First of all ,thanks emulate58's 1TB TTX3 img . It's working well on my TTX3.

But ,I had got a X4 from Japan , it's a Starwing Paradox game.

When I got this one today , I tried a lot to find the bios password . So I entered the bios ,and change the taito model for develpment mode. After that ,now I can boot X3's 1TB harddisk。

It runs well , the x4 is silent . I had tried some games , almost all are ok ,but someone had problem : street fight 5 , tenken 7 ....

I have not test all ,but some one can not start .

If you have a chance to get a Taito x4, it's worth to get one .

attched are some phone for view but not so good because I used a video capture for dispy on my note book.

I use the DMAC card from the TTX3 and JVS/fastio through that. Just need to get a pci slot plate plate made up that holds the IO daughter card because it just floats around in the case for now.

a usb io also can be used,but you should make a harness by yourself。

Do you mean the TTX4 USBIO? How are you using this? This won't work to control games?

If you use a Brook fighting 4 in 1, you can have controls. I've tested it in JVS mode, so I know it works.

Sure, I could tell you how the setup goes. Please note that I only tried a few games and they worked and the games I tried were on free play already. So if there's games that need to be coined up, I didn't get that far. It's not my normal setup, so I disconnected shortly after my test to put it back to my normal setup. I used the Atrax version 4 for this test. Basically, the Atrax sees the Brook Fighting 4 in 1 as a keyboard. Also note that I had already switched it over to JVS prior to hooking it up to the X4 and running this test. I have not tested it in Fast I/O mode, so I don't know if it works or not.

Here's how MY setup was:

- Make sure it's in developer's mode as noted from the OP.
- Hook up Atrax version 4.
- Hook up the Brook's 20 pin header (lower left hand corner of the board) to its corresponding buttons on your control panel.
- Plug in the USB into the Brook.
- Plug in the USB into one of the X4 USB 2.0 plug (I used the one at the bottom).

Bios Password for x4 are all different?

How did you discovered your?

It's the same for all units, Taito really decided they didn't care for security on these, i guess because nearly all the games require internet to play at all, so even if you somehow dump your game it's pretty much useless to you without Nesica. Anyways, it's your own hardware, and the pass isn't obfuscated at all, it's just plaintext in your bios.

First two steps of this and you are done for the curious.

Unlocking your system and putting it in develop mode won't give you any access to the HDD or the contents anyways, so all it lets you do is run your own Windows or multi game etc. The HDD's are locked and without enabling security on the system and booting it as intended by Taito you can't access the original game HDD's.

Even then, most of the system games are retired anyways.

Starwing Paradox (2018) << Servers still running but the game has been announced dead by the developers, so i guess it will probably be the next game announced server shutdown. Game is multiplayer only so when its shutdown it's dead.
Street Fighter V: Type Arcade (2019) << I guess the main game still alive on the system.

So it's really just Street Fighter 5 which is still kicking on TTX4.
