Specific system information

Force Cap32 core to use a specific command line when running a game

Cap32 libretro core offers an "autorun" fonctionnality that would automatically type the command line to execute the game in the Amstrad BIOS. However, in some cases for .dsk files, the command line might be incorrect.

To solve this issue, it is possible to use a .m3u file to force a different command line, proceed as follows:

Create a .m3u file with any text editor and specify: - the command line to be executed - the filename of your game


Commando (Europe).dsk

With this file, RetroBat will inform the emulator to run the "Commando (Europe).dsk" file and to write the command line RUN"COMMANDO.BIN

Once the .m3u is created, you can run it from within RetroBat with the Cap32 core.
