Games won't start in RetroFE

4 posts in this topic

Hello,
I've been trying to get the RetroFE launcher to work with RetroArch, but it still refuses to start the game, 
I've tried looking in all the different configs and wiki's, but still with no difference... :'(

The log from RetroFE shows that the game is found and launched, but RetroArch didn't show up, no errors or pop-ups.

I'm new in the mame community so I don't know much yet abaout the programs, but i'll try my best to cooperate in every way possible! :)

Thanks in advance!

You should probably post these things on the forums at http://www.retrofe.nl

That said: I read in your log that you call retroarch directly with the romname. I've never used retroarch myself, but if it's anything like MAME, you'll need to tell retroarch which system the rom should be run on. Any retroarch user should be able to tell you how to do that; unfortunately I'm not one of them.

Ah, yes, sorry about that. :) We had a huge flood of spam lately, so I'm manually checking all applications to reduce that problem. I've just approved your account.

      Hey all,
      I'm new to front ends, but after searching around, I've decided to go with LaunchBox with Big Box.  I really like the RetroFE theme (not sure if there is more than one), but the theme that is currently on youtube prebuilt.  Is there a way to make LaunchBox look similar to RetroFE?

      I've uploaded a new modular RetroFE system to the EmuMovies FTP site, at /Upload Here/RetroFE
      While it contains a README.txt as well, a bit of explanation:
      - The RetroFE base.zip file contains the base RetroFE installation, with the latest executable. It's not very different from what you can find in the download section at RetroFE, except that it does not have the (nearly empty) Sega Genesis and Arcade collection.
      - The MAME 0.182 emulator.zip file contains the MAME emulator installation. All the collections currently in the set use MAME as their emulator, and the launchers all point to this installation.
      - The rest of the zip files contain collections, as complete as I have them, with launchers for Linux and Windows. Just unzip them in the RetroFE directory.
      - The emulators directory contains the MAME artwork (bezels), which can you simply drag and drop as a whole into your RetroFE directory. The MAME installation mentioned above will automatically use them.

      Basically, all you need to do is take the base (or use your own), unzip the MAME installation if you want, unzip the collections you want, add them to your Main collection's menu.txt file, add your games, and enjoy. The sets are mostly based on HyperSpin 1.0 XML files, so finding the corresponding games should be easy.
