Skies of Arcadia on nullDC

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to get Skies of Arcadia to run on nullDC. It gets me to the settings menu and no further. I use the following files:

Skies of Arcadia v1.002 (2000)(Sega)(NTSC)(US)(Disc 1 of 2)[!].gdi





I'm using the NTSC bios of course.


So far I've played Phantasy Star Online and Grandia II and both worked just fine. I even updated my graphic card drivers and tried using the Chankast video plugin, but all to no avail.


If someone could tell me how to get it working, it would be greatly appreciated.


If further information is needed, like computer specs, configuration settings and such, just tell me and I'll post them. Oh, and also tell me WHERE to look such information up, because I'm a total nubcake at this.


Thanks (in advance).


EDIT: Got it to work on Chankast, using Pal files though. Still, doesn't nullDC have better graphics?

nullDC is fr more stable, and has less audio and graphics glitches. It should be noted though that nullDC have this glitch in SoA where you can't see the skills and items you are selecting during battle, because the "green selection indicator" fails at being transparent.


Plus, my game froze after the video where the crew return to town with the airship after the first boss fight.

Well, since there's a patch specifically for running it on Chankast, the .cdi file is much better, both in terms of graphics and sound, using Chankast. I'd still like to try out the .gdi file though, which brings me to my next question:


Could someone who can succesfully run the .gdi file of Skies of Arcadia on nullDC please post/PM me their entire nullDC.cfg file so I can copy (parts of) it. You can access it by opening it with Notepad or another text editor.

(A screenshot of your nullDC folder (including plugins and data) would also be helpful.)



It'd be very appreciated.
