I always load the .cue file and it works, no idea if .ccd files and the like work
It's a known issue - the battery miscalibrates awfully easy. Lots of threads everywhere (like this one from the Steam forums). Current theory is that if you ever use a power unit that is not the one included in the Deck (which I did because I forgot the factory one at home) your odds of getting this bug increases.That's...quite a bug. What the hell is that about?
okay HAVING SAID THAT: I can't get Saturn games to load from Emulation Station. I select a game as usual and it goes black screen then right back to the game selection menu. I've added BIOS etc, any ideas?
It could be looking for a specific bios file - might be an incorrect filename, or it's looking for a US bios, etc. I downloaded the 351ELEC-20211122-BIOS file from this link, unzipped it, and put the bios files in the correct bios folder. The various emulators are very picky about the bios filename, which was a problem for me on my Raspberry Pi in the past, so I assume it'll be a problem here, too. The behavior of loading a black screen and going right back to the menu says to me it's a bios issue - if it were a rom issue, you'd get the screen with the Saturn CD player and no game (typically, anyway).
