Stella doesn't open

Recommended Posts

Hi,

The emulator works great in its standalone version but when trying to open a game within Launchbox nothing happens. Nothing at all. Any ideas?

Thank you in advance,

Have a wonderful day

Works with no problems here and doesn't require any special command lines, functions, etc. Are you using the latest version?

In the associated platform tab of the emulator (in Launchbox) does the platform name match exactly as the platform name you have listed in Launchbox? If it is not there or not spelled/called the same thing you have listed as a platform in Launchbox it will not launch.

Can you share a few pics. 

1. Right click a game and choose edit. Share an image of the Launcher and Emulation tabs

2. Go to tools>manage emulators and choose to edit your Stella set-up. Share a pic of the Emulator Details and the Associated Platforms tabs.

I do not have systems for stella  loaded but I just did a couple games and installed stella with no issues.

Yeah i have never used stella personally, but if it works as a standalone feeding it your roms, then you have something missing/or typo in launchbox. Any emulator that works will work through Lanchbox providing your setting are correct in Launchbox.

@neil9000 Thanks! 🤣

@AgoustBolchz I do not see anything glaring in your images. The setup looks good and none of those boxes in the 3rd pic need to be checked. You did say the games will launch in Stella directly correct? And you did not move the rom location when you imported them into Launchbox right? When I set Stella up for the first time it asked for the rom path. I would open Stella exe and make sure the rom path listed matches the rom path showing in your Launchbox.

Thank you both so much for your quick answers.

Yes, the games launch correctly on Stella as a standalone. I did not move the ROM location when importing them and it matches the ROM path.

Any other idea?

are the games zipped? I know Stella should work with zipped games but try checking the checkbox to have LB unzip them

ah then I'm fresh out of ideas as it looks like it should work if you right click a game and choose launch Stella will it launch the emulator without a game.

I tried both zipped and .bin files on mine and it works. Also the zipped version did not need the unzip check box ticked. I was thinking the same as Dos so tested. I am not sure. Stella was a breeze to set up. Just a few clicks and the import is pretty straight forward. 

If you right click a game and choose "Open Stella" does it at least open the Stella menu? Or right click and choose launch with Stella?

Great idea! Yes. and from Stella opened in that way I can play the games so it must be a rom path problem, right? This is really weird. I have 22 emulators and all work fine. It's the first time something doesn't work in Launchbox. Maybe deleting everything and importing them all over again?

Okay so it won't even launch the emulator are you pointing it to the installer maybe and not the actual emulator.

.bin should work in Stella and he can already load them outside of LB
