      I don't know about the Net Boot Image but I have an original Melty Blood Actress Again Cart and it will not run unless I'm using a Japanese Region BIOS (it will boot with the multi bios in Japanese region mode).

      Even the cart version of this game is super finicky it usually takes me 2-3 tries boot, no idea if it's a voltage thing, a dirty connector thing or something else. Definitely one of the more picky carts I own.

      The cart only works on a Japanese BIOS by design, the country byte is set for only Japan. The netboot image sets this to 0xff.

      My personal experience with NAOMI carts is that they work a lot better outside their shell :D

      ..and then check the largest game available. .. Melty Blood Actress Again. One note I need to add here is that v6 would not load. I had to use v1 and it worked just fine.
      I can confirm that v6 does not work for me either
      Interesting...if it works with V1, that's good news.

      can this be modified for other games? there are a few netboot images that will only work with the JP region:

      Guilty Gear XX Reload
      Jingy Storm
      Metly Blood Act Cadenza A

      Well it can, but the game might not work due to missing assets, easiest way is to try, just change byte: 0x428 to 0xff.

      Melty Blood Version A is actually broken, if you select the fighter called Kohaku the game will crash.

      Yeah, before I tweaked the voltages just about every Naomi game worked just fine, BUT I only adjusted the JVS power supply voltage. I had already checked all the voltages to the Naomi itself coming from the Sun PSU and they were fine to start with.

      So this leads me to wonder how/why was this affecting the booting of the game. The JVS still checked out in test mode and showed that it was active and had power prior to the adjustment. I wouldn't have thought on a JVS it would have been that big of a deal. What are the AW conversion looking for from the JVS that would trigger this? Didn't @Darksoft say the AW conversions are pulling their information for the JVS from the Naomi itself and not directly from the JVS? So what would it care if the JVS has low voltage. I am confused lol.

      Nope, didnt say that. In any case the JVS is connected to the Naomi, so bad power on the JVS means that Naomi won't read from it correctly.

      the code which talks with JVS host MCU is not handle error reply cases, and goes crazy.
      You're right. That can be the issue if JVS is not properly powered.

      BUT the Naomi 1 and 2 games worked just fine. Do they just kind of ignore some of it where the Atomiswave stuff does not?

      *Edit* I see where he mentioned the AW-Conversion code not being as robust .. sorry.
