By the way, was there ever a sit-down/deluxe version of the Assault cab? I suppose not?


Assault was just a conversion kit in Japan.

After I reminded them, they got their Night Striker cab fixed and will put it back up for play.

Re: The emulation thread...

At this point I'd way rather see Distopia than DDP Campaign Version. But fuck, why not wish for both? I do kind of like the mystique that surrounds this stuff. In the late 90's when I first moved to Japan, there seemed to be tons of untapped game knowledge... at least to the gaming world. Akihabara...

Re: The emulation thread...

R-Gear only has 2 complete stages - there's data for other stuff though. Yes, it is not just about the money but about who you know and who trusts you. Money definitely helps though. I am now getting offered protos but they aren't cheap - average one is about the price of a new Cave kit. It's been a...

Been awhile since I have come back from my time travel expeditions with prototype and rare game updates. Dive Bomber Squad 急降下爆撃隊 - completely dumped and released - will be in the next MAME release - this took a lot of work Hangzo - to be dumped - it's classic sidescrolling action not a beat'em up V...

Hangzo is developed by HOT B actually and is not a beat'em up, it's a normal 2D ninja action game!

Re: The emulation thread...

:o Congratulations. I never expected stuff like this surfacing on the open on yahoo. I was always under the impression deals like that would only happen in a inner circle especially considering the arcade collector scene. It's due to discussing with the seller on acquiring his other protos....he pr...

Seems like it was an IP license so that is the style they intentionally went for and this is circa 1987.

Looking for Distopia still...there is a lead on this that when FACE went under, a bunch of Toaplan PCBs including Distopia were found in their warehouse. Burning Street was developed by Givro, check out Cyber Brawl on 32X for their other 2D fighter work. I'll announce something from Seibu Kaihatsu n...

I have a hard time figuring out how a board this long will fit inside a candy cab. Do you have a picture of such a motherboard? I'm really curious to see this.


Looking at it, maybe 1.5 the size of the MB ROM board which is the size of bigger PCBs, nothing unusual like with Atari games.

Same hardware, it is F2 but only runs correctly on the small F2 mobo. There are different mobos :o how do I know what's what? I have a original Metal Black where the motherboard is about 5-6 cm longer than the game board. Would this be the big mobo? The long one is about 2x the length of the Metal ...

The Internet seems to be exploding on Sonic Bros today but no love for Metal Black EX. Do I not count? :x But a serious question: Could I swap the roms onto my regular Metal Black or does the hardware differ in significant ways? Same hardware, it is F2 but only runs correctly on the small F2 mobo.
