Could the arcade machines in Shenmue 3 be modded to run Yu Suzuki's classic games like "Outrun, Hang On, After Burner, Virtua Fighter" !?
If that were to be possible it would be amazing.

To keep things neat, I'm putting all of my mods into one ASI.

You need Forklift (for Shenmue III) and to be running Windows 10.

You may also be required to update your Visual C++ redistributable packages to get running:

https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/VC_redist.x64.exe

To install, extract this archive into `Shenmue3\Binaries\Win64`.

To uninstall, remove MiscMods.asi and the INI file from your `Shenmue3\Binaries\Win64` folder.


Features:
  • Classic Camera Mod
    custom mode is also available, which allows you to modify the camera height, distance and FOV (more variables will be added in the future).
  • NPC Manager fixes
  • No Energy drain while running
  • No Walk Only triggers
View attachment 6456
View attachment 6455
View attachment 6530

To toggle the in-game GUI, press F10.

To enable/disable certain mods at startup, edit the MiscMods.ini file:
INI:
[general]
open_console=true

[mods]
retro_camera_mod=true
npc_fixes=true
no_energy_manager=false
no_walk_only_triggers=true
dump_herbs=false

[npc_fixes]
max_loaded_npcs=256
max_visible_npcs=256
max_npc_distance=25000.0
max_npc_trigger_scale=15000.0

[retro_camera_mod]
customFOV=55.0
customHeight=25.0
customDistance=455.0
customCameraPitchOffset=-5.0

First of all let me congratulate you for creating this mod; I'm currently replaying Shenmue 3 with it and I'm enjoying the game a lot. The classic camera mode gives a wider view and I can appreciate the scenery a lot more and as for the no stamina drain it gives much more freedom to explore whitout being constantly worried on working or buying food.
I was just wandering if there could be an option in the misc mods ini file to enable to play the fishing mini game at any time and if there is any way the framerate could be locked at 60 fps. Anyways great job.

Yes, I've already built functionality for this in UE4 itself and it's compatible with the UE version that Shenmue 3 uses. So it's definitely possible, it's just something I have to start.

Sure, I can look to add that in the next version. As for the 60fps lock, it should be possible but I can't make 100% guarantees right now as it could eventually be something that requires a lot of time. But it's more than possible.

Thanks for the reply.(y) I know you and your team must be full of work with the Shenmue Dragon & Phoenix projects; but I eagerly await you next mod update.:p
As for the arcade machines mod it would be a great complement to your mod and the whole game in general; it could even be a great way to attract other gamers and some disapointed fans back for Shenmue 3, it would even make that mechanic
of picking up the arcade machines with the forklift much nicer.
I can already imagine myself working with the forklift just to pick up an arcade machine with Virtua Fighter and all the other games.:love:
