    I've just started playing the Mega CD version of Snatcher and while it runs pretty well I've noticed it can take a long time for your action selections (advance, investigate, etc) to appear in some scenes. The graphics and sounds load fine, but the actions can take up to a minute.

    So far this has only happened in two scenes, bit each time you go back to that scene it's the same. Any idea why this might happen?

    Are you on an N3DS or O3DS?

    While I cannot answer for why this might happen I recommend that you check out PicoDrive core for Retroarch. I find that it performs much better on the N3DS than the standalone emulator.

    I tried Retroarch but had the same result. Not a huge issue, can always play on my PC Weird though.

    Shame on me for the mistake. I meant to say try it using the Genesis Plus core. Works much better for Mega CD games than PicoDrive ... at least in my experience. I’be compressed my isos using CHD and don’t have any slowdown in Snatcher.

    Figured it out myself using binmerge

    edit: nvm it still reads it as an audio cd

    edit 2: selected the CD-ROM option in the audio player and it booted

    Hi, i made a forwarder pico driver cia for the The Disney Collection: Mickey and Donald using NSUI, wich came with 2 games in one rom, Castle of Illusion and Quackshot.
    The problem is always when a use restart option in pop up menu (when i tap the lower screen on old 3ds xl) it restart the current game and i've never been able to return to title select. How can i do a full shut-down on picodriver emulator or a full-reset with these forwarders? It's possible or only with the standalone emulator? Is there any hotkey or combination to do so?

    Do I make the folder called picodrive_3ds as it is not present for me, if so, do I also make a bios folder? I am having trouble getting picodrive to read cd roms is all, maybe because of the file format.

    Both this an Temper PCE seem limited on what file formats they will accept, I'd advise using Genesis Plus GX on RetroArch instead.

    /3ds/picodrive_3ds/bios/ for Sega CD. Files should be named bios_cd_u.bin, also j and e.

    /3ds/temperpce_3ds/syscards/ for Turbo CD. syscard3.pce is the file

    Both emulators read bin/cue format.

    They however do not support .cue with multiple .bins, which is the default format for Redump.
