I would like to first apologize because I am quite new to the linux side of computers. I am in the process of setting up various retropie things and want to use pifba to fill in the fighting game gap that the default mame leaves. However, nothing I can find really says how to get it going through retropie or how to simply use the program in a way that a complete newcomer can understand.
Now onto what I have tried to do. I have attempted to run install.sh from the command line, but get a good amount of “no such file or directory” errors. Trying to run a game through “./fba2x roms/(romname).zip” using street fighter alpha 2 brings up a screen with a loading bar for a quick second and then goes back to the command line i was at previously, using it with marvel super heroes vs street fighter sends it to a black screen where nothing happens until I hit escape. Trying to run “./fbacapex” does nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I hope enough information was provided to give you an idea of whats going on.
Well this is a little weird. I was looking for the es_systems.cfg file and when accessed with “nano ~/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg” the screen was just blank. I then booted back into emulation station and the final burn alpha screen was there with some roms on it! Alpha 2 still crashes when its run, but marvel super heroes ran (albeit a little choppily but I havent overclocked yet). So I guess now my problem is to get my controller working with retropie and figure out why some roms wont start.
