Crude Buster / Data East Region ?

Post by Gilles54 » May 14th, 2019, 8:32 am

Wondering how to recognize Crude Buster region.

My pcb has the warning screen "only playable in japan" and a mix of english/japanese ingame but the pcb has an "Export" label on it.

Zoomed sticker here : https://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/20 ... 74-exp.jpg

I am getting confused. Is it a japanese version or export ?

Thx!

I seem to recall that my JP board has Japanese in the attract mode.

Japanese pcb is easier, with default dips settings.

It's also the best beat 'em up of all time.

Not sure about that, the game suffers from random changing priorities on the hit/hurt boxes for both the main characters and enemy attacks depending on the stage and difficulty settings, it seems that it has some sort of ranking system, the Md version seem to play better.
