ePSXe trouble (and other quirks)
« on: August 16, 2019, 09:36:05 AM »
Hey guys,

I've been using RetroFe for some time, but never had luck with ePSXe. I just enjoy the visual quality more than reloaded in retroarch.

For some reason I can't get this working. Perhaps it's easier to copy and paste everything here so I can get some advice. The big thing is retroFE can't seem to find the executable and I'm totally confused. I know the path is correct.

(from my log)
[2019-08-16 01:22:42] [INFO] [Menu] Found: "C:\RetroFE original\collections\Sony Playstation\menu.txt"
[2019-08-16 01:22:43] [INFO] [RetroFE] Updating lastplayed playlist
[2019-08-16 01:22:43] [ERROR] [Launcher] Failed to find launcher executable (launcher: EPSXE executable: )

[2019-08-16 01:22:48] [DEBUG] [Page] Allocate graphics memory complete

(from settings)
list.path = collections\Sony Playstation\roms
list.includeMissingItems = false
list.extensions = iso,cue
list.menuSort = yes

launcher = ePSXe
#metadata.type = Sony Playstation

(launcher)
executable = C:\RetroFE original\emulators\ePSXe\ePSXe.exe
arguments = -loadbin "%ITEM_FILEPATH%" -nogui

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Can you attach the entire log.txt file? Perhaps there's a hint in there. You are certain C:\RetroFE original\emulators\ePSXe\ePSXe.exe exists I hope?

Thanks for the response. I attached the Espxe path as well. It looks correct to me, but a second set of eyes can always help.

Your launcher is set to epsxe, but your launcher file is called PS1.conf.

Thank you for clearing that up for me! It's incredible how one correction can fix it so fast.  Truth be told, I didn't have a great understanding of how the settings and launcher worked together. I'm planning on doing a series of Youtube tutorials as well so I'll make sure to emphasize things like these.
