Off topic here nes, but are you at all interested in refining/updating DaphneX? Long shot, I know...

Hello everyone. I have a few questions about FBL now that I'm using it and I finally managed to acquire a full romset.

1) Does anyone know if there is a way to filter out clones without manually creating a favorite's list?

2) Does anyone know if there is a way to hide the extra info on a game name, for example "1942 (Revision B )"

3) Does anyone know if there is a way to get the movies to play for the clones as well without having to copy the movie and give it the clone's filename?

Thanks,
~Rx

P.S. Love the emu, by the way. cool.gif

I can't seem to get 1.3 to work, I've copied and recopied files over, but consistently, after install when I choose "select game" I get "Final Burn Legends has encountered an error, press A to exit"

I've searched around, but haven't found a lot of support documentation or anything to explain this specific error.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Im no expert but, now for the silly questions.

Did you check them first with a rom manager.
Have you rescanned for roms. (options\rebuild rom list)

Sounds like you are missing files.

Easiest way to fix it.

Install 1.1 into an EMPTY directory. Don't modify the Path.ini
Then copy 1.2 files over 1.1.
Then copy 1.3 files over 1.2
Put roms in the roms folder
Start the emulator

Make sure EVERYTHING is transferring to your Xbox. Some FTP programs will skip files.

No. I find this information extrmemely usefull. However, if you want to get rid of it, then you can:

1) Add all your favorites to the Favorites list.
2) Modify the Favorites.ini file and rename the display names anything you want.

No. I didn't want to slow the ROM browser down by having to do an extra check for every file. It is expensive to "try" to open a file that isn't there. That would mean for every file, it would look for a screenshot, if not there a parent, a movie, if not there a parent. Four checks for every file it too much. Nothing I hate more than a sluggish GUI.

Very interested in that and a new NeoGeo CD emulator. But I won't be doing either. I just don't have the time anymore.

I don't think this emu gets the attention it deserves....bummer.

I grew up playing MACH 3 and Dragon's Lair in the arcade. Draon's Lair was the first game I ever saw that took 50 cents to play.

aahhhhh... the arcade. i kinda miss it. when you got to play games that clearly kicked the consoles butt. sf2 just isn't the same and i know it's the actual game in fbl but, well you know what i'm talking about.

don't forget about samsho 2 either... i had a 40+ winning streak against a bunch of people. i used UKYO!! biggrin.gif

Yeah, those were the days eh? I remember when I first saw Dragons Lair running in the arcades,
that was truly mind-blowing back then. Especially compared to the other arcade games... smile.gif
The High Quality version of Dragons Lair looks great in DaphneX btw. From memory, MACH 3 doesn't run.

I've decided I want to keep the full romset in-tact, and with the answers I've gotten that is doable. We can filter for only parent roms, which was the big thing.

1) Add all your favorites to the Favorites list.

2) Modify the Favorites.ini file and rename the display names anything you want.


Good, that will work. Much nicer doing this work than it would have been to try to figure out the "best" version of each game.

I will have to consider how I'm going to handle this for the Xtras. If it doesn't add too much space I may add clones of the videos to support alternate roms. I'm thinking it's going to add a whole lot of needless space taken up though so I may just have one rom for every parent and if you have a clone as a favorite on your rig, you'll have to live with just a screenshot (assuming that can be done, I'm still new to this emu).

Thanks for the tips, NES & cbagy,
~Rx




EDIT: That was a little tricky, but I got it. Seems that once you've added too many favorites it takes forever for the emu to update a new game to the favorites list. I broke them up into 3 favorites lists to get around this and then was stumped for a minute why everything from the second favorites list was showing the zipfile name and everything from the 3rd favorites list was showing "NULL". Turns out I had 2 line breaks in there that were causing it.

I'm going to remove the excess characters from them now and probably dump the demos and mahjong and other unplayables from the favorites list now, then I'll see about those videos.




Two more qustions:

1) When we use just the "Parent" roms, we can be sure that there is representation for every game, right?

2) Has anybody been working on making the missing videos? It looks like we have most of them for FBL but I noticed a few playable games that didn't have them while making the list.

Here's my favorite's list for it with the file names cleaned up: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=5Q0RANBD

This is just a preliminary list of 787 games taken from the parents of the full FBL 1.3 set. I believe I've removed all porn games, all mahjong and other japan text heavy games like quiz games, tech demos and other garbage. No Genesis games are included in this list.

All I need now is some people to help test these games on my list and let me know if any of them are not working so I can see if one of the clones work instead.

Thanks for volunteering in advance!

Here is a spreadsheet I'm making to keep track of which parents work, and which games we still need videos for:

http://spreadsheets....amp;output=html

If you'd like to help test, PM me your email address and you can let us know in the spreadsheets which games you played that worked. Also, let me know if I left in any text heavy unplayable games, and let me know if there are still porn games in there since the filter isn't 100% correct and I've pulled out a few of them by hand already.

Thanks!!!!!


EDIT: Spreadsheet is ready for testing. Assuming I didn't miss any games, it looks like we only need 12 videos to complete the set. If anybody takes a look at the spreadsheet and has any of those videos, I'd appreciate it you send them to me.


EDIT: Here is a preliminary datfile for the parent roms http://www.megaupload.com/?d=GKCH2YH8

Some parents don't seem to work without the clones, so we're testing for that right now. First step is to figure out which parents work without the clones.

LOL

This was sad news though, but I can definitely relate to the time issue.

By the way, if there are any iPhone/iTouch users out there, the Dragon's Lair port is pretty good. So is Space Ace. The animation on those games is amazing.
