    I got my GDEmu clone last week and I have tested many games. The only game I got problems its Sega Rally 2 US version. The game runs very slow, about 5fps. I've tested the Japanese one and it works great. I don't know why my GDEmu doesn't like U.S Sega Rally. Other than that everything works fine :)

    That is very strange. My clone played the US version of the game well.

    Yes, Ive tested more than 60 games! Everything works great, including the JP version. I don't know why it doesn't like the U.S one. I'm going to try with another GDI.

    help
    i have encountered some freeze issues on use GDEmu
    i use Lexar 8G SDcard and has been formated (non fast format,32k cluster),after copy some game into it
    but when i played some days,a freeze occour in game,i tried restart gdemu and game still freeze on same point,unless i reformat
    my game is Super Robot Wars Alpha for DC gdi format,but it seem not like only this game issue,seem SDcard filesystem broken???
    i want know how to avoid this because i don't want to format my sd card frequently :confused:
    i guess because my shutdown method is improper(in game press power button),before not exit to dreamcast bios cause this???

    Have you tried a GDI from another source? On my Cloned GDEMU everything is running fine, I was even able to run Pier Solar from it. The only game I had problem was the Sega Rally 2 U.S version.

    GDEMU don't write data to SD card and can't corrupt FS

    SD cards vary a lot in quality. Try with another one, or a few, before concluding that your GDEMU has issues.

    It is probably problems with your SD Card. One thing I realised (With the SD Cards I have), if it has more than 8 GB format it in 32 KB, if it is bellow 8GB format it in 64KB. It worked better for me.

    That front page hasn't been updated in years. I can only speak from experience, but my 128gb SanDisk Micro SD card works amazingly, is affordable as hell and can be found here for under $30.

    Ok so I got a new SD card and it works perfectly... I have a clone but it says my games are unsupported ? I added the GDI and renamed it disc and added the bins all in separate folders names 02 03 ect?

    EDIT: Nevermind ISO works well.

    You dont need to rename anything. Just put the files in the folder! One game per folder.
