A new FW for GDEMU is now available, get it in the UPDATING FIRMWARE section. The changelog might not reflect that but there are many internal changes, most of the code is now shared with Rhea – this will save me some work in future.
I didn’t have time to test it as well as I would like so just in case I left a link to 5.7.0 in the changelog (should anyone need to downgrade).
Folder limit is now set to 9999, but to avoid having to rename everything it works like this:
- for 1-9 put 0 in front to make it 01-09 (*)
- for 10-99 use 2 digits (*)
- for 100-999 use 3 digits
- for 1000+ use 4 digits
(*) – same as it was until now
Simple, right? There is no folder prescan anymore so you can’t have gaps in numbering. Also, DOWN key (for those that have it) will now stop at 1 instead of wrapping around to the highest available image. The official maximum SD card size is still 32GB, so don’t bother me with reports of anything bigger not working right. You will be ignored.
SD high speed mode is an experimental feature. While it does double the card transfer rate, that alone has little impact on Dreamcast games – most will be limited by their own internal processing anyway. It will not work well, if at all, with extenders, and not all cards will behave properly – therefore it’s disabled by default. It’s mostly for people with problematic Class 10 cards, might just make them work. Do not report issues with high speed mode enabled.
EDIT: Seems I broke the button API needed by menu software, sorry for that. 5.8.1 is up and should have it fixed.
