Universe BIOS Cannot Get to Menu ABC Doesn’t Work

Unread post by grendelw »

Not sure when this started because I just updated my mister after a few months away, but uni-bios no longer lets me get into the menu by holding abc, either holding each individual button or pressing the ABC macro. I've replaced the uni-bios in the roms folder with another copy and that didn't do anything.

I fixed it by deleting neo-epo.sp1 and reinstalling it

When you say you press ABC...are you pressing all three buttons at the same time or are you using the separate mapping for an ABC button?
I have found that pressing the "ABC" button works more often then pressing and holding down the A, B and C buttons.
I have the same issue on my MVS-4 were I have to time it just right with the key presses.

Hi

mostly i use the a b c at the same time. No macro....
I also deleted the neo-epo.sp1 file and reinstalled it.
If i start a game and get into it.... Than reboot the system
than i can get into the unibios. So maybe there is a bug
in the first boot sequence???

Cheers
