I’m beginning test of reicast emulator.
I installed it through setup-script experimental section
I copied bios files to the right folder
I copied a game (.gdi + 3 other files) in rom/dc folder
But the game won’t launch : the emulator launch, then I’ve 4 menus (play, music, … if I remember well), and when I hit play I have a message “insert game disc”
so I’m doing something wrong :-(
isn’t it compatible with .gdi files ?
I have to put .cdi files in rom/dc folder ?
thank you for your helpuncleslimParticipant07/03/2015 at 13:34Post count: 5

BUT reicast on other platforms is compatible with gdi files

The only file format it supports is .CDI as noted above….herbfargusMember07/03/2015 at 17:59Post count: 1858
You could try adding .gdi extension to es_systems.cfg under the Dreamcast option and see if it will work. If it does then we can ammend the source code and wiki to include that extension as wellchataigne73Participant07/04/2015 at 13:35Post count: 4

thanks a lot for pointing me to the right direction !
I edited es_systems.cfg and added .gdi to dreamcast section
and now I can play .gdi roms ; all is working ok ! :-)herbfargusMember07/04/2015 at 22:58Post count: 1858
OK brilliant, thanks for testing that. I’ll fix it upstream so in the future you shouldnt have to change it manually.
