Release Reicast

Im having now the Issue that my "Virtual Memory Card" in Reicast is full ^^, Is there a way to change the Cards somewhere?
found this on reddit.. not sure if it will help but here it is

Your virtual memory card (“VMU”) is full, so you either need to swap the vmu or delete saves in one of the vmus. To do this while playing a Dreamcast game, press and hold all 4 face buttons (a, b, c/x and d/y) and START at the same time, this will open the Dreamcast’s VMU manager where you can select from your 4 memory cards and delete saves to free up space.
I'll note that you'll only have four VMUs inserted if you've got jousticks in each port, because the VMU slot is in the joystick. I don't know how many joysticks Reicast simulates being plugged in.

ISTR you can get at the VMU manager by switching the system on without a game in then selecting it from the menu. I don't know how easy it is to get Riecast into that mode however.
I missed that reicast was ported to the Pyra, but it's a great news ! big thanks to our awesome serial-porter. Things happens days after days, this is great <3
You have got the VMU files within the folder reicast/.local/share/reciast

I recommend to copy the files to a new one wit different name an then delete the saved games in the original files. This way you don't lose any saved game, you just need to rename files again to acess older saved games.

In order to delete files is very simple bu not obvious. Run reicast and instead of selecting a game file just cancel. You will run the bios then and will be able to manage the VMU.
I did read the Info to late that i can activate a State Window whit "c" so maybe its time for another Dreamcast Video but now whit FPS?

And i wonder how much different there is between the Pandora (1ghz) Version and the Pyra Release, whe are still struggeling whit Audio Driver over CPU, so its allready a miracle whe get that playable Emulation, but i cant test on my Pandora as its a 700 mhz Device and my right Shoulderbutton Trigger is broken...

EDIT: To show FPS i need to change the cfg file, but what dos "C" show? something whit CPU, is it CPU Work then?
