That's next to criminal. At least Europe's Project Justice (like many Capcom games) didn't get as much content cut as North America.

Nah, Capcom (or as I think of them, "Cheapcom") didn't want to flip the expense of translating the entirety of some of its games like the fighting games with additional RPG or "board game" modes, so it would chop out those modes and just leave the core fighting game parts.

For example, see this FAQ about Project Justice: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/dreamcast ... faqs/14379

I know this sounds horrible to not post for this long (I was swamped with too many credits of spring college and summer work.. and swamped with bills >_<) but whats the end state of this? VS Link cables don't seem to be for sale at that link unless it was an uber-short time thing. :( I didn't even watch this closely because i've never seen an online project that didn't literally take 6 months to even see some first prototype whatever of even something simple so I just bookmarked it for the future and figured i'd check back. (tho i'd planned to check back more like may not sept - when car is broke down that bill comes first)

I'm still looking for a usable VS Link clone or several at the right price. I'm aware I could message people privately but I figured other people looking for this topic might want to know how things ended too. (since my look at the website URL shows... no VS cables that I saw so it's not self-obvious :P )

PS - whatever video link was just a few steps up is dead by now too.

Kevin said he put it back in his to-do list but I have no idea when he will get to it. I've tried to ask others to make clones but doesn't seem anyone is interested at the moment. I know how to make them, but lack the supplies to do so. Someone in our community was making them but stopped because putting them together proved to be rather difficult. I might have to invest in a 3d printer someday and maybe I can make some. Your best bet sadly is seeking on a real one on ebay or seeing if you can get someone on assemblergames to make one. They have an existing thread on making one.
