Dreamcast dc_boot dc_flash - secondd - 10-08-2018

I have a retrostone, cannot figure out where to put the dc_boot.bin (renamed from DC_BIOS.BIN) and dc_flash.bin??? (I have installed Shenmue in rom but the dreamcast sais it cannot find the bios files)


2. I assume I only need the "region free" versions as per this article: https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Dreamcast

create a 'dc' folder in ~/RetroPie/BIOS and copy bioses into it

Did that, games do not boot (can't see the error it jumps out, tried shenmue). Also now when I launch retrostone I arrive at this screen always (so moving BIOS files has broken somthing, I have tried twice, after moving the BIOS files I arrive at this screen when booting retrostone).

Here is the screen:

Tried "other" dc_boot.bin and dc_flash.bin I found (smaller in size). Now Sonic Adventure boots, had to use this tutorial:
http://forum.8bcraft.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1771#p3307

-> Create new file ???.cfg with the contents mentioned in the post and move it to "/opt/retropie/configs/dreamcast/mapping"

Problems:
- Cannot save -> have to go through date setup each time
- Cannot get past menu in Shenmue 1 (cannot hit "start new game") - so the controller setup is still not correct
- Cannot start certain games at all (like Shenmue 2) just quits after Dreamcast-Logo. Why? (Region-problem with .bin files?) What to do?
