Genesis Plus GX 1.7.4 has been released.
THX Budd for the Update gonna check it out in WiiFlow
Your welcome, and thanks!
Glad this emulator is still being updated; it truly is the Kega Fusion of emulators on the Wii due to its high accuracy
Great update once again especially .ogg support! Kudos to Eke Eke for an awesome work done, yet again.
Does the new dol have NTFS support? also is there arg support to be used as Wiiflow or PL plugin?
Edit: Also is ogg support avaible in Sega-CD too, I would like to convert the huge waves to gain some free HDD space
No, it was added by fix94.
No, argv parsing has to be re-implemented too.
Yes, vorbis format is only for Mega-CD/Sega-CD audio tracks.
Yep i had 13 Sega CD games @ 5.51GB. Now i have 33 working Sega CD games @3.99GB.
Ogg support sure is gooooooooooooood
Did you use VBR or constant bit rates 128
also can you please post a sample cue file with oggs
Fix94 updated the plugin dol, now it has ogg support and ntfs support with auto mount/unmount feature
I have almost the entire US set so I imagine this would make a huge difference to storage space on my HDD. What tools did you use to convert, Turborip? All mine are in BIN + CUE format.
Dear friend the good news is that you don't even need .cue files anymore
This is beneficial in another aspect. genesis plus gx file browser now only shows 1 .iso file for every game and not .ogg file or .cue files, so you can have all sega cd files in one big common folder. Only thing left for GPGX to be perfect, is to have CD disc-art instead of megadrive cartridge artwork, showing next to the games. Oh and 32X oneday haha.
I only use .iso & .ogg files and i rename the according to the readme.pdf (page 6, text in the box).
This is the procedure, step by step: 1. I download the games as .iso & .mp3 files.
2. Then i convert the mp3 files to .ogg with Freerip. (.ogg options for that program are simply set to stereo and quality=4, i didn't tinker any other settings, see attached pic )
3. Then i put the .ogg and the .iso files in the same folder and 4. if i need renaming the audio files i do it with Bulk renamer. Thats' it.
I'll post a pic of my Sega CD folder, attached to this post, to give an example
P.S. FYI, .ogg files are also supported by WiiMednafen for PCE CD games. The process is mostly the same as here, with the only difference beeing that WiiMednafen requires a .cue file. If anyone wants help with that, i'll post a sample pic and a sample .cue file of a PCE CD game.
thanks for your help, I've already tested oggs yesterday, and all worked fine
I used nero "encode files" Tool to make 128 (CD Quality) oggs which turned out to be less than half the size of 50% VBR
As for the cue file I used ImgBurn cue maker
I have 1 cue for each game which makes life easier when it comes to wiiflow plugin and since all works fine I'm keeping them there since in case I want to delete them I'll need to rename all the oggs.
Anyways using some tiny free tools for ogg conversion can cause trouble, I tried to batch convert the waves to oggs using a free tool and found out that all oggs were corrupted,
so i used a data rescue kid to restore the deleted waves and then used nero to finish the job
If someone wants SMB supports, I shared a Gensplus 1.5.0 version with it
