Battle Mania Daiginjou entry makes EmulationStation crash

  • @cosmo0 Works fine here. Try re-transferring the rom and also trying from sd/usb. I'm using the translated rom I patched which was originally from the no-intro set. I Suggest you patch your game with the translation.

    From the readme:
    "There are also numerous hacks and one damaged file circulating around the
    internet. This patch will properly overwrite all the hacked versions that
    I've encountered, but not the damaged file. It will also revert the 1995
    version back to the superior 1993 edition."

    I'm using the stretch-version of retropie with genesis plus gx emulator and latest emulationstation. All the components I built from source..retroarch/es/emulator/ yesterday

  • If emulationstation crashes as soon as the game is shown, i doubt it is related to the rom itself, most likely a buggy image (try deleting it).

  • Thank you all for your replies.

    Nothing in the logs... after crashing, on the console I have terminate called after throwing an instance of 'char const*'.

    The ROM name is Battle Mania Daiginjou (Japan).md. Your intuition was right, renaming it stops ES from crashing... (it works with BattleMania and BattleMania Daijingou (Japan, Korea).md)

    Creating an empty text file with this exact file name also makes ES crash, so I did not try to download another rom version.

    Can anyone try the same rom name ?

    Just tried it and I cannot reproduce the problem

    pi@retropie:~/RetroPie/roms/megadrive $ file 'Battle Mania Daiginjou (Japan).md'
    Battle Mania Daiginjou (Japan).md: Sega MegaDrive/Genesis raw ROM dump Name: "BATTLE MANIA 2  "

    I can launch the game and it works fine.

  • This is really weird.

    The file is not in gamelist.xml, and I'm using Chicuelo theme, but it behaved the same when I was using ComicBook.

    Is there any way to have more debug info?

  • What ES version are you running?

  • I run Retropie 4.3 and I did not update anything. How do I know the ES version ?

  • @cosmo0 When you open the start menu, it shows the version.

    I have tried to update it through retropie-setup but it's still the same version.

  • I got the same crash with another game in another system: Alex Kidd in Shinobi World (USA, Europe).sms. Renamed it to Alex Kidd in Shinobi World (USA).sms and the problem went away.

    The only common thing I found is that they both don't have either image or video, in the middle of other games that do. My current theme (Chicuelo) displays both image and video.
