[Tuto] TeknoParrot, BudgieLoader, Gameloader ALL RH: explanation and how to install (and such things)

Recommended Posts

First of all I would like to THANK all the programmers and other people involved in these "projects"

 

All the game Icons are made by @POOTERMAN right here on this site.

 

He puts a lot of effort in it to make TeknoParrot and other loaders "complete" !

Otherwise we all would have a text interface, a DOS prompt to work from !

 

It would be "nice of us" TeknoParrot users, to thank him for his awesome game icons.

So if you see a new post with game icons give it a thanks ! 

It is just a click in the right corner of his posts ........but it could mean much, a simple thank you !

 

A big thank you to, Reaver, NTAuthority , Avail, and all the other people involved in this scene.

without their "skills" we all would have nothing.

And I have to say version 1.90 is a big step forward, a milestone !

 

And of course @Nezarn thank you, for all the AMD GPU shader fixes you made.

https://github.com/Nezarn/ABCShaderfix

 

THERE ARE MAYOR CHANGES SINCE VERSION 1.93 !!!

Because of the directory and file structure changes of the newer versions of Teknoparrot.

(1.0.0.XXX) VERSIONS AND ABOVE

 

You got the latest OpenParrot.dll, OpenParrotKonamiLoader.exe, OpenParrotLoader.exe in the OpenParrotWin32 folder ?

You got the latest OpenParrot64.dll, OpenParrotLoader64.exe in the OpenParrotx64 folder ?

You got  the latest Opensegaapi.dll in the TeknoParrot SUB folder ?

I got 24 files in the TeknoParrot SUB folder.

TeknoParrot.

Official site.

https://teknoparrot.com/

 

Updates for / and TeknoParrotGUI (1.0.0.XXX) VERSIONS AND ABOVE) can be found here:

https://github.com/teknogods/TeknoParrotUI/releases

 

Older versions,

http://doom4ever.com/__Doomflash/TP/

https://ibb.co/DMDvJbs

 

Both sites could give a "Dangerous" warning, we all know better than that.

 

https://ibb.co/j5YJ60F

 

This part is information about version prior to version 1.93 !!

 

Why does it give a warning ?

 

TeknoParrot, and Gameloader All RH changes game / application memory on the fly / jit , to make the game run.

Window$ does not like that ?

Did something change in the memory management of Window$ 10 1809  ?

Is that the reason loaders run games better on version 1803 (april 2018) of Window$ 10 ?

 

As mentioned in the TeknoParrot readme.txt file, Teknparrot needs .NET 4.5.2

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42642

 

This part is for versions past 1.93 !

The GUI of TeknoParrot has a new naming convention, from now on it is x.x.x.xxx 

1.0.0.125 is the latest version as of 17 April  2019

 

Download the base version of TeknoParrot.

And add / overwrite the newest updates, to your TeknoParrot folders.

Updates for / and TeknoParrotGUI can be found here:

https://github.com/teknogods/TeknoParrotUI/releases

 

You got the latest OpenParrot.dll, OpenParrotKonamiLoader.exe, OpenParrotLoader.exe in the OpenParrotWin32 folder ?

You got the latest OpenParrot64.dll, OpenParrotLoader64.exe in the OpenParrotx64 folder ?

You got  the latest Opensegaapi.dll in the TeknoParrot SUB folder ?

I got 24 files in the TeknoParrot SUB folder.

The newer titles are Patreon only !

"This code requires valid serial number to run. Program will be terminated."

Patreon is a service to give money and help developers. 

If you subscribe, you can access certain features or games in advance.

You need to buy a serial to run that game, which can be obtained here.

 https://www.patreon.com/Teknogods 

(or wait until the game comes out of Patreon)

 

 

Do not forget to set your game internet connection per game in TeknoParrot.

IP address, DNS, gateway, et cetera. 

Windows key+R, cmd, ip config /all

 

Check your firewall for connections which games try to make, determine yourself which can connect to the (inter)net.

http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/faq/id-3114787/open-firewall-ports-windows.html

 

 

Run TeknoParrotUI.exe as administrator.

 

Other recommended files are.

