That's a really interesting variant!
I'm going to have to track one down- if anyone has one, please LMK!
also, you may want to separate the RRV driving PCB and the Wangan Midnight/WMR driving PCB, as the Wangan PCB comes with 64MB RAM car installed, while the RRV only has 32, and as such, WMR will only boot with added memory.
Also, the Bloody Roar pcb is a Model "A", and other than red case is identical.
You have an interesting point and I’m not honestly sure- I’ve seen silver (bare metal) model A with the Jamma interface as well on yahoo auctions but they don’t seem as common- my guess is that Namco moved away from the built in io boards in the middle of this timeframe- dunno though
There’s also an unknown b variant that I’ve only seen in a poor quality auction photo. I’ll dig up the image if you’d like
the point of this poll was to determine the most common variants so we would have a good idea of which versions to target first when testing out multi systems.
For instance I used the information here to determine which platforms to use when testing the ATAPI to SD device. so I tested on System 256 and System 246B
While it's good to know about obscure variations, going into depth about them is probably better suited for another thread.
ok no worries!
Im actually interested in purchasing one that can switch between 246 and 256... Any leads?
There are a handful of games that wont work on these though this includes Tekken 4 and Bloody Roar 3.
*Note: Super System 256 isn't included here as Super System 256 only plays Time Crisis 4 and nothing else.
Ahh crud , tekken 4 and br3 are such good games
unfortunately there is no 1 system that can play everything.
Excluding games that require special IO equipment (driving, shooting, touch screen, etc.)
your two best options are
Buy a 256 and play everything except: Bloody Roar 3, Pro Baseball 2002, Smash Court Pro Tournament, and Tekken 4
Buy a 246B or 246C and play everything except: Battle of Yu Yu, Gundam vs Gundam, Gundam Vs Gundam Next, Muscle Grand Prix, Super Dragon Ball Z, Tekken 5, and Tekken 5 DR.
