SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom Japanese Main Menu
SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom Japanese Main Menu

Since this game is based on the NEO-GEO platform the service mode will look like it would on any normal one slot MVS system. Unless your Japanese is up to date you might want to flip the #3 DIP-switch to off (up position)  for English menus instead of Japanese. If you want to play the game in Japanese just flip the switch back to on after you’re done with the configuration. Note: at least on my game the on/off for DIP-switch #3 is not reflected on the I/O check or the hardware settings screens (always shown as off). The options on the main menu are:

  • Hardware Test (geometry, colors, I/O check, reset and calendar)
  • Hardware Settings (shows the current DIP settings)
  • Software Settings (cabinet and game settings)
  • Book keeping
  • Calendar Settings
  • Exit

Player 1 C-button closes any sub menu except hardware test. From the test screens you have to turn off the cabinet to exit.


I haven’t dug into them all but the interesting ones are #3 for switching between Japanese (on) and English (off) and #7 for turning free play on and off.
