Atomiswave in Maximus Arcade
Demul has been a tricky emulate to setup for Maximus Arcade, but thanks to chillinwater’s autohotkey script I have it running in Maximus arcade now. I believe chillin is part of the hyperspin team (or at least helps with their autohotkey scripts). A big thanks goes out for his work.
Warning: If you don’t set it up correctly the script may make demul freez and hard to kill, I couldn’t even kill it through control alt delete. The only thing I found that worked was to open a word document.. and shutdown your machine. The shutdown process kills demul but asks you if you are sure you want to shutdown because you have a word .doc open (click no). So this may take you a few tries.
Atomiswave can emulate a few games that may interest you, this includes fist of the north start (a fighter), Dolphin Blue (similar to Metal Slug), Demolish Fist (beat ‘em up), knights of valour (beat ‘em up), rumble fish (figher), and neogeo battle coliseum (another fighter). Guide after the jump
Step 1. Make sure you can run Atomiswave games through Demul without Maximus. There’s no point of integrating it into Maximus arcade if you can’t run it by itself.
Step 2. Download this zip file http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Q7KVY0N7
Step 3. In this zip file you will find 3 files. settings.ini, atomiswave.exe, and atomiswave.ahk. Place all of these files in your Demul folder (the same folder you find the demul.exe).
*note* The .ahk file can be used to edit the autohotkey script if you need to, most people won’t need to edit this script. If you have no idea what i’m talking about just ignore this.
Step 4. Set the autokeyscript labeled atomiswave.exe as your executable and set your roms directory (I used the commodore 128 emulator to set it up).
Step 5. Set the command line to %name
Step 6. Add the “.zip” extension under the scan tab
7. Under the Exit tab check off “close additional ….” and “close specific …” and add demul.exe and atomiswave.exe underneath (demul.exe alone might be good enough).
