I got a GnG CPS1 conversion (JP version) and for some reason today it started just starting you at the 2nd level.

It didn't used to do this. I was changing settings on the dip switch and I dunno why this started happening.

Any ideas?

None of the DIP settings will skip a stage. Is it a conversion or a real Japanese resale version? If it's a conversion most likely someone burned old corrupt roms or something I know there's some French site with a conversion tutorial that links a bad set.

You can tell if it's legit Capcom because the eprom stickers will have a silver foil if you scratch them a little underneath the white.

He says it is a conversion.. that must be the issue. Return the deeps to default and see if it fixes it.

It did work completely fine at one point, why all of a sudden would it just flake out like this?

One of the program roms probably became corrupt...happens from time to time with old eproms.

Pull them all and verify.

The resale version allows you to select which stage you want to start at with the dip switches. I created a thread about it a while ago, it lists which settings go to which stages:
