Pi Model or other hardware: (B, B+, 2 B, 3, X86 PC etc..): x86 PC running Ubuntu 16.04
RetroPie Version Used (eg 3.6, 3.8.1, 4.1 - do not write latest): 4.4.2
Built From: (Pre made SD Image on RetroPie website, Berryboot, or on top of existing OS etc.. - please provide the filename of any image used): On top of the OS following instructions on the RetroPie website
USB Devices connected: Xbox 360 Wireless reciever, USB keyboard, USB flashdrive.
Controller used: Xbox 360 Wireless controller
Error messages received: None
Log found in /dev/shm/runcommand.log (if relevant):
Parameters: Executing: /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -L /opt/retropie/lib$ $ No such file or directory
Guide used: (Mention if you followed a guide): Set up guide on Retropie website.
Emulator: (Name of emulator - if applicable): Both MGBA and lr-vba-next
Attachment of config files: (PLEASE USE PASTEBIN.COM FOR LARGE LOGS)
lr-mgba = "/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -L /opt/retropie/lib$ default = "lr-mgba" $opie/configs/gba/retroarch.cfg %ROM%"
How to replicate the problem:
I have placed a bios with the md5sum of
a860e8c0b6d573d191e4ec7db1b1e4f6inside of the BIOS folder retropie creates
Then placed the ROMs inside of the gba ROMs folder
Launch the GBA title with either MGBA or lr-vba-next
The game freezes upon the splashscreen starting to load, but the game audio will continue to play. The only way to exit out of the game is to completely exit out of EmulationStation. I have tested the games I am trying to use on a Windows PC with VBA and they launch without issue. All other systems are launching fine in RetroPie. If there is any more information you need or any error log, I can provide it if you point me into the proper directory to find it.
You emulators.cfg for the gba system is corrupted. It should be:
lr-mgba = "/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -L /opt/retropie/libretrocores/lr-mgba/mgba_libretro.so --config /opt/retropie/configs/gba/retroarch.cfg %ROM%" default = "lr-mgba"
Replace the file with the contents I pasted above and re-try.
