    Hi
    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 ?

    Thx for your help.

    Have you got the neogeo.zip in your rom and bios directory?

    Hi Floob,
    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 :
    • /opt/retropie/emulators/pifba
    • my default folder where all bios files are stored
    • roms/fba
    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…)
    Thx for your help.

    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:
    https://code.google.com/p/pifba/

    I would have thought any romset that is specifically for FBA should be fine.

    Hi Floob,
    about ISSUE#1 and continuing my investigation, I have tried another bios file.
    I found one

    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.
