    I put a ROM into the /gba folder and it shows up, but when entering the ROM, it looks like it’s about to run, then it goes back to emulation station.

    For reference, I put my ROM in via USB.

    Here’s my log:

    I’m guessing it has something to do with “req sound [basic.launch]”, but I’m not sure as to what that is.

    Make sure you have the GBA bios in the bios folder

    https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Game-Boy-Advance

    And lr-gpsp doesn’t support some ROMs so try using another emulator as well

    How do I add the BIOS to the folder using a USB?

    There should also be a bios folder along with the ROMs folder that autopopulate when you’ve plugged it in.

    This page details how to do it:

    I’ve just got “configs” and “roms”

    edit: “cd RetroPie/BIOS” exists, but there’s no bios folder on the usb when I take it out

    update: my BIOS kinda works (I manually copied it through the terminal), by kinda I mean on one emulator.

    Buuuuut:
    it says game config missing (path is /home/RetroPie/roms/gba/game_config.txt)
    and bad jump fffffffc (ffffffff) (0)

    I thought it created a bios folder. Its been a while since I last tried it. Do you not have an Ethernet cable or WiFi dobgle? Also did you try switching the emulator as the ROM loads?

    Wifi dongle is coming tomorrow – I’ll try to put the BIOS in that way. Do you have a link to an authentic GBA BIOS? Maybe the one I tried doesn’t work.

    Also, what does it mean when it says the game config is missing (see above)?

    Thank you so much for all your help.

    For legal reasons you’re on your own with the bios. There’s also a way you can use the file manager to copy over the bios. The configs are probably related to lr-gpsp- there is a configs setting for each game, but it doesn’t support all the games which would explain why its not working. Again- try another emulator from the run command menu.
