Reipack

If you'd like to skip all of the steps required to make a rom work, then you can opt to use the Reipack. Details are inside the ZIP file linked below.

Atomiswave/Naomi Roms

Rom Formats

Mame roms (0.198 and above) are now supported after updating the core from binary or source. Direct loading of BIN/DAT files are supported and use the same BIOS selection as described above.

Place your .bin, .dat, or .zip files in:

/home/pigaming/RetroPie/roms/naomi for Naomi

And

/home/pigaming/RetroPie/roms/atomiswave for Atomiswave

If you prefer not to split your roms between Naomi and Atomiswave, either folder will work and launch the game without issue.

Error Codes

If you get an error code during boot, you will need to enter TEST mode. To do this, go to RetroArch RGUI then Options and enable Allow Naomi service buttons. You can enter TEST mode via L3 button and R3 to cycle thru menu items.

ERROR 02

Display: THIS GAME IS NOT ACCEPTABLE BY MAIN BOARD.

Resolution: The game isn't compatible with the USA BIOS, Select Japan as the Region in RetroArch RGUI Options.

Atomiswave/Naomi Compatibility List

The spreadsheet has been updated with BIN and Mame tabs. The BIN tab is outdated. The Mame tab has a list of roms to stay away from as they have issues.
