About Me

  1. Info: ROMs: - Dreamcast: Folder with subfolders containing the GDI/BIN/RAW, also tried to CHD the folders - DS: Folder with ZIP Software: - LB Version 1.1 - Android 9 running on a RP2+ Issue: Launchbox > Import Games Selecting Folder for Dreamcast ROMs Selecting Sega Dreamcast as a Platform Enabled Combine ROMs Enabled Import from subfolders Tried with and without enabling to use Folder Names Clicking to proceed with import The importer now finds 1028 files, it should be the Metacritic Top 100 for the DC and imports them as such. The playlist afterwards has 1028 entries, each individual file. If I do the same thing with a CHD, it just adds the CHD, does not scrape the name, content or anyhting. For the DS the exact same thing happens. It just adds the ZIP without scraping. I've added 14 other systems, they all worked flawlessly, so I have to assume something's very wrong with Sega DC and Nintendo DS scraping. My filenames should be more than fine.
  2. So I have caught the widescreen bug for games that were made before the widescreen revolution. This is mostly 3D games of the 5th and 6th Console Generation. Whilst there are quite a few games that have native widescreen support there are hacks and cheats to unlock the aspect ratio to display a true Anamorphic 16:9 Widescreen image. NO IN GAME STRETCHING HERE. What is True Anamorphic 16:9? - When you set a 4:3 game to run 16:9 and that title doesn't support it, the image will be stretched. True Anamorphic is adjusted for the 16:9 space so everything is rendered and displayed with no stretching. There are 3 ways to achieve this below. Native Widescreen? - Some games actually have widescreen support from the older generations. I was surprised to discover Goldeneye has native widescreen support, which would have made 4 player deathmatching wayyyyy better. Cheat Codes? - For games that have no Widescreen support there are some coding geniuses out there that have made easily implementable cheat codes to achieve Anamorphic 16:9. A small number of games need directly patching however most use cheat codes. These are made on a per game basis and yield far better results than Emulator Hacks. Emulator Hacks? Most emulators and cores now have a "Widescreen Hack" option. This option only works on a handful of games and is generally not the way to go as pop-in is really obvious outside the 4:3 space. PLEASE UNDERSTAND EMULATOR HACKS ARE NOT CHEAT CODES. THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE. POP-IN Pop-in is the enemy of getting games to run in 16:9. Because games were made to display in 4:3, anything that is displayed outside of that space will pop-in and out unless something is done to manipulate the code to render everything in the 16:9 space. This is due to devs simply not needing to use recourses on displaying anything outside 4:3 in those days. As I mentioned above, emulator hacks have terrible pop-in outside the 4:3 space. This is why cheat codes are the way to go if a game doesn't have native widescreen support. Cheat codes generally just work....... but not always. UI, HUD, FMV & Menu Stretching When using any widescreen solution there is more often than not, some 2D elements that will be stretched or not adjusted to display in the 16:9 space e.g speed dials in racers. Even native widescreen games have 2D asset stretching as the devs didn't adjust any or some of these elements. There are some examples where this doesn't happen, mostly with cheat codes as the coding genius behind it figured out how to resize or move UI elements. Sometimes selection cursors wont line up with what you are selecting as a result of the clashing 4:3 2D assets and adjusted 16:9 assets. FMV is generally stretched also, but not always. These are really small issues and not deal breakers. Just a small price to pay for glorious in game 16:9. Regional Differences / 60Hz Some titles for PAL/JP regions are easier/better to make codes/patches for over their USA counterparts. I had to change up my set to accommodate widescreen. I will be listing what region version is needed. Most games run at 60Hz thanks to codes but if not it will be in the notes section on the list. What am I doing? What is the project all about? Testing. Lot's of time consuming testing. Not all cheat codes work and have noticeable pop-in, ruining the experience. Emulator hacks work on very few games. I am testing most if not all games for certain platforms to see what works correctly with no pop-in using cheat codes or emulator hacks. Also finding out what region version works better as I have come across differences in pop-in. I am collating lists of working games with notes and presenting them to everyone to enjoy. These will be definitive up to date lists. For platforms like GC I will be providing ini's with the cheat codes to save everyone some time. If it has bad pop-in it gets cut. I'm also trying to consolidate information. Sega Dreamcast 16:9 Widescreen Games via Flycast List The Flycast core has all of the up to date Widescreen Cheat Codes hard coded to the core itself. No copy and pasting. All you need to do is go to Quick Menu -> Options -> Emulation Hacks -> and enable "Widescreen Cheats". Please make sure "Widescreen Hacks" is NOT ENABLED. You will need to set RetroArch itself to 16:9. "Auto" won't work. YOU ONLY NEED DO THIS FOR NATIVE WIDESCREEN GAMES You can set the Flycast core resolution to how you want it. You may want to save an Game Options Override on a per game basis for RetroArch. Here is the GitHub link to the widescreen cheats for the Flycast Core that I referenced. All available codes are present at this time - https://github.com/flyinghead/flycast/blob/master/core/cheats.cpp Native 16:9 Support - Requires RetroArch itself to be set to 16:9 & requires in game display options to be set to 16:9/Wide AeroWings (USA) Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers (USA) F355 Challenge: Passione Rossa (USA) MSR - Metropolis Street Racer (USA) Rayman 2: The Great Escape (USA) Starlancer (USA) Test Drive: V-Rally (USA) Tokyo Xtreme Racer 2 (USA) Toy Commander (USA) Toy Racer (USA) TrickStyle (USA) Wacky Races (USA) Games With Working Widescreen 16:9 Cheats via Flycast Core - Requires "Widescreen Cheats" to be Enabled 18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker (USA) 4 Wheel Thunder (USA) AeroWings 2: Airstrike (Europe) Game Runs at 50Hz - 25fps Alien Front Online (USA) Blue Stinger (USA) Bomber Hehhe!

