I just want to try to inject a bit of positivity in this thread and thank Darksoft, Smokemonster, and everyone else who makes this community a better place, and enables us to enjoy these fantastic products that, lest we forget, have come into play egregiously past the shelf life date of the consoles involved.

We can all achieve more if we can just remember that we all love this hobby, and should be grateful to the people that make it possible for us to continue to enjoy it.

Nobody's trying to be needlessly selfish here. Everyone has a valid point, but at the end of the day, I have to agree with Smokemonster.

Besides. This is a very friendly forum. Nine times out of ten, if you ask for help, you'll get it.

I speak from experience.

I am curious. I assumed we are explicitly not to share packs and such here for legal reasons right? I have some decrypts I did myself and packs, but haven't responded to any requests because I assumed we weren't allowed. Am I incorrect? Maybe the discussion is confusing me.

that link comes from the 1st post in this thread.
before people became rude, all i was stating was that i was seeding the torrent link that ALREADY exsisted. Share to care...
I didnt create the rom pack, i didnt create the torrent file, i am merely just seeding it to keep someones hard work alive

and as for the Smokemonster post:
"That is the very definition of entitlement.
Buying Darksoft's multis do not give you the right to do anything with my EverDrive Lists, period."

i dont touch your everdrive lists and i never have lol as my post says i simply seeded the torrent that is on the 1st page of this thread , which you posted
i am trying to help keep it alive.

anyways i am done with this <3

wow you guys are so high up...... you buy the everdrives and the multis and then you are coy about where to get the roms... like you aren't doing what everyone else does....


let me guess SmokeMonster you are dumping all the roms that you own and are in compliance with DCMA rules......

@Darksoft asked me if we can all just get along. So on that note. I love you Smokemonster. Together we all can make the arcade scene more fun and understandable. We are all children of God. May we give grace to each other as the good Lord gave to us. I'm sorry. If your not religious than i can offer this... "One love" - Bob Marley

Do you have a link to 0.4b? I only see 0.3b there.
Here you go. I have to search on google because I saw youtube have people playing version v0.4 and the link we have here only for v0.3. At first, I wasn't sure if this is version v0.4, but after downloading I look at the date then I sense it's the v0.4 because both files are the same. Folder - Google Drive

Meh, I don't really care for ROM hacks.
Even when they clearly make the game way better as in the case of @rtw 's Bubble Bobble Black

Only one real exception to this rule... That fan hacked 3 player Final Fight.


Word around the camp fire; Capcom's original intention was always for a three player fighting game.
Something they soon achieved/exceeded afterwards with the release of Captain Commando...
But at that time, and still new to the CPS1 hardware (game was actually developed on a X68000) it had to be cut.

Wish the fan hack could have redux'd the life bars somehow, I hate how the 3rd bar blocks so much of the action.X/

I need to try that hack - is it possible to run it on original hardware?

I haven't attempted to run it on a real CPS1 no...
I'm sure compatible versions have been made/are likely floating around the net because that latest Chinese 18-in-1 CPS1 multi, it comes included/burned.

So I have two questions;
1. Has anyone fixed the graphics issues during the attract sequence of SSF2T?

2. Does anyone make a rounded ribbon cable for the LCD screen?

Graphic issues in the attract sequence of SSF2T? Can you please explain? I haven't seen any errors/glitches.

Yes, its just a IDC cable.
I have attached the two parts that appear to have a graphics issue. The black box on the Ryu screen and the border around "winners dont use drugs". Both look like they are graphics issues. Please let me know if I'm wrong.

Pretty sure this doesn't happen on mine with any of the ST revisions- though I WILL say that in the past, if the A and B boards aren't seated well enough, ill get plenty of graphical issues on any and all games. Usually ill separate the boards and reseat a couple of times before rebooting. Making sure its connected really firmly etc. Common install issue is testing without the shells on and getting those solid red/blue/etc screens; usually doing a good reseat does the trick if everything else was installed correctly.

Haha totally man!

Yea @pfitz1982 if I put my brightness up that high I can see these "errors" as well.
Thing is they aren't "errors" caused by the Darksoft hardware (or actually errors at all hence the ").

Original boards will also behave this way IF you jack the F outa the brightness.
I recommend you run the color check from the CPS2 test menu and dial your shit in bro. :rolleyes:
