Re: Bios Issue Maybe? Help!

Burn the useless gog-romsets or any xml garbage the updater is forcing down your throat by default Do the other xml files put beside romsets.xml interfere with the NeoGeo core? AFAIK it loads only romsets.xml and you have to rename other xml files if you want to use them (see https://github.com/MiS...

Please see attached file.

Thanks!
Since, at first sight, it seems to me a default ini file, can you delete it?
If you made some customizations I didn't see, please make a brand new ini with only the custom values.
Please retry and let me know.

Thank you.

Re: Arcade cores not loading

If you run the script again...it happens again. Apparently someone really wanted the mame and hbmame folders to be in the game directory. And, that is fine. But no warning is not cool at all. In any case, I moved my mame and hbmame folders to the game directory so that this is hopefully not an issu...

Re: Newbie questions

The 2K file appears to be sent by GitHub when it thinks there is abusive downloads happening. This is likely more common on an initial download when fetching everything, rather than an update, when there are fewer updates happening. Perhaps the updater script should be able to recognize this 2K fil...

There is. Basically user has to choose the primary output he wants to use. So scaler and framebuffer output will be routed correctly. By default it's HDMI. By setting direct_video=1 in INI, it will be routed to VGA and direct video. Ok, so, for the sake of compatibility, we have still to support th...
