Re: WTT Mystic Warriors

There are actually quite a few - but they don't really seem to be documented anywhere (that I could find, anyway). Off the top of my head, rank options are a bit different, and bosses take a lot more shots to go down in non-Japanese versions. The Asian version is also (inexplicably) missing the lev...

Re: WTT Mystic Warriors

You're right - buzzsaw is in all other versions (apart from Asian).

The Japanese version is the only version with the 'correct/balanced' rank, though, from my testing. Seems to be a bit of a running pattern of Konami turning games into quarter munchers for western releases ;)

Re: WTT Mystic Warriors

Well, mid boss/miniboss is possibly stretching it. The buzzsaw vehicle, is what I mean.

I have the Asian version and it's definitely not there. It just scrolls past that section (same on the Asian ROM in Mame). Caught me off guard when I first fired up the PCB.

Would you be prepared to clean and exorcise M72 boards you're not selling? I have a couple that I think might have gone full-on Linda Blair :awe:

Make sure not to change the ELNA caps, all that capacitor acid will make you decompose quicker :lol: Personally, I plan on having a coffin shaped like an oversized DaiOuJou metal box – filled to the brim with ELNA cap fluid (which I can be submerged in). All that acid should help purge my soul of i...

Re: WTB: any Namco System 2 game - Cosmo Gang: The Video, Finest Hour, etc

Is a recapped board a repaired board? :D Possibly a grey area for some, but I'd be fine with a recapped board :) Just so long as the original caps hadn't leaked or anything. I’ve got a rolling thunder 2 for you. ;) Cash ready? :P I think you should be paying me to take that one off your hands ;)

WTB: any Namco System 2 game - Cosmo Gang: The Video, Finest Hour, etc

Can be any System 2 game, except the games that use sub boards (like Final Lap 3) - need it for a ROM swap for Legend of Valkyrie :) However, I’d prefer for it to not be one of the very most expensive games on the hardware. Although I know none of the games on System 2 are exactly cheap these days! ...

I just had my MD1 modded by Videogameperfection - who did an awesome job :) I had the FirebrandX M1 Mini Mega and Voultar RGB Bypass, and am really pleased with it - audio, particuarly, sounds amazing with the Mini Mega. If you're not set on a MD1, though, I'd consider getting The Triple Bypass by d...

Re: You've Got Grail! The Valuation Thread

I'm not saying you have to, vutbif you've ever bought a board from a Japanese PCBshop you know that it's kind of in a league of their own. All boards I have bought over the years have looked new. Just something to take into consideration aswell This is generally true. However, you can still end up ...

Hi all what’s a sensible and fair price for a Japanese PCB version of in the Hunt please.

Thanks
but IMO €350-450 or £900 next month
It's funny because it's true :lolno:

I agree, though, 450 EUR sounds about right for a nice one with seals (ROM rather than Navy).
