System Motherboards

I’m really an 80’s games guy, but there are games of latter making that suits my preference and I won’t go around saying they are ‘too young’ for me. There’s really no age of consent when it comes to games. 😉 So I’m gonna get some nice mobos with carts that I find fun to play. I have a NEO-GEO system motherboard and a Jaleco Mega 32 motherboard.

CPS2 B-boards:
| Progear (Conversion) <-Now turned into a Darksoft multiboard instead

 

NEO-GEO carts:
| Metal Slug | Metal Slug 2Puzzle Bobble | Shock Troopers | Sonic Wings 3 | Super 138-In-1

Jaleco Mega 32 carts:
| P-47 Aces

Click for high-res picture Got this from a local collector for a Progear cart I’m waiting for. The noisy fan will be replaced by a silent Papst one. I will probably not get any more games for it but you never really know, right? :DGonna use the RCA connectors to hook this up to my cabinets subwoofer.

Click for high-res picture My first (and probably only) CPS2 game, the magnificent Progear. This is a converted Euro cart running the Japanese version of this game, so all the voices are included, but the service menus are in Japanese.A reason to have one monitor horizontal!More info here

Click for high-res picture I bought this from a swedish enthusiast that just had ran out of enthusiasm.It came equipped with the Universe BIOS v. 2.3. Apparently it has some difficulties recognizing some carts as what game they really hold. My Puzzle Bobble cart for instance is identified as Ninja Combat, making it impossible to change the language from Japanese to English. Well, you don’t have to know Japanese to play that game anyway. 😀 That’s not really my motherboard on that picture, I’m gonna take a nice photo of it soon. More info and even more info

Click for high-res picture When the game programming companies that I used to love in the eighties went all vs fighter game mad, this game showed up from nowhere and brought fresh air into the ‘run and gun’ genre. Thank you, Nazca guys forever, for creating this, the best action game series of all time. I bought this MVS cart from a special japanese associate to the swedish arcade community in a nice little business venture reffered to as ‘Japan-deal’.

Hey, I’ve got some nice artwork with this. Pictures here and here.
The first Metal Slug was of course a great success for the guys at Nazca, so they got to do it all over again. This time they put a bit too many things into it, causing crazy slowdows. They solved that by releasing Metal Slug X. See below in my game list.Bought from Fuijita, the japanese arcade PCB store of my preference.

Click for high-res picture I got some artwork too. Click here and here for more pictures Oh, what an instantly classic game this is. I for one did not put much cash into it when it first arrived. I guess I’m just not smart nor dilligent enought to enjoy this game, but it’s great to have, especially when you live with three girls. I guess this is a japanese MVS cart, since everything in the game is in japanese. Ironically, the label is in english. I got this from Fuijita when I bought my Metal Slug 2 MVS cart.

Bought from Excellent in Hong Kong. This is a great party game in the same style as Mercs, Commando or Out Zone. Drink a couple of beers, and fight terror. F*ck yeah.

Here’s another picture of the motherboard.
Bought this from a swedish enthusiast for a very nice price including the game cart Tetris Plus 2. I’m gonna try to find P-47 Aces also for this system. It’s really cool.

Click for high-res picture Only played this in MAME until I found it in Japan. I’ve always loved the original from 1988 and this is a pretty much faithful update. Not as good as before, but OK. More info
