problems recognizing ROMs
« on: July 10, 2022, 12:50:10 AM »
Hi guys, I have a problem with FBneo. I was trying to play the game Final Fight 30th Anniversary Edition (ffightae.zip). I just downloaded the latest version of the FBNeo emulator V1.0.0.02. I also downloaded the main Rom (ffight.zip).
I tried making a ROM modification (ffightae) on a site called FFAEE https://gamehackfan.github.io/ffaee/ which was created to make changes to the game easier.
There after making the modifications you want, you can choose to generate a ROM for MAME (HBmame) or for FBNeo. if you don't choose the type of ROM you want to generate it will by default generate a ROM for FBNeo.
But when I put the ROM in the roms folder it doesn't recognize the ROM I generated, but ffight recognizes it normally. I noticed that not even the original file (ffightae) it recognizes, and I got the (ffight) and (ffightae) from the same roms site.
Is there any solution for this?

Hi,
Get the latest WIP FBNeo from https://github.com/finalburnneo/FBNeo/releases/tag/latest
note: if file list is empty, it is generating new exe's - please try again in a couple minutes.

best regards,

Greetings, I came from Final Burn Neo's Github. Happy to find this thread!

I've been working on using FBN Core for Android in RetroArch and would love to get the great Final Fight AE CPS2 loading, but FBN doesn't recognize this romset: 'ffae_cps2.zip'.

This archive was created properly from their Java Installer and was in the /mame directory. Any tips on post-processing requirements or needed FBN Settings changes?

Thanks!

Hi count-rostov,
I think all you need to do is rename it to ffightae.zip and rescan the roms

Okay, close. "This game is known but it's missing files for this version of FBNeo."

Verify:
ff-23m.8h
ff-22m.7h
ff-5m.7a
ff-7m.9a
ff-1m.3a
ff-3m.5a

These files appear to be a part of FFAE for CPS1. They don't seem to be produced by the FFAE CPS2 installer:

I have never used this installer, but, I can recommend something to google: "fbneo archive.org full"
note: there appears to be a cps2 version of the rom, now, too

CPS1 romset is named ffightae.
CPS2 romset is named ffightaec2.

If you built your own romset using "FFAE CPS2 installer", make sure you named it correctly (so ffightaec2 ?), or FBNeo won't recognize it.
