Hello I have a new problem/bug, I have a solution but no answer.

 

I have copy/paste arcade game folder from a computer to another, same OS (Win 7), same folders (always same name).

And on some game like Hauted museum 1 and 2, on the first computer the game works if the executable is on the racine eg "F:\emulateur\Arcade\TaitoX\Haunted Museum/game.exe" but on the second I need to create a fake folder to have it working eg "F:\emulateur\Arcade\TaitoX\Haunted Museum/exe/game.exe".

I have found this bug because on the second computer before a crash the application create files (*.cfg and *.crc) on the previous folder "F:\emulateur\Arcade\TaitoX".

 

For information theses 2 games works without loader.

 

Someone have an idea ?

 

As far as I'm concerned, I took my freshly downloaded Haunted Museum Zip file (Haunted Museum.zip) and unpacked it to the folder of my choice (which is C:\Games\Haunted Museum). Since then I'm always just one click away from being out with a gun whilst hunting the Haunted. Plus some virtual extra coins next to me on the sideboard, so to speak, because you never really know how many enjoyable efforts it could take me this time to pleasantly get rid of the game's fantastically designed cartoon-esque brood of darkness.

 

So, aeliss, why don't you copy/paste me for a change (haha) by doing it like I did? Just make a brandnew start by unzipping the Zip file to a folder you prefer, launch game.exe and give 'em hell! :-) Anyhow, that's the way it works for me.

In fact it s not a problem, now I know the bug, but I rly can't explain that.

 

I have do like you on the computer n°1, all have work at first try without problems. But some game/system take lot of time to configure so I have a computer n°2 that is a copy of the computer 1, and usualy I just copy files from one computer to the other to go faster.

And I spent lot of time to find why somes games don't work on n°2, Now they work but I can't understand why they don't work same.

@aeliss

 

It could be that some of your software which doesn't start from scratch on PC n°2 (after you have copied them over from PC n°1) are referring to game configuration details/files that can only be found on n°1; which would possibly be the reason why n°2 gives you an error here and there, depending on the respective game. For instance, there's a TAITO folder in my \Appdata\Roaming from where some Taito games partly read/write their information (like configuration or score rankings). A folder which was created after each first start of the particular Taito game. So, indeed, because you've just copied over your software (instead of setting up a fresh install process), the games could be looking for something on n°2 which doesn't exist there and consequently leave you behind with an error message.

 

Of course, I'm aware of the fact that my assumption is just one among others within a sea full of different technical troubleshootings. Anyway, I'm glad that in the end it worked out well and you can go ahead with an undiminished Arcade joyment! :-)

Has anyone tried to dump this game? It’s Gaia Attack 4 by Taito released in 2010. It runs Taito Type X2. I'd be grateful if this game was playable in PC today.

Is it possible to change the resolution in valve r limit and chase hq ?

 

how ?

 

To my knowledge, when we're talking about Chase HQ2 from 2007, that's a thing of the impossibility. Therefore, it remains as wishful thinking to see not just Nancy, but all the other tempting stuff that game has to offer as well, in a higher resolution, until someone highly capable out there argues the converse.

 

Can't tell you anything about Valve Limit R on the other hand, because I'm a sucker for good Arcade Racers only, haha. Or did I miss anything worthy that might come from this slip (-pery when wet)? Feel free to convince me of the contary! :-) I mean, Valve Limit R isn't exactly known for any erupting riotous cheers among the community, is it?

Heres a question I wonder if anyone can answer. I play Otomedius using RH Loader which works great and use joytokey to work the controls which works great in win7 but for some reason even when the profile is open and picking up controls in win 10 it doesnt work in game, does anyone else have this problem in win10

Tips for Cyber Diver to help improve the image.  

 

Force anti-aliasing through driver control panel.   For Nvidia you need to set antialiasing compatibility to 0x0000F0C1 with Nvidia Inspector.   Then you can force 3x3 Supersampling for this game for 1360x768.

 

Reshade does not work with this game apparently so next download SweetFX - Boulotaur2024's Injector with 1.5.1 Shaders.

Copy the sweetfx files to Cyberdiver\bin directory.  Use SweetFX Configurator to change image settings.  

 

Turn on Lumasharpen filter.  

Sharp_strength 1.0 (or even higher)

Sharp_clamp 0.2

Offset_bias 1.0

 

Try Splitscreen SweetfX mode to see the difference.

 

Enjoy.

Attached are SweetFX files I made for Cyberdiver\bin folder to sharpen image.    Note you must first force driver anti-aliasing with NVIDIA (3x3 supersampling ideal) using antialiasing compatibility to 0x0000F0C1 with Nvidia Inspector.     Otherwise it will be too pixelated to sharpen.

Here's something for you people who have happily joint Taito's Parascience Investigation Team in the meantime, willing to successfully force the Gaia 4 Attack to turn back wherever its creepy origin came from - and with a wider field of view! In fact, if you want to blow away those fierced - and sometimes slimy - creatures off the screen in 16:9 picture format, simply add the few little lines written down below to your MINIGUN.INI.

 

Depending on my setup, I used the resolution 1366x768px as a reference, so change it according to your own screen width and height:

 

ASPECT_X         16
ASPECT_Y         9
SCREEN_WIDTH 1366
SCREEN_HEIGHT 768
RENDER_WIDTH 1366
RENDER_HEIGHT 768
RENDER_WIDTH3D 1366
RENDER_HEIGHT3D 768

One problem  the video avi files are not encoded at that size so the creatures are misplaced in some areas, take for instance the office sink they are supposed to come out of the drain but when you change the resolution they come out of nowhere instead.

Thank you, Manson976, for drawing my attention on that issue which I totally overlooked. So, to enjoy a true to the original gameplay experience, I guess it'll be better not following my 16:9 advice and hoping that someone steps out with a better solution instead...

Gaia Attack 4 originally had 1024x768 resolution(much like Haunted Museum Series). The game had an 60’ HD Screen in the arcades with an 4:3 screen ratio. So 1024x768 is the best resolution if you don’t want any misplaced things in the game.

Didn't installing "wmv9VCMsetup.exe" and/or setting the "game.exe" to Windows XP SP2 compatibility mode (as it's gonna be suggested within "readme.txt") do any good to you? As for me, I found my Dump right there:

 

http://www.emuline.org/topic/1286-arcade-pc-gaia-attack-4-ttx2/

 

Personally, I chose the first link (File name: GaiaAttack4.rar), which did the job right for me.

Just set compatibility to XPSP3

NOTE:

Enable Mouse in JConfig settings

Create a virtual drive D: for your save files to work

I've made a dynamic 2gb so all other Taito games that utilize this drive.

I know its been a while but can you upload this in another host? Thanks in advance.

Manson976, the game seems to work perfectly in widescreen and 1080p.   Can you try with these settings and see if you have anything misplaced?  

 

SCREEN_WIDTH 1920
SCREEN_HEIGHT 1080
RENDER_WIDTH 1920
RENDER_HEIGHT 1080
RENDER_WIDTH3D 1920
RENDER_HEIGHT3D 1080
ASPECT_X         16
ASPECT_Y         9
