Should I even bother with Dreamcast, Sega Saturn or PS2?

Recommended Posts

You want cue + bin only. I have fixed up some games that came with mp3 or wav files though. For wav files just mount the cue sheet with Daemon Tools and then use ImgBurn to generate a new cue + bin from that. Games with mp3 files you have to convert the mp3s to wav files and modify the cue sheets references of mp3 to wav and wave. I did a video on fixing those. Not sure about aif format and if they would need to be converted first or not before mounting and regenerating a new cue + bin.

I load up the .cue file in Retroarch (using Mednafen Sega Saturn) and it loads the emulator and goes to a CD Player type screen instead of loading the game.

PSX ??

Are you using Retroarch or stand alone Mednafen ? If you are using Retroarch you need the Mednafen Saturn core.

Retroarch. I never got stand alone Mednafen to work. Yes, I realize that and I have that as well. That's what I'm using to load the SS emulator through RA.

Ok it's just that you mentioned PSX so I thought maybe you were using the Mednafen PSX core.

If you are getting the cd screen then there are 2 possibilities.

Is it a PAL region game ? PAL games do not work yet for now, they can be fixed with the region patcher tool but it isn't 100%.

The other possibility is your disk image may be a bad dump and has errors and may be fixable using CDMage. I use the version of CDMage on Emuparadise. Load the cue sheet into CDMage then click Action and Scan For Corruption, then Action > Repair  Corrupted Sectors. Once that is done go to File > Save as and save out a new cue + bin.

All of the images that I have on my PC are NTSC\(U). None are PAL. I just tried scanning Albert Odyssey (U) with CDMage and it said there were no errors.

Something else that just came to mind because you mention Albert Odyssey, what is the exact file name ?

The reason I ask this is because Zombeaver was having problems with his until he renamed it. The copy he had was a really long weird file name and after he shortened it to a shorter simpler name it worked. It seems that Mednafen doesn't like long weird names in it's files.

Try changing the name of the cue + bin and don't forget to edit the cue sheet to match the bin name.

Try repairing it and saving it out as a new cue + bin even though it says no errors.

I can guarantee you that Albert Odyssey is a game that works. I have it working and so does Zombeaver.

Do any other games work ?
