I have one BIN/CUE game that ES wants to treat as 2 games



  • Pi Model or other hardware: 3B+
    Power Supply used: 5.25V/3A wired power supply (not a plug and a USB cable)
    RetroPie Version Used : 4.4.8 (a571418b)
    Built From: RetroPie website
    USB Devices connected: 256GB SanDisk USB Drive
    Controller used: XBox 360 wired controller, keyboard
    Error messages received: N/A
    Log found in /dev/shm/runcommand.log (if relevant): N/A
    Guide used: (Mention if you followed a guide) N/A
    File: (File with issue - with FULL path)
    /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/psx/WWF SmackDown 2 - Know Your Role (USA).bin & .cue
    Emulator: (Name of emulator - if applicable) N/A
    Attachment of config files: (PLEASE USE PASTEBIN.COM FOR LARGE LOGS) N/A
    How to replicate the problem: Not sure if you can but I can't get it to go away

    I have 41 games under my psx folder. They all work fine between PBP and BIN/CUE - I even have an m3u for Wing Commander 3 - except one.

    WWF SmackDown 2 - Know Your Role (USA).bin
    WWF SmackDown 2 - Know Your Role (USA).cue

    ES wants to treat these as 2 games. None of my other bin/cue games have that problem. I have already deleted and re-uploaded the image. Just weird. I tried using the HIDDEN option but that doesn't work. Anyone else see this?

    All I see is a cancel gym.rtf document :).
    Did you, by any chance, run a scraper to produce the gamelist.xml file for the PS 1 system ? I know Steven Selph's scraper considers both the .bin and .cue files when scraping, so what I'm thinking is that the entry for the .bin is from the scraper.
    You can also check your es_systems.cfg (in /etc/emulationstation and /home/pi/.emulationstation ) to see if the .bin extension is not part of the psx system's list of added extensions.



  • @mitu LOL Wiseass. :)

    Yeah I did use Selph's scraper. I like the videos.

    I did check that es_systems.cfg file before I posted just to make sure. Love the search function for problems. Had MANY I didn't have to post for because it's already on here... usually with your name on it. :)

    EDIT: Yep. my gamelist.xml file has a bin and a cue entry. Shaved out everything that said WWF and it only shows one in ES now. I just re-scraped that one game. Thanks. :)
