  Hokuto no Ken

I'm lookin for Hokuto no Ken (fist of the North Star) for MAME.



Posted by $posts[username] on 12-18-2007 at01:04:

 

it´s available for nintendo nes(topia) and gba but not for mame. roms-->search "hokuto ken fist" --->choose the version you want. hf :o



Posted by $posts[username] on 12-18-2007 at01:46:

 

THEY ARE DIFFERENT GAMES!

There are 3 for the mame,

Hakuto no Ken (THE ONE I WANT)

HNK punch fury (or something like that)

and

HNK punch fury 2

Hakuto no Ken was ONLY ported to the Ps2!

(but since it's an anime series, there are alot of Hnk games)

i think i don´t understand what you exactly want. there is no mame rom available that contains "hOkuto" or "hAkuto", not listed in maws and the only game that contains "fist" is a jackie chan game.


.....................

after some google-action:

a 2d beat em up called Hokuto no Ken - Fist of the northstar was released in japanese arcades in the year 2005. it´s Atomiswave board and this isn´t emulated yet afaik.

hasn't been dumped or emulated like Malek said nobodys working on atomiswave emulation currently i've played it on ps2 its freaking awesome!



Posted by $posts[username] on 12-18-2007 at03:36:

 

DAMN

Well, what should i do?

Get into importing games?



Posted by $posts[username] on 12-18-2007 at03:51:

 

probably be ur best bet i don't imagine atomiswave will get emulated anytime soon last I heard with namoi emulation which is all atomiswave is they hit a major road block with copy protection on some of the chips and haven't had much luck since



Posted by $posts[username] on 12-18-2007 at04:03:

 

Is that what you did?



Posted by $posts[username] on 12-18-2007 at14:05:

 

all snk games that will be released in the future will be on atomiswave because of the better protection. in the past, games were released and emulated only a few weeks/months later. i understand them...but it WILL be emulated some time...maybe in the next 3-10 years Big Grin

Someone decoded cps3, but noone's tryin to decode atomiswave!?

there is someone, 100% sure for that. but the less people know who he is, how good he is, how fast he will get it done and so on. why not give yourself a try! :o



Posted by $posts[username] on 12-19-2007 at01:32:

 

because i don't know computer code -_-

oh well, I guess I can wait... or just forget about it

thats not quite true they ditched atomiswave in favor of Type X2 arcade platform

it took 8 years to crack cps3 dude and it was no walk in the park. Crack Namoi u crack atomiswave like i said before they hit a road block and haven't over come it since i'm really keen on the Initial D games on Atomiswave/Namoi



Posted by $posts[username] on 12-19-2007 at15:10:

 

Chuck Norris could decode it in a blink of an eye. Will someone pm him?



Posted by $posts[username] on 12-19-2007 at16:32:

 

Even if Naomi for example get emulated at the moment... It will be SLOW AS HELL!!

In case you saw the Disc flashing process of CPS3 game at the boot (For example in SF3) and how it make your CPU slower
Read this from MAME devlopers.. See the last line

Alright, but i'd like to close the discussion with advice.

With the exception of the money im gonna spend on gifts, Im gonna be able to buy:

Weights and clothes to buff up and look smexxy

mass effect for the 360, cuz it rox

or I could order a swapmagic disc for my ps2 and start importing games.

Which should i get?

well thats in mame someone will make a stand alone emu which I prefer with the necessary optimizations for playability I don't care much for emulation accuracy if u can't play the damn thing that and mame's constant need to change romsets


Davisxmonster go with the swap magic disc and start importing games i know u want to looks who needs them wen ur as sexy as me Tongue

Hi

I'm asking in this thread, because coincidentally, I'm also searching for an arcade version of Hokuto No Ken. Although I'm not looking for the newer one like davisxmonster, but the uncensored version of Last Battle/Hokuto No Ken that was released in 1989.

MAWS mentions the uncensored version in the history:
http://www.mameworld.net/maws/set/mt_lastb

I can't find it here on Romnation, nor anywhere else.
