Sega Tri-force game emulations

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was wondering if anyone has been able to find a good way to emulate Sega Tri-force games (a joint project between Sega, Nintendo and Namco). 

Apparently the developers of Dolphin incorporated support for this back in the day when the emulator first started but it has since been abandoned. 

 

There's only around two dozen games ever released but most of them are timeless arcade classics like Mario Kart Arcade GP 1 & 2.

By the way guys, I worked out a way to play Mario Kart 2 GP perfectly:

 

Add the game onto classic Dolphin and then click edit code then add:

Thanks man, added 3 fun games to the collection, work fine out of the box, but a bit of rocket launcher "crap" around it.

I extracted just the emulators, and roms and all 3 2 run fine. 

BTW, all the files in this package are set to read only !

The ISO contained in this package of Mario kart GP is the same as Mario Kart GP 2, so twice the same file.

 

I made shortcuts to start the game directly. 

 

Make a shortcut to your Dolphin executable

Right click the shortcut and click properties

Now put the following string into the "Target" Box:

"[Path to your Dolphin.exe]" -b -e "[Path to your game rom]"

-b = makes the Dolphin loader / emulator close on game close. (escape)

-e = Execute specific ROM.

Without brackets but with quotation marks.

The Tri-force board only had a handful of games - most of them are card, sports and racing games. Out of the 6-7, Mario Kart GP 1 & 2 + F-Zero are the best ones. The 2 virtua Striker games have never been emulated successfully as far as I know. Perhaps you could try and see how you go. What launcher did you use to launch the included games? I used Dolphin the Tri-force mod.

I found it a slow methodical procedure to get the hang of it.  there is a trick to it, getting both mario kart games working  and also u will have to use different versions of tri force dolphins  to get all the 'working games' working.

the soccer one is gd but its buggy,  theres no improvement, no one has done anything since early 00s.

 i should make a video on it.  look and see type thing.

Thanks pal. That would be great if you could make a video and specify which versions you use that work.

Tri-Force only had a handful of games and besides the two Mario Kart GP games, only F-Zero and the Virtual Soccer games are worth playing.

Yeah you are right it's a bit of a hassle and after while sometimes people forget which to use. 

How did you get F-Zero and Virtual Soccer to work? Care to share the emulators & roms you used?

I really appreciate your help. 

Could you upload the version of Dolphin which works for F-Zero and the one that works separately with Virtua Striker games? It would be good for others who are interested to have.

Once again, much appreciated.

Mario 2 also, use the link for Mario 1 posted a few posts back.                       

Extract the files from the google drive post, and separate the loaders and roms for each loader / game combo in their own folders, works fine for me.                    Thanks for your initial post ! :very-good:

F-Zero AX ISO

GAME ID: GFZJ8P


Dolphin emu recognizes the Game, but it's not bootable.

If you load the game into Dolphin Emu's game list, it will be called VirtuaStriker2002.

Don't be confused because of that. The Game ID's prefix (GFZ) proves it's a F-Zero Game.

 

From Dolphin wiki:

Broken

Due to unemulated features that the game relies upon, F-Zero AX is not playable even on the Triforce branch.

It is possible to enter in-game through the use of certain gecko codes, however there are limited controls as well as several graphical and camera glitches.

 

I have no idea how to get the arcade AX version to work at the moment.

Yep, nearly exactly the same except the arcade was called F-Zero AX and the gamecube port was called F-Zero GX. The AX version apparently had some more stages and few extra characters from memory but plays the same. 

 

Call me nuts, but I find these versions boring compared to the old on Nintendo 64 for gameplay supremacy that is!
