Quick Setup Arcade X-Men Vs Street Fighter
@dankcushions thank you very much for that! I'll let you know how I go. Cheers
@sadtraxx your very welcome, glad i helped! I will be sure to follow you so i can help with future issues as well.
Just to add to what has already been said, Kirstie Alley was the name of the actress who became the main female lead on the 80s American television show 'Cheers' after Shelley Long left to pursue a movie career. That career primarily consisted of 'Troop Beverly Hills' and 'Don't Tell Her It's Me', where she played the sister role to Steve Guttenberg as he pretended to be a tough, motorcycle-driving Australian to trick a woman into spending time with him.
@TMNTturtlguy I think you read the wrong reply
@sadtraxx no, I am sure I read the correct one, I thought my response was obvious enough. I think the others got it and your attempt to point this out to me makes me even more excited to help in the future. Best - TMNTturtlguy
The worst part of all this is that now I can't get this superbly lousy movie out of my head.
@dankcushions ok, so I think I've followed those guides, and still cannot seem to get the unzipped xmvsf rom to boot... notice anything I've done wrong?
using this system, with retropie preloaded (I've updated it to the latest version):
downloaded xmvsf.zip from CENSORED
inserted fat32 USB into Raspberry Pi
inserted USB back into MacBook
unzipped and dragged xmvsf folder into (Pi created) roms folder in retropie folder on USB
inserted USB into Raspberry Pi
reset emulation station
game not there :(
... do I need to drag the xmvsf folder into any particular folder inside roms folder on USB? like fba or arcade?
do I need to update noobs?
do I need to get xmvsf file from a different source?
@dankcushions by the way, on the main retropie screen it has a bar under the 3 retropie logos that says CONFIGURATION. I haven't been asked to login as yet, is this something I need to address?

- buy an unlicensed retropie product
- unzipped the a mame rom
- put it in wrong place
- mentioned the place you downloaded the rom
- wrong romset
@dankcushions it's an unlicensed retropie product? really? how is that possible from a reputed supplier?
I wasn't supposed to unzip the xmvsf.zip file?
where am I supposed to put it?
sorry I mentioned the place I downloaded the rom :(
what is the right romset please?
@TMNTturtlguy you are a vastly superior, yet humble genius. well done
vastly superior, yet humble genius.
It's funny how one image can sum all that up, but it's all there isn't it?
you know, @mediamogul and @TMNTturtlguy, if you guys had given me the help I originally asked for, on the help forum, this conversation would have been over a day ago, and you both could have gone back to your obviously superior lives...
@dankcushions OK I'm downloading the romset you suggested, I clearly didn't read this reply properly. it was a 16gb card by the way. cheers

There has indeed been a bit of back and forth on your original question and that's what I actually found to be somewhat funny to begin with. However, it has been addressed, despite the information being readily available in the official documentation. Nine out of ten times we'd just refer you to the relevant link, but I like to believe we were aiming for a higher level of human interaction rarely seen in this fast-paced, straight to voice mail, TV dinner world we're living in. Are we progressive thinkers? Maybe. Heroes? OK, but those are your words. However, no one would would argue that we're easily the least expensive form of support you're likely to find.
@mediamogul I must acknowledge that I am coming from a completely Pi-ignorant perspective, and probably haven't been helpful to this process, but experienced, knowledgeable users are replying to my question simply to tell me that I got ripped off, and you are posting completely unrelated movie facts... I'm all for silliness, but that is not support, so the cost of it is irrelevant... @dankcushions though has been great. I'm hoping we can all move on from this as stronger people, and that I have a long and fruitful Raspberry Pi career
@sadtraxx I think if i'd sooner realised you had brought a pre-loaded system I wouldn't have been so helpful :) what you have to understand is: you're paying someone else for this community's hard work, and then coming back to this community for help when it doesn't work.
i'm sure you didn't realise this when you bought it, but the end result is the same; they're getting paid for our voluntary work, and then getting their customers to come to us for free support. the best thing you can do is reinstall your system with the official image, as per https://github.com/retropie/retropie-setup/wiki/First-Installation - then we can at least know what you have and how to support it.
for example, the romset i suggest you get will only work on current versions of retropie, which i guess you won't have.
