Trying to get a few CPS1/2 titles working with RetroPie. I see people finding ways to do it online but their messages stop shy of explaining how they did it. I’ve checked the compatibility list and a few that should be working are not. I’ve tried moving between the different piFBA emulators but the only one that seems capable of starting them is the standard “piFBA.” When I launch using that I get to what appears to be an 8-bit piFBA loading screen but then it just cuts to black and sits there. I don’t have speakers hooked up to my Pi 2 yet so I can’t verify if it’s just an image issue, but I’ve tried experimenting between different settings to no avail.
Anyone have any ideas that I might be missing?
Thanks!wowzer22Participant12/30/2015 at 09:42Post count: 22
Should note that I’m fairly new at all of this but am decently tech savvy!kitchukParticipant12/30/2015 at 11:55Post count: 207
I would recommend using lr-fba-nextwowzer22Participant12/30/2015 at 18:00Post count: 22
As mentioned, attempting to run any version other than the standard piFBA doesn’t work at all. See the error I get from trying to use the latest version of lr-fba-next attached. I’ve tried re-installing, switching rom versions and it doesn’t seem to make a difference. Feels like I’m missing a step?
The system just hangs for a few after that and then kicks me back to the emustation interface.herbfargusMember12/30/2015 at 19:13Post count: 1858
They use different romsets:

Right but according to those charts I’m using the correct rom sets. I’ve combed that list quite a few times to ensure I’m using the right roms/sets.
Trying to rebuild the piFBA/retroarch/lr-FBA-next bios now to see if maybe something got screwed up in the latest retropie update…wowzer22Participant12/30/2015 at 19:58Post count: 22
Well, rebuilding from source didn’t seem to help. Any other ideas? I know people have these working, can’t figure out why I can’t get them running on my system :)!
Now when I try to use lr-fba-next as suggested I no longer get the error messages, just a few equals signs at the top of the screen, which then kick me back to the emustation/retropie menu…herbfargusMember12/30/2015 at 20:02Post count: 1858
So you ran the roms through clrmamepro with the proper dat sets? (Doesn’t hurt to try even if you have the same romsets listed)wowzer22Participant12/30/2015 at 20:31Post count: 22
AH! I see, I was totally misunderstanding that set. So quick question, do I rebuild using one of the lr-fba-next .dat files or just the regular pifba dat file in the instructions?petrockblogKeymaster12/30/2015 at 21:00Post count: 1827
