Battle Gear 4 Tuned – Tuned some more…

Jan 28th, 2011

Following on from my resolution mods for Raw Thrills, we move to Taito.

I’ve done a lot of work for some customers overseas with Battle Gear 4 Tuned – The game is very popular in Australia and certain parts of Asia, yet the game is uncommon in UK. Shame as it looks like a really good driving game.

Anyway Tuned Professional increased the resolution to 1360×768, nice addition.. As most CRT cabs are now getting refurbished with LCDs, it would be nice to upgrade BG4 Tuned to support something more exciting than 800×600, and let’s face it 800×600 on a 16:9 LCD looks not so good.

Luckly with a bit of “tweaking” the game can support different resolutions, including 1920×1080..

    Doesn’t increasing the resolution slow the game down?

    BG4 Tuned can run at 720p, the Professional version with the LCD/6-speed clutch runs at that resolution, not got the original TypeX+ setup to test, but I would imagine 1080p would be too much for it’s default configuration, but TypeX+, like X2 can have it’s video system upgraded.

    No you need a Taito JVS I/O board, Taito RS232 Motor controller board and Taitio servo wheel setup to play the game. It’s a shame they locked it to a Taito JVS, I mean JVS is JVS, but the actual wheel isn’t analogue it’s serial and hooked into COM1.
