Can't Play JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

Postby cyberman1011 on Sun Jan 20, 2013 7:15 pm

So according to the GGPO FAQ I read, one of the games it said that GGPO supported was:

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Heritage for the Future (Euro, 990913, NO CD)

If I'm not mistaken, the game file that I have to download should be called "jojobane.zip", as that is what GGPO says I need to put into my ROMS folder in order to join the game room for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

After I downloaded it and put it in my ROMS folder, I got this error message:

"jojobane.zip was found (roms/jojobane.zip).
jojoba.zip was not found.

~essential program ROM 10 was not found.
~essential program ROM 20 was not found.
~graphics ROM 30 was not found.
~graphics ROM 31 was not found.
~graphics ROM 40 was not found.
~graphics ROM 41 was not found.
~graphics ROM 50 was not found.
~graphics ROM 51 was not found.

The ROMset exhibits the following problems:
~essential data is missing, the game will not run!
~program data is missing.
~graphics data is missing."


This would show up whenever I tried to challenge someone or spectate someone. I downloaded "jojoba.zip" afterwords, put it in the same ROMS folder that "jojobane.zip" was in (I left them as .zip files, I didn't extract whatever was in it), and when I try to challenge someone and/or spectate, I get the same error message I got last time, only this time it told me that "jojoba.zip" WAS found:

"jojobane.zip was found (roms/jojobane.zip).
jojoba.zip was found (roms/jojoba.zip).

~essential program ROM 10 was not found.
~essential program ROM 20 was not found.
~graphics ROM 30 was not found.
~graphics ROM 31 was not found.
~graphics ROM 40 was not found.
~graphics ROM 41 was not found.
~graphics ROM 50 was not found.
~graphics ROM 51 was not found.

The ROMset exhibits the following problems:
~essential data is missing, the game will not run!
~program data is missing.
~graphics data is missing."


...There's something else which confuses me EVEN MORE.

The emulator that GGPO uses is called FinalBurn Alpha. I downloaded a seperate version of the emulator, and the roms work perfectly fine from there!

Can somebody kindly help me with this? I'm new to GGPO and I don't know what to do at all :(

Romsets change for various reasons. GGPO's FBA version is almost five years old.

5 years old you say? Sweet Jesus :shock:

Is there any way I can fix this though? Or do I have to get an updated version of GGPO?

The fix would be to use the right romset.
