Adding Your Own Games

Found a game that isn't already included? You can add it to your RetroPie's storage solution all on your own.

  1. Remove the MicroSD card from the RetroPie.
  2. Use a MicroSD to SD adapter card, this is not included with your kit.
  3. Insert the SD adapter into your computer, once the device is detected it should prompt you to open it.
  4. Now you can copy the ROM file of the game you want to add into the appropriately named system folder.
    1. (e.g., n64 = Nintendo 64, gbc = Game Boy Color)
  5. Once copied over, reinsert your MicroSD into the RetroPie and restart it, the new game will be detected and listed.
