ive also been trying to get this working with little/no success.. ive made ones that do the setup screen type stuff that you cant get past (black w/ blue checkerboard type effect etc), usually with samurai shodown/garou replacements.. and ive made other replacements with stuff like kof98, which works in practice mode but locks up on dialogue screens in single/vs (shame cos everything else is 100% fine). also tried different p1 splits, 1 meg p1 5 meg p2, 3-3, 2-4 etc.. even using the original p1 renamed to p2.. usually just wont load at all. hazarding a guess id say getting those dialogue screens out or working is the key, but thats just a guess. even tried winhexing the kawax.xbe, no dice on that either. i'll have another try later on but atm i cant think of much else :/ the progess in above posts sounds promising as well, hope we get a working version soon cant stand playing fighting games on the pc. o btw, the util i used to cut up the p1 is called "X Cut".. same method as someone else was doing i think.
