Turbo GrafX-16, NES, Genesis, etc. I can't get FBN to read any of them. I have the official ROM sets. They are in the correct folder and set to the correct path. I've tried zipped and unzipped. When I scan the path FBN does it slowly, so I know it's reading them, but nothing ever shows up in the games list. I'm sure I'm just missing something really small.

I would greatly appreciate any help to figure this out and get things working. Thanks in advance.

lantern48,
is the "Show Available" box checked in the top-right corner of the game list?

best regards,

So let's say, for example: you've downloaded coleco.zip from archive.org 's fbneo set (hint, google it), it would be correct to extract all of the zips from that zip into "fbneo folder\roms\coleco", try. (replace coleco with whichever console you're after)

I actually already had those romsets from IA.
Do you mean rename the coleco folder?

I just want to mention again that everything was already in the correct folder and set under the correct path. And so you know, I've been emulating games for more than 20-years. I'm stumped why this isn't working.

Hmm, I don't know, this is very strange :) 
could you open a cmd prompt from your fbneo folder, run "dir /s > list.txt" and post list.txt as an attachment, and also your config/fbneo.ini file?

Hello. I would like to say that I am having the same issue. My operating system is Windows 11. I just downloaded FBNeo, placed a Parasol Stars (USA) .pce file in the tg16 folder, and attempted to run it. I tried checking the "show available" box, renaming my file to not have spaces, checked "filters", and clicked the "scan roms" button multiple times. I will attach my list.txt.

You need the pce romsets meant for the FBNeo emulator, the same applies for every other supported games, console or arcade.
