Nvidia Shield - NAS for ROMS storage - need help with rompath=

Recommended Posts

Hello -  

I am working on my Nvidia Shield, and I am using a very cool, preconfigured version of Hyperspin that I found on Youtube 

I have the roms running in retroarch, but I when attempting to launch in HS, I receive an ''attempting to launch missing rom'..  

I have been attempting to set the rompath in Hyperspin, but I'm a bit confused as to where this should go? Should I update the settings in the "SETTINGS" or the "SETTINGS_ANDROID" folder?  I'm thinking the SETTINGS_ANDROID, but just want to make sure.  


My NAS is named DISKSTATION, and I created a shared folder called 'Emu', and Hyperspin directory lives there.


Here is the path to my roms on my NAS:



I've attempted to update the ANDROID.ini to rompath=/storage/DISKSTATION/Emu/Hyperspin/Roms




I've also attempted to update the SNES INI to /storage/DISKSTATION/Emu/Hyperspin/Roms/Super Nintendo Entertainment System/roms/




No dice. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

That should be correct. (The image you uploaded cuts off the last folder /roms??)

The rompath works in conjunction with the file extensions.

Make sure you have the extention of you game files added also.
