PCE CD-ROM2 TurboGrafx-CD GameBase

Sat Oct 02, 2010 4:56 pm

Can anyone share this in manageable chunks ?

I get the error message 'File exceeds filesystem size limit' I've tried my internal & 2 external HDD's but get the same message.

38.4Gb is just too big to download at once onto my system, really want this as if it's as well put together as the PC-FX one should be a real treat.

Here's the link for the Gamebase on UG, but like I say just cannot download 1 file this size.

Aren't your harddrives NTFS formatted ?

That's a problem that can be solved easily.

I assume that you use an NT based Windows version (2000/XP/Vista/7).
If that's the case, your HDD's are probably formatted with the FAT32 file system. You can check this by right clicking the drive letter in Windows Explorer and choose Properties. Some information is displayed about the disk. One of these properties is the file system. This can be FAT32 or NTFS.

If you want to store files on a disk with a size of more than 4 GB, the file system must be NTFS, because FAT32 cannot address files bigger than 2^32 (4294967296) bytes.

If the file system is FAT32, you can convert it to NTFS without loosing data. Open a command prompt (Click Start, Run and type CMD) and type in the following command:

Code: Select all

CONVERT E: /FS:NTFS
Replace E: with the driverletter of the disk you want to convert from FAT32 to NTFS.
After the conversion you will be able to store large files on your harddisk.

(BTW it's always a good idea to check if you have a backup of important data on your HDD before making changes to it. However, I've converted lots of HDD's this way without ever having a single problem).

sorry i don't have it.
and didn't have the ratio to get it all in one huge file at the time.

i did make one using the UG PCECD 99% torrent.

This gamebase contains all the notes and screens from the torrent description by Mystman.

but you will need the 510 ISO's from that HUGE ratio busting 132.21 GB torrent. :shock:

just need to link all the CD covers, and write a script. :wink:
this won't happen any time soon, as i am VERY busy.

This Gamebase is no longer launching games for me ? Can anyone upload just the gamebase files excluding games, screenshots, extras etc so I can try and see if replacing the files makes it work. Sure it's not a script issue as it's a straight forward script.

Or there's this version - http://www.underground-gamer.com/details.php?id=44059

not sure what the difference is between them all but I'd rather download the smaller version, anyone fancy doing a rapidshare upload? Always fancied this gamebase but simply have'nt got anywhere near the UG ratio to download it.

The PC-FX is a totally different machine to the PCE-CD.

The PCE-CD is a addon CD drive for the PC Engine.

The PC-FX was the followup machine.

The Battery Shark account seems to have been deleted from UG, due to inactivity, along with the PCE-CD Gamebase. :cry:

this script will work with mednafen.

Code: Select all

;--------------------------------------------------------------------


Else
Add_CLP(-loadcd pce -pce.cdbios syscard3J.pce "%gamepathfile%")
End If

Run_Emulator()
just needs the BIOS files in the mednafen emulator dir, with these names.

syscard1J.pce
syscard2J.pce
syscard3J.pce
syscard2U.pce
syscard3U.pce
gamesexpress.pce


The GameBase will work also with MagicEngine with a virtual drive and daemon tools command line.

Never knew it was a different machine, would be nice to have both gamebases but the sheer size of the damn things make it impossible from UG, dax - where are you? :P

64 PC-FX games are easy to find in separate downloads,
which will save 25 GB of uploading.

However these are the older set of CD images,
not the new TRURIP complete redump 35 GB.

http://database.trurip.org/index.php?pa ... tles&id=10

For the average GameBaser, i don't think it really matters about using the old set, saving 10GB in the process.

But as there are only about 70 Games in total.
it would only take a few mins to link either set.

Thanks for the script .mad will try it out.

Ox I can upload both the PC Engine CD and PC-FX Gamebases minus the game files if you wish ?
