Sega Naomi and launchbox

Recommended Posts

I’m slowly getting my emulators up and running with launchbox except for sega Naomi. I followed the instructions on the latest you tube video but reicast is no longer available, only flycast (when using retroarch). I placed the bin and lst files anyways but when I ran launchbox it only found one game and it would work... is there any other way to get sega Naomi to work?

Hello, i got the same problem. I tried to follow the great ETA Prime tuto video (amazing tuto as usual, congrats guys), but as Reicast is no longer available, I cannot manage how to do it using Flycast (which Roms, which BIOS,....) ... it doesn t work :(

I hope Launchbox Team will do a new tutorial for newbies like me.

Try using MAME roms/bios and running them with flycast core

Hi, thank you for the prompt reply ! I will test but what do you mean exactly by MAME roms/bios ? I just get a "classic/normal" Naomi Bios and Naomi ROms. Which type of files should I get ? 

+ do you know the name/type of files I need for the Bios ? (it was well explained in ETA Prime Tutorial, but it doesn't work with Flycast ...)

use the latest MAME romset and bios files (currently 0.215) , won't work using MAME emulator but works with flycast core in RA

PS, That ETA tutorial is over a year old, does not work the same with new core.

Hello Cataclysm67, thank you so much for your help. I finally succeed in running some Naomi titles (Crazy Taxi , Power Stone 2, DOA2, Virtua Tennis, Virtua Striker...) but some did not work (Snk vs Capcom , House of the Dead 2 etc...) but it is really a good progress for me !

Thx.

Try running others that don't work with RetroArch, with Demul 0.7a emulator

Can I play Naomi games using the MAME emulator or I need a different Sega Naomi Emulator for playing the games. I have already instaled the MAME emulator if I change the code can I play the games or to left the emulator the way how it is now?

MAME itself does not support Naomi emulation at this point. Demul would be your best bet if you don't want to use RetroArch.

These do work with the Retroarch flycast core, so you likely have issues with your rom set.

SomeNaomi roms need their corresponding chd files to load. Refere to the flycast libretro doc online. It tells you where to put the chd files.

So Im having the same problem using flycast. I thought it might be the bios I found because I could not find the exact one used in the youtube video however I was able to find a naomi bios pack and tried all of them and nothing would work for me. I've double checked everything else to make sure I didn't mess up and all looks well. I have all the games (.bin / .lst) loaded with art work in launchbox but can't get them to play to save my life. But I wont stop trying there are some amazing games in that library I would love to try. Any Advice?

Have you loaded the cord and gone into Core Information and checked the MD5 checksums against what the flycast core docs require?

Also, although bin/list format still loads, CHDs are the recommended format now. Could be the versions you have don’t work with current version of core.

Edit: The docs only give the MD5 for the Dreamcast roms. Just need to make sure the Naomi.zip bios rom are from a recent MAME release. It does list a specific file and MD5 for one of the files in that zip.

naomi.zip must include the epr-21576g.ic27 file (md5sum:3bffafac42a7767d8dcecf771f5552ba
