Mesen HDPacks activating erratically


I’m setting up some HDpacks for the Mesen core and while I can get them to work, the behavior doesn’t make any sense to me.

  • Open RetroArch -> Load Content -> Select ROM… HDpack loads fine. :heavy_check_mark:
  • Open RetroArch -> Recent ROMs -> Select same ROM as above… HDPack doesn’t work. :no_entry_sign:
  • Launch ROM from frontend (Attract Mode) … HDpack doesn’t work. :no_entry_sign:

Getting the last one to work is my main concern, but I’m also confused why the first two methods behave differently.
