Compiling Hu-Go! GX to SD2SP2 use

Post by Shiori_Fujisaki » Mon May 03, 2021 7:59 am

I noticed that back in January of 2019 emu_kidid released a version of Hu-Go! GX which was compiled with what (at the time) was the latest libOGC. It is my understanding that this version does not support the SD2SP2 because that PCB was not available until later that year, in July of 2019. I also saw that in March of 2020, someone compiled a different emulator, Genesis Plus GX, to SD2SP2 use. This made me wonder if I could do something similar with Hu-Go! GX. Is it really as simple as re-compiling it with the latest libOGC? If this is the case, I am very interested in doing so. Any information I may need would be greatly appreciated.

Here you go, don't expect anything else improved other than SD2SP2 support (which I haven't tested myself).

I am happy to report that this version was able to see the files on my SD card via the SD2SP2. Unfortunately, whenever I try to load a rom it says "Exception (DSI) occurred!". I tried burning the same rom onto a DVD-R and it played the game perfectly, which proves that the rom is not the problem. (tested with Bomberman).

Interestingly, I just tried using an SD Gecko with this version, and when I tried to load a rom it said "syscard.pce not found !" even though I had taken the BIOS .pce file, re-named it to syscard.pce, and placed it in the /hugo directory on the SD card. (I used USA v3.0).

I just tried using it with the Gecko again, and it didn't complain about syscard.pce this time. This time I got the same "Exception (DSI) occurred!" that I got when I tested it with the SD2SP2.

np, I'll actually try it with games to see what's up. It's likely in my refactoring of warnings I broke something

Alright, this one works with .pce files: https://github.com/emukidid/hugo-gx/rel ... ogx-210506

CD-ROM support seems dead, I'm not sure if it ever worked tbh.

CD images(bin) work in a very limited way. I've done a tutorial here.

Would like to ask that the function "Return to Loader" be implemented.

Now that it is possible to return to the Swiss, it is quite useful. NeoCD Redux Unofficial too, if possible, since another user has shown interest in this emulator as well.

Too bad about the CD games though. I just tested it with every BIOS. It always says "LOAD ERROR!" or just "ERROR!". Then again, I could have been using a bad rom. (tested with Ys Book 1 and 2)
