This set really needs to happen. I mean, the Retroarch logo is literally the Space Invaders alien. :P

Is anyone getting sound when playing on FinalBurn Neo?
Mamba219 30 Mar 2023 21:54
For those having sound issues, I've found a fix. Google "Space Invaders Samples" and go to the first link. Then download the invaders.zip file from there.

Now go into the folder where your Retroarch is saved. Go to system -> fbneo and create a folder called "samples". Place the .zip file inside this folder.

When you load up Space Invaders again, this issue should be fixed. The same problem exists on FinalBurn Neo for Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Junior and this is how I fixed it.

How the hell is it possible to clear a wave in less than 70 seconds?
Rej72380 31 Mar 2023 01:50
Mamba219 can you give more specific instructions to where the sample is to be put in? I don't have a FBN folder under System.
Mamba219 31 Mar 2023 02:28
You might need to create the "fbneo" folder as well
Rej72380 31 Mar 2023 06:30
Thanks for the assist, Mamba219. I got sound now on the game.

The very beginning of the gaming era got very good appreciation by the one who worth it by making this set. Good job, xnaivx!
ssolle 16 Nov 2023 02:13
a very good and thorough set, although i don't think i quite have the skills to master it. getting sub 1 minute board completion was a fun challenge though, i think that should be an achievement

Mastered! Pretty tough game but quite fun. Another one where I had to look up for tips but was pretty satisfying to learn.
