I wish I did just have a problem finding roms, I been up all night trying to install this. I am on 3.55 waninkokos V2 CFW. I have downloaded like 6 or 7 different versions, 2 have installed and then error when I try to load, the others won't install at all. I only see geohots CFW everywhere I look, did I mess up going from 3.41 OFW straight to 3.55 CFW?

Please add a default path to USB:/FBAROMS or something, it's just one extra line in the .xml and it'll save a lot of people screwing around with ftp's and pc's.

Nope, nothing got changed on that front (depends what previous version you were working with, though).

The only thing I can think of that might have happened is that the XML config file got overwritten when updating. You might need to set up the ROM paths again with a text editor.

BTW - this is a huge pain in the collective you-know-what - I'm going to try hacking a 'Set ROM path feature' into FBA and have FBA save it.

Same here, my CPS3 roms were all working on an earlier version. Now 3rd strike and JoJo are missing files I guess... I guess the roms got updated. Can anyone confirm?

can't seem to find a Street Fighter 3rd Strike rom that works for me. Anybody care to share?

ps: is it normal for the emulator to work without using the dongle (on 3.41)?

FBANext PS3 - Custom build 2v2 - r422 (FW 1.92+/FW 3.15/FW 3.41/Geohot CFW 3.55)

CHANGED since 442:
- 1.92 PKG should work now.
- Turned on triple buffering - led to a helpful speed increase. Especially noticeable in Street Fighter 3rd Strike

I just noticed that the PARAM.SFO was made in such a way that the minimum required firmware was 3.40.

Therefore, here is a short interim release - r422 - all of my patches have become part of the official version (post-417).

FBANext - PS3 - r422 (FW 1.92+/FW 3.15/FW 3.41/CFW 3.55)

I want to implement some more stuff - but that will have to wait until later.
