  1. Merci beaucoup mate! That's sorted it for me.

    Ah, righto. Yeah, I'm trying to do this with the 'special' version...

    Where's the freeplay option you unmark in TP? I can't see any option to either tick or untick in freeplay in 'game settings' or 'controller setup'. I can get into the game's test menu with 1 on my keyboard but nothing I press will insert a coin.
  4. Is that a typo? That's how you normally switch screens in Windows. If I hit alt+tab on the calibration screen it takes me back to my PC's desktop.

    There's nothing on the screen for me saying freeplay, and it still says says credits 0, but I'm wondering if the issue I'm having now is that thing where the game doesn't let you play it if it thinks it's a time of day when the arcade's closed, seeing as how I'm not getting that little animated thing telling me to insert coin anymore. I'm going to try firing it up again later and seeing if I can get in-game.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I did wonder if those files might help. Initially I just tried placing them in the same folder as the EXE that was created by someone here on the forum. This didn't change anything, the game would still boot I could navigate the menu with my keyboard but, pad wouldn't work and I couldn't credit up. I tried again using the start CMD file and got the message about dnsapi.app missing from AMD blah blah blah and same thing. Next I tried copying the Nez files into the AMDaemon folder and also copied and pasted the dnsapi.app I had in my app folder over the one there and tried again and now my controller works, hurrah, so progress! I still can't actually play a game though, it now takes me to a different looking login screen to the one I was getting before, (where the game kept showing some animated prompt for me to insert a coin) there's some grey Japanese text that comes up and then it goes back to the title screen. I tried running the text through Google translate, but it's just utter gibberish ("During the time of the tare, the pre is the first to be used" - uh, whut...?). So, yeah, one step closer...
  7. Teknoparrot Loader | Arcade PC

    Guys, I've a question about an older TP game - I've only ever played Batman in Teknoparrot with an Xbox 360 pad, just 'cause for whatever reason I've never bothered using my wheel and the FFB Plugin with it. But I finally gave it a try like that the other day (plays so much better with a wheel!) There's a bit in one of the Joker missions though where you need to use the keyboard numberpad to input a code. When I played with an Xbox 360 pad this worked without issue, I just used my keyboard and input the code. Now that I've swapped over to a wheel, the keystrokes don't register and I can't complete the mission. Is this some kind of an Xinput Vs Dinput issue? Has anyone got a workaround? Cheers in advance. Edit: NVM, think I've found a solution I'll have to try next time I get my wheel out.
  8. Same reason I'm checking this section out...
  9. Hrrrm, that's weird, I left a message yesterday to say thanks for the this and it's disappeared. Anyway, thanks for sharing it mate, greatly appreciated!

    No dice. If I just try double clicking clicking on the Hodzero EXE I get some message about combase.dll being missing. A quick Google is revealing no answers on how to sort that out, just dodgy sites that want you to download their bloatware. I'm 99% certain the fact it's missing is a Windows 7 vs Windows 10 thing. I'm not a Patreon anymore, but I thought I'd try and run it through TP just to see if that threw up any errors. Before TP even shuts me down for not having a serial key, the AMDameon.exe throws up an error about 'the procedure entry point DnsQueryEX could not be located in the dynamic link library dnsapi.dll.' So yeah... don't think this game's going to happen for me. Guess I'm just going to have to sit this one out until my old PC bites the dust and I'm forced to get a new one with Windows 10. If anyone's got any bright ideas to get this running though I'll all ears...

    Cool, will give that a go once it's finished downloading (probably be done by tomorrow because of the whole having to wait between each part of the download)

    Hey gang, can any Windows 7 Patreons confirm if House of the Dead SD works OK on that OS? I gave up my Patreon status about 2 years ago, so will have to wait until this becomes free to test it out.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Initially I was launching it with the .bat file, but I realised there was the start.cmd one to use awhile back. Unfortunately neither that or the EXE that was created make any difference. In a last ditch attempt to try something different I moved the game off my hard drive to an external one with the volume label E:, but same old same old... Game boots, but not in free play, unable to progress past the login screen.

    Yep, did all that, you can see it in the info above I copied and pasted from my Sega tools.ini Yep, used the TP that came with it to configure the pad and use the EXE in the app folder to launch. Hrrrm, looks like I'm just destined to not get this one working. Thanks for the help and suggestions though fellas, I do appreciate it 👍
