Taito type X

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I want to use Taito Type X rom on Lauchnbox. I have some rom from HyperPC with attract mode on windows. Can someone tell le how can I put theses roms in Launchbox ?

I have found a video tutorial in the Youtube channel of Launchbox but it's too old.

Thanks.

"roms" is a weird description for games on this system. these are specialized games that run on windows.
So it's a quest for finding the right command line or shortcut and feed that to launchbox. taken that you have the proper pre-requirements installed on your PC allready. 

Good luck!

I totally agree with @ngok31.  Could one of our esteemed gurus please revisit the best way to get Taito Type X up and running?

The YouTube tutorial is very outdated as of v9.2.  Thank you!

Personally, I use the free version of Teknoparrot. If there is some interest, I'll put up a quick rundown of how-to!

Basically, start by downloading teknoparrot @ teknoparrot dot com. Some antivirus flag some files, but thats not unusual for Taito type-X and other arcde system alike.

Take time to run Teknoparrot UI, and configure some games. In the teknoparrot emulator folder, you'll notice a folder named game profiles, containning a bunch of XML profiles, they will be usefull once you are set with Teknoparrot UI.

Now for Launchbox, here's what I do: 1)Create a shortcut for each game I want to use, and name it accordingly to the game. 3) I add Teknoparrot as an emulator, with no specific paramaters. 3) Add your Taito TYpex game manually to Launchbox. 3) it is where some don't know what to do : under the "Emulation" Tab of the game. select Teknoparrot as an emulator and then check custom command line parameter and type

--profile=SuperStreetFighterIVArcadeEditionVer2012.xml

choose the profile name acordingly to those XMLs we've seen under the Teknoparrot profile Folder.

and you should be set! Sadly, with this method, even a bulk import the shortcuts we've created each need to be edited manually with the emator or at least the line for the profile.

Note: You'll notice that teknoparrot support a lot more than just Taito TypeX games, I wont go in details for configs for each games, the Interwebz should provided you the information you need! Worst case scenario, if you already done torough researches, just PM me here and I can either help you, or point you to some more detailled informations!

Enjoy!

Brilliant solution, @SagaXIV!  This is exactly the small nudge needed to get this going, and I've got it loading from LB perfectly.

I have no problems with inputting command lines on a per-game basis, just to see these in action (and thankfully there aren't a ton of games for TTX and Nesica).

Hi Mate,

So far I have been using Colpipes78 examu Ex-board tutorial as my main resource.

COLPIPES78 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzohF-hgujA

SIMPLY AUSTIN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9S6F-4QZfzo

LAUNCHBOX https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xowd0JiDqdQ

Taito typex, Nesica, Examu Exboard, Tekno Parrot and the Sega Edge and similar roms all work in the same way.

I have been able join the rom sets of:-

TEKNO PARROT, NESICA, EXAMU EXBOARD, TAITO TYPE X FROM COLPIPES & TAITO TYPE X FROM SIMPLY AUSTIN

They all work with RH LOADER, once you get one game working , transfer the following files to each game directory.

RHLOADER.EXE - LOADS GAMES

RH_CONFIG.EXE - CONFIGURES GAME LOADER

TTXCONFIG.EXE & TTXCONFIG 2.0.EXE - MANUALLY SETS CONTROLS

"..\SV" FOLDER - STORES CONTROLS CONFIG, SO COPY FOR EACH GAME

Now can someone help me. How do I setup AHK script to exit RH LOADER to go back to my frontend?

 

Thanks In advance BMAN
