Hoot by Koto at 2:49 PM EDT on August 27, 2017
Hi,

Long time ago, Knurek use to update for us all the Hoot sets he can, but this project was unfortunatly discontinued.

I'd like to continue this, but I do not have any idea even how to start.

- Where can I find new sets?

- How can I make them playable with the my current version of Hoot?

- How I can make work new sets? (For example, I remember Windjammer was not avaliable and I don't know if it has been done)

Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance.

See ya

Sets are pretty much in the same place as the rest of systems
They just haven't been updated in years.

If not, there should be someway to made new ones.

If you got the game images you can create new sets using the tools/files hosted at the Hoot website. Feel free to contribute the resulting sets, I'm sure other appreciate it as well.

There is also this site, which has a lot of other ripkits.

Thanks for the links. You guys have experience with those tools? No idea of japanese, so a little (lot) of help would be really apreciated.

Rebumping this thread.

There's some Neo Geo sets not included in the actual XML: Windjammers, Karnov's Revenge, Puzzle Bobble 2... Maybe some others too.

I have tried to make Windjammers playable following how others roms looks and by comparing with M1 frontend XML, but with no real idea about how I'm doing... This is how I done:

First, I have rename M1 and VX bin files extensions to M1 and VX respectively.

Then, I added this informaton to Data East XML:

    <game>
        <name>[Neo Geo] Windjammers</name>
        <driver type="generic">neogeo</driver>
        <driveralias type="Arcade">Data East</driveralias>
        <options>
            <option name="adpcm_size" value="0x0400000"/>
        </options>
        <romlist archive="wjammers">
            <rom type="code" offset="0x00000">065-m1.bin</rom>
            <rom type="adpcma" offset="0x000000">065-v1.bin</rom>
            <rom type="adpcma" offset="0x100000">065-v2.bin</rom>
            <rom type="adpcma" offset="0x200000">065-v3.bin</rom>
            <rom type="adpcma" offset="0x300000">065-v4.bin</rom>
        </romlist>
        <titlelist>
            <title code="0x00">A</title>                                                                                        
            <title code="0x01">B</title>                                                                            
            <title code="0x02">C</title>                                                                    
            <title code="0x03">D</title>                                                        
            <title code="0x04">E</title>                                                                        
            <title code="0x05">F</title>                                                                                
            <title code="0x06">G</title>                                                            
            <title code="0x07">H</title>
            <title code="0x08">J</title>                                    
            <title code="0x09">K<title>                                                    
            <title code="0x10">L</title>
            <title code="0x11">M</title>                                                
            <title code="0x12">N</title>                
            <title code="0x13">O</title>                                                                
            <title code="0x14">P</title>                                            
            <title code="0x15">Q</title>                                                
            <title code="0x16">R</title>                                                                                
            <title code="0x17">S</title>                                                                        
            <title code="0x18">T</title>                                                            
        </titlelist>
    </game>

Of course, tracks codes and names are just random, cause I don't know where is each file, and adding all codes possible I could if Hoot load the whole thing.

Unfortunatly, all I get is this error message: Description file load error.

Someone could help me with knowledge could show me what I have done wrong? Thanks

See ya
