From the games you’ve tested

anything fully playable so far?

with no lag/graphics issue etc

thanks

I'd say the best game playable so far is Capcom Fighting Jam. It has a few graphic issues, but game running full 60 FPS with Vulcan and 1080p. Not all buttons work properly.

Tekken 4 is missing one of the kick buttons.

Yep, the circle/right kick/4 button does not function in Tekken 4 for some reason (it does however work in Soul Calibur 2 & 3), I'm still amazed at how well good this emulator runs on my PC, it works considerably better than Tekken 4 on PCSX2 used to work on my previous computer.

Hopefully it'll get fixed.

hello to all, small pack to launch the games in full screen. to extract to the root of the Play!
Then double click on the bat file corresponding to the game you want to play.

FullScreen.zip

can someone post the mega with the dongle files please. not chd but the .bins

.bins ?

The "dongle files" are the about 2 MB zip files which contain .ic002 files.
Those are MagicGate memory cards, where the game boots the executable from afaik.

.CHD short for "Compressed Hunks of Data" are the images of a CD/DVD, HDD or other types of storage media.

You want to use a .bin file for what ?

Or are you asking for a file, converted from .chd to .bin, for what usage ?

All the games that boot with Play! emulator at moment, I used the .chd files for that in combination with the .zip and .arcadedef files
All (together) in their specific folder.

The .zip files must go into

C:/Users/Your Username/Documents/Play Data Files/arcaderoms

 

Are there games that only boot in a specific format ?

If so, a list of those games and a how-to would be handy.

 

Maybe this helps ?

The link in the tutorial contains the .arcadedef and .zip files

 

And most of the Magic Gate .zip and System2X6 .chd files can be found by googeling the .chd filename,
which is mentioned in the .arcadedef file, open with a texteditor.

Remember, the smaller archive file (about 2MB) on those pages is the MagicGate, executable boot file, etcetera.

The bigger .chd file is the diskimage, the game data

Hi guys, I passed the first step converting chd to bin using the bat file:

 

chdman extracthd -i name.chd -o name.iso

 

but for convert into a chd again it fails:

 

chdman createcd -i name.iso -o name.chd

 

ERROR: Unrecognized track type
Error parsing input file (C:\name.iso: Unsupported format)

Fatal error occurred: 1

 

Some solution? 😎

You probably are trying to convert two incompatible formats back and forth

What I mean with that, maybe you tried to convert a harddisk .chd to a .iso file which is a cd/dvd format, back to a harddisk image.

All the current Play! emulator supported games that boot I use the .chd in combination with the .arcadedef and .zip files, all in their correct folders.

Play! emulator has the folder and file names hardcoded, so do not deviate from exact standard

2. chdman createcd -i xxx1.iso -o xxx1.chd

worked for me on 0.249 & 0.250
