I need help please for Retroacrh with Attractmode arg setting
« on: December 04, 2019, 02:46:59 AM »
Im using Retroarch 1.81
and Im trying to run Neo Geo Games with Fbaneo cores.

here is my arg setup

# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.5.1
#
executable           D:\attract mode\emulators\RetroArch\retroarch.exe
args                 %file -L cores\fbneo_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"

artwork    snap            D:\attract mode\emulators\RetroArch\NEOGEO ROMS\snap
artwork    wheel           D:\attract mode\emulators\RetroArch\NEOGEO ROMS\wheel


Here the error Im getting

Can someone help me find a solution so I can run neogeo games on it.
its because New Retroarch has netplay with FBAneo core now

Try this:

Code: [Select]
args      -f -L D:\path complete\cores\fbneo_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"
rompath      D:\attract mode\emulators\RetroArch\NEOGEO ROMS\roms\

In Windows i would not leave empty spaces in the paths, they may need "".

Can you play these games in RetroArch directly (without AttractMode)?

Can you play any other games (non neogeo) in AttractMode using RetroArch?

Without more information it's hard to say but...
- check the contents of your *.cue files and make sure they point to the correct files/paths (if there are spaces they need to be in quotes)
- check your retroarch.cfg file to see what "video_driver = X" is set at. Maybe it needs to be something else like gl or d3d.
- maybe the resolution change is causing the issue. this can be overcome using the resfix plugin.
- your settings in the last post contain "D:\path complete" which I'm sure isn't correct
- make sure the roms you're using are the right version for the RetroArch core you're using and have access to the correct BIOS files

The more information you provide the better we can help you. If you need more help consider posting the following files.
- AttractMode neogeo.cfg emulator file
- RetroArch retroarch.cfg
- one or more of your neogeo .cue files

yes I can run them threw retroarch with no problem but its seem cant get AT get threw the path for FBneo core

I found this information to this link here.
https://forums.libretro.com/t/guide-play-neo-geo-cd-games-using-fbneo/17735

they have weird path and command line but I'm not expert to understand what it mean but, I hope this help.
but all I know that they wanted to put ur bios on the system  folder the neogeo.zip and neocdz.zip
 and the iso images need to be .bin and .cue also Im using retroarch 1.8.1 latest because has new netplay support for neo geo cd so I figure I would try to see if I can run it threw AT

so far Retroarch can run all the emulators and roms that has netplay support threw my AT version 2.5.1, and Offline Roms as well
only issue its having just wont read RetroArch arcade cores like Mame core and Final alpha Neo core

try putting a "\" at end of rom path i.e your rompath becomes:
Code: [Select]
rompath              D:\attract mode\emulators\RetroArch\NEOGEO ROMS\roms\
Try that with MAME too.

Also %file in not needed in arguments try:
Code: [Select]
args    -L "D:\attract mode\emulators\RetroArch\cores\fbneo_libretro.dll" "[romfilename]"

thank you random for helping me out and giving me right arg to work for Mame core and  work fine with Fba core from 2005 to 2012  but some odd reason its wont work for the ISO with Fba neo core. I had the right .cue and .bin file for Art of fighting  and I had the both bios neocdz.zip and neogeo.zip in the system folder from retroarch. but just wont show up no matter what. I guess I can use a stand alone FBA or Mess or latest Mame to play Neo Geo cd without no netplay. Because I learn that only games that support netplay for the FBA core is only CPS 1,2,3 and there no support netplay for Neo geo MSV or CD roms for them at this moment. I know because I had long talk with the staff of Retroarch team. I can use your arg setting to use for the other cores at this time, Until now I'm happy with the setup, until future update from Retroarch, but if you have the time or when you feel like it, sure love to see if you can get one game running on FBA neo core threw AT  ;)

You are welcome. For Art of Fighting Cd are there any errors being registered? check last_run in attract mode folder. Also open the .cue file with note pad and check if the
 bin file name is exactly same as that of .cue file.

For now there new core added the retroarch and Im going to try this new core neocd_libretro.dll and see that will work for me
becuase when come to the roms for fba neo core can ready it fine. but when come to neo geo cdz cue and bin its wont read it, so I think I will give this new core a try and see where its lead me

here the link for it
