[Tuto] House of the Dead 4: Alternative install, enable second player.

Recommended Posts

This procedure is probably not needed anymore since Teknoparrot 1.0.0.140 !!!

According to the changelog:

- [Reaver] [TeknoParrot] House of the Dead 4 now has the hidden cursor.

- [Reaver] [TeknoParrot] The House of the Dead 4 now throws grenades with the mouse 3.

 

 

Still does not work ?

You want to add your own cursors ?

 

Keep reading.

 

House Of The Dead 4 (Lindbergh)

Works fine on Window$ 10 (1803) and TeknoParrot 1.86 (straight loaded)

I run it with GameLoader (0.3.2.7) and TeknoParrot 1.81 X-MAS Special.

 

Run HOTD4_MouseFix.exe as administrator.

Run GameLoader All RH as administrator.

the_house_of_the_dead_4_by_pooterman-dc801qh.png

Edit 14-02-2019

 

The fault in "version 1" of these instructions was:

I forgot to mention,

Run HOTD4_MouseFix.exe as administor.

Run Gameloader All RH.exe as administrator. 

 

I got House Of The Dead 4 working with Gameloader All RH !

 

DOES NOT RUN CORRECTLY ON 1.88 or higher.
(as far as I know, just tested it on version 1.90 no go !

 

So run 1.81 X-MAS Special !

 

Just played it to the "end", "James", I won't spoil it ....

 

I can get it to work with the mouse ,crosshair, dead centre.

I have no idea how to configure it for a second player, second mouse on 1 system.

At the moment,  I can connect a second mouse to the PC, Ds_Diag sees it as a second device.

But in game, both mice, control the player 1 crosshair. 

And I am missing the sound effects of the guns and zombies.

There is only music and dialogue.

 

OK, here is my documentation to get it working.

 

I use a three button mouse a keyboard and a wireless XBox 360 controller, 

to get the mouse working to aim, shoot, reload and throw grenades.

It should also be possible with only a keyboard and mouse, use Direct Input in TeknoParrot Emulation settings.

For Xbox 360 controller input use XInput in TeknoParrot Emulation settings.
 

Disable the headphone outputs of the Xbox 360 controllers in Window$ 10.

Set the default output to the correct audio output device.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWX4WxMkDxk

Otherwise the Xbox 360 controllers switch the audio output to their headphone outputs everytime.

Extract the HODT4 .bin file with 7zip or PowerISO


https://www.7-zip.org/
https://www.poweriso.com/

 

Then you need these files.

 

Characters look corrupted ?
Use the shader fix files, place in HOD4/disk0/fs
http://www.emuline.org/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=4729


Files needed for the test menu, place in HOD4/disk0/elf

(HOD4/disk0/elf/hod4testM_HD.elf)
http://www.emuline.org/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=4730

 

GameLoader All RH, place the three .exe files in HOD4/disk0/elf/
https://mega.nz/#!4l0EFSDZ!So_xejXzSQEjDaqs6eeSaMW5TYC85jPPlRIzlXdGcGk

 

Enable second player.

Just open the .elf file with any HEX editor, go to file offset 0x2D5827 and replace 0x74 by 0xEB That's all

Thanks to @argonlefou

No, this will not work with two mice connected !

Not sure if it works with a Dolphin bar, and two Nintendo Wii controllers, or "light guns". (I can not check)

 

 

Warning about "virus" ? (before version 0.3.2.4)

Edit the file TTX.ini in C:\Users\"Your User Name"\ AppData\Roaming\Game Loader All RH\

And change

Warning = Agree

 

Seeing green version number of Gamleoader All RH at bottom of screen ?

Edit the file setting.ini in C:\Users\"Your User Name"\AppData\Roaming\Game Loader All RH

and change:

[FileVersion] Show=0


Different resolution hod4M.elf files, place in HOD4/disk0/elf/

Use the one needed for the native resolution of your monitor / TV.
http://www.mediafire.com/file/37k3y387vjwgm7u/2+-+HOTD4+game.exe+for+Game+Loader+All+RH.rar

 

Read the readme.txt files included in the compressed files !

