Final Fight CD Crashing on Second Level

23 Jun 2020, 11:19

I've had my Mega SD for a few months now and I really love it, but there's one game that is giving me trouble. I've tried a few different bin & cue sets for it and no matter which ones I use, Final Fight CD always crashes and freezes up at some point during the second level. I'm running the latest firmware on my Mega SD and have tried playing it on a Genesis Model 1 VA6 and a Genesis Model 2 VA4, and it always crashes on both.

Any chance this problem could be fixed in a future firmware update?

Just to make sure, did you use a 'redump' iso? Those are supposed to be the best dumps, like a no-intro for cd games.

Are you on the latest firmware. Ffight cd issues were fixed in a firmware release.

I've played through Final Fight several times without it crashing, I'm running the latest firmware and using the Mega-CD 2 Japan BIOS. Does it crash in the same location? Did you rip your own disc or download it?

I have a "hi definition graphics" model 1 US genesis, not sure what board revision, but I have no problems playing Final Fight CD USA redump version at least until stage 3 (after you beat up the car). I turned it off shortly afterwards because I get a little tired of the repetitious gameplay. I'm also using the latest firmware 1.04 r09

I especially wanted to test this game because the report sounded similar to what I experience with Lords of Thunder, which I cannot play on the Mega SD without crashes.

That's rather odd, because I played both of those games on my US VA3 model 1 Genesis over the weekend, and neither had any issues. Have you tried it on another Genesis console to rule out an issue with your console?

Can anyone else confirm?

Well, you folks were right! I had tried 3 or 4 different dumps of Final Fight CD and they all crashed on the second level, until this morning when I hunted down a copy of the Redump version and now it works perfectly with no crashing. So, lesson learned. For this particular game stick to the Redump version and there shouldn't be any issues =)

Cool good to know, I need to double check which dumps I'm using on mine... I try to stick to redumps for all but I might have missed some.
