New Reicast builds
« on: August 03, 2018, 11:31:05 pm »
Running Legacy on my XD, can anyone else get the new builds of Reicast to run?  It finally supports backgrounding so you can leave and come back but any new build crashes on my XD when trying to load a game.

It may just be one of the latest builds... if the LATEST build is causing your games to crash, use a build right before, etc.

I have the latest loaded on my xd plus... works fine but some games still fail to load that the REICAST team is still attempting to fix. (Shenmue 2, Test Drive Le Mans, & Skies of Arcadia).

Hi, which version are you using? I'm also using legacy rom and i just tried the latest build right now:

It's not crashing, actually it's working just fine, but it doesn't support background. I tried to switch to another app and then after returning to Reicast it went back to the emulator menu.

I've tried both the latest builds from the Reicast CI page and also the beta build from the Play store (which is supposed to be working as well).  Both crash when starting a disk image.

I did finally get this to work last night, I uninstalled all builds of Reicast and deleted all configs etc, rebooted, went to the play store and installed the Beta build, set the bios and rom dirs and sure enough it now works in background mode!  Really nice to load up a game and not have to wait until a save point to close the XD.

It's strange that this new version creates another entry at the apps menu. I checked the newer one, grey color instead of blue, and it's working, finally! Now they only need to implement the save state function.

They have not been able to have Cheats or Cheat Discs to Load yet, huh? If not, might be able to use GameGuardian, unless the Address/s change.

I tried but GameGuardian didn't worked. Any emulator for Android support this app?

Get RetroArch. If you have your Device Rooted, here is the newest Reicast Core that works. Device will get Warm, but not too bad.
Place in " /data/data/com.retroarch/cores "

Has anyone been able to get Unreal to run with the newer versions?
