    Hi All,

    I can’t seem to get PC Engine CD/Turbo CD games to boot.

      Normal HuCard games are working.
      I have placed SYSCARD3.pce in both the RetroPie BIOS folder and in the rom directory for PC Engine.
      I have placed my raw bin and cue files for Castlevania Rondo of Blood in the same folder. This is a verified working image using RetroArch on Windows.
      When I launch the cue file I get the black screen to choose which emulator to boot with (I have chosen mednafen pce fast as per the wiki) then I am returned to the rom selection screen in Emulation Station.
      I can launch the SYSCARD3.pce file from the rom list and it does boot and show the PC Engine CD BIOS 3.0 startup screen.

    Any idea what I am doing wrong?

    Will do. Which folder does it need to be in? In the wiki it says both the BIOS folder and the roms folder.

    Yes, this worked! I renamed the file in lower case syscard3.pce and placed it in the BIOS and roms folder for PC Engine Super CD games. Thanks for your help!
