Sega Saturn Retroarch cue file problem

Recommended Posts

I have done everything you are describing, and yet this didn't work with Deep Fear and Panzer Dragoon Saga either: (

Also, I might be wrong, but doesn't Mednafen Saturn core not support save-states? In this case the only way to play these games would be to rename either the disk files or the saves...

Send the m3u file, the .cue sheets, a screenshot of the folder that contains the disc images, and a screenshot of the launcher tab from the game in your library.

Nothing I can do if I can't see anything.

good evening all, i use this topic cause i have problem with sega saturn swap.

i'm trying swap function, in the m3u i put first the 2nd disc, start sega saturn, the game ask me to put disc 1, when i need to swap disc, i open tray, choice 1st disc, then close tray. One game continue to say me please insert disc 1, other games sega saturn reset.

With psx is perfect.

Maybe is normal that if you put first the second disk a real sega saturn reset anyway?

I think it depends on the game. I'm thinking that some games will take you back to the CD player screen as soon as an eject signal is sent and others don't. I don't know that for sure though. I don't have enough first-hand experience doing it in Mednafen/Beetle Saturn (or a real Saturn) to say. I know it doesn't work this way in Mednafen/Beetle PSX (or on a real PSX), which doesn't reset when the eject button is pressed.

It should also be noted that swapping was literally just implemented (in the Retroarch core) less than a week ago at this point, so you'll need to make sure your core is up to date. I do know that swapping doesn't work correctly in the game Enemy Zero, but this is true even in standalone Mednafen. I know that someone else on the forums got disc swapping to work on the game Lunacy with standalone Mednafen. And based on one of the responses to the tweet below, apparently someone else got it to work with Policenauts.

did you go to tools manage emulators and edit the RetroArch entry to use the mednefen core under the associated platform I believe by default LB uses the Yabause core.

The emuparadise downloads are known to be funky and not work well with Mednafen. You may wanna look for Dark Water releases, isozone has them and theinternetarchive has good ones as well.

yeah if something doesn't work in LB your 1st troubleshooting step should be to get it to run in the emulator without LB this helps narrow down what your problems may be

If you are getting a straight up crash, the bios image is most likely wrong. Make sure you get the exact bios images that are compatible with the Mednafen core - mpr-17933.bin and sega_101.bin, and place them in the system folder of Retroarch. This way you should at least see the emulator fire up.
