I didn't post it earlier because you have to be a registered member to see their trading forums.

Do you have a link for that?  I'd like to see it if possible.

I was checking out the Arcade-Projects forum (very cool site) today and noticed an Akai Katana kit sold for $3500 last December. It had the wrong box (CAVE/AMI Ver 2 instead of the correct CAVE/Annex Ver 1), but the original art was all there.

Also, you should add that the 488,000 yen Akai Katana that sold at Suruga-ya was a full kit with poster, whereas the 468,000 yen Akai Katana that sold there was a full kit (no poster).

I recently watched taira118's excellent B-Shot replay from 2016 (an excellent STG player!), and noticed he wrote the following info in the description of the video:

360版の仕様について


◆本体の解像度によって処理落ちが変わります。
 処理落ちが一番少ない最低解像度の640x480でプレイしてます。

◆リプレイ再生モードだと何故か処理落ちが増える模様。
 実際のプレイではもっとゲームスピードが早いです。


English translation:

"On playing the X360 version:

-Slowdown differs based on the system's output resolution. I play with the resolution that has the least amount of slowdown, which is 640 x 480.
-For some reason, whenever a replay plays, extra slowdown is added. In a real-time run the game speed is faster."

For the second point, it seems he is referring to playing a game in 480i/p resolution, then watching the replay later.

I'll have to add info on the resolution affecting slowdown in my slowdown comparison thread.

So if your version only has two characters, it should be Ver 1.00, unless there is some unlock code for Casper in Ver 2.00 or something (they don't mention that in the webpage above).

Casper was unlockable on June 2009 in version 2.00 :)



You need to insert a credit, and while holding the C button on the 1P side enter the following (also on the 1P side):

A,A, Down, Down, Right, B, Left, B, Up, Up, A, B, B, A

I don't know. Maybe if someone asked them? It's not exactly a popular game, but Japanese aren't known for putting ROMs up for download.

Can you ask them for us, please? Would be amazing to get version 1.00 and 3.00 preserved and playable  :)

They just need to copy/paste the contents of the USB stick (they don't even need to create an image).

It appears you can have any version of the dongle plugged in.  I had a version 4.00 dongle plugged in and to my surprise it still runs 2.00 just fine.  Probably because it's bypasing the security check?  I'm not sure, but it definitely works without a 2.00 dongle.

Also EOJ, it says Version 2.00 when it starts up, I can get a screen shot of that if you want to see it.

Excellent work peg and zak.

How on earth is version 2.0 still around let alone 1.0! Would be interested to try 3.0 some time. I do remember EOJ saying years ago that some players preferred it. I've only really played the game with Lei tbh.

As I've said before, I can't believe this game didn't finish off Cave. We were so lucky to get two more CV1000 releases after this.

I wonder if that's why some of those on YAJ have gone for much higher than others? Perhaps bidders are privately asking the sellers what Ver is on their DS2, but the sellers are not providing this info in the listings.

I think Ver 3.00 should be easier to find than 2.00 because there should be more of them out there. I am quite surprised you found a 2.00!! Here's a video of Ver 1.00:

https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm7136723

According to the below site, Ver 1.00 had only two characters (Windia and Supe), but Vers 2.00 and 3.00 had three characters (Casper was added). In Ver 4.0 they added Lei:

So if your version only has two characters, it should be Ver 1.00, unless there is some unlock code for Casper in Ver 2.00 or something (they don't mention that in the webpage above).
