pc engine/ tg 16 loading issues/ please help
« on: August 19, 2017, 09:34:56 AM »
Hello, I am new to attract mode and I recently installed and started building it out on retro pie and have run into an issue I can not figure out. I followed a previous post and was able to create pcengine emulator using the following settings:
/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh
0 _SYS_ pcengine "[romfilename]"
/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/pcengine
.zip;.cue;.pce
TurboGrafx 16
thegamesdb.net

The rom list gets created but it is not loading any of the roms. When I log out of attract mode it will load them in emulation station. I checked the configuration settings when the rom begins to load and they look off. I am missing options 1 through 3 and at the top is:
System: emulator/port
Emulator: /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/pcengine/Bonk's
Video Mode:
ROM: game/rom
Which is obviously off. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Josh

Please post your cfg file as it is

and are you on a PC or on a raspberry pi?

Thank you for your reply. I am on a raspberry pi. You were able to help me out by asking me for my cfg file. As I was copying it I realized I was missing two spaces in the args, the ones before and after _SYS_ . Rookie oversight! All is running smooth now.

Thanks Much!

Nah. Even us "seasoned vets" make those simple mistakes...just don't tell them I told you that. :P
