[Arcade PC] Arctic Thunder (Midway Games)

Recommended Posts

I've extracted Arctic Thunder from a mame chd, it seems to be windows based and uses a 3dfx card

The game exe can be found in Midway games/arctic thunder/snow.exe, you can launch it with nglide installed but it crashes after a second

Does this mean that the game would be playable via MAME with its CHD file? Or would it fail in that way as well?

 

No it is not playable in MAME since the driver is marked as being MACHINE_IS_SKELETON:

MAME includes a ton of non working games in its database.

Sorry but you cannot play it. MAME is not capable of emulating the hardware to run this game and there are no emulators out there that can do it either. Your best bet for the moment is to do what was mentioned in another thread: try the PS2 version.

No dice.  At this time, until there is a working rom and/or new version of MAME that has the game promoted to working, the PS2 / Xbox versions will have to do until then.

So why upload a broken link then? Seems rather dumb but nothing of this generation surprised me anymore.   Now how about uploading Cruis USA/World and Exotica dumps?
