Recalbox 7.0

Galaga on mame fail to launch



  • Hello

    On recalbox 6.1, so with Mame 0.78, i try to launch galaga.zip and it doesn't work.

    This is the log i got in es_log.txt :
    [2019/11/05 11:59:14.755] (INFO ) : Attempting to launch game...

    So, can someone tell me what's wrong this that. The rom cames from the romset mame 0.78.

    Thanks.

    Maybe you are using your 0.78 romset with an emulator which is not the mame2003 libretro core ? Otherwise it would mean the game is broken with mame2003 (no idea if that's the case), or your romset is not 0.78 actually.
    On a sidenote, the game works flawlessly on FBNeo with the latest romset (0.215).

    @pelletalexandre try to download it from another location

    By default, Recalbox 6.1 doesn't come with mame 0.78?
    I just upload the galaga.zip in the mame folder, so i was thinking that Recalbox handle itself the game list with the right emulator?

    Do i need to edit that file to force another emulator?

    This the romset i downloaded : MAME2003_Reference_Set_MAME0.78_ROMs_CHDs_Samples. Is that good?

    Thanks

    It comes with mame2003 which is mame 0.78 indeed, however i don't know if it's the emulator set for the mame folder in your config.

    I was thinking about it, but, i doesn't find another place to get it...

    Everyone says it easy but i not.

    this the mame section in es_sysytems.cfg. This is the default one and it seems good :

    <system>
    <fullname>Mame</fullname>
    <name>mame</name>
    <path>/recalbox/share/roms/mame</path>
    <extension>.zip .ZIP</extension>
    <command>python /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/configgen/emulatorlauncher.pyc %CONTROLLERSCONFIG% -system %SYSTEM% -rom %ROM% -emulator %EMULATOR% -core %CORE% -ratio $
    <platform>arcade</platform>
    <theme>mame</theme>
    <emulators>
    <emulator name="libretro">
    <cores>
    <core>mame2015</core>
    <core>mame2010</core>
    <core>mame2003</core>
    <core>mame2000</core>
    <core>mame2003_plus</core>
    </cores>
    </emulator>
    <emulator name="advancemame">
    <cores>
    <core>advancemame</core>
    </cores>
    </emulator>
    </emulators>
    </system>

    idk, it doesn't contain information on the emulator you are using, just a list of the emulators you could use for this folder.

    Ok, so when i launch a game, how recalbox knows which emulator he needs to use?

    For example, i uploaded street fighter 2 the same way and it works fine without doing anything.

    What do i need ti do?

    Thanks

    it's somewhere in the configuration menu, can't remember where exactly



  • @barbudreadmon

    Big thank to you. It was just about setting mame 2003 instead of mame 2003 plus...

    So, it is all right.

    Thanks again!

    It seems there are a lot of things that got fixed in galaga after mame2003/0.78, that's why mame2003-plus uses a more recent version of the driver, which needs a more recent version of the romset (probably mame2010/0.139). From what i'm seeing in the mame changelog, i wouldn't recommend using mame2003/0.78 to play galaga.
