  1. Yaba Sanshiro is released!

    uoYabause has been replaced by Yaba Sanshiro on Android. This is a very good Sega Saturn EMU with excellent compatibility. If you still have uoYabause as your EMU in your Hyperspin cfg you'll notice it no longer runs. http://www.uoyabause.org/blogs/46

    Credit and very special thanks goes to @Avar and @Black Hazor, who contributed towards this project in a big way - actually purchasing some missing games, so that we could all have nice artwork. This is @Avar's set that he uploaded several weeks ago, with 'inauthentic' artwork that I was able to identify replaced, and missing discs added. There may still be a few inauthentic discs here and there, but there are substantially less than there were. In some cases, ebay photos were used. The quality is not the best. The discs are round and authentic, but maybe they have a reflection or light that wouldn't be present if we had been using actual scans to create the artwork. They're acceptable, but ideally, they will eventually be replaced with something better. The short list is as follows: AeroWings 2 - Air Strike (USA)Bust-A-Move 4 (USA)Capcom vs. SNK - Millennium Fight 2000 Pro (Japan)Ducati World Racing Challenge (USA)Giga Wing 2 (USA)Godzilla Generations - Maximum Impact (Japan)Grinch, The (USA)Gundam Side Story 0079 - Rise from the Ashes (USA)Hello Kitty no Magical Block (Japan)Inhabitants - Dreamcast (World) (Unl)Magforce Racing (USA)Marvel vs. Capcom - Clash of Super Heroes (USA)Maximum Pool (USA)Monaco Grand Prix (USA)MTV Sports - Skateboarding Featuring Andy McDonald (USA)Netto de Tennis (Japan)Next Tetris - On-line Edition, The (USA)Puyo Puyo 4 (Japan)Q-Bert (USA)Rippin' Riders (USA)Sega Marine Fishing (USA)Sno-Cross Championship Racing (USA)Speed Devils - Online Racing (USA)Speed Devils (USA)Sports Jam (USA)Super Euro Soccer 2000 (Japan)Super Runabout - San Francisco Edition (USA)Surf Rocket Racers (USA)Urban Chaos (USA)Virtua Striker 2 (USA)Wacky Races (USA)Wild Metal (USA)Yu Suzuki Game Works Vol. 1 (Japan) If you own any of these games, please help by getting involved. If you have a collection of Sega Dreamcast discs, a decent scanner, and would like to contribute towards making better quality artwork, please visit the following thread: Also be sure to post a reply if you've identified 'inauthentic' artwork, and we'll do the best we can to get it replaced with something better.
  3. Long story short - I reinstalled Retroarch because the core updater was not working. My Hyperspin settings stayed intact after the re-install, so all I had to do was fix the bios path to get most of my installed emulators working in HS again. Almost all emulators worked after that except the Sega ones. Took a closer look at them and they were all using the Picodrive core. Thought it might be an issue with the core, so I changed my settings.ini from: parameters=cores/picodrive_libretro_android.so to parameters=cores/genesis_plus_gx_libretro_android.so All of the Sega emulators worked fine after that. I still need Picodrive to play 32X games though. Picodrive core is installed and I updated it via the core updater. Any ideas on whats wrong and how I can fix it? Using ShieldTV Pro with internal 500GB hard drive.

    I pulled most of the wheels in this set from one of Aorin's packs, credit goes to him for organizing it, and all of the contributors that actually made the wheels. All I've done is fill in blanks, so that we can have a complete set for the current database. I've given the wheels a quick run through - quality ranges from acceptable to excellent. Many of them will need to be redone in order to pass as 'official.' But, that is beyond my ability. They're not terrible. You most likely won't notice flaws unless you are actually looking for them. My hope is that those awesome Adobe Illustrator guys get this system on their radar, and decide to overhaul the entire set. They will surely use at least some of the wheels already in this one. But in the meantime, if 'good enough' is good enough, enjoy this wheel set. Included in this pack is a folder called 'Large.' It contains WIP photoshop (psd) files, a few alternate logos, and large versions of files before they were resized. I didn't bother to clean it up or organize it. If you have a better quality version of any of these logos, please upload it to the following thread:

