    nope
    Yea games from the eshop are split already from the store (he must be pirating games then if he has to manually split). You're right, he will see eventually that exfat is garbage.

    lol compressed to CHD actually "compressed" the textures eh?

    SAB2 is borked, SAB1 works fine (with minor graphical stuff) Not sure about SXD.

    im gonna try anyway but can we use gdi/bin formats? if so can it be in a subfolder within the sd:/reicast/ folder?

    looks like it can be in a folder but you have to add it in the settings :)

    nope
    I am using split bins with a GDI file like this:

    Code:
    (As an example!)
    SD:/Reicast
         /Reicast/Data (Bios files)
         /Reicast/Games
         /Reicast/Games/Sonic Adventure
         /Reicast/Games/Sonic Adventure/sonic1.gdi
         /Reicast/Games/Sonic Adventure/sonic1_track1.bin
         /Reicast/Games/Sonic Adventure/sonic1_track2.bin
       --so on and so on--

    Considering there are no such games as "Sonic Adventure Battle 2", "Sonic Adventure Battle 1", or "Sonic XD", you're going to have a really hard time running those on anything.

    If you (and the original poster) meant "Sonic Adventure DX" and "Sonic Adventure 2: Battle", you should look at the Dolphin emulator, since those are GameCube games.

    Yes. The sonic games are not known for logical naming conventions. Whatever sonic adventure 1 and 2 are named on Dreamcast, whatever. <3

    Sorry, for some reason i was thinking pcsx rearmed was at a point where 2x resolution was no problem, thus being a way better option.
    i guess i had that mixed up.

    Ok whatever, I'm not the one interested in Bleemcast. No idea why you seem to care so much about something so trivial.

    chd should work. did you create those chd images yourself? from the gdi that works? I'm curious cause the chds are in theory a byte to byte identical image (when uncompressed)

    Sword of the Berserk seems perfect during gameplay. The cut-scenes made me almost cry from laughing since the models (or parts thereof) start to randomly rotate before they pop back to the right location.

    So I'm having trouble getting anything to work, a lot of them just crash when I press start or get to the main screen, I tried 2 games that they said were working, Jet Grind Radio, and Crazy Taxi, both cause me to have to reboot my switch, I tried Aero Wings and I got to the game menu, and then it crashed when I went to select a game mode, in fact the menu was jumbled and I couldn't read hardly anything. When putting the bios in I renamed dc_boot.bin, to dc_bios.bin, only because that's what I've been told to do in the past, I don't know if that is the reason but I know I must be doing something wrong if everyone else can seem to get a few games working.

    Are you launching reicast with full ram acces (pressing R in some game icon)?
