FBA Multiple Roms needed for 1 Game



  • I am sure this is an issue that has been answered, but i am having issues with my FBA romset 2.97.42. and can't find an answer. Some games, such as Demon Front, need multiple zipped roms uploaded to my Retropi for it to work. The issue is that I then have multiple games listed in my FBA, while I only use 1 of them to play. How do I upload all the roms needed without cluttering my user interface?

    You can copy the additional ROMs in the BIOS/fba folder instead of the fba folder.

    you know I never thought of doing that but it makes so much sense!



  • That worked. Thanks!



  • @TheBlueBanner @chubsta Another solution is to create "non-merged" romset, definition from the mame website :
    A non-merged set is one that contains absolutely everything necessary for a given game to run in one ZIP file. This is ordinarily very space-inefficient, but is a good way to go if you want to have very few sets and want everything self-contained and easy to work with. We do not recommend this for most users.
    Clrmamepro allows you to build such romsets, or you can do it manually by copying files from parent and/or bios to the romset you want to launch.
