Atari2600 & Custom Collections!
Yes, i have added the rom files to flash3 (new name) and no system shows, if i drop the roms into the 2600 folder they do show up? The roms are working, images and snaps work great in the 2600 folder?
<fullname>Atari Flash 3</fullname>
<extension>.7z .a26 .bin .rom .zip .gz .7Z .A26 .BIN .ROM .ZIP .GZ</extension>
<command>/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 0 SYS atari2600 %ROM%</command>
I have a roms folder called aflash3 and a image file in heychromey folder called aflash3
i created a new es_systems.cfg. file and edited it to above and then used cyber duck to place it in the opt/emulation folder. I then downloaded to check it had upload correctly?
Still get the same? No aflash3 system??
@stephendm Can you give the exact location of the
@stephendm I have added your code to my copy of
Adventure.zipto a newly created
aflash3folder in the roms folder and the Atari Flash 3 system appears in ES after a restart.
First, try restarting ES and see if your new system appears. ES should be restarted for any changes to
es_systems.cfgto take effect or for newly added roms to appear.
Otherwise, it may be worthwhile checking your
es_systems.cfgat an XML validation site for errors.
ES does create a log file,
/opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation/so it may checking this file for errors.
Feel free to post your copy of
es_log.txtat a site like pastebin.com and I can take a look.
have you an email, i can share a dropbox folder with you?
@stephendm You can put a link in this thread.
Yes, Forgot you could do that. :)
checked es_system.cfg at an XML Validation site and got no errors.
Here's the link, thanks
@stephendm There are a lot of warning messages in
es_log.txtabout missing files in the heycromey theme. Could you try the default Carbon theme? Restart ES and let me know how you get on.
Feel free to post a copy of
es_log.txtafter you have restarted ES if it's still not working.

No aflash3 icon yet.
i have put a copy of the es_log.txt in shared dropbox. Thanks
@stephendm Line 7 in
es_log.txttells me that ES is loading the default
/etc/emulationstation, not your custom version.
Can you run the command
ls /home/pi/.emulationstationand check that
es_systems.cfgexists in that folder?
I have reformat my sd card, new retropie image, updated system and download new theme heychromey.
created a new flash2 image folder and new flash2 rom folder.
below is where i am
and i have dropped the latest es_log file into dropbox.
@stephendm There is a dot/period at the end of your config file,
es_systems.cfg.- remove it and you should be good.
I can't believe it!!!!
Amazing, thanks so much for your help and patience.
Thank You SOOOOOO much!
@stephendm I'm glad you now have everything running as you wish.
The spurious dot/period originates from the command I gave in an earlier post that creates a copy of
es_systems.cfg, which I copied from the documentation, which I initially wrote so the error is on me.
I cannot edit the wiki at the moment but I will fix once permissions are restored.
