC. You are now ready to boot and configure it.

The exact steps may vary depending on your PC model and manufacturer, but here are some general guidelines:

How to Add Games and Emulators to Recalbox




Recalbox comes with a large collection of games and emulators for various platforms, but you can also add your own games and emulators to Recalbox. To do this, you need to understand how the Recalbox file system and folders work.


The Recalbox file system is divided into two partitions: the system partition and the share partition. The system partition contains the Recalbox operating system and its configuration files. You should not modify this partition unless you know what you are doing. The share partition contains the games, bios, saves, screenshots, videos, music, and other files that you can add or delete. This is the partition that you will use to transfer games and emulators to Recalbox.


The share partition has several folders, each corresponding to a different platform or function. For example, the roms folder contains subfolders for each emulator, such as atari2600, nes, snes, psx, etc. The bios folder contains the bios files for some emulators that require them, such as psx, neogeo, etc. The saves folder contains the save files for your games, such as .srm, .state, etc. The screenshots folder contains the screenshots that you take while playing games. The videos folder contains the videos that you record while playing games. The music folder contains the music that you can play on Recalbox using Kodi.


To add games and emulators to Recalbox, you need to transfer them to the appropriate folders on the share partition. There are two main ways to do this: using a file explorer or using a SSH client.


How to transfer games from your PC to Recalbox using a file explorer




This is the easiest way to transfer games from your PC to Recalbox. You just need to connect your PC and Recalbox to the same network (wired or wireless) and use a file explorer (such as Windows Explorer or Finder) to access the share partition of Recalbox. Here are the steps to do this:



  • On your PC, open a file explorer and type \\recalbox\share in the address bar. Press Enter.



  • You will see a list of folders on the share partition of Recalbox. Navigate to the folder where you want to transfer your games or emulators.



  • Copy and paste or drag and drop your games or emulators from your PC to the folder on Recalbox. Make sure that your games or emulators are in the correct format and have the correct extension for each platform.



  • Wait for the transfer to complete. You can check the progress on the bottom right corner of your file explorer.



You have now transferred games from your PC to Recalbox using a file explorer. You can repeat this process for any other games or emulators that you want to add.


How to transfer games from your PC to Recalbox using a SSH client




This is another way to transfer games from your PC to Recalbox. You need to use a SSH client (such as PuTTY or WinSCP) to remotely access the share partition of Recalbox. This method may be faster and more reliable than using a file explorer, but it requires some technical knowledge and skills. Here are the steps to do this:



  • On your PC, download and install a SSH client of your choice.



  • Launch the SSH client and enter the following information:



  • Host name: recalbox



  • User name: root



  • Password: recalboxroot



  • Port: 22



  • Click on "Connect" or "Open" and wait for the connection to be established.



  • You will see a window or a panel that shows the files and folders on the share partition of Recalbox. Navigate to the folder where you want to transfer your games or emulators.



  • Copy and paste or drag and drop your games or emulators from your PC to the folder on Recalbox. Make sure that your games or emulators are in the correct format and have the correct extension for each platform.



  • Wait for the transfer to complete. You can check the progress on the bottom left corner of your SSH client.



You have now transferred games from your PC to Recalbox using a SSH client. You can repeat this process for any other games or emulators that you want to add.


How to Scan and Launch Games on Recalbox




After you have transferred games to Recalbox, you need to scan them and launch them on Recalbox. Scanning games will create a playlist for each platform and display the game titles, covers, and metadata on the Recalbox menu. Launching games will start the emulator and load the game. Here are the steps to scan and launch games on Recalbox:



  • On Recalbox, press Start on your keyboard or controller and go to Game Settings > Update Games Lists. This will scan all the games on the share partition and create playlists for each platform.



  • When the scanning is done, you will see a message saying "Game lists updated!". Press A on your controller or Enter on your keyboard to return to the main menu.



  • You will see a list of platforms on the left side of the screen. Use the left and right buttons on your controller or keyboard to scroll through the platforms. You will see the games for each platform on the right side of the screen. Use the up and down buttons on your controller or keyboard to scroll through the games.



  • To launch a game, select it with the A button on your controller or Enter on your keyboard. The emulator will start and load the game. To exit a game, press Hotkey + Start on your controller or Esc on your keyboard. The Hotkey is usually the Select button on your controller, but you can change it in the Controller Settings menu.



You have now scanned and launched games on Recalbox. You can enjoy playing your favorite retro games and discover new ones.


How to Add More Emulators and Cores to Recalbox




Recalbox comes with a large selection of emulators and cores for various platforms, but you can also add more emulators and cores to Recalbox. Emulators are software that mimic the hardware and software of a specific platform, such as Nintendo 64 or PlayStation. Cores are plugins that run inside an emulator and provide different features and compatibility for each platform, such as Mupen64Plus or PCSX-ReARMed.


To add more emulators and cores to Recalbox, you need to download them from the internet and transfer them to the appropriate folders on the share partition of Recalbox. You can find many emulators and cores online, but you need to make sure that they are compatible with Recalbox and that they have a .so extension. You also need to make sure that you have the bios files for some emulators that require them, such as psx, neogeo, etc.


Here are some examples of websites where you can download emulators and cores for Recalbox:



  • Libretro: This is the official website of RetroArch, a frontend for emulators that runs most of the cores on Recalbox. You can download cores from this website by selecting Linux as the platform and x86_64 as the architecture.



  • EmuCR: This is a website that provides daily updates of various emulators and cores for different platforms. You can download emulators and cores from this website by selecting Linux as the platform and x86_64 as the architecture.



  • EmulationStation: This is another frontend for emulators that runs some of the standalone emulators on Recalbox. You can download emulators from this website by selecting Linux as the platform.



Here are the steps to add more emulators and cores to Recalbox:



  • On your PC, download the emulator or core that you want to add from one of the websites mentioned above or from another source. Make sure that it has a .so extension and that it is compatible with Recalbox.



  • Transfer the emulator or core file to the share partition of Recalbox using a file explorer or a SSH client. Depending on whether it is a standalone emulator or a core, you need to transfer it to one of these folders:



  • If it is a standalone emulator, transfer it to /recalbox/share/emulators/



  • If it is a core, transfer it to /recalbox/share/libretro/cores/



  • If it is a core, you may also need to transfer the info file that contains the metadata of the core to /recalbox/share/libretro/info/. You can usually find the info file in the same folder or archive as the core file.



  • If the emulator or core requires a bios file, transfer it to /recalbox/share/bios/. Make sure that the bios file has the correct name and checksum for each platform. You can find a list of bios files and their requirements on the Recalbox wiki.



  • Restart Recalbox to apply the changes. You can do this by pressing Start on your keyboard or controller and going to Quit > Restart System.



You have now added more emulators and cores to Recalbox. You can access them from the main menu and play games that are compatible with them.
