    i have tried with Winter Games (2 disc games) but that doesn't work.
    i start the game from recalbox, while the game is loading, i activate the Vice GUI.
    i select "attach to fliplist", i select Winter Games side B file in DF8, i press "resume".
    the emulator restart. i activate again the Vice GUI. The "attach to fliplist" check button is still selected. I select Winter Games side A file in DF8 and i press "resume".
    The emulator restart. I write load"*",8,1 and i press return but the message "file is not found" is displayed.

    Do you think i made a mistake ?



  • @chacs
    I just tried it and it works.
    disc1 -> "winter games disc1"
    disc2 -> "winter games disc2"

    Sorry, I could not replicate the problem
    With other games, "file is not found" error message appears when the disk type is incorrect.

    That works ! i used zip file instead of d64 file. Thank you for your help 🙂

    Do you think there is a way to create once the fliplist to avoid reselecting it each time before playing a game ?



  • @chacs

    I happy that it works.
    I tried to save the settings, but I could not.

    I hope the next version supports multi-disc zip



  • THAAAANKS a lot ! 🙂



  • With recalbox 6 it is easier to solve using m3u files.

    h

    So how exactly is this supposed to work with m3u? could you please post an example ?



  • @giubbe-de-giubbix Let's say with "Pirates".

    Pirates! (Disk1).D64
    Pirates! (Disk2).D64

    Pirates!.m3u
    (containing to lines with
    Pirates! (Disk1).D64
    Pirates! (Disk2).D64)

    Is this supposed to appear in the gameslist.xml?



  • @twh_pi
    You have to do a manual search for the name m3u. Then hide the games Pirates! (Disk1).D64 e Pirates! (Disk2).D64
