Lakka is a program package for Windows intended to serve as an assembly of an operating system based on ArchLinux. Thanks to this distribution, users are able to turn their personal computer into a multi platform portable console emulator. More than fifty device models are supported, including those from Sony and Nintendo.
Installation and launch
The operating system can be deployed not only on a desktop PC or laptop, but also on the Raspberry Pi, as well as other portable devices, such as set-top boxes or single-board computers. There is an option to burn images in IMG format to USB flash drives memory cards.
Installation is carried out in automatic mode. Once the procedure is finished, you will be prompted to select desired emulators. The system software enables you to configure graphics, audio and control settings for individual console instances. This ensures stable performance and high emulation quality.
It is necessary to mention that the OS package does not come with any games by default. This means you have to search for desired ROM files yourself. The operating system gives you the possibility to connect third-party controllers. There is an option to automatically assign actions to buttons.
Lakka requires a low amount of PC resources to run, which makes it a convenient choice if you have a relatively weak machine. If you want to install multiple OSs, you may also try another utility called PCem.
