I assume there's an issue when the cab is bigger than the store, as well.

Dumped some more games recently:

DRIVING PARTY - aka GTI CLUB 2, this is the World release from Europe

ENFORCE - original Japanese version with the analog joystick and stereo sound; to now, MAME only has had the digital joystick version

JURASSIC PARK III - US version of the Konami light gun game, really want to find the Japanese version since it used motion sensors instead of a button to move your character

MANX TT DX Revision D - this is the deluxe version of the game which had a speaker in the muffler and extra sound board to generate those engine and brake sounds right under your ass

Good stuff as always Shou, never knew there was an analog Enforce.

Was also surprised recently that the Japanese version of Dragongun has been found and dumped.

I really want Dragon Gun...I actually have 2 guns from the cab and know a guy here who has 2 PCBs but...

Forgot that I will be dumping TURBO OUTRUN Japan (conversion from OutRun, all of the ones in MAME are export versions), COTTON Revision B Japan and THRILL DRIVE 2 Japan soon. All 3 are in various states of dumping/decryption at the moment.

Dumped:

Chasebombers (Japan) - saw that the JP version wasn't dumped so here it is

COTTON Rev B (Japan) - never seen a Rev B before and the labels are actually hand written from the factory and is a factory conversion

TURBO OUTRUN (Japan) - this is from an OutRun conversion so there must be a dedicated DX board out there too...most are likely dead by now

New dumps

ESWAT (Japan, newer version) - Found this in my own collection, newer version that is a factory conversion from Flash Point to MVP to ESWAT lol

PUNCH-OUT!! (Japan) - So, I originally acquired a Japanese board from a defunct arcade but half of the ROMs were bad. Yesterday, I was able to borrow a working board set and not only dumped them but fixed my PCB in the process. The main difference in this version are that some voice samples are in Japanese and the enemy AI is a bit different.


I may also have a test version of Twin Cobra but need to verify the data.

Random question about the flyer for Eswat: http://flyers.arcade-museum.com/flyers_ ... 187801.jpg

On left of the flyer there is a FUCKN AWESOME painted illustration that was likely going to be used as the main poster image for the game or something, but instead its relegated to a tiny part of this mess of a poster design.

Is there a full version of this piece of artwork anywhere, and did Sega ever use it anywhere else? You would think they would have used it as the cover to the MD version, but that ended up getting something fairly generic instead.

Never seen it before, the game's instruction sheets are far more generic looking.

Thinking more on this, back in my Die Hard days, we sold a Sega Illustrations book published by Books Nippan who was one of our anime distributors. Could've sworn that ESWAT illustration was in there but looks like it is just the MD cover.

Weird book -- tons of native English in it.

I've released the last Model 1 game, SEGA NETMERC to MAME today. The one I've acquired is the only known remaining unit.

It's a VR shooting type of game co created by Sega and Virtuality.

So, I recently pushed these over to MAME:

GUNMEN WARS Rev B (Japan)
Kart Duel (Japan)
OH! BAKYUUUN (Japan)
RACING BEAT (Japan)
SPIDER-MAN the VIDEOGAME (Japan)


Just got a hold of a very rare version of Tao Taido that uses 3 buttons. The original JP location test version used 2 buttons and the regular release uses 6 buttons. I've never seen the US distributed version to see if it is the 2 or 6 button version. Not a great game but interesting how Video System tried to evolve the game to fit the then standards for fighters.

I believe Tao Taido also has 2 players co-op mode vs the computer (3 fighters on screen), which is pretty strange because it isn't a VS boss only game like Dadandarn and Oni The Ninja Master.

I think I recall seeing screenshots of Knuckle Heads where 3 characters were on the screen at once but I've never bothered to play the game.

Which version has that mode in Tao Taido? I recall seeing it before but my board doesn't have it.
