I have a question,
could you manage to get a GPIO output to toggle from high to low or vice versa when something happens in the game? are there any methods to detect if gameover or highscore happens?
I ask because I have RGB mood lighting on my cabinet, and would love to make it flash and strobe etc if you die or get a highscore etc.
I understand that detecting an emulator starting and detecting what happens inside the emulator are two different things, but you dont get if you dont ask :)
Okay, it looks like I have it running pretty clean now. Thank you all so much. Next I'll try to figure out how to add Famicom CDS, Super Famicom, Virtual Boy and maybe Game & Watch directories/roms to my build. Time to start hunting through the threads [slaps and rubs hands together in eager excitement] :)
@marc.knuckle try getting multiple roms to test. Also put the bios zip in with the roms in the roms folder. (Just in case its looking for it there) Because the mame/fba roms get updated some of the roms might not be compatible if you dont have the correct version of rom with the version of fba/mame that is on the pi. So testing only one rom does you no good.
