PC Engine CD
It is important that the image file (usually
.bin) and the CUE file (
CUE files are just text files containing a description of the CD. If you have files named like:
Akumajou Dracula X.bin Akumajou Dracula X.cue
then ensure the first line of the CUE file contains:
FILE "Akumajou Dracula X.bin" BINARY
Any of the following are wrong and will not work:
### extension has incorrect case FILE "Akumajou Dracula X.BIN" BINARY ### file name has incorrect case FILE "AKUMAJOU DRACULA X.bin" BINARY ### does not match the actual file name FILE "Akumajou_Dracula_X_-_Chi_no_Rinne_(NTSC-J)_[KMCD3005].bin" BINARY
Switching Emulation Station to the TurboGrafx-16 logo:
If you are from the United States it is likely that you had the TurboGrafx-16 rather than the PC Engine. If you want EmulationStation to show the TurboGrafx-16 graphics instead of PC Engine then you should create a file /opt/retropie/configs/all/platforms.cfg with the following contents (note this requires at least v4.1.6 of the RetroPie-Setup script).
Once this is done, please update any of the currently installed PC Engine emulators from RetroPie-Setup and Emulation Station will now use the TurboGrafx-16 logo.
