If anyone is interested in knowing I just donated a GCW Zero to Twinaphex over at Libretro so if everything goes well there is probably going to be an official port of RetroArch over to it eventually.
Woah, awesome gesture! Lets hope some cores will be shaped up (targeting MIPS preferably).

@the_gama
I was just wondering if there are any updates on the status of the GCW Zero RetroArch port? Itís listed as a supported platform under http://www.retroarch.com/index.php?page=platforms# but when I click on either the Download or Installation instructions links all it does is reload the page. The only info I can find on it is this thread which hasnít been updated in a while and it was never added to http://www.gcw-zero.com/downloads.

Hello fidelis1, sorry for my late reply.  Unfortunately my gcw0 died somehow, it won't charge or turn on, so I cannot work on the port anymore.  The last thing I did manage to do was to merge the tempgba sources with the gpsp core.  I tested one AstroBoy game and it worked very well.

Anyway, I'm glad that you donated a gcw0 to one of the main developers of retroarch.  I hope he can do an official release now!

No worries thanks for getting back to me. Have you tried reflashing your GCW Zero using @pcercuei OpenDingux Rescue Disk? https://boards.dingoonity.org/gcw-releases/opendingux-rescue-disc-v0-1/

Unfortunately, It won't turn on even when I connect it to the PC.

Best.

Iím sorry to hear that. In the off chance itís an issue with the battery @Fanatic still has replacements in stock. https://retro-gaming-fanatic.com/products/gcw-zero-replacement-battery

I will open the zero tomorrow and check it.  But I remember the first time I opened it I broke the power switch :P.    After that I had to turn it on using the small reset button ...

After a ton of confusion with the post office Twinaphex finally received the GCW Zero I sent him. So here's to hoping he finds the time to start working on a GCW Zero RetroArch port soon.

That's cool. Is it still being updated though? I thought the EmulationStation project was abandoned by Aloshi.
