Got in working....turns out it just needs the right rom.
However....the game itself is....well....picky?
I'm a retroarch guy and can't get it to boot with the cores I've used so far.
If anyone else here uses retroarch, then help me please figure out which core works?
Also....I'm mixed on this project. On one hand, three players with same character picks and different colors IS a welcome change. However, for us mame enthusiasts, I can play the original with the SEGA CD music as a hack (since the original OST doesn't even compare) and use XBRz filters to give the whole game an nice HD make over.
However, if I use this game as is I lose the amazing music AND I have to settle for inferior pixeled graphics, etc.
I'm glad this game is made and it is definitely a must needed upgrade. But having played Streets of Rage and many knocks off of Final Fight for years, I wish this game had even MORE changes. I don't know how hard it would be to give the characters an extra move for instance. Even a second special move like Streets of Rage where you have to push forward or press twice forward and attack would be a welcome relief. Also, if Cody gets a special power with the knife, then how about Guy gets something special with the sword and Haggar with the pipe? Yeah, yeah....I know ALL that probably would require more reprogramming that it is even worth. And I'm impressed by the effort that went into this, period! Capcom should hire you guys, haha. But, one could always dream, amirite? Thanks again for the free fun game!
