King of Fighters 2003 News II

Recommended Posts

taratata Posted on Jan 26 2004, 04:40 PM

  There's something strange with the "rkof2003pack.zip" file (containing m1 and s1 roms).

In the text file that comes with it, they don't mention any s1 rom. They also mention a m1d rom with a different crc than the one from the m1 rom that comes with the file.

 

Strange isn't it? :(

 

last i checked, 2k1 and 2k2 used 2 m roms in the same way (m1 and m1d)

Apparantly you can use those files with KOF2K and see some progress. I read about it on the Apocalypse website a few hours ago.

Yep, you can see lots of jumpled up crap, but you can see the energy bars and fonts, and (I think some sound samples) - which tells me at least that these are legit.

Yes, only encrypted romsets use 2 M1 roms which help the emulatores dercrypt encrypted rom sets. See example of KOF2k2:

Also in the encrypted set, you'll notice that only the m1d and V-d roms are listed in the dat, but the regular m1, and the merged v-rom sets are not listed but present in the romset. The D versions of the roms are from old romsets which help like that of a cps2 rom, basically decrypt them.

 

so if KOF2k3's C roms are encrypted, you'll have to run them with an encrypted set. And likewise if the rom is decrypted.

Am I the only one that thinks it's funny that a game by japanese people uses "dudes" 2-3 times in the ending for the hero team :(

 

As soon as the p1 rom comes out will it be a big step in the emulation?

Before all the roms are out, there won't be much progress...

And for emulating it, there are a few emulators floating around that supposedly already support it. We'll know if they really do once we'll have all the roms...

 

About the "dudes" thing, as long as it's in english the characters would say the same thing if the programmers were from United States, Somalia or any other place in the world :P

(And it's also meant to be sold in the US)

well I figure there must be something out there that does support it. how could those ending screenshots be ripped like that w/o emulation? @ the moment it just seems that it's covert, stuff we don't know yet
