Is Metal Slug 3 broken?
« on: December 12, 2022, 09:10:24 AM »
AFAIK I have the latest version and the latest version of the mslug3.zip ROM (I've tried three different ones, from normally-reliable sources like Edge), and none of them work. It boots to a black screen and recognises adding a credit, but will not start a game.

Strange, It's working fine here, are you sure the roms are of good quality?

best regards,

It's working fine for me too.
Maybe something about your settings ? It might be a good idea to reset them to default and delete the game's nvram.

Edit: Especially, make sure "stop mode" is not enabled in dipŝwitches

I downloaded the "fbnarcade-fullnonmerged" ROMset from archive.org. The log finds no problems:

Both your RetroArch and FBNeo core are a bit old. While it's pretty rare it's not totally impossible you are using some broken versions.
Could you post your logs again after setting logging levels to "0 (Debug)" in RetroArch's "Settings > Logging" ?

I deleted the .FS file, whatever that is.

That's the nvram :)

It seems you are using some cheat file in the libretro format, i have seen cheats preventing games from booting, so maybe make sure this is not the problem here.

Nope, that cheats folder is empty. I'd never even heard of it until now.

Hmmm, your logs are quite explicit about loading/saving that file though, while i don't have that message on my side.
I can only recommend updating your setup and providing the logs i requested.

FWIW, another user was having a weird game boot issue on retropie and got past it by updating FBNeo, RA and apparently several other packages on his setup : https://github.com/finalburnneo/FBNeo/issues/1274

Imho, it's extremely likely that you are experiencing the same problem.
