How to replicate the problem:
Basically I have all my NES roms working which is awesome! But all of my SNES roms don’t, I start the rom, I see the “press any key to load options” then the screen fades black and I’m back at my select a SNES rom screen. No errors or anything and I don’t see anything in that .log file. Ideas?
Final update solved! I only tried the chmod 777 on the roms that were .smc For kicks I put the .sfc roms back on, deleted the .smc roms and gave the .sfc roms chmod 777. Changed the emu back to pocketnes and perfect!
So at least for me the forumla is
2. .sfc roms
3. make sure all roms have chmod 777
you shouldn’t need to chmod them at all if you copied them over with the pi user. 777 is actually wrong for these files, since they are not executables. better would be “644” for user rw, and r for group / all
That’s why I asked for the output of ls -la so I can check the files/permissions as maybe they are owned by root or something.
Yeah the 777 was lazyness. Normally I would freak if people just gave full access to files on my linux server at work, but since this is a private “machine” I wasn’t worried about it. I don’t think they were owned by root since root password is disabled since 3.0. I got the roms onto the pi via usb but for some reason they wouldn’t auto sync so I just
