If you can navigate Japanese this might be useful ?

Looking forward to this had a glance on YouTube seems to be some really good ports of arcade games.

I have uploaded a copy of the gamebase without CD Games, these you have to supply yourself, It does include some Floppy games though.

Thank you for including a few games for some basic testing. Going to have to pick a few more to grab from UG before the golden week is over.

Hi OX most of the games came from there so you should be able to get them while its a golden torrent week.

Here's a small prezzie for you all.

Rainbow Islands (Bootable version) 5MB
CD Audio was ripped to save 327MB.
this works in UNZ with FM Marty BIOS.

Will show this Screen at startup.

Went ahead and grabbed the entire torrent which finished a couple of hours ago. Now I see its an All Golden weekend at UG. Time to clear a few bookmarks I didn't want to spend the ratio on.

I haven't gotten them to run either. Seem to mount in DTLite, and launches the emulator, but thats as far as it gets.

First you need to check UNZ is using the virtual drive created by DTLite.

Run UNZ and check
Settings/Property/CD-ROM1/Select Drive

Then check FM Towns Machine setting ID
i use FM Towns Marty for CDs, which works ok.
you will need the Marty BIOS for it.

The Virtual Drive will be created the first time you run DTLite,
and your PC will probably need to reboot afterwards.
If using Win7 you will need to run with admin rights.

Before DTLite can mount the CD from GameBase, it needs to extract the image to the GBGame/0/ rezip folder.
depending on the CD image size, this could take a while.

To speed up the testing, i would recommend mounting the sample Rainbow Islands ISO directly in DTLite (not via GameBase command-line).
Then any errors will show up.
once mounted Run UNZ.
as i know this image does work.
