Another thing happened.
The majority of the emulators from the emulator menus have dissapeared and now every time I load them from the Explorer they crash or they cant load ROMs.

Any solution for this?
Sounds like your internal SD card has become corrupted, but the only way to know for sure is by purchasing another internal SD card and flashing it with the UselessRS97 image.
Although i would recommend using another sd card if possible, it's definitely not broken for good. I myself am using the sd card that came with it and have had little to no corruption. However, you must careful, especially with the USB mounting.
I did not consider using my launcher for firmware 1.3 but in light of this, i might as well...

And also, it is definitely corruption. I think that It's only GmenuNext and its links files that got corrupted though.

Thanks for the response. I will make sure to use the USB mounting wisely now.


I cant buy another SD card though.

I would NOT buy any microSD cards from eBay. They sell counterfeit cards even though seller has good reviews. I've gotten burned several times. (just my 2 cents)

I second that thought... Only buy your flash memory from authorized retailers in your region.  You don't want counterfeit cards.


Maybe someone can help me with my DOSBox issue... It is 50% below the screen area, meaning 50% of the screen is cut-off.  In some programs I can blindly enter using the keyboard, when I push the LB button, the screen is smushed, like it is supposed to be.  However, as soon as the on-screen keyboard goes away, the screen goes back to being below the screen and strangely sized.  I have tried playing around with the dosbox.conf file to fix this, but haven't come up with anything... Thank you in advance for your assistance! (And many thanks for this RS-97 firmware!)

What about buying from AliExpress? Go for the "Handled by AliExpress" listings.

You can get official SanDisk and Samsung Micro SD cards through there.

Does "Handled by AliExpress" guarantee that they're genuine cards? Good to know!

Yeah but even those are still really expensive.

Alright guys, it took a while but i hope you'll like the new Service pack 9 !
What's new ?

- SMS Plus got rebased around SMS Plus GX. This results in much improved compatibility. (with additional fixes from me)
The audio code used to be terrible but that also is now improved, using PortAudio instead.
As a result, it is silky smooth. (as long as the game can run smoothly that is)
(The cruel irony is that currently, the GCW0 cannot run Bad Apple SMS unlike this new version. I'm considering porting it back to that console)

- DosBOX was terrible : It wasn't properly scaled and it also had some usability issues. Thankfully, pingflood greatly improved it.
It now requires a special format for games. For example, for Duke Nukem, you need to create a ".dos" file with the following content :
Code: [Select]
[autoexec]
mount C "/mnt/int_sd/roms/dos/"
C:
cd DUKE
dn1.exe
Change the /mnt/int_sd/roms/dos/ according to the location of your dos games.
In this case, it requires a folder called DUKE with the executable dn1.exe inside of it.

- FCEUX adds back the scaling options such as bilinear and aspect fullscreen. Using bilinear can slow down emulation though !

- Dingux-MSX & Dingux-2600 got minor fixes.

- GMenuNext is now provided separately. You only need to update it if you flashed it for the first update or are behind updates.

It's not over, as i need to look at Temper and Picodrive to fix the flickering issues among other things...
Hope you enjoy it.

Btw, i am still working on the external firmware but i'll only be able to resume working on it tomorrow or the day after that...

Wow!!! Great news!  Thanks for updating the DOSBox, it works fine now.
Haven't had any flickering in Temper, it seems to work great here...I do remember Picodrive flickering.

What is the status of FMV games or games from 1997?
