    Dip switches?

    im kind of confused with how to use the dip switches. Ex. For Samurai Showdown, i want to turn on dip switch code 2-6. Do i turn on #6 in the second set of dip switches? Do i turn on everything from 2 to 6?

    i could of sworn i tried that in my randomized attempts last night

    i guess ill try again.

    Also, do they have to be turned on at specific times depending on the switch function?

    Hard dip setting on the motherboard.

    **Edit** Are you trying to lock the timer at 98 + get infinite health?

    Was thinking he meant MVS.





    Just turn on Dip 2, position 6 to a 1. This is assuming you have the Unibios.

    Yeah so was I, but they are soft dips and not hard dips(physical dips 1-8 on side of motherboard)

    I need to do a search and find a guide on what cool stuff you can unlock using those, the dev stuff on MSX was pretty cool. Its been years since I've touched them.

    http://www.neo-geo.com/snk/dipcodes/dipcodes.html <- here you go, debug dipswitch info
    http://www.randomhoohaas.flyingomele...-debugmenu.htm <- metal slug debug menus (metal slug 2 onwards) - great fun :-)

    I just worked out a fun one on Fatal Fury Special (if i remember right) - so you can get the game to give u an alt character select screen - easy way to play Ryo in arcade mode... will post it later when i have a mo'

    yes they do need to be turned on at specific times to enable certain functions - but certainly most of the time just dying and returning to the title screen and starting a game will make most work as expected... and remember if you are in the Unibios you need to set the "disable" field to enable for most things to work as expected I believe...

    yes, i would like to have a practice-like mode. Although, i have found that simply enabling some cheats has the same end result.

    i will go try your suggestions. will report back!

    Here's that Fatal Fury Special Debug Dip:

    00010000 00000000 ENABLE

    Put these in at the how to play screen and you'll be presented with a different char select screen (using their energy bar pics as selections) letting you select RYO in arcade mode and -any- opponent

    enjoy

    Huge update to the debug dipswitch list on the Wiki - found a few treasure troves of info on Japanese websites with debug dips for games that I hadnt seen listed anywhere else, also made it all htmlified so u don't have to squint to look at it anymore, enjoy!

    Raz; there might be a couple you could implement as cheats in next unibios update in there btw

    PS the puzzle bobble ones are rather cool (level select + funky weird mixed pb/BAM mode)

    hey m8 - all i've been able to get it to do so far via this is set the game to be in Bust a Move mode - but with the puzzle bobble title logo+ the BAM music+ingame gfx.

    The way i set it was to set dip 1-1 w. dev set to "enable", lose a game and do not continue, press start at title and set 2-3 and remove 1-1 on the debug dip info screen then hit D. it will put u back into a round, die again and don't continue, on returning to the title screen you'll see the effect of the dip code

    would be hilarious if Arkanoid is buried in there somewhere tho *Grin* It may just be an in-joke tho by Taito...

    http://shinjuku.cool.ne.jp/kagami007/dm0028.JPG <- ingame debug dip menu shot.

    obviously - this does mean that people with a Puzzle Bobble cart can now play BAM with the actual BAM gfx by setting the system region to USA / Arcade and debug dip 2-3 on :-) the reverse is prob true too...

    there is no ending in BAM mode tho when playing on a Puzzle Bobble cart - just checked...

    after reading up about this a bit more i reckon its the way you activate the original 'beta' of the bust a move game, hidden inside the Puzzle Bobble cart - i think Billy Pitt talks about it on his proto-page

    Same here, I was excited to test it out only to realize I sold my PB.

    I wonder if it means you can use a spinner.
