This awesome little polygon system can be tricked in a lovely way to be able to take whatever game ever made for it. Using the Andy-sprinkled SSD, together with a slightly modified HDD-image, now allows for the older games to downgrade the system's firmware automatically. As it was, Taito only allowed the upgrade making a roll-back impossible, thereafter the older games wouldn't work.

There are, sadly, certain limitations with my current setup, even though all games boot and run and all drive-checks (under testmode) have completed without problems, the hardware itself needs its particular components to fully utilize the game. Using a Battle Gear configured board for i.e. Power Excavator will render the game not fully functional, as only three out of eight analog channels will be present. This problem can however be fixed by adding five EMI-filter to the main board, giving access to all eight analog inputs.

Games suffering from the analog shortage on Battle Gear boards:
* Power Excavator - only one joystick will be working
* Landing High - throttles will not work
* Razin Ping Pong - only player-1 analog controls work.
