Exclamation I need help with surreal64 i wasted 13 dvds :'(

sponsored links

 
ive been to many forums and still havent found anything that works.

my situation is i have surreal64 4.95 and have several roms in the roms folder and i want to burn this to a dvd and play on my modded xbox. Many people have said that i have to change the surreal.ini to the correct rom path (how do i know what the right roms path is?)

I have tried many things like making it d:/roms/ etc. but when i burn it to a dvd and play it, it says no roms found when i start it up and ive tried refreshing it also. If anyone knows what i would change the surreal.ini to for my situation or any help on how to do this at all would be very helpful.

ive wasted 13 dvds and like 5 days trying to do it im almost given up on it.

Default

first get a dvd rw save yourself some money if not aggrevation

second, the default path is D:\Roms
so it's already set to run from dvd.... just place the roms in the rom folder

I don't have any n64 roms, so I don't know the format they are in, but in most emulators if they are zipped and causeing problems, you just extract the zip contents to the roms folder. if you have individual folders for each rom, that could cause a problem also. hope this helps, let us know how it goes.

Default

all my roms are individually zipped and in the roms folder and i tried the default path D:\Roms but when the emulator starts up it says no roms found. i know the roms are verified working roms so its not a problem with the roms. I dont know what im doing wrong. People say i have to change the rom path in the surreal.ini but i dont know what to change it to.

the ini goes in the root of the emulator folder not in the roms folder... when you urar/unzip surreal you should have 1 main folder surreal with sub directories

for example:
surreal64\roms
surreal64\saves
surreal64\skins

in the rot of surreal64 should be the ini,default xbe, etc.
these are the files that are necessary for surreal to run on the xbox. nothing needs to be moved, nothing needs to be changed in the ini unless you have changed the default directory where the roms are stored. I would suggest ftping surreal to your e\emulators folder on your xbox with 1 rom in the roms folder.... try to get one rom running but, start with a fresh ini. once you get one rom running you can then ftp the folder back to your pc, create an xbox iso, and everything should be fine.
