I can not get the script to work is there a link to the correct bios roms? I have the syscard and cd rom files for Magic Engine but I renamed them and put them in my mednafen folder and it doesn't load any of the games in my TG CD Gamebase.

Nope still not working, I really don't think it's script related these two Gamebases used another program to decompress the files and whilst my PC-FX Gamebase is still doing it, the PC Engine CD one is not.[/img]

looking at the setup you posted, you have this as a script.

Add_CLP(%gamepathfile%)
Run_Program(%gamepath%\prep.bat||||WAIT)
Run_Emulator()

the prep.bat will probably be doing the same as the script i posted.
using the command line function.

it will have the location of the emulator and bios included.
if you moved, renamed the directory, or updated the emulator to latest version, it will need editing to fix the new location.

the script i posted works ok.
just link the CUE file in the game zip (no need for the batch file).

Think it's might be the fact the games that come with the Gamebase the soundfiles are in .ogg format.

Will download another game without the .ogg files and try your script .Mad

Yes that's done it (as well as taking the bios files out of the bios folder and just placing them in same directory as Mednafen).

The obvious problem with this is i'm going to have to either convert all my games or download them again.

the cue file should have the OGG files listed, so it should work.
have you tried attaching the CUE file to a Virtual CD Drive, and booting that with the emulator.

the 99% set on UG is golden.
so free to download on Golden Torrent weekends.
Christmas, New Year, Easter....
That's how i managed to get most of mine.
It did take a few years though.
Best to download selected files, rather than go for the whole thing.
as 130GB is a ratio breaker. :)

Other sites have images to download, but that set is verified and well tested. :wink:

The PC-FX is a totally different machine to the PCE-CD.

The PCE-CD is a addon CD drive for the PC Engine.

The PC-FX was the followup machine.

The Battery Shark account seems to have been deleted from UG, due to inactivity, along with the PCE-CD Gamebase. :cry:

this script will work with mednafen.

Add_CLP(-loadcd pce -pce.cdbios syscard3J.pce "%gamepathfile%")
End If

Run_Emulator()
just needs the BIOS files in the mednafen emulator dir, with these names.

syscard1J.pce
syscard2J.pce
syscard3J.pce
syscard2U.pce
syscard3U.pce
gamesexpress.pce


The GameBase will work also with MagicEngine with a virtual drive and daemon tools command line.
I had to take out the quotes around %gamepathfile% for it to work as the filepath was getting double-quoted.

Your talking 60Gb for them both Ox, are you a member of UG ?

That's where I downloaded the Gamebases from, if not will have to find another way of getting them to you :)

Here I have torrented them, will try and keep it running as long as reasonable, can't promise it will be 24/7 but will try to keep it as often as possible.
