Surreal64 Problems, Please Help a Noob Out.

Recommended Posts

So I have finally gotten a grasp of everything but the N64 emulator.  I downloaded EWJ ROM pack, copied over the surreal64 folder into the emulators/n64 folder, copied some ROMs over in the roms/n64 folder.  It scans and actually shows my files scanned but always comes up with a script error saying it cannot make a list.  What am I doing wrong exactly?  I've read how frustrated rocky5 is over people asking about this same issue but I followed his instructions as he laid them out on a Reddit thread.  I'm stumped.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Just download the emulator from the downloader. It’s the latest version and it works. (Tested it with a good few games)

Your roms can stay where they are. Just scan in N64 now. 

 

Alternatively send me the log file from the system folder after getting the error and I can tell you exactly why it’s failing. (Did you copy the media folder that’s inside the surreal folder over as it’s needed for the artwork and synopsis info)

I just downloaded the emulator from the downloader.  I copied over the media file, but maybe this is where I am confused?  The media folder is within the n64 emulator folder.  Do I need to move that folder somewhere else?

 

Here is the log error.

Only thing you copy over is roms, if you download the emulators form the downloader it’s all setup ready for roms.

".emustation\roms\n64\"

I've done that but I'm still getting the error above.

I have this problem too. Could it be some bad rom-package Ive gotten my hands on? 

When Im autoscanning I can se the N64 in the "startmenu" of emustation but it says "0 Games". When I start the emulator from the fileexplorer it works though.. ?

i dont know what i do wrong

I downloaded the latest surreal64 emulator. I FTP'd the extracted folder directly to the emustation/emulator/n64 onto the xbox + roms on the emustation/roms/n64. i did the same for sega genesis and snes. it works fine but why is it not working for N64?? I always get the message "Surreal.ini is corrupt or not formatted correctly. PLease recopy/download Earthworms Jim ..."  

 

what do i do wrong where is the issue??

Hi, 
I am facing similar issue with Surreal64 and XMBC Emustation. When trying to update N64 in Emustation I receive message "Error script failed! : create_rom_lists.py". 

  • I have XBMC Emustation version 1.2.123
  • I downloaded Surreal64 using the Emustation Downloader. 
  • I FTP'd two roms in zip format to emustation\roms\n64\
  • I can launch Surreal64 using the File Explorer and choosing Surreal64 emulator folder and default.xbe. I see both of those two game roms and can play both. 

What check my setup is failing and how could I get N64 updated to Emustation? :)

As far as I know, you should use Earthworm James Rom Pack. But I have uploaded my own romset and ran into the same problem. To generate the list with the script you have to modify it a little.

Open create_rom_lists.py and insert a new line at position 911 before "pDialog.update(..." :

Now at least the script runs thru and generates the gamelist with your romnames from the filenames.

Hasta donde yo sé, deberías usar Earthworm James Rom Pack. Pero he subido mi propio romset y me encontré con el mismo problema. Para generar la lista con el script, debe modificarlo un poco.

Abra create_rom_lists.py e inserte una nueva línea en la posición 911 antes de "pDialog.update (...":

Ahora al menos el script se ejecuta y genera la lista de juegos con sus nombres de rom a partir de los nombres de archivo.

Gracias gracias mister

I have the 212 pack installed on my computer thats 5.8gb. Do I just FTP that over like a regular emulator even though I already have Surreal 64?

Seems the 212 pack already has the roms on it, do I just transfer over that 212 pack to the emulator folder even though I have surreal?

Yep, delete your old Surreal, kill the game save, then transfer the entire lot over. If you leave out the preview videos, it will take about half the time.

Okay. so just delete everything sureal and transfer the whole 5.gb EWJ file over? I just don't want to mess this up. Thanks

I have a different issue. I have installed the Earthworm James 212 version of Surreal and FTPd over a number of roms. Using Emustation I am able to properly update the carousel and generate the rom list. However, upon running ANY rom it just black screen's and I have to restart the XBox. I have read from some this is a problem with the bios on the XBox being too old. I have a 1.0 XBox with 4034 kernel, but the latest version of Dash I believe. How can I fix this issue? I cannot find a way to update the bios itself without soldering pins in the XBox. I would think if this was a common issue there would be a disclaimer about it that is just doesn't work with old kernels. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello everybody.
Sorry for my English.
Fantastic Rocky5 work, original reborn xbox, I love it.
I loaded the roms with boxart and video, I updated the system and loaded Artworch.
I still have 2 problems:
1) Rom N64 from the list error, first I solved by modifying "create_rom_lists.py" as indicated in a post in the forum, then I updated to the latest version of EMUSTATION and I can no longer find the folder to replace "create_rom_lists. py "? Can you tell me where it is?
2) ROM information is not displayed, I checked in the folder E: / Players / XBMC / emustation / synopsis /.../ are there but they do not load them; while videos and boxart are displayed.
Thanks again for the help.

      I just got a 1.0 Xbox with an Xcecuter 2.6 chip installed. It's running Evox M8+ and I would like to switch to the bigger X2 5035.67. what is the best way to do this? Also, is there a way to determine what is on the other bank of the chip? I get an error code when I try to boot with the other bank. Can anyone give me any advice?
