A blog to show my progress in the development of CPS3.
I only tested for a few minutes but it froze twice in attract mode when Ryu jump-roundhoused elena and Ibuki and froze in 1p game when I played as Ryu and jump-roundhoused ibuki.I'll test more when I get home from work.
I just tried playing again. The first hit of any match, no matter what button or what character freezes the game. Anyone else tried yet? Wanna make sure its not this motherboard messing up.
@Mitsurigi-w, try the new version and make sure you rewrite all.Cheers.
I will try this out over the weekend & report back:-)
I think the problem is on my motherboard somewhere. Maybe the simms? Still freezes but it is a motherboard I just assembled with spare parts I had so I hadn't actually had a game running on it yet. My guess is the simms. I'll swap some out and see if I can get to testing for you.
Tried game this morning and after just freezes before you can coin it up.
I downloaded it last night and tried (about 12 hours ago) and it froze on me in the first fight in attract (Ryu vs Elana) on the roundhouse kick.I rebooted and started a game and hid it freeze on my first attack (Elana vs Ibuiki, I was Elana and performed a fierce punch attack)Brian.
Good so it's not just me. I used it on another known-good motherboard and confirmed that the motherboard I was using was good by loading a different game.Freezes the way just as described by dbstallman on every motherboard.To be sure:You must load up enough simms for 2I so the cart will work. And NG should work fine using the 2I memory setup. Correct?
I can't get the download to work. It times out at 2% every time. Sendspace should work better than netload and have less or no wait time.
It took about an hour and a half to download the first time. The second version I started downloading and went to work. Came back four hours later and it still had a meg to go. But it did download. Can't play it, but he'll fix that soon. ;)
@Mitsurugi-w yes you have the correct amount of simms for SF3 NG if you are using a SF3 2nd impact set up.http://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/CPS3#SIMM_requirements
Yeah I figured. But since you are using the 2I cart, more memory is required to play the smaller games. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing a step somewhere. I'll just wait for the next fixed version.Curious how Darksoft had his running all night but ours freezes on the first hit in attract mode. That's what had me wondering if something was wrong with my setup. Relieved to see I'm not the only one having the issues.
Yeah i just ran the SF3 NG ISO on a 2I set up i got the first fight in attract (Ryu vs Elana) to freeze so i think it's the ISO or it could be the way i'm reflashing the simms and missing something?
I got it almost 2 days running....Can you please specify which country code are you using. I believe it has something to do with the violence mode or something like that.
I'm using a japanese 2I cartridge (Battery Free)
I used a USA cart but I have a few Japanese 2I carts I can try as well.
All my 2I carts are battery powered BTW. Don't think it makes a difference though.
Stunning work. Can't get new gen to crash at al.
What security cart are you using?
So I tested this with both a US and Japan battery powered B cart and a battery powered Japan D cart. Freeze persisted in all carts.
Mine is a JP battery free cart and I'm using a forced US region ISO created from your table.Brian.
Also, since many of us are experiencing exceptionally long download times (this 30MB image took me two tries to get at over 1 1/2 hours each), would it be possible to also post a link to an archive of just the decryption table?That would let us get to testing bug fixed versions much quicker.Brian.
I understand that it goes faster with Mediafire for everyone?
Is the link in this post the latest ISO for new generation? I saw you mentioned updated tables in the voting thread, was that for both New Generation and 3rd Strike? Mediafire is much faster on my end compared to netload.
ok, I'll use mediafire.Latest SFIII-NG ISO and tables will be updated in 4-5 hours when my bot finishes testing.The ISO and tables to 3S that are on the other post are the newest ones.
Any idea what is causing the massive freeze for some while it works flawlessly for others? Just curious. Thanks for doing this. I know its a ton of work.
I believe it's a violence mode issue, related with the country code. New version coming today should fix all this. By the way are you using the ISO uploaded or generating your own?
I'm using the ISO you have uploaded on a japanese 2I cartridge.
I used the ISO provided and these carts:Jap BJap DUSA B
Update 2 doesn't go past the title screen.capcom logo -> intro -> title screen -> black screencapcom logo -> coin up -> title screen -> press start -> black screenanyone else?
