    Default Another Saturn Emulation Thread...

    I just downloaded NiGHTS and the hacked version of GiriGiri Gav, but I have no idea how to use it. It says to run gentoc on the .cue, but when I do that the toc.bin never shows up. I've read the readme but it really doesnt help... Anyone know how to work this thing?

    I have no idea how to use it at all But I'm pretty sure I've heard it only works with bin+cue rips & CDs. I'm assuming you grabbed my copy of Nights. So maybe you'll have to convert it to bin+cue or mount the image with Daemon Tools.

    Satourne always freezes after I configure plug-ins. I've also tried using it as a CD and ive turned it to bin/cue

    You have to run command prompt and have the bin and cue in the directory with gentoc.. then run it like this..

    C: \girigiri>gentoc.exe thegame.cue

    then open base.ini and put in where the toc and cue files go.. like this..

    ;基本情報設定ファイル
    [BASEINFO]
    USERDIR=profiles\saturn

    AREA=4
    DISK1TOC=C: \GiriGiri\toc.bin
    DISK1IMG=C: \GiriGiri\thegame.bin

    When I run the gentoc on the cue it says it is unable to open NiGHTS.cue and doesnt make the toc.bin

    open nights.cue with notepad and look at where it says FILE. It should look something like this.. Heres my cue for shiningforce 3

    FILE "shiningforce3.iso" BINARY
    TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
    POSTGAP 00:02:00

    If the cue file directory doesnt match where the iso and wavs are there will be an error..

    FILE "C: \shiningforce3.iso" BINARY
    TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
    POSTGAP 00:02:00

    If its like this take the directory out
    FILE "C: \shiningforce3.iso"

    back up your cue file and do this.. then save

    FILE "shiningforce3.iso"

    make sure all the iso wav files are in the same directory as gentoc.exe and nights.cue

    try running it again with gentoc and when your successfull it will say

    C: \saturn\GiriGiri>gentoc.exe shin3.cue
    GENTOC v1.02 - by Gavionne (c)2003
    -Added a hack to get mangled 1 track images working
    -Added ability to update base.ini(see usage)

    Horray! A mangled image detected!
    You see, somebody(either yourself or the buddy you got this image from) decided
    it'd be a great idea to rip the audio track(s). Normally, it's fine on a real
    saturn, but girigiri itself doesn't seem to like images are like that. Any toc's

    generated for this image could very well not work.

    toc.bin created successfully

    My cue doesnt have near as much as yours does.

    FILE "NIGHTS.BIN" BINARY
    TRACK 01 MODE1/2352
    INDEX 01 00:00:00


    Thats all thats there on the bin/cue

    but the CloneCD rip of it has more

    FILE "Nights.img" BINARY

    I also need help with that gentoc.exe, I tried it on both CDRWin and Clone CD ISO's with no success. Why doesn't it make the gentoc.bin?

    EDIT: Just fixing my post since it sounded like a person who doesn't know english using a translator. XD

    I don't know...the readme makes it look so simple...but nooooo. I seriously wish I could just find a Saturn with NiGHTS and Fighter's Megamix at some game shop.
