Pier Solar + enhanced CD soundtrack

12 Aug 2019, 19:49

Does anyone have an explanation of how to get Pier Solar + the Cd soundtrack to work?

I have my CD soundtrack in 4 bin + 1 cue files and i can get to where it asks to insert the cd soundtrack. It then searches for the disc but i just end up getting a cannot find cd message.

Any help on getting the game to work would be much appreciated. :P

We have an upcoming firmware that fixes this. In the current firmware version it only supports one of the revisions of Pier Solar, but upcoming firmware will fix it for the others.

The firmware hasn't been released, but it's been addressed.

If anyone else is wondering a revision C reprint edition rom works with a bin+cue rip of the CD.

Try selecting different bios models. I think pier solar cd has a japanese security sector, so try first using 2.00C bios for thr japanese region. If it doesn't work, try 2.00W bios in EU amd US region. This game supports only a few bios versions.

With pier solar,.you won't see the cd bios loading. The game boots normally and uses a special method to kickstart the megacd sub cpu and access the cd. You'll know it has detected the bios and cd because during the watermelon intro screen, the megasd led will blink and turn off, that means cd has been recognized. Then when thr press.start screen shows, the led will turn on and the cd stored music will play instead of the normal game music.

Also ensure you have megasd updated to latest version.

I'm trying to run the game with the cd audio, but I keep getting a red screen once the Pier Solar rom loads. I ripped a bin/cue from the original cd and placed it in the same folder as the pier solar rom. Any ideas?


EDIT: Nevermind. I fixed it.
