    Probably not, is that in the settings menu of the emulator?

    What CFW are you using ?
    With SXOS is pretty straightforward, I don't know for the others.

    I'm sure your issue comes from the memory usage: do you hold R while loading a NS game in order to enter HBL with full RAM access ?
    "dc_bios.bin" worked for me, just put it un root/reicast/data.

    Edit: Oops, I'm too slow...

    I'm running Hekate_ctaer 4.10, I've found very little information about this on YouTube, other than people running lots of games, which says to me that I'm doing something wrong.

    Can you access the 'homebrew launcher' by holding R while launching an official game ?
    You should access the same menu as you do when clicking the photo-album thingy, but this time, you'll be able to use reicast (and N64 games on retroarch).

    I really don't get what you're talking about, I held R down while launching an official game on custom firmware and nothing happened, I also held it down while launching the photos app and it launched into the photos, which was new, nevertheless it launched into my homebrew launcher when I launched it without holding down the R button. Anyway, I'm still stuck, crazy taxi crashes when I select a driver.

    What CFW are you using? Atmosphere? SXOS? ReiNX? If you're solely just using Hekate as a CFW, I highly suggest using one of those CFWs I mentioned as they will open homebrew by holding R when launching a game. You NEED to launch the homebrew menu using a game because doing it by the album doesn't grant you full access to the RAM. Without the RAM, it will crash every time.

    Marvel vs Capcom 2 (2D games all have this issue. Once this is gets fixed and also the local multiplayer support. I will be happy):

    Tested with SX OS

    Confidential Mission (US) (chd) - Playable with some minor screen popping
    Virtua Cop 2 (JPN) (cdi) - Unplayable Freezes at Sega logo

    Ironically Crazy Taxi 2 in chd format keeps crashing but the cdi format is playable. If any games crash try a it in a different format.

    No, those forwarders give you the extra ram without doing anything but selecting the game.
