FBA Discussion / Re: Removing the rom initialization windows
« Last post by angrypug on February 21, 2017, 02:33:11 AM »
It's the Captain Commando at the beginning (Max arcade machine, always first!) :) You know, it'a light rom so it's loading almost instantly, but larger ones like Street fighter III and others are showing that loading window for like 10 seconds.

I spent so much time on completing, renaming, configuring so that everything would be perfect, but it was worth it! This thing is just incredible!

Videos of my GPD WIN:

https://youtu.be/ee91fvqd4ic - Just to show how it looks with decals, screen protector and dust plug covers.
https://youtu.be/uOG9zSrU9kU - Just to show my setup of Attract Mode.
https://youtu.be/gVDiqwSvw5E - Just to show my setup of Attract Mode (Quick test of emulators + PC games).

The third one is still uploading. Sorry for the qulity, but I had to record in 480p, because my internet sucks... uploading it for 720p would take ages!

You have someone in mind to do that?

It's definitely a PCB that has passed through the hands of some devs, might even be currently owned by one..

actually got a reply already

"Well, coolmod had a friend with an odd one, used apparently an extra board. I looked at the dump (from 2015) and the chip at 36j matches the crc in mame. Maybe you can check if it replaced an earlier version of it. It looks like Corrado had a pcb of it at one point too. I'll ask on the DU for more redumps but if it was this crc before coolmod's dump was added then it's been dumped at this crc from 2 different boards."

so it has been dumped from 2 different boards, including one with split roms instead of Mask roms, with the same results, which makes bad dump start to look unlikely (it's unique hardware, so the split mask roms board isn't going to be bootleg either)

that 2nd dump has been passed to iq_132, but if he finds that it matches I guess another avenue will have to be explored.

it would probably be more sensible to find somebody to redump it..

In Gaiapolis rom 123e01.36j is a bad dump (I think). I have tweaked some of the data (color data) and fixed some glitches. I need to see if I can get all of them fixed.
I'm having a lot of fun figuring this out :)

And fixing a little issue like this isn't worth to breaking in a working game.
I beg to differ. ROM dumps are here to stay, but physical games won't be around forever. That said, I wonder if there is a way to confirm the current dump is bad before redumping the game.

I've seen they said it is because of the bad dumping but it really not a big deal. As you and many others (including me) say the game is fully playable like the Guardian 2. And fixing a little issue like this isn't worth to breaking in a working game.
