Standalone Genesis Game on Dreamcast

by SpaceBooger Thu Jul 04, 2019 1:18 pm

I know there are a plethora of NeoGeo stand-alone discs for games on the Dreamcast. Does anyone know how to make a Genesis standalone game?
I found some stuff online about burining an emulator disc with the rom on it, but does anyone know if there is a way to make a disc that boots up directly to a genesis game?

I think this would only be possible if the emulator was coded to be able to boot straight to a game from config settings or something. Did you ever find an answer?

AFAIK, Genesis emulation is pretty weak on the Dreamcast (unless homebrew folks have made lots of progress in the past couple years). But I don't know how to make single-boot discs for titles. Sorry.

I would suggest this: Download DC Genesis emulators and check any config or ini files that they might have. Look in them for anything that might be a setting for booting straight to a game.
