INLretro Dumper-Programmer exits to command line

Post by newbie2 » Sun Nov 04, 2018 7:59 am

Anyone purchase the INLretro Dumper-Programmer (http://www.infiniteneslives.com/inlretro.php) and have luck getting passed to the main lua script as described in the readme? When I run inlretro.exe -s scripts\inlretro.lua from the host folder the program runs but always exits to the command line (regardless of the nes mapper selected) instead of control passing to the main lua script

A first step would be to naturally create a support ticket on his website. Nobody can help you better than the man himself.

True, but I think its worth seeing if anyone elee has gotten it to work and replicating (after all, maybe the device is working fine and I’m doing something wrong).

Can you post the output you get when running the command line ?

I do not know what "using INL MMC1 board" refers to. Just to clarify, my post was about reading from a cartridge (rather than writing to one). That said, are you referring to something in the inlretro.lua file that needs to be edited? Or are you referring to something else?

In the inlretro.lua file, you should have lines with

Code: Select all

curcart.process(........
All commented out except one.
Comment it, and add this :

Code: Select all

curcart.process( true, true, false, false, false, "tmnt-dump.bin", "", "")

Exactly the tip I needed, thanks greatly.
