How to use SSF with Launchbox

Recommended Posts

SSF is a Sega Saturn emulator. It is the best one out there, and way more compatible and faster than Mednafen. However it is hard to use since you cannot run cue/bin, iso and md5 files directly and need a virtual drive. Here is a very easy tutorial which does not require one.

To start download SSF from here: http://aaaaaaaa.g2.xrea.com/ssf/files/SSF_PreviewVer_R16.zip

Once you have downloaded it, extract it to some directory.
So we don't need a virtual drive and we can launch the games easier, this tool is needed:https://www.reddit.com/r/emulation/comments/e9cqrd/drag_drop_rom_loader_for_ssf_emulator_sega_saturn/

Extract it to your SSF folder. Make sure you add it as an exception in your antivirus. The tool has no viruses, they are false positives.

Now make a new directory in your SSF folder called Bios. Put your bios files in there.

Open SSF.exe. Click on Option(O) then click on Option(O) under it.

Select your Saturn Bios, then restart SSF. Click on Option(O) once again and click on Controller and set your controls. Finally, close SSF.

When in Launchbox, go to Manage Emulators. When selecting the executable, do not select SSF.exe. Instead, select SSF-RomSelector.exe. 
In command line parameters type -fullscreen.

Add your games. If there are any cue files in your set, select those instead of the bin, ccd or iso files. 

And thats it! To add japanese Sega Saturn games, do the same thing(copy the emulator to a different folder) but instead use a japanese bios.

I don't reccomend you use SSF with Sega Titan Video games, they will not work well with the SSF Rom Selector tool. Use the Kronos emulator instead.
