Ok, usual rules, post here any Sega Saturn screenshots and/or bug reports. We'll evenutally put all the info gathered there into a proper wiki page at some point.

DISCLAIMER: me and Arbee accepts only valid bug reports, i.e. try to limitate bug reports for games that doesn't surpass the Sega Saturn -> licensed by Sega logo screens, it means that the disc recognition failed hence your CD image is likely to be badly ripped

Shows this screen, trying to select an option ends up in either a tight loop or an assert without log. I don't know what this screen means either ...


AI Shougi

Boots to title screen with music, then fades to black and nothing happens.
I was also unable to press start at the title screen.

I tried running Saturn with the games "Tenchi Muyo gokuraku" and "Neon Genesis Evangelion".

However, running "mess saturnjp -cdrm xyz.chd" immediately drops me back to the command line with
Code:
ERROR: root directory too big (67584)


Since it happens with both games, I guess it has something to do with how I created these CHDs. What's the best way to do that? I ripped to bin+cue but that's obviously not working right...
The output of chdman is here:
Code:
G:\Sega Saturn>d:\devel\mess\chdman -createcd neon_genesis_evangelion.cue nge.chd
chdman - MAME Compressed Hunks of Data (CHD) manager 0.142u4 (May 27 2011)

trk 2: 251553 frames @ offset 11647104

trk 4: 11493 frames @ offset 605063760
trk 5: 965 frames @ offset 632095296

CD-ROM neon_genesis_evangelion.cue has 5 tracks and 269713 total frames

Track 05/05 (neon_genesis_evangelion.bin:632095296,965 frames,242 hunks,swap 1,pregap 450,postgap 0)
Compression complete ... final ratio = 21%

G:\Sega Saturn>


if I try it with a Nero raw image (*.nrg) I get:
Code:
chdman - MAME Compressed Hunks of Data (CHD) manager 0.142u4 (May 27 2011)
ERROR: Unknown track type 64, contact MAMEDEV!

CD-ROM nge.nrg has 1 tracks and 0 total frames
Error creating CHD file: invalid parameter


Any ideas?

You are ripping and converting them exactly perfectly as far as the bin/cue version, that message is due to the CD emulation being awful.

Obviously in the nrg case the chd that gets written out will be garbage because we don't support whatever that track type is.

OK, after editing stvcd.c and changing MAX_DIR_SIZE, I don't get that error anymore. However, both games still don't run.

Tenchi Muyo hangs on a black screen after the copyright mesasge, and Neon Genesis Evangelion doesn't even start, no matter what BIOS I chose (0 or 1), although BIOS 0 gives me the CD player and BIOS 1 hangs on the "Saturn" startup screen.

I'll see what other Saturn games I find around here...

Edit: okay, none of my Saturn games work frown I guess I'll go grab a few more next time I'm in Akihabara... Until then I'll just be patient and watch the nice screenshots here smile

The region counts for Saturn, unlike PSX - you must run Japan games on the saturnjp driver, for instance.
