For anyone still monitoring this thread, unless I missed it, what's the recommended way of organizing some of these multi-file CD-ROM games in their respective console ROM folders?? Is it advised to just keep every .cue, .bin, .iso etc file in one folder, and go into those folders/select the appropriate files to start the games?? Or do they just leave all the files in the general folder??
Main reason I ask is that I noticed that my Turbo-CD Lords of Thunder game has both a .CCD and .CUE file, and both files load the game (and I certainly don't want to delete one by accident thinking it's a duplicate, since I assume you'd need to keep both for the game to work).
My PS1 Castlevania Symphony of Night ROM on the other hand has 2 bin files and the .cue, with that last one being the only file that shows up in Emulation Station and loads the game.
Is it just all a matter of personal preference? Thanks.
Hi Mr the Fish. and everyone.. I'm the guy who gave stevethefish76 the retropie to start him on his fun geeking journey. He introduced me to the wonderful world of x68000 and I gotta say i am blown away. So I've started doing this also and did help Mr the Fish on this. I gave him a copy of my BIOS files and it seems to work for him. Been working with him trying to figure this stuff out. Some games load and some don't load. I'm not sure if its because of the type of rom used or its crc as I see there are multiple versions of things out there. Or if its the version of bios files that we're using. Again its a trial and test.
This is amongst the most trickiest emulation sets to get working at least on the Pi. Doing alot of google-FU and other things im surprised there isnt an all encompassing guide out there. There are bits and pieces which I assembled together to get this working which include multi-disk games.
the only thing i dont know is what exactly is Sharp X68000 Boot ROM (1987)(Sharp).bin that he referred to.
Sometimes the default directory systems directory isn't right.
Only if you move it, the RetroPie-Setup script will set it to /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS on install - hence all the docs referencing this folder.
This usually gets unset if you use Reset Configuration from RetroArch.
A Sega CD game? That would probably instantly explain why it isn't working. I knew I found it in a pile of other TG-16 roms so that's why I stuck it there but if it belongs in the Sega CD pile then I'll give that a whirl.
I'll keep picking at this one rom and emulator at a time.
Yes, I can see that I have to run most of the games I try at low settings. Not so worried about that, and the Dreamcast and Saturn emulators still have a ton of issues. However, I still want to try. Wish I could figure the exit issues out...... Kinda figured that would be the easy one....
