Redream Emulator

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that when i import my Dreamcast roms and choose the Redream emulator and then choose a game, Launchbox takes me to the Redream main game select menu instead of the actual game. Everything else works great.

All my Dreamcast roms are .gdi and work fine using Redream directly. Interestingly I’ve managed to launch a couple of games using Launchbox but the majority still just take me to the Redream game select menu. All my games are .gdi  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

That's pretty strange. If LaunchBox is launching some games but not others, it's likely the emulator. Unless...are they arcade vs. Sega Dreamcast? Is that the difference?

I don’t think Dreamcast supports Naomi Arcade yet. I’ll investigate my rom files further and see if I can see a pattern or different file structure of my roms that launch and don’t. Strange that all of them launch directly tho.

ReDream only supports approx 80% of Dreamcast titles currently.

If it goes directly to ReDream menu, it means it's not compatible.

Use RetroArch for ones that don't run through ReDream.

Ah ok but the ones that go directly to the Redream menu, also run fine when running directly with Redream, so they do work just not from Launchbox

Did you guys ever come up with a solution for this? It happens on my PC as well. When i open Daytona USA from BigBox I get taken to the Redream Menu page and I need to select Daytona USA from there to run/start it. Daytona USA is the only Dreamcast Game I have so I dont know if it happens with any other games.

By the way I am also unable to close the Redream Emulator from my PS4 controller. Im currently forced to close it from a keyboard. Any solutions for that?

Is this on Windows or on Android?

This is the PC version.

Okay, I figured. This thread is exclusive to the Android version, so nothing here really applies to the Windows version. I don't think there are any issues with launching Redream on Windows; the default configuration should work fine. You might have better luck starting up a new thread or searching for a thread outside of the Android forum.
