    please look readme.txt in rom folder.

    for mame

    ## RECALBOX - SYSTEM MAME ##
    
    Put your mame roms in this directory.
    
    Rom files must have a ".zip" extension.
    
    Recalbox is using libretro mame2003 as default core. So, compatible roms must come from a 0.78 mame romset
    
    Are also included in Recalbox:
    - libretro core mame2000: 0.37b5 mame romset
    - libretro core mame2010 (not available on rpi0/1): 0.139 mame romset
    - standalone emulator advancemame: 0.106 mame romset
    
    So, if you want to use a core different of the default one, you must edit your recalbox.conf file following instructions of this page:
    https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/recalbox.conf-%28EN%29
    
    You can use clrmamepro available at http://mamedev.emulab.it/clrmamepro/ and use the .dat or .xml file in bios/mame* directory to check your roms.
    
    Special files for mame2003 core :
    - Add your samples files in /recalbox/share/bios/mame2003/samples/
    - Update the hiscore.dat file in /recalbox/share/bios/mame2003/ if you want latest highscores (http://highscore.mameworld.info/download.htm)
    - Download history.dat in /recalbox/share/bios/mame2003/ to enable ingame history menu (http://www.arcade-history.com/index.php?page=download)
    

    for fbneo

    ## RECALBOX - SYSTEM FBA LIBRETRO ##
    
    Put your fba libretro roms in this directory (cps3 support, updated version, but less performant than piFBA).
    
    The roms version must be 0.2.97.44
    
    Rom files must have an ".iso/.zip/.7z" extension.
    
    The file fba_libretro_gamelist.txt list compatible games.
    
    Special files for fba libretro core :
    - Add your samples files in /recalbox/share/bios/fba/samples/
    - Update the hiscore.dat file in /recalbox/share/saves/fba_libretro/ if you want latest highscores (http://highscore.mameworld.info/download.htm) (use 'old format hiscore.dat (pre mame v0174)' version)
    


  • @acris very thanks, I will try shortly, a curiosity, the highscores.dat file if I want my scores to be recorded do I have to create it empty by default ?



  • @acris hi, I tried to download the file from ( mameworld, pre mame v0174 ), I put it as per readme.txt indications, first on "/ recalbox / share / saves / fba_libretro/" then in " / recalbox / share / saves / fba_libretro / fba ", I also tried on " / recalbox / share / saves / fba" finally in " / recalbox / share / saves / fba_libretro / fbneo"; by launching metal slug 2 and track & field, in neither case the scores are saved. It is probably not clear to me how it works.
    Thanks anyway.

    The roms version must be 0.2.97.44

    Rom files must have an ".iso/.zip/.7z" extension.

    This text is wrong :

    • we don't support iso files
    • we support all hiscore.dat formats

    Assuming recalbox isn't applying patches to change paths, and /recalbox/share/bios/ is RA's system_dir path :

    • the samples path is /recalbox/share/bios/fbneo/samples/
    • the hiscore.dat path is /recalbox/share/bios/fbneo/hiscore.dat (alongside the bioses)

    Also, out of respect for our work, stop calling our emulator fba, we changed name because we didn't want to be called fba anymore, thanks.

    @barbudreadmon Everything has been renamed FBNeo on recalbox side, except the original rom folder, for compatibility purpose.

    I guess we could change them into fba2x (for the good ol' Pi1/Pi0 emulator) and fbn (or fbneo, or finalburnneo, make your choice 🙂 ) for the current fbn core.
    @paradadf do you think you could take the point?

    I can "patch" ES to read both old and new folders so that everything would be fine for both old and new recalbox installations.

    fbneo would be the best choice since it's how the core, repos & folders are named.



  • sorry all guys, I have in the folder "/ recalbox / share / bios / fbneo" the file hiscore.dat by default, but it is not written by the various games to update the scores, in fact it has as modification date 01/01/1980, even though I assigned 0777 permissions, I probably didn't understand anything about how saving personal scores on Recalbox works.
    Thank you.

    That's normal, it's just a support file containing cpu addresses for handling hiscores, it doesn't store them, they are saved elsewhere (.hi files in fbneo's save folder)

    @bkg2k I can rename it and I planed to do it, but fbneo didn‘t have an official logo the last time I saw. I remember some were proposed, but as long as no new logo exists, I won’t do it.
    So please @barbudreadmon, let me know if an official logo gets accepted and I‘ll made the changes asap.
