I hate to say this, but I am locking out BIG STYLE, I have been trying most of the morning, well past couple of hours, it is very slow on the splash screen, I am trying to add collections, but often when I run the program I have had to hard reset my computer about three times now as it locks up, even alt ctrl and delete does not work.

I never had such problems in the earlier build.

My PC is pretty decent spec

i5-3670k @ 3.5 ghz
4 gig of ram at the moment
64 bit os
a 780 ti graphics card

Regards

Mark

Ok, this is very odd; you're the first to report such problems. Which versions did you use in the past?
Please upload your log.txt file as well; I'd like to take a look.
How large is your meta.db file? Have you tried removing it, and then start RetroFE, and let it rest for a while? Creating the meta.db can take a bit of time depending on how many meta XML files you've provided.

Other than the error in the Future Pinball.xml I see nothing out of the ordinary. There's a lot of XML files to convert to meta.db, which takes quite a bit of time, but other than that nothing serious I can find.
When you start it again after the new meta.db creation, what does it do that it shouldn't be doing? Can you upload that log.txt file as well?

It seems to be fine now for some reason, before it was just locking up and needed to hard reset.

The main problem now is the collections pack for the super nintendo system, that just shows xml and then the file details in the header, so looks as if something has not been closed off somewhere.

Do you need a new copy of the SNES xml file? It's part of the SNES set on EmuMovies or I could upload it here.

That is the file that I am using to be honest, I downloaded it yesterday, that is the only one that does not work for some reason.

If you could attach it here though that would be fantastic.

Hiya,

I think we have our wires crossed here, this is the wrong file, I think what you would call it is the story file?

As in Nintendo Game Boy is an 8 bit handheld console blah blah blah

That is the part that is not loading, it is coming up with xml version for the snes.

Regards

Mark

I now know why, for some reason in collections the story file contains

Also the artwork like the video intro does not play so generally I would say that collection is buggered lol

<?xml version="1.0"?>

Ah, the system artwork got scrambled on the EmuMovies set? I'll have to look into that then.

It looks as if it is a total dud to be honest, I am just trying to download it again, just to see if it was a bad download my end.

The picture files do not show previews like they usually do, and also the video does not show as it should, as if they were either cut off during download or files corrupted.

Odd, and it's just the SNES collection that does this? I'll give it a closer look this evening.

Yep just this one, I have tried all the others, they show the artwork, the story etc.

I have redownloaded again and collections Super Nintendo Entertainment System - System Artwork non of these are loading, not even in a paint package. The story is pretty much an xml file

The medium artwork seems fine,

All of the files seem to be just the same files include, info, settings etc just seem to be like xml files.

Regards

Very odd; I just downloaded the zip file from the EmuMovies FTP, unzipped it, and tested the files, and they work fine for me. The story.txt is the story that I expect, and the video plays normally as well.
