The only reason why I haven't updated the core yet, is that I don't know if doing so might affect other systems I already built, and would necessitate updating their roms too (neogeocd for instance, and anything else I might not think of right now).
Your version is over 6 months old, so no doubt there will be romset updates/additions (we probably added over a dozen of new systems since then), neogeo cd won't be a problem though.
OK I managed to find a 1.0.0 FB Neo romset, updated FB Neo from source in retropie. As you said my romset is not 100% exact match with the current DAT from github but a lot of the missing or incorrect roms are Hacks, or homebrews etc. I don't really care about them. Works very well for now :)
@mrnoholster yes. just launch the other version. note, if you're using a split romset you will need to include the parent rom (typically the one without a revision in the file name) in the same directory for dependencies to be met. if you're using a non-merged romset it won't matter - each rom is standalone and should launch.
You can compare the ones you have to these and double check your naming conversation. Make sure you done have ".rom.rom" or something like that either. Some desktops hide extensions. My guess is the check sum is off here for it not to include the file.
@ericmartin this pretty much only applies to mame and FBNeo. Arcade games mostly. Those 2 have a sort of database that knows what version of rom that it needs to run. Older roms may have been dumped with mild bugs, that may or may not run 100%. Over time, games have been dumped using better Methods and the arcade emulators update their code to only run the better dump and abandon the old.
if you are trying to use other emulators, like Nintendo, sega, etc. they don’t have any checks. You don’t have to worry about romsets there. They will just try to run whatever it is given. Good dump, bad dump, doesn’t matter. Bugs and all.
In RetroPie, the NeoGeo system is separate, so you can copy the NeoGeo romset collection to the neogeo folder and the arcade only romset to arcade.
You can combine them if you want, but you might want to keep neogeo separate just in case you'd want a different configuration applied to it (see this post for an example of why you'd want that).
@Rion Thanks. I used your files. Really useful. Especially the multi bat is very useful in my setup.
I was toying around yesterday with clrmame and romcenter to organise a 0.78 file, but I found it quite hard for a noob. Your files do help a lot !
Sorry for pinging you all, but I wanted to make you all aware that I missed two erotic games.
The games in question are Bubble 2000 (bubl2000) and Pang Pang (pangpang).
Sorry for missing them: especially so if any of you have children. Thank Malachiel from our Discord server for informing me about those two games. If any of you have found any games in the erotic, casino, mahjong, or quiz genres, then please let me know: especially so when it comes to the erotic ones.
