When you have zero byte pak it loads the files in the /data directory this what should be happening it will speed up loading not caching the whole pak then unzipping each file then making a table then loading into memory this how i got it to load in under a 1 min on cdr if you dont unpak the pak file on a cdr it will take 10 mins to load or not load at all..
So the zero byte pak is the correct way to do it on dreamcast if you want the fastest loading..
unpak the bor.pak in data on the root of the cd image have a zero byte pak just a txt file renamed bor.pak
Supposing the games are heavy ones I will need to use the Non-menu version: So this have a "Data" folder and into it there is another "data" folder and video.rar and video.txt, so i have to rename this txt file ?
No each data folder will be normal..
DCMC will load the none menu version DCMC becomes the menu loader.. Dreambor 1 will load data folder 1 on root dreambor 2 loads data folder 2 etc each can have a icon on the menu to match the game ..
Makes it easy and much more polished.. You might not have been following my work on DCMC..
DCMC has menu music full hardware rendering and can load any homebrew bin and wince games.. Every thing is the same but the folder for each game no more pak files are needed.. Test only has data folder included the plain files to show it.. I was asked to put it out you will only have to change each folder /data1
Etc it's 100% the same each game will go in to it's own folder..
Right now only Data and 1 game loads it's a test not the complete release.. each version is not the menu version DCMC replaces any need for a openbor loader or menu for the future.. Much HQ then any menu before it or loader..
Each version of Dreambor will be numbered to do this have there own icon on DCMC it does not load the games from just one version.. Each is it's own thing allowing heavy games..
