So I tested this. Basically it looks like mombasajo used the "euro_gameoption.shp" file for his custom scene disk and couldn't work out how to edit the image (which I can't either; I was just going to draw a German flag).

So, if you rename "ger_gameoption.info" --> "ger_gameoption.shp" you get this (which is the same as the "European Challenge" icon):



If you leave it as "ger_gameoption.info" (which can probably be deleted completely, as it serves no purpose), then the game can't find the right image so shows this:



I might leave it as is; this way you know it's a different scene pack

Checked the .IPFs of all car disks.

On a cracked version of "Test Drive II - The Muscle Cars" there were these extra files:
  • camo.rear.info
  • dodge.rear.info
  • gt500.rear.info
  • gto.rear.info
  • stingray.rear.info
To be safe; I removed all 197 files underneath the "cars" folder from Retroplay's installed package; and then copied all the files from the "cars" folders from each of these disks (192 files):
  • Test Drive II - The Duel (1989)(Accolade)[0588].zip [IPF]
  • Test Drive II - The Muscle Cars (1989)(Accolade)[data disk][0591].zip [IPF]
  • Test Drive II - The Supercars (1989)(Accolade)[data disk][0590].zip [IPF]

Yeah the info files were clearly from someone using DPaint to edit those pics for their cracktro texts.

I wonder if any coder could work out how these .SHP work and can be edited?

Would be cool to be able to adjust this image for mombasajo's "Northern Germany Challenge" to say, just have a German flag displayed:



"ger_gameoption.shp" attached.

I've just had a very quick look at the file. It's crunched so we would need to find something capable of decrunching it before we can do anything.

Interesting. Tried using "xfddecrunch" but am told "Not crunched".

I wonder what cruncher was used?

Are we sure this is crunched? Looks to me like it could be interleaved bitplane data?

The XFD decruncher is for a file-id of 'RPck' but the file has 'Rpck'.
So this will not detect these files.
It seems these file formats are different variants.
As the XFD slave also expects byte 9 to be zero, which is not the case in the example file someone needs extract the decruncher from the game main executable and maybe enhance the XFD slave..

Thanks for the information Wepl

All this is way beyond my skill level though.

Great

Up to you Retro, but I would leave "ger_gameoption.info" and not rename to "ger_gameoption.shp"; see my post above.

Btw, I installed everything from scratch using v1.3 beta installer in the zone.
The dat merger skips German Challenge and I have to add it by hand to scen.dat0.

I've upped a new adf with file names corrected and scen.dat2 on the data disk, please try and see if you can get the installer (dat merger) to "pick it up" without the need for a manual edit.

Why is that? This makes it not load any picture and leaves an ugly placeholder. edit: oh so you know it's not the Euro Challenge. Got it. Wish we can edit this file to make it a German flag!

@Toni the game uses audio interrupts. INTREQ is set from the interrupt itself (ack channel int). I don't see how it could be incorrect

There's a DMACON write at 8FA which is possibly suspicious because I suppose you have to wait a while before starting audio. But it seems that it stops audio dma

I've checked with new beta and chipset_hacks. Yes, the music is bad now, so I can experience the bug. But so far no log entries. Is there something to enable?

There are also 2 different audio hack options:

- KS audio.device workaround, it sets period to very low value (4 or so) and assumes audio state goes to zero quickly enough. AFAIK only JIT can cause this if it has translated "too many" instructions to single block.

- Too early AUDxLC update. Some games (Fighting Soccer at least), start audio DMA, then do CPU wait, write new value to AUDxLC and assume AUDxLC has already been copied to internal buffer but if CPU is too fast, AUDxLC gets updated before AUDxLC is copied to internal register. Wrong sample gets played.

Logging added to both.

that would mean that the notes are played at a crazy rate! Maybe it could happen in a sound fx engine, but not in a music player right?
