I guess I suck too much for that, but I'm more going on the bonus you get after dying on the training stage. The course select screen suggests that the training stage is just one long stage. Do you still get a bonus for finishing it, if it then continues?


Yes.

http://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.php?t=1080

"The Training Mission should be renamed Score Attack, as it has a larger concentration of secret scoring tricks than any of the other selectable missions. It is also one of the most difficult, but can yield the most points if you can successfully gain all bonuses and loop into Novice Mission (and beyond). "

oops, will try to add these this week. I'm having trouble running psx in mess, which system name are you using? psj?


ok now I got as far as -cdrom software.zip "Device Cdrom load failed: Unspecified error" where software.zip contains .bin and .cue files. Do we have to convert to chd files for the cdrom loading of the psj system? Am I using -cdrom correctly?

I'd guess that you might have to extract the cue and bin files, since the cue file effectively points to the bin file to use. Otherwise, yeah, probably better to convert to a CHD.

I think you have to pass the path to the cue file to -cdrom. The .cue file contains the path and filename of the iso/bin/wav files containing the CD data and audio. You can edit the .cue file to correct the filenames if you need to (can sometimes contain full pathnames). There is no support yet for directly loading an ISO file (but this is in the works).

Latest versions of CHDMAN have changed the commandline parameters a bit:

For example:
chdman createcd -i <cue/toc/nrg/iso/bin...> -o <output CHD>

Code:
Usage:
   ./chdman createcd [options], where valid options are:
      --output, -o <filename>: output file name (required)
      --outputparent, -op <filename>: parent file name for output CHD
      --force, -f: force overwriting an existing file
      --input, -i <filename>: input file name (required)
      --hunksize, -hs <bytes>: size of each hunk, in bytes
      --compression, -c <none|type1[,type2[,...]]>: which compression codecs to use (up to 4)
      --numprocessors, -np <processors>: limit the number of processors to use during compression

later chdman that supposedly has ecm support requires paramters to be

chdman -createcd *.cue/bin out.chd

and then after you make the chd what mess options to use it? if you use cue for -cdrom that doesn't imply you can use the chd for the -cdrom option.

*** EDIT ****

NVRMIND, -cdrom Out.chd WORKED! But playback for your raiden DX recording goes out of sync probably because we don't have the same cdrom.

http://www.homeactionreplay.org/gameinfo.php?gameid=5983

And when the game's lisitng SHA1sum's, what is it sha1suming? the bin or the chd or the sha1 of the internal chd? Managing iso's is going to be a heck. But on the good side i do have the same sha1sum's from my created chd

I found two versions of Raiden DX, one referred to as "New Wave Series", which, as it's not mentioned in the HARP title, I ignored. ie: I used the one not marked "New Wave Series".

I guess this is an issue for Kale who put up the sha1sum that matched my sha1. Which is the one that should play?

Will take a look that the "Major Wave Series" version, see if it matches this version. Thankfully, it's not a large download.

Would have been nice to know which was which beforehand.