  11. UHD Sega Dreamcast Jewel Case Project WIP View File The "UHD Sega Dreamcast Jewel Case Project" is a team effort between myself, @fire10, and @Black Hazor. It is very much a work in progress. Our goal is to provide the community with a Ultra Hi Definition, future-proofed set of Sega Dreamcast box art. Black Hazor has managed to collect high quality scans for over half of the current official database, and has actually volunteered to purchase some of the missing games. He truly jumpstarted this project... because I was on the fence about just putting together something far less extraordinary. Fire10 started this project, and has contributed design ideas, invaluable feedback, and is currently working on 'special' jewel cases that will not work with the basic templates we've already designed. Thanks goes to @goofers for providing the PAL template. Special thanks to @Avar, @Kondorito, for feedback and tips, and especially @JSinn for help polishing the final versions of our templates. A regular HD project is already in the works. It will include everything from this project resized to usable HyperSpin 1.4 sizes. Since this project will not be finished any time soon, that project will be finished first most likely. When this one is complete, that one will become obsolete. I will be uploading material as it becomes available. Expect there to be updates. Version 1.0 of this project includes the following: 1. The original source materials that Black Hazor has collected. If you need 2D scans, the file you want is '___Original Source Material.7z.' Rather than make things confusing, future uploads of source material will be named as such: Missings (version number here). So if the current version of this project is 1.3, the file will be called Missings 1.3.7z. 2. The templates we are currently using. We are currently satisfied with the templates we have, but if they get updated, I will state such in future updates. 3. A set of photoshop .psd files with all of the PAL set from the current database, sized and snapped to guides, ready to be batched using photoshop actions. This file is called ___Batch PAL.7z. I considered putting instructions here on how to run batch actions to files, but decided against it. There are videos on youtube for that sort of thing. Both the layers are smart objects, meaning they can be resized and altered as much as you like, without losing quality. Thanks to JSinn for making me aware of this. The basic idea is, if someone even more finicky than myself wants to clean the scans for white specks and blemishes and whatnot, they can do so, then run a batch, and then the community will have an even better set. The spines had to be resized first prior to making them smart objects. Photoshop actions has no practical way to resize specific layers specific dimensions (which is what I really needed). It will let you enter in pixels instead of percentage (by specifying "1363px" for example), but when you go to run a batch, it will not respect that and use percentage instead. Lame. 4. The UHD PAL set from the database. Currently one game is missing. (you will need to make copies and rename multi disc games) __UHD PAL.7z is the file you want, if you came here for that. Missings List If you happen to own any of the games in this list, and are able to provide UHD scans (1360x1360 or better) for both the fronts and the backs, please upload the scan to the following thread: This list will be updated as I upload more materials, and with future updates.

  15. [OFFICIAL ] Sega Dreamcast XMLdatabase 6-7-2017 View File This is a combination of the official hyperlist xml, the 'official' thread that Tonesmalones and others contributed to, and work done by me. I'm trying to steer away from renaming 'ROM' names. It's a hassle for the entire community. At the end of the day the 'game name' or 'file name' is irrelevent, what displays in HyperSpin (currently, the description) is what matters. Big changes are coming with the way we do databases, but for now, I prefer to change the 'description' name only, unless the ROM name is particularly offensive to me (e.g. Sega Rally Championship 2 instead of Sega Rally 2: Sega Rally Championship. Also not that Tonesmalones made it a point to utilize semicolons in the descriptions. I agree with this, it looks more 'professional' like a movie title. Hyphens will still be used for games like Street Fighter 3: Third Strike - Fight for the Future, also in certain instances, like Resident Evil - Code: Veronica. What I'm trying to avoid is double instances of anything. It looks sloppy. Again, these changes are only in the description, the filenames will use hyphens for everything. I understand that the current consensus is to include 'everything playable,' even mahjong games that require you to navigate a Japanese menu to even play. I have mixed feelings on this. I didn't include stuff like this because I consider it culturally insignificant. If you take issue with this, speak up. But it's more work for everyone involved - it means someone has to make a 'Hentai Tentacle Master Gangbang Mahjong part 5' wheel, box art, video, etc. I have no desire for these kind of stuff in the official list, playable or not. Games that are either 'unplayable' or 'culturally insignificant' have been exported to an 'exclude' list. The idea is, you can easily merge the official list and the exclude list, to have every game if you so desire. This should please everyone. If you're mad that a game wasn't included, well, there's the exclude list. Feel free to add it yourself. If you believe there have been errors made, and some Japanese games belong in the main list, by all means, bring it to my attention, we'll make it happen. Games have been checked for publisher and rating accuracy. The list is certifiably 96% accurate, there me be minor updates as I continue to work on my 'Ultimate Sega Dreamcast' project. As always, if there are errors, feel free to bring them to my attention. We all want the same thing here - accurate data. Submitter SupraKarma Submitted 06/07/2017 Category Databases (XML) Credits

