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.

You need to get a new P1 rom in order for it to work with Kawaks loader. I don't have it (I wish I did) but you can read about it in this thread: http://www.1emulation.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=8195

Without that P1 it will not work in Kawaks.

 

And yes, if Kawaks detects it it is not a dodgy set since the names and CRCs have to match. Since the text is garbled that means you have a bad S rom. PM me for info about KOF2001 (it's not tough to find since it's old enough) but if you need it, I'd be glad to lend a hand.

 

And you are typing things perfectly. :lol:

Kof2003 will never work with a loader You will need a hacked P rom for it to work then it wont be kof2003 at all. Ny 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

 

 

Mame and FBA can emulate the roms I have for clone Mame but kawaks with loader will never emulate them Untill kawaks offically supports them.

Basically, find the P1 that was released by Zhaoshili of the EGCG team and you'll have a P1 that works in Kawaks, Nebula and NeoRAGEx.

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.

Kawaks dev is evil. It has it's own specific sets.

 

This is my set that works in Nebula 2.24 Loader and *should* work in kawaks as well:

Just a reminder that you need to change the filenames, and CRCs since you might have different roms.

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?

IIRC, the set you and robbbert have only works in Kawaks Dev and maybe in MAME (and I'm not sure about MAME). kawaks Dev doesn't have Asr.dat because it isn't a Loader. It's just regular Kawaks with some developer thingamajigs enabled so that it supports some of the new games.

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!
