    Game BASIC for Sega Saturn: in-depth guide

    Has anyone here played around with the Game Basic Compiler from here? SegaXtreme - Saturn Game Basic Tools It works well, in the sense that you can build a disc image and it will autoboot to a menu of all .B files you include. You can even replace the AUTORUN.B with your own file and boot...

    Save Game Extractor: Backup Saves Via Audio

    Nice. Seems like this could this be done programmatically? I have some huge files (like Sega Rally and other racing game ghost data) that I'd like to back up, but clearly it doesn't make sense to do this manually.

    I appreciate the follow-up. Just now had a chance to come back to this. Here's the original .wav that I used to create the rally_records.bin file from the output above. (Or at least, I'm pretty sure it's the same one. It's been a few weeks!)

    Game BASIC for Sega Saturn: in-depth guide

    Yes, actually! I came across that a month or so ago. I was able to determine that it's "Zone.zip" originally developed by Bits Laboratory, available here: https://web.archive.org/web/20010114091900/http://www.highway.ne.jp/bitslabo/basic/down/sample.htm Satakore uploaded it here as "3D...

    Save Game Extractor: Backup Saves Via Audio

    I'll have to take some time to play around with it and get specific answers to your questions, but I just tried again and here's the output: tim@lubuntu-virtualbox:~/Saturn Saves$ minimodem -R 44100 -r 1200 --sync 0xAB --stopbits 4 --startbits 4 > rally_records.bin ### CARRIER 1200 @ 1200.0 Hz...

    Game BASIC for Sega Saturn: in-depth guide

    Glad you enjoyed! I absolutely will keep the tutorial going. I have lots of projects I like to tinker with, so I tend to jump between them. But I'll be getting back to this one soon.

    Save Game Extractor: Backup Saves Via Audio

    Any tips for reducing the error rate? I picked up the Sabrent USB audio adapter you mentioned in chat. I was able to transfer a ~2000 byte file successfully (from my FDD, no less), but my Sega Rally records always fail. That file is ~5000 bytes. Tried transferring it from both internal...

    Ah, hold L while choosing F1 from the virtual keyboard. (Open the virtual keyboard with L+R+Start.)

    JVC X'eye help

    Old post, but in case you/others are still having this problem... I have had this happen with other systems when there is a cracked solder joint connecting the controller port to the main board. I'd open it up and reflow all the port's joints.

    Save Game Extractor: Backup Saves Via Audio

    Registered just so I could say Thanks and that this is incredible! I was playing around with this last night and it works great. And here's the kicker: my laptop doesn't even have a proper microphone or line-in jack, just a combo jack for headsets and I don't have a proper connector for it...
