    Let me first please start for apologizing for double posting if I did, I haven't seen anything here or anywhere that fixes my specific issue/setup. I am also very UN-SAVVY in regards to all this computer stuff, this is probably the most complicated thing I have faced (I got nes, snes, SMS, GEN, TGX16 all first try, but DC is proving to be too much for me!)

    I posted my issue on a different forum, and that was apparently the wrong place, they pointed me here, I am hoping someone can help or walk me through the steps...


    Steps to reproduce:

    1: downloaded nullDC_104_r50.7z
    2: place bios in data file
    3: rename bios to boot
    4: Launch nullDC

    Result: pop up error message reading "Unable to load drkPvr_Win32.dll Plugin, error level=-104". After clicking past error message I am directed to menu "Select Plugins". All drop downs are empty. After clicking "ok", there is a another error message "Unable to load Plugin, error level=-104" followed by "Unable to load plugins --- exiting". Then nullDC closes.


    What version of the product are you using? What build? What plugins?

    I use version: nullDC_104_r50.7z

    I use a Win32_Release-NoTrace build

    I use the following plugins:

    None appear in dropdowns, the config reasd as follows:

    Current_ExtDevice=nullExtDev_Win32.dll

    [nullDC_GUI]

    Fullscreen=0



    On what kind of system?

    My system specifications are as follows:

    Operating System: Win7 64-Bit
    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 740 @1.73GHz 1.73 GHz
    Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M
    Sound Card: *Edit me*
    Additional related hardware and/or software:


    Please provide any additional information below:
    I tried Downloading the C++ thingie
    I tried Downloading the DirectX 9.0c thingie
    I tried Downloading some other DirectX end thingie

    --I am really not very computer savvy, and this appears to be over my head, but since I can not carry my dreamcast around with me, I would really like to get this working!

    Over 2 days, over 100 views... No replies?

    Can someone at least explain to me why this is such a difficult question to answer?

    You need to update your DirectX. A link to the updater is somewhere in the Dolphin board.

    I am using the same version as the thread poster. Perhaps we error out because we are using 64bit Windows while the plugin has a very obvious "32bit" in the name.

    There have been 54 more revisions since the previous build in June of 2010. Please build once more to give the code page a more obvious feeling of being constantly updated. The issues we complain about may be outdated because of the revisions, but the average user only has access to r50.

    Check out the Dolphin Emulators' download page and perhaps you can copy it. It integrates with Google Code and automatically creates x86 and x64 bit builds when a new revision is posted.

    ==============

    One more error: The NullDCLoader outputs a black fullscreen when I attempt to load it from GameEx. I am using the suggested "NullDCLoader "[ROMPATH]\[ROMFILE]"" to load an image. Manually attempting to boot the loader through the command prompt does the same thing. The tested image works fine through nullDC_Win32_Release-NoTrace.exe.

    nulldcloader "c:/rom/dreamcast game (USA).cdi"
