    When I try to open any GBA rom I get the same message line 283: 3070 “Illegal restriction” . I have tried updating the bios for the emulator but that has not helped. I have attached a picture and if you look on the right of the picture it seems the ROM’s file name has backslashes added to the while space in the file name and I think that is the issue but I don’t know why the slashes appear. I have listed below what is entered on the 283rd line in the file path that is on the left of the error message.

    eval $command

    Please any help would be appreciated I got this for my birthday gift and am still learning the ropes.
    Thanks!!

    Please can you try with the latest retropie image – the binary hasn’t lived in that location since retropie 2.3 and a lot has changed since then.

    oh wait, that’s an ancient test file – so unsure which version you are on – es_systems.cfg is in /etc/emulationstation

    have you tried updating the binary (updating retropie-setup script first, then menu 5 to install individual emulators, then choosing gpsp) ?

    If that still doesn’t work I’ll have to check myself – never actually tested this emulator 🙂
