Game description: As cars became more and more common on city streets, the Trotmobile came into being. This two-legged, walking metal vehicle could be adapted to a variety of road conditions and purposes: agriculture, civil engineering, and transportation. The industrial revolution continued, increasing the Trotmobile's popularity. People placed their hopes and dreams on the backs of these wonderful machines, marching toward a better life just beyond their reach. Vanilla Beans wakes up to find himself lying on a sun-drenched beach. How did he get there? And, who in the world is the girl standing above him? The girl soon introduces herself as Connie, and Vanilla begins the first busy day of a grand adventure. He'll take Connie home, meet the other members of her band (the Garland Globetrotters), and explore the town of Nefroburg. At the end of this busy day, Vanilla relaxes in the town square where the Globetrotters are performing only to witness a gang of bandits overrunning the town! How things go from here is up to the player. Will Vanilla join the Garland Globetrotters? Or, will he join the Killer Elephant gang? The choices Vanilla makes, the Trotmobiles he builds, and the friends hekeeps are all up to gamers who take part in Steambot Chronicles.

The game turns into monochrome on a software renderer. For more detail, please see Raw Danger!, which uses a slightly-tweaked version of the same graphics engine. MyDreamName

• Unplayable Using any hacks or tweaks is ultimately futile. The game is largely unplayable and requires software mode to fix some of the major glitches. However you'll need a really powerful computer to get this game to run smoothly. Waiting for actualization...soon.

Also for me you can use Hardware and it wont have graphic issue like the line over the screen it will be normal. Sometime when in where you are changing frames or buying a piece of frame on "Hardware" it will black screen until u switch it to "software". there also a little graphic bug with the top left corner of the screen as well map icon but it not game breaking. Lastly little graphic bug when trying to save.

CPU-intensive game. GSdx CRC Hack Level needs to be set to Aggressive to be playable at full speed (HW mode). Other settings, speedhacks (MTVU on) are on default. Heavy use on post-processing effects, currently missing in HW mode. You can also use SW mode in smaller areas without slowdowns. Yuri
