Do I need anything specific regarding my Graphics Card.

 
Please note: your Graphics card must be compatible with DirectX® 9.0

To ensure that you have DirectX 9.0c installed and that your Graphics card is DirectX 9.0 compatible please use the following instructions.

DirectX Diagnostic Tool:

From your Windows Desktop.

- Click on the Start button,
- Click on the Run option,
- Type dxdiag and press your Enter key or click OK,
- The Direct X Diagnostic Tool will load up,
- The information displayed will contain all of your system details.
- The last line of the system information will be the version of DirectX you have installed.
This should read DirectX 9.0c or higher.
- To check the DirectX compatibility of the Graphics Card, click on the Display Tab at the top of the screen, look in the Driver details section on the right hand side and check that the last line reads DDI Version 9. If the version is lower than 9 then the card is not compatible with the software and you will encounter issues.

Minimum Specification for the game.

Microsoft Windows 98, Me, 2000 or XP
Intel Pentium III running at 1GHz
128MB System RAM
500MB Hard-drive space
32MB DirectX 9 compatible video card ( See note below )*

Can I use 2 game pads / controllers within the games.

 
Most of the games allow you 2 player option.
Some games will actually be a 2 player game, for example Ninja Kids, which allows you to configure individual game pads, others will be 2 player but you have to take it in turns switching from Player 1 to Player 2 to play the game. This option will only allow you to use one game pad which has to be passed between the players taking part, for example Space Invaders alternates the game play between players in 2 player mode which means you will have to take it in turn to use the single controller.
Note.
This is not an error in the game. The original game machines only had 1 or 2 player controls which is authentically reproduced in this software classic.
How do I set up my gamepad for use within the games.

 
1.You need to ensure that you have the latest drivers downloaded from the controller manufacturers website.Older drivers may cause issues regarding functionality within the game.
2.Ensure that your game controller is recognised as make and model in the game controller option in the Windows Control Panel and that the status is set to ok. Calibrate the controller and check that the directional options and buttons work correctly.
3.Within the Taito Ledgends games you have the Control Settings option. Here you can choose the controller type you wish to use. If your controller is recognised by the game it will be in the control type menu. You can scan through the available options using the left and right cursor arrows on your keyboard.
4.Once you have selected the control type you wish to use for either player 1 or 2 then choose the save and exit option by using the down arrow key to highlight save and exit, then press the return key and when it says save successful, press the return key again to return to game menu.

The Sound / Video in the Interview with the Designer option seems out of sync.

 
If you experience this problem, you can view the movies at the following location on your hard drive

"C:\Program Files\Xplosiv\Taito Legends\Movies\NTSC"
How should I start the game.

 
We suggest that you insert the CD into your drive and allow the autorun option to load up the Xplosiv front end and then click on the Play button from the Xplosiv menu.
We have found that some customers are clicking on the Taito Legends shortcut as soon as the CD is inserted into the drive which means that the game is trying to launch at the same time as the autorun option is starting up. This can cause a resource issue and possibly freeze the machine which will be required to be re-booted.
My system reports error 6001 when I install the software.
The installation fails when I attempt to install the software.

 
Installshield puts support files on your hard drive that it will use to install and also to uninstall, sometimes these can cause problems.

Go to your "program files" files folder and go into
"Common Files\InstallShield\Professional\RunTime".

If "program files" is on the C drive then the full path would be:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Professional\RunTime

In there select the "0701" folder and rename it to something else - eg. "0701old" (right click it and select rename). Then try installing the software again.
When I go to start the game from the menu it reverts back to my desktop.

 
There is an update in the download section at the top of this FAQ information that will resolve the issue once installed. Please read the information regarding the installation of the patch before you attempt to download and install.


I cannot get the F1 and F3 keys to work

 
On some keyboards the F Key has a dual function, which can be switched off and on by using the F Lock button. If this is switched off then you will not be able to select the credit or player option using the F Keys.
I receive an error message: Debug Fatal : Dirdraw:XXXX : Unable to set display mode.

 
This error message usually denotes that the graphics card option cannot support the games requirements. You will need to check the following:

To locate the details regarding your Graphics Card Name / Model and specification please see the details below.

From your Windows Desktop.

- Click on the Start button, (Bottom left-hand corner of the screen)
- Click on the Run option,
- Type dxdiag and press your Enter key or click OK,
- The Direct X Diagnostic Tool will load,
- Click on the Display Tab at the top of the screen,
- When the Tab opens there is a section in an outlined box called Device on the left-hand side of the screen, please check the 5th line which is entitled Approx Total Memory.
This figure should be equal to or higher than the specification of the Graphics card that is required to be used with the game. ( Please check the game specification )
Anything less than this will cause the error message to be displayed and the game not to function correctly.
To resolve this you will need to update the Graphics Option so that the Approx Total Memory is equal to or higher regarding the Graphics Card specification.
Please consult your PC Support or Manufacturer regarding this upgrade.
