Default Dreamcast (Reicast) Compatibility List/Troubleshooting (MAR 12 2014) *ALL DEVICES

*Due to certain users intentionally or unintentionally deleting and messing with spreadsheet I was forced to create the official and unofficial spreadsheets this way people can still add, but it's in a controlled environment. I was hoping to avoid this since it means more work on my part, and less frequent updates (at least until some users are added to be able to edit official).

Google Play Emulator Link

R6 Beta - Courtesy of hooby3dfx

Latest Compiled Beta Builds *Courtesy of ricardo85x
Download Here

For Bios:
Simple copy the files dc_boot.bin and dc_flash.bin (I also placed dc_flash_wb.bin just in case) into "This PC\SHIELD\Internal storage\dc\data"
*Please note that the bios must be placed in the internal Storage not the SDCard like the instructions original state

For Memory Card:
You must use R6 Beta (as far as I can see you can try r5).
First go into the bios (so the system menu), format the memory card in the first slot and set it up. Once done, you should now be able to save games.

Recommendations
-Try converting GDI to CHD, saves a lot of space on disk (use program Here Windows) Thanks to ricardo85x

How I mapped the controller using Nvidia's built in mapper
Also note that I used Right bumper to map the start button, for me only because the other buttons on the Nvidia shield have other tasks, and the play button cannot be used.

Rules/Guidelines For Editing Spreadsheet/Compatibility

 
1. All users and none users are welcome to alter the Spreadsheet.

2. If you do not know how to put everything in alphabetical order, simply leave 1 row empty below the list and type them there.

3. If you are using a device other than the Nvidia Shield please look for it's name among the spread sheets. If it's not there simply add a new sheet with your device's name on it. If you don't know how simply write it in forum or somewhere on spreadsheet out of the way and myself or someone else will place it where it should be.

4. All headings must be filled in with exception of Screenshot.

5. This one is not really a rule, more of a courtesy. Hit the Thanks Button for the users you see contributing. It shows you appreciate their efforts and dedication.

6. Will update more later


7. PM me to get access to official Spreadsheet, I might not see it in forum.

Emulator seems to map controls now and San Fransisco Rush 2049 seems to be running as perfect as I can tell at the moment if you want to add that to your list.
Moto G (Stock 4.4)
Huawei Fusion II (CM7)
Nvidia Shield (Stock 4.3)

Soul Reaver - almost perfect(I can't remember any problem )
Skies Of Arcadia - Plays great, almost no graphics issues.



It is look like the Revision 6 will fix the problem with Shenmue 1.

I also recomend to use GDI or CHD.

You can convert GDI to CHD(to save a lot of space on disk) with this app for windows:

Without doing any mapping on my own the left stick, a/b/x/y buttons, and l/r trigger worked out of the box.
I only noticed today that the dpad did not work, so i added that to the mapping. Sucks that using that will make the on-screen touch input overlay show up.

Does anyone know what the menu buttons do (when you press back)? I can tell that the left most quits.
Too bad you cant map the shield start button.

My compatibility notes:
-MDK2 - fantastic except for sniper mode, there is a gfx glitch that is drawing the floor in front of the view.
-Powerstone - perfect, minor gfx glitches
-Virtua Tennis - perfect, minor gfx glitches
-Rez - perfect, minor gfx glitches
-Street Fighter 3 Third Strike - playable but heavy gfx glitches with the 2D sprite animations
-Ooga Booga - can hear music but black screen
-Star Wars Episode 1 Racer - starts up fine but crashes at menu when you press start button

Havent been able to get to boot:
-Sega Bass Fishing
-Dynamite Cop
-Half-life/Blue shift

How do you know when the next reicast update is coming out?

OK - I'm finding a lot of 'news' on the emulator by looking at the github repo.
Dpad fix is coming soon:
github.com/reicast/reicast-emulator/commit/eedb4ac233d31ed38045e5e88672590f86bf9dff

I logged issues for MDK2 as well as one to make an official compatibility wiki!

The link of GDI TO CHD is dead
you can use this:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/pk...GDI+to+CHD.rar


compatibility:
Record of LODOS WAR now is working with beta apk, there was a bug in r5 where the game hangs after you hit a enemy.
