Hi, I'm having trouble with FBA in launchbox. There isn't a command line in the box where you edit it, but this window keeps popping up every single time I try to play an arcade game. Anybody know how to fix this?

Yeah, that clearly says that it is trying to load a game called "A" there is no such game so that aint gonna work. FBA uses mame roms which are zipped and have a short name for the file.

What rom set is the rom for ? While FBA supports some roms from the Mame set it doesn't support all of them, that is what that error message looks like.

Well thats a different path than the error you are getting, the error says Launchbox/Games/A, where as the actual game says Launchbox/Games/Arcade, which is correct?

Yeah im at a bit of a loss here then, i have never used fba personally so i really dont no if it needs any additional settings or not. It's possible it needs a specific commandline or different boxes checked/unchecked in the manage emulators screen. Also i assume the games work directly in fba without going through Launchbox?

Have you tried using the fba core in retroarch at all?

I would try playing with the check boxes in the Edit Emulator window of your FBA entry in LB. Here is a shot of my Mame emulator entry, i'd imagine FBA probably wants something similar.screenshot_127.thumb.jpg.3125252f23e700c8acbbda56342d72f9.jpg

You may have to tinker with some of the video settings, it's been several years since I have used the stand alone version of FBA, I use either the FBA core in Retroarch or most often I use stand alone Mame.
