Looks like someone found another Aleck64 arcade game.
A gameplay of the unreleased game VARIANT SCHWANZER appears last year.

Unfortunately, they have not been dumped to the public yet. You have to wait the owner of the cartridge decides to dump it.

Just wanted to say thanks to all the people that worked on the patches for these games, and for the people sharing links to patched games.  Brilliant!  Are there any more of these yet to patch?  I saw the last comment there about an game yet to be dumped.

Uh sorry to revive a dead thread. No matter where I go I never see this mentioned on Aleck64 lists. Hi Pai Paridise 2 appears to also an Aleck64 game. Is this known? Being 2004 makes it the last known Aleck64 game
http://gfront.sblo.jp/article/136201625.html


And it's definitely the sequal because the first 1 looks completely different.
http://gfront.sblo.jp/article/54407439.html

These are both from gfront which is an arcade preservation group I know nothing about. I found them looking for all images related to the Aleck games. I know literally 0 people here care about Hi Pai, just wanted to make it known incase it wasn't already. Unless I'm missing something obvious this game doesn't seem to have a N64 patch like all the other Aleck games

You are correct.  It's also listed in wikipedia with the other Aleck64 games: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SETA_Corporation#Aleck_64_.28arcade.29

You may have to track down Zoinkity to see if he is still interested in converting these.  It would be the last one until the other two unreleased Aleck64 games are dumped.  The original thread is on Assembler Games: https://assemblergames.com/threads/aleck64-on-retail-consoles-poc.55041/  I don't think Zoinkity checks back there often since the major outage at the beginning of the year, but it might be a place to start.

I am actually interested in it.  I was looking into translating the Aleck64 games before I got sidetracked by SSSV and Sim City 64.  I think I have all of the text in Hi Pai Paradise already mapped out along with Tower & Shaft.  I still hope to get back to them some day.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like Hi Pai Paradise 2 is undumped.  I'd be willing to attempt the conversion if it were released and Zoinkity wasn't interested.  He would definitely be the better choice for hacking it though.

I could be wrong, but it looks like it is for sale here: https://www.suruga-ya.jp/kaitori_detail/181050153 or https://www.suruga-ya.jp/kaitori_detail/180050153

Looks like it. The first link includes the board, instruction card, manual and mahjong connector. The second one is only the board and mahjong connector. Cabinet, control panel or harness aren't included in either.

If you want to you can try my altra64 os. If it says that the crc is ok, I will try to port it to the unofficial official os... otherwise just select the Rom and turn off crc checking ('z' options)
Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth...

Zoinkity just released the last Aleck64 game, Hi Pai Paradise 2.
And already converted it to Everdrive format.  :o

Thank Zoinkity. Last year it was really bugging me that all but 1 Aleck game was dumped, but I figured Mahjong Games people usually didn't care about. I hope to play it soon. I learned how to play Shogi and Hanafuda to play the N64 games, so soon I wanna do all the Mahjong titles as well

That's awesome!  And not the only Zoinkity Aleck64 news for today:

https://www.romhacking.net/translations/4228/

He translated Tower and Shaft for the Aleck64.  Right before Sim City 64, I actually looked into translating this.  Made notes and even started extracting textures and things.  The storyline looked like it could be interesting.  The gameplay is simplistic, but frustratingly difficult at times.

Nicely done Zoinkity!
