    Do you have dc_boot.bin, dc_flash.bin, dc_flash_wb.bin and dc_nvmem.bin?

    dc_boot and dc_flash are the only 2 that are needed. dc_flash_wb and dc_nvmem are generated by reicast. Edited to clarify which dc_flash is generated.

    You just said dc_flash is needed and dc_flash is generated... How if you need it in the first place? lol

    dc_flash_wb is generated. Again, only the initial 2 are needed. You could've drawn that conclusion if you had put any thought into it. I listed them in the same order as you in my reply. Mindblowing. Moving on.


    Sonic Adventure 1 works, while SA2 seems to not work. I haven't seen anyone try Shenmue yet.

    Currently, this is standalone. Completely independent of RA.

    If you read your last post, you said and I quote "dc_boot and dc_flash are the only 2 that are needed. dc_flash and dc_nvmem are generated by reicast."

    Sega Rally 2 won't work as it was built with the WinCE libraries and hence requires the MMU. Reicast doesn't emulate the MMU so any games that use it won't work :(

    Daytona should work.

    That's true. People were asking about Shenmue it crashed my switch almost immediately.

    I put both cdi and gdi files in a folder called reicast on the root of the sd card and neither work.


    EDIT: Ok I figured it out. You have to update the content folder in the options to recognize your rom files. Testing Sonic Adventure 1 and Shadowman.

    Sonic Adventure 1 had some weird speedups and then slowdowns but it's definitely playable. The subtitles are bugged it seems. They appear to show the first subtitle file for each scene every time someone speaks.

    Shadowman is likewise pretty playable in game but has some main menu text issues. The main menu is unreadable but the menus in game are rendered correctly, although "initial settings" is not accessible.

    House of the Dead 2 is perfectly playable.

    Crazy Taxi is perfectly playable except for some menu bugs with the widescreen option turned on.
