Do you think it would be possible in a future update to add menu music?

I doubt that, the actual menu is not really open sourced. It is slightly modable but that is about it. We need to wait for mrneo240 to release his Open Menu for the system. He used the bootloader from this in his menu and with the source to his menu available hopefully soon, people could modify that all kinds of ways with maybe a cheat menu built in, and custom game art and game description info.

Hey the people some help, does anyone here have a problem with the loading screen , I dont understand as it loads up straight away then after removing games or adding
i then get Loading screen which happens on first boot up of the console, some times take a 1min or 3, i think the games list is not loading properly any chance there is a way fix or is this how it is atm in this stable form this would be great for it to bot straight up .
thanks .

Just to mention i used the GDEMU game downloads form here , i line them up in alphabet in the gdmenu order and export it to default

Its because its not detecting your games list. So its building it at boot. You have to disable the menu in GDMenu Maker, then check it again, and what I usually do is go into customize when prompted, and then save, and then I tend not to have any issues.

That worked like a treat thanks for your help, I quess now if you were to a 200gb card will there still be any loading ?
ALso you may be the right guy to ask. Do you know if there is work going on with a different menu system Layout or prehaps a 16:9 GDEMU interface

This is a heavily modified version of the original GDMENU theme called "CleanCast". The following changes have been made:

• The GDMENU logo has been replaced with an all-white version of the Dreamcast logo.
• The stock "no conver art" disc image has been replaced with a new image.
• An all-white SEGA logo has been added to the bottom-right of the menu.
• The action menu (Play, Exit, Menu) has been centered and its font has been changed.

To utilize this custom GDMENU theme using Madsheep's SD Card Maker tool, follow the simple instructions below:

1) Backup the existing "1ST_READ.BIN" file in the "GDEMU_SD 1.10\data\files" folder.
2) Copy the "1ST_READ.BIN" file from this archive to the "GDEMU_SD 1.10\data\files" folder.
3) Launch the GDEMU SD Card Maker (GDEMU_SD.exe) and remove the very first entry labeled "GDMENU".
4) Click the "SAVE" icon at the bottom-right of the SD Card Maker program and when prompted, choose "Yes" for creating a customized menu.
5) At this point, the custom "1ST_READ.BIN" file included in this archive will be used to compile a new .CDI image used for the GDMENU itself. You're done, enjoy!

It would appear that your Google Drive link is dead (generic TOS violation error message).

Do you have copies hosted elsewhere of both of the themes featured in your video? They're quite nice!

Thanks.

Cool stuff! Just curious is this okay with GDEMU clones that can't be updated? cheers.
