sol-feace works for me, this is what my cue file looks like:

FILE "SOL-FEACE (U).BIN" BINARY
  TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    PREGAP 00:02:00
    INDEX 01 00:35:64
  TRACK 03 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 00:47:16
  TRACK 04 AUDIO
    INDEX 00 01:02:00
    INDEX 01 01:03:43
  TRACK 05 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 01:20:03
  TRACK 06 AUDIO
    INDEX 00 04:00:00
    INDEX 01 04:01:44

    INDEX 00 08:59:00
    INDEX 01 09:00:60

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.

Renamed files, editted the cue:

FILE "Sol-Feace.iso" BINARY
  TRACK 01 MODE1/2048
      INDEX 01 00:00:00
      POSTGAP 00:02:00
FILE "Sol-Feace02.mp3" MP3
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    PREGAP 00:02:00
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
FILE "Sol-Feace03.mp3" MP3
  TRACK 03 AUDIO

....

But still no music in game.... :(

HercTNT, I think you have a .bin file, because of your cue. It is a copy of the original cd:

FILE "SOL-FEACE (U).BIN" BINARY
  TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    PREGAP 00:02:00

I have a different set, a .iso for track 1 and a lot of mp3 files...

I have no idea if that can be converted or not. your gonna have to search for a differnt file set if you can't get yours to work. Not sure what else to do. Good luck.

Some more tests:

I used a .iso file and .wav for music, and SoulFeace runs with music. The .cue is as follow:

CATALOG 0000000000000
FILE "Sol-Feace (1992)(Sega)(NTSC)(US)(Track 01 of 18)[!].iso" BINARY
  TRACK 01 MODE1/2048
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
FILE "Sol-Feace (1992)(Sega)(NTSC)(US)(Track 02 of 18)[!].wav" WAVE
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    PREGAP 00:02:00
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
...

I tested also a .bin file of Caddilacs and Dinossaurs. The music works, but is failing, it would be better without sound. The .cue is the following:

FILE "Cadillacs.BIN" BINARY
  TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    PREGAP 00:02:00
    INDEX 01 61:37:20
   
So, I got music using .wav files. And also got music using .bin file. But cannot make it work using .mp3 files.

And after doing a lot of tests I give up...

I beg if someone else got sound using .mp3 files, please post here the content of your .cue file.

Thanks!

I can't see this release anymore in Notaz website http://notaz.gp2x.de/pico.php

I am almost sure it was there once.

Why would it be removed?

I compiled the latest (i.e. from git) picodrive for opendingux, because 1.91 wouldn't play piers solar properly, but it was fixed somewhere around 1.93. You can find it here: https://gofile.io/?c=4FEJoN

Amazing, i will test this out when i repair my a320. glad to see a new development for it. Thank you!! I have repair parts on the way so hopefully it won't take to long.

Sorry, should have uploaded it somewhere better. I will try to add it to the open handhelds repo tonight for you and post back.

Hey Munchausen.

Why don't you upload the file right here? There is an option called "Attachments and other options" right underneath the box I'm typing into right now ;)
Thanks in advance!

Hmm apparently openhandhelds is broken (can't upload) and the max file size here is 512kb.

I struggled to find somewhere to upload but I think this should work https://pyra-handheld.com/boards/resources/picodrive-1-93-opendingux.4558/

Sorry for the delay, I forgot about it and just remembered

Thanks for the upload!
Too bad that it still doesn't play Game Gear ROMs. I was hoping that by v.1.93 it might have been implemented. But no. There doesn't seem to be any decent Game Gear emulators for OpenDingux.... At least none with decent display options :(

Hmm what is a good gamegear emulator that might work? I could try to port something else.

I am surprised it doesn't support it. I opened an issue on the picodrive github https://github.com/notaz/picodrive/issues/108

A decent Game Gear emulator for OD would be great. I mean, there is dingux-sms, which works kinda alright. But the thing is: GG's native resolution is just too tiny on the Dingoo display, and the stretched video modes look awfully choppy/uneven/pixelated. An emulator with a good scaler - something like the "Ayla 1.5x Upscaler" on OhBoy - that would be something!
