  1. When I try that game it's like the computer opponent does nothing, do you know why?
  2. Yes I have 4 PCs with thru I have 2-4 player working in other games. Each Wangan has a unique ID, actually I believe if not they throw up some kinda error. I have seen Wangan's attract screen change to show 2-4Players available but when we start I don't see any option to start a multiplayer game, we all just end up in singleplayer. I might have had this working last year but I just can't remember now, although only one of these PCs is from that time, the rest were setup recently.
  3. For dual booting, EasyBCD is a tool that might be useful in some situations. I had some problems with Windows 10 dual boot and it helped me. Something to note about Windows 10 dual boots, on mine anyway, I have to restart to get the boot selection, if I shutdown it boots right into the OS without giving me the selection screen. I have a steering problem in Fast n Furious games, always goes to the right (I think maybe left), but other than that they do work for me on Windows 7 through Teknoparrot. Anyone have suggestions for 2-4 player driving games that work on Windows 7? I currently have Daytona, GTI Club 3, Mario Kart, Initial D8, Sega Rally 3. Wangan5 says it's ready for 2-4 players but I cannot figure out how to actually start a multiplayer game.
  4. I was having a problem when I tried to add games without internet it would crash. I believe the reason is that when it tries to grab the icon for the newly added game, it does not fail gracefully.
  5. [Arcade PC] FFB Arcade Plugin

    Oh so I'm not the only one that has that kinda problem. I posted about a similar issue long time ago but it seemed like it was some crazy one-off fluke that only happened to me. For me the problem(s) are not consistent, they don't always happen but fairly often. Best way I can describe it is at various times, sometimes when the game starts, sometimes after the game exits, my G29 wheel is sent into some kind of messed up FFB state. How messed up it is also varies, sometimes it's locked hard to the right (maybe left too I forget) and completely unusable until I power cycle the entire setup, reboot PC etc. Another example from last night so it's fresh in my mind still, it went into a state where it was not too strong but still trying to go left or right, depending on whether I'd passed the midpoint. It was still playable though, my friends just wanted 1 more races before the end of the night so I played like that rather than wait to reboot. Oh I cannot be 100% sure but I think it's all or mostly with Daytona 3, and I have a G29, running Teknoparrot latest on Windows 7. I wish I had better information to troubleshoot this, I'll try to keep better track of exactly what is going on when it happens.
  6. Anyone know how to start a multiplayer race on Wangan? I can get the attract screen to show 4players available but I cannot remember how to actually start a 2 or 4 player game. We just always end up in singleplayer. I just happen to setup Grid earlier tonight, and my "CONTROLLER SETUP" screen definitely had a "Wheel Axis" which I configured and then I tested the game.
  7. Anyone know why Daytona exits after a bit on the attract screen and/or how to prevent it? Runs the attract stuff for maybe 10 minutes then exits, seems to be a clean exit because there are no errors. I asked in another thread but it was quickly buried so I thought might as well try here.
  8. Anyone know why Daytona exits after a bit on the attract screen and/or how to prevent it? Runs the attract stuff for maybe 10 minutes then exits, seems to be a clean exit because there are no errors. I'd post in the Daytona thread but I have recently for another issue and it seems kinda dead, while this thread is kept alive by fighting :).
  9. I've been considering doing that for other uses, does it cause any activation problems? I don't even need to run 2 different Windows versions, I'd just like to have one mostly isolated from the other.
  10. Does anyone have detailed instructions on how to enter the test/service menu(s)? EDIT: I found the instructions on emuline youtube... ...and the DK2 thing in my old files. EDIT 2: I solved it, it's HDMI audio, once I switched to analog output Shell.exe works as it should. That's what changed, last time I played with this PC I was not using HDMI audio. But Shell.exe just flashes a black screen briefly then exits. I have the following error in a log file, a search revealed a couple other people that had it but no solution: "unable to get audio mixer line information" Still not sure how to enable panoramic attract mode. I know it's possible I've seen a video of someone's 4 player setup running it.
  11. I'm about a year out of date so I don't have much knowledge of improvements have been made in Teknoparrot. I was running Daytona 3 (aka Championship USA) standalone using whatever patches and such, is it now better to run it through Teknoparrot?
  12. Would you mind sharing your specific method for doing that? I have some idea but I'd be interested to hear how you do it, how you keep it organized, etc.
  13. I run Battle Gear 4 in an older Teknoparrot, I'll have to check the versions and the game version too. It works, but I have a problem with brake being stuck on and I had to do some workarounds. I don't have the PC right near me now.
  14. Besides Hyperspin, what would be a good simple frontend for mostly games that launch via Teknoparrot but also a few others? I'd wanna control it from the d-pad on a G29 wheel and it's going to be mostly driving games.
  15. Ok cool, I think I will have to make a separate Teknoparrot installation for each user to solve the controller's changing GUID issue, it's different for each user so the input mappings don't work when you log in as another user. Scripting could also help with this problem but a separate installation is easier. If I run into game specific stuff I might do as you did too, or even have one Teknoparrot install for each game as it only adds about 100Mb and I'm only planning to have about a dozen games. If I branch out later then I think at the very least I will make one Teknoparrot install for each type/genre of game. Thanks And Happy Birthday Soyabean too
