Hi! im new to emulating on dreamcast, and cant seem to get it right :( . So my attempt with dreamsnes kinda worked or somethin... :? . anyway i load in the emulator music plays and pumpkins fall, and all. Butt! when i take out the emulator to put in a roms cd, it loads but takes half an hour to do so. There 650 roms on the cd and i have the roms.lst. and i also didnt finalize the disc (if that would affect anything).

oh and when the list does load, names show up perfectly, sound sometimes works, and the games load (well atleast the 1 i tested (battletoads))

I am not sure if finalizing the disc would affect anything but it would be worth a try.

To me it seems your ROMS.LST isn't recognized properly as loading the ROM list should take only a second or two at best.

Which method did you use to create your ROMS.LST ?

Haven't used DreamSnes in a decade but I remember it took forever for the rom list to load...

I think loading roms from an SD would be exponentially faster.

Only if you forgot to add your ROMS.LST file, or made a mistake when creating the file.

I lived in Pakistan brah, I would purchase my copy of professionally pressed DreamSnes volumes...

The only game I was able to burn myself was Propeller Arena, but we can't really go into details of that as per forum rules.
