ios Version of Reicast (Apple devices)

Post by brand175 » Sat May 05, 2018 12:28 am

This doesn't require a jailbreak. Currently in early alpha and is extremely experimental. A Dreamcast BIOS is required in order for it to play.

Ahh... You finally made it here. What do you have to say about the iOS version of Reicast.

A trigger fix for the MFi controller. This time the triggers are where they should be and the only thing is to add the touchscreen control triggers and a joystick.

Hey how do you get this to work, I’m jail broken using Electra on iOS 11, I realise this doesn’t need jailbreak but no matter what I do I cannot get the app to do anything, I’ve put the data file in the documents folder for the app using iTunes, I’ve tried putting the data folder with the bios files in it basically everywhere I reckon it might need to go but no matter what the app shows nothing, I’ve got games in there too, is this not quite ready for general users? Do I need extra knowledge to get it to work or is something wrong? I’ve tried this on iOS 11.1 and 11.1.2 on an iPhone 6s+ and iPhone 7+, I’d love to test this app out and I’ve been waiting so long for Reicast on iOS so I’d love to know what to do in order to start playing, thanks.

Edit: Okay so I realise now the game files have to be sitting just plain inside the Documents folder, I at least assume that, anyway, the app seems to freeze when I try to play anything.

Edit 2: Alright, I see the bios needed to just be sitting in the Documents folder as well.
I tried Sonic Adventure 2 and of course the speed fluncuated a ton but it’s so good to see iOS finally getting Dreamcast support.
I used an iPad Air 2 on 10.3.1 with a PlayStation 3 controller using Controllers4All, didn’t notice any problems outside of those already mentioned on the github page.

Is it possible to merge this work to the main reicast project please? You can open an issue for coordination in https://github.com/reicast/reicast-emulator/issues. Thanks!

It was generally turned with all of those documents down
