Something I was thinking about which led me to this Forum.
I am in the midst of building my Full-sized dedicated streets of rage series arcade cabinet and I can't wait until my dream is a reality, it excites me just thinking of it.
My plan on setup is;
*1x Genesis to Jamma modded
*1x sega megaplay pcb
*1x 2-way jamma switcher (hold down player 1+2 start buttons to switch boards)
*1x Streets of Rage II (megaplay cart, insert coin etc.)
*1x Streets of Rage 3 in 1 cart containing all 3 games
*1x 2 player/3 button (a,b,c + start) control panel setup **PURCHASED
*1X SET OF P1+P2 start buttons **PURCHASED
*12x metres of black t moulding **PURCHASED
*1x Coin mech/Coin door **PURCHASED
*2X joysticks **PURCHASED
*1x jamma harness **PURCHASED
*1x set of lockdown hinges for control panel **PURCHASED
*1x 19'LCD 4:3 monitor
*1x Scanline Generator
*2x Regular arcade speakers 4" **PURCHASED
*1x Min dong PSU **PURCHASED
*1x Slimline subwoofer enclosed with amp (hard to play SOR with that music and no bass)
*marquee artwork and side art still in development stages
Now, my question is, streets of rage II being an arcade version already available on the megaplay system is set for coin use. All I'll need to do to is switch to genesis board to basically play all the games on free play.
But, is it possible to hack SOR 1 and 3 to run like the arcade version of SOR 2;
*insert coin function
*no options menu
*maybe mode button mapped to insert coin?
*hidden settings menu for difficulty etc. via command (eg. Hold press up+hold a b c buttons)
*1 ups removed and replaced with money bags like SOR 2
This is not a big deal but it would be great to achieve a full arcade experience, especially with the first being my favourite of the series.
