Run NEO GEO CD games on Retroarch (mame_libretro) via RocketLauncher

FB Alpha doesn’t support chd apparently.

So I tried this method, and had some weird results. First let me say I like keeping a separate cfg file for each console. They are named after one. Here are some of my trials.

  1. retroarch.cfg, Load Retroarch, Load MAME Core, Load CHD. RESULT = Black Screen

  2. SNK Neo Geo CD.cfg, Load Retroarch, Load MAME Core, Load CHD. RESULT = Crash

  3. retroarch.cfg, Load RocketLauncher, Load Game. RESULT = Game starts, but in background, have to alt tab to bring it to front.

  4. SNK Neo Geo CD.cfg, Load RocketLauncher, Load Game. RESULT = Crash

So there we go, nothing seems to work exactly as it should. I find it odd that whenever I save a config under the console name seems to crash it every time.

I tried it here and it ran like a dream.

Using a cmd file with: neocdz -cdrom “/Games/Romz/MESS/Software/NeoCDz/Puzzle Bobble (ngcd-083e).chd” -rp /Games/Romz/MESS/bios/


#45

I would appreciate if you could help me get this going. I finally got some chd files and I set it up as you described in your first post but when the MAME screen pops up RA freezes.


#46

Do you have a Link for it Mate as I can’t find any in the Documentation area on Homepage


#47

Go into the core updater. It’s near the top.


#48

Theres a guide here [Guide] Play Neo Geo CD ISO games using FBAlpha


#49

I read that. I don’t have isos. I have bin/cue and another set of chd.


#50

I have the ISO and .Cue version and ISO Ones only 1 Works but has no Background Music just Sound Effects

Also can’t get the CHD Versions to load.


#51

If you’re using CHDs, you can use MAME and also follow the guide here, there is an example included on Neo Geo CD


#52

I will give that a Go


#53

Well I have now tried bin/cue, iso, and chd and have yet to be able to get this to work. If anyone else could chime in that would be great. I have been wanting to play these games for a while now and I like RA cores because they have save states.

Thank you.
