Recalbox 7.0

Dreamcast Emulation not working at all



  • Good Evening,

    I wonder if anyone may be able to help at all, I scoured what seems like an endless list of threads and forums but am seemingly no closer to finding a solution.
    I'm using recalbox installed on a PC, and all emulators are working perfectly except the Dreamcast on (Reicast). I understand that Dreamcast emulation is far from perfect but I can't get it to load any roms at all. Everytime I select a rom, the screen goes dark and then after a second or two I get returned to the Menu.

    Any ideas where I could start troubleshooting this? I've tried multiple dc_flash.bin files but get the same issue each time. I have 28 roms and have tried them all but get the same issue so I don't think it's the roms at fault.

    Any guidance at all would be massively appreciated, and if I need to provide more info (which I guess I will) then please let me know.

    Thanks in advance.
