Child's Play

Well not exactly, but with the knowledge gained working on the other games decrypting Raiden Fighters Jet wasn't too hard.

nicola...well done with your work about the raiden games

what about the raiden 2?can it be playable like the other ones, or we must wait because the encryption is much harder ruther the other raiden games?

thanks

keep up the good work

Raiden 2 is completely different hardware. OG figured out most of the graphics encryption, but it has other protection that's keeping the game from being playable.

We're lucky we got this.

Expect nothing and you can be only pleasantly surprised.

For some reason, I have the feeling that Nicola could turn water into wine, and people would respond by saying, "Well, what about Raiden 2?"

incredible work and one of the greatest accomplishments of MAME development since its inception. a historic moment in MAME history.

I really love Seibu's work. This is great, great stuff. I'm amazed. So much ground breaking decryption happening lately. I'm glad it's not the barrier that it once was.

Who's working on the sound core that SPI uses? Man, that needs alot of work. RF1 is listenable, but still a far cry from the real thing.

Fantastic work! Nicola, you are awesome. I'm still grossly understating the sentiment.

Aside to #3 and #4: Raiden 2 and DX may be completely different hardware, but it was by the same company. It's difficult to avoid wondering if the amazing work done here would have any application to them.

Certainly if the graphics were completely cleared up, it would be more rewarding/more motivation to examine the protection and anything else preventing full completion of the driver. Obviously everyone is hoping to a similar situation develop with SPI-- graphics decrypted, now let's get it perfect. Well, I guess we'll see!

Exciting times.

It doesnt matter if Nicola DID get Raiden 2 working, people would then complain about the sound. But I didnt know the R2 graphics where decrypted....... a round of applause for OG, even if there's some protection keeping the game from being playable.

I never got to play Raiden Fighters or any of the Raiden games in that series. I've only played Raiden 1,2,DX.

But I can understand that 2 and DX can't be done at the moment and am grateful that I have the chance to try some 'new' *at least new to me* shooters...

Thank you very much...

Incredible ! Nicola, you're the King ! I was just wondering : Maybe you could have a look at Raiden 2 and DX ;-) you look so proficient in everything you do ;) That's really hard to believe that what some of us have been waiting for so long (expecting a home console port that will never come) is here and playable on our own PC. Really Nicola, i'm not jocking, but even if i'm only 34 years old, i was really thinking that i would never play Raiden fighters at home in my whole life :))))) You bring to me and to us an undescriptible joy. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your stuff, time, patience and Guru spirit.

THANK YOU!!!
Your conquest of SPI is complete, even tho it was only childs play :)

Nicola,

The work you have done is just amazing!

To get away from all this newer decryption stuff, Maby you can look at an old rarely mention game that you added many moons ago?

The game is Great Swordsman, it has been tagged with an incorrect colors flag forever. Maby you could have a look thru that old but damn good game and give it a new improved Nicola shining? :)

Anyway just a suggestion! Mame is great and that should make you a proud father.

Don't you just love the comments from people that praise Nicola and then ask him when he's going to work on the next game they want?

yes, lamers...

I have fear.

I have fear that in the future the whole mame project in the future can became a commercial product. Please, please..... don't allow it happens!

if you read the previous post, instead wasting your and my time writting lame questions, you would know that Viper Phase 1 is aready done. Introduce some quality to your life and sometimes DO sth on your own.

Does Viper Phase 1 have encypted sound ROMs? It sure sounds like it. the samples are all static. Sounds differently messed up than the other games on the system.

Thank you Nicola! I've loved MAME from the beginning (being a Mr. Do fan). Now you've made my son very happy right before his birthday (he's 13). Raiden Fighters has always been his favorite game to play in an arcade. Thanks again!!! It's good to have you back in an active role =)
