Re: Capcom Home Arcade

Yeah, but if the case was just a regular slab it would be more comfortable, there's no denying that. The case is very much form over function. Happy to hear the emulation is good though. The thing is - it's so huge and could unbalance so that you have to set it up carefully anyway so putting a cush...

Re: Capcom Home Arcade

Am I the only person who doesn't hate this? I mean yeah, for the price, I want the entire CPS 1&2 library (the important bits anyway). But it's not a terrible product, it seems decently built and the emulation is good. I don't think us lunatics who own cabs are the target audience, although the pri...

Re: Your Top 20 grails?

This are the top ones (not in order) I managed to buy on PCB and will treasure forever. Ghouls n Ghosts Altered Beast (Yes I love it. Only crazy people don't! :) ) Rush n Crash (AKA Speed Rumbler. A dream purchase for me) Prehistoric Isle in 1930 (much more fun and with more variety than the sequel)...

Re: Blazing Star

Best way to get high score is to milk the bosses of gems and to collect all the secret gems. As long as you don't miss gems their value just keeps going up.

I love this game but I'm not that good at it. I really enjoy playing though.

Is that SF4 ?
Exactly what I thought. Looks graphically a lot like SF4

I'll wait to see what other people think of this before I buy. I enjoy the original Neo Geo games especially SS2. It would need to have better gameplay for me to buy

Re: Neo Geo Mini

Big fan of the Neo Geo, but i'm not that interested in playing the games on a small-screen. I like the look of the mini, and I hope it sells but it's just not for me.

Re: Are you a feeder?

Whenever I get a new PCB, I can never bring myself to continue after the first credit. I restart almost immediately. Credit feeding has always left me feeling underwhelmed and disappointed in a game. For me it eliminates the motivation to come back and complete it on 1 credit. You are just like me....

I pre-ordered this on the 2nd release. They must be making at least 800 copies of this. Looks pretty good. I'm glad they are taking their time with it.

Nice info above. My recently picked up Daimakamura conversion is a CPS DASH A-board. God knows what game it was from originally of course. I'll have to look through my other CPS boards and see if I have any more stickers of this type - can't say I'd ever noticed before! ghouls.jpg Very nice looking...

Re: Final Fight A-Board "CPS DASH"

In that case will older boards that have slowdown have it lessened by running on CPS dash A board? Yes, pretty much, if the slowdown cause is lack of CPU time. But then some games on other platforms use this kind of slowdown as gameplay mechanic (Cave Stuff as example) :lol: Thanks, I haven't notic...

Re: Final Fight A-Board "CPS DASH"

What defines the gameplay speed is the video interrupt. Having higher CPU clock means it can execute more instructions between each video frame. Basically means it will slow down less than the older board on a screen full of stuff that need to move. Anything left of CPU time the game doesn't need w...

Final Fight A-Board "CPS DASH"

Recently got hold of a Final fight arcade pcb and noticed the A-Board has a printed sticker saying "CPS DASH" on it.

What does this mean? I thought CPS Dash was used for later games. Thank you.

Re: Forum questions, suggestions and bugs.

It annoys me when people are selling arcade pcbs and they don't post photos. They should be compulsory. All that happens is me (or someone like me) then has to message them and ask to see photos. Compulsory photos would smooth the whole buying/selling process somewhat. Also people should have to st...
