Support / Re: Mega Drive Dump Failed - Bad ROM
« Last post by ssokolow on 20/Jan/2020 01:55:13 AM »
I cleaned again but the result is the same :(

The forcesystem and forcesize configuration is ok, i increase the size and the rom change from 2mb to 4mb or 6mb (depending on how much i put it)

Other ideas to test?

What version of the firmware are you running? There has been some development which touched the Genesis/MD stuff and I can't remember if/when it's been released beyond betas. (I have almost no Genesis carts, so I was only concerned with beta-testing the SNES enhanced dumping adapter and the N64 save-dumping support.)

I've had enough early dumps which at first appeared fine and after some play discovered they were not - that now I pull the board out of each cartridge, fully clean with 99% alchol, polish with a white high poly eraser, dry, reassemble and only then dump.  No more issues with dumps that have corruption. .

I check all my dumps against DAT-o-MATIC, so I've never had that problem. The high poly eraser only comes out if the initial alcohol swabbing wasn't enough to get a hash-verifiable dump.

(Specifically, ucon64 -rdat ROMNAME after loading the relevant datfiles into ucon64. I can't remember whether I needed DatUtil to get them into the right format or not.)

Did you clean the cartridge's contacts? The Retrode is more susceptible to signal noise from dirty contacts.

(In one particularly stubborn case, I had to scrub a Genesis cartridge's contacts with cotton swabs dipped in 99% Isopropyl Alcohol and with one of those white vinyl erasers before it would read cleanly.)

Also, can you confirm that you set forceSystem correctly when you set forceSize? The latter is ignored if the former is left on auto.

Support / Mega Drive Dump Failed - Bad ROM

Hi everyone!

I have a problem, I tried to Dump my game "Futbol Argentino 96" but the Rom seems incomplete.
This game is a hack from J-league Pro Striker 2. The game see like this: https://youtu.be/8ElykXlpuyI and it should see like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZmCDfhRlZA.
In my Genesis, the cartridge works Perfect. Any Ideas to resolve this problem?.

More data:
- I Tested the Rom with diferents Emulators, but it doesn't work fine.
- Also tried to Force Size to 3, 4 and 6 MB, but the result is the same.
- I dumped another games and the roms work perfect
- This game never was dumped, only the original.

Support / Re: Using the Retrode2 with a 32X and a 32X game

Hope there's nothing wrong with bumping my own topic here.

Anyway, I got a nice chunk of Christmas money today, and I am planning to use some of it to buy a 32X and at least one game (I'm gonna definitely buy Knuckles Chaotix, and I might buy Virtua Racing Deluxe too).  I'm most likely going to go with Wannado's suggestion of connecting a 32X and game to the Retrode2 before connecting the whole thing to a computer (thanks for that suggestion Wannado; if I do that, I'll be sure to disconnect the Retrode2 from my computer before I disconnect a 32X from it), though there is something I wish to ask, does anyone have at least one picture of a Retrode2 with a 32X in the Sega Genesis slot?  It would be nice to see what the whole setup looks like before I get a 32X.

Thanks again.

Edit: No need for any pictures of the Retrode2/32X setup now, as I noticed it was surprisingly easy to connect my new 32X to my Retrode2.  I might as well close my topic then (been ages since I did this, lol).

Which is exactly what a console should do, no? :-D

A windows rom scanning service would be fantastic. At first I did try to make that work using Task Scheduler and event triggers to detect certain hardware events from the Retrode itself, which did work, but had side effects that I would have needed to figure out.  For instance, every time the computer restarted the game would automatically start playing.

Nice! For even more convenience, it would be awesome to have some endless loop running in the background (launched at system start) that watches the Retrode, and everytime a ROM file pops up it launches the emulator...
