I though I should explain that you can prevent Dreamcast from auto-booting GD images the moment you select them by changing the appropriate option in Dreamcast settings menu. There are two choices there, ON and OFF:
- ON will make the console boot the disc as soon as it detects it, which can be annoying if you have more than one on your SD card. AFAIK this only affects GD-ROM images and not CD-ROM ones.
- OFF will require that you manually select the controller icon to boot the game once the disc is recognized, which is probably more in line with what most people would want.
The default setting for Dreamcast is ON, and keep in mind that even set to OFF it will boot the disc it finds at power-on. So to avoid that leave folder 01 empty, as it is explained in Operation section.
I am still waiting for the pads to arrive. Got some but not all I need to stack them to correct height. I realize this looks very unprofessional but this particular delay is really not my fault, it’s all very Apollo 13 like at this point. That means shipping of the latest GDEMU units will probably happen on this Saturday and not earlier. On the bright side I am making sure this particular problem will not happen again with the next batch.
