This is my first post here. Over the last few days, I’ve been playing around with RetroArch in Linux (Lubuntu distribution).
I’ve got it working for Atari 2600 and Atari 7800. The Odyssey is giving me problems. I’ve just installed the typical Magnavox Videopac/Odyssey2 core from the Core Updated within RetroArch.
I’ve downloaded no-intro roms from various sources, always the same results. RetroArch scans the directory and adds the roms to a playlist. By the way, I’ve left the roms zipped up. But when I try to load an Odyssey2 rom, it will either take me to a black screen, or it will flash a black screen and then take me back to the menu with a “Failed to Load Content” message.
Also, and I don’t know if this is related, but no matter what rom I choose, whether it’s an Atari rom or an Odyssey rom, RetroArch will ask me which core to use before I can load the rom. It’s like it’s not auto-associating. But that might not be related.
Does anyone have an idea what I’m doing wrong regarding the Odyssey games? I will be happy to try anything you suggest and post the results, if that helps.
