  1. Yea, basically what Rob said. The first stage is ALMOST totally playable, but after you kill the first boss, usually your ship disappears as well as the enemy fire, even though the game continues to run. I guess they just haven't gotten around to decoding the rest of the PGM architecture.
  2. The hacked version of Kawaks 1.45 w/ updated.dat data can play all the Metal Slugs, even 4 and 5.
  3. These are my must-have's: Don Pachi Do Don Pachi Gunbarich Ms. Pac-Man Batsugun Armed Police Batrider (Probably the craziest weapons you'll ever see!) Dragon Flame (or is it Blast?) Sen-Know (Once considered to be a brainwashing game, but still fun) Progear No Arashi Afterburner 2 Darius Gaiden - Silver Hawk (Some of the coolest boss designs ever) Nostradamus BeeStorm - Do Don Pachi 2 (I hope they fix the glitches soon!) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (The 4-player version) Guwange Dimahoo
  4. Does anybody know of some good arcade puzzle/block Tetris type games? Games like Klax and Sen-Know? Preferrably with lots of sprites and flying colors and whatnot.
  5. If you playing VP off an ISO, then it could be a bad rip also. If that's the case, then try re-ripping the ISO from another source.
  6. Z-Neo! Please post a location to get the game or upload it with a link! I've been looking for this forever! Or PM me if Agozer gives me a hard time.
  7. Any more news on the emulation status of DDP2? I checked over at CAESER, and they have screenshots that aren't photographs. So they must've been able to run it on something.
  8. Ok, I've searched and searched, with NO F-ING AVAIL! Can somebody PM me and give me a link or something because I can't seem to find this damn file.
  9. Kyo, why don't you just play Dimahoo in MAME? Then you don't have to worry about the dat.
  10. That's ok, I really just wanted to do it so I could play some arcade shooters and whatnot. The website that has instructions on how to make the disc was: http://www.richpsx.com/playstation2/utilities/ps2mame.html
  11. Ok, I've been told both ways. That you can use XMAME to play MAME games on your PS2, and I've also heard that you need Linux junk or something to make it work, or that it's a big hassle. I followed the directions on this one site for making a bootable XMAME ISO, but it didn't work when tested. Should I try looking for other info on this or just give up? I don't understand why it wouldn't work, SNES-Station works just fine.
  12. You need "strats"? Are you a musician looking for some guitars or something?
  13. When I try to load Samurai Shodown 5 in Kawaks Loader 1.46, it gets through all the loading of the rom files, and then, for some reason, it says "applying patches" on the top tool bar where it normally cycles through the files as they're loading, and then kawaks just crashes. WTF is this?
  14. Yes Mystical, I'm also a very active member at that site, and within their forums as well.
  15. I don't eat anything around my computer. There's just that one chance that you might spill something!
  16. Course, once you start getting into more advanced sprites like my avatar, which was from Armed Police Batrider and only playable in MAME, then it starts taking alot longer to do them. Also, sprites I've done from Valkyrie Profile for the PSX, as well as a bunch of other MAME sprites, all have to be done by hand, meaning, there is no layer removal or anything to help you, it's just you and the "eraser" tool.
  17. Actually, emulators such as Kawaks and Nebula do have little utilities built into them to enable sprite removal. This is accomplished by first pausing the game, then opening the "shots factory", then disabling the background layers, as well as the any other foreground layers other then what you want to capture. Then you use "frame advance" to move the game ahead frame by frame, and take screenshots of each frame. Then you use an animation program, I prefer Animation Shop 3, which comes with Paint Shop Pro, and re-assemble all the screenshots in order. Crop, make the background transparent by using "color replacement". Adjust speed and optimization levels, and boom, done.
  18. Actaully James, apparently there is a version for Kawaks that is like 90% complete. All that remains is the decode the v1 and p1 roms I believe.
  19. Subject says it all. It has to have all the newest games like, Metal Slug 5, SS5, KOF2003, etc.
  20. Or try http://www.romnation.net/index.php/roms/ They all work, and they pretty much have any rom for MAME that there is.
  21. Hey, did any of you know that you can defeat Kefka in one shot by having Shadow throw Atma Weapon at him? I wish I had known that the first time around!
  22. Yeah, if I got my hands on an EEPROM reader, I'd run right out and dump Do Don Pachi 2 DAMNIT! Someday, we'll have it!
  23. Actually, from what little I've read on the subject so far, ROMS are made or "dumped" by way of an EEPROM reading machine. It's a little machine that lets you "dump" the rom data into a file. This is accomplished my pulling certain chips off of say, an arcade PCB, then "plugging" them into the reader, and reading the data. Kinda simple, but I think the EEPROM readers are a little pricey and somewhat hard to find?? ??? This is why newer games on the Naomi hardware or that stupid Atomiswave hardware can't be emulated, but I believe, atleast with the Naomi, the it's 2 things working in unison to make the game play, and just the single cart like earlier arcade games.
  24. Hey JuMe! I had the same damn problem, since I'm also using XP Pro. After much monkeying around with BIOS's, and just going crazy, I suddenly realized the usual answer......REVERT TO AN EARLIER VERSION! So, I tried all the previous versions, and have found the GENS 1.90 will work with XP Pro. You can get 1.90 at the GENS homepage!
  25. I've always liked Tung Fu Rue's stage music from Fatal Fury Special, even way back when I used to play it in the arcades.
