I was wondering which games this emu supports. Also I used Piony's scrambler which converted the elf file to 1ST-READ_bin but was wondering how or where to get the IP_bin for it.

for the emulator I've been waiting 2 years for.

Thanks to Reaper2k2 also for showing interest into WSC emulation.

Do NOT use the ip.bin from DreamSNES unless you want to make a coaster - the DreamSNES ip.bin points towards a file called 1dsnes.sh4 *NOT* 1st_read.bin.

Bad help is worse than no help at all :?

Nester, SMEG, DCDivX, almost all non WinCE programs will have an ip.bin pointing to 1st_read.bin, which is what you need - just download whichevers smallest if I were you

I repeat: DreamSNES's ip.bin *will not work*

I'm new to this, and just want to make sure I understand what to do here:

* I want to run MAME on my Dreamcast.

* I downloaded the plain files CPMAME, and the Piony's scrambler.

* I used the scrambler program and converted the .elf to a .bin.

* I then burned the .bin to a CD. On the same CD, I burned a directory called samples, and a directory called ROMS, along with the samples and roms in the respective directories.

* I then boot the DC with Utopia 1.1, and once it's loaded I put in my burned CPMAME cd.

* The LOADING message appears and counts to 98%, and never goes any further.

Based on what I've read, I think I need to find an IP.BIN file, and burn it to the CD as well. Is that correct?

Thanks,
Steve
