About This File

 

 

I spend hours doing this so you don't have to. Creating configurations for play....not display.
As you are most likely aware, arcade platforms are a pain to setup. Controls aren't standardised and changing settings via test menus can be tiresome.


This is just a small configuration pack for the 12 Naomi 2 games. I separated these from the
 Naomi 1 games as they are far more demanding on HW.
As a result OpenGL isn't the best choice if you don't have a high spec PC. Vulkan isn't the most stable either, so I absolutely recommend D3D11.
After testing, I discovered this almost doubles the performance with some games compared to OpenGL.


What you get with this pre configuration:

-All Naomi 2 Games working (apart from Driving Simulator as it's not supported yet)
-Analogue Volume correctly adjusted for 1:1 analogue range with a controller.
-Wild Riders working correctly with no pesky rear brake being a dick.
-All fixes needed have been done with Test Menu adjustments. Many of these games will not boot unless done so.
-Only English versions apart from Initial D Arcade Ver. 2 as only the Japanese version works at the moment.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Download NVMEM Naomi, Remap Files for RA.
  • Place NVMEM files in one of the following folders. RetroArch/saves/"roms folder location"/reicast or just RetroArch/saves/reicast.
  • Depending on how you have your saves set to save it may be either of these.
  • Place Control Remap files in RetroArch/config/remaps/Flycast
  • Use my control images however you want. Frontends, pause menus etc.

 

Here is the documentation for this configuration. Everything I have done on a per game basis is listed here along with which ROM version you need to use.
I have also provided any passwords, engineers codes, cheat codes and important information here also.
This is a consolidation of information. Everything that needs to be actioned by a player for e.g. a cheat code to unlock something will be in green.

-Motor Power in the Test Menu needed turning off (NO-USE) for this game to boot.
-CB-MIC has been disabled (NO-USE) in the Test Menu as this isn't emulated.

Virtua Fighter 4
vf4cart
-CHD Version is available (vf4) however I opted for the cart version as it's a later revision.
Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution
vf4evoct
-CHD Version is available (vf4evo) however I opted for the cart version as it's a later revision.
Virtua Fighter 4 Final Tuned
vf4tuned
-CHD required
-Network is off as this skips the loooong network check on boot,
-Advertise Network is off as this gets rid of the icon on screen when in game.

VF2 Music Cheats:
Both players have to hold P&G after choosing a stage, and then a corresponding direction to get different music, U, D, L, or R, I think there's 4 0r 5 as neutral may be a direction too, they are slightly quieter than the normal bgm though.

Different Costumes:
Hold Start when selecting a character.
Virtua Striker 3
vstrik3c
-CHD Version is available (vstrik3) however I opted for the cart version
-Game time set to MAX. Golden Goal set to 1m and PK set to Real PK

Ranking mode:
Insert your coin(s) then hold Down and press Start.

Play against FC Sonic team:
Win the final match of the game, and wait until the team photo appears at the congratulations screen. Then, press Short Pass three times, Shoot, Short Pass. If done correctly, the FC Sonic team will replace the FC Sega team.

Unlock FC Sonic team:
Highlight "Sweden" at the team selection team, then press Start. Highlight "Morocco", and then press Start. Highlight "Denmark", then press Start. Highlight "Spain", then press Start. Highlight "France", then press Start. If done correctly, the "FC Sonic" option will appear at the top right of the screen. Note: You may first need to play against the FC Sonic team before they can be selected as playable.

Unlock FC Sega team:
Highlight "France" at the team selection team, then press Start. Highlight "Cameroon", then press Start. Highlight "Spain", then press Start. Highlight "England", then press Start. Highlight "Germany", then press Start. Highlight "Argentina", then press Start. If done correctly, the "FC Sonic" option will appear at the top middle of the screen.
Wild Riders

-I managed to get this game to play properly without the rear brake being a dick. It took some lateral thinking but I done it without losing the use of the rear brake. Achieved by finagling the analogue volume.
-Analogue Volume correctly adjusted for 1:1 analogue range with a controller.
