Problem with mupen64gles2 or 3 close the app

Hello. I can’t use these two cores. I try to upload a .z64 backup but it closes retroarch. I have the log that speaks of some error in the disk 8/16bit attach the log.

why we need to open a content for change core options… why? i know core have cfg file ok. but why the core menu options only popup with roms? if roms fail to load we can’t change the internal options…

Using old --libretro behavior. Setting libretro_directory to "/data/user/0/com.retroarch.aarch64/cores/" instead.

Thanks for including a log. :slight_smile:

It looks like your GPU driver doesn’t provide enough vulkan features for ParaLLEl-RDP to function:

VK_EXT_external_memory_host is not supported by this device. Application might run slower because of this.
paraLLEl-RDP: Using RDRAM size of 8388608 bytes.
This device probably does not support 8/16-bit storage. Make sure you're using up-to-date drivers!

As for why you can’t modify core options without loading a game, it’s because the core has to be loaded and running for RetroArch to talk to the core enough to even know what options it has.

I’m probably confused… parallel core n64 works here. and i remember old mupen core works aswell before this update… mupen64gles2 and 3 use parallel rdp?

It’s certainly trying to use it, at least in the end of your log there.

and now without loading a game how do I change the plugins? this thing is a bit uncomfortable, I realized that the core is activated only by loading a game, but it would not hurt to be able to intervene on the option variables before loading. since these options block the core

you can open the config/[corename]/[corename].opt file in a text editor and delete the offending lines, or just delete the whole file to return it to default settings.