    Version 1.0.0

    I put a surprising amount of work into this, for as small as the actual game library is. But it's done, and worthy of the label 'Ultimate.' It's worth noting that this system has game themes for every single game, except Sangokushi IV. I wanted to include them somehow, but at the same time, I also liked my default theme quite a bit. So the way I handled it, and this involves some shenanigans and is complicated, is I made duplicate entries in the database, put a "1" in front of the game name, and disabled all of them. This is so that if you select a game from the "theme" wheel, the info like year, publisher, genre, etc. will still work with your RocketLauncher fades. What this means for you is, in order to have a functional "theme" wheel, you will need to copy all of your ROMs and put a 1 in front of the name. e.g., "NBA Jam Tournament Edition (World)" becomes "1NBA Jam Tournament Edition (World)". All of the media is already doubled up already as well, and I went ahead and included all the videos, so all you literally have to do is what I just described. In hindsight, it would have been more efficient to double up the game names as, e.g., "NBA Jam Tournament Edition (World) - copy", that way all you would have had to do was open up your ROMs directory, press control+A, control+C, control+V, and you'd be done. But whatever, it's done on my end already, and it won't hurt you to engage in some tediousness, I certainly have. After uploading everything I also decided that I hated the wheel for NBA Jam Tournament Edition (World). Note that is a separate upload. Just drag and drop it over your existing one if you like the new one better. This pack has full media for everything - box backs, fronts, 3D box, cartridge art, game wheel, publisher wheel, genre wheel, years, rating, and a few custom wheels, like 32X Exclusives, Two Players, and Multiplayer. I also fact checked every single field for the entire database, and made a number of changes for accuracy. Enjoy!

  23. Sega Dreamcast - 3D Box Pack 20170514 View File Credit goes to sercaljr for his set, I added about 79. My motivation for updating his work is, I wanted more 'authentic' looking artwork than the complete set that is floating around, e.g. actual jewel cases instead of generic boxes. However, this set is far from perfect. I didn't bother putting names on the sides of the Japanese games, because the jewel case templates I used are not authentic to begin with. No sense putting lots of work into making something inauthentic pretty. I did manage to find a good template for Euro games, but I only used them for 3 of the games that were missing. I didn't bother fact checking any of the existing games. So, I consider this an improvement if you want a complete set, with more authentic looking art. But I'm hoping someone else will step up and fix the Japanese and remaining Euro games (if any) for region, and we can have a truly authentic set. I spent a day on this, and I'm moving on to my main project. If you're a fan of my other work, yes, Ultimate Sega Dreamcast is coming soon, so you can download this now or get this, and all the other goodies when I release that project.

