Pulling my hair out on this one. I’ve found a bit of information on it, but none of it has been useful as it all tells me to do exactly what I’ve been doing already.
I’m really just trying to test this to make sure I don’t wind up playing through the full first disk of Panzer Dragoon Saga to only find out I can’t get disk swapping to work.
I’ve created a .m3u with all of the .cue files for the game and that is what I’m launching in RA. I’m using the Beetle (previously Mednafen?) core.
After launching the game, I am going into the menu under “Disk Control” and using “Cycle Disk Tray Status.” I get the notification that the tray has opened. I then try changing “Disk Index” to 2 and it says fails to load disk 2.
With the disk tray still “open” I exit the menu back into the game and it’s still playing like normal. It’s not griping about the tray being open, so It seems like the RA front end isn’t communicating the action of opening the tray with the core.
I’m pretty sure I’m doing everything right. I’ve used this exact same procedure with PSX games using Beetle PSX and it is working.
Edit: Oh! Just remembered something. Not sure if this is related, but I’ll add it in anyway. When trying to launch the game from the .m3u, I am getting a notification saying “Uncorrectable data at sector 0.” It doesn’t seem to affect gameplay. I do not get this error when loading disk 1 directly.
