Common Issues / Questions

Black screen

Edit "initiald.ini"
Edit "fullscreen=1" to "fullscreen=0"

If you get a DVD Drive Error when launching the game

Having a DVD drive may cause a specific error with the game (?!) so you'll need to patch the exe to get past this
Get a program like HxD here (Free)
Within HxD, open the "amdaemon.exe" from "package" folder
Use the Go to function and enter: 225534
Change the "74" to "EB"

If you already had SegaTools manually setup

Find these files: aimeio.dll, idzhook.dll, idzio.dll
Rename to: aimeio.original.dll, idzhook.original.dll, idzio.original.dll
Find 'segatools.ini' and rename to 'segatools.backup.ini'

I ran "start.bat" but it didn't work!

Do NOT use "start.bat" with TeknoParrot! Run the game via TeknoParrot and the appropriate exe mentioned above

Running game from various Drive letters

Game MAY need to run from C: only right now, try to see if it helps if you're having trouble with another drive letter.
