    So, simply put, got a co-worker who wanted me to hack and get some extra games on their snes classic, since they weren't as tech savvy.

    Well, strange thing is, even with the settings and config that I had on mine, I'm finding that this one just will not load any NES games. SNES, Genesis, 32X, even N64 games all work. Just NES games don't. Even tried re-making the hakchi directory, re-copy the retroarch package that I knew worked, but I'm still getting the same result. What can I try doing now to get that working so I can send it back all nice and ready to go?

    probably at home
    None of the Nes games are working or just some aren't working (like Castlevania 3)?

    At present, none. One of the games happens to be castlevania 3, but selecting any game just kicks back to the select screen.

    Have you tried re-installing retroarch core?

    Thought i did that, but it's still happening. I waa starting to wonder if i would be within my right to try and hit the system reset/restore function on the snes classic itself? Or if i could like, flash to stock and start over from it?

    I suggest trying that one last time as this has happened to me and re-installing Retroarch core fixed this for me.

    Also, are you using built in canoe or nes core?

    I've no idea at this point in time. I'm using hakchi 2.31 on the pc.

    I don't understand it, because my own personal unit is flawless. Even loaded up Minus Infinity with no errors at all, but this one doesn't load anything.

    Check command line it will say canoe built in core or fceux or other nes cores. Done many Minis and some can be a pain even though setup like other working minis. I feel your pain.

    Well if it says bin/clover in command line then retroarch is handling nes games

    In older retroarchs you needed to install nes core like other systems

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of command line; stuff like this reminds me why.

    At least looking at it on the hakchi program, seems all the NES games are showing as /bin/nes. I'm guessing that's my problem, right?

    I'm pretty sure bin/clover and bin/nes are handles by retroarch

    What version of restroarch did you install?

    I (re)tried with the same retroArch that I used with my first, working snes classic. I can confirm the Genesis/32X games work and at least that the n64 games load (though don't have a controller with analog sticks so can't really play some of them). Only the NES games are not working on this other one right now
    one of the affected nes games

    You can try clover and see if they load

    Delete then redrag into Haxchi

    Can also try newer version of retroarch if there is one

    according to this, it's still 1.1d... even tried the additional-mods script to try and force nestopia, but I still get the same behavior. any NES game just kicks back to the main screen.

    I believe retroarch is on 1.7x Try the new one bud, should fix your issue

    if I try googling "Retroarch clover", that linked project is literally the only thing it points me at. So, again, what are you talking about?

    sorry for not reading the whole thread.

    But im pretty sure it might just be your configuration.

    Since several revisions, the nes emulator loaded on hackhi, its wrong, so you need to use a core, and specify it via hackhi :)

    Is that simple.

    Okay, giving that a try... found some nice improvements in terms of new cores, true. but trying to sync and I keep getting a 451 error.

    Okay, somehow got past that, re-checked that I installed retroarch mod(s) and cores, but again... no NES games load. It just kicks back to the main menu. Every time.
