Its punishing time again.

Recieved Growl (sidescrolling hack and slay made by Taito) and Crime City (side scrolling shooter by Taito, very similar to the classic Rolling Thunder made by Namco).

Ah, Growl is one of my favourites (take a look at my avatar, it's the last boss from that game:))! The only beat 'em up I can play properly (as in, having fun while playing it, it's pretty hard still). Really, really weird game if you pay attention to what's actually happening, with some of the greatest voice samples and engrish ever. :) I just wish I had a 4-player control panel...

Hi !

You are right...the voice samples are really great; engrish at his best :wink: )

I have a 4 Player Arcade machine. So i think its time to work on a 4 player adapter for growl.

BTW: The music is fantastic. Reminds me of Gunfrontier (the same sad melancholic theme...gunfrontier has one of the coolest intros i have ever seen and the last boss fight is terrific)

Back to growl: I think you have lost if you loose your weapon (best ones are the whip and the sword).

Ah yes, it's by the same composer; Yasuhisa "Yack" Watanabe (who also did Border Down, Elevator Action Returns and Metal Black which is my favourite, to name a few). A very good and varied soundtrack indeed!

"Get lost, you wisp" :lol:

Ohhhh...all these soundtracks rock.
Especially the Border Down music is extreme untypical for a shoot em up.

*i would call it "jazzy"*

New pcbs arrived today.

1) Hellnight (brilliant lightgun shooter made by konami in 1998; uses the M2 hardware).

I got the pcb with all the three lightguns (2 pistols and one pumpgun).
The game is a nice clone of the famous "the house of the dead" made by sega.
The pumpgun rules.

Really nice game, and it was damn cheap *hurrah*

2) NBA Jam Extreme (ok another Basketball game, this time with 3d graphics).

Awaiting further packages.
:wink:

Hi !

Very nice Strikers 1999 kit.

Little update for my arcade collection:

Newzealand Story (very nice cude Jump and Shoot game by Taito)

First the pcb has no sound. I used different arcade cabs, checked the - 5 volt etc. etc.: result: no soudn at all

At last i noticed a very very small thin wire on the jamma connector.
This wire went from pin 10 (component side) to pin 10 (solder side) :shock:

So i desoldered the wire and VOILA the pcb runs perfect...with sound.
:wink:

model 2 & 3 share the same pinout if i remmeber correctly, only the special controls that differ (from game to game) but since hotd uses lightguns i dont think it'll matter.

i made an adapter once but its long since sold and i dont have the pinout chart anymore, im sure a sly google session will suss it out tho :)
if not there are adapters for sale on excellent/cosmico...

nice find btw.. hotd rocks!

Hi !

Thx for the information.
The normal connection will be no problem.
The problem is the sepcial connection for the gun i/o board.

Oh happy day! Finally got myself a complete mushi kit. :D

Image

All the artwork, instructions, etc are brand new, never used. The auction didn't mention the box, but the guy included the original box and bubblewrap! What a treat. Got it from Yahoo.jp auctions for $762 including Rinkya fees. A pretty good deal I think. :D

The guy also gave me the mushi soundtrack CD (complete/mint), one mushi promo page, one mushi promo postcard, and Ibara and Pink Sweets promo pages, all in brand new condition protected in plastic sleeves. Not sure what any of those are worth though (the back of the Ibara one has directions on how to make a cut-out finger fan thingie out of the promo page).

Just got it today, too bad I can't play it til I make a board for it. When I tried connecting it to my cab it was like the connector was too tight for the board and I kept feeling like I was about to break the thing. Also, that is one small PCB. Compared to my two others that shit is tiny.

Nice kit Sven. Seems after you bought my extra artwork we paid about the same though. :wink:

It's nice that mushi kits are finally somewhat affordable. Not sure how long that will last however.

Strahl is a nice shooter.Did you get an original one or a bootleg version ?

Meanwhile im am hunting down a lost world kit (model 3 pcb with guns, gun pcb, sensors and amplifier).

Did you ever had a time crisis pcb ? Do you know how to make a jamma adapter for this game ?
I could buy a time crisis kit from the same guy who sold me the house of the dead kit.
