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.
What ended up being the problem?
Well... to be truthful I simply downloaded a different Pier Solar ROM from the internet. The ROM I originally had was ripped directly from my copy of the game using Retrode. I noticed my copy was 4 MB in size, but the one I downloaded from the internet was 8 MB. So there is obviously something different with the one I downloaded, but it works.

There might be some trick to how to extract the data. I recall when it was released, they were concerned about the (at that time) current ability of duplication, and there was some discussion about how to protect it while still being playable (but I don’t know what was done, if anything actually was done).

How did you setup your folder & cue? The first track is digital and says please insert the cart, does one replace the track 1 with cart image?

You want to have both the cart's .md rom image AND the bin/cue for the disc together in the same directory - the MegaSD will recognize that as signifying an MD+ game. Don't replace the disc's data track; I'm reasonably certain that's the part of the disc Pier Solar is actually looking for.
