Hi to all great community here!
I want to start this project, created to sort the arcade games of my favorite genres.
I've sorted the approximately 400 roms from FBA 0.2.97.39 romset by 4 genres: Beat'em'up, vsFighting, Run'n'gun, Shoot'em'up.
I have chosen RetroArch and FBA core because it is the best arcade solution on GPD XD.
But since this is a huge amount of games, I do not have the possibility to check absolutely every one of them.
So I am hope for your help.
I made a batch script (simple .bat file) that should be placed in a directory with full FBA 0.2.97.39 non-merged
romset, then you only need to run it.
It will create a subfolders with 4 genre names "Beat'em'up", "Fighting", "Run'n'gun", "Shmup" and copy all the relevant zips to it (including the necessary BIOS) - total size is about 4gb.
(I've also add some clones, such as tmnt and sunset riders 2 player versions, or clones that are differences depending on the region)
Then you need to move these folders to the device, download RetroArch, go to "download core" section, download core Arcade (FB Alpha)
(not FBA2012 or other
) and test, test, test roms.
According to the rules of this forum, I can not give you a link to FBA 0.2.97.39 romset, but you can easily google it.
Just google "fba 0.2.97.39 romset", find a link to the site archive.org and it will be there as a torrent file.
Or you can find it at pleasuredome tracker (but you need to register).
Remember you need non-merged romset.
I hope for you help, if you find non-working roms, please report it in this thread.
Let's make the best arcade rom-pack for GPD XD Rename .txt to .bat and go on
