  1. You're right. I just d/l 1.48dev and that specific kof2003 set worked fine in it.

     

    But now Samsho5 refuses to work in dev... (it never ends does it...) Can anyone confirm the existence of a working samsho5 in dev? Basically I'm (yet again) forced to run 3 different versions of kawaks just to play all the games (a la Neorage) and I'd love to cut out 1.45 loader totally and just use dev.

     

    Im so close I can taste it!


  2. I have kof2003 running on kawaks 1.48b dev (if it helps)

     

    Here is the info

     

        262144	c521b5bc 271-bios.bin
     16777216	c29acd28 271-c1d.bin 
     16777216	328e80b1 271-c2d.bin 
     16777216	020a11f1 271-c3d.bin 
     16777216	991b5ed2 271-c4d.bin 
     16777216	c2de8b66 271-c5d.bin 
     16777216	3ff750db 271-c6d.bin 
       524288	0e86af8f 271-m1d.bin 
      4194304	b9da070c 271-p1.bin  
      4194304	da3118c4 271-p2.bin  
      1048576	5cefd0d2 271-p3.bin  
      1048576	59d376da 271-p3d.bin 
     16777216	2058ec5e 271-v1d.bin

     

    I have this exact rom! But I just can't get it working in kawaks 1.45 loader due to all the 271-bios files and the lack of v-2 v-3 v-4 files, I have no idea how the info layout should look like in the asr.dat. (Anyone who can guide me feel free!)

     

    So is 1.48dev entirely different from 1.45 loader? Does dev use the same asr.dat structure?


  3. My rom you have found on the site for clone Mame will not work in kawaks with the loader since the sets i use are encrypted and have protection which drivers are needed Thats why there for my build because there driver are there for them

     

    So how come this correct encrypted set is only 50 something MBs in size? Shouldn't it be closer to 100MB?

     

    Agozer: I've tried the P1/M1/S1 fixes on about 5 different sets and still I can't get it working... One came close, I got the "Hacked by Zhaoshili" screen at the begining, but everything else is glitched to hell... Is the Kof2003 CRC list on the sticky ".DAT thread" the exact set I need?

     

    If anyone has kof2003 running in kawaks 1.45 loader then please show me the CRC info. Thanks.


  4. ok, I got the hang of editing the asr.dat to add the romsets I already have. all except kof2003, I tried about 4 different sets and still nothing... Are there any known issues about kof2003's compatibility with kawaks loader?

    I was very careful in typing it correct!

     

    And one last thing... If a rom is detected by Kawaks (official), is it then safe to assume that the rom is the correct encrpted set? Kawaks doesn't detect dodgy sets can it?

     

    I ask this becase my kof2001 is listed and works in Kawaks 1.53, but the text in the main menu is screwed. I need to know whether I need to find a good set or not.


  5. My humble thanks to all for your prompt replies. I'm starting to grasp the complex nature of NeoGeo emulation (well, compared to most other formats anyway) little by little.

     

    Basically, to get the full "correct" encrypted sets one must simply be patient and wait for encrypted romsets to trickle out, meanwhile decrypted hacked roms and hacked emus are the only viable option. I remember reading somewhere that the general gap between the games release and the rom release is about 3 years... which means we won't be enjoying a slice of encrypted kof2003 in Kawaks well until 2006/2007 maybe!?!

     

    Just one more thing though; since the official Kawaks is now supporting both kof 2001 and 2002 (also Martimeele and rotd), why is it I cannot find the encryted versions anywhere, all the sites only list up to 2000. May I just ask whether they exist or not? Or am I again just jumping ahead of myself...

     

    Looks like I'll have to make do with the black-bordered goodness of NRX or try fixing Kawaks'.DAT files for now.

     

    Thank you all.


  6. I've always used NeorageX 0.8c and ECGC to run my NeoGeo roms, but the new Kawaks (1.53) has much better rom support than before so I've decided to jumped ship.

     

    I'm new to Kawaks so please excuse my noobish curiosity, here are a few things I was wondering:

     

     

    1/ Are there Kawaks specific romsets like there are for NeoRage?

     

    2/ In the case of kof2000 it accepts the 77MB set (MAME rom) rather than the 40MB one (NeoRage). So is it correct to presume that when it comes to kof2001 & 2002 I will need to find the larger romsets for them to work in Kawaks? I ask this because all I can find are the small romsets for these two games and none of them work in kawaks, even though they are now supported.

