Emulator on OSMC Kodi 18
#1
Hi guys,

I'm running OSMC Kodi 18 (alpha): https://discourse.osmc.tv/t/testing-kodi.../20631/115

I'm trying to load roms but it doesn't seem to work. I was able to setup the controller, define a remote path for my roms (thought, the path does only shows .zip).

When I run a rom, it won't load. This is the error I get:

08:41:39.360 T:1958670336 NOTICE: VideoPlayer: Opening: nfs://10.20.30.95/mnt/md0/Public/RW/Roms/NES/Super Mario Bros. 3 (USA).zip

What test can I do to make it work? Maybe it's missing a dependencies in the compile version. I want to help the developer of this version.

Thanks

Is it really possible to load the roms from an nfs share? Did you try to load a local placed rom?

What about the zip format? Is it possible that your osmc doesn't understand this format? Did you try to load the unzipped rom?

I don't use game emulation within kodi and don't use osmc at the moment. I have an nvidia shield and use android tv for retro gaming.

I'll try locally.

Uncompressed, OSMC doesn't see the file

You can see the status of the core addons here: Game_add-ons (wiki)
Some of them support VFS.

Does VFS means NFS and SMB?

Did you enable a fitting emulator?

Go to "Addons" → "My/User Addons" → "Game Addons" →"Emulators" → enable some emulators

Descriptions shows which platform is supported by this emulator and what filetypes are possible.

I can run "Super Mario Bros 3 (Europe).nes" with "NES/Famicom (Nestopia UE)" Emulator. (On current OSMC build)

Dude, seriously? The missing part of the puzzle. It is crashing for one game but at least, I'm seeing it and it does something.

So guessing the only thing missing is the scrapper Smile

Thanks!

And OpenGL based emulators like mupen64plus Wink
