Final Burn does Power Drift! - October 04,2000 by JoseQ
The newest version of Final Burn sports some very cool features that were going to be part of the Rumor Mill, but Dave is so fast that he actually released version 0.31 today! You can get version 0.31 from the Emulator Download Page! Not only does this plays Power Drift with some glitches but it also fixes the vertical scanlines found on some nVidia based cards when playing full screen with scanlines on! For Power Drift though, you will need a P3 class type of CPU so be sure to have it before getting too excited. As soon as I get the ROMs I'll post them, but right now I have a Soccer game to play at. I'll be back soon with the file!

Glad to see it's working well for everyone.
It's probably worth mentioning finalburn.ini, and trying
bAppUseVidMemory 0
It *may* possibly speed up some machines (because DirectX is weird).
(If you mess up, just delete finalburn.ini and it'll reset to normal.)
I'm amazed that people are playing it on P2-300s and below!!!!

>As MAME drivers are fleshed out, various fixes will work their way back to Dave's standalone project.

Exactly - they already are in fact! Cheers to Phil S. on the MAME team who is writing the After Burner driver.

With After Burner and Power Drift (just like with TMNTemu), the trick is to just find out ANYTHING about the machine, in order to get started.
The details/perfect emulation usually gets nailed by MAME later on (if they can distract their attention away from all those nudy pinball games ;-)

Dave.

We love you yeah yeah yeah.

It's absolutely great you did it! Maybe
when you feel bored you should take a look
at the current SEGA32X emulators and give
them some help. If a PIII can play SEGA's
arcades, it should run those old 32X
cartbridges too, shouldn't it?

Please go on like this!

It's working great on my Celeron 433 MHz (inferior to PII-450 MHz)

It's very playable, there's no way I could run this game on my PC if it was supported by MAME (my greatest fear)

Dave, thanks for beeing very tallented, and directing your expertise towards very important and classic arcade games.

I would say that Final Burn is a top arcade emulator, that belongs in the MAME/RAINE class.

No, really honey, I think it's just time for a new system. Heck, everybody upgrades every two years anyway, so we're already behind the times. Really, it doesn't have ANYTHING to do with playing "Power Drift", it's just time. Really.

Think it'll work? Nah, me either. :(

Still, a HUGE amount of thanks goes out to Dave on this one. "Power Drift" was the last game on my emu want list. Now I'll just have to pray for some miraculous speed ups. But, hey, if any one can do it, Dave can. Keep up the amazing work!

Oh great magnificent Dave.. You have done so much for us.. But we require so much more.. instead of new games.. how about perfecting the existing ones?

One can spend months trying to perfect small details in an emulator, or one can plow ahead and tackle new hardware.

As MAME drivers are fleshed out, various fixes will work their way back to Dave's standalone project.

I think it's a pretty efficient use of Dave's time to concentrate on more challenging works such as Power Drift and Galaxy Force, don't you?
