Loading dreamcast games with reicast

Recommended Posts

I got games to show on wheel and when you click on game it takes you to reicast boot and I so game list. How do you get it to load the game without having to go thru recast boot page?

Need new nightly build.  The build on the store doesn't launch games.   Be sure you can load/run games from Reicast alone.  Then it should work in Hyperspin.

I can run games now on store build but I had to extract games have to find nightly build. How can you get android to find subfolders if you have japan games with track files?

I got the same problem on reicast. It will load a game but everytime, i try to launch a game through hyperspin, it takes me to the games list and i have to choose it from there. I have tried to install a nightly build of the emulator on my shield tablet but i get an error message "app not installed".

I havent loaded nightly build yet but if you do I think you need to delete old build first. That happened to me with retroarch. No quote me on that wait for others with experience to chime in

I downloaded the top apk and it loads games straight from hyperspin but I have no start button or menu configs. What's up with that?

You need to setup the bios folder and controls in the emulator (before messing with Hyperspin)

I already had bios folder in system. So when I downloaded build I set bios path first then rom path. Where's controls? What's weird I only have one reicast page before I had input, browser, about, ect.

those menu options are hiding in the small hamburger menu button on the top left.  Its a little finicky to get to with the controller but it works.

Screw this nightly build. I have to use stupid mouse because controller stops at game. I tried forever to get it to recognize bios which it won't. Piss on this emu. I'll wait for retroarch to get it

Use the buiild I told you to use and and you'll be able to get to the settings with the controller, and point it to the folder containing the folder labeled (data) which should be the one containing your bios, don't point it inside the (data) folder!!! So (/storage/emulated/0/dc) in my case, and not /storage/emulated/0/dc/data) :) Don't know if there's away not to have to put the date and time in everytime, if anyone knows, please tell because it really bugs me :/

I think it only support's .chd up to (v4) format, I personally would stick to .gdi ROMs there the most stable :)
