[Android] [armeabi-v7a] bsnes cores crash on game launch

I’ve installed the RetroArch_ra32.apk (1.9.10 Stable) to an Android Amlogic device.



For SNES I was using the Snes9x 2005 Plus core, I thought it might give better performance on a low powered device. Until I noticed there was some graphics bugs in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island, and found out it’s a known bug in the earlier versions.

So I tried bsnes and bsnes-mercury-balanced, both crash when launching any game.

I also tried Mesen-S, which would launch games, but would crash launching any game that uses Super FX graphics, Yoshi’s Island, Mega Man X2, even though the bios are in the system folder.

It seems my only option is to use Snes9x 2010, which works, but it has slowdowns.

Here’s the list of cores that crash:

Mesen-S (Super FX games)
Mednafen Supafaust
