I was able to play back the 'stage 11' replay on here, but none of the others.

I don't know if it has something to do with the RTC or something else, would be nice if somebody could get to the bottom and come up with a real fix :/


Haze, could it be a problem linked to OS used ?
What is strange with PGM games is that players can quite always playback their own inp.
Plus for example I can playback perfectly Vaz inputs for ddp2, and he can playback perfectly mine ; but for other it desyncs ...

Not sure how PGM itself is problematic, I've only had issues with Dodonpachi II, personally. Certainly I've never had playback issues with earlier PGM games, and never with Cave PGM games (Dodonpachi II doesn't count, it was developed by IGS ;))

Most likely, the issue is some obscure bug in some part of the driver, probably inadvertent use of uninitialised memory, or memory it shouldn't be using.

Haven't tried Puzzli 2 myself, yet, but it might be worth looking into what it uses, or has in common with Dodonpachi II.

DDP2 and Puzzli 2 are both problematic, yes.

Firewave ran various tests on the driver and didn't find it accessing anything uninitialized, so I'm not sure. (he also found nothing on brapboys either tho)

The CAVE boards lack the RTC..

TY Pat ; why "deu" instead of "ger" ? (I know that means deutsch, but in the game this "german" proposed)

ISO Country Codes. I'm considering renaming all splits that have countries to standardize (mostly racing tracks).

For example, f1gpstar [Germany] already uses -de, so perhaps I should probably just use 2 character codes.

OK, it's all fixed. There were only three countries within a few games that had these issues: England, Germany, and Spain.

So slipstrm and slipstrmh now have 2 character extensions to match all the others.

Any chance flipmaze could be split to add vs. cpu, also the same goes for spuzbobl and spuzboblj. Thanks in advance for this.

I guess all the new Golden Tee games need splitting into the various courses on offer, the game also offers a front/back 9 option on all the 18 hole courses, although there's no new content that way so I guess just playing all the holes makes most sense.

(also I'd assume special rules to allow you to play a full 18 holes? it requires more than 1 credit)

they do play at 100% on a modern PC, at least if you flick the 'low resolution' dipswitch on.
