Mupen64plus FZ Cannot Find Memory Pak
« on: November 29, 2017, 04:10:02 PM »
Hello.

I'm hoping someone might have some insight into an issue I've encountered recently when attempting to have N64 games utilize a Memory Pak. Until about a month ago, this was never a problem, then I updated to the most current version of FZ. I'm using an Odroid XU4, running Android.

I am having this issue using both WWF No Mercy & Virtual Pro Wrestling 2. Again, both games played fine Memory Paks before. In the settings, I have made sure I've selected a Memory Pak - so I'm not sure if that's the issue. Not sure if this is a new bug, or if there's something I can do on my end to fix things.

Thanks so much!

-Sean

Thanks for the report, this is probably a new bug.

Ok, mempak should be working on those games. Are they hacks by any chance? It could be that they are not in the database.

Yes, the Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 version I'm using is an English translation hack. And I'm just using a regular WWF No Mercy rom, not hacked - I had no issue loading Memory Paks for both games until recently.

Anything you might suggest that I could try on my end, or is this a bug you think might be handled in a future update?

Otherwise, I really appreciate all the work you guys do with this emulator - I hope I'm not coming across as ungrateful! Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Can you provide the CRC, md5, good name, and region of both games? I can add then to the database.

Interesting, that doesn't match anything in the database, I'll add it.

Hello :)

Same question...

Game - VirtuaPro Wrestling 2
Emulator version  - Mupen64plus AE(v3 alpha)
App version: 3.a.0(debug)
Version code: 37

( i know, i know...)

Issue  - save problem (located files)

So, when runing official japanes version emulator created path:
Компьютер\m2\Память телефона\mupen64plusae-v3-alpha\GameData\�ްl� ���ڽ 2 (J) 90002501777E3237739F5ED9B0E349E2\SramData, where sitated 2 save files - Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 - Oudou Keishou (J) [!].mpk  and Virtual Pro Wrestling 2 - Oudou Keishou (J) [!].sra.

But when run translated patched version, create path:
Компьютер\m2\Память телефона\mupen64plusae-v3-alpha\GameData\�ްl� ���ڽ 2 (J) 34A4FE395DA536A93C00E86D69FBEA10\SramData , but no saves files there. Sramdata IS JUST EMPTY FOLDER :-[ and not ability to transfer my own saves here from PC like in original japanes-non-hacked version.

But in real, some mystic savefile  is created ( where?), cause changes in game(translated version) that i do in options for example, or create a wrestler still remains in next game launch. And its lost when i just delete empty folder SramData.

So, i want to know where saves files from translated version are situated. And then replace them by my Pc-emulator saves.




P.s:  Yeah, I know- i know yje more modern version of emulator - Mupen64FZ now in googlplay. And its no has problem with saves ( its has .sra and .mpk files in SramData folder) in translated version.
  But its very slow on my device betveen AE version.
And i would like apply it to AE vesion.

Oh, GREAT....

solution was finded a couple posts upper

All what had to be done is took mupen64plus.INI from new version and place in AE version ( \Память телефона\Android\data\org.mupen64plusae.v3.alpha)  and save files has apper in folder!)
 - maybe it was helpful to sombody too


But recognize that INI -file  now location in modern version packaged in same .app file is TOO HARD  :o then Компьютер\m2\Память телефона\Android\data\org.mupen64plusae.v3.alpha - in AE vesion.... (WHY???)
