Do I have to do any additional configuration?

EDIT:
Joystick do works launching games in GB. I didn't realize because buttons change. For example, coin button is 4-Axis push button and not Back one...
The Joypad config is not straight forward, as you would expect it to be.
Each game type S11,S12,ZN1,ZN2,RZ needs to have correct buttons mapped.
this is done in the CONTROL tab in gamebase.
all s11 games must have that set in the gamebase control tab
*most other games will work ok with a default ZN1 (6) set.
even though some buttons will not be mapped.

If you look at the s11.cfg, you will see the joypad button map starts at button 9.
1-8 are not used.

btn9=j1b1
btn10=j1b2
btn11=j1b3
btn12=j1b4
btn13=j1b5

so if you use s11.cfg with a zn1 game, buttons will not be configured and you will not be able to start the game or pad will seem broken.

Aqua Rush uses RZ 3 button config
with buttons in a line
x1 x2 x3

Tekken 3 uses (S12) 4 buttons like this
x3 x4
x1 x2

Playing vertical-screen games in fullscreen, the screen becomes horizontal.
Any fix for that?
i can't replictate that problem.
Brave Blade runs vertical in fullscreen for me, but it does look a little squashed.

this is only line in rededer.cfg that might help you.
*every option is same for me.
TurnDisplay = 1 ; Turn the whole display (0-2, 0=default)
i think [1] should be correct setting you are after, to turn from normal landscape mode to portrait (extended vertical).

if your resoultion is set too high for vertical it may rotate screen automatically with your video driver settings.
1366x768 = 768x1336
this will probably cause a crash if it exceeds monitor limits.

Hi Mad,

I'm having some troubles getting the 4 chd games to work.

i have the chd files in the roms folder and in a folder with the same name.

roms/hyperath.zip

Regards

The updated controller.znc file which makes the joypad work, crashes with the 4 CHD files.

updated script
select KEYBOARD for control in the 4 CHD gamebase entries.

it will then use "cdjammakey.znc" instead of "controller.znc" for those games.
hyper athlete keys are A,S,D

Extract /copy the files in the "cdjammakey.zip" (attached above).
c:\GameBase\Zinc\

and change the control in the gamebase tab to keyboard.

Hi Mad,

I am missing the control options and other info.

What is the shortcut key in gamebase?

right click mouse on Control option
or press Ctrl+F1.

select "Keyboad" from the drop down list.

not sure what's wrong with your setup?.
try putting Konami BIOS and game rom in the same CHD folder as well.

C:\GameBase\Zinc\roms\hyperath\
hyperath.chd
hyperath.25c
999a01.7e

C:\GameBase\Zinc\roms\
hyperath.zip (hyperath.25c)
konamigv.zip (999a01.7e)

C:\GameBase\Zinc\scripts\
zinc.txt

C:\GameBase\Zinc\
cdjammakey.znc
controller.znc
ZiNc.exe
renderer.cfg
s11.cfg
rz.cfg
zn1.cfg
kn1.cfg
