Been outside, enjoying the summer, and I missed the news that a firmware was released supporting CDI ! Very exciting. Unfortunately, I'm one of the ones with the early model controller. Can you detail where the "...file the controller generates on GDI loading..." is located and named, so that I can send MNEMO a simple email with the information in it that he needs ? Greatly appreciated! Very excited to finally try HALF-LIFE with the USB-GDROM! That 25% faster performance improvement will help with that, too... Darn those Dreamcast HALF-LIFE load screens! Still not clear on what the difference is between "root_init.rar" and "root_init2.rar" I'd rather not load them until I know, so I will ask - - Maybe "root_init.rar" does the [A-B] style directory structure? AND "root_init2.rar" does the [A], [C], [D], etc. directory structure...? I already created [A-B] style subdirectories very early on to place all my GDI rips in when I realized MNEMO's menu system would freeze with a single, giant directory of rips. But maybe using his directory structure configuration system is faster? Thanks for anyone that can answer these noobish questions!
