Background removal codes

Postby d9x » Sun Apr 24, 2011 11:13 am

Got some codes to remove the backgrounds for some CPS1/CPS2/NeoGeo games. These are for sprite ripping and related things.

[sf2], [sf2ce], [sf2hf], [ssf2], [ssf2t], [hsf2], [sfa], [sfa2], [sfz2al], [sfa3], [dstlk], [nwarr], [vsav], [vhunt2], [vsav2], [ringdest], [cybots], [sgemf], [xmcota], [msh], [xmvsf], [mshvsf], [mvsc]

[fatfury1], [fatfury2], [fatfursp], [fatfury3], [rbff1], [rbffspec], [rbff2], [garou], [kof94], [kof95], [kof96], [kof97], [kof98], [kof99], [kof2000], [kof2001], [kof2002], [kof2003], [svc]

http://pastey.net/149338

Most of these except the boldface use ROM writes. With the NeoGeo ones you have to turn them on before the start of the fight, and the user can control the BG color by changing one value.

Nice work, I'll look at adding them another time though as my cheat utils depend on each <action> being opened and closed on the same line, which I guess is a throwback to using my own code rather than standard XML libraries.

Changing the utils is probably a smaller job than changing the XMLs but I'm midst adding some features to the utils to help with MESS cheat files and don't want to risk breaking other stuff.

Update: http://pastey.net/149504 (diff)

These now remove the HUD for the sf2 games, sfa, dstlk, nwarr and cybots.

Also, the codes for those plus sfa2 & sfz2al were dropping some desirable sprites, so I took out the minimal amount and left comments telling what stage to pick to avoid the rest. That's why some backdrop select codes are included that were missing or had errors.

If someone out there wants to get into making ROM codes, this would be a nice starter project. ;)

But they would not get any credit for the cheats, as per cheat.txt:-

As new clones are added I will add the cheats and give credit to the
original author for the clones as long as the conversions are relatively
straightforward.


I've never taken a credit for a clone ROM cheat when I didn't find the original cheat and I've added 100s of clones. As it's not actually a cheat just adding the parent is probably more acceptable then if it was an actual Invincibility cheat or whatnot. Don't worry about it if you don't want to, it would be a big job and people who really want the effect for sprite ripping can always use the parent set.

Can these type of codes be done for other games/boards? Because there are already other emulators that disable backgrounds for CPS1,2,3 and Neogeo games, but I would love these kinds of cheats made for those Konami and Taito boards.

Wait, what emulator can do it for CPS3?

All of these cheats work by hijacking code intended for something else, like screen-flashing effects. It's kind of lucky that they are even possible. This may or may not work for other drivers.

The general solution is to figure out how the backgrounds are laid at a low level and then modify the emulator itself to ignore them, which I guess is what those other emus do.

Final Burn Alpha can disable CPS3 layers now. It doesn't work quite like the CPS2 and Neogeo games though. But I don't know if it's because of the way CPS3 works or because FBA doesn't do it correctly.

UPDATE:

I'm commenting a lot of the background cheats from the 0.153 cheat file out, the use of commas in the action statements is causing MAME to crash intermittently on startup on 64 bit builds with those games. I'll edit them and re-add them as time permits to get rid of the commas. It's proving a major PITA at the moment, I've edited a lot of them but I'm going comma blind so I'm knocking them on the head for the time being.
