ShastaOrange Posted August 26, 2004 Share Posted August 26, 2004 Hi. This is just a post to let everyone know that I'm finally finished with BAED3 and I just started posting Disc A. For anyone interested, here is the text of the info file I'm providing with it: Big Ass Emulator Disc 3 It took a while, but BAED3 is here. I went through the entire MAMEset to pick out the non-working games and lame porno games. I may have made a mistake or two, and there are also cases of non-workingparent ROMs having to stay on the disc to enable their working clones tofunction, but I think it's safe to say that 99% of the games on the MAME disc work. After pulling all those out, I was left with about 6GB. From that, I took out all the CPS1/2/Neo Geo stuff and was left with 3.4GB. That's Disc A. Disc B is FBA-XXX, which is the CPS1/2/Neo Geo stuff, including the newer "banned" ROMs that aren't in the regular MAME set, like Metal Slug 5 and King ofFighters 2003. Unlike the MAME disc, I didn't go through the games on herewith a fine-toothed comb, so there may be some games that don't work on theFBA-XXX disc. All the files on here have been verified with a ROM auditingtool, though, so hopefully there should be very few games that don't work. I did successfully test (test = goof around and play) the majority of the most popular games. Arcade ROMs use the old 8+3 naming convention, so that means that bothdiscs of BAED3 can be easily put on your Xbox hard drive as-is, unlike BAED1 and 2, which required extensive renaming. I'm also posting BAED3extra, which is u64x, the Killer Instinct 1 & 2 emulator. Unfortunately, that emulator is only playable from the Xbox hard drive. That's why I made it a seperate archive, rather thanincluding it on a disc. Quick Instructions: Disc A (MAME): The first time you use it, it will automatically scan the disc for ROM filesand place that list into a gamesave file so it doesn't have to be done again.After this, you'll have your list of games. Press A to launch a game. It'llask you to type OK to indicate you legally own the game. Just push the leftanalog stick Left, then Right, to do this. To "insert a coin" press Back.To pause your game, press Back+Black at the same time.To exit from a game back to the menu, press Back+Start at the same time. For other configuration options and details, see Help section in the game andexplore the options and mess around. Disc B (FBA-XXX) The games here are split into different menus by system. You've got CPS1, CPS2,Neo-Geo, and Other. To cycle between the different menus, press the triggers.Like in MAME, you press A to launch the game and Back to insert a coin. Unlike MAME, you don't have to "type OK." When playing, press the right control stickin like a button to pause the game and bring up a menu that will allow you to change a lot of options, and also exit back to the game menu. POSTING INFO I'll be posting PAR2 files along with the RARs.
