I believe what you’re missing is the GBA bios file.
Use your Google-fu to find the gba_bios.bin file and drop it in your BIOS folder found at /home/pi/RetroPie/bios
You should be good to go from there.
Hope this helps!
PS: I’m pretty sure you don’t need to connect to the internet to play GBA gamesmomaw27Participant11/09/2015 at 05:07Post count: 56
I have all of my ROMS on a 128GB thumbdrive with the es_systems.cfg for all systems pointing directly to my USB drive, and it works great.
A few things I discovered in the process:
1. I had to get rid of the tilde “~” in the roms path when pointing to my USB stick. This is Linuxese for ‘go to root’.
2. I had to be sure where Retropie saw my stick. In my case it was USB0.
So my roms path for SNES looks like this:
This works well for me, but I am looking into using symlinks in the future because every time I update my systems I have to re-edit my es_systems.cfg file… which is a pain.momaw27Participant11/02/2015 at 16:03Post count: 56momaw27Participant11/02/2015 at 16:02Post count: 56momaw27Participant10/30/2015 at 18:59Post count: 56momaw27Participant10/17/2015 at 17:19Post count: 56momaw27Participant10/16/2015 at 23:43Post count: 56momaw27Participant10/02/2015 at 16:15Post count: 56momaw27Participant09/30/2015 at 21:56Post count: 56
To make thing a lot easier in terms of PSX emulation I have completely switched to .PBP files. These were originally used for PSX games to be playable on the PSP. No need for .cue files or .bins… The .PBP files work flawlessly in Retropie… Give them a try. I think you’ll like them.
A bonus is that multiple disc games are combined into one .PBP file… Much easier.momaw27Participant09/30/2015 at 21:50Post count: 56
Yes, I’d love to find the answer to this as well.momaw27Participant09/30/2015 at 21:48Post count: 56momaw27Participant09/30/2015 at 15:34Post count: 56momaw27Participant09/28/2015 at 19:48Post count: 56momaw27Participant09/25/2015 at 15:52Post count: 56momaw27Participant09/25/2015 at 15:51Post count: 56momaw27Participant09/23/2015 at 23:06Post count: 56momaw27Participant09/23/2015 at 16:01Post count: 56momaw27Participant09/12/2015 at 19:07Post count: 56
Your emulators will show up when you put some roms in their correct places on your SD card.
Hope that helps! If you need more help, don’t hesitate to ask!

I think this is what I used to play off of my thumb drive.momaw27Participant08/26/2015 at 23:36Post count: 56

Yep, I have the same issue. But I have not figured out why it happens.momaw27Participant08/24/2015 at 02:24Post count: 56momaw27Participant08/23/2015 at 16:24Post count: 56momaw27Participant08/22/2015 at 23:46Post count: 56momaw27Participant08/22/2015 at 23:45Post count: 56momaw27Participant08/22/2015 at 03:22Post count: 56momaw27Participant08/22/2015 at 03:08Post count: 56momaw27Participant08/17/2015 at 18:46Post count: 56momaw27Participant07/30/2015 at 20:46Post count: 56
I’ve got a different problem. It takes about 1min for me to get to the commandline after hitting F4. Does anyone else have this issue?

I had this same issue and I tracked it down to two things:
1. slightly mismatched ROMS for the particular emulator you’ve chosen (grab the .dat file for your emulator and run it and your roms through clrmame to see what you’re missing)
2. some missing roms in the NEOGEO.ZIP bios file
Which emulator are you using? I’ve successfully gotten almost all NeoGeo games running with lr-fba.
