    It just reads "ranking" in the middle and the Kanji below are Japanese numbers for one to ten. So nothing special or even title screen material

    Is it possible that someone like Raz could take what is here and when more information is given, can actually finish it and do a release? Not knowledgable at all in terms of programming so excuse me if My question is ignorant.
    Looking to buy complete very good and excellent condition genuine/authentic AES games of the titles listed below. If anyone is selling them please send me a PM.
    No NGF markings, Game-dude void stickers or Sun-fade please. I want clean carts but insertion marks are ok.
    NONE at this moment.

    This thread really took off after last night. Thanks for all the hard work. It is an incredible find, a shame it was never completed.

    Just a simple W O W ! ! !

    Compleated and released, it would have probably been just another turd, now it's a living legend, just like the man, who found it. Indy would have been damn proud of you, Turf ;). Congrats!!!

    All this time I thought it was the NeoGeo scene that was obsessed with money.

    I remember this board when it was up for sale. I was tempted to go for it, but I'm glad I didn't, and that it went to a good home.
    It used to be so easy.

    Alternate theory. Gowcaizer was a licensed title. Perhaps the game began development prior to the license being secured which explains the 66 NGH number. If the mechanics are the same they could have basically changed the sprites and other art to the licensed characters later in production. It would be interesting to match up a move set for a character or 2 from the proto to Gowcaizer. Bad news guys, testing this theory will require somebody to (gasp) actually play Gowcaizer. Any volunteers??

    I was wondering the same thing, although I'm guessing no. If the game is not completed it wouldn't be playable, I suppose.

    Would love to be wrong, though - this would be amazing

    This is really awesome. Makes you wonder what other prototypes are out there waiting to be discovered.

    I'm just glad Turfy found this and not another one of these proto hoarders, or else non if us would have ever seen it.

    In my view this proto is so early in development (post voltage fighter or near completion) that it was not ready for submission to SNK to have a number assigned. You could almost say its possible the artists had finished voltage fighter and started drawing more characters for a new fighter (they had a story line outlined) while the programmers tidied up voltage fighter and removed the final bugs. The bosses probably did not want them in the office twiddling their thumbs.

    I can 100% say that data is gone. Every time I inserted the cards into my reader, the data on the cards changed and was garbage. Both batteries were fuzzy and green registering no voltage. I tested it many times before giving up.

    Data remanence is the residual representation of digital data that remains after the data has been deleted, erased, or removed.

    In sum, you need data recovery $peciali$t$.

    Damn, that sucks. Glad we got what we did out if it, but it should have been found by you close to tweny years earlier.

    Can this thing do a limited two player? No AI, but two people playing some of the more completed characters against each other?

    If it says ranking, then it's not the pieces of a title screen, but the pieces of a high score table screen.
    Some men see things as they are, and say why. I dream things that never were, and say why not.

    The article wikipedia links says data retention is at best 10 seconds at room temperature with modern chips.

    Yeah I went through some articles that basically said they chips would have to be frozen for it to retain a decent amount of residual data. I can see about contacting someone, but I think I know what their answer when I tell them it's been 20 years in unknown temperatures.
