[Emu] Virtua Striker 4 (Arcade Triforce) | Windows PC Dolphin emulator

Recommended Posts

Hello Brodo, and first I would like to congratulate you, that game was requested by so many for so long !!

Unfortunately I cannot manage to make it work on the computer I have dedicated for emulation. Each time I launch a version or another of Virtua Striker 4 the emulator shows only a black screen then it freezes and eventually crashes as it tries to use almost all the memory available (I have 32 Gb).

This computer is running Windows 10 and is successfully working for many kind of emulators as I have almost 400 systems set up on my hyperspin installation and I have all the necessary libraries installed.

I can also run the standard version of Dolphin and I used to be running the other Triforce games without a problem. However I can see now that I have  the same problem with the so called DolphinWX and DolphinFZ versions which were running Mario Kart GP and FZero respectively (strangely I don't have this problem with the version Triforce 3.0 which is running Mario Kart GP2, go figure !!).

I can also run your version of dolphin successfully on another computer. So I understand that the problem is coming from my computer and not the emu but maybe you have heard or encountered such a problem before.

Anyway, thanks again and I am open to any suggestions as I am a bit lost for now.

@brudibru , I have exactly the same thing and like you 32gb Ram, I can run any other version of dolphin for triforce games, albeit with different versions for each game, which is standard as you know and they all  work reasonably well, yet I had  VStriker 4, including the 2006 versions, running quite well on my mates computer with only 8gb and a Nvidia 750ti graphics card but it wont run on mine with an 8gb quattro card, 32gb ram and a 12 core 26 thread xeon processor, to make things worse he deleted the emulator off his computer, so I cannot even remember the settings or get a copy of the dumps I used on the emulator at his house. I think it just comes down to luck with dolphin or so it seems anyway.

i dont think its luck,  dolphin wants nvidia. now all games run well, but also all dolphin games running on older dolphin versions run worse than newer ones we have to play on an old tri force dolphin version, i get over 100 fps but then also i get stuttering back down to 49fps  up and down fps   L    A    G  on the soccer games. it maybe just cache it may not be. all i know is i can play RDR2 in max settings in 4k HDR at over 90fps into the 100's

It's because i already said it. It's not a stable emulator. I don´t need to repeat this.

The problem is that people still denied the annoying unstable version as it is and everyone just complain about the hardware instead seeing that Dolphin 5.0 Stable version works better.

It's Dolphin devs fault to remove the source, if they didn´t remove it on Dolphin 5.0, it wasn´t necessary all this drama. 

I don´t know if the Stable 4.0 or 4.0.1 have the source, if it have, maybe, just maybe will work better. 

See you guys on Dolphin 6.0

@cool coyote, thanks for the answer,  my "emulation" computer is  modern enough to run Dolphin with a 1060 Nvidia card so I don't think it is the problem.

 

@Gingerjazz, I am relieved to see that I am not the only one with this problem, although contrary to you I have also the problem with older versions of Triforce for the other games (It was working back then and I don't know since when and why it is not the case now). Maybe you can tell me which versions you are using for FZero and mario kart GP 1 for example ?

 

@Hyperscorpio I don't want to blame anybody for the unstable state of the emulator of course. I have started using emus back in 1996 so I know how it works and never in the world would  complain to an emu author for his work. Here it's just that I haven't found a solution despite searching the internet extensively about my problem and I wanted to know if somebody else had the same problem and found a solution. I will patiently wait for future versions.

hello again...as for the vs4 versions, both the export and the japanese ones work very well...except for the detail that in the second match (first round) that is played on the court where in the lower part of the sides it gives the shadow of the roof of the stadium, it has problems with black textures, just like if he touches a corner kick from that side the player is totally black..
Greetings and we will see if these minimum details can be solved.

Salut, tu voudrais bien me mettre à disposition le lien qui permet de télécharger la version 2006 export s'il te plaît? J'ai la version 2004 mais je n'arrive pas à me procurer la version 2006.

like I said originally in case ya missed it, its great we can even play this game in some capacity. I have tried for ages to get this game working somehow. yes the devs just need to be more engaged let alone 'care about the thing'  they got this far, be nice to finish it rather than some stupid mario golf game(im kidding i like it lol)

Agreed, it is still a fantastic game in this day and age even, VS4 ver 2006 is possibly the best all time arcade football game ever, or if not it is certainly up there.

Arcade is king . in my eyes. theres a reason why they made arcades the way they did, this way we get to th bloody point without some drawn out zelda story nobody gives a shit about.  the reason why Jonah lomu rugby (ps1) is still the best rugby game, cos its 'arcade' at its core, its not some silly  simulator, fifa game. like i choose vs2 over any modern soccer game. also controls are better and easier . JUST MY Opinion

do u have fzero AX running on 4.0-315 ? i got both MK games running fine ... but f-zero after adding all the code to by-pass the jvs error it crashes or gives me a black screen ..

if u have it running can u share a portable version of the emu ?

