[Tuto] Shining force Cross Elysion (RingEdge): How to Install

Recommended Posts

Shining force Cross Elysion. (RingEdge)

Works fine on Window$ 10 (1809) and TeknoParrot 1.90, with shader.farc applied.

Works fine out of the box, as long as you apply the shader.farc files, otherwise you get black graphics glitches.

 

- Works only on NVIDIA (due to shaders)

shining_elysion.png

iccard.bin, iccard.txt

 

Both files in the root of c:?

 

I just figured out, that Shining Force Cross Elysion uses the same files, and overwrites them, corrupting the card for Shining force Cross Raid

 

Once you've created a card, you can not create a second one, use the original iccard.bin, iccard.txt files to create a new card.

 

So when you want to load a card from one or other game, save the files found in the root of c:

 

in a separate folder, and place the necessary files in the root of c: when needed for one or the other game.

 

This game uses your mouse or a touchscreen.

 

Configured the game for Directinput?

 

Configure it for keyboard use.

Somehow, in the TeknoParrot settings up, down, left, right are 90 degrees rotated so when you press up you go right.

 

Also in the beginning of the game the characters run to the left, wait a few moments, the first question you get is if you want a "training".

 

Press the buttons configured for up, down, left, right.

 

Use only digital inputs , as far as I know, both  analogue and digital controls configured "bites".

 

Quote:

  • Touch screen works, just use mouse or if you have touch screen, use that.

  • Multiplayer links but no modes are unlocked, feel free to hax!

  • If you use Digital movement, please LEAVE ANALOG UNBINDED!

  • Same thing other way around, or controls don't work.

 

Copy the shader.farc files and replace file inside "rom" folder.

IC Card Setup
Download these files (
iccard.bin, iccard.txt) and place in C: root.

Currently you cannot change or name your character.

 

On to the game .......

Executable file is, project_f-ringedge-release.exe

 

At the Sega screen press F2 to insert a card!

:ptdr:

Press IC Customize, multiple times

https://ibb.co/ZgzwhZy 
https://ibb.co/F4BTg3q

 

You have created a IC card, it takes you back to the SEGA screen, press F2 again to load the just created card.

 

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.

:very-good:

 

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 .....

Great tutorial, however, when I press "YES" (or No) on picture 4 , https://ibb.co/Bj1sn7g  the game takes me back to the SEGA logo screen. I did the exact steps in this tutorial but without any luck to get any green "Game Start" screen. Please help! :) 

Same here, any idea to solve?

I run the game with Gameloader All RH 347 and teknoparrot 281

 

Shining Force Cards.rar

Here is all you need.

A clean card to create your own.

And prepared cards for both games.

Just created not played at all.

Extract what you need to the root of C:

Remember ....

Or to create a new card with the clean card file.

 

The mouse cursor can be very far off when running the game at any other than the original resolution of 1280x720

Press around the character then you can see how far off the mouse click is detected.

I have no solution for that.

The mouse is completly out of wack even after a calibration in the test menu.

In the test menu the X Y position detection is correct but (in game) the mouse is still out of wack.

Thank you very, it works perfectly with your files for elysion - except for the controller on tecyhnoparrot - in fact up and down are reversed using the stick and controller digital button doesn't work (I'm not using xinput) - Now I need to figure out how to make this game works perfectly

 

For Cross Raid, I got the update mega link version 105 which size is 599 MB but it fail to load on technoparrot  no matter what I do. It fails to download the version without the update from the ipfs link https://ipfs.io/ipns/Qmb2NKRFJTK2zCcqCb7voCRg59CfFqEyFGsHaifocuwXkj

 

Could you please give me an advice on how to make it works - Do I need to download both version and apply the update or is it sufficient to use the v105 - I'm having a failed to launch message using technoparrot ? Is there a specific method to make it launch ?

 

Thank you very much for all the help you can provide, Appreciate it :)

You will need sfcr100.7z and sfcr105.7z

Unpack sfcr100.7z and after that sfcr105.7z in the same folder

Overwrite files and folders as needed

I had the same problem. You can fix that by going into the "UserProfiles" folder in your Teknoparrot folder and editing the ShiningForceCrossElysion.xml file. You need to find this part:

    <JoystickButtons>
      <ButtonName>Joystick Analog Y</ButtonName>
      <DirectInputButton>
        <Button>4</Button>
        <IsAxis>true</IsAxis>
        <IsAxisMinus>true</IsAxisMinus>
        <IsFullAxis>false</IsFullAxis>
        <PovDirection>0</PovDirection>
        <IsReverseAxis>false</IsReverseAxis>
        <JoystickGuid>2h7fa9e0-a136-11ea-8001-444557840000</JoystickGuid>
      </DirectInputButton>
      <InputMapping>Analog2</InputMapping>
      <AnalogType>AnalogJoystickReverse</AnalogType>
      <BindNameDi>Gamepad Y -</BindNameDi>
      <BindName>Gamepad Y -</BindName>
    </JoystickButtons>

 

And replace the analogtype line with this:

      <AnalogType>AnalogJoystick</AnalogType>

      <AnalogType>AnalogJoystick</AnalogType>

 

I had the same ploblem, I solved it starting the game with the "test menu" on and calibrating the analog stick.

I did it a really basic way using batch files and launching them throught RocketLauncher. It is working pretty fine but I have an issue, a TeknoParrot exception error is generated when closing game. Error window is closing pretty fast but I am asking myself if there's a way to ignore TeknoParrot erros?

 

Here is an example for my batch files:

@echo off
copy /y iccard.* C:\
start /w G:\Hyperspin\Emulators\TeknoParrot\TeknoParrotUi.exe --profile=ShiningForceCrossRaid.xml
copy /y C:\iccard.* .\
del C:\iccard.*

 

Batch file and iccard files are in game folder (where exe is), I simply copy files to C:\ before launching game, I'm asking to wait for TeknoParrot to close (I suppose that's what generated the exception error) then I copy back files to game folder. To conclude I delete files located on C:\ (just to clean things).

 

I am sure there is a better way to do it (like using RocketLauncher Pre-Launch and Post-Launch functions I suppose) but it's a way too complex for me by now. Again, anyone is having an idea on how to ignore TeknoParrot errors please?
