Adding Achievements to Nes

To get achievements working on the Nes core system.

Make a folder in your home directory and call it Quicknes.
After you have done that you need to Git Clone into that folder.

git clone https://github.com/libretro/QuickNES_Core.git

Next go ahead and compile the project:

Go to the QuickNES_Core folder and run the make file

cd QuickNES_Core
make

this will take a while

Loaded SSH on the PC and connected to your Pi.

Now after this is complete you will want to move

/home/pi/quicknes/QuickNES_Core/quicknes_libretro.so to /home/pi/quicknes/

Now you will want to edit

/opt/retropie/configs/nes/emulators.cfg

You will want to add this to line 4/Bottom of the page.

quicknes=”/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -L /home/pi/quicknes/quicknes_libretro.so –config /opt/retropie/configs/nes/retroarch.cfg %ROM%”

You will also want to edit line 2 to

default=”quicknes”

save and upload.

Now reload retropie and enjoy Nes with achievements.

Welcome

Hi, Welcome to my blog.

I have started this blog to keep a record of my RetroPie Nes build. I currently have a RP1 running RetroPie version 3.3.1. I have recentally enabled retroachievements  and i think its great that you can earn achievements on such old platforms.

I will update soon.
