    Are you sure that your romset is for mame 2003 ?
    Need mame 0.78 romset may be check with clrmamrpro

  • Hi

    i think so...

    with rainbow islands for example:

    retroarch -L /usr/lib/libretro/ --config /recalbox/share/system/configs/retroarch/retroarchcustom.cfg /recalbox/share/roms/mame/

    Segmentation fault

    i took this rom:
    Edit : link removed, no download links to copyrighted contents on the forum

  • Banned

    It's written mame 0.158 on your own link...

    Please read the arcade documentation on recalbox github wiki

  • Don't "think so" but check the rom with clrmamepro, i'm sure it's not the rom version the mame core can emulate

    If you don't know how to use clrmamepro, have a look at our wiki 🙂

    And please remove your link 🙂

  • ok sorry for the link!

    well ok so segfault generally means it cant emulate.


  • For every wonder boy game i know on arcade, there is a working one on the mame2003 core : the original game where you can ride a skate board, the second one where you have to reach a castle which is a damn mazr, and the last one that is a shoot'em up (and awfully hard). They all work. Make sure you have th parent, not a split clone

  • thank you. i am still a novice with that roms