 

Out of this thread, thanks to 7zxkv.

 

 

First open 2 - HOTD4 game.exe for Game Loader All RH with 7Zip.

In your HOD4/disk0/elf folder change the extension of you original hod4M.elf to hod4M.elfo

 

Can not see extensions of your files ?

https://www.thewindowsclub.com/show-file-extensions-in-windows

 

Drag the correct resolution hod4M.elf from 7Zip into your HOD4/disk0/elf folder.

Choose the one with the correct native resolution for your monitor.
 

For the Gameloader All RH  to work, you must:

 

1. Put the 3 exe in the folder of a game, in this case, HOD4/disk0/elf

 

2. Launch the Game Loader Installer.exe file (do it once)

 

You will get a Virus warning to see, FAKE !!

5c461d5c47c32-Warning1-jpg-55e355f790fe3
 

(Old news, not anymore since version 0.3.2.3 of GameLoader ALL RH)

3. Go to C: \ Users \ USER NAME \ AppData \ Roaming \ Game Loader All RH \ TTX.ini


4. Edit TTX.ini and change the line 

 

[Ignore]
Warning= Agree

 

5. Run Game Loader Installer.exe once again, and install the necesary files

 

6. Run the Game Loader Config.exe file, follow the instructions in the video below

 

On to the next step.
This video shows how to config GameLoader All RH for HOTD4.

HOTD4_MouseFix.zip can be found here, place in HOD4/disk0/elf/
http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,149714.msg1674784.html#msg1674784

 

Updated version thanks to @argonlefou

 

Somebody asked me to update the HOD4_mouseFix to play with the latest version of TP with enhanced resolution, so as I updated DemulShooter latelly, here it is :

 

Tested with:

TeknoParrotUI - 1.0.0.226
Ope
nParrotWin32 - 1.0.0.93
OpenParrotx64 - 1.0.0.93
OpenSegaAPI - 1.0.0.118
TeknoParrot - 1.0.0.17

 


HOTD_MouseFix_v1.0.1.zip

 

"HOTD4_MouseFix.exe" can be start minimalized in the task bar by running the command : "HOTD4_MouseFix.exe -minimized".

 

Crosshair mouse cursors can be found here.
http://www.rw-designer.com/gallery?search=crosshair+cursors&by=new
The filename has to be CrossHair.cur
This file needs to be installed in disk0/elf/sv

 

Onto the next step.

In Game Loader Config on the Update rate Tab, uncheck Update rate mouse cursor hide.

On the Loader Settings 1 Tab, click on Select Folder, and link it to your TeknoParrot folder location.

This should start TeknoParrot.

 

1. In TeknoParrot go to "EMULATION SETTINGS" and uncheck "Use Mouse for gun Games".  
That way you can set whatever keyboard key you want for START, TEST and SERVICE.
  

2. Go to HOTD4 game settings, set your START, TEST, SERVICE keys in "input Mapping" and check "General - OffscreenReload Hack".

Others options are not important so do as you wish.


3. Make sure you link the correct path to hod4M.elf in TeknoParrot.

.....\HOD4\disk0\elf\hod4M.elf for game mode.
......\HOD4\disk0\elf\hod4testM_HD.elf for testmode.

 

4. Now just run "HOTD4_MouseFix.exe" before starting the game.

"HOTD4_MouseFix.exe" can be start minimalized in the task bar by running the command : "HOTD4_MouseFix.exe -minimized".

 

Configure your game settings in TeknoParrot for House Of The Dead 4.

 

Onto the next step.

Demulshooter:

https://github.com/argonlefou/DemulShooter/releases

 

DemulShooter needs.
.NET 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/install/dotnet-35-windows-10

 

Do you get error 0x800f081f, like I did ?

