Tetris: The Grand Master ZN-2 to PSX conversion

Hack of Tetris: The Grand Master

Description:

This patch modifies the Tetris: The Grand Master ZN-2 binary to allow it to run on regular retail PlayStation hardware.

All the ZN-2 board specific hardware accesses (ROM, EEPROM, 4MB RAM, JAMMA I/O, QSound, Country ROM) have been replaced or patched out.

The button mapping is configured to match the Namco Arcade Stick / Hori RAP2 layout.

In order to run this you will need to:

  • extract the game binary and data from the ROMs (ate-05m.3h and ate-06m.4h), you can use the included extract_tgm.sh script for this
  • patch the MAIN.BIN binary with the included IPS patch(es). The core patch (tgm_psx_v1.2a.ips) is required, the others are optional
  • if you want to add music tracks, apply cdda_music.ips and follow the instructions in cdda_music.txt
  • compile bin2exe_tgm.c and convert the patched MAIN.BIN binary to a PSX-EXE (”./bin2exe_tgm MAIN.BIN MAIN.EXE”)
  • master a disc with the extracted ROM contents, the converted PSX-EXE, and the included SYSTEM.CNF file (”mkpsxiso TGM_PSX.xml” or “mkpsxiso TGM_PSX_CDDA.xml”)

v1.2a changes:

  • Fixed issue with CD-DA music playing at double speed under certain circumstances

v1.2 changes:

  • Fixed the short freeze on section change
  • Improved compatibility with some emulators when using CD-DA music
  • The previously optional CdSearchFile replacement patch is now included directly in the main patch

v1.1a changes:

  • Added an optional patch that adds support for CD-DA music playback (see cdda_music.txt for more information)

ROM / ISO Information:

  • 78c2b1965957ff1756c25b76e549f11fc0001153 ate-05m.3h
  • c9262e8de14c4a9489f7050316012913c1caf0ff ate-06m.4h
