Description of the issue, messages received:
Everything was working fine, I focus on one system, finish it and move on to another. All of a sudden I wanted to try some PSX or Saturn games and problems appeared:
"No PlayStation BIOS found - add for better compatibility"
: I get no error per se, but it appears as if a layer of graphics is not displaying, so I get backgrounds and no sprites (e.g. with Shinobi X, Story of Tor 2), or nothing at all (e.g. with Guardian Heroes). The games seem to be running, I can hear the sounds.
seems alright (Dreamcast, Arcade, SegaCD, PSP, Naomi/Atomiswave, ports, DosBox, etc. are running well, without issues).
Emulator: lr-pcx-rearmed and lr-yabasanshiro respectively
How to replicate the problem: Well... not sure. Latest things I did before the problem showed up:
Added more stuff to Dreamcast emulator, videosnaps etc. To the point that I have around 3GB of free space in the card out of 64 GB
Tried to install Spelunky Classic HD via PiKISS scripts, but this failed. I deleted the folder but perhaps this messed up with something
Installed lr-fceumm-mod to support Super Mario 1/3 rom hack
Things I have checked:
For PSX issue:
System folder is still "home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS" in retroarch.cfg and on retroarch menu when the game is running
The BIOS are the same ones I was using before, are in the right place, with the right MD5 checksum as the ones indicated in the retropie docs PSX section.
I have two BIOS files: SCPH101.BIN and SCPH1001.BIN, and I have tried all smallcaps also.
I have been looking for answers in the forums but they all revolved on other issues I do not seem to have. Indeed, this was working and I did not change anything directly related to this... that I am aware =)
For Saturn issue:
I have just tried lr-yababyuse, and games seem to run (poorly, but graphics are displayed).
Updated raspbian tools
I am completely lost with this one, do not know what happened here...
Thoughts and questions:
Happened to anyone before?
Can both problems be related somehow? If so, how?
Perhaps the spelunky installation through PiKiSS script was to blame?
Could this be that there is little space on the card? (3GB free currently)
Any way of restoring stuff without having to back-up all roms and starting over? Not having to once more again install the ports, experimental emulators, Retropie Extra (Zerojay's) stuff...
Thanks in advance!!
