I've heard this is an issue but I haven't had it come up.Thanks @all for the info. That is rather interesting.
I tested Metal Slug, Kov7Spirits, Dolphin, and I think a KOF for an extended time and they worked. Except Isuka. Which is a pity because its a great game.
Loosing regionfree bios would be a bummer, though.
What I read is that AW games are a problem if you boot two of them after each other. Something with confusing/corrupting Eeprom because of ID mismatch or some such... But I always avoided that, booting a Naomi game in between.
That's probably related to an interrupt race and to the fact that they run in a completely different BIOS.My regionfree bios does work with the AW games, but it's very hit and miss... one time it works flawlessly, the next it won't even boot an hangs on a black screen. Unsure if the bios is to blame though, but strange thing is the Naomi games always work fine.
First, thank you so much, we appreciate all the work from all involved!That's probably related to an interrupt race and to the fact that they run in a completely different BIOS.My regionfree bios does work with the AW games, but it's very hit and miss... one time it works flawlessly, the next it won't even boot an hangs on a black screen.

Several people reported having that problem with Region Free BIOS. After more than a year working on the conversions so that you all can enjoy them, we dont currently have plans to add support for that BIOS. We'll see when our currently pipeline is less busy.
I have a similar setup and can confirm Naomi stuff boots AOK.First of all a huge Thank You to all involved in this AW to Naomi conversions and releases.
Tested them over the holidays with some good results. Except GG Isuka. That one boots fine and all. You can start, select characters. But when the fight starts it freezes up. Can someone test/confirm?
Naomi2 with regionfree bios (set to JAP) in an Universal Cab. DIMM 4.02. Booting with Pi and Piforce.
The Naomi side of things works pretty much 100%.
Im mainly just curious if its something on my side or if this game doesnt really work for anyone.
Well I tried JAP and Export Bios and I tried regionfree at various settings all with the same result. Inside Cab it crashes at the start of the fight and hooked to my TV/capcom board/supergun it runs for a few fights but it crashes eventually.It's all related to the timing (time it takes between power up and running the game).
Try with a different Naomi BIOS and let us know how it goes.
In the cab I have the standard Sega JVS wiring with control board. Outside with the Supergun I used the Capcom one. The JVS to Jamma.Could be related to the JVS IO you're using?
It works for most people,so it's the opposite.I am puzzled this thing works with some of you....
Is there only 1 JAP or Export BIOS for Naomi 2? I'm sure there is more. I'll let you know which one I used when testing the games. Actually most of the games I converted using a Naomi2.Well I tried JAP and Export Bios