 

DirectX 9C 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34429

 

Some older games need .NET 3.5 (NESICAxLive / TaitoX)

http://www.damirscorner.com/blog/posts/20170203-OfflineInstallationOfNet35InWindows10.html

 

.NET 3.5 Error code: 0x800F081F ?

Place microsoft-windows-netfx3-ondemand-package.cab file in root of C:

 

And run this as administrator in DOS box.

 

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

 

 

Some games needs Visual C++

 

https://www.techpowerup.com/download/visual-c-redistributable-runtime-package-all-in-one/

 

Install them all, 32 and 64 bit.

 

Onto TeknoParrot / BudgieLoader and the games it tries to load.

 

BudgieLoader is a part of TeknoParrot, specific to load Lindbergh arcade based games.

Some games need dumped / cracked .exe files to run, sometimes they are not included in the release, search !!!

(front page is a good place to start).

 

TeknoParrot / Budgieloader.

 

So if you see a DOS box with Budgieloader, it is a Lindbergh game, which needs to run in a Linux Montavista Virtual Machine in Window$ 10.

 

For the people who can not find Lindbergh games, check this link.

 

 Dumps Lingbergh décryptés (le jour ou Teknoparot permet de lancer les jeux):

 

Bin files for Lindbergh can be extracted with 7Zip and / or PowerISO.

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

https://www.poweriso.com/

 

The errors of PowerIso and 7zip can be ignored.

 

It has to do with Linux symbolic links which do not yet exist during extraction, can not be done on a Windows filesystem.

 

(YES, there is a difference if you answer No to all, or Yes to all)

(I do not yet know, what the correct answer is to extract the files, No to all, works for me)

 

Wait up a video, thanks to @trouby

 

To make everything to everybody clear, After Burner Climax is a Lindbergh game

http://www.system16.com/hardware.php?id=731

 

Check the other systems and their game titles, so you understand which machine TeknoParrot tries to run !

TeknoParrot "tries" to load games for Lindbergh,Ring Egde / Wide (2), Europa R, eX Board and Taito X / Nesica systems !!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taito_Type_X

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NESiCAxLive

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EX-Board

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Sega_arcade_system_boards#Sega_Lindbergh

 

 

I personally get better results with GameLoader All RH with Taito X / Nesica games.

 

You can use the latest version of Gameloader All RH.

 

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

 

It does not work ?

Fall back to version mentioned in this "manual" 

GameLoader All RH ?

GameLoader All RH can work in conjuction with TeknoParrot.

It can also load "problematic" games that TeknoParrot can not load at all or incorrectly.

I prefer Gameloader All RH, it runs the games at the correct resolution, without going "over the edge" like TeknoParrot does.

It has also a function called NesicaUnlocker, it removes the red "Nesica offline" messages and can unlock extra features of the game.

 

Just found this tool, read the readme file included.

 

Thanks @EmuAl

 

I use this inteface for my TaitoX /NESICAxLive games, works fine for the moment.

http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=870.0

 

Leave question and comments in the proper thread if it is not GameLaoder ALL RH / NESICAxLIve  AND TeknoParrot combined usage related !

 

 

 

 

 

Files need by games for NESICAxLive / Taito X.

 

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=21254

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=5555

 

How to configure Gameloader All RH for games ?

 

Check this video !


So the files needed to run Taito / NesicsaXLive games with GameLoader All RH, are just a few.

 

In the game folder you will need:

Game Loader All RH.exe

Game Loader Config.exe

Game Loader Installer

iDmacDrv32.dll and / or iDmacDrv64.dll 

(sometimes a specific version for a specific game, as a example School of Ragnarok)

At the Gameloader All RH front page.

Search (ctrl+f) for the word school.

 

 

In the root of C: a folder called RFID.

With RFIDGod.dll and RFIDGod_inject.exe in it.

And RFIDGod_inject.exe in the root of of the game if needed.


Back to the TeknoParrot Topic !

Once again, Intel and AMD IGPU's ,integrated graphics chips on the same die as the cpu will not work for TeknoParrot.

AMD video cards can become problematic, need patches for the games to work correctly.So it is recommended to use a NVIDIA chipset based videocard.

 

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.

 

Enjoy!

: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 .....
