Hello. I tried loading gseeker. Result:
Quote
There was a problem starting 'Grid Seeker: Project Storm Hammer (Ver 1.3O)'.

Due to this, I thought I'd update my FBN to the latest version, just in case. I got "Windows.x32.zip" from: https://github.com/finalburnneo/FBNeo/releases/tag/latest
Result: it seems to have lost my settings (no recently loaded games, etc) despite the fact I put the files in my old FBN folder, and even after redefining my ROM path and scanning for ROMs, it still can't find any ROMs. When I just check "Show available", it shows nothing. I tried starting fresh from a new folder, same result.

Any idea? Thanks.

Edit: more info, after defining it, my ROM path looks like this: D:\blabla\fbn\
If I press OK, close FBN then reopen it, then the ROM path is just D
So it seems my ROM path is not properly saved.

Our github builds are completely messed up right now,
they will totally f* your ini file, and for that, I'm very sorry.

Been trying toget this fixed for 3 solid days now, of course, barbudreadmon has been doing great work.  Hopefully we'll find a solution.

for now, please don't use github builds, and stay with a previous working exe until we post that everything is OK.

Here's a current non-debug exe, attached to this message.

best regards,

After spending my day on this, i managed to find a way to downgrade gcc, it should fix all buildbot issues including this one. Testers welcome.

It works. Thank you! I could run R-Type just now.
However, some of my games are no longer recognized, although they are valid and match what FBN expects according to RomCenter.

For example, I get errors such as:
Quote
There was a problem starting 'Rainbow Islands (new version)'.

There was a problem starting 'Rainbow Islands (Extra)'.

For example, I get errors such as:

That's strange, they're working fine here.  To find out more info why they aren't working, find the game in the list and click the [ Game Info ] button, then click the [ Rescan Romset ] button, it'll then say which file(s) are missing, if any.

If it still doesn't work, please see PM :)

Hmm... Now they work. Just now I've been cleaning other games in my ROM folder (replacing / fixing bad dumps), I wonder if other games might have affected those?

About Grid Seeker, I see through Game Info that my ROM is missing "gseeker.nv". RomCenter confirms that. No big deal.

Thanks dink!

Stifu, that's good, glad they work now!
Regarding Grid Seeker, back in july 2021 the romset was updated to match mame, I see they (mame guys) added the .nv file.

Hi friends  :smilie:

Coming back online after a few days of hiatus (due to work stuff) and wonder if the github issue has been sorted ?

Where can I get the latest 'safe' devbuilds atm ?

Best regards  :cool:

Yes, the automatic builds work again. You can find the link in the sticky thread: https://github.com/finalburnneo/FBNeo/releases/tag/latest

They're automatic builds, not official releases, so it's fair if they break, IMO. Making automatic backups is not cheap and adds complexity. I'd say it's much simpler if users back things up on their side.
