I’ve been testing out the experimental builds and I have the proper BIOS files (dc_boot.bin, dc_flash.bin) but every time I try and run it it gives an error that says:
unable to find BIOS in ./data/
It never created a .data file, nor did any ones that I created work. I placed the BIOS files in:
and neither of them worked. I also created a bunch of .data folders in multiple locations just to test and still no go. am I missing something?gizmo98Participant04/04/2015 at 11:03Post count: 452
./data is the right folder. If i put dc_boot.bin and dc_flash.bin in data reicast starts up. Runs only from command line atm. Sorry.

Ok. I have fixed the “startup problem”. Audio, controller mapping and speed is still a mess. Hopefully the fix will be merged today.
You can only close reicast with “ctrl+c”.cliffyboroParticipant04/04/2015 at 12:45Post count: 21
Bloody love the Dreamcast!! If I could get Code Veronica working on this I’d be made up! Thanks for the progression made GizmoherbfargusMember04/04/2015 at 18:03Post count: 1858
Thanks! The fix works in order to get the dreamcast running, but I can’t play a game. When I press play it says please insert a game disc. I have a .cdi game in the roms folder- is there a config file I’m supposed to modify to tell the dreamcast where to look for my games or a menu that I’m missing?
I found it: I added the game path to
sudo ./reicast.elf -config config:image="" to sudo ./reicast.elf -config config:image="/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/dreamcast/scalibur.cdi"
and it ran- It was a little sluggish on my Pi2 with no overclock, my snes controller worked fine even with the hardcoding of the controls. then I just pressed ctrl+c to exit.
Supposedly someone was able to get sound working with a few modifications before compiling on this thread, might be worth looking into:gizmo98Participant04/04/2015 at 19:57Post count: 452
Confirmed. A fix is already there. I have seen the audio fix. The source code needs some documented modifications.herbfargusMember04/04/2015 at 20:39Post count: 1858
Fix tested and verified for ROM path. Thanks Gizmo! Keep up the good work!herbfargusMember04/04/2015 at 23:17Post count: 1858
sound fix tested and verified. Thanks Gizmo!trixsterParticipant04/04/2015 at 23:49Post count: 76
It’s pretty good on an rpi2. The sound makes a big difference. Soul caliber has loads of glitches but it’s a great start to dream cast emulation!tre2392Participant04/09/2015 at 22:12Post count: 1
Why is it that when I put the bios file in the dc/data folder there’s always a new data folder created with the controls in it? When I try to boot the bios it’ll tell me to put the bios file in storage/dc/data i’ll do that then try to boot it again and the app closes. then I go back to it and it tells me to put the file in storage/dc/data/data and it’ll keep repeating that cycle, adding more /data’s. I have no idea why it’s doing that and I need help. I’m trying to play shadowman. I have a note 4.
