    I have the roms in the right directory... root/vba/roms

    but VBA claims there isn't any...Worked fine yesterday before updating to the newest Homebrew Channel.

    i personally dont run into this issue using VBA after updating to HBC 0.8.
    Try deleting and re-creating the directory *shrug*

    I didn't test HBC yet but, shouldn't it be in root/hbc_apps/vba/roms/ ?
    The apps pack has its additionnal directories in hbc_apps/ so I thought it was recognized as SD root by the HBC.

    Oh you're right,
    I misunderstood while decompressing the apps_pack because of tar.gz (there is an additional hbc_apps inside).

    so the VBA directory has to be inside the apps folder? I always thought it had to be in the root of the sd card...i'm confused

    I did delete the directory and remade it...still nothing...maybe if I completely delete the elf file and redownload?



    EDIT: Shit, redownloaded completely erased the elf and replaced it..same error [​IMG]

    Jesus Christ, if you people would search the forums you'd find your answer...

    As far as the DIR issue, you need TWO VBA DIRs on your SD card if you are using HBC.

    root/apps/vba/

    root/vba/roms

    No, have you tried using ROMs with no spaces in the filename?

    It might be a bad rom dump. Have you tried getting the ROMs from somewhere else?