  24. Ultimate Sega Saturn

    Version 1.0.0

    I hope there's some Sega Saturn fans out there, because I really put some love into this one. If you are... this is the Sega Saturn setup you want, I promise you. Honestly at this point, just describing what this is, is probably the most exhausting part. If you don't know, you should check out my 'Ultimate Sega Genesis' pack for a better description. For those that *do* know, this is my most thorough one yet. Box backs, 2D box fronts, and 3D box artwork for every single game. I always try to do this if possible. Disc scans for all but 30 games. Full publisher wheels for every single publisher, all taken directly from the Sega Saturn era for authenticity. This pack also contains a custom database, using the *publisher* as the standard, and not the developer. I added 23 new games. Don't worry, they all have artwork and wheels. And, I even included videos for the new games, so you don't have to go hunting down any new media. All the typical genres you're expecting, e.g. Action, Adventure, etc. I'm not going to explain all of the custom wheels this time. If you know how to add 2+2, then it should all be self explanatory. Credit and thanks: Most of the artwork and wheels came from the community. I added some disc scans (located in artwork4), however, we're still missing 30 or so games. I actually resorted to photoshopping ebay images to get a few. That sucks, let me tell you. But...! I made them look decent, anyways. I turned to segaretro.com to fill in blanks, and for the new games I added to the database. It's a great site for researching anything Sega. Many thanks to them for not putting a crappy watermark on their images, like so many other sites of that nature do. All the publisher wheels and custom database wheels were done by me. It was a lot of work. I probably have a solid week in this. My hope is that this inspires someone to do something similar. A brief description of the new games added, and why they were added: 1. Akumajo Dracula X - Gekka no Yasokyoku (Japan) - This is the Japanese version of 'Castlevania - Symphony of the Night, and it has added features (2 new areas, new items, and the ability to play as Maria) that the PS1 version does not. It's worth checking out if you're a fan of the PS1 version. 2. Burning Fest. Limit Over. (Hack) (Japan) (Translated En) - This is a translated version of the hacked version of Asuka 120% Burning Fest Limited. The first of 8 fully playable translated games available on this platform, that were left out of the original database. 3. Daytona USA - CCE Netlink Edition (USA) - The Netlink version of Daytona USA - Championship Circuit Edition. Considered one of the rarest Sega Saturn games. I think of HyperSpin as a sort of 'digital Museum,' and no museum is complete without the rarest game. A database should not be about including only the most fun games, or leaving out duplicates. A database should be *complete*, and it should be up to the user to decide what to include or exclude. 4. Dragon Force II - Kami Sarishi Daichi ni (Japan) (Translated En) - The 2nd of 8 translations available. The description has the alternate title of 'Dragon Force II - The Godforsaken Land (Japan) (Translated En).' 5. Dungeon Master Nexus (Japan) - A Japanese RPG. It's in Japanese so you won't be able to play it unless you have a guide or can read the language. But, it's a Saturn exclusive. As far as I'm concerned, every Saturn Exclusive should be in the database as a matter of principal. This is gaming history here people. If you don't want unplayable games in your HyperSpin, don't add it. 6. Dungeons & Dragons Collection (Japan) (Disc 1 & 2) - Considered to be one of the best imports, contains 'Tower of Doom' and 'Shadow Over Mystara.' It's playable, even with the language barrier. 