Problems Playing Back Hisa-Chan's Raiden Recording : LUSENET : MAME Action Replay : One Thread

I've tried the usual combinations on

With / Without Sound With / Without nvram With / Without cfg Frameskip 0 and Automatic I've tried the Win betas on either side of win36b16. I've even tried the Dos 36b16 to no avail.

Anyone have any idea on how to playback what I'm sure is an excellent recording?

no luck here either, we may want to mail him, he is very polite when trying to replay his recordings if they don't work for others, heck he's so good he can churn perfect recordings out like butter.

I'm sure if we get him to state if he used sound or not will help, but i also tried both with sound and with out. on the dos36b16 and win36final. I don't think the nvram issue was involved before mame36final, so if we can just get him to record in win36 or dos36 it might work, i notice no-one but vaz has made a recording with windows in the raiden's and i can never get vaz's recordings to work when he uses mamelang32 anyway...

I can't get his recording to work right either, unfortunately.

It can't be an NVRAM issue because the game doesn't create an .NV file... NVRAM was first introduced in m36b14 I think, that's why I'm always using m36b13 to record Neo-Geo games. But the fact that 36b16 was used on the recording shouldn't really affect it, unless playback got broken somewhere in that cycle. Hmm....

All right. I will record tonight.(If I can finish the work of today) at another version.

3 million is very easy for me.

Last night,I was very tired but play at once instead of the dinner with boss.

I installed m36b15 but my joystick does not apply this version.

sorry. I record mame032-36b16.but I can playback new one. The new one is a little better than 3.12million's but still poor. please check it again if you do not blame my poor skill.

-- Hisa-Chan (as@you.know), June 12, 2000.

did you try "mame raiden -joy XXXX"

where XXXX is your joystick type from the readme.txt file. dos mame does not work with a joystick by default.

I couldn't get your raiden playback to work with dos36b16 or win36 final (but that doesn't mean it does not work!) i just don't keep every windows executables around since they are a pain to use multiple versions with, so i don't have win36b16.exe. maybe someone who does can get it to playback...

Great! It works! Game finished, died on second time round on stage 2. Final score was 3,469,310. Poor play? I don't think so! I would hate to see a good game... Oh yeah, I used MAME32 0.36b15 to play it back. I'll confirm that score if it is changed to the correct score...

Barry, What are your configuration details? I can't get the new one to work. It goes further but this time goes out of synch at the first boss (2nd big tank). I've tried Win36b16 & Win36b15, sound, frameskip, MMX permutations but it always plays back the same way. These win betas are real flakey for playback.

-- Tim Morrow (, June 13, 2000.

I'm having playback problems at the exact same point Tim mentioned... the Level 1 boss. Win36b16 or DOS 36b16, it still ends up breaking there when sound is on. With sound off it doesn't go as far...

-- BBH (, June 13, 2000.

Thank you many trial. It sometimes works and sometimes not works. I record it mame032-36b16 with sound.

but please do not waste so many times for that play. I will send another better when I have enough time to play.(during June)

4 million is not so difficult and 5 million is possible for me.

-- Hisa-Chan (, June 13, 2000.

If you want to tell me something, send here please.

-- Hisa-Chan (, June 13, 2000.

Please try recording your 4+ mil recording using a dos mame (if you can get the joystick to work with the -joy option) or with mame32- 36final. if you do not know where to get the mame versions goto

and you can grab any version you wish to record in.

-- Chad (, June 13, 2000.

OK, I got MAME32 0.36b15 (closest I had to b16, it didn't work with 0.36 very well), I had sound on (MIDAS, 22KHz), Auto frameskip, and deleted cfg/raiden.cfg before starting. There are .hi or .nv files to remove. Also, no joystick settings used.

-- Barry Rodewald (, June 13, 2000.

Then,I send another better one.
