Games not starting on fightcade

The client itself is working, but whenever I’m challenged or challenge someone it doesn’t launch the emulator. If I try /play it says launching whatever game I’m trying to play, but it never actually does.

The Roms run on fba, I helped my buddy get fightcade set up on his pc with the same files and it works as intended (he’s on xp, I’m on 10, so I’m hoping it doesn’t have something to with that), I’ve opened ports 6000-6009, I’ve reinstalled, turned off my firewall and antivirus, tried running as administrator, and nothing.

Any ideas?