  5. Hi all, I'm trying to get flycast running through launchbox for Dreamcast games, but I'm really struggling with this at the moment and could use a few tips and pointers. I'm using CHD's for the games and they work without a hitch in retroarch on their own. The collection of games has been imported into Launchbox successfully with all the cover art and details etc. I've associated the flycast core with the Dreamcast section, but when I try to run any of the games, nothing happens, it doesn't even load retroarch at all. I have all the correct bios's in place, so it must be something to do with either file structure, filename or a launch command that I need to include. I'm guessing creating a batch file, could be a last resort to solve this. Can anyone help at all?
  6. hey so i have retroarch and redream but they wont run some roms. SO im trying demul as a last resort. I have the latest version and many dreamcast bios which seem to work find elsewhere but in demul I get the message "unable to find 'set5v0.41bin' in romset 'dc'. So im guessing either i dont have it or its in the wrong place but i used a guide and it all seems to be correct. Who knows...maybe you do ? Pls assist and if you have an alternative emu for DC pls suggest. Thanks

  9. Hi LB, 1.Doe anyone here use WD My Passport (5400 rpm) portable drive on emulation such as PS2, Dreamcast, PS3, Wii U? 2.How does it perform? 3.If you have recommendation, what External HDD I should use for emulation? I need an External HDD for portability as much as possible, external HDD that do not use external power supply. Note: I have Seagate Backup Plus HUB external hard drive 8tb, contains full PS2, DreamCast, PS3 and Wii U Games/Roms and it is stuttering every time. I also have WD My book 4tb (5400 rpm) and it works well, the problem is, It needs to be connected to the outlet in order to work.

  20. I've downloaded and successfully run both ReDream and DEmul on my Windows 10 machine, however, LaunchBox won't interface with either of them. As you can see in the pictures I've attached (regarding my DEmul attempt, which I heard is the most stable), I've associated Sega Dreamcast with DEmul and have included the necessary "Default Command-Line Parameters" as described in the following video: Despite all this, any time I try to open a Dreamcast game from within Launchbox/BigBox it doesn't even begin to launch. I've also uninstalled the Reicast core from RetroArch just to make sure it isn't seeing it and trying to use that (as Reicast via RetroArch only crashes). I've undone/redone the process and restarted the computer multiple times. Am I missing something? Note that I just paid for LaunchBox Premium yesterday; before that I've had zero issues. Does the premium version cause extra bugs or something? Thanks to everyone in advance.
  21. Hello, I looked for similar posts to ensure this wasn't covered anywhere and I couldn't find anything like this. I apologize if it's been posted elsewhere and I missed it. I've configured Demul as required: When I attempt to load a game by double clicking - absolutely nothing happens. However, if I go to command line and do the same exact thing that LB should be passing through, that works perfectly... Is some part of the string not being passed correctly? Am I missing something obvious here? I've tried everything and can't figure this out. Any help would be much appreciated on this issue. Thank you!
