NES Classic grey screen

Post by LordlierTwo5730 » Tue Jan 01, 2019 5:18 pm

Hi! I hacked my NES Classic Mini with Hakchi CE v3.5 and installed RetroArch with a lot of cores. Everything is alright, but I can't play in NESMaker games. For example, I've downloaded "The Tower of Tormoil", and it just doesn't want to work! I've put FCEumm as an emulation core and still all I get is the grey screen. I chose this game on my NES Classic Mini and it shows me a grey screen. Help me, please!

Try using the "iNES header checker" to set the rom to mapper 2.

don't change anything - you need to install the Retroarch module to make it work - it needs the the lastest to work - those are just "cores" of retroarch.

Dear future readers:

At this point we don't know if Retroarch does or will provide proper mapper 30 support. In the meantime you can make your NESMaker game compatible by using the iNES Header Tool as previously mentioned. You can find the utility at the link below:

the FCEUX Core works just fine for mapper 30 I use it on my hacked nes mini - retroarch is needed to run these cores

Hi I'm interested in this too, not sure how to swap the header with lines. And i installed all the retro arch cores found one that ses nes utopia or somthing and another one but cant figure out how to force the console to load through it. Il play a bit more, hope it works. if i get something that works might make a tutorial.
Ye using "iNES header checker" worked. :)
