La new version of Recalbox is now available to be downloaded or updated if you are using this system on your computer or Raspberry Pi. Well, through a statement the developers of Recalbox announced the availability of this new version along with its new features and bug fixes.

In this new version of Recalbox 18.06.27 highlights the inclusion of a new feature in which the system developers worked a lot to be able to port to the system. This new function is named NetPlay.

About NetPlay in Recalbox 18.06.27

This new function that we can find in this new version of Recalbox 18.06.27 It will allow us to enjoy the games of various retro titles online against another player who also has this function.

Basically what allows us to do this new function is the ability to play online games and get achievements from some of the titles supported by this function, as it were the current video game consoles.


net play not only can it be enjoyed by Recalbox users 18.06.27 if not what also those that have the updated version of Retroarch which also makes use of this function.

This NetPlay function can be activated from "Menu> Game Settings> Netplay Settings", in which we can assign a username, the port you will use to connect.

Also included in the interface is the possibility of being able to obtain the following information when being connected, in which we will be able to know if any of the retro game titles that we have are compatible or not for the online game.

The information we can obtain is:

  • Username (with a small icon if it is a game launched from Recalbox)
  • Country
  • Hash match (if you have the same ROM with the same hash in your games)
  • file match
  • Core
  • Connection latency and other information

In these results the information will be shown if it is possible to enter or create an online game based on the following colors:

  • Green: you have the good ROM with good hashing, the kernel is fine, chances are high that it will work
  • Blue: hash does not match (but some ROMS have no hash, for example arcade ROMS), but the file is on your system and the kernel is fine so it could be played online.
  • Red - no file found, unauthorized system, no central match - no chance for it to work (game will not launch).


About the new version of Recalbox 18.06.27

Between the other features and bug fixes that we can highlight in this new version of Recalbox 18.06.27 we find the correction of the full screen mode when using the N64 emulator mupen64plus.

By improving this the problem that the emulator had with some screen resolutions is eliminated, since previously the screen resolution had to be forced to avoid audio errors.

But with this fix, full screen mode is now possible.

Regarding the new features the warning message that is launched when executing the order to shut down the system can be highlighted.

With this, it will remind us that we must save our data and thus avoid losing them when performing a quick shutdown of the system.

This new version of Recalbox was updated to the new version of libretro-o2em.

And about customization added a new EASports intro to the system, as well as the splash screen duration option in recalbox.conf in which we can configure the time to play the splash videos.

    It's amazing what is being done with recalbox, I just bought the new raspberry pie 3 b + board and it is not compatible, I am eager that it can be used, since I sold my old board, now it's time to wait, I'm looking at all day in case something comes out.
