    Currently on 1.0.0.1 - FBA Cores NEO v0.2.97.28

    I can't seem to get a bunch of Neogeoroms to load. Sengoku 3 for example just gives me a "failed to load" message, and metal slug 3 produces a black screen and spits me back to the homebrew channel.

    Any idea what the issue is?

    I'm gonna guess blindly but some games simply dont work on wii due to being too big. theres not enough space in ram to load them. that is potentially fixable by using sd card or usb to pretend to be ram, but the retroarch people put that kinda as the lowest priority possible. (they generally dont like the wii version because other systems are just easier to deal with due to more power and ram space) i think max size that supported right now (unzipped) is like, 32mb or something.

    also, with every retroarch update, some fba games stopped working while others suddenly do work. you could check out older versions of the fba core and maybe some of them will play it. you'll just have to accept that only a handful of the neo geo library works on wii

    yes, not enough ram for some games. Though, someone claimed that he launched Sengoku 3 (with 1.0.0 maybe?). You need the correct neogeo.zip file. For fba, it's a bit annoying cause you need the latest roms for the best compatibility each time the core is updated.