     

    3/ I've also downloaded Kawaks 1.45 + Loader which allows mslug4 & 5 to work. So to run svcplus/samsho5/kof2003 do I need to find specific loaders for each of them? If so I cannot find them anywhere.

     

    4/ Why is it that the same mslug4 rom that works in 1.45 Loader doesn't work in 1.53, even though mslug4 is now apparently supported?

     

    5/ I remembered when I used to use MAME a long time ago that everytime an update was released the list of compatible roms would change, which meant re-downloading certain roms to keep up to date (The reason why I gave up MAME). Is this also a problem when using Kawaks? The fact that it takes MAME roms and is regularly updated suggests yes...

     

    6/ Am I a frickin' idiot? :banghead:

     

     

    Sorry about this dumbass post, but I've been wondering about these points ever since I first tried kawaks, I only gave it up cos NeoRage roms were much easier to find. I'm interested because Kawaks is obviously a much better emulator technically and I want to use it, I just need to know which roms to get.

     

    Thanks in advance.


  7. Ha! If only it was that easy... I redownloaded the roms from and the p1 patches from neogames and patched them, but not only are they not on the list now, they don't even work with the NeorageX EGCG I got from Argoza... wtf is going on?!?!?

     

    Why is the compatibility between Neo Geo roms and Emulators so F'ing bad?!?!!?

     

    And why does every link I find here to Neo Geo related stuff fail to deliver anything that works? I am baffled! Is it the rom? Is it the emulator? Is it the patch? Is it all three? Who knows...  :)

    lol calm down. damn. :lol: not everything is perfect.. try using kawaks. i think kawaks is lot easier and more user-friendly than neorage..imo :angry:

    A lot easier? Sorry, but I beg to differ.

    Yeah, judging by the amount of people here asking for loaders or why nothing's showing up does kind of suggest that Kawaks isn't a piece of cake either. Rom hunting is still a biatch whether you're using one emu or the other it seems!

     

    I've tried them all and I've had the most luck with Neorage so far, for some reason Kawaks just won't do anything on my comp.


  8. Ha! If only it was that easy... I redownloaded the roms from ] and the p1 patches from neogames and patched them, but not only are they not on the list now, they don't even work with the NeorageX EGCG I got from Argoza... wtf is going on?!?!?

  9. They both work 100% fine, just not on the main list.

     

    the metal slug 5 rom I've got are all named "268_xx.rom" (xx being the C1/M1/P1 etc...)

     

    And the SS5 rom are all named "ssv_xx.rom"...

     

     

    So where can I get these P1 fixes to make them work in Neoragex? I can't find them anywhere?!?!?!


  10. This is a bit of a stupid problem but a problem nether the less. I've got a working version of SSV and Metal Slug 5 for NeorageX EGCG, but how can I get them to show up on the list, rather than having them appeare at the bottom of the list with a (?) next to them?

     

    Thanks!


  11. Last Exile, just a thought here... Were the files inside the svclus.zip named like xxxxxx_xx.rom?

    svc_c1.rom

    svc_p1.rom

    svc_s1.rom

     

    and so on...

     

    any suggestions?

    A funked up P1 rom most likely... Does the game even appear on the gamelist?

    I can send you my P1 if you want...PM me.

    Yeah it shows up, the only thing wrong with the rom is, like I said, Iori's saika freezes the game. If replacing my P1 with yours will solve this then please hook me up! I'm running it on Neorage by the way, would that work?

     

    Thanks mate, you are like the samaritan of emulation.


  12. Whats your beef with effeminate male characters? And whats up with phrases like "queer" and "sissy", what are you a jock from an early 90's teen flick? If they were all "macho macho" alpha males then kof would be boring asthectically wouldn't it?

     

    I agree with the unoriginality on SNK's front though. Green flames? Come on... :blink:


  13. 0.6b was the last official release. All NeoRAGEx releases after that are mostly gamelist hacks (excluding EGCG NeoRAGEx).

     

    As for the emulator, I gave you a link already, AniManga networks. Try those fixes first, then go hunt for the rom.

     

    Here's one link to SVC: http://gamesworld.mentesvirtuales.com/emul...ps2/svcplus.zip

     

    is this the perfect rom???!!!???

     

    you f***ing rock dude... really. :blink:
