Show Me Anything Capcom

Kinda surprised there isn't a thread for this, although the “show me” thread mania has seemingly slowed down.

@“tomjonjon”#p69359 You gotta start a thread like this with an example!!

[upl-image-preview url=//i.imgur.com/9NFwH8w.jpeg]

I think Star Gladiator might be the first game I played where a kappa was called a kappa

@“thebryanjzx90”#p69371 now i need to know what other names kappa have gone by in video games! i had no idea this was a thing.

@“whatsarobot”#p69426 umm actually come to think of it I just have the one example, the original FF3, where the kappa status effect was renamed “imp.”

Not showing anything here, but just yesterday I was thinking about how strange it is that Capcom treats Mega Man, Resident Evil, Street Fighter, etc. with such reverence and always re-releases them everywhere for all audiences to enjoy… But why not the Breath of Fire games? The SNES ones seem to pop their heads up every decade or so, but what of the PS1 games (which everyone seems to agree are “the good ones”)? It seems like a weird blind spot in their history that deserves as much love as their other big IPs but just doesn't seem to receive it. Are RPGs really still so niche compared to these other genres?

@“Funbil”#p69450 Relatedly, I‘ve wondered why we’ve never gotten a BoF character in any of the Capcom Vs. series games. Considering how many obscure characters they‘ve pulled in (Saki, Jin, Hayato), it’s genuinely amazing to me that we haven‘t gotten Ryu or Nina or somebody. BoF definitely has more of a cult following than Cyberbots or whatever. It’s like they're secretly ashamed of BoF or something.

@“Syzygy”#p69470 Hm, I don‘t remember this. As I recall, the only DLC characters for MVC3 (vanilla) were Jill Valentine and Shuma Gorath, and then the entire expanded roster for Ultimate was leaked the same week Ultimate was announced. So I’m not sure when that tease could have occurred. But I was also not very involved in those campaigns.

Didn't Infinite have some Nina representation?

@“Funbil”#p69450 Just gonna say that I‘m not sure mega man is treated with reverence - there’s all that beef with Inafune that kept them from making new games for a long while, and when they do they‘ll only do it 8-bit style. I think their relationship with megaman is pretty fraught with difficulty. But I do agree it’s weird they're not doing anything with breath of fire. A re-release or compilation at least would be sensible.

Been wanting this for such a long time and finally obtained it:

28 years on the original battery and still working:

Will need to break the seal and change the suicide battery soonish but for now just going to enjoy the game for a while.

That‘s a fun one! I have the Saturn version but I do think I’d be a little more into it in my arcade cabinet. I have zero Capcom arcade games somehow!!

Would not dare put that in the “new games” thread but Capcom has officially announced Capcom Arcade 2nd Stadium which unfortunately will be a separate, dedicated app/icon in your system of choice (July 24) rather than an additional series of DLC inside the first app. Maybe this is related to some age ratings shenanigans, I dunno…

Bizarrely, six of the titles included this time will have also been sold a mere month earlier in **Capcom Fighting Collection** (June 22). The trick being that only Capcom Fighting Collection will allow you to play these titles online. Still, that’s 60% of the whole game so some of you might naively assume…

Nope! You get Three Wonders instead. Alrighty then.

And everyone who downloads the 2nd Stadium app can play [SonSon](https://forums.insertcredit.com/d/1548-monkey-games) for free.

@“Suteneko”#p73467 heck yeah!! I have a Super Street Fighter 2 cps2 and my brother has the DnD Mystara. Those dnds are so dang good. Maybe top tier Capcom brawler.

@“Suteneko”#p73467 Oooooh I am jealous of this setup! Looks like the guts of a candy cab rearranged to be more convenient for a desk. How‘s it all set up, if you don’t mind my asking?

@“TheFragranceOfDarkCoffee”#p73588

I made my own custom arcade stick using the REAL control panel housing from a Blast City cabinet.
I made a thread about its build over on another forum a fair few years back if you are interested:
https://www.retrogameboards.com/t/playing-with-my-custom-joystick-more-fun-than-games/1175

It is currently paired with my 20" SONY PVM but it was previously sitting with a 29" Tri-Sync arcade monitor that sadly died on me after just a months worth of use...

But yeah under my desk is a back panel where I have mounted a HAS Super Gun and a Meanwell Power Supply along with JAMMA Extension wiring. I've yet to mount any PCB though or tidy up the setup fully so not keen to show that off right now but I'll feature it soon enough if their is interest.

That is a can that keeps getting kicked down the line.

Three Wonders you say?

My Japanese Street Fighter II Dash Stack that I bought in Osaka:

[upl-image-preview url=https://i.imgur.com/OOLTMYN.jpeg]

I replaced the Program Mask ROMS with the English version of Championship Edition because I always preferred that version of the game and it is what I grew up playing. But really it is just a simple two ROM swap to change between the two versions of the game.

I also have the ROM board for Knights of the Round which is currently running de-suicide code

[upl-image-preview url=https://i.imgur.com/kJKSBCm.jpeg]

[upl-image-preview url=https://i.imgur.com/DYD1uF2.jpeg]

I plan to restore it back to original code and battery at some point and have a couple of spare working C Security boards to do that job:

[upl-image-preview url=https://i.imgur.com/pD24NrT.jpeg]

I also made myself a Ghouls and Ghosts using "Junk" B&C boards that were previously used for a bodged conversion:


[upl-image-preview url=https://i.imgur.com/7iag3EA.jpeg]

Sadly I have to swap between B&C boards when I want to change the game as I only have the one functioning CPS1 A Motherboard. My other CPS1 motherboard has a faulty custom A01 IC which is a very common un-repairable fault unfortunately, unless I salvage one out of a broken CPS2 Motherboard....
