Recommended Posts

I use this tool to link my XInput joystick to my mouse, it makes the game so much more enjoyable.

I use these settings:

Does it also work with a keyboard ?

You could try.

 

I have not tried this one:

You can start antimicro.exe, and minimize it.

Play.exe in the Super Monkey Ball Ticket Blitz folder is the executable file to start the game.

 

Coin-up is at back button on joystick

Start is start. :P

Left analogue stick is steering.

Right analogue stick press, is Escape / end game.

 

After playing Super Monkey Ball Ticket Blitz, you can quit the antimicro.exe application again, lower right corner, near your Window$ clock.

 

To make it easier on yourself next time, make a batch file to start both .exe with a few mouse clicks.

You can make your own Super Monkey Ball Ticket Blitz short cut icon here:

Use the above picture.

 

Maybe the TeknoParrot team can take a look at it (the source code) and implement the needed parts of the source code and add it to TeknoParrot ?

 

Enjoy!

 

I hope that this tutorial helps other people out.

It takes you a few moments to read, but it took me a while 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 .....

@boi_this_account_sucks_2 

gametest.bat, to get in test mode, there you can set settings, assign test and service buttons to navigate the menu's, not sure if settings are saved.

@Gwyllion

Run antimicro (and assign buttons) everytime if you want to play with joystick, minimize.

Run the game standalone, with game.bat, enjoy !!

TP says it is supported, but this game was never added to the list.

Can't run it in 1080p, I tried to set the resolution to 1920 x 1080 in mxGetHwInfo.ini but nothing changed, neither with game.bat nor with Play.exe. The game starts automatically in 1280 x 720, can someone help me?
Also, is there a Free-Play mode where you don't need to use coins? I checked in gametest.bat but I didn't find anything related, the "Amusement mode" just skips the Continue countdown at the end of a level.

Hum...the only dump I could find for this doesn't have play.exe or play.bat.  It has aging.bat and game.bat. The game runs but no xInput support at all.  No sound either.  The only keys on the keyboard that do anything are F11 which quits the game and END which pops up a message saying Tickets Are Empty Call Attendant.

I have the game running just fine however, the sound is EXTREMELY low. How can I boost the game volume?

Secondly, how do I get antimicro to load the right profile automatically when I run the game? I have it working when I click on prjMonket_tv_final.exe but that doesn't open the game fullscreen no matter what resolution i set in the ini file.

If I run Game Loader RH, the game loads full screen, but then antimicro settings don't work. I tried pointing it to the game exe and the game loader exe but it doesn't work.

I jsut added antimicro to start before running the prjMonket_tv_final.exe from inside the game.bat

 

Also i did an ahk file to be run after the bat from rocketlauncher which auto raises the volume is needed, but it really does is to press the rais volume key 6 times.

For me the keys always had to be pressed with the ALT also pressed before

 

so

ALT+F10 for credits

ALT + F9 start

ALT + pgUp/pgDn for vol+/-

 

Also used antimicro to bind the HotasX joystick to it which wortks great. Also G29 worked with pedals if your that guy ;D

Thank you for that... the only issue left is fullscreen. The game only opens in a small window.

Thanks to everyone for their comments! I spend some time but I finally succeeded. So I have modified existing Xpadder profile on dump to use my X360 controller. As I can't figure out how to correctly stroke (send) keys using an AHK script, I simply mapped Alt+Pgup to D-Pad Up and Alt+PgDwn to DPadDwn. Everything is working fine now.

 

I can confirm, editing  mxGetHwInfo.ini doesn't have any effect, resolution isn't changed, anyway it is working fullscreen as it for me, so it's ok.
