SNK Neo Geo AES black screen...

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else run into an issue where all FBA cores just cause a black screen for NeoGeo? 

 

They play perfectly if I load the same rom through the retroarch app directly.

Hi @KillerQ, we're looking into this. We have successfully tested it in the past. Do you have the Neo Geo BIOS files in the Retroarch system folder?

Jason, 

 

Thanks for the quick response. I don't have it in there... 

 

However, the games now load and play flawlessly through LB using the FBA2012 core... But OONNLLYY if I disable the "extract ROM archives" option in LB. 

 

Hope that helps! 

 

Since ujhave your ear... Let me ask you this, I noticed that RA has an option to treat the same. NEO GEO rom as AES or MVS, and you can change that on the fly. As you may have guessed, it seems to turn it from arcade into console as the mvs version you have to enter credits with a select button, etc... 

 

That being said, does launchbox care if you use the mvs or AES version of Neo Geo? I have a feeling that you could load one of the other in launchbox and label it what you want so you might think you're moving over the AES files but you're actually moving over the mvs files that you incorrectly put there in the first place. Since both versions will undoubtedly work on a computer, might not realize that you using one or the other... 

 

 

Just food for thought

that makes sense as that always breaks arcade games since they have to be zipped to work.

Ah, that makes sense. Yes, MAME-style ROMs will absolutely require extracting ROMs to not be enabled.

Good question on AES vs. MVS. I haven't really played with the platform much yet, but I'll keep that in mind.

Thank you and I'm glad I could help! That's why I love being an obsessive beta tester... Everyone always wins!
