Pandora’s Box 6 – Setup and Compatibility List

This page is here to help newcomers know which Pandora’s Box 6 games they should disable (duplicates, non-functional, etc…) as well as compatibility lists for tested functional games for MAME, Final Burn Alpha and PlayStation.

If you find additional games that need to be added to the list, please feel free to leave a comment and I will do so as soon as possible.

Default Games to Disable

Here’s a list of all the games that should be disabled or replaced as well as the reason for disabling them. This list will also include games that have regional variants. For this purpose, we’re going to assume any version showing English should be okay and default to USA or World versions whenever possible.

This is also using the default numbering scheme as found in the game list editor when the Config button is pressed to keep things easy for everyone.

Added FBA ROMs

FBA ROMs need to be taken from the FBA 0.2.97.36 ROM set.

With regards to all the other consoles that FBA normally supports such as Megadrive, Colecovision and others, none of them work at all on the Pandora’s Box 6 despite being listed in the ROM list that comes with the PB6. Most likely, the support wasn’t included in the build of FBA running on it.