7. Final Fight Revenge (Japan) - A totally playable Japanese game. In fact, if you have your system settings set to 'English,' the game is totally in English. This game should have been in the original database for sure. 8. Grandia - Digital Museum (Japan) - Another Japanese RPG that you probably won't be able to play due to the language barrier, but again, a Sega Saturn Exclusive. There's no law that says you have to add every single game in the database. But if you're a completionist, and you love this system and it's history, it belongs in the database. 9. Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter (Japan) - Totally playable, the language barrier is practically a non issue. 10. Policenauts (Japan) (Translated) (Disc 1-3) - The sequel to Hideo Kojima's first game ever, 'Snatcher.' The 3rd of 8 translations. 11. Sega Rally Championship Plus - Netlink Edition (USA) - Supports the 3D control pad and has some bugfixes, and is considered the 'definitive version.' 12. Segata Sanshirou Shinken Yuugi (Japan) - A collection of mini games. Somewhat playable. A Sega Saturn Exclusive, starring the funny Japanese guy from the Sega Saturn commercials that aired in Japan. 13. Shining Force III - Premium Disc (Japan) (Translated En) - The 4th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. 14. Shining Force III - Scenario 1 (Japan) (Translated En) - The 5th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. The USA version was already in the database (Shining Force III (USA) ). I did not include the title following 'scenario 1' as it would make the display name ridiculously long, and wouldn't display properly on your HyperSpin. 15. Shining Force III - Scenario 2 (Japan) (Translated En) - The 6th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. We only got 'Scenario 1' in North America in the form of 'Shining Force III (USA).' 16. Shining Force III - Scenario 3 (Japan) (Translated En) - The 7th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. 17. Shinrei Jusatsushi Taromaru (Japan) - A Sega Saturn Exclusive. From Wikipedia: "The game has the distinction of being one of the Sega Saturn's rarest and most difficult games to obtain, mainly due in part to Time Warner Interactive ceasing operations after only 7,500 copies of it were manufactured. eBay auctions for the game can start for as high as $1,000." "Retro Gamer included it on their list of ten essential Saturn imports, described as "a delightfully nutty game that takes elements of Shinobi and Alisa Dragoon and marries them to insanely over-the-top action scenes that involve gigantic frogs and fantastic scaling and rotating effects. " 18. Shoujo Kakumei Utena - Itsuka Kakumei Sareru Monogatari (Japan) (Translated En) (Disc 1 & 2) - The 8th of 8 translations. Seems to be a graphic novel type game. 19. Virtual-On - Cyber Troopers - Netlink Edition (USA) - The Netlink Edition game of the same name. A two player online version. I'm not sure if that means anything to a gamer or not, perhaps an emulator can implement the feature somehow. 20. X-Men vs. Street Fighter (Japan) - The definitive version of my personal favorite in the Capcom 'Vs.' series. Puts the PS1 version to shame (which lacked several of the arcade features). This game is totally playable, language barrier is barely an issue (if at all). A few tips on making the translations work. I'm using the Mednafen emulator. It's the best. The Retroarch Mednafen Saturn core isn't as good, it doesn't have 3D Control Pad support working properly, and the Bios settings come up for every single game. That being said, you're still better off getting all your files in bin/cue format (which is what the RetroArch core uses). If you download a game in any other format, try mounting the disc image to a virtual drive (like Daemon tools lite), then open up ImgBurn, and convert the image to bin/cue. If you apply a translation patch, and the patch changes the format, follow the same process to get the game back to a cue and single bin file format. If a game gives you a 'disc read error' in the emulator itself, try this process also. If Imgburn gives you an error while trying to convert anything, you know you have a bad file.
  25. Ultimate Sega Saturn

