    I have just set up retroPie 3.0 (beta 2) on my Raspberry Pi 2.

    I downloaded and installed some neo geo roms. When they run, it launches FBA instead of GnGeo.

    Is this because the Roms may not be 0.138?

    Does it matter and if so, how do I set it so that it runs GnGeo instead?

    if you connect a keyboard and hit the x key as the rom is loading, you can select the default emulator for neogeo games, but isn’t pifba faster the gngeo? i use it for all my neo geo games and they run top speed (although i did turn the screensmoothing/videosmoothing option off in the config file)

    i heard gngeo doesn’t use the pi’s GPU, so is slower. pifba does.

    I quite like gngeo, but maybe I need to try pifba some more.

    What about FBA Libretro? I swear by it on my Wii and Windows.

    Pressing ‘X’ doesn’t seem to do anything but I will try it again.

    I only mentioned it because I watched Floobs video and just expended the other emulator.

    Thanks for letting me know.
