Support / Retrode 2 not recognising N64 plugin
« Last post by RocknRollTim on 19/Aug/2018 04:21:19 PM »
Hi all,

I was wondering whether you could help. I am wanting to play my Goldeneye N64 cartridge using my Retrode 2 with the N64 plugin but is not showing up in Windows Explorer. Any ideas of what the problem could be? Also I have set the Retrode 2 to the 3.3V in order to play N64 cartridges. Your help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,

RocknRollTim

Pat1986 found a bug in FW v0.24a that broke support for Sega Genesis/Megadrive Sonic 3 & Knuckles.  The bug was related to the code changes that enabled reading Super Street Fighter 2.  I've fixed the bug and now both Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Super Street Fighter 2 work.

I've released a new firmware FW v0.25a with the fix:  http://www.mediafire.com/file/i2a1q7dft3f4135/Retrode-v0.25a.zip

Identified the setting that is messing up Sonic 3 & Knuckles.  An instruction was added to enable reading of SSF2.

I'll have to add some code to make sure both carts work with the same firmware.

EDIT:  Fixed.  Both Sonic 3 & Knuckles and SSF2 now work on the same firmware.  I'll compile a new v0.24 version with the fix and also merge the fix into the later firmwares.

Tested a Memory Pak and it reads out properly.  I compared the Mempak1.mpk dump against a dump using a different reader and the files matched.  I tested from the v0.18d (first firmware with memory pak support) up to v0.25.

Before attempting to read the memory pak, make sure your Config file [sramReadonly] or [saveReadonly] is set to 1.  Wannado mentions dumping your memory pak at least a couple times to confirm the contents before making any changes.

Refer to Wannado's Guide:  http://forum.retrode.org/index.php?topic=196.0

Yes, I tested Sonic 3 & Knuckles and it is broken in v0.24a.  The upper addresses are not completely dumped.

If you need to dump Sonic 3 & Knuckles, then use a firmware up to v0.24.

I'll look for a fix.

General Discussion / Re: Progress on N64/GBA save support?
« Last post by HamsterExAstris on 16/Aug/2018 02:35:42 AM »
The contributed code does not fully support all types of savegames yet. It's as far as the author got. There are still problems such as save data corruption. Some of the code changes might be breaking other features.
While the N64 save support has been released, GBA save support is still missing. Is that something you'd be willing to let someone else work on? If so, how would I go about getting involved?

Has the Lock-On for Sonic & Knuckles + Sonic 3 been broken in later firmwares? I'm on .24a and eventhough my Sonic & Knuckles (World) and Sonic 3 (Europe) dump flawlessly seperately, locked on i only get a rom with a broken looped boot screen.

Sonic & Knuckles + Sonic 1 and 2 locked on dump and play fine.
