Oh, its not bad. just the usual problems with SDL rendering compared to OpenGLES, the CD Titles run excellently, as do the SGX ones. Sure I can make it available, I will edit the post once its uploaded somewhere!jayminer wrote:Tearing sounds a little scary but I would still be interested in trying this if possible?
They will run but as is usual with RetroArch the Bios file has to be named VERY specifically, they are to slow to be realistically playable anyway.KitchUK wrote:I tried to get the cd games working with the retroarch core in RetroPie and it was having non of it. Thus was mainly for the Ys 1 & 2 set. I included the bin and cue and the bios but it wouldn't run it.
They work fine with the posted Binary, in fact I haven't found a title yet that doesn't work, even Ginga Fukei Densetsu Sapphire (CD + Arcade Card Pro) which a lot of Emulators struggle with.Jessie wrote:I was kind of hoping to replay Gate of thunder and Lords of thunder.

Agreed but as I said in the Forward that was mainly due to publishing conflict (Nintendo's binding third party contracts, later deemed illegal but to late to save the system) and a poor marketing campaign against a very clever/skilled one by Sega. Due to its failure in the US it never got an official release inEurope but practically 'Built' the Grey Import market here. As far as games not ageing well, that could describe most retro systems but my PCE collection far exceeds the MegaDrive one (and in the amount I use them), but as I have indicated before a lot of Retro Gaming is nostalgia based.Jessie wrote:With Japan as exception they weren't very popular systems so I'm not surprised that there wasn't much interst and to be honest many of the games didn't age well, but there are some definate gems in the TG16/PCE library.
Yeah I read the readme and noticed that, but it was just about this moment my SD-card decided it would rather be corrupted than not :/Mednafen only renders correctly in XWindows, not console (that's why you could hear the sound) but in conjunction with the dispmanx back end the opposite (Console not X). There should be a README Doc in the Zip which explains everything along with some recommendations of the best AAA Software.
I got a Core II and the CD Interface Unit, it's quite ugly since the CD Interface Unit looks like it's designed for the White PC-Engine but it's charming in it's own way The PC-Engine unit itself is quite cheap to buy from Japan, even with ebay-prices, but getting a CD Unit that works can be a bit expensive :/Dam! Which one did u get? (White, Core, Core II etc.). It's probably the only console I ever regretted selling (it had to go to use as collateral for my imported Super Famicom). I keep 'toying' with the idea of purchasing a SuperGrafx with CD drive because although the best Titles are very expensive (I believe Ginga Fukei Densetsu Sapphire is upwards of $2000 now) an EverDrive is available (although it doesn't work with SGX Titles which also rules out 1941 on cost grounds) and because the cost of CD R/W was prohibitive at the time (no copy protection!) I believe ISO's can be burned to Disc and played!
