    Default Sega Genesis ROM set(BIN FORMAT ONLY)

    So,

    I have a Gopher on the way and it plays roms off of an SD card. The only thing is that it takes BIN files only. All the romsets I see around are just in either SMD or like my Everdrive ROM set, GEN.

    Does anyone have a full rom set in BIN format exclusively?

    BIN is a format for CD games. It usually will come with a CUE file.

    You get Binary (*.bin) roms aswell as CD images

    There are converters floating around though, will check my Megadrive collection when I get home from work not sure what format mine are in

    i recall you only need to change the extension from .gen to..bin with Genesis roms.

    There may be some minor variables in the header that wouldn't be correct with simply changing the extension. Although I'd wager dollars to doughnuts that a simple extension change is sufficient for this Gopher thing. So yeah, just use some batch file renamer or something... Failing that, just use Ucon64 and batch convert the fileset for reals.
    *Hey* New downloaders. You want to install Jdownloader 1 with the web installer, it contains malware Don't play it safe and get the offline installer, or JD2. Or try pyLoad, CryptLoad or Mipony. Your pain is one of the few things that amuses Grumpy Cat.

    Mine are .md that I believe are actually plain binary i.e. same as .bin but batch converting is just as easy

    I realy don't have that much time so I will personly pass on this unless you are realy struggling to get them/get them converted

    REN *.SMD *.BIN

    Quit and Save Document

    Change the .txt file extension to .cmd

    Double Click the .cmd file .... All done
