PC Engine Arcade Card games



  • I can not get arcade card games to run on 4.0.0 beta 4.  I tried this with sapphire and with strider.  Sapphire ran on my pi B with version 4.0.0 beta 3, but when I upgraded to a pi 3, beta 4 was out.  Both games look like they are going to start to boot, on strider I get nec presents, and on sapphire I get the loading screen for a brief second, and then it boots me back to emulation station.  Non arcade card cd games work perfect, so I do have the correct syscard3 bios.  Is there something I need to do or is this a bug in beta 4?



  • i can't remember which cores we have for PCE, but have you tried all of them ?



  • Yes, I tried both cores and neither will boot the games.

    Can you check the cue file , lowcase for name of game exemple my iso rom : Ginga_Fukei_Densetsu_-Sapphire(NTSC-J)_[HCD5080].iso in my cue file : FILE "Ginga_Fukei_Densetsu_-_Sapphire_(NTSC-J)_[HCD5080].ISO BINARY Modified in : FILE "Ginga_Fukei_Densetsu_-_Sapphire_(NTSC-J)_[HCD5080].iso BINARY All my games ISO+CUE work fine.

  • Evidently I cannot post a picture on here showing what I have, so I will do my best to show in words. First, I renamed my .iso file Sapphire This was done so that I don't have to change all the words in the .cue file. My cue File has FILE "Sapphire.iso" BINARY as the first line.

    @metzger130 you can post a picture here (obviously) by uploading it to, i.e. postimage, selecting the image icon here and pasting the direct link you got.

  • This is what I have. Does anyone see something wrong?

  • @metzger130 Yes. I see something wrong. ^^

    Please call the cue file Sapphire.cue and the ISO Sapphire.iso (or whatever, but give them both the same name). Inside the CUE File, everything is ok.

    here's how I did it

    and it's working like a charm.



  • As I suspected, did not help. I get the CD rom boot screen and press the run button. I see the "loading" for 1/2 a second and then goes back to emulation station.

    Arf i have look the wrong screenshot.
    2nd screenshot is ok
    Try with lowcase
    All files with name sapphire.iso sapphire.cue etc....
    Very strange this game works fine in my recalbox.

    Do you use usb key storage or microsd card for your roms ?



  • micro sd card. I am trying a different way though. I have been trying to put it on via the windows network... I'm trying win scp. Don't know why it would make a difference but worth a try I guess. Just out of curiosity you are using most recent version correct?

    I think a corruption of folder pcenginecd. I dont think it s a bug.
    If you used usb key for your rom , I have advised you to reinstall recalbox 4beta4
    In ssh , type dmesg command line and copy paste result in pastebin.com
    Give me link in your reply.





  • Hope someone can help me with this, I'm out of options. I made an image of the card, formatted it and put a fresh install on, doesn't work. Put the image back on so I have all my games and took the bios out and put the bios that works on my pi on it, doesn't work. Last I took the sapphire image that works on my pi and put it on the pi 3, doesn't work. any other ideas? Only thing I can think of is it has to be something with the pi3.



  • @metzger130 Can't be te Pi3. I'm running the game just fine on my Pi3. Just for the sake of completeness, please tell us the MD5 and the name of your PCENGINE Bios as they are on your Pi.

    On a side note. In which folder do you have the game on your Pi?

    Do you use this image to reinstall your recalbox ?
    You need a fresh install not a reinstall from an image that can be corrupted.
