  1. Was really hoping I could get this to work for an 800x600 resolution on a CRT. 640x480 would be fine though...that doesn't seem to work either. I DID mark the file read-only after editing. Does the dome fix get rid of the ability to go lower res? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  2. So updated TeknoParrot last night via auto update. While the steer to the right problem is corrected, the digital direction inputs still don't function properly when mapping with a joystick and they are all still labeled backwards Proper throttle control is still impossible as well. I think mapping for throttle up/down would be pretty great. I understand these things can be quite complicated to correct. I will say the game is still a lot of fun despite these things. Just in case anyone wants to see what I am talking about, map your keyboard arrow keys to the digital direction inputs in the teknoparrot setup. If I remember the label in teknoparrot correctly (not at the computer) Up is actually left Down is actually right Left is actually down Right is actually up
  3. So I spent a good amount of time playing with After Burner Climax last evening. It's running beautifully on windows 7. Ran into the control issues everyone has mentioned. What ended up working best for me was mapping the actual analog axis X and Y just to my steering wheel on my arcade cabinet. Cleared up the issue of steering right. Just to note: initially I had my joystick just mapped to the analog axis. There was no steering right issue at all with this, but the Y axis was also not properly inverted as it should be with a flight game. I think mapping these analog axis to anything actually analog you may have would solve the issue. Probably has something to do with proper analog centering. (I did try the editing of the XML file spelled out in the tutorial here. Didn't seem to work for me.) For some reason, the digital direction mappings don't like being mapped to the actual directions of my digital joystick, so i mapped them to directional keys of the keyboard. I then used joytokey to translate the directions of my joystick to the directional keyboard keys I have mapped in teknoparrot. At this point, I discovered the labeling of the directions in the Teknoparrot UI are actually backwards. In Teknoparrot, Up/Down are actually Left/Right and Left/Right are actually Up/Down. Once all of this was figured out, and using joytokey, I was able to get proper flight stick controls with the Y axis being properly inverted and no constant steer to right! Now the only thing left to sort is the throttle lever. It would be great to have some sort of analog emulation for this similar to what is found in mame (like being able to map inc/dec). In the meantime, is there anyway to map a mouse to controls in Teknoparrot? I'm wondering if using my second joystick and translating it to a mouse axis if I could get proper throttle control. Sorry for the long winded rant, but maybe some of this info will help others.
  4. It appears the mega addresses for After Burner Climax do no work anymore in mega downloader. Any recommends?
