Hey I am having an issue with emustation and adding Sega games. I have SNES and NES all setup. When I go and add my Sega ROMs they cut off the last letter of most of my ROMs names. Which then it won't allow me to link my artwork. I can't seem to get around this. Any one else experience this. Could it be my rom set? The games all work as they should just the art work and names being cut off. They are .Md. Designation. I have tried it under both genesis and mega drive

OK I figured it out. It took 2 days of messing with to figure out.... DO NOT UNZIP THE FILES!

Once I added the zipped roms it seemed to take care of it. I assume because it deletes the .zip off the end of the file, where I had it as a .md file.

Example. sonic.zip would get shortened to sonic where as sonic.md would get shortened to soni 

I could be wrong, I am not a professional and only do this stuff for my amusement. (I got 2 day worth of amusement out of this one) 

Any how I hope some one else can get use of this as well. Now I get to go and RE-NAME ALL 782 files again!

      I am in the process of setting up Rocky5's excellent XBMC Emustation dashboard and am finishing it off with the C64 section at the moment.
      Is there a way to get the nice cover art like you can for the other emulators which I have had the luxary of fixing easily thru the downloads on XBMC Emustation?

      Hi all
      got several Sega games that I just can't get to load from my HDD.
      most notably Jest Set Radio Future, Panzer Dragoon Orta and Gunvalkyrie.
      I know they all have an issues with the v.1.6 but I`m using a tsop V.1.4 with an up to date UnleashX as main  dashboard.
      for each game I have tried different sources of ISO's and Redumps but all versions act the same way. the game Freezes on Sega logo (Jest Set) or when loading first level (Gunvalkyrie, Panzer)
      tried to load them trough different dashboards (XBMC4GAMERS, emustation etc) to no avail.
      been reading all relevant discussions and couldn't find another example of this problem, nor a solution,  so it must be something with my console's configuration.
      any ideas?
