How to play emulator games with more than one Disk?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I start using the Launch box, and everything is ok. Just have a problem with games that have more than one disk (example Final Fantasy VII for playstation). How can I manage it, and change disk when it's necessary? Thank you

Hmm, good question einstone. I guess it would depend on how the emulator supported it. Currently, there's probably no way to make LaunchBox do it, unfortunately. I'll add a to-do item to my list to support it. What emulator are you using? If anyone else has used multiple disks in emulators, feel free to chime in. Thanks, Jason

Hi, I've found a little feedback on this (specificaly PS1) and how people do this manualy when the emulator (or game for that matter) asks for another disc. Hope it helps. https://forums.emulator-zone.com/showthread.php?t=18512 This seems logical to me, since many multidisc games have save features right before their respective disc-change-moments. you'll only be playing a small portion of the game again, just like on the original console. is there a way to batch this? I'm guessing the same can be said for other emulators. Especially PS1 and DC have multi disc games where this is an issue, but i guess every disc-based-console has a multidisc game somewhere in their collection, So if their emulators should work kind of the same way.

Wow this is an old thread. There have also been a few other threads on this. :P What I tell people is to use Save States and load the state on the new disc, or to use RetroArch and use the disc switching feature. For PS1 you can even use PBP files which combines discs.
