How to disable Windows$ Defender, which removes critical files needed by TeknoParrot, and other emulators/loaders ? https://www.windowscentral.com/how-permanently-disable-windows-defender-windows-10 Do NOT install another anti virus, Game loaders, such as GameLoader All RH and TeknoParrot do so much more. These programs patch game memory on the fly, to get through the arcade machine hardware test, (as an example, no lights connected) dongle emulation, decryption, et cetera. So these game loaders and their associated files need to be able to run freely. We should not update our gaming rigs "in the blind".

First, look at the front page of this thread, and read it, twice if needed ! Second, I will try to explain what my intentions are. I will test all the TeknoParrot loader supported games one by one. And report my findings and solutions here one by one. Anyone who wants "to chip in" / "help out" ? By translating this text, to their native language, and placing it on THIS site. (Copy / paste into google translate, edit the translation errors out) Rig used: Window$ 10 64 Bit 1803 version (Up to date) Soon dual boot with a 1809 revision of Window$ 10. Intel I7 860 @ 2.8 GHz 4 GB RAM NVIDIA GT740 2GB @ 1360 x 768 - 60 Hz I will edit this thread when I have the time to test all the games on Window$ 10 1809 revision. It is my personal opinion/ choice to use a NVIDIA based videocard. Most of the original arcade machines TeknoParrot tries to run, work(ed) with NVIDIA videocards. AMD GPU based video cards can work problematic. There are AMD GPU based video card shader patches, which can be found here. Specially for the people with an AMD GPU based video card. https://github.com/Nezarn http://www.emuline.org/profile/24479-nezarn/ We should be thankful to Nezarn for the AMD videocard shader patches / fixes. But my personal experience is that TeknoParrot and the games run less problematic on NVIDIA based videocards. As far as I know, TeknoParrot does not run on Intel or AMD IGPU's, a GPU integrated in the CPU. (laptops) At least not the "heavier" games. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphics_processing_unit#Integrated_graphics_processing_unit I hope that this tutorial helps other people out. It takes you a few moments to read, but it took me all night to figure it out. When you get the game working, thanks to this "manual", please give a thanks at this post. Enjoy !! 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 .....
