MAME 0.131 - Tekken Tag and Soul Calibur now working!

#1
It finally happened! Tekken Tag Tournament and Soul Calibur work in MAME with the latest release. They still have some minor graphical and sound glitches, but are fully playable.

The Dreamcast and PS2 versions put the arcade editions to shame, but they still have a certain nostalgic charm to them. They run on the Namco System 12 board, which is essentially an upgraded Playstation 1.

Did anyone play Soul Calibur in the arcades long before it came to Dreamcast? I was floored by it even then. ("Whoa! Their hair actually blows in the wind!?") Also, the framerate was significantly smoother than the choppy Soul Edge, making the overall look of the game quite amazing for the time.

I think there are some people out there that prefer the arcade version of Tekken Tag but pretty much everyone agrees that the Dreamcast versin of SoulCalibur destroys the arcade version.

probably because you played them on interlaced crt monitors in the arcade
Gotta go in the system menu for Tekken Tag and disable the interlace mode. It'll look much better then.

Soul Calibur was working a while ago, Tekken Tag started working I think this release.

What countries are anti-samurai?
Wiki says: In the Korean version of the game, Mitsurugi was replaced by a Caucasian swordsman named Arthur because the image of the samurai was not very popular with Koreans.

I've come across versions of soul calibur in US arcades that used Arthur instead of mitsurugi, but they weren't very common. Apparently there was a "World" release of the arcade game where he replaced Mitsurugi as well.

the arcade machine I first played it on was one of those. I thought he was Mitsurugi wearing a disguise. :lol

That's cool, I suppose, but when are they going to get the Midway Zeus II games working? I have a hankering to play some Cruis'n Exotica for some reason.
