SOLVED 6.1 Save States and Hi Scores Lost for NeoGeo
andyj34 last edited by
Just recently upgraded from Recalbox v6.0 to v6.1.
I had two (2) saved states; mslug2.state and mslug2.state8, for states 0 and 8 respectively.
Before the upgrade I backed-up of these files as contingency as well as the high score files.
Since the upgrade though the above save state files remain intact/untouched, the emulator is not loading the save states as before.
In addition the high score files are also not being recognised.
Can someone provide a solution as to reinstate the usage of the saved state files otherwise i'm going having to play the game again to reach the last level!!
Hello, sorry for the question, but in which folder did you put back the save and hi-scores?
It seems that while previously hi-scores were in
recalbox\saves\fba_libretro\fba, now it saves and loads from the
recalbox\saves\fba_libretro\fbneofolder, due to the fact the core changed name.
Also the states seems to be directly in
Maybe it's the reason, though I am not sure about the states.
EDIT: I assumed you were using the fba_libretro folder, if you are using the neogeo one, I am not sure if it has the same principle, but that may be worth looking into.

Hello @Fishou ,
thanks! As soon as I get home I try too (I had the same problem and I didn't understand). Excuse me one thing: why does retroarch still call fba_libretro if now it is actually fbneo_libretro?
@gkm As far as I know for recalbox, it's for backward compatibility reasons (renaming the folders could be tricky to handle, maybe there are other reasons too but I don't know).
Let me know if this fixes anything ^^

I got it.
Thanks! it was enough to move all the content from fba to fbneo from the fba_libretro folder.
