House of the Dead 2 and House of the Dead EX under the MAME and gun wheel don't work

Post by Control4reak on Tue Feb 20, 2018 9:41 pm

Both load into a blank screen with no sound and alt+tab fails to show it running in the background. Any suggestions. ALso, House of the Dead for PC opens in a very small window and doesn't allow any control.

Just curious if anyone has these working yet?

So here are MY opinions/suggestions....

1) (I did not know this) Googling MAME HOTD yields a few posts that have the same error as you (and I) in which the game does not work in MAME.

2) For House of the Dead on PC, I'm assuming you mean House of the Dead 3? Sorry I only have the 16TB drive so I don't know if Chris installed different versions on older drives.

HOTD3 needs something on C: or in the reg to work correctly. The HOTD3 included on the drive can't be configured when you try to click Graphic/Controller Settings (hod3launch.exe).

So this is what I did, goto the google drive @ http://igg-games.com/house-of-the-dead-free-download-1-2-3.html and download the file. Extract and install HOTD3, to ANOTHER folder, DO NOT overwrite HOTD3 that is currently on the drive. Now that this HOTD3 has written the correct files, you can go back to the original HOTD3, click on the hod3launch.exe and config your controllers and screen size.

As a side note, if your going to use HOTD2 from the above link, you need to set the compatibility mode on the exe to WinXP.

Control4reak, You are correct. Mame games are constantly evolving towards (unplayable) to (Working). In Mame HOTD, HOTD2 and HOTDex even with updated audited roms these will still not work. This is not Chris's harddrives fault. Another Mame wheel (Hyper NeoGeo64) plays but the sound is aweful, so I removed it. I hope to be able to include the HOTD, etc. games from another emulator. I'll update this when I do.
