Running The Arcade Game Outrun2 Special Tours SDX Natively On PC (Arcade)(Teknoparrot)(wrapper)



#Teknoparrot #Arcade #wrapper

Modern arcade cabinets basically are slightly modified or just stock PCs with Nvidia cards and AMD/Intel CPUs. The games are basically Windows or Linux based and it seems to be quite possible to get those games running on Windows 10 either by providing a special environment or a run time environment for Linux binaries.

Teknoparrot makes this possible providing a wrapper for the game code that runs natively on the PC. This is just a demonstration of the possibilities.

The funny thing about tinkering with this is that you find out why a game runs at 200%, it had to do with the monitor refresh rate. It was set to 120Hz in my case resulting in the 60fps game to default to 200% speed, although the music played good, sound effects were proper, the timer and the gameplay itself was too fast and twitchy.

Setting the monitor to 60Hz made the game default to its native 60fps. And what a game. It’s pretty much perfectly emulated/executed here. Again not so much emulation but more of a wrapper around the code that is executed natively. Kudos to the developers!

  • IMO, if one is going to go the emulating route for Outrun 2, might as well just get the PC version of it. It looks better, it has better support and you don't have to worry about the emulator playing it properly.

  • for some reason outrun only shows garbage graphics. virtua fighter 5 runs flawlessly (but the little fences dosen't seem to be rendered you can only see the particles when a fighter hits them.) and house of the dead 4 works great too.
    do you know what may be causing this issues?

  • It doesn't surprise me standard PC hardware is being used in modern cabinets, just like the consoles have mostly standardised on pretty much the same platform. You truly make that game look easy 🙂

  • I have a new pc now too, and i would love to have OutRun 2 and OutRun 2006 Coast to Coast on it, but due to the Ferrari licence, i could not find the game on steam. Is there a way to still get (one of) these games?

  • Nice stuff Mark, runs super smooth. Makes me wish the Sipermodel Emulator was finished so I could play Star Wars Arcade Trilogy.
    By the way, no Magical Sound Shower? For shame LOL

  • Arcades have used PCs for quite a while now, I noticed when looking on ebay for arcade machines. I think some need an internet connection to authenticate to servers to play.
