Aisle Lord (JP) for Sega Mega CD - won't boot


#1

I’ve tried about a dozen separate copies of this game, all converted to .bin/.cue as per the normal process I use for everything. No matter what I do though, I can’t get it to go past the Mega CD BIOS screen.

Is anyone able to confirm this game works? I couldn’t find a compatibility list for GensPlusGX or anything. I don’t know if it’s the game itself, or just the copies I’m finding.


#2

I’m going to test this game and will get back to you with a yes or no.


#3

It works, but not on Genesis Plus GX core, only the Picodrive core managed to boot up this game.

Thanks man, I really appreciate it. Good to know I can stop going double-digits deep in google to find a source haha. I’m gonna have to check if there’s an issue open on Github or something for it. I don’t know that I’ve had any other game ‘not’ boot up in GX, so I was very surprised.


#5

Yeah, not sure why a Sega Cd game wouldn’t but with it’s bios in place. Anyway, can’t you use picodrive in the meantime?


#6

Oh yeah, totally. I’m actually setting RocketLauncher to use that core for this game now. I just thought I’d pop it over on GitHub 'cause it’s probably just some weird bug getting in the way, since it loads like everything else just fine.

I can’t find anything particularly ‘special’ about Aisle Lord that would make it stand out from the rest.
