Manifest.bml error


If you encounter an error indicating missing manifest.bml files for any or all of the game platforms, you can try one of the following steps:


  • Copy the folders from /usr/share/higan to the /home/<user>/.local/share/higan directory. The folders contain the .bml files.




Note: The specified folders are the default for an openSUSE install.


  • In Higan, click Settings > Configuration > Advanced and select Ignore Manifests.




Notes for Higan on openSUSE 42.2 Gnome:


1. On the same hardware and Linux guest set up, the NES core on Mednafen rendered the test games better than Higan.

2. If game elements move slowly when using Higan, you can disable Video Emulation properties for Blurring or Scanlines.

Click Settings > Video Emulation to disable video properties.

If needed, disable Synchronize Video from the Settings menu.



2. Audio is muted by default on the openSUSE 42.2 install of Higan. Click Settings > Mute Audio to enable sound.

If there is still no audio while playing, change the audio driver from Settings > Configuration > Advanced. OpenSUSE 42.2 supports ALSA and PulseAudio, but the setting is affected by the Audio properties configured in VirtualBox.

3. You can save game state by clicking Tools > Save State, while the game is running.

4. If you aren't satisfied with Higan on openSUSE 42.2, other game emulators listed on software.opensuse.org include the following:

  • zsnes
  • uosnes
  • tuxnes
  • snes9x
  • infones
  • darcnes
  • nestopia
  • retroarch
  • mednafen