    Ultimate Sega Saturn View File I hope there's some Sega Saturn fans out there, because I really put some love into this one. If you are... this is the Sega Saturn setup you want, I promise you. Honestly at this point, just describing what this is, is probably the most exhausting part. If you don't know, you should check out my 'Ultimate Sega Genesis' pack for a better description. For those that *do* know, this is my most thorough one yet. Box backs, 2D box fronts, and 3D box artwork for every single game. I always try to do this if possible. Disc scans for all but 30 games. Full publisher wheels for every single publisher, all taken directly from the Sega Saturn era for authenticity. This pack also contains a custom database, using the *publisher* as the standard, and not the developer. I added 23 new games. Don't worry, they all have artwork and wheels. And, I even included videos for the new games, so you don't have to go hunting down any new media. All the typical genres you're expecting, e.g. Action, Adventure, etc. I'm not going to explain all of the custom wheels this time. If you know how to add 2+2, then it should all be self explanatory. Credit and thanks: Most of the artwork and wheels came from the community. I added some disc scans (located in artwork4), however, we're still missing 30 or so games. I actually resorted to photoshopping ebay images to get a few. That sucks, let me tell you. But...! I made them look decent, anyways. I turned to segaretro.com to fill in blanks, and for the new games I added to the database. It's a great site for researching anything Sega. Many thanks to them for not putting a crappy watermark on their images, like so many other sites of that nature do. All the publisher wheels and custom database wheels were done by me. It was a lot of work. I probably have a solid week in this. My hope is that this inspires someone to do something similar. A brief description of the new games added, and why they were added: 1. Akumajo Dracula X - Gekka no Yasokyoku (Japan) - This is the Japanese version of 'Castlevania - Symphony of the Night, and it has added features (2 new areas, new items, and the ability to play as Maria) that the PS1 version does not. It's worth checking out if you're a fan of the PS1 version. 2. Burning Fest. Limit Over. (Hack) (Japan) (Translated En) - This is a translated version of the hacked version of Asuka 120% Burning Fest Limited. The first of 8 fully playable translated games available on this platform, that were left out of the original database. 3. Daytona USA - CCE Netlink Edition (USA) - The Netlink version of Daytona USA - Championship Circuit Edition. Considered one of the rarest Sega Saturn games. I think of HyperSpin as a sort of 'digital Museum,' and no museum is complete without the rarest game. A database should not be about including only the most fun games, or leaving out duplicates. A database should be *complete*, and it should be up to the user to decide what to include or exclude. 4. Dragon Force II - Kami Sarishi Daichi ni (Japan) (Translated En) - The 2nd of 8 translations available. The description has the alternate title of 'Dragon Force II - The Godforsaken Land (Japan) (Translated En).' 5. Dungeon Master Nexus (Japan) - A Japanese RPG. It's in Japanese so you won't be able to play it unless you have a guide or can read the language. But, it's a Saturn exclusive. As far as I'm concerned, every Saturn Exclusive should be in the database as a matter of principal. This is gaming history here people. If you don't want unplayable games in your HyperSpin, don't add it. 6. Dungeons & Dragons Collection (Japan) (Disc 1 & 2) - Considered to be one of the best imports, contains 'Tower of Doom' and 'Shadow Over Mystara.' It's playable, even with the language barrier. 7. Final Fight Revenge (Japan) - A totally playable Japanese game. In fact, if you have your system settings set to 'English,' the game is totally in English. This game should have been in the original database for sure. 8. Grandia - Digital Museum (Japan) - Another Japanese RPG that you probably won't be able to play due to the language barrier, but again, a Sega Saturn Exclusive. There's no law that says you have to add every single game in the database. But if you're a completionist, and you love this system and it's history, it belongs in the database. 9. Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter (Japan) - Totally playable, the language barrier is practically a non issue. 10. Policenauts (Japan) (Translated) (Disc 1-3) - The sequel to Hideo Kojima's first game ever, 'Snatcher.' The 3rd of 8 translations. 11. Sega Rally Championship Plus - Netlink Edition (USA) - Supports the 3D control pad and has some bugfixes, and is considered the 'definitive version.' 12. Segata Sanshirou Shinken Yuugi (Japan) - A collection of mini games. Somewhat playable. A Sega Saturn Exclusive, starring the funny Japanese guy from the Sega Saturn commercials that aired in Japan. 13. Shining Force III - Premium Disc (Japan) (Translated En) - The 4th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. 14. Shining Force III - Scenario 1 (Japan) (Translated En) - The 5th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. The USA version was already in the database (Shining Force III (USA) ). I did not include the title following 'scenario 1' as it would make the display name ridiculously long, and wouldn't display properly on your HyperSpin. 15. Shining Force III - Scenario 2 (Japan) (Translated En) - The 6th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. We only got 'Scenario 1' in North America in the form of 'Shining Force III (USA).' 16. Shining Force III - Scenario 3 (Japan) (Translated En) - The 7th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. 17. Shinrei Jusatsushi Taromaru (Japan) - A Sega Saturn Exclusive. From Wikipedia: "The game has the distinction of being one of the Sega Saturn's rarest and most difficult games to obtain, mainly due in part to Time Warner Interactive ceasing operations after only 7,500 copies of it were manufactured. eBay auctions for the game can start for as high as $1,000." "Retro Gamer included it on their list of ten essential Saturn imports, described as "a delightfully nutty game that takes elements of Shinobi and Alisa Dragoon and marries them to insanely over-the-top action scenes that involve gigantic frogs and fantastic scaling and rotating effects. " 18. Shoujo Kakumei Utena - Itsuka Kakumei Sareru Monogatari (Japan) (Translated En) (Disc 1 & 2) - The 8th of 8 translations. Seems to be a graphic novel type game. 19. Virtual-On - Cyber Troopers - Netlink Edition (USA) - The Netlink Edition game of the same name. A two player online version. I'm not sure if that means anything to a gamer or not, perhaps an emulator can implement the feature somehow. 20. X-Men vs. Street Fighter (Japan) - The definitive version of my personal favorite in the Capcom 'Vs.' series. Puts the PS1 version to shame (which lacked several of the arcade features). This game is totally playable, language barrier is barely an issue (if at all). A few tips on making the translations work. I'm using the Mednafen emulator. It's the best. The Retroarch Mednafen Saturn core isn't as good, it doesn't have 3D Control Pad support working properly, and the Bios settings come up for every single game. That being said, you're still better off getting all your files in bin/cue format (which is what the RetroArch core uses). If you download a game in any other format, try mounting the disc image to a virtual drive (like Daemon tools lite), then open up ImgBurn, and convert the image to bin/cue. If you apply a translation patch, and the patch changes the format, follow the same process to get the game back to a cue and single bin file format. If a game gives you a 'disc read error' in the emulator itself, try this process also. If Imgburn gives you an error while trying to convert anything, you know you have a bad file.
