After more reading up about these emulators I see that these only work on the A320 and not the A380, is there any chance you might be able to get a version working on the A380 for us please? We would really love it!

Hey guys, I've compiled the new Picodrive sources for the A320 (OpenDingux), I haven't tested 32x or Sega CD yet but Genesis runs ok.

DOWNLOAD!

Thanks for this port! I was using picodrive 1.35. ;)

Can you tell me what file format is expected for mega-cd games?

I tried SoulFeace and SonicCD, both in iso files, but none works. After I selected the iso file the emulator returns to main menu.

Thanks!

mmmm I have only tested Sonic CD and is in .iso, have you tested that game in .bin? maybe the game isn't compatible with the emulator or your BIOS files are corrupted.

This is total great news! Thank you so much, registered here after long time lurking just to thank you for this effort. This is the first time 32x runs in the Dingoo A320, AFAIK. Tested Knuckles Chaotix and it runs flawlessly, at least in the graphic department, though crawling at 1 fps. But I didn't use any overclock nor configured anything inside Picodrive yet. Incredible to see these news for such an old and retired gadget, yet a great one, nonetheless. Two years ago you would be much more praised for this.
Sonic 3 runs best in this version than any other emulator in the A320, native, OD or Legacy Dingux... Didn't test other games yet, but this is very promising.

Played Koei Flying Squadron and Soulstar. Again, both looked and played great. However, I did not get music in either. This is when i find it music is not supposed to play is it? LOL. It seems i don't know the difference between psg and cdda audio. Either way, this is still great stuff. love it!!

Have you placed the bios files in some specific folder? Do you have any config file?

I just put the bios files in picodrive folder, and it says 'no bios files found'.

It doesnt have a menu option to set bios folder, does it?

Place the bios files in /local/home/.picodrive, the names must be:
USA=us_scd1_xxxx.bin
EUR=eu_mcd1_xxxx.bin
JPN=jp_mcd1_xxxx.bin

Thanks! It works like a charm!

Tested SonicCD, SoulFeace and Final Fight iso.

What I have to do to play sonic cd with music? I can't find how to do it  :(

Edit: You have to use the .CUE to launch the game, I'm a noob lol. This emu is amazing, thx for your work!

your not a noob, i had no idea on the cue file. Appreciate it :)  I'm sure it was in the directions somewhere, but i like figuring out stuff for myself, that will teach me.

Well, I moved the bios file and started using the cue files. Amazing how much better it works LOL. And to think i was perfectly happy before. Thanks guys!!

Are you using ISO with mp3 audio files?

The .CUE is a text file, right?

Where you put this file? In the same folder of the ISO file?

Can you put here the content of your .CUE file?

Thanks!

I'm using Iso with cue. the cue file goes in the same folder as the iso. That i'm aware of, you cannot post anything rom related as to where when and how. I do know that if you arleady have an iso, there are programs that will created cue sheets for you. Google it and you should get some results. otherwise you will have to look for the places that offer games already set this way.

I tried SoulFeace, but it works with no audio music.

I selected the .cue file from picodrive to run the game. This is the .cue I used:

FILE "Sol-Feace.iso" BINARY

      INDEX 01 00:00:00

Any thoughts?

If the CUE says...
Quote
FILE "asdkl?.iso" BINARY
  TRACK 01 MODE1/2048
      INDEX 01 00:00:00
      POSTGAP 00:02:00
FILE "asdkl?02.mp3" MP3
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    PREGAP 00:02:00
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
...then the name of the ISO must be "asdkl?.iso" and the first track name must be "asdkl?02.mp3", I hope you understands me, my English skills are crappy.
