(2012-11-03, 08:49)malte Wrote: New test version available: 1.0.6

List of changes:

Import Games:
  • support for roms and artwork on smb shares (does not work if you add username and password to the smb uri)
  • update archive.vg scraper in config.xml
  • bug: "Rom File Mask" changes after rescraping a single game
  • create artwork parent folder if not present
Browse Games:
  • Frodo support: games were not shown in Frodo nightlies (changes in addItem method)
  • provide properties of most played games for skins to show on home screen
Launch Games:
  • Frodo support: replace method executehttpapi with executejsonrpc
  • add option to leave disc selector without launching a game
  • bug: disc selector not working with games that have no description

It has been a long time since the last release. Sorry for the delay, I hope there will be more constant progress in the next months. And I am happy to announce that there is a new player in the team: say hello to redkillerSmile. He provided the smb patch and already started to work on other issues too.

This release provides some fixes that I already added some weeks ago but did not manage to publish yet. It also contains support for Frodo API changes and new support for skinners to show most played games on the home screen (not yet implemented in one of the skins but this should follow).


Previous version: 1.0.5

Thanks for the new version malte, looking good, and welcome redkiller! Keep up the awesome work!

After the 'CApplication:: create() failed - Check log file and that it is writeable' issue raised its head again on my system, I began to experiement with using eventghost to start xbmc after I close down the emulator running with my remote, after commenting out the lines to launch xbmc in applaunch.bat. Works a treat and have not experienced the error in the 15 or so emulators Ive just loaded and closed.Laugh

OK, I have tried to read through lots of things on the net for my problem with this thing. So Im sorry in advance, I am completely new to this, anyways I can scrape for import, I can do that, I cannot gt any emulator to start any games thoguh. I have tried drive letter, exact path %ROMS% to hope that would start emulators, it does not work. Command line prompt starts, then leaves like nothing happened. I am on windows 7 32 bit. Can anyone help me with this please?

@toki5: Enable debug logging in XBMC and the addon and see if you can find any clues. Most likely your ROM path is wrong.

I'm having an issue where it launches the game, but nothing ever loads -- it just sits on the XBMC menu and after 'launching' i can still scroll and select other games.

Looking at xbmc.log there aren't any errors, it just doesn't appear on screen.

edit: going to start from scratch tonight to make sure it's not me

Whenever I attempt to launch a game I get the following:

What happens when you run this line from a command prompt:

Code:
"/home/pi/RetroPie/emulatorcores/fceu-next/libretro.so" "/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/nes/Bomberman.nes"

Sure that the .so file is the one you want to launch?

Yes, it all runs fine running from cli -- I'm running this on Raspbmc (raspberry pi) which doesn't have a window manager; will that cause an issue?

Are you sure? Please, confirm that's the executable file with the command:

Code:
file /home/pi/RetroPie/emulatorcores/fceu-next/libretro.so

You should see something like this:

Code:
/usr/bin/ls: ELF 64-bit LSB executable [...]

Don't pay attention in the pc architecture but in "LSB executable". If it's not an you will see this:

Code:
/usr/lib/libc-2.16.so: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object [...]

If this is not an executable, look for it and reconfigure RCB.

This is the output:

/home/pi/RetroPie/emulatorcores/fceu-next/libretro.so: ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, ARM, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, BuildID[sha1]=0x14c27d64d6fc4c7ed5afd3221d8a34550b6f3268, not stripped

I'm....not sure what that means -.-
Well, now when I manually run the command to run the emulator and rom, I get a segfault. So that's pretty cool.

This is the interesting part of your output:
Code:
ELF 32-bit LSB shared object
So, you are trying to launch a file that is not executable. There must be some other file that is meant to execute the emulator.

Can you show us the output of this command:
Code:
ls - l /home/pi/RetroPie/emulatorcores/fceu-next
