Core difficulty

Postby Turkminate » Tue May 19, 2020 4:59 pm

I have downloaded the Atari 2600 and nes cores and put the bin files in the cores folder and on the root of the card I press c for cores on loading select a bank press enter to list cores but it just goes back to the bank screen
Can anybody tell me what I am doing wrong

Each core needs to be in its own subdirectory within the machines folder, named core.bit. See the instructions in docs directory of your SD card, or here: ... ctions.txt

All done successfully but now when pressing enter to run a core (I have the Atari 2600 core and nes core) the tv displays no signal and the picture is lost
I am using hdmi and have tried both 50 hz and 60 hz modes but to no avail
Please tell me what I need to do to get it working as I am eager to use the new cores

Many of the alt cores only support VGA at exactly 50Hz, and ps/2 keyboards only. Remember these are mostly ports from other machines which are not as flexible with video modes as the Next is.

There is documentation for each core indicating what is supported.
