It doesn't work yet, it's just preliminary work. Wait for FIRES (and/or others) to
finish up the code.

#3 Updated by marcus over 11 years ago

hmmm...wad is the original format for wii disk dumps, right?

Try using RawDump 2.0 (download it from somewhere) to convert to file to an ISO.
After you extract the zip, run the exe and click 'convert to ISO'. Select your wad
and click open, then wait for it to convert. Note that you DO NOT an lg drive to do
this.

#4 Updated by lpfaint99 over 11 years ago

no sorry, you may be thinking of wod files. (scrambled data from a wii optical disc)

wad files can be
Firmware updates from Nintendo
Ripped VC games
Homebrew Channels
Ripped WiiWare games

#5 Updated by marcus over 11 years ago

yeah, I thought that might've been what you meant, as they are, IMO, very easy to
mix up.

#6 Updated by XTra.KrazzY over 11 years ago

try r2425 and come back here with results/panic alerts.

#7 Updated by bkchaw over 11 years ago

It is r2636 and using this revision for mm9 also works for me. But when I try to
play it using latest revisions in is not very playable. The game runs very slow, and
it's impossible to play as megaman sprite is missing from the levels. In r2636 there
is no such problems for me.
And problems that are also in r2636 and still not fixed - sound disappears and
losing control of the player after loading from save state.

oops... Fixed a LOOONG time ago...

#18 Updated by ChabadKfarSaba about 11 years ago

I still have problems with Megaman 9 WAD - and those problems wasn't present in
r2636 as seen in the video on youtube.

#19 Updated by XTra.KrazzY about 11 years ago

Have you tried real XFB, safe texture cache, Copy EFB to RAM?
They are all options in the Graphics Settings.

#20 Updated by sl1nk3.s about 11 years ago

Megaman 9 has messed up projections :(
but otherwise it works great, so you can't say it's "not emulated", this issue is fixed.

#21 Updated by knuckles500 about 11 years ago

Eh, I don't think so.

Some WAD files still refuse to work properly. Pulseman (JP) doesn't display any
video, even with all that stuff XK recommended I enable, but you do get sound. Some
WAD files get stuck at "Loading file". Some WADS have a lot of flickering, while
some don't have any flickering. Note, these are all Sega Genesis games - no
injections. Pretty strange behavior. It depends on the game at this point. But I do
have to agree, I hate all the projection issues we've been having for almost a year
now. Wish someone could get to work on a perma solution soon. :(

Oh, and don't get me started on N64 WADS, no clue why none of them work yet. :p

#22 Updated by XTra.KrazzY about 11 years ago

  • Status changed from Fixed to Work started

You're completely right. Unfixed.

#23 Updated by ChabadKfarSaba about 11 years ago

Yes, I have tried all the possible graphics options but no success. And again, if I
use the old r2636 there is less problems and the game is playable. Maybe something
is broken in newer releases.

#24 Updated by knuckles500 almost 11 years ago

Update, Pulseman displays video now - some other stuff works now too.

Now for the things that don't work:

1.) N64 Games (don't boot)
2.) SNES Games (no sound, sometimes don't boot)

Genesis games work fine though - I think all of them do with no problems (except that
low frame rates can ruin the feeling).

#25 Updated by ChaosCode almost 11 years ago

can mark this as fixed.

#26 Updated by death2droid almost 11 years ago

Why?
Not all wads run :P

#27 Updated by lpfaint99 almost 11 years ago

we don't have a "GCM Emulattion complete" issue though :P

#28 Updated by tracy.poff almost 11 years ago

@28:

Indeed, it's probably best either to turn this into a tracking bug (though on GCH,
tags are probably more useful for this) or just close it in favor of bugs about
specific WADs.
