NEC - PC Engine TurboGrafx CD and ZIPs


Recommended Posts

All my TurboGrafx CDs are zipped and I have been attempting to use Retroarch to emulate these games.  The only thing that seems to happen is i get a .cue file extracted automatically in the same directory as the other zips when I try to launch.  Can I assume using zip files is not supported?  I would like confirmation before I eat up a bunch of disk space extracting them.  If zip is not supported, are there any other compressed formats such as CHD that are?  Thanks in advance.

RetroArch supports CHD files so you would need to either download the MAME set for PCECD or unzip your games and then run what you have through chdmon which is a program that comes included in MAME. I believe there are some files floating around that will allow you to run it in batch but I'm not sure where you would find them.

I appreciate the batch file and it worked like a champ.  I went from 426 sets at 147GB to 417 at 94.6GB.  Is there anyway to scan these CHDs to validate the sets?  I typically use CLRMame and DATs from redump.  CLRMame doesn't seem capable of scanning the sets in this format.  I lost some along the way and would like to see what happened.
