I finished FFVII Remake, and then also went on and played through the Intergrade DLC. I really enjoyed both. Took me about 29 hours to do FFVII, then a bit over 4 hours for the DLC. Looking forward to FFVII Remake Part 2!

I was in the mood for some MMP this week so I gave 1.01 a whirl with Rafute. First 2-ALL in many years, and I beat my old 311mil score from 2011! Still don't know what I'm doing the the second loop.

VER 1.01
338,259,820 - Rafute - 2-ALL

CAVE Games / Hi Resolution Cave Artwork
« Last post by Codiene on March 01, 2023, 05:25:42 PM »
I am looking to print some of the arcade artwork (marquees, move strips and instruction card) for my Cab and maybe a custom CP overlay and backlit header panel. I have been wondering if there exists somewhere a repository of hi resolution cave artwork scans for all generations of cave releases? Ideally the arcade stufff but interested in anything that’s available really.

If anyone knows of place where this can be found that would be great if not I’m happy to try and collate any artwork into a single place for people to find easily.

Thanks  =D

Pretty cool update! I use a Mac now, so unfortunately I can't try it out myself.

As a followup to this:

I did my best to make adjustment for the MAME driver to have it behave similar to the actual hardware, but need people to test it out to see if there's anything weird here, or if it seems good to you.

This only change here is for the Blitter logic, which means that CPU slowdown (which is the majority of CV1K slowdown) is not changed here.

To help out:
- Grab the modified binary at: and test it on CV1K games
Alternatively build it yourself from:
- See if this seems more accurate to actual PCBs compared to regular MAME, and if theres any weird things happening.

CPU slowdown is still the majority of slowdown, so I'd recommend experimenting with CPU% slider in combination with this (try 50% or 60% or something, I dunno). Its not an accurate representation of CPU slowdown, but it will be closer than nothing.

Mushihimesama Cave Matsuri Ver 1.5
2011/05/23 CAVEMATSURI VER1.5

Thanks to this post:

I recall there was a bug-fixed version of this too. Not sure if they changed the MASTER VER for that. I remember people had to send their boards back to CAVE to get it done, soon after release.
Aquas improved his Pink Sweets Lace 1.00 score to 20,132,850, without a clear:

I finished Cosmic Fantasy 1 yesterday, played in the Cosmic Fantasy Collection for the Nintendo Switch. Took me around 10 hours. Quite an enjoyable early JRPG. One thing that surprised me is how similar the basic story is to the Star Ocean games. It is pretty clear the Star Ocean creators sorta "borrowed" the game's premise from Cosmic Fantasy. Anyway, I'm looking forward to playing the second game which is also included in the Switch Collection! However, that will have to wait as I'm moving on to play Snatcher (Sega CD). I rented it once in 1994, but I didn't finish it then.

BTW I used an excellent walkthrough/guide (in Japanese) for CF1, which really helped keep me on track. Here it is, if anyone is interested:

I also plan to finish up FFVII Remake on the PS5 this week. I'm currently in the middle of Chapter 17, so nearing the end.

Video of the mythical stage 3 boss final pattern glitch that lets you milk it with ease in Power style:

Very difficult to pull this off, apparently you have to get the boss's health down to the point where it just starts flashing red, then hold normal laser (and get lucky with the timing). Not sure if it is restricted to B-Power. Also not sure if this is possible to do in any of the ports.

After a bit of digging, I found a video of this on nico douga from 2010, with C-Power:
