Information

The game looks very blocky in low res but this mean it's backward compatible with older JAMMA cabinets with low res monitor.

Features Normal and Medium Resolution, Stereo Sound, an LED display for error messages, pinouts for PC-readouts and should come with an original JVS to JAMMA-connector (when you buy the game with a casing).

This game can run at Low Resolution or Medium Resolution, when run at Medium Resolution you have to use the left hand VGA port plugged directly into a standard VGA PC monitor as shown below in some screen captures.
