overlays override not working

i have got the overlays to work, but im trying to have Neogeo to have just one system over lay, but i cant get it to come up. it will just come up with the game overlay that FBA uses.
this is my retroarch.cfg for neogeo
# Settings made here will only override settings in the global retroarch.cfg if placed above the #include line input_remapping_directory = "/opt/retropie/configs/neogeo/" input_overlay = "/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch/overlay/neogeo.cfg" input_overlay_opacity = "1.000000" #include "/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg"
as far as i can tell it looks like it should but it will not take.
any thoughts on why the game overlays are taking priority?
I think my problem is there is a config overide that is loading.
i think i already when in a removed the retroarch.cfg from the config\all\ and it is still coming up
guessing i missed something
The overrides are stored in
~/.config/retroarch/config, not in the
/opt/retropie/configs. Look in that folder for any core/game overrides for the core you're using.
@mitu so i got in to the FB Alpha through the way you told me and there is a bunch of .CFG files for all the games that point to the correct path for FBA to display the over lay.
which is what i want to have when im play a FBA game. not sure what else to look for other then i will just have to deal with it as is
@ExarKunIv I don't fully understand - you want just 1 overlay for the whole FBA system and RetroArch loads each game with its overlay (and you don't want that) ? Or ... ?
@mitu Im good with what FBA is doing, no problem there
I would like to have just 1 overlay for NeoGeo, but they both use the same core. so when i start a NeoGeo game the over lay for the game will pull up not the single Neogeo over lay i would like
@ExarKunIv I see. So you have the same games in both
neogeofolders ? How did those games get personalized overlays ?
auto_overrides_enable = "false"
retroarch.cfg, maybe this will stop the automatic loading of game overrides. The bad part is that any game overrides will not work :( for this system.
@mitu ok i will give a shot.
and yes i have the same game in both folders. i only have a few in NeoGeo. like metal slug, etc.
@ExarKunIv Just be aware of the limitation - no game override will load automatically in the
Another option would be to copy the
.cfgoverride files from the RetroArch's config folder into the
fbaROMs folder. RetroPie will automatically load the
.cfgfile next to the ROM, so the effects will be similar and your overrides folder for
lr-fbalphawill be clean.
The downside is that you'll have the
.cfgfiles in the ROMs folder.
EDIT: I think RetroPie will load
romname.zip.cfg, while the override will only need
romname.cfg, so the alternative is not going to work without renaming the
i dont have anything different with the neogeo core other then the overlay. so adding the line to disable override is going to work for me.
but still knowing a different way is good to know just in case
