@dankcushions As it turns out, it was looking for a specific file from a secondary Shock Troopers ROM. Not much to say beyond, "I didn't do my due diligence." The filename in the verbose log was so similar to one already in the ROM that I didn't realize it was actually missing. Also new to me is a Neo Geo game requiring a secondary file. I've dealt with parent and clone ROMs in the past, and even have experience with CHD's and secondary files with CP System III stuff, but this was a new one for me.
I appreciate the confirmation that I had it wrong. Between that and Googling the crc I was able to find the missing file and get this running.
@solecize oh yeah I remember those days. The original restoration/conversation of my BerZerk cabinet was done in late 2000, just when Ultimarc and all the I-Pacs were coming out. I remember I was going to do the keyboard hack, but bought one of the first versions of the I-Pac. My first spinner was a trackball and HD bearing hack that worked pretty good. That cabinet saw a few refreshes, one being the upgrading of the control panel, then the computer which was done multiple times. Lol.
I basically love the hobby and I really enjoy seeing guys restore the old cabinets. With all the great graphics available out there we don't have to make our own stencils any more. Lol. It was fun and challenging, but I'm happy to just buy the stuff now and save on the time.
Good luck with the restoration, I'm still finishing Gorf and BerZerk will once again be refreshed. I'm trying to source the original metal control panel, or if I have to, I'll make one myself.
If you need any help, let me know. Having just done it, it's all still fresh on my mind.
All 4 are Vizio.
My entertainment center TV has issues with the sound cutting out constantly.
The others (Roommate bedroom, my bedroom, and the living room) do not have the same issue.
(I even changed cords, and plugged the system directly into the TV instead of the splitter box)
So I wonder if the TV itself is defective, or is it just incompatible, or what...
I also tested all the ports on my entertainment center TV, same sound issue with each HDMI port.
When I bought the TV in Sep '18, in Oct '18 they had to do a recall on the main board, sending a person out to replace it. Then as of last year, the sound was cutting out again on other channels but eventually stopped, but Vizio sent me a replacement board just incase.. something I didn't/don't know how to install... so it's probably just either the first replacement died as well, or wasn't installed correctly, or the TV is just crap.
Yeah, I checked the sites myself and had no issue. I don't see how it could be the connection on the Pi, though, since the wifi works for anything I do via the GUI - both the main Retropie interface and the setup interfaces. Scraping, updating, etc, all works until I go into the terminal. I'll probably have to seek help elsewhere as I suspect that's still outside of your ability to assist.
Thanks for the help, though. I at least now know some stuff to look at should other problems arise in the future.
Alas, you won't find much support for a third-party RetroPie installation here, because we can't know how much its makers changed the official installation image. On top of that, RetroPie's licence and the licences of many of its components don't allow commercial use, including selling it as part of a commercial product. The people who sold it to you broke those licences.
So, you'll have to either ask the vendor about the problems with their product, or install the official image from https://retropie.org.uk/download/. In the latter case, you should make a backup of your old system and its games as described here – or just use another SD card.
We'll be happy to help you with any problems you may have with the official image. As a side effect, you may learn a bit or two about the inner workings of the wonderful retrogaming box of bricks that RetroPie is. 👍
