parallellibretro.dll Retroarch core not launching N64 games
« on: January 05, 2020, 01:16:25 AM »
Sorry I'm a new user but I'm having trouble with two Retroarch cores. The mednafenpsx core issue has been reported but I'm also seeing a similar failure to launch with parallel_n64_libretro.dll. I noticed the Runway app is listing the old file name for this core 'parallellibretro' but it was updated sometime last March 2019 (or earlier) to use the new name. I tried renaming the core with the old filename but that didn't help it launch.

Do you mean that you opened "BaseSystems.xml" with a text editor, searched for that line:
Code: [Select]
<Cmd hidden="true" name="RetroArch [parallel_libretro.dll]" value="-f -L cores\parallel_libretro.dll &quot;%path\%file%ext&quot;" extensions=".n64,.z64,.zip"/>changed it to
Code: [Select]
<Cmd hidden="true" name="RetroArch [parallel_n64_libretro.dll]" value="-f -L cores\parallel_n64_libretro.dll &quot;%path\%file%ext&quot;" extensions=".n64,.z64,.zip"/>saved the document, then opened mGalaxy, created a new system with this core ?