Here is the solution.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHQqb7IOHZE


https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=1322778262904003837

 

Copy the file microsoft-windows-netfx3-ondemand-package.cab to the root of C:

 

At the Command prompt (run as admin) paste this text, it will install .NET 3.5 if you have error 0x800f081f

 

Dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /source:C:\ /LimitAccess

 

 

DOES NOT RUN CORRECTLY ON 1.88 or higher !

 

So run 1.81 X-MAS Special !

 

My settings which work for me, on window$ 10 1803 (April) revision, and TeknoParrot 1.81 XMAS Special, XInput joysticks.

https://ibb.co/3mq6m8g
https://ibb.co/Z29118Y
https://ibb.co/RSXDrrz
https://ibb.co/34zSNMf

 

Onto the next step.

TeknoParrot still shows the Window$ mouse cursor ?

You can use GameLoader All RH (0.3.X.X) in conjunction with TeknoParrot (1.93 any version above) to suppress the Window$ mouse cursor.

"Update rate mouse cursor hide", enable and set to 0.

https://ibb.co/BjNLTxJ
https://ibb.co/dGnHxKH

 


Onto the next step.

 

This step is probably optional !


Demulshooter 8.5.2 can be found here.


http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,149714.msg1674095.html#msg1674095

 

Here is the DemulShooter Wiki.
https://github.com/argonlefou/DemulShooter/wiki

 

I extracted the DemulShooter files in HOD4/disk0/elf

 

Launch Ds_Diag.exe and change, select a device at the top, it should be your Xbox 360 controller.

Move your mouse it should change the raw input values, test your mouse buttons.

In DemulShooter choose your P1 Device, it should be your Xbox 360 controller.

5c461ae813184-HOD4-Ds-Diag-jpg-58b0a45c0

5c461ae70b595-HOD4-Demul-Shooter-Setting

On to the next steps.


7. Launch HOTD4_MouseFix.exe as administrator.

 

8. Launch Game Loader All RH.exe as administrator.


Wait a few moments, you get a black screen, with green v0.3.2.4 at the bottom.

 

Patients ......

 

Right mouse click is start or 1 on keyboard, or start on the joystick ?

 

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 .....

After clicking the game loader installer, nothing happens. What should I do?

 

Also, using the resolution patched elf results in the pre-rendered cutscenes to run in 4:3 aspect ratio or did I do something wrong?

 

Edit: Got the installer to work but the mousefix is not working at all.

Even after doing exactly as shown on that video, mouse doesn't work, at all.

 

If I disable mouse input in tekno parrot settings, only keyboard works. Nothing else works.

Not sure if it works with a Dolphin bar, and two Nintendo Wii controllers, or "light guns". (I can not check)

 

I can confirm, here a video with same apps than you

 

I have tried, it works, with 2 players (and 1 dolphin bar), dolphinbar in mode 4, but no crosshair, the cursor follow only the mouse, not the joysticks.

If you want crosshair you must use dolphin bar in mode 2, but if you want play with 2 palyers you need 2 dolphin bar (1 for each wiimote).

No, I have played with 2 wiimote but only 1 dolphinbar (like in all game), or you are saying 2 dolphinbar for 2 crosshair ?

If you want see the crosshair you must use the dolphin bar in "mode 2" (in this way you don't use Touchmote).

Then, in "mode 2" you must use 2 dolphin bar (1 for each wiimote) if you want play with 2 players.

I don't know what's the problem with this game, it only works with XInput enabled, which is nice if you knew where you are shooting. For enabling the crosshair (I change the cursor icon) I enable EnableMouseGun, and the mouse does everything except shooting, no matter what I set up in Controller Settings, it's hard coded to LMB: Reload, MMB: Granades, RMB: Start

 Hey for the 2 player modded exe you are providing... is that the hex edit LingLang mentions in his tutorial?

 

"Enable second player.

Just open the .elf file with any HEX editor, go to file offset 0x2D5827 and replace 0x74 by 0xEB That's all

Thanks to @argonlefou"

 

I tried hex editing a modified EXE for resoulution of 1920x1080 with no success. Can someone provide a 2P hex edited Gameloader EXE 1920x1080? please
