OpenAI retro : Where to put the ROMs?


#1

Hey,

Trying to get started on OpenAI Retro, but whenever I launch a basic:

import retro
env = retro.make(game='SonicTheHedgehog-Genesis') 

I get an error saying that the game wasn’t found. I then downloaded a ROM but I have no idea where to put it, and I can’t find this information in the report. I tried by specifying a path, but to no avail ?

Thanks !

You have scripts to import the ROMs explained here (https://contest.openai.com/details) but I suggest you register in the chat of the contest (https://discord.gg/fyaaXc), many others are asking similar things and the people behind the contest are helping.

Actually, if you locate where retro repo was cloned in your system, there will be a data folder inside with sub-folder for each game, the ROM files go inside those game folders overwriting whatever there is inside (I hand-copied them and they worked fine), the scripts just do it for you.
