    Saw nothing about this here so.. YEAH! The Taito Type X² board (BlazBlue, SFIV, KOFXII) is essentially a PC running Windows XP. Some people were able to dump BlazBlue Continuum Shift and hack it to run on any Windows based PC.

    This is not an emulator, the games all run natively on the PC.



    Pretty cool huh?



    Read some rumours about a test version of Samurai Spirits Sen being dumped and working too already. I guess we can expect to see KOFXII and others soon!

    Taito Type X2 is a PC. All the machines run Windows XP-Embedded and have PC hardware i.e. Core 2 Duo, Nvidia 7800, etc. The only thing that needs cracking really is the games, which probably has some protection on them.

    This is pretty nice though.

    Where intellect matters
    I highly doubt things like the Xbox and the PS3 have windows XP embedded [​IMG] (unless you were referring to the Taitos)

    I have an integrated HD3200, it's pretty good, I can run any recent games with medium-low settings (even Crysis).

    But this works very slow for me (even with low res and replaced bg), so (and because it's the arcade original) I guess it's optimized for Nvidia cards and intel processors. + you can't adjust any other video-related setting.

    Anyway, while you don't require a extremely high end PC, a decent one is required.

    if only super sf4 would come out in arcades first...but i think console is coming out first..this would have been sweet for a homemade arcade machine when sf4 came out..u could still do it..wonder if well see some bootleg sf4 cabs now.

    You know, what if someone made a homebrew for the Wii to be able to play these games on it?

    That would be badass.

    Dude these games run on a computer that is far more powerful then a wii, and then you would have to emulate that which would require the wii to be about 6 times more powerful. So no.

    Uh no? There are older PCs that are running this at full 60FPS while there are users with powerful computers that can barely start it.

    I'm running it on a laptop, not a gaming laptop, a regular laptop and I can get full 60FPS on it. And my laptop is not in the least powerful. And besides I said "what if" never said that it was possible or it could happen. [​IMG]

    You can't. But you can use dxwnd to make it go into windowed mode.
