Hi.
i have downloaded Resident evil veronica via bittorrent(Resident Evil code Veronica (DC-KALISTO))
The first disc was .cdi image format and i didn't have problem with it and i finished disc 1,
but the second disc is in .bin format(There are two files in extracted folder a .bin and a .cue)
The nullDC doesn't recognize bin file and i tried to convert it to .nrg and .mds using UltraISO(Trial)
it recognized the image but then it goes to music play screen of DC console(meaning it cant run <_< )

How can i fix this?
and if it is not fixable can someone giveme a link to a working Resident evil veronica torrent file that has seeders?

Thank You.

Please read the board rules.

On topic, .bin files work fine with nullDC. There a good chance that there a bug in either in multi disc games or the game itself. Cd image format conversion shouldn't be even needed.

I have the same problem with Virtua Tennis .bin file...cant get it to work at all...? nulldc crashes when I go to load it...

Whats the difference between the opening .bin/elf file and loading it? why do they have both options...do you know???

I don't know about emulators, but a Bin/Cue image isn't selfbooting (It absolutely, positively cannot be), and won't load on it's own on a real system.
Are you sure about what you said Agozer?

Eh, I'm not really sure anymore after I took a look at my images and some misc DC docs on my computer... There's a really good chance that you're right and I'm wrong. The fact that it's been ages since I've seen a BIN/CUE Dreamcast image supports your statement.

Still, I could swear that I've gotten a BIN/CUE pair to work just fine on DC emulator.

Keith: Don't follow my advice and do convert the BIN files to CDI. That won't automatically make the game selfboot, so you still have to use a bootdisc or hack the image to make it selfboot.

Yeah, too much work (over my head). I can live without virtua tennis :D