Confirmed. Can't watch a demo match or coin up and hit start. Solid black screen after the intro or when pressing start.:(
Great i will give "Update 3" a try now and report back:-)
Same Ryu vs Elana freeze on a japanese 2I cartridge
Update 3 - Quick test.1. Freezes when Ryu hits Elena in the demo.2. Freezes when 1up hits CPU (Ibuki vs Dudley)
Update 4 - Quick test.No freeze in Demo fight or First round :) Will play/test some more later.
Update 4 - Freeze 1Ryu vs Elena when her stage changes (the bridge drops down) at the end of the first round.
Update 4.. No Freezes in attract mode! I can test it!Elena's victory poses seem to be broken. It doesn't freeze the game, but when she ends her first round she stays in the fighting stance (animated) and sometimes will say the victory quote, but not pose. At the end of the match (for a win) she will always perform the same victory pose (hands on knees, dancing notes).Brian.
I've also had the game freeze after the first round on Elana's stage.
I'll help test when I get home. 12 hour work shift today. 6 hours left. Nice to see some good progress!! Keep it up!!
Thx for feedback. I made an improved bot to remove all the mistakes that you mentioned. New version tomorrow :)
Burned this and played for about an hour. Only problem was on my very first match Ryu vs Elena on Round 2 as bridge drops game crashed. Otherwise no other problems, got to Gill a few times on a handful of characters. Did not run attract mode very long. Great work!
I didn't get to play much but I got through the entire game with Ken and it didn't freeze on Elena's stage. I guess its a problem with Ryu?
I just noticed something interesting. I converted one of my dead New Generation carts to the Asian NoCD version using the bios from MAME. When I use it with this version, the version screen on startup always says Japan and doesn't say NoCD like it usually does but it still boots without the CD. But it plays as the Japan version rather than the Asia version. But when I use this cart with 3S it says Asia NoCD and plays the Asia version. Weird that it plays in Japan region with this ISO and a Asia Nocd cart.
Mitsurugi, thanks for all the testing you are doing. It's helping a lot!I believe that your problem with the country code comes from some smart-ass (me) releaseing a Japanese ISO with the RAR :)Can you try creating your own with the tables and get back to us?
Can you give me a quick rundown on how to do that? I've always used the provided ISOs. Thanks!
Mitsurugi, I sent you a PM on KLOV.Brian.
Ok. Thanks, bro.
Update 5Great! :)Ryu vs Elena bridge freeze fixed.
PLease everyone update. Let's make this release final!
I just finished rewriting. Going to play now.Are you still going to wait to fix the minor ratings screen problems with 3S until all other ISOs are released? It plays great. Just curious.Thanks!
In short, my TOP priority is to have ALL ISOS working. If meanwhile I can fix it I will :)
haha, ok. I was just curious since this one is looking like it's almost final and there are still 13 days left to vote for the next. ;)
This is running perfect completely bug free so far!awesome work:-)
No crashes for any of my playthroughs. :)Elena still doesn't perform a win pose after the first round of any match. I have also noticed that sometimes when you are fighting her (on her stage) other characters don't perform a win pose after the first round either.She does do a win pose, always the same one, at the end of the match, though.
All the above about elena is normal and is completely the same in the original.the other characters don't do a win pose because the stage drops down to the other.
I stand corrected. I had seen her perform the handstand pose after every round in my Dreamcast version years ago (probably 3rd Strike) and so I assumed it was there from the beginning for the series.Thanks for the input.
No problem it's only SF3 NG & SF3 2I she does this due to the stage is used in both versions,where in 3rd strike she had a redrawn stage with the massive sun set etc.
Some more testing please and we declare this as final version.
Had a test and completed with yun. Didn't see any crashes. I am not too familiar with NG, so I can't speak with any experience, but things did seem pretty normal.
I've played this all day and it's perfect to the original version:-)i think we can say it's 100%.
Great! So it's official.
I have tested "Update 6" today and it seems perfect with no problems at all great work:-)
Did a few runthroughs of the game with various characters, no problems to report.
