CRT Emudriver, Taito Type X and other pc based arcade
« on: December 01, 2017, 07:11:05 am »
Hi
Lately, I'm in the process of getting those pc based arcade games to work... I've tried some of them and they seems to work ok, but I'd like to go a step further and try to use native resolutions and refresh rate for those games

As far as I've discovered, all Taito Type X games are 640x480@60, and Type X2 and Nesica games are 640x480@60 in low resolution mode and 1280x720 in high resolution mode...

Is this correct?

Also, what's the refresh rate for Type X2 high resolution mode?

Thanks in advance

All games are syncing to 60 Hz. To use those games on arcade monitor/TV You have to set desktop resolution 640x480@60i. Street Fighter IV and Samurai Showdown does not look too good at 640x480. Some games like BlazeBlue does not show correctly graphics. Basically older Taito X games will be ok but Taito X2 games not too much.

All games works fine under XP. Under 7 and newer with legacy cards (Radeon HD4xxx and older) You have to use either positive sync in crt_range or Interlace Patcher (freash tool). Some of those games might still not work correctly under windows 7, more over even more does not work correctly under windows 10 (Homura and Shikigami no Shiro III are not syncing to 60 Hz anymore)

Hi
Thanks for the answer and sorry for my late reply...

I'm on Windows 7 and have a TV set for 15KHz games and a tube VGA monitor for 31KHz ones...

I have to note that CRT Emudriver is only installed on the VGA output, which is connected to the 15KHz TV

Taito Type X games works fine at 640x480 at 60Hz in both screens

Most Type X2 games works fine too, but some like the Blazblue ones, works for me at 30Hz, so they're slow

Other games are slow too, like KOF XII, but using D3DOverrider seems to fix those

I've seen mentioned in the forum that having the ddraw.dll file helps too, but I'm not sure of the purpose of it and it it's really needed or not...

I'm open for suggestions :D

Thanks in advance

Can you play all these at full screen? for me some like blazblue and kof xiii are displaying at 16:9. They all play fine though. Im on W7 x64, asus hd 7750.

I thought it was some HD 4xxx old card.

Anyway, this new tool might (or might not) help: http://geedorah.com/eiusdemmodi/forum/viewtopic.php?id=344
