The Dragon King
blahblah and wahwahwah.....

It has been brought to my attention that the d3d dlls I included in the latest build generate some files, that apparently try to mess with your proxy. They seem fairly harmless (they are trying to dl an configuration file for the dlls apparently) BUT.

For the d3d8 dll you'll get this:

[PROXY]
EnableProxyLibrary=0
InitProxyFunctions=1
ProxyLibrary=
[GLOBAL]
PartOfENBSeries=boris-vorontsov.narod.ru



Change it to this:

[PROXY]
EnableProxyLibrary=0
InitProxyFunctions=0
ProxyLibrary=
[GLOBAL]


And make the file read-only


The d3d9 dll has a gigantic ini called blahblah.arc that allows you to fully tweak the render engine.

Just change the settings in the proxy section to look like this:

[PROXY]
EnableProxyLibrary=0
InitProxyFunctions=0
ProxyLibrary=

This one will remember settings.

Now keep in mind this is just a precaution. I checked my proxy settings on my computer and they are just fine. Better safe than sorry though.

Some Downtime.  
Saturday, July 16, 2011, 02:00 AM - General Site News
Lately I have been doing pretty consistant updates and I like doing that when I can, but the real world is closing in and I'm going to have to take some downtime, probably for a month or so.

The Heater Core in my car busted yesterday, so unless I want to bathe in Anti Freeze I'll need to remove the dashboard, somehow become a contortionist, and get that swapped out.

Also the brakes on my mothers car went out at the same time, so I'm going to try to fix those for her as well.

I have other things going on as well but I won't bore you with details.

Needless to say updates and new software is going to be sporatic right now.

Stay tuned, as an update to mamehooker, and outrun drivers for mame will hopefully get released before the summer is out!

Taito X Wrapper pack 1.2 
Saturday, July 16, 2011, 01:47 AM - Wrappers
Ok I found some dlls on the net that fix a lot of problems with the Taito X Games.

I've also cleaned up a removed a lot of bulk in my wrapper.

The combination of the two is the Taito Type X Wrapper Pack 1.2

It allows you to rotate all of the Vertical Games (except Raiden IV), hide the cursor, and also display bezels.

It also fixes the following bugs/issues:

Homura / Shikigami III - Proper Framerate
Matrimelee - Intro Video Now plays, Quicker Boot Time.
Street Fighter IV - Intro Video no Longer Locks Up.


It's in the misc downloads section to the right and as usual it comes in a no artwork flavor.

Enjoy!

Yup the link to the no artwork version of the rotate wrappers was broken. The php garbled the link, sorry. It's fixed now, so have fun!

Arcana Heart 3 wrapper 1.0 
Tuesday, July 5, 2011, 03:53 PM - Wrappers
To go with the other type-x games, I've created a wrapper for Arcana Heart 3, which doesn't give you a proper exit key and screws up the screen resolution. I've also included a utility (not mine) to remap the keys.

The wrapper does the following:

1. Launches AH3 (duh)
2. Allows you to remap keys via a utility I found. (All except the coin, exit and test keys)
3. Allows you to define different coin1, coin2, test, and exit keys that the wrapper will translate to the hardcoded keys the game uses and pass them along.
4. When the exit key is pressed, the game gracefully exits and the proper desktop resolution is restored.


Now this game is very new, BUT the game has a 0% chance of ever being released in the west. If it does I expect you all to buy it. ;)

The link is in the misc utlities section to the right.
