Sure, I guess. It doesn't crash or anything. It also lets you configure the keyboard controls.

The text and dialogue for the PS2 Act Cadenza was similar to the PC game. Act Cadenza for the PS2 has already been translated, so it might not be too much work to create a patch for the PC port.

PS2 Act Cadenza is a combination of two versions of the game: Melty Blood: Act Cadenza ver.A (Arcade Mode) and Melty Blood: Act Cadenza ver.A2 (Original Mode). It's not actually called ver.A2 but it's not yet ver.B either. For example, Ciel regains clash frames in ver.B (Arcade) that she did not have in ver.A2 (PS2 Original), and Ren can control which cat she puts down. If PS2 really was ver.B, then you'd be seeing glitches with Sion's super armor too(which is why ver.B2 was introduced in the first place).

I hear they're making a new Melty Blood: Act Cadenza ver.B2 port for PS2 to address these issues. Also, the PS2 version is slightly faster than the Arcade version, which is really wonky, since the Arcade version has speed settings of 100% (normal) to 60% (which is really 40% faster!)

Therefore, the new PC version of MB:AC ver.B2 isn't really a port of the PS2 version, it's a port of the Arcade one.

Can you clarify on the speed bit? Do you mean the ps2 version is set by default to run faster than the arcade version?

It seems so. At least, when you compare Arcade ver.A with the PS2 version, there is DEFINITELY a speed difference where the PS2 is faster than the Arcade default.

Well it's on the official website for those who missed it.

It seems that there'll be a 2v2 tag-team type as well.

But if if both players pick kohaku/hisui x2....that'll be 8 maids running around on the screen O.O


Oh one other bit of info, the collectors edition will include the soundtrack <.<


edit: I am totally going to enjoy neco arc chaos. Here's couple of vids that I saw while hunting for more info:

quick question:

someone broke the act cadenza arcade machine we had at our local arcade...you think i could buy off the pcb from the owner?

here's why:
if i own the arcade pcb, i was wondering if it was possible to backup the game itself into a mame format...if that was possible, then I'd slap that on my psp...

does that sound crazy or does it seem doable?

I'd be really, really surprised if this worked. And why on earth would you want AC on a psp...

oh, released the day after my birthday, nice. as for why i'd want AC on my psp? simple, the layout of the buttons is perfect to play, i'm already used to play MB on my pc using my psp as a controller. and AC on the go is nice. a quick fight between bus stops, during break...i can keep dreaming, until they release a legit psp version. it just seems like the perfect console for it...

As far as I know, Act Cadenza runs on Sega's NAOMI hardware, which is essentially a more powerful version of the Dreamcast. Regular Dreamcast emulation on the PC is spotty at best, and to my knowledge NAOMI games are not at all supported in MAME. Even if they were, I doubt the PSP would be able to handle them.
