Xenon 2: Megablast [CDTV] - Issue with not loading on launch, works after a reset..

Hi Toni,

For some reason, when I start Xenon 2: Megablast [CDTV], it always fails to load the first time...

I then reset and all good

The image is a .BIN & .CUE file i.e. "Xenon 2 - Megablast (1992)(Mirrorsoft)(M5)[CDTV-CD32]".

Nothing "exotic" about my configuration file and the same thing happens when using "Quickstart CDTV".

I wonder what's going on? Logs are attached.

Oh no, it seems to be another one of those games like Murder Makes Strange Deadfollows CDTV that requires "NTSC" to be set

If I do this then the game starts first time, every time.

I have no idea why this would be though, considering it's an "M5" image?

It should boot normally in PAL if CD is inserted after CDTV title screen is visible. (For some reason system has slightly more free RAM/less fragmented RAM if booted this way..)

EDIT: cdimage0=<path>,delay can be used in config file to force 3s CD insert delay. (This is not the only CDTV/CD32 game that needs it..)

Many thanks Toni, I'll try adding a 3 second delay to that line and test when home tonight

Using ",delay" at the end of the "cdimage0=<path>" line works perfectly, many thanks Toni
