DRGN-D (VS.System)

Post by naruko » Wed Sep 09, 2015 9:14 am

発表はされたものの、発売中止になってしまった VS.System のソフトがあります。
わたしはマドゥーラの翼とライオネックスというゲームのハードウェアを調査を依頼されました。

DRGN-D はこのゲーム専用に作られたサブボードの名前です。いままで知られている bank controller とは異なる仕様を持ちますが、単純です。ROM image は公開出来ませんが、私が調査したハードウェアの仕様は公開できます。

よろしければご覧ください。

I know you cannot provide the ROMs, but might you provide their hashes? Or pictures of the daughtercard?

So, this has been dumped then? I've been watching for this game for quite some time now.

Not usefully.

Naruko was permitted to examine the hardware, and document it, and has his own private dump, but the owner of the hardware wishes for no greater dissemination. I don't see any reason that this will change in the future, either: I think the only hope for archiving is finding another person with one ... or possibly being able to buy this copy for a large amount of money.

So between naruko and shoutimes friend who owns the cab where the post was made on lostlevels that's 2 copies I think. Shoutime stated a copy of the game, (a dump) not the actual cart could be purchased if the price was right.

I guess time will tell, why post the info on here, if no one has the game or can play it? Kind of odd if you ask me, or maybe im seeing it the wrong way. :D

Since it's understandable that Naruko is not in a position to share the ROM, would it be possible to request some screenshots and/or a couple short video clips? Is that crossing the line for the arrangement he has?

Does naruko speak English or should I have a translator send him my questions?

There's a few in the lostlevels thread...

I seem to have had success communicating with him using short sentences, machine translation, making sure that that translation is machine-translated back into English in an unambiguous manner, and including both English and the translation. He usually replies in Japanese.

ROM image公開して :mrgreen: …なんてことは口が裂けても言えないですが
ぜひとも基板所有者にサンソフトなど経由で復刻してもらうよう働きかけてほしいですね。
ハムスターが展開している「アーケードアーカイブス」であればサンソフトタイトルも扱った実績があり
最近はNintendo SwitchにてVSシステムのタイトルも配信を開始していますから
権利的にも移植難易度的にもそこまで問題はないはず…素人考えですけど。
もう3年前の投稿なのでこの声は届かなそうですが…。

所持者と連絡できる方法はすぐに見つかりますし、現地にいって話をしないとダメでしょうね.
外国からであっても日本に来るなら手伝うと書いたけど返事がなかったし.
