Their webpage is terrible in my phone, is there a list of changes/additions you could quote?

Q: Is there a complete list of changes in this game vs. the original Progear?
A: No but the obvious major changes are:

→you start out in the second loop of the Japan version with a 500,000 counter, but enemy bullets are slower

→player plane speeds are much faster

→the bomb game is changed

→you respawn in place after a death instead of getting kicked back to the beginning of the stage

→the scoring system is different from the original second loop: gunner mines for diamonds and fighter mines for rings and you you get points for simply killing enemies in addition to the counter game

This is Progay no Arashi, for when you can't play so you tune down the game rather than improving skills. :awe:

Waiting eagerly for Gaygaypachi. :oops:

I'm interested on buying one, but their site says:

10 kits were made for arcades.
They are not for sale.


As the game is freely available for download I converted it to be used with the multigame.

I bought in Ebay a complete kit A + B boards with the B board modified with full All in one CPS2 by Darkshoft.

Everything works perfectly but I found missing the Dungeons and dragons shadow over Mystara


Do you know if that rom was missing from scratch?

Oh,is really updateable?

Looks like mine is old then.

Will take a look later to see What tools are necessary but being that bad with computers that kind of unknown works for me are scaring, because I don't want to destroy what's running fine now :lol:

You open up the B board (few torx acrews), you take out the micro sd and put it in your PC/laptop. Download the file you want, put it in the correct folder and the rest in reversed order, et voila.

Thank you very much!

Damn. Looks like you were using way too much heat. I can take a look at it for you but there will be a tech fee since it is not a defective kit. MP me for details.

Looks like you burnt that good. Don't solder things if you don't know what to do. :(
Hope this can be fixed.

okay, so a bit of a problem with my kit
the games run fine, but the LCD doesn't.
I can still flash new games, but i can't tell what they're supposed to be.
my lcd looks like this:

You can probably fix that by rewriting your sd card. Copy the files to your computer, reformat, copy them all back over to the sd card. Test and let us know.

yup - worked like a charm.
quick question though, my multi isn't auto resetting after a game rewrite, I've got the jumper coming from the little point on the PCB (attached by you) and run to the little connector on the end of the board.
any clues?
