    Hey everyone. I need some guidance with RetroArch. I know how to set it up properly. I have Nintendo consoles, Sega consoles, NES, Atari, etc all running fine. I really want to get Sega Naomi games running, using the Reicast core. The problem that I'm having is that when I scan my Naomi ROMs directory, it doesn't create a playlist (.lpl) file. I'm thinking that maybe I have a bad ROM set? They look correct based on what I've read, they are the .bin / .lst set. This is what I have tried:

    1) Obtained a pack of 111 ROM folders, each containing a .bin, .lst, .eeprom, .nvmem file (12 of the .bin are .dat files for some reason).
    2) In RetroArch I downloaded the Reicast core
    3) I have the correct BIOS file, renamed it to naomi_boot.bin and placed it in \RetroArch\system\dc\
    4) I scanned the directory full of the 111 folders

    It's not creating a playlist, and therefore Naomi is not showing up in RetroArch. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    So the issue is that RetroArch cannot scan a directory and create a lst file for Naomi yet. You have to go to Main Menu > Load Content > browse to .bin file.
