Problem running NES roms on FBNeo OSX
« on: May 22, 2020, 11:34:23 PM »
Hi again,

So my ultimate goal is try to get NES roms running on my rpi4 on lr-fbeo but since I'm having trouble there I thought I'd try to see if I can get them working on my Mac on FBNeo 1.04 OSX. I see entries like nes_mariobros NES Marios Bros. (WORLD) in the launcher so looks like it should be possible.

All I'm getting in the log are messages like: ! 'mariobros' is not supported by FB Neo.

I've confirmed that the roms validate:

Code: [Select]
(venv) Tims-iMac:nes timp$ unzip -v mariobros.zip
Archive:  mariobros.zip

<rom name="Mario Bros. (World).nes" size="24592" crc="a6de1b55"/>

</game>


Am I missing something?

Cheers!

Console games are a bit special because their driver name is prefixed, i've no idea how the author of the osx port handled that. From command line, using "nes_mariobros" as filename instead of "mariobros.zip" works ?

Ahh that's it! I should have thought of that.

Thank you!
