What is the STV Roll-Up Pack?
The STV Roll-Up Pack List is a documentation of roms that can be placed on an SD card for a complete STV kit setup that's ready to use. It includes every game compatible with the Darksoft STV Multi, so you don’t have to scour the forums to find anything. I'll update my lists whenever new content is available.

How to Use
Format a microSD card to FAT32 using Windows, not Mac or Linux.
Extract the pack to it using 7-Zip, maintaining the folder structure. If your card is the I: drive for example, the layout must be exactly I:\games\game_XX\

Sound Files
If you’ve connected the audio wire, your multi will play an audio file when starting and completing a game load. I have included a set of audio files that you can choose from. To use them, make copies of your favorite sound clips and rename them to “START.wav” and “end.wav”. If you want to add your own clips, make sure they are in the correct format.

Changelog
2019-09-13 - Fixed LCD game selector list, thanks Jose Cruz! I rebuilt the "Joystick Controls Only" LCD list using his as the source.

2019-01-01 - Added Guardian Force De-Lag Patch - Thanks trap15 & sammargh!
2017-05-06 - Fixed LCD selector menu files – Thanks sk8er000!
Beta 2 - Added name.txt files for 43-49, 51, 52, 60, 61. These are just for reference and do not affect the LCD selector.
- Updated documentation: Added Game Selector Manual and an Updated Game List Spreadsheet
- Added several custom WAVs that I made for use as loading sounds
- Modified the game selector’s code to include all current releases. This is provided but must be updated manually.
- Included a version of the LCD Selector code with joystick games only, since most of us don’t own the special controls like mahjong control panels, print cards, etc.
Beta 1 - Initial release

Troubleshooting
The most common kit problem is SD card incompatibility. Test multiple cards before reporting problems. Format only as described above, every time you update your pack, before copying new files to it. "No SD Card Detected" probably means you didn't create a \games folder. It can also mean that your SD card isn't compatible or needs to be formatted correctly.[/spoiler]

A huge thank-you to everyone supporting ST-V:

Arcade-Projects forum members!

An extra special thank-you to the incredible members who put together a drive and pitched in to buy me an ST-V Multicart: Derick2k and jassin000 especially! Thank you to ekorz and jepjepjep as well! Without all of their generosity, this pack probably wouldn’t have materialized.

Are there extra files I need to include for that? If so, I'll get them added. I assume that it relies on the name.txt files for the display? If so, does it have the same character limit as the CPS2? Also, can I put spaces in the filenames? I will make fixing/organizing the name-files my next goal.


It looks like I need to add name files for: 43-49, 51, 52, 60, 61. Once I get an answer to the above questions, I'll start work on perfecting the names.

Update: Game names are stored in the LCD Selector's code, so these should all be working perfectly.

Update 2: I'm playing with some boot jingles and found a robot voice generator. Hence: https://clyp.it/okcium3p

I would really like to have a nice "Sega" sound file.

The one with what sounds like a female saying "SAYYY-Gaaa"

Maybe you could add a folder with several sound files that the user can select from and add them on there own.

Puyo Puyo Tetris has a pretty cool clip of a female saying "Sega" at bootup. The English and Japanese releases are a little different. Check them out at the beginning of these two clips.

Mitsu already has the traditional Sega voice in there, from the Genesis. I'm putting together a big collection of Sounds for the next update. I've got some cool stuff and will take any requests. I'll add those female Sega voices from Puyo Puyo today.

It looks like I need to update the game selector code with the latest games. I'll go through and do that and send it along to miisalo. I'll add that to the Documentation folder in the pack too.

Update: I only had to add Dynamite Deka and Super Major League to the selector code. I've sent that along to missalo.

I'm trying to decide if this is an improvement? https://clyp.it/ry1e03e3 :D

What are the exact specifications to use for WAVs -- 16 or 32-bit, etc? I have a huge Sound pack going in to the next update.

I would wait until you get your cart and test each sound or have someone help you test. It can be picky about sounds to play even if they seem to be in the correct format.

Like the original, no.

I guess that one could use the extra space left to locate the extra music. If it doesn't fit, it could be downsampled. In both cases you need to modify the code to playback music from a different location. It's a nice long hack. If anyone wants to give a go, I'll be glad to help :)

Is there any way the audio resources and playback code from the Saturn port of Batman Forever could be adapted over to the ST-V game? Those resources would use the stock ST-V sound hardware.
