Hello recently I bough 1 time crisis 4 deluxe machine but sadly both cpu are dead I change for standar 256 system now have video but game won’t boot saying error msg . I know time crisis 4 use super system 256 but . Are there any way or any modification allow me use standar system 256 to as replacement cpu ??? Or something ???
Ok so you’re looking at both sets of hardware? Maybe you can confirm what looks different.
I’m under the impression that the super256 just has the gun I/o built in, but is otherwise the same. That could mean that if you add a gun IO to a standard 256 that it will run Time Crisis 4. I really haven’t tried though since I don’t have the proper io myself.
So do you have a gun io hooked up? Got some photos of your setup and the error message?
The Super motherboard is simply a higher clocked (and I think more buffer RAM) motherboard, without the mode select jumper soldered in, and a new system bios. It's entire purpose is to support Time Crisis 4, although some other games work fine on it (albeit with speedup in some cases)
Also, don't attempt to switch it to 246+ mode- the PCB really does NOT like this (presumably due to the lack of the relevant BIOS bits necessary.
AFAIK there is no known way to play TC4 on a normal System 256
maybe @gamemaster14 can say if he's tried it, my intel is from his blog: gamemaster14.blogspot.com/2015…6256-arcade-hardware.html
Way back in around 2009 elsemi from M2 emulator fame, patched it to work on a regular 256. Sadly do not have it, but shame that a lot of stuff never got archived.
I'd love to see that available for everyone, so everybody can join that game.* Arcade-projects, the site where you get the most of your arcade games.
