117w ago - As a follow-up to his recent SNES9x update that included an HD version with shaders, squarepusher2 has also updated the FBANext r423 Custom v2 PS3 Emulator which now includes a Custom HD Mode as well.
Core - updated fm.c fmopl.c with to match latest mame.
PS3 - added triple buffer option (check options to toggle). Triple buffering
will be stored in xml
A much faster graphics driver - try CPS3 and CPS2 games and feel and see the difference in terms of speed. Most of the input lag noticed by experienced arcade players should be mostly gone now.
Triple-buffering is hardforced to be enabled by default - together with the new graphics driver makes the framerate very fast.
Sysutil OSD is used for some parts of the In-Game menu, such as saving a savestate, saving a button preset, or generating a clrmame.dat file, and so on.
Changelog for Custom r423:
New input code
HD shaders – as with SNES9x PS3, 4xSoft-HD looks the best
Included is a diff patch intended for Lantus – so these changes can be carried over into mainline FBA.

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?
