Drag and drop ID8ResChange into your ID8 folder.

Open the program and change resolution, If you have problems with this one, use the old changer above.

I prefer it myself.


AMD GPU fixes thanks to @Nezarn




InitialD Arcade Stage Launcher/Card Editor 2.15


Usable in conjunction with Teknoparrot, till version 1.92 

English translation pack. (partial translation)



Tachometers guide.




With Initial D8 Arcade Stage Infinity, TeknoParrot will open two DOS boxes, one to start the game.


And one for picodeamon to generate a response key for the game.


If you get a red error box which has Japanese text and the word IC in it, press change view to skip the error.


Do not forget to set you network settings correctly in Teknoparrot. (per game). 


IP Address, DNS, Gateway , et cetera.

Windows key+ R, cmd, ipconfig /all


Start the game, enjoy.




I hope that this tutorial helps other people out.

It takes you a few moments to read, but it took me all night to figure it out.

When you get the game working, thanks to this "manual", please give a thanks at this post.



And a BIG thanks for the people who originally uploaded the games, we all can enjoy (if you do it right) !!!

And of course all the people involved in, the game loaders and JVS I/O emulation applications we use, and all the people I "forgot".


Also look at the posts below, some members / people add helpful information, thank them also .....

None of the links work for the updates and fixes. Will these updated soon?

All tested and work

You need Megadownloader for encrypted links


mega://enc2?   => for file
mega://fenc2?  => for folder

You need Mega Downloader 1.7
