[AC] Big Fight - Dip switch settings

Postby andsuchisdeath » Fri Mar 06, 2015 3:49 am

Does anyone know what the factory defaults are for this board?

I want to know for sure before I start diving in.

Thanks.

A while back an acquaintance of mine ran MAME+ at my request to retrieve some information for the dip switch settings.

I compared it to *both* of the Korean boards I have. What MAME+ lists as SW1 functions actually apply to SW2, and vice versa.

So it appears that the settings are:

DSW3:
1: Unknown
2: Player Select: Off = Coin Slot, On = Select Sw *On
3: Service Mode: *Off, On - All it has is a I/O and CRT Test
4: Hardware Test Mode: *Off, On - RAM/ROM/Sound Tests

DSW2:
1&2: Lives - Default is Off-Off = 2
3: Ticket Dispenser: *Off = 100000, On = 1500000
4: Continue: *Off=Off, On=On
5: Extend: *Off = 100000, On = No Extend
6 & 7: Difficulty: *Off-Off= Normal, On-Off = Easy, Off-On = Hard, On-On = Very Hard
8: Demo Sound: Off = Off, *On = On

DSW1:
It is all coin settings. Default is all off, 1 coin, 1 credit. There is no free play option.

*Defaults.

Here is a picture of the dips for the non-working board I have. They're identical to the working one.

I recently recorded a 1 credit clear of the game at what I am positive is normal difficulty with default lives and extend rate.

I'm curious as to how accurate the MAME+ information is for dips SW3: 1, 2. SW2: 3,4. They don't appear to have any function. Was "Ticket Dispenser" a Tatsumi thing in Japan?

I'm assuming the Japan ROMs are undumped and I understand the board is quite the rarity there. Any information regarding the games reputation/ presence (lack there of) in Japan would be greatly appreciated. Even anecdotal stories would be great if there are any to share.

At one point I remember this board being for sale here, so at least one user has had it. And Shou has as well, probably. Hopefully one of them can chime in. I remember having a similar irk over some game at some time, not knowing the arcade defaults. Annoying.
