Online Updater (option) Missing
I am watching video tutorials about RA and all of them ask you to use that feature. However my RA does not show the OU. What can I do? Any tips? :BrokingHeart:

Right click RetroArch in your library, go to properties, go to the DLC tab and check all the boxes you wish to download. If RetroArch was open, restart it.

The rest of the assets, aside from thumbnails, (currently not provided) are automatically included within the main RetroArch install.

I've already enabled it on user interface options, but it still does not show it :Emo_3_Crying:
A developer of this app has indicated that this post answers the original topic.

Yes, I installed all the dlc cores, but still can't see the "Online Updater" option.

There isn't one, since there is nothing needing to update. All of the online updater assets are automatically included/updated with the RetroArch install, aside from the cores themselves. Those are updated as DLCs via Steam automatically, if you subscribe to them via the DLCs tab.

I'm trying to add more cores like PSP, PS2, etc.
And still can't make PSX work (I have the bios).

Ok, guess I fixed this. I just downloaded RA from official site and overwrote this version. Now I see more cores and the updater.

i just use the main RA as an updater, and i point my directories to the main one's

If the Online Updater is no longer an option, how do you tell RA to retrieve all missing thumbnails?

I've been using cores not yet added to Steam and updating them through a separate install of the website version (Moving the cores from the "cores" folder from the steam version to the "Cores" folder from the website download) and using the online updater from the website version to update my cores. Then I move the updated cores back to the steam versions "Cores" folder. Sounds way more complicated than it is but it works for me and I don't mind it.

Under my RetroArch properties I don't have a DLC tab, even though I've added each core from the Store page to my Account (which was really annoying). Is there any reason I don't have any?

Same for me, unfortunately.

I am not one to just say "same" and hope for the best, so I'll contribute by saying that I am using the Linux release of RA. I also don't have a DLC tab. I wonder if this is a factor?

EDIT: Looking at the DLC page on the Steam store, it appears all the DLC is for Windows only. Perhaps Linux builds could be uploaded too?

can we get an estimate one when all cores we get from the online updater will come as DLC specifically Dolphin and PCSX2 I pray we get them before the steam deck releases I really don't wanna install windows just for emulation
How to fix missing assets, when there are no online-updater?

I used Window version, but still no DLC tab shows up in the property.
