Yeah to me there is no indication it's a taito cab, but I'm far from an expert on vewlixs

Aww okay, good to know, thanks guys. There are some clear signs but I thought maybe there was a chance it was a model for an unfamiliar game. Without knowing all the differences between Vewlix releases, thought it was worth a shot to ask. :oops:

is this legit? https://www.ebay.com/itm/CPS-Dash-1-5-Q ... SwggRf8YgB

i've been tracking this game for years and I've seen the price increase every time it comes up. I've seen a naked C&D board (not even guaranteed working according google translate) sell for maybe $800 on yahoo auctions. The last sale i saw here (granted, it was in a case) was $1k.

Have prices come down a bit, or is there some new bootleg mechanism method i'm not aware of?

The sellers other items include a mix of bootlegs and original pcb's so ... i dunno.

It's a conversion running decrypted roms. Definitely not worth the asking price. It doesn't even have the plastic case.

Ahhh ok thanks!!

One of the sellers screenshot says "By Turkish Bullet" on the bottom presumably because it's stolen from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQPiXqX4qEg

:palm: I understand the monetary motivation but this hobby is so wildly niche... I don't understand the need to deceive such a tiny market.
