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

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if the .bat method is usable in combination with mine. It may be, but I can't confirm as I've never used it. Try just directing it to your normal SSF.exe.

I think this is the bat file you need for Zombeavers method.


@echo off

start /wait "" "SSF.exe"

"C:\Program Files (x86)\DAEMON Tools Lite\DTLite.exe" -unmount 0 

I say think because it has been a while and this bat file was still in my SSF folder named SSF Run After.bat

So you have:

1) directed the rom path in the library entry to the .cue

2) unchecked "use an emulator" in the "Emulation" tab

3) gone to the additional apps tab in the game entry and added an entry for SSF, directed it to the SSF.exe, and checked "Automatically Run After Main Application"

If you've done these, what happens when you try to launch the game? Do you see the little DT window saying "Mounting image..."?

 

I was missing where the .cue was opened with DT and now everything works!!! :D

Now if only SSF would let me calibrate the controller without it just auto scrolling through the buttons without me pushing anything and freezing at "Rapid Start" at the end.

 

Never mind. I recalibrated my Xbox 360 controller and now it's ok. :)

Is there a way to edit SSF's controller setup for multiple games at a time instead of one by one?

Never mind. I found a .ini for one of the games, copied the input settings and copied it to the main ssf.ini. Bingo!

Nope :(

Too bad. I have a ton of roms that need to have them added to. But at least someone aka @Zombeaver helped me finally get SSF working great with LB and Daemon-Tools! It is 100% speed on SSF but slow on RA.

Yeah I know your pain with setting up the additional apps for every game. Before Mednafen came along that's how all of my Saturn games were setup. It's a real pain but it works at least.

Odd. Is it doing it for everything?

Have you tried restarting your computer?

Yes, it is doing it for everything and yes, I've restarted my PC.

I'm going to restore my PC. It did a Windows update last night. I have a feeling that is what caused this.

Err...alright haha. That's dedication right there :D

If that doesn't work you could maybe try changing it from fullscreen to windowed and then closing (SSF should remember your screen size settings) and then reopening and going fullscreen. You could also try right-clicking on SSF.exe and going to the compatibility tab and checking "Disable visual themes" and/or "Disable desktop composition". Just throwing stuff out there!
