Not all ROMs scanned - very few, actually
« on: August 11, 2018, 02:57:14 AM »
Hi there - I'm new to Mupen64 FZ and hear it's by far the best N64 emulator out there... but I'm running into an issue which I can't seem to resolve on my own.

I have a collection of ~730 ROMs in my microSD, and when I scan the folder (and subfolders) of the card, it goes through the motions of scanning, but only my folders 0 (zero) through G... nothing more - I can see it in the dialog box that shows - but ultimately only ends up showing me icons for ~12 games... and it's the same ones every time. I have my ROMs organized into folders 0-Z by name. Why might it not recognize H-Z?

Other N64 emulators scan and show all the games... just not Mupen64 FZ. What could be the problem? I'm honestly unsure... especially with two other N64 emulators finding [and running] the games without issue.

Open to any suggestions on how best to troubleshoot.

Which other emulators see the games ok? It's possible that the newest version of Mupen64plus FZ had a bug on the ROM scan code. Also, which format are your ROMs in?
