Cores that allow automatic loading of a certain rom/disk image/other?

Postby olliraa » Tue Nov 28, 2017 8:19 am

Hi.

Been following this project with great interest over the last few months :) I'd need to know which cores allow the user to automatically load a certain rom/disk image/tape image/other when the core is loaded? This means no user activity should be required at all after the core is loaded. Sorgelig kindly told me there are such cores and I'd need to know what those cores are exactly.

All help highly appreciated :)

Cores not required bios and support loading files. For example: Trbografx 16, NES

There's a special name to use for the file right? For the TGE16/PCE it's "boot.rom". Is it he same for the NES?

it's standard way to automatically push the file to core at startup. It's reserved for bios/ipl, but if core doesn't require the bios/ipl, then it's free for loading other files at startup if core accepts.

If file is in root of SD, then it should have <name>.rom where <name> is name you see in OSD at the left vertically. If file is in core's dedicated folder, then it should have name boot.rom
