IR-FBA Not Saving High Scores/Corrupts Game

    Yes, the files generated since september were corrupt thanks to some code for windows phone compatibility[..]

    OK, updated from source (revision 980171e) and seems to be fixed - thank you.

    As a side effect - all the previous saves I had no longer work - but I guess is expected ?. New saves are ok. Seems to be localized to 1 ROM only, other saves seem ok.



  • Neogeo or cps i guess ? Expect all of your current savestates to not work anymore when .43 will be released. Perhaps sooner.

    I don't know for sure if it's CPS. It's Ghosts'n Goblins (gngt) that had this problem, but for instance 1944 or Rtype (Japan) didn't.

    It's not cps, i guess it was the result of the hiscore corruption then (neogeo and cps1/2/3 had a few changes in their savestates for netplay purpose)



  • Ran my second test on another build. RetroPie v4.3.8 and FB Alpha v0.2.97.42 f71f272 (most recent update from source) and it's working great!



  • Downloaded the most recent version of fbalpha from source today and I can't seem to get Street Fighter III Third Strike to save its highscore. It keeps resetting after I exit out of the game.

    The Rom is in my roms/cps3 folder so I'm not sure if it matters that it's not in the fba folder.

    I'll try some other games in the cps3 folder to test. My other arcade games are saving fine such as Defender.

    Edit: Other games don't save either. Temporarily resolved it by enabling auto save state start and auto save state exit.



  • Do you have to do anything for highscores to get saved?
    I just updated from source, but Street fighter iii: second impact still does not save my highscore.
    (@AlanOC91 My game is located in the fba folder.)

    Retroarch: 1.6.7
    Retropie 4.3.5
    lr-fbalpha v0.2.97.42 a6ce1ff



  • It's a different issue from the one that was fixed : it turned out that fba didn't support hiscores in the cps3 driver (there are a few drivers in fba where the hiscore logic is not implemented).

    I just tried adding this logic in my last commit since i had a pretty good guess of what was missing, it seems to work. I'll submit this change upstream to make sure i'm not overlooking something.



  • @bobharris Is there a screen in RetroArch that gives all the versions in one place? If not, how can I easily get my version numbers of RA, RP and lr-fba to post? Thank you. I had the same issue but changed emulators to lr-mame2003 for now on a Pi 3b. Do you guys have comments or opinions on the difference between the 2 emulators on a Pi 3?

    Press Select + X while in game and the RetroArch RGUI should pop up. You can see the RA and emulator's version at the bottom of the screen.
    RetroPie version is shown at the top of the dialog when you start the RetroPie setup script from Emulationstation

    RetroPie version
