To quote, roughly translated: The emulator FBANext (based on the source code of the final burn) has just updated his PS3 version, and therefore passes in review R438.
Remember that these are interim releases, which may contain still lots of bugs.
As a reminder, this is a multi-console emulator, that is to say, he is able to emulate our beloved PS3 consoles following:
Sega System 16 (and similar systems), System 18, X-Board, Y-Board
Sega Megadrive (the savestates are not supported)
Place your roms in the folder: / dev_hdd0/game/FBAN00000/USRDIR/roms /
The first time you launch FBAnext, a file-fbanext ps3.xml will be generated. Ce fichier stock vos options. This file your stock options.
If you want to change the path of your roms, edit fbanext-ps3.xml.
.Zip/.7z/.rar Extensions are supported.
L2 + R1 + R2 Break / Back to menu
R3 Service Mode
L3 Current Reset Rom
FBANext PS3 R438:
Added macros input (x3 Punch/x3 Kick etc.)
FBANext PS3 R435:
Some minor performance improvements and reduced lag (CPS3/Sega System 16) other drivers may also show similar improvements.
Fixed bug when switching to widescreen on the game Street Fighter III: Second Impact
The navigation D-pad moves one position down / up as before.

What version of fbanext do you have? I think mine is version r492 & all metal slug games, so far, have been working just fine. Since these are neo-geo games, make sure you have the right neo-geobios.zip (1.3+ mb ver.) placed in the same folder as your metal slug games. Or you can download the newer retroarch 0.9.7 emulator since neo-geo games runs well on them too.
Thank you very much for the advice friend. Greatly appreciate it. Here's hoping that someone could provide me the link to where I can download the r492 version 'coz I can only find the r490. I'm sure there are also others like me w/ the same problem & would be very happy if they could also download the r492 version. Again, I say thank you.
This has to do with the a bug in the FBANext emulator. Most versions of it have problems if the roms folder located in the game/FBAN000000/something.xml (don't quite remember what it is right now off the top of my head, but the path should be right) isn't present, FBA will black screen. This happens from r439 on and gets fixed in r492 when they started using a text file instead of a xml file.
You can try to find a copy of r492 to fix the problem/make the path in the xml file or you can try the more up to date retroarch. Though I have a lot of problems loading FBANext/neogeo games on there without it hanging. All the other emulators are fine. Anyone else have this problem?
