Another question: what file system did you use on your USB drive?

I also made a mistake: X68000 must be in /media/fat/bootrom.

sub directories for other cores on the SD card. I figured the issue lies in the hard drive or file structure... I moved files to the SD card and it seems to be working albeit intermittently, but I think that has to do more with the fact that I'm pretty new at running this core.

Awesome core when it works right.

With multi disk games, are do you load both the disk images at the same time? Ioaded dracula in both disk drives and that seemed to be the only think that got it working...

Yes, if the game comes with 2 floppies, you pretty much always run it by putting floppy 1 in drive 1 and floppy 2 in drive 2. If the game comes with 3 or more floppies, it's harder to tell. It could be that it has two floppies for playing and a third floppy for saving progress. Or it might not run at all unless you install it to the harddrive. It depends on the game.

@ Murderface1982
You did not say what FS you used on the USB drive. If it is NTFS note that it is case sensitive and X68000 must be with a capital X.

I can't remember I'll check when I get home... My file system works for every other console and I made sure the uppercase lowercase matched on both... Games might not matchup or something though, but then I would assume my other cores wouldn't be able to locate files either.

It's the weirdest fucking thing... I'm intermittently getting Directory not found now. It works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. I have no idea what the hell is causing this...

Power supply problem?
Apparently X68000 is/was the only games subdirectory you have/had on your USB drive. The case sensitivity is only for USB drives formatted NTFS so it does not affect what is on your SD card.
Is the USB drive a new addition to your setup?
Did your run anything else from your USB drive?
How many Amps can your power supply deliver?
Now that you moved X68000 to your SD card did you disconnect your USB drive?
If not disconnect it and see if it works. If it does it means that your power supply does not deliver enough Amps.

I can think of a couple things that might cause this behavior:

1) Insufficient power supply causing the drive to be unreliable.

2) Two file systems covering the same portion of the drive. I've seen this before, but I don't know exactly how it got into that state. Basically, I had a Linux system that prioritized mounting /dev/sdb, while plugging the same disk into Windows would prioritize the equivalent of /dev/sdb1 (or maybe it was the other way around). Both appeared to be valid file systems, but their contents didn't match and attempting to access certain files would cause strange failures because related structures had been overwritten by the other system.

Hilarious, unplugged my hard drive and now I am good to go. So weird.

I have 2 recommendations for you:

1. When you ask for help people trying to help will ask you questions, answering them will make things a lot easier and faster to solve your problems.
2. If you want to use a USB drive ditch the power supply which came with the DE10-Nano and get a beefy one.

That said I am done with this problem.

Me too. Unfortunately nobody has responded. Very strange.
I posted this question on the discord server and was told that the core currently only runs properly at 800x600 resolution because the core has not had the standard scalar framework linked in yet. Haven't tried that yet, but you might want to see if that fixes the issue.
Used the latest beta from discord. All fine now.
Have you got a link and version that fixes this, pls?

There are issues with MIDI, I believe Kitrinx said there are some unimplemented interrupts.

Some games work with it, others will just hang

is there a patreon to support for x68000? I'm confused as to who is actively working on it right now.

Kitrinx? Puu?

There are a couple of forks that seem to be active. My preferred fork is Kitrinx’s.
