I’ve got 2 Windows PCs, one with an external hard drive that has all my games on it. I connected these PC’s via a single ethernet cable, and installed RetroArch on its own on the 2nd PC.
I mapped the external Hard Drive from PC 1 to the X:\ on PC 2. This let’s me navigate, copy, paste, etc while on I’m on the 2nd PC. Retroarch is able to see the folders in there, including my games all on the X:\ - so far so good.
- I was able to open Tomb Raider 2.chd with Beetle PSX
- I was able to open Chrono Trigger.zip with BNES
- I can’t open Castlevania.zip with FCEUMM
- I can’t open Sonic 2.zip with Genesis Plus GX
I can’t explain/understand why Chrono Trigger is able to open, but not Sonic 2 or Castlevania. Both these games give me a “content failed to extract from compressed folder” message, but not Chrono Trigger.
Chrono Trigger is obviously MUCH larger than Castlevania, so it’s not a size issue. Which I feel like is also ruled out by Tomb Raider.chd coming across without issue, given it’s size in relation to all of them.
They are all .zip, so I don’t know where to go from here. I can’t just uncompress everything, because on top of how much space that would take I would also have to completely rebuild my LaunchBox setup and omg I am so not into doing that for the 3rd time.
Please help. I almost have my setup exactly how I want it. At least for now Chrono Trigger works, eh? lol
