    How to replicate the problem:

    snes games/megadrives are working, but I can’t start my NES games.
    When I start a nes game, the runcommand screen comes up and it goes back to the selection screen with all games.

    The emulator is lr-fceumm, but also with lr-nestopia it’s not working.
    The roms are playable on the computer with an emulator.
    Also I tried a NES game in the snes folder, but also then it’s not starting.

    /tmp/runcommand.log gives also no error.
    Has anyone an idea how I can find out what the cause is of this problem?



    Did you check the wiki? – probably your rom set

    Make sure your roms have headers. Roms without headers will not work.

    you will have to do your own research to get the correct romset though.
