How to play ATARI 5200, COLECOVISION and INTELLIVISION?
#1
Exclamation 
I am not able to play these three systems, when I enter the emulator it goes back to the initial screen or enters "black screen", someone knows how to play these three systems? (a step-by-step, please)  Undecided

Atari 5200
Colecovision
Intellivision

they all require BIOS to work, refer to RetroPie wiki for the correct syntax
also, as we use X11 to run them, roms with spaces in filenames might not run correctly.

Edit: coleco should run with the bluemsx core, check if its default after launching the rom

1- I downloaded the bios and it did not work (I delayed to find), could I post a link of the bios (atari5200, colecovision and intellivision) that you use? please

2- My test was with a game with a name (has no space) and did not work ..

no bios links are allowed here at the forums. Retropie wiki:

Atari5200: https://github.com/retropie/retropie-set...0-and-5200
Coleco: https://github.com/retropie/retropie-set...lecovision
Intellivision: https://github.com/retropie/retropie-set...ellivision

copy bios to ~/RetroPie/BIOS folder, then test again

select RetroPie - Runcommand Log, should pop up a few messages, scroll down to check errors

COLECO will probably need more tweaks for better compatibility. Since it shares libretro core with MSX (BlueMSX), copy bios coleco.rom to ~/RetroPie/BIOS/Machines/COL - Colecovision/ and follow the steps below:

After running a game, change default core to lr-bluemsx
press Select + X to go into Retroarch Menu, then Quick Menu - Options
Change Machine to COL - Colecovision
   

Now go to Controls sections and change User 1 device to Retropad (maybe you'll have to change this option again)

Stay in the Quick Menu and select Save Core Overrides
   

Quit to EmulationStation and select the game again

Now you'll see the Colecovision welcome screen

Press Select + X again, leave Quick Menu, select Load Content from main menu, then Start Directory
   

Choose game, now it should play fine
