Platform name problems


Recommended Posts

I created my platform for Neo Geo MVS games. If the platform name (left column) is "Neo Geo [MVS]" (name chosen by me), the games will not start. If I use the LaunchBox default name (Neo Geo MVS) the games start without problems. The problem could be the use of the characters "[" and "]", because I hatto a similar thing with another platform (name without symbols) and I had no problems or there is a way to use the name from me chosen.
Thank you!

Whenever you change or make a custom name for your platform make sure the "associated platform" name for the emulator you are using has that same name. 

Example: If you are using Retroarch for NEO Geo [MVS] go the manage emulators and edit Retroarch. In the associated platforms tab you need to make sure the name for Neo Geo MVS there matches exactly as you have it listed in your platforms. Your platform name is Neo Geo [MVS] then in the associated platform field it should also show Neo Geo [MVS].
