    I tracked down the dev bios. Feels so... Strange as I'm used to the normal bios. But it does work. :3

    In HxD (hex editor) you can enter hex code with spaces or without - doesnt matter. :) (Or shouldnt. :))

    Is there improvement with the dev bios over the regular ones?

    Better startup sequence... That's about it. Still can't see your saved data. But the D on the back button is gone. So that's at least... 0.5% improvement... lol

    And if you mean game improvement, then no. There's none.

    Resident Evil Code Veronica runs pretty good. Just wrong textures all over the place. Same with Mortal Kombat Gold. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 plays nice.

    As of this posting, Sonic Adventure softlocks in Ice Cap at the board section. To work around this, pause and restart the area, and it'll skip the cutscene for the board section. The game also runs at double speed for a few seconds when loading a new area or going out of reicast menus/pressing home then going back into the emulator.

    Sonic Adventure 2's menus work, but gameplay shows corrupted colors, so it's unplayable.

    Those issues aside, both games seem to run at full speed. Looking forward to further developments on this.

    I told myself I'd wait for an updated release but I couldn't help myself, this emulator is so frickin' awesome! Cannot wait for future releases

    Chuchu rocket and soul calibur performance is great. Only real issue I'm getting is virtua tennis 2, fps seems to wildly dip between 20-60, fairly decent in London court.

    I can't use overclocking because I'm on SX OS (I know boo...). Hoping the app will add an option.

    Amazing work so far!

    CHD is, definitely, the way to go, for me. Lot of space saved.
    Reicast even plays that bootleg-looking Lumines-looking game called Irides Master of Blocks.
    Had a game glitch after trying MvC2, when it didn't before, but restarting Reicast fixed that.
    Not sure if you've used this, but it's the same way it's been done for months with RetroArch.

    Might be a bit of a pain but why not just use Atmosphere for emulation?

    If it's SX, it's probably for reasons beyond emulation.

    Always extracted gdis and searched in much smaller files (3 mb roughly) so it was instant. (1st_boot.bin and one time in one other small file I found pretty quickly).

    Only game to constantly freeze in chd seems to be Shenmue the rest of the games seems to play nicely compressed.

    You can convert them to chd. Or you can just google search for cdis.

    If you happen to have Sonic Adventure International and whant to play Sonic Adventure in Widescreen and 60 fps patch the game with the following codes.

    60 fps code.
    Find
    3C 68 75 8C 40 68 75 8C 44 68 75 8C 48 68 75 8C 30 19 05 8C 84 64 60 8C 4A 5C 05 8C BC E3 1B 8C 40 46 64 8C 52 5C 05 8C EE 29 60 8C 5C 19 8A 8C
    Replace
    0C 68 75 8C 40 68 75 8C 44 68 75 8C 48 68 75 8C 30 19 05 8C 84 64 60 8C 4A 5C 05 8C BC E3 1B 8C 40 46 64 8C 52 5C 05 8C EE 29 60 8C 5C 19 8A 8C

    Find
    44 68 75 8C 0C E2 19 8C 84 65 75 8C 12 C2 06 8C 16 19 05 8C 1A A5 08 8C 84 A7 08 8C 00 40 E7 44 00 09 00 09 D0 63 05 E2 23 33 01 8B 01 7C A0 2D
    Replace
    38 DD 10 8C 0C E2 19 8C 84 65 75 8C 12 C2 06 8C 16 19 05 8C 1A A5 08 8C 84 A7 08 8C 00 40 E7 44 00 09 00 09 D0 63 05 E2 23 33 01 8B 01 7C A0 2D


    Widescreen code.
    FIND
    24118A8C 5C118A8C 50118A8C 58118A8C

    REPLACE
    30118A8C 44231E8C 50118A8C 58118A8C



    It has some minor problems, some 2D elements (like shadows) on screen are misplaced and the cutscenes play at 2x speed but if you've beaten the game a thousand times, like me and want to replay the stages the gameplay runs just fine at 1x speed @60 fps and Widescreen.

    Video in action.



    Cheers.
