Combine systems (minimize amount of systems)

  • Hi,

    I'd like to add cummulate games in each one folder/system as follows:

    Folder/system "megadrive":

    • Sega Megadrive games (.gen, .md,... files)
    • Sega Mega-CD games (.bin, . cue,... files)
    • Sega 32x games (.32x files)

    Folder/system "pcengine":

    • PC Engine games (.pce files)
    • PC Engine CD games (.bin, . cue,... files)
    • SuperGrafx games (.pce files)

    The reason I want to do this is that the theme I use needs too much RAM on Pi, if I activate too many systems. So I had to remove some systems to make ES running smoothly again.
    And as Mega-CD, 32x, PC Engine CD, etc. are only addons of main consoles, my idea was to cummulate them in these 2 "main systems" written above and solve the problem this way.

    It seems that emulator is the same for both systems and its sub-systems (add-ons), but I guess my plan won't work without any modification? Just tried SuperGrafx yet because of same file extension - this seems to work in folder "pcegine" though!

    Thanks for your help!

    You can already add pcenginecd and supergrafx games to pcengine roms folder, they'll work as well. For sega games you'll need to edit es_system, i guess you'll have to set picodrive as core and add rom extensions for segacd/sega32.

  • @myst Seems you always have a solution 🙂 Works perfectly!
    Core didn't have to be changed for segacd/sega32, just had to add extensions.
    Thank you!
