SubjectGD-ROM preservation question Reply to this message

Is there any current project for preserving proper dumps of games on GD-ROM media? I assume that the MAME Dumping Project already has a method of backing up NAOMI/NAOMI2/etc. GD-ROM games to CHD-CD or somesuch. All that seems to be around for the Dreamcast is scene released rips cut to CD size. Any information anyone can provide on the subject would be appreciated, thanks.

I know a couple of games have proper rips that aren't in public distribution (probably because of hoarding faggots), like Propeller Arena...but for the most part I don't think anyone is making a concentrated effort to preserve 'em.

...especially since Chankast won't play a full GD-ROM image unless you trim it down to 700mb. AWESOME!

Considering that when the NeoGeo was added to MAME, too new games were added, I doubt anyone wants to open the door to a Naomi like mess even on a dumping level...

Maybe when the Naomi gets discontinued...

Not that I'd know anything about having games before they were old enough to be included in MAME...Who me? ;)
