Tempest playback problems

greenspun.com : LUSENET : MAME Action Replay : One Thread

I have problems with recording games with tempest for T5. I use Mame32tg3b, and can't make my inputs play back.

I tried starting tempest (without recording), setting the dips, ending the game, and then record the game. It doesn't play back even if I save and reuse the cfg-file that's been generated after the first steps.

I tried setting the dips at the beginning of the recording, but when I try to playback the game it thinks I want to use german language and 2 coins/credit. And of course the game doesn't play back.

Can someone please tell me the correct steps to take to make a tempest recording with the T5 settings.

Yes this is a problem, i have only known one recording to playback properly (out of 7 attempts) with win32tg3 and tempest, and the same recording won't playback for the submitter JSW. But JSW's current better recording won't playback. JSW is going to record with dos mametg3 in place and i think this may be the only way to get tempest recordings to playback properly. This is a bummer but hopefully everyone can find a non NT system to make a recording on with m35tg3 for tempest.

You can still submit the scores because i think it's slightly possible that others will be able to play things back but the best stable route to go is to record with dos mame on a 95/98 computer.

Ok, I'll try to find somewhere to make a dos recording.

By the way, I use Win2000, and I remember you (Chad) stating that it would run dos mame. The discussion was about Arabian in KoA which had the same problem. I have no problems running dos mame 0.36 and later, but haven't been able to get mame35tg3 to work. If you post the settings you use, I would be forever in your debt.

oh hmm, actually did i say i could get it to work in NT or 2000? naw, wasn't me. i'm suprised you got mame36 to work on 2000. hopefully this won't be too much inconvenience for 2000 or NT users to find a dos machine for this game.
