Dreamcast Rom folder
« on: January 29, 2018, 12:51:13 pm »
I need to unzip the Dreamcast set I have. Problem is when I unzip I have the image file with a couple of files that are named "track 1 track 2" etc. So I can't unzip them all in 1 folder but it needs to be. How can I get all these in 1 folder so hyperspin will work right?

Can I just leave them zipped?

Why do all the games need to be unzipped into the same folder? Does Hyperspin insist on this? I find that hard to believe, but if so, then this should work for you: Unzip one game zip file. Rename the .bin and .raw files so that the names include some game-specific identifier, but make sure to note what their original names were. Open the .gdi file in a text editor and replace the instances of the original file names with the new file names. Save the .gdi file and the game should still work by running the gdi file, and now you can keep adding multiple Dreamcast games to this same folder by following these steps for each game.

I'm pretty sure no Dreamcast emulator supports keeping your game files zipped.

Your idea should work. Yes you can leave them zipped. It just takes long to open. I will test you idea this weekend
