Romsets

This page contains our custom drop-in romsets for Recalbox. After it has been downloaded, you just need to paste the files in the appropriate folder and refresh the game list. Everything is sorted, which means there will be no duplicate games and all games will be scraped.

 

Game selection process

Features USA romsets with English games in priority. Country exclusive releases from Europe, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Brazil and Sweden included (in order). Country exclusive releases from Asia, Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan included and translated to English (in order). Japan systems contain English or playable games by an English speaker.

Roms are named with the no-intro naming convention. Roms are compressed with the highest level of compression. Multi cd-roms/diskettes games are in sub-folders to appear one time on your game list. Game name is as it is on the game box. Prototype and Unlicensed games are labeled in the game list. Clean gamelist.xml, doesn’t contain orphan entries.

Latest revision of a rom is prioritized. Unlicensed and prototype games are included only if they haven’t been released officially. Clone roms (demos, duplicates, alternate, public domain, pirate, hack, trained, etc) are excluded. Non-games such as action replay, test cartridge, program, etc are excluded.

 

Romset version changelog

The version number for each set is identified so you can determine if a set has been updated that way you can come back later to see if you have the latest version, as we’ll be updating our romsets frequently. If you see something like 2.13 the last number indicate that the same modification have been done 3 times. So in the case of 2.13, we “added, modified or removed” games 3 times.

V2.0 –
 All roms are CRC checked and should work

V1.3 – New rom/iso format to save disk space
V1.2 –

Sony Playstation - Fullset - 1700 Games - V1.3

This is a big file containing more than 600gb of data. For that reason I didn’t want to rename any file so it have scraped as-is leaving 65 games not scraped. It’s still a decent as 99% of the set is scraped. Note that 157 games are zipped which is normal being a FTP character restriction on the ‘ character. Just search for zipped files and unzip them. Comes with all USA games + Europe exclusives + Japan translated to English games. All the roms come from Hyperpain romset.
