    I have a psvita tv with enso and trying to play the adventures of lolo 2 (Japanese version)
    on retroarch.

    I've got several version of the rom and tried to run it with all 3 different nes cores that retro-arch comes with.
    Retroarch was able to find it via scanning , but every time I try to launch the game my system crashes.

    Thanks for an pointers.

    NES core shouldn't require a bios, no. None of the Nintendo cores should. Tried redownloading Retroarch, it could be a corrupt installation?

    Not that I know of - I can boot up any GBA roms just fine.

    If anything they require famicom disk system bios. How recent is the build of retroarch you are using? Despite the differences between versions have you tried the usa release of adventures of lolo 2? Also if you have adrenaline installed on your ps vita you can use the nes/famicom emulator called nesterj.

    I believe I have the latest version.
    I now have the disksys.rom , I made it into a zip and put it next to my nes rom and it's still not working.

    I have adrenaline, are you saying nesterj is the way to go?
