I saw this on Emulatronia and decided to give it a go, but couldn't get it working (though I didn't spend too much time with it). You need gradius4.zip in the same directory, which is all fine and dandy, but it's also case sensitive, so I had to unpack gradius4.zip and rename everything in uppercase, then throw it back into a zip..

..and then it complained about needed a file that isn't used by MAME so it's not in the set.

Sooo.... has anyone got a set that works with it, and if so, how well does Hornet work in comparison to MAME? Are there visual differences and/or performance differences?

Personally i don't care for Gradius IV, but I love neat little emulators like these.

Good question, no idea myself as I dont think I have anything to try with it, I reckon anyone with answers could benefit many people here.

I'm told the MAME set should work, you just need to rename one file in it.

It's not playable at all. No graphics are shown.

MAME emulator project @ http://www.mame.net/

Meh. Why did I even bother if it doesn't work? Anyway, from the source I found that these are the ROM requirements:

gradius4.zip = 14,502,296 bytes
837A10.14P
837A09.16P
837A05.14T
837A04.16T
837A14.32U
837A13.24U
837A16.32V
837A15.24V
837C05.27P
837_A08.7S

silent_scope.zip = 14,458,594 bytes
SS830A10.14P
SS830A09.16P
SS830B01.27P
SS830A08.7S

racing_jam.zip = 14,838,073 bytes
676nc01.bin
676gna08.bin

No clue why the archive sizes are included. My gradius4.zip is smaller by about 400K and hornet doesn't complain. Anyway, the filename differences are 837_A08.7S in hornet as opposed to MAME's 837a08.7s, and 837C05.27P as opposed to 837c01.27p in MAME. And the capitalization of course. Note the number difference in the second ROM. Probably a typo on Hornet's coder's part. Maybe the underscore on the first ROM is too. Of course, as Santeri pointed out it doesn't work. In fact, once Hornet loads Gradius 4 nothing seems to happen at all- just the same black box you get if it doesn't load anything. And yes, I tried the emulation options (run/stop/reset) in the menu. Maybe in a future release...

Still doesn't do anything for me other than hog all of my CPU cycles. Maybe if I let it sit for an hour it'd get to an attract mode.
