I am trying to start FBA roms with pifba (fba2x and emulationstation), but they don’t run, excepted ‘1944.zip’ (15.087mb).
I have tried more than 40 FBA roms but 95% are failed with ‘segmenation error’ and 5% start (=loading OK) but display a blank screen.
Could you help me to solve this issue ?
or what are the well-run roms specificities ?

Have you got the neogeo.zip in your rom and bios directory?patrick500Participant12/14/2014 at 10:27Post count: 20
After investigation, there are 2 issues :
ISSUE#1 : NEOGEO roms failed with FBA emulator
I can’t start a NEOGEO rom.
Yesterday I have followed your good video.
I have added the neogeo.zip file in those 3 locations :
• my default folder where all bios files are stored
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work.
For information, when I wrote : 1944 works, in fact I realise that 1944 is a pure FBA game (and not neogeo one). Sorry for the confusion.
So for my part, no neogeo game works.
In your video, I can see that you use roms version FBA 0.2.97.08 by lovok.
I didn’t find those files and I use may be another version of the roms. The issue could come from this difference… but I am not sure, else lot of people should meet this issue.
Concerning the neogeo.zip, it seems to be the same (1.316Mb from Windows explorer).
Does the issue come from rom version ? bios version ? other(s) ?
Could you advise something ?
ISSUE#2 : FBA roms with segmentation fault error
Now the FBA roms work.
I use CPS1 & CPS2 roms and they work. They are pure ‘FBA roms’ for FBA emulator.
I continue having the message on 90% when a rom is starting :
line xxxx : #code# segmentation error
but it WORKS well.
(if someone has got the solution…)

For issue #1, are you definitely using a romset specifically for FBA?
I’ve since found having the bios zip in the main bios folder and the rom folder itself seems to work fine.
This may also help:
I would have thought any romset that is specifically for FBA should be fine.patrick500Participant12/14/2014 at 16:42Post count: 20
I took the file : FB_Alpha_v0.2.97.29_neogeo_BIOS.zip
As usually I put the file on the 3 locations and now it WORKS (finally!).
It works not for 100% of the neogeo roms but only half.
So my issue comes from bios version.
I consider my issue is solved.
Thanks again.patrick500Participant12/14/2014 at 16:43Post count: 20
