@AnnaWu

Hellow there,

I never tried the NeoGeoCDz feature before, either way if you find any bug or issue please report it in their main repo:

https://github.com/barry65536/FBAlpha

@Lodan

Thanks for the feedback. I am not sure it is a bug or a faulty handling on my part.
Example: [2019-03-02]_FBAlpha0.2.97.44_Win32_git-918e036.7z
Can you try the function GAME > Start Neo Geo CDZ... and tell me the message?
I get the FB Alpha error: Couldn´t initialise CD emulation.
The ROMs are available and working with the older version.

Here a build from Feb 2 2019 which is working for me.

OK, I know the reason. The new versions support CD images with MODE1/2048 no more.
I need CD images now with .bin/.cue and .ccd/.img-trurip with MODE1/2352 support.

This means, I can not take 1:1 over the old CD images anymore. I have to convert
the old CD images first.

Please, can you upload one little CD image with MODE1/2048 to test?

Thanks

@AnnaWu

Yes, you're right, sorry the delay to reply, I was waiting an official response:

@shanigma

You can follow this tutorial to convert the images:

Load Neo geo CDZ game....

Select game menu...

Do you know how does the game menu show the CD Cover picture?

Example: 0075-front.png/0075-back.png is no more working.

@AnnaWu

I've tried "shortname"-front.png & "shortname"-back.png, "iso-filename"-front.png & "iso-filename"-back.png and didn't worked, I assume it's a bug, will compile the latest commit to see if the bug remains, if so, I will report it

@Lodan

Thank for your feedback.
Maybe it makes sense to ask dinkc64 about the needed name and graphic format.
See his screenshot and text below the screenshot.
https://github.com/barry65536/FBAlpha/issues/23

"I've tried "shortname"-front.png & "shortname"-back.png"

I think ID-front/back.png no more work because Front Cover and Back Cover no more exist.
Now it is called CD Cover and Game Preview, so the name and maybe the format must be different.

shortname-front.png in support/neocdz
CD Cover is ok and visible.
Example: viewpoin-front.png

shortname.png in previews
Does not make sense.
1.) Not work for me
2.) It use the same name like the shortname in previews for the ROMs.

shortname.png in previews
Does not make sense.
1.) OK it is working.
2.) It use the same name like the shortname in previews for the ROMs.

I suggest to use separated preview pictures between the ROMs and NGCD files.

@AnnaWu

Dink replied about the isse in the FBA repo (https://github.com/barry65536/FBAlpha/issues/24#issuecomment-470916103)

"Hi,
Because we couldn't find all of the neogeo cdz cover backs, I changed it to show cd cover front and game preview for the second one. If you have access to all of the cover "backs", and let me know where to get them, I can change the preview part back to the back cover :)
It should default to support/neocdz, and support/previews
try shortname-front.png in support/neocdz and shortname.png in previews

best regards,

  • dink "

Now only front cover's are supported, the cover folder can be manually defined by Misc -> Configure support file paths.. -> Neo Geo CDZ Covers, the images must be in png format with follow naming "shortname-front.png"

AnnaWu,

The shortname.png in previews is just a temporary solution until all of the neogeo cdz back cover images can be located.  Sure, its the same as rom versions previews, but, in-game preview image for roms and in-game for cd versions of the same game are the same anyways. :)

 

best regards,

And why did you add a 7.7 MB dat to your post? It's not even a fixdat.
