PCB / Re: A comparison of CV-1000 (SH3) PCBs with their respective ports
« Last post by EOJ on September 27, 2019, 06:20:28 PM »
Updated with DSMBL! A second, more in depth comparison over the past year has given me a much better impression of the Japanese X360 port. For all but the very top tier players who are going for a WR with certain characters, you'll be able to score just as well on the port as on the PCB (also note the highest score with Sakura was obtained on the 360 port's Arcade mode, even with the missing Ice Palace slowdown). I really enjoy 360 mode the most (even more than the PCB!) -- I think because the clearer, high res bullet sprites make it easier on my eyes to survive Death Mode. If they would just tweak a few spots of slowdown it would be the perfect version of the game IMO.

BTW, although Tyjet's guide is excellent, his account (in section 15.0) of the slowdown differences among the modes in the port and the PCB is almost entirely wrong, at least in regard to the Japanese port (though maybe he is talking about the North American version, which I have little experience with in general and no experience with post-patch).

CAVE Auctions / Re: Auctions of Interest and PCB Shop Price Lists
« Last post by EOJ on September 27, 2019, 12:06:10 AM »
Tops updated their list this week. Nothing new, except a few price drops and a strange increase in their Akai Katana PCB from 412k to 415k yen.

This is strange because they've had that AK PCB in stock since last November, which for those keeping track, is almost a year.

I only started keeping track of the serial number instead of having to go through the process of saving screenshots/links of sales. It's an easy way to verify "proof" of a board's existence and sale. It has also helped me find when a YAJ lister has listed the exact same board a little while later.


Every time I've seen a YAJ seller relist a board that "sold" it's because the first buyer backed out (you can tell from the feedback history).

One problem with listing serials is it can change a sales tracker into a profit tracker. If the same PCB pops up for sale later (as is often the case in this hobby), people may start tracking how much profit that particular board made, because both sales (and the corresponding serial #s) will be listed in the tracker. And if the board is sold a third, fourth, fifth (etc etc) time, on and on it goes. I'd rather not go down that road because it has the potential to cause sellers a lot of grief (e.g. "hey! I saw on the cave-stg sales tracker that exact PCB sold for $1000 two years ago, why are you trying to sell it for $1500 now?!?!"). Lots of shops don't even list serials anyway (e.g. Tops, Beep, Game Kanaya, Mak, etc), making any attempt at full serial number listings futile.

A picture of the board (with or without a visible serial number) is even better than a serial number in proving a board's "existence". It's not hard to make up a serial number, after all.

The 1.0 MFs I have listed in the title rather than in the notes.

I see now! There is still an inconsistency here, though, because you list Ver 1.0 in both the title and the notes for DFK, but not for Mushi Futari.

I'm not so keen on listing serial numbers in this thread because some buyers like to keep that private (I also don't see the utility of this in a sales tracking thread). If the buyer wants to offer that info, that is up to them.

You should also list my Ibara Kuro which sold a few months ago for $3150 shipped.

BTW the 188k and 251k Mushi Futari listings on the sheet should be marked as Ver 1.0.  ;)

High Scores - Individual Style / Re: EOJ
« Last post by EOJ on September 25, 2019, 11:48:33 PM »
Got a new score in DSMBL with Windia on the X360 port (X360 mode) today! Went through the Ice Palace, skipped the Canyon, game over at Tyrannosatan.

This is over a billion more than the best score I got on the PCB (after owning it since last year and selling it this past week). Guess I should stick to the port.  :laugh:


3,584,596,739 - Stage 5-2 (Boss) with EXB - Windia
