I have also been passed info on another CPS-2 game in development ( reported on The Magic Box ).
'Capcom and Psikyo are co-developing a new CPS-2 arcade shooting game called 1944, this 2D vertical scroll shooter combines best elements from Capcom's popular 19XX and Psikyo's Striker 1945 series. Capcom will be handling character and graphic designs, while Psikyo will be doing the programming'.

The Marvel Vs. Capcom marquee is now available for download on our gamelist page, also available is part of the Rockman 2 : The Power Fighters instruction sheets. Thanks to Cakewalker for supplying them.

The emulation scene seems to have been set alight after the arrival of screenshots showing Aliens Vs. Predator like the one below running on a PC based emulator.
Aliens Vs. Predator

Before you all go jumping up in the air saying CPS-2 emu CPS-2 emu let me sum what I know about these pictures from their origin, Wangy2...
    These pictures are not from a CPS-2 emu. They are pictures taken from a set of Aliens Vs. Predator ROM's that were dumped from what could be a bootleg board named CPS-1.5 by the dumper.
Whether this is true or not remains to be seen but in all honesty I have no reason to doubt this information.

The English manual and a marquee for Vampire Savior is now available for download on our gamelist page, thanks SKRUNCH for supplying them to us.
If you have any CPS-2 related material that can be added to our pages please drop us an email.

The English manual and some artwork for Dungeons and Dragons : Tower of Doom is now available our gamelist page. Praise go to Lancelot_ for supplying them.
