Vs. Ice Climbers



  • I'm building a coin operated arcade machine for my personal use (to helpme save some money) and I'm trying to play VS system games and PlayChoice-10 on my retroarch 4.4 build, but haven't been able to run properly some games, Like VS ICE CLIMBERS and VS SUPER MARIO, Has anyone been able to run those under MAME or FBA? What can I do to run them properly?

    Are you using the proper ROM set version for the version of MAME that you're attempting to run? When using the proper set, most every game should work. All the Nintendo Vs. games and PlayChoice-10 work on mine. I'm using AdvanceMAME 3.x, which uses the 0.106 ROM set. The default MAME for RetroArch is lr-mame2003 and it uses the 0.78 ROM set. Everything you need to know about arcade setup is covered here.



  • Also there are .nes versions of both playchoice 10 and vs games to play in lr-fceumm and lr-nestopia as well. In vs games you need to try both emulators. In playchoice 10 i use lr-nestopia. Mike tysons punchout has a high score and will lockup after you defeat glass joe in lr-fceumm. In vs games if you get a gray-ish white screen just wait a minute. It is part of the boot process. More games run in lr-nestopia than lr-fceumm in vs games.

    I can only get the VS games running in the current lr-mame. I actually did a tiny build of it with only vsnes.c driver. Runs fine on a pi3+...
