    Decent shape overall. I love these old CED movies because of the big art on the front. Not the coolest cover though but still a great movie.

    How's the quality on those discs? I've never heard of them until a few years ago - the disc never comes out of the case, right?

    Well, they do but in the machine. You insert and then pull the cover back out and the disc unlocks and stays in. The video quality is not bad, but usually the discs one gets are kind of shit condition. I mostly buy them just because they are movies I like and display them.


    If you are interested here is a pretty good video about them.

    Also, you can still get some replacement parts for them. My player isn't all that great but it works well enough. I just have it as a novelty as its kind of fun to fart around with some times.

    Really, it's insane to even get messed up into this stuff I suppose. The container becomes more important than the contents, in a way.

    I have also that SCB-U4 cabinet. I rather own this than big red cabinet cos they are so common. What language do you have on that metal panel where you can choose player and game? If you are planning to do restoration you could change those white buttons cos they are not original.

    Any CED disc that comes into your possession you need to leave it play fully start-to-finish, this will help with the potential skipping when you actually sit down to watch it.
    It's almost like "running" it in before the actual viewing. I have a spare player just for that purpose.
    But as you mentioned, if it's in really bad shape to start with, not much you can do with that.

    Also, you can still get some replacement parts for them.
    Yep, you sure can. From rebuilt or replacement stylus, to gear replacements, to the belts, etc. The folks over at the CED Magic forums are plenty helpful.

    Really, it's insane to even get messed up into this stuff I suppose. The container becomes more important than the contents, in a way.
    Nowadays it can be just a novelty or a collectible for some, sure, but I still use it quite regularly. I especially get a kick out of those "interactive" CED's. But you need the higher-end players to access all the features.


    I have quite a number of PAL CED's as well, but unfortunately no PAL machine to play them on.

    I'm eager to read your impressions and see pictures when it arrives because I'm considering purchasing one myself.

    The only console port made by TOAPLAN themselves, a real Japanese jewel for the great MD. I've been looking for it and trying to purchase a complete unit for years. Now at last, it's at home.

    A bunch of forty-something video-gaming nerds that are only keyboard commandos and mostly sedate pussies any other hour of the day cannot really be all that aggressive, can they? (My self included.)

    I love the lads here, this forum in general, and the mentality but lets not kid ourselves about this being some sort of dark web tough corner of the world.

    I have always read about it in several sites. I will appreciate more info if you have it to share here. Thanks

    At this point, what I know is that:
    The Mega Drive version was released on May 28, 1993, is the only console port of the game directly developed by Toaplan themselves. It was published by TENGEN in Japan and by Samsung in South Korea.

    Snow Bros. was licensed to Manchester's Ocean Software for conversion to both the Atari ST and the Commodore Amiga home computers in 1991 but they were never officially released.

    Capcom published the NES and GAMEBOY ports in US and Europe and it was developed by SOL.

    Haha I thought you meant the game was the only in house Toaplan port in general!

    Yeah, Toaplan didn't do the other Snow Bros. ports.

    Very nice.
    One of my grail games for the MD that i really wished i'd picked up years ago when it was a little less stupidly priced.
    A fab game as well, but most probably one i'll never own.

    Would be nice to know how the cabinet ended up there

    Do you have keys to it? I am missing keys to my cabinet and I dont want to drill the locks if there is another option.
    The front door has different lock but the mini marquee and monitor panel has locks that take circle keys.
    I would be interested of buying a key to those. It would be possible that yours has same locks than my cabinet.

    Unfortunately no keys to the back and the front doesnt have a lock on it. The coin slot was added on there by an arcade at some point and def isnt original. Not sure how it got there but the guy I bought it from was given it by hos boss. I guess it was sitting in some warehouse or storage.
    Do you have any info on the button layout or where I might be able to find a replacement CPO since this one is missing 1/3 of it?

    You dont have even key to top of the cabinet for mini marquees? I dont fortunately know where you could get replacement CPO. I have been looking for restoration parts from internet because I also would like new side stickers. I found a french company called neo-legend who had in their blog post similar cabinet but they have stopped doing restoration.

    Here is picture of CPO and original buttons:

    Unfortunately, once you played the arcade original, you can't really go back to this port, unless you just love collecting.

    And it's sadly not the only example.

    PAL Snes Sunset Riders and PAL Mega Drive Fatal Fury 2 are way more expensive than the arcade ones.

    FF2 on the Mega Drive is as expensive as getting a Japanese AES + FF2 lol

    I agree. I like the MD and Nes versions but still prefer the arcade version. I guess it's whatever floats your boat.
