Samurai Shodown Edge of Destiny out for tinkering
« on: August 03, 2011, 09:25:30 pm »
The usual outlet has finally released the game (arcade, Taito Type X2) but they have not been able to get it to work with the current loader. They decided to release it in the hopes that somebody does.

Stay tuned.

I think the "usual outlet" may now have a hack up that makes it work. Man, this game is huge (4GB)!

Anyone know a way to change the controls to match my MAME cab setup?

Right here if you are up for changing the game.exe with a hex editor.

You could also use autohotkey.

Sorry, you are right.  I forgot that forum is not open.
Follow the instructions below; any hex editor will do.
I had gotten around the issue using ahk but I liked this solution better, so I did that instead.
Let me know if you have issues.

; This text shows where to edit controls in the game.exe for Samurai Shodown - Edge of Destiny
; Open game.exe in UltraEdit, hit Ctrl+G and paste the 0x######### number below to find the key you want to change
; Change it's value to the hex of the key you want instead.
;
; Original Controls:
; Player 1:               Player 2:
; Up - Up      @ 0x000A8238 hex C8   Num 8 - Up      @ 0x000A8323 hex 48

That's way over my head. Just going to hope a loader compatible game.exe comes out eventually

Giving it a stab...what about test switch?

Thanks!  Got it all working except the test switch to change to English and enable blood

I'm afraid the test mode button is either not in the exe or has not been identified.
Some people have managed to load the game using typex_loader (like the other TTX games), in Win 7 64bit, using XP SP3 compatibility mode, so they can configure the keys using typex_config.  This did not work for me nor many others, though.

We'll have to wait on that one.

Found out a workaround.  Make sure your corrected file is named game.exe and run this program http://www.megaupload.com/?d=U1RC1DML

After that it will create a folder named SV in the same folder you are in.  Copy the files in this link into it and it will enable blood and Engrish

https://rapidshare.com/files/1461401925/sv.rar


While it's no test mode, it at least gives us the most sought after changes.

Now if I can figure out how to get KOF:MIA working

When I try to load it up my comp says it's missing a dic32.dll file, a file which my bitdefender called a worm, anyone have  any ideas?

I was messing around with remapping the controls with a hex editor and noticed two extra controls.
By default, C makes P1 jump backwards & M makes P2 jump forwards.  ???

Can't find any buttons mapped that makes them jump in the other directions.

I remapped them because they interfered with the buttons I wanted to use for other controls.
(they are at 8284 & 8380 EDIT:8385 respectively)

Were there more than 4 buttons on the original control panel?

Tried this and now the game crashes.  :-\
Anyone else have a problem with it?

EDIT: Nevermind.  Started from scratch and followed these steps before remapping the keys and it works fine.
         I probably messed something up the last time I had it open in the hex editor.
         Just gotta remap my keys again, then it should be ready for primetime  ;D

I'm wondering if anyone has managers to find the HEX address of the ESC (exit) key
I'd like to change the default.

I had taken a long break from the hobby and I'm a little foggy on setting up Taito Type X games but I recently found this launcher.  I'm not sure if I found it here or in another forum but I intend to look into it and possibly migrate my hacky setup to this if it looks good.
