After years of messing around with other emulators, I've decided to bask in arcade emulation. However, whenever I even attempt to load the application, I receive a Guru Meditation with the error code: #c0000005 . 6D902060
The game I have in the rom folder, for now, is Vs. Castlevania, since it should be a simple game to play. Is there any way to fix this?

I found a couple Reddit threads showing a similar error message - all of them seem to involve a corrupted or out-of-date ROM version. In particular, there's this from the Fightcade FAQ (Fightcade is built on top of FBA):
If you have MAME, try loading your Vs. Castlevania ROM in there and see if you also get an error message. If you do, you probably have a corrupted ROM and will need to download a fresh copy.
^ Why I don't have any submissions despite being on the forums for years now...
I tried MAME before I settled on FBA, and although I downloaded the alpha version, for some reason, I couldn't find the actual application anywhere. So I tried the beta version, and Vs. Castlevania was running perfectly fine. I opted out of it though because it was not only hard to figure out how to record a movie in the first place, but whenever I changed the buttons for the hotkeys, everytime I reopened MAME, it would reset to its original settings.
In other words, I'm pretty sure that my game isn't the problem. I'm fairly certain that you use a zip folder to load the game.
Hello Captain Forehead,
I am guessing you are using FBA-RR v 007 and are likely on Windows 10?
There are a few options I think!
1) Use 005 if you don't need breakpoints (not sure if thats the only feature 007 adds, apologies if there is something else)
2) Right click fba's exe and make sure you use compatibility mode and disable full screen optimization. For me this seems to work consistently. Trying to see if this fixes the issue for others.
3) I have had success with deleting the config folder and having no roms in the folder then running the exe. You have to do this many times before you don't get the meditation error but eventually it works for me. After it works once, it seems to work going forward.
I hope one of these suggestions helps! Personally I'm going to start moving my scripts over to MAMEHawk, but I help out on a few other projects using FBA-RR that I don't have the time to move over.
