Cadillacs and Dinosaurs CPS1 'case'?

Post by FrancoB » February 23rd, 2010, 6:43 pm

I have this C&D board which I presume is CPS1?

I have, however, seen [this] picture of a C&D game:

Are they the same thing, the 2nd just in a case? If so is it possible to buy the case?

Apologies for the noobiness! :oops:

Yes that is CPS1. I don't know much about the cased games, but I have heard them referred to as CPS1.5

No idea what that means in reality though!

You enjoying it?

Cheers chap, still clear as mud then :D

Yeah I frigging love it. It's my favourite game of my childhood. I have had it a couple of months but I haven't really played it that much as I want to get my uber NNC cab project finished first so I can play it in all its glory :)

Me too :D

They had it in an arcade at a holiday park that we went to every year on holiday and its definitely what took most of my 20ps.

They had it set on no continues though so I could only get up to Slice on one credit. I think I managed to get past her(?) once.

I can remember when I first found mame and I nearly wet my pants when I realised I could a) play it and b) play is past Slice :D

There are only a couple of PCBs that I am bothered about having and this is definitely one of them :)

They always come with the grey plastic shell.

I got it for £100 from one of the trade sellers. I had been looking for it on and off for years and I had to buy it when it popped up :D

If you fancy a swap with something for a bit I wouldn't mind if you wanted to borrow it :)

You have the CPS Q Sound version, there is no CPS1 version.
Yours is just without shell - "nude" pcb :awe:

Cover your eyes boys!! :awe:

Dang, so I'm wrong again :lol:

I wonder why it is caseless. Maybe it got smashed up of something :?

Has anyone ever seen empty cases about anywhere?

Since it has the RCA-connectors it's Q-sound. I have seen C&D which run on regular CPS-1 hardware (no doubt boots) and since the game is on the 14-1 (or however many games there were) CPS-1 hack board there is a version out there.

Cads & Dinos is deffo a grey case Q sound game, aka cps1.5, anything else is a bootleg. You have the real deal, it's just minus the case. Some very good info on these at http://www.system16.com/cybercade/, Q sound boards are second only to CPS3 for being a suicide battery nightmare. They can be 'phoenixed' but the process is quite involved afaik.

My phoenixed CPS 1.5 Caddy & Dinos now looks amazing thanks to the label Spectre provided. Case is almost perfect and now has a label that matches the glory of the guts encased. :mrgreen:

Thanks for the info/link :)

Yeah my board has been 'phoneixed'. It also had something done to the audio but I can't remember what :? I wish the sales thread with the info was still alive.
