I’m wondering if point blank 2 even exist on the Namco system 12 hardware? I saw that it runs on this hardware as well. I haven’t seen any pictures and I would like to know if anyone has proof that it really exist. Also, since I have a spare PB2 system 11 pcb, is it possible transfer the necessary flash roms and other things to make it work on a system 12 pcb?

Point Blank 2 definitely exists on both system 11 and 12 as i have both and they play identically

Based on MAME dumps here are all the confirmed versions of the games in this series:

-System NB1 w/V147 POSITION PCB 2421960102 (2421970102)
Gun Bullet (Japan, GN1)
Point Blank (World, GN2 Rev B, set 1)
Point Blank (World, GN2 Rev B, set 2)
Gun Bullet (US, GN3 Rev B)

-System 11 w/GUN I/F PCB 8645960701 (8645970701)
Point Blank 2 (World, GNB2/VER.A)
Point Blank 2 (World, GNB2/VER.A alt)
Point Blank 2 (US, GNB3/VER.A)
Point Blank 2 (Unknown region)

-System 12 w/GUN I/F A4111 PCB 8645960701 (8645970701)
Gunbarl (Japan, GNB4/VER.A)
Point Blank 2 (World, GNB5/VER.A)
Oh! Bakyuuun (Japan, OB1/VER.A)
Ghoul Panic (World, OB2/VER.A)

-System 10 w/EXIO PCB 8906960602 (8906970602)
Gunbalina (Japan, GNN1 Ver.A)
Point Blank 3 (World, GNN2 Ver.A)


System 11 and 12 share the same Gun IF board but nothing else is shared between them
based on the numbering scheme I'd guess there's an undumped System 11 version of "Gunbarl"

FWIW I own:
Point Blank (World, GN2 Rev B)
Point Blank 2 (World, GNB5/VER.A)
Ghoul Panic (World, OB2/VER.A)

Well, I’m glad that I own a working PB2 system 11 pcb with the EMI pcb, but it has a weird issue when using the emi pcb, the sound is very quite even with the volume wheel turned all the way up but normal and functional on my jamma cabinet. I’m still interested in seeing some pictures of that system 12 version :)

If this works there should be a picture of a system 12 point blank 2 pcb
