      I remember someone having a cabless setup in norcal for DBEX and I think they modified the game to flip the image, no external hardware at least. I sadly don't remember who it was, just that they lived in San Jose. I do remember them selling the setup on eBay several years ago though.
      That was alamone, and he was using the same external hardware processors linked in the Japanese guide to flip the image to the correct orientation. He didn't modify the software.
      Oh, assumed it was software cause he had posted this of the game running windowed without needing to be flipped by hardware. alamone.net/image/Clipboard03.jpgNot sure if that's just the nature of forcing it to run in a window and fullscreen will always be flipped.
      Ima call Foul on that screen shot, because in the multiple dumps iv seen of the game, the window title is test of the day.
      So that is likely the Pc version modfied, to re-enable coins.
      As i already stated however you can directly modify the game to fix the screen rotation.
    • Alamone had the real HDD+TX2, he didn't hack the software to my knowledge. It's possible he got a dump of it after he sold his original copy, or perhaps he dumped his copy and had it cracked after the fact. Speculative, but there's no question he had the original hardware, as he sold it on eBay a few years back and posted images, videos and streams of it all running. He had all of the wiring, I/Os etc. mounted inside of a wooden project box.

      He details some of the quirks of how it works here, and you can see that the "test of the day" messaging happens during the boot sequence, where the game checks for correct EDID/screen resolution before starting the game. He also mentions how he was using a Image Anyplace IA-100 to fix the screen mirror/flip, and I know he ended up switching to a Lenkeng (?) device later on, for reasons I don't recall.
    • Thanks guys for these multi and the frontend. I am trying to configure the frontend, but I am having some issues.
      1 Frontend resolutions seems really low, like the thumbnails of the games or the command graphs are quite pixellated is that normal?

      2 There are a lot of games that are not in Niko's multi, like Deathsmiles, Darius, and so on. Is it possible to remove them from the front end? I would like it to show just what is available.

      3 The commands listed:
      Button 1 - Confirm
      Button 2- Changes the current fliter mode forward 1
      Button 3 - Changes the current fliter mode backwards 1
      Button 4 - Toggles the Artwork, to Show between Flyer, Title, Video
      Button 5+6 Open Settings menu
      Button 2+5 Open the "exit" menu (if selected yes, returns to nikos menu)
      Button 2+5+6 Opens the Edit Game menu (Most of this you cant edit with out a keyboard, however you can remove/delete a game off the menu )

      For some reason in mine, Button 6 opens settings right away, and button 4 opens some kind of search keyboard.

      Not sure why...


      Once again thanks a lot, it looks awesome.

      My frontend is what actually sets the resolution. So autobooting into @'atrfate''s menu will result in a 480p resolution, although all the games will still play in their respective resolutions ( based on dips and EDID ).

      I'll check and see if he can manually set the resolution on startup of his FE.

      As you can see Niko is already looking into this problem. You just have to be patient like the rest of us. :)

      You can edit the nesicagui.txt at D:\Frontend\AM\romlist. Just put a # in front of the games you don't want/need.

      Finally got round to sorting a fast i/o and rfid.
      I think there are other ways of doing it...but it works, so that's all that matters!
