Dreamcast Not Working
#1
So I installed the supreme Retrostone image (full) on my Retrostone. I wanted to play some Dreamcast games and so I went to install Reicast. But it was already installed. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but the Reicast/Dreamcast popup on the main menu didn't show up. I realized that I forgot to put the bios in. So I put the bios in the dc folder in the bios folder. Then I restarted my system. But Dreamcast still wasn't working! Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Hi -

Summary of various posts...

It works for me.

The BIN files need to be in the "/home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS/dc" directory. If the "dc" folder does not exist you can simply create it. Don't put it into the BIOS directory… it messes the boot up.
dc_boot.bin
dc_flash.bin

The ROMs go into the roms/Dreamcast
NOTE: ** MUST be all-in-one CDI format!! ** NOT RARs/ZIPs.

Also need to hit A+B+X+Y+Start at title screen of the first game that works and ERASE the VMU. Otherwise it is initially corrupt.

Don't hit the Select Key --> it will abort the Reicast.

Hope that helps.

removing then trying to reinstall breaks the installation as there are changes in upstream code

quicker solution: reflash the image, as the sources wont be updated at this very moment.

The thing is that I did reflash the image a bunch of times. And the +start Reicast didn't show up on the main menu.

Populate ROMs and run then straight from Emulationstation
