Retroarch and sometimes BB

Recommended Posts

This is really weird and I do not understand the issue. It really pertains lately to just Retroarch but Bigbox has happened before. Basically the program crashes and refuses to work till I restart my pc. No other programs on my pc act this way. ra is main offender right now what seems to happen is I run it trough rocket launcher. I hit f1 to go to menu then hit backspace but it won't work. Then I exit out and now RA will crash all the time till a full restart. I moved RA to my ssd still crashed and I even put fresh RA in my ssd still crashes with 0 cfg.

There's a fair bit of complexity there between RetroArch, Rocket Launcher, and Big Box, so it might be difficult to diagnose this issue. Can you first test to see if this happens when using RetroArch on it's own so that we can rule out the other applications and see if this is RA-related?

Retroarch is the problem it will crash when this happens no matter what the cmd runs and crashes windows 10 circle shit. The problem is fixed with a reboot.

Does Retroarch crash on its own when run outside of RL and / or LB ?

Does crash out immediately when loading a game or does it load and play for a while and then crash ?

Crash on own, the gui does not even load. It's not the OpenGL vs d3d issue either. Something is off with it. Reboot solves makes me lead to think something with ram or something.

Yeah that sounds like a hardware issue.

Except for its just retroarch that's what makes me go hmm?

That is strange but myself and many others use RA without any issue you describe and when you say a reboot fixes it for a short period of time that leads me to believe a likely hardware issue.

Yeah, I know but then would I not have issues with a lot more of my programs? I did some googling and I found the issue was rampant on earlier ver of RA but I am on 1.7.1. IDK I am rebuilding my pc soon.

I would suggest asking over on the Retroarch forums, maybe they got an answer for you.

You're the first person I have seen mention this issue so I have no experience with it.
