Multi-disc games with .m3u files

Recommended Posts

So I got a few games for PS1(and Dreamcast) that are multi-disc. Like Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid. I hear that these games can be loaded with a .m3u file

From what I can gather, that file is basically a notepad document with the listed .cue files. for the game. So would it just be listed as follows and then I import that as the .cue file for the game?

Final Fantasy VII (Disc 1).cue

Final Fantasy VII (Disc 2).cue

Final Fantasy VII (Disc 3).cue

 

Or am I missing some key elements here?

Nope, you got it correct.

Just make sure the file has the file extension .m3u, is in the folder with your cue + bins and the file names are correctly matching the .cue files and import the .m3u.

Alright cool. If you don't mind me tacking on another question. Does loading games that way alleviate the fact that I'd need to switch "discs"? I'd imagine I'd still have to do some sort of switching when the game prompts me to do so.

Yeah you will still have to do some disk switching, refer to the emulators documentation on this. This of course relies on the emulator supporting this feature and working correctly.