Thanks for your help Gingerjazz. I already had those 2 versions and they used to work perfectly for me. Now the 4.0 is not working anymore and the 3.0 works. I tried to remove the dolphin directory in my C drive, uninstall all dolphin versions and restart fresh but still the same problems.

As Hyperscorpio said, it has to be expected from unstable versions and so I will wait for further improvements hopefully.

@brudibru As a last resort you could always try the portable version and windows compatability mode set to windows 7 or 8, try adding the folder to your antivirus as an exception as well, it probably won't make a difference but it's worth a try if it was working okay before.

Thanks GingerJazz, I have tried all that and much more but no success. My computer has a problem with the 4.whatever versions of dolphin/triforce.

Grazie brodostar per l'emulatore, voglio solo pubblicare qui l'elenco dei giochi dei dump funzionano e altri hanno bisogno di riparazioni.

 

Stabile

Virtua Striker 2002 (Type 3) - Working
Virtua Striker 2002 (Giappone) - Working
Virtua Striker 2002 (Export) - Working
Virtua Striker 4 Ver.2006 (Japan, Rev D) - Working
Virtua Striker 4 Ver.2006 (Japan, Rev B ) - Funzionante, ma le icone devono essere rimosse.
Virtua Striker 4 Ver.2006 (Export) - Lavorare
Virtua Striker 4 (Export) - Lavorare

 

Necessità del firmware di avvio

Virtua Striker 4 (Asia)
Virtua Striker 4 (Asia, Rev B ) come si avvia la iso dove richiede il firmware ad esempio Virtua Striker 4 (Export, Rev A)?

 

Dump mancanti: disponibili ma in CHD e CHD estratti, è necessario un file BIN corretto. 

Virtua Striker 4 (Japan, Rev C)
Virtua Striker 4 (Japan, Rev E)

 

Tutti questi dump provengono da qui:  https://archive.org/details/triforce-roms

 

Non dimenticare! I dump per giocare ai giochi sono versioni decrittografate.

Rinomina il file .bin in .iso e poi se vuoi convertirlo in .gcz per piccole dimensioni, comprimi semplicemente semplicemente facendo clic con il tasto destro del tuo mouse nell'emulatore delfino nel gioco che scegli per comprimere l'ISO. 

Divertiti! :Molto bene:

Non ho capito come posso rimuovere il messaggio boot/firm version in virtua striker 4 2006 rev A export qualcuno me lo può spiegare? Grazie

for anyone who is having shader problems with the Virtua Striker 2006 ver export (black shaders)... here is a couple of methods to try to fix it from nohero  (from tests it appears that it doesn't work for everyone but hopefully it could fix the issue from some ppl )

 

method 1:

https://mega.nz/file/qMl3FIYK#C5FcmAO54zIo6Ovx9X883j81HMkeGLA8j1uRaaXAUf0

pass is : nohero

 

check the readme and follow the instructions .. (the shadercache files should be copied to the shadercache folder inside "User" folder ...it is recommended to have a portable setup for the emu)

 

 

method 2 :

if the first method doesn't work for you try to use these settings  in hacks tab

https://ibb.co/cYCLMdZ

 

 

it is important to know that due to the emulator build being old ..it is not stable and acts different on different machines , so it is hard to have a fix that will work on all setups ... but hopefully this can help some ppl get rid of shader problem.

Someone needs to either add proper support for Media boot update (in dolphin source code) or reverse the code and patch the version check instructions in the game (I included patches for most of the games in my version of the emulator)

Compare the config i made with yours, runs worst. We can´t do anything, without having a better performance on this version.

Adding Triforce Branch over dolphin 6.0 it will be the solution and the devs. after adding this large code implemented in the emulator, no one will need to change any option. 

Other solution is pick the source from the triforce branch and add over one of the stable dolphins, if is avaliable one source from Dolphin 5.0.

They already forked the source of triforce branch so...

yep , Like i stated in my post it's an old build , so it's very unstable and acts differently on different machines ... for example it works really well for me with full speed and with minor unnoticeable graphic bugs ... all i needed to do is remove the cache and build one from the start with the sound option(LLE recompiler) and skip EFB access checked using EFB copies on ram ...it's been running great for me for almost a week so i could say it's working fine on my system.

but for other people it behaves differently ... so  they can try these fixes and see if it would work for them but one thing for sure it won't work on all systems perfectly ..

 

and yea, like u said the only way to get it to work really well for everyone is to update it to a newer and stable version of dolphin  ...  so we can only hope the dolphin devs change their minds and work on it or someone will complete the work on the triforce branch and bring it up to date ...

Big Like, and i can play Virtua Striker 3 from Gamecube on dolphin 5.0 at 60fps even the rest of the console games. And i'm happy to have both gamecube and xbox emulated.

After finding out about this a few days ago and coming from a guy who's made a good amount of playthroughs on Virtua Striker 4 on YouTube *shameless plug, I know!*, I gotta say....good work, brodostar! Slowdown on this was bound to happen, part of the process! Totally didn't see this coming in 2022!, that's for sure!
