@mitu Listen before you told me that and I cliked on that there was no edit option, now there is and it is doing absolutely nothing. If you want to delete my entire post go for it. I'll find help elsewhere. Thanks
@Unknown It will not disable them, the emulator can read both zip and 7z compressed files. If you have scraped the games already you could run into a problem with emulationstation looking for whatever-your-game-is-named.ngp instead of whatever-your-game-is-named.zip (or .7z) which can be solved by rescraping or editing the gamelist.xml for neo geo pocket.
[edit: realized I worded the first sentence very poorly...]
yes i was looking for a working neogeo bios... Anyways thank you, somehow a friend send me a copy of his, it was about more or less a 4mb file. tried it and made my retropie run neo geo. Thanks for the reply
The guy asked the question a number of times and no one answered it directly or adequately
We answered adequately, you didn't, you just told "pick random roms and perhaps they'll work with one of the emulator", which is the worst way to do that, and against what retropie documentation recommend.
I have consulted the documentation plenty of times. The links do tend to go round in circles or take you off track to tell the truth.
Documentation is crystal clear about this : select an emulator then pick the right romset for it. You do exactly the reverse, you recommend doing the reverse to other people, and you say you consulted the documentation ?
Honestly i couldn't care less how you do things, but the fact you are trying to mislead other people is a cause of concern, because that kind of post lead to more topic like this one. There is no need for trial and error, you can directly pick the right romset which is faster, easy, and the rightful way to do this.
fair enough. please edit the wiki if you can find a nice way of including that information.
for me those customized .dats probably shouldn't be used by beginners at all. the beginner approach should always be to put the right romset in the right folder and not mess about with dats or clrmamepro at all :)
