Have you tried a different bios version?

Final fight is a very picky game so, yes please, try with a 2.00 bios (C or W) . This game is the only one that doesn't work with seek time emulation on (the firmware will just ignore that option when loading it), so, we habe been working on a more accurate CDD (cd drive commands) emulation that makes it work even with it enabled. It's working but needs testing with all games, so we haven't included it in the firmware yet, but if you still have issues with other biod versions, I can try to find a way to add it along with the current one and enable it just for FF CD.

Tried with v1.00 BIOS and this time it hangs at stage 5 clear screen. It occurs on random stages.

Will try with suggested BIOS versions and let you know the result. Thanks.

Btw. What are the recommended BIOS versions for the different regions?

I recommend 2.00w or 2.00c bios

No luck. Happens with BIOS v2.00W as well. This time at stage 3.

If you wish to try the fix, you can connect to our discord server and send me your serial via PM and I'll send you a fixed firmware. I've done a few fixes that might help final fight cd.

Found a faster way to reproduce the problem. Set the number of players to the minimum and let the character die. The game is stuck at the game over screen.
