Recalbox 7.0 on RPi4 - N64 not working for me

  • Hello,

    I did a clean install of Recalbox 7 on RPi4 (unmodified).
    I only registered my 8bitdo SF30 Pro Controllers via Bluetooth.
    N64 roms arent launched at all, I see the Recalbox Screen for 1-2 seconds and then get back to the game list. Tried different ROMs (ByteSwapped, BigEndian, all non zipped). Also tried the different video modes in recalbox.conf, as suggested in other topics. I am using a standard 4K TV via HDMI. Log:

    Hello @acenet
    try another emulator/core.

    Reconfigure your pad in Emulationstation Menu

  • Hi,
    unfortunately reconfiguring the pad didn't help. How to change the emulator? Isn't it a disadvantage in terms of performance etc? I guess the best option is configured out of the box, isn't it?

    Best Regards

    Hello @acenet
    try to find and add 64DD_IPL.bin in /bios/ folder, and play again.

  • Global moderator

    @acris @acenet
    This is an known issue, mupen cores are not lauching, libretro ones do.
    We'll check it.

  • I have this problem too, 64DD_IPL.bin didn't help

  • I have this problem as well. Whichever core I use, the screen comes back to EmulationStation without launching. This seems to be a known problem, because in the N64 rom readme file, it says:

    " If you have problems about black screen with return to Emulationstation, please read wiki below : "

    Problem: the linked page does not exist anymore, as the wiki has been moved. It is therefore very difficult to find the necessary help for this issue.

    Does anyone have an updated link for this issue?

  • Global moderator

    @ZeBug The link is probably a very old one, that has nothing to do with the current bug. There is no solution avaible for instant on this forum !
    Devs are working on several fixes, this is one of them : wait and look for the upcoming update.
    @suzsuzuki the N64DD bios doesn't solve the problem. N64 doesn't require any bios.
