    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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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?
  14. 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?
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. Ah ok, hmm thats a shame, seems like some work. Its just nice when someone who doesnt really know wants to play an n64 game etc it just reminds them to pick up the pad etc Hmm so i dont need different controls really, just wondering if a pad AND an ipac can be used at the same time, either / or. So lets say i start up Streets of Rage on Megadrive. I use the joystick on the arcade control panel to move axel around the screen, then i decide that i want to grab the pad, would i still be able to control axel with the D-Pad/analgue stick of the pad? Or will i have to come out, go into into ret
  18. Hi Guys - 2 things - i am building a machine whereby for platforms that require thumb sticks i will use a 360 pad thats hanging off the machine instead of the arcade control panel. Is it possible, when selecting say PS2 for a flash screen to appear using an image i make to say "please pick up the controller" or something along those lines?.... Secondly, is it possible in retroarch for both my ipac (arcade control panel) AND a plugged in xbox pad to both control the games?... Obviously arcades should be played using the control panel but if i loaded megadrive and just happen to want to us
  19. OK great thanks Wally / Harry.
  20. Ok thanks Harry. Do TAP files literally take the same time to load though as the olden days?. i can see that becoming frustrating after the novelty has worn off. Also, i have a huge batch of ROMs, all in these different folder formats. there are so many roms i am trying to cut them down. I have deleted all (B), and (A1/2/3/4..) but there are still about 6000. there seem to be many duplicates still but is there an automated solution anywhere other than grinding through it?
  21. hi Guys - Working with adding the ZX Spectrum to launchbox however am wondering what are peoples preffered ROM type? - TAP seems nice as it is exactly like the original tapes including loading screens however they do have their downsides. Z80 seems more robust and a clean snapshot however you lose the loading screen. TZX seems interesting however, and seems a mix of the two. What are your experiences and is there a clear winner? Many thanks
  22. OK thanks for your guidance guys.. Have sorted it.. I renamed the megadrive logo "Sega Megadrive.png" but at first, despite refreshing image cache in bigbox it still showed as Genesis?!?!.. (please see picture clearly showing the files). it kept wanting to choose a genesis theme. So I deleted everything but the "Sega Megadrive.png" and it finally showed up in the wheel correctly.
  23. Ok just checked. so under the clear logo folder, my logic is that it was reading the "Sega genesis.png" file and putting that as the wheel image. So i assumed if i inserted a megadrive logo and named it as "sega genesis.png" it should in theory show the megadrive logo. Ill rename it now see what happens.
  24. Scooter: thank you, im quite confident ive tried that (including refreshing bigbox). But theres obviously something im missing so thanks for confirming the right area. Neil: thanks. I think this could be the problem. Its tricky because ive found that once i change the platform name from genesis to megadrive in launchbox it made a brand new folder structure for it and needed a bit of tinkering with (which i feel is almost done). I found the "genesis" logo and replaced it with a megadrive logo picture but kept it called "sega genesis.png" thinking it would show the megadrive icon even thou
