Re: Official DCIO News and Development Thread

PS1 had so many board revisions, doing a drive replacement could be messy. As for the Dreamcast, as with any system, you have to consider the bandwidth (transfer rate) for each interface. The serial port on the back is 2mbps ~ 0.25 MB/s, which as we saw with the SD Card Adapters, does work, but it's...

Re: Scumbag on eBay selling PSIO firmware files

People who buy these counterfeits fall into two categories. a) they buy it because it's cheaper and in the case of GDEMU, available. they try to update the firmware and brick it, then play dumb and whine about it on forums like this. b) they buy it for the same reasons, never update anything, and ju...

Re: Mega CD

No it's only emulating the cartridge mappers. The FPGA emulates the CD's 68000 chip in hardware. Also emulates the Master System FM core.

Re: Scumbag on eBay selling PSIO firmware files

Chinese eventually crack everything. They've cloned most of the Everdrive, and the GDEMU, and more. The few they didn't, like the infamous USB-GDROM, is simply because that guy is using OEM chips from the GD drive.

Re: Mega CD

Virtua Racing (Genesis) now runs, so they have 100% compatibility on 16-bit games. 32X CD games will eventually be possibly once they produce a slot adapter to be able to plug the cartridge into the expansion slot on the side. I'm an OEM original hardware guy through and through, but I draw the line...

Re: Mega CD

They have a ton of R&D into this product, so it's going to be priced accordingly. Plus it will be a full retail product with professional box and whatnot. They're also I believe licensing a X68000 FPGA core to mimic the original CD CPU, not sure how cheap that is. As for the Ever Drive, Krikzz has s...

Re: Official DCIO News and Development Thread

Well, both USBGDROM and GDEMU are difficult to procure, and both use FAT32 so memory card size is hampered.

Re: Official PSIO News and Development Thread

Just chiming back in on the menu speed front....Most flash carts for inferior systems aren't reading anything like a database. Such as Everdrives, which are simply reading filenames and folders and that's it. Perhaps there could be an option to turn that feature off, if say you want to use the ever ...

How many seconds as soon as the "Initialise" screen comes up until the Menu System has the list of games showing?
PSIO only for 4 secs.
PSIO Initialising for 8 secs.
PSIO with bar for 6 secs.

Re: Official PSIO News and Development Thread

One query I had, seems PSIO is taking a lot longer to "Initialise" and then load (progress bar). I'm having to wait what feels like an eternity after holding reset, to return to the menu. I don't even have that many games on this SD card.

Re: Official PSIO News and Development Thread

So I was still getting the "High Fragmentation" error on Crash Bandicoot 2. I formatted the SD Card so it's not fragmented, even tried another one. This was not a problem prior to updating menu/firmware recently. I wound up downloading a different dump, and it now worked. However, I tried Spyro 3 Ye...

Re: Compatibility with 1001 unit?

I actually went with the SCPH-7501 a few years ago, because it was the smallest MB revision that still had the parallel port. Made it much cheaper (literally HALF the size of older ones) to ship to Australia for the switchboard installation!

Re: Official PSIO News and Development Thread

So what's the latest on the "High Fragmentation" error? Updated my PSIO for the first time in like 2 years, and some games don't run, such as Crash Bandicoot 2.

Re: Mega CD

Nope. Never received a Mega CD so prototype work on it never started. D'OH! Wish I had one to send, but I do not. One issue you may have though is that the CD had tons of hardware revisions internally that people don't realize. I'm afraid the only sensible method would be something ilke the SSD3 fr...

Hmmm, very handy toolset it sounds like. Anyone willing to make a how-to video on YouTube for the dolts like me? :)

Re: Official DCIO News and Development Thread

GDEMU (and RHEA/PHOEBE) production remain absurdly slow/low. Deunen's work was bootlegged in China specifically because he has refused any sort of 3rd party mass production, which still boggles the mind. The 3rd party menu was designed and is okay, but the originator I heard has gone AWOL. Frankly, ...

Correct. We are now partnered with Stone Age Gamer :mrgreen:
As a fan of their site, that's awesome. Will they just be selling your finished product as is, and how would the jumper board installation work?

Re: Let's talk about the PocketStation
