    a valid Sega Saturn bios file must be placed on the root of your SD card and it must be named bios.bin
    is not in the file
    what is in the file is
    boot.elf
    icon
    meta

    I got it from a site ..
    enjoy
    If you use homebrew channel

    apps\yabause\bios.bin
    apps\yabause\boot.elf


    Place in the same folder your game (must have a cue and a iso)
    rename the cue file to game.cue (your iso and mp3's can keep their original name)


    1. You need a USB keyboard for input
    2. a valid Sega Saturn bios file must be placed on the root of your SD card and it must be named bios.bin
    3. The ISO files of the games must be placed on the root of your SD card
    4. Again , ALL I DID WAS COMPILE THE SOURCE CODE , ALL CREDIT GOES TO THE YABAUSE TEAM

    Can you even play many Saturn games on the PC? I seriously doubt it's worth more than a fun experiment.

    I'm trying to use it now with nights...I get to the menu and whenever I press 2 nothing happens..when I press "start emulation" I get to a black screen and when I press the power button I get a code dump.

    If this does work, what games are worth playing on the Saturn. I did buy a Dreamcast and liked a few games on that system, so I'm not too familar with Saturn Games, any good ones that haven't already made it to other consoles... (like Sonic,Nights)

    So....to play a game, using the HBC, I need to:
    - put the bios in the apps/yabause/ dir
    - put the game in the same dir???
    or
    - put the game in the root of the SD??
    but in a dir or just like this, cue+iso+mp3 ??

    the cue must be named game.cue, but if I have more than one game? I can only have one game each time?

    I believe it's the first one. You might want to wait, this seems like barely an alpha

    yeah yeah....I've managed to get this emu working: tried with a Euro bios, put the cue+iso+mp3 in the same folder of the HBC apps dir, and I've discovered it doesn't need the USB keyboard...I've used the wiimote...

    The bios starts, the game seems to start, but it don't go further the SEGA screen...
    Maybe it's the game...maybe it's the emu...
