Can't launch Naomi GD, CHD Games in Launchbox

Recommended Posts

Hello All, 

 

This is a follow up to my previous post regarding demul and Sega Naomi. I was able to import the Naomi games thanks to @DOS76, unfortunately when I try to launch a GD rom, demul appears but nothing happens after that. I receive no errors from Launchbox or Demul. Could this be an issue with a plugin in Demul? Non-GD roms are able to launch fine and I have the roms & bios directory highlighting my mame folder with a merged chd set included.

 

Thanks!

Do you have the plug-in selected in Demul settings? Also can you run the game directly in Demul without trying to launch through Launchbox?

Yes I have the chd plugin selected. No it still thinks I dont have the nessicary chd files even though I pointed the emulator toward the mame folder with the chd set included.

Can you give an example of a game you are trying to run that is not working?

I'm currently at work right now but guilty gear xx is what I used as a test rom. I believe the error indicates that gdl0011.chd is not found in romset ggxx.

Are your chd files unzipped and in the properly named folder?

No, what name should the folder be? I have the entire chd pack of .204. Even when unpacking the chd I still received the error.

Each chd for a game should be in its own folder named after the games zipped file and the chd unzipped inside. 

So for Guilty Gear XX you should have a folder named ggxx and then the chd inside. 

[Your Rom Location]\ggxx\gdl-0011.chd

I've found that in the past you didn't need the chd's in game specific folders for Demul but don't think it hurts if you do either.

Hello All,

 

Sorry for the late response. The chd files are all actually unzipped. I placed the chd in the ggxx foler but it still said that it couldn't find it. After then extracting the game archive and placing the chd file in with the correct plugin path I received a new error. I'm not sure what this means. I changed the plugin path from mame to ggxx, that could possibly be it.2083471653_Capture3.thumb.PNG.4ffc1f6c760c211a98f6a33f2d3f7c46.PNG

That is the file that is in the ggxx.zip rom file that is needed for the game. Do you have that zip file as well? You need both the zip and chd for that game and you need to make sure Demul knows where they both are.

Hello All, thank you for your responses. The issue has been resolved, I didn't realize demul didn't check sub folders, once I placed the game archive, chd and bios in the same folder the game ran successfully. Thanks again everyone for your assistance.
