Scanning is not working in Windows XP version of FB Neo
« on: February 19, 2021, 09:48:07 AM »
Hello.

As the subject states, I've been trying to scan the games on Windows XP.

When I scan for roms, although I have roms placed at specified folder,
no roms are shown as available sets.

I did download XP version of Neo.

What can I do so that the scan actually picks up the roms?

Thanks.

Are your romset correct with fbneo?

Hello, howard. Thanks for your reply.

I am using roms from 0.2.97.44 set.

Thanks.

I am using roms from 0.2.97.44 set.

Then they might be outdated ? While being bad luck, it could happen if you are using only a few romsets

Hello.

I see. I will try to find a way to get v1.0 romset.

But is there also anything I can do so that Neo scans
the roms I have at the moment?

Thanks.

If your issue is about mismatching romset version, then no, romset version has to match emulator.

Would Neo scanning roms and not showing any games considered
an issue with mismatching romset?

Generate a .dat file from fbneo and use romcenter to scan and find incorrect roms.

I downloaded and tried to run romcenter, but I can't seem to open the program.

It says there was an error and program needs to close.
