Re: Blurriness Sega Blast City

Just saw that the "PLAY" font are redish and blurry compared to the "FREE" Your color convergence is off. To tell the truth, convergence is something I'd not try to adjust if you're not experienced. I don't know what kind of monitor you have but traditionally the tube convergence is adjusted by rot...

Re: Change Air Blade Battery leaking

I'm dig out my Change Air Blade from storage tomorrow and check it out - I remember it having an empty battery holder. As far as I know the game does NOT have a suicide battery - the battery is only used for high scores etc.

It's great. Especially the games that support two motion controllers. Only downside is the crappy resolution but you don't notice when you are playing a game.

Honestly I have no longer any interest in playing any console games without VR.

Re: Need help: Weird CPS1 Magic Sword issue

Ok this is not going to help you at all, but I'm just wondering how these c-boards can be so brittle. I have loads of cps1 games and they seem to be pretty much indestructable, but both of my two magic sword pcbs have broken c-boards (gameplay is ok but colors are wrong). Really annoying, considerin...

Re: Streets of Rage 1 on Mega Play, does it exist?

Out of interest, do you know where that Gunstar Heroes was acquired from? I bought mine from ebay some 10+ years ago. Absolutely no recollection who the seller was. Looks like eBay's purchase history only goes to 2014 and I have deleted all the purchase-related emails so I'm sorry I can't help you ...

System16.com is now fixed not to list SoR1 for Mega Play....and I have one less game to find in order to complete my collection! :)

Re: Streets of Rage 1 on Mega Play, does it exist?

I don't know what Gunstar Heroes looks like on a megadrive, but I guess these are the main differences between console and arcade versions ("pre-game" instruction screen + credit/insert coin texts). It's been a VERY long time since I've played this but the number zero in the top is lives and in arca...

Re: Streets of Rage 1 on Mega Play, does it exist?

I thought Gunstar Heroes was a legend too but I saw one on the market zone of a uk forum. @Arttu: any pics of your Gunstar Heroes ? Well, the cart itself could be a bootleg as it looks like any other Mega Play cart, but Gunstar Heroes is the only Mega Play cartridge that I own that has instructions...

Those Streets of Rage images on that flyer are of the 2nd game. :penser: Hehe, okay that explains quite a lot :) I have never owned a megadrive/genesis myself and have never played Streets of Rage (1 or 2) so I didn't notice that but it did cross my mind that the SoR1/pics on the flyers could be a ...

http://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/Sega_Mega-Play Thanks for the link, that's another "proof" that Streets of Rage 1 does not exist on Mega Play, but then again that page does not include, for example, Gunstar Heroes... ...and of course this doesn't mean that the game actually exists, but ... http://i.i...

Streets of Rage 1 on Mega Play, does it exist?

System16 lists it for Mega Tech and Mega Play but MAME has only Street of Rage 2 on Mega Play. I would find it weird that it was released both on Mega Tech and Mega Play. Is there a definite list of Mega Play games that really did/do exist? Mega Play carts seem to be very rare.... I have only manage...

Re: Two CPS1 Magic Sword PCBs - wrong colors - C-board failure?

I know this might sound all wrong and hostile (not intended, I _AM_ very grateful for your answer) but getting a new B-21 chip so it can be modified to act as a B-13 chip is probably more expensive than buying a working Magic Sword with working c-board..?

Two CPS1 Magic Sword PCBs - wrong colors - C-board failure?

I have two Magic Sword PCBs (both US versions) with messed up colors. The other one has almost correct colors (only the fonts + status bar is incorrect), but the other one is worse. Sounds and gameplay work perfectly. I can "transfer" the glitches from one board to another by swapping the C boards. ...

I own a Valtric PCB and am not interested in Psychic 5 and Argus at all, so I guess I can consider myself lucky! :)
