Gamestation Turbo ES Can't Find Any Systems

Unread post by Rombo Deadfish » Fri May 25, 2018 4:52 am

I just got a XU4Q. I flashed a 16GB SD Card with Gamestation Turbo, got to the desktop, performed all of the updates, restarted and launched ES and got a message saying "Can't Find Any Systems". I repeated the process a second time and got the same results. Any ideas on this?

Have you copied any ROMS on the system?
ES won't start if it doesn't find any gaming ROMS.

What ROMS?
Where did you put them?
And what file-extensions do they have?
I just started ES on my system and there were no issue at all I'm seeing hundred of ROMS.

I copied the Roms into the N64 folder. The files have the .z64 extension.

I tried another platform that runs emulation station and it started up fine on the first launch.

I have been trying with SD Cards. I just got a 16GB eMMC card today. I will try with that later. I will also try roms for a different emulator.

Thanks

I have the same problem.

.z64 games don't show up in emulationstation when in the N64 folder, but other extensions in their folders appear in emulationstation.

yes it seems the .z64 extension is missing in the es_systems.cfg file. I will soon make an update that will fix this and add other file extensions.

I fixed this by changing the es_systems.cfg file. I changed n64-xbmc to libretro-xbmc mupen64plus.

the z64 extension was added with one of the last updates to the es_system.txt.
Using libretro-xbmc mupen64plus works fine, but I left n64-xbmc in case I want to switch to mupen64plus standalone which normally has better performance, but is way harder to configure.
