    Hi all - I dont suppose you have had any more thoughts on this have you? Thanks alot
  2. you are so super duper! thanks mate legend.. I saw that before but disregarded it because it read as thought it wanted just ONE default bezel for ALL roms... worked a treat thanks
  3. hi all - so for about 90% of my Mame roms i have 4:3 bezels fine.. however there are some which just leave an ugly black bordered screen. Is it possible for roms that have no bezel to use a default bezel? Same question for Daphne please which currently i have no bezels at all for. thanks guys

    Ok - so... - Went into ..Config/Genesis_Plus_GX/ and moved the Sonic CD cfg file out of there. I did notice that there were over 1500 other CFG files in there too (must be Megadrive, game gear etc too) - Loaded bigbox > opened Sonic CD > opened retro arch > Changed to Auto > saved core override (in the overrides menu) > Restart..... When i press restart it doesnt actually restart, just goes back to bigbox... So i reloaded Sonic and same problem - Checked and its reverted back to Pal and not saved... I am assuming amongst those 1500 CFG files there is ano

    hey neil - great so i did that and it worked!.... so before i take the plunge and update RA on my main drive i took a look and noticed what perhaps seems to be an obvious error... see here i am trying to load Sonic CD (USA) yet my region is not set to "Auto" like on the test build i just did, but "Pal"?/.... See picture ... is THIS the problem?!.... if so, i set it back to "auto" but it never seems to save and always end up back at "Pal".. if this is the problem, how do i keep it saying "Auto"?

    no i havent - as yet... a little too scared to do so!... its a case of, what is worse - not having Sega CD, or all the work ive put into Retroarch being lost.... This not having Sega CD is the better of the worst cases haha

    Hi Sundogak - Ok so, this screen shot shows all the CRC32 for all 3 bios;..... I have copy pasted from your master database you posted above and seems like "J" is different, but the other two are correct.... ?? Is my J bios bad?.... why then do no games work if 2 of the other bios' are fine? perhaps they are all Jap games? comment "Sega - Mega CD - Sega CD"" rom ( name bios_CD_E.bin size 131072 crc 529ac15a md5 e66fa1dc5820d254611fdcdba0662372 sha1 f891e0ea651e2232af0c5c4cb46a0cae2ee8f356 ) rom ( name bios_CD_J.bin size 131072 crc 9d2da8f2 md5 278a9397d192149e84e820ac621a8edd sha1 4846f4

    Just off a quick search can see some entirely different named Sega CD Bios's exist.. For Eg "us_scd1_9210.bin" - perhaps if i popped these in my system folder they may work.. There is a US, JAP, and EU version EDIT: Ah these seem to be for the picodrive core i believe

    Neil : Thanks, so if i update retroarch will all settings remain the same?.. i dont really like Retroarch and its been a real walk through treakle getting it the way i want it and i would just not want to risk messing any of that up.. however if i can update RA and the core without any worry then ill give that a whirl mate..... Also you asked if it lists CHDs as a supported format, if i go back to that screen i was on and scroll down are you saying it will tell me? Fromlostdays : You think its the bios do you?. So apart from region bios's there are different versions of each one?. ...

    Hey Neil - So i am using Retroarch, and the Genesis Plus GX core (i believe). When i launch Retroarch outside of bigbox the same thing happens.. Just loads the Music player intro thing.

    hi Guys - Any Sega CD experts in here?. I load a game and it seems to be an old school CD / jukebox loader screen instead of loading the game. Few things if it helps, I have 3x Bios files in the System directory, and the Games are in the form of CHD's Any input would really be appreciated thank you David
  19. Hey guys. So i want to use one coin button on my cabinet. However there are a few games that rely on 2 coin chutes and therefore need 2 coin buttons right?. My plan is to, for all these games add coin 2 and coin 1 to the same key. So even tho itll add 2 coins for every 1 press of coin it sort of gets around the issue. Any one have any idea where i can get a list of these games? Cant be many eh Cheers
  20. Hi Guys, Whilst setting up Commodore and Amstrad i am having a hard time with mapping my xbox pad to make the onscreen virtual keyboard appear so i can select various options. I have been into the control settings within Retroarch just after loading a game, and i cant remember the exact place but it says something like "Toggle onscreen keyboard". I change this to a shoulder button but it doesnt do anything. Secondly, I have exit emulator set to Start and Select on the pad and I have noticed when i exit a game the onscreen keyboard does appear very briefly for a fraction of a s
  21. thanks guys - Thought about deleting all multidisc games on my arcade but then i remembered that i have MS-DOS and Amiga on there... damn it... must find a way some how.. I have 2x Xbox pads hanging off my machine, can "Open/close cd drawer" be operated with a combination of buttons from a pad? something obscure like Right+start? Seems like its going to be a right ball ache this
  22. I am using Retroarch and the 4do core. I havent so far come accross a situation where i need to swap disc. Is it fairly straight forward once i need to?
  23. Hey Sundog - you are fantastic, simple editing the CUE files was the problem. Perfect thanks!. Finally, for multidisc games, Wing commander for example. It has 4 discs, and I don't want to see 4 entries. I have combined them into 1, would that work fine? Will it auto disc swap when needed?
  24. Hi guys - So, working through the beloved 3DO. I have many games working, however there are quite a few that load the same weird chinese love game. I cant even tell what the game is, but it is the same game each time. I took a look in the roms folder and noticed every game which loaded this odd chinese game were games with no IMG file. Only their CUE file... This makes sense. So i went ahead and downloaded all the missing IMG files, added them to the roms folder but still, when i click the game this damn chinese game loads again..... I assumed that there must be an incorrect rom path
  25. Ah smashing - Didnt realise that. Very new to Retroarch and from what i briefly saw thought you need to tell it to either look for a pad OR keyboard and not use both. Thanks great
