Name of Fighting game [Solved]

Can't think of the name of that arcade game you used to play? This is the place to ask!

Thanks, but it's not fatal fury. However that game did cost me a lot of money back in the days.

More memories: I think one of the fights/areans was on some pipes/pipeline, and another (I think) had a waterfall in the background/ was on a bridge over water. And I also think one of the fights was in a sumo ring, but I'm less sure about this last one.

The asian fighting with his hands folded down in the punches I am 100% sure about, and also the fat/overweight bar browler kinda guy. I think the asian got half way down on his knees (took a low stance) and punched with both hands, one after the other, when striking.

Thanks!

I was looking around at some of the more offbeat versus fighters and I think I might have found your game:

Violence Fight, Taito, 1989.



I noticed a lot of characteristics matching your description. There was also a sequel in 1991 called Solitary Fighter. Have a look and see what you think.

Thanks Hierophant!

This is VERY likely it! I can't tell definately, because I can't get it in mu ROM list with the other games. I've downloaded MAME 32 0.109 and both "world" and "US" versions of Violence fight and I've put the versions in the "roms" folder. Hit F5 to update the list. Nothong. I've got plenty of other games in the list, but this game won't appear. Any tips?

THANKS!!!

No worries! :hello:

For that version of MAME, I suggest trying romnation first. If you still get problems after that, let me know and I'll look into it for you.

Nice! Getting real obscure! Really surprised you guys figured that one out!
